The red "charge" light comes on to indicate that the handset is inserted properly into the base. This is it's normal function. No further action is nessesary. :)

I bought a base and one extension phone - no problem - bought another extension phone and it will not register


The new phone must fit into the base cradle for registering to even be attempted. You gave no model numbers, it is likely your newest handset is not compatible with the rest of your system... but we can sometimes "cheat". If the new handset is displaying "To register, place on base..." but it simply does not fit -- try removing the battery cover and see if wiggling the handset will allow the "charging" lamp to come on: then wait to see if it will register. You can find the base model number on a small sticker on the bottom of the base, the handset model numbers are on stickers under the battery.

Phone not connecting


I am having the same problem. Had it last year, too but bought new batteries for all the handsets and that fixed the problem. However, this year I can't find the batteries anywhere!

Vtech phones loosing connection to base


You are pretty close to the solution. The problem is the charge detection in the handset. All handsets on a cordless phone detect the battery level with an hexadecimal value in the memory. Each hex value equal a volt value of the battery. EX: 3.5v = 9B
3.6v = 9C 3.7v =9D etc... The problem is the hex value in your defective handset are all mess up. So 9B is not 3.5v anymore. Then your handset could last 1hr after foul charge or doesn't alert you before the phone goes dead due to low BAtt.
