Question about Vtech VT 2651 2.4GHz Expandable Cordless DSS Phone System

1 Answer

Phone base set 'in use' led flashes when plugged into the jack

Received the phone(vtech 2651) from a friend, said the phone worked fine but the handset battery was stuffed. Brought a new battery, charged it, plugged the base into the phone jack and the base inuse led flashes. Checked the vtech web site & it says there must be a fluctuation in the supply from the phone line. I live close to the end of the phone line system in my area, cannot get broardband internet & have a generally **** phone line at best. Can I amplify the signals & supply in any way to fix this or filter the supply to the vtech phone to control the fluctuations. Cheers.

As is usually the case, a very simple solution in the end. Always check every thing even if the info supplied is from a qualified person. The phone came with the wall jack to base cord but it wasn't the origonal one so the phone thought the line was busy because it wasn't receiving any voltage supply as the plug into the base set had transposed 1 with 2 & 3 with 4. Damn I hate it when its that easy. I was talking to another mate about it and he said he had a similar fault to mine & he thought the cord was the issue & he was correct.

Thanks for your time

Brent.

My phone vtech dect 6.0 has on the display not registered.


My Dear:
Yes, that is normal for all cordless phones. they are really just a radio that sends a signal from the base/charger to the cordless hand set. when the power goes off the base does not work at all. Go buy yourself a cheap corded phone, and when power goes off plug it into any wall phone jack and then you can make calls.

I unplugged vtech tel to move to another location-now i have CL flashing and none of the phones have dial tone-how do i fix-thank you very much for your help


The main unit with the answering machine needs to be plugged into and outlet and also plugged into a working phone jack. The other units just plug into an outlet and speak to the main unit wirelessly. Make sure the main unit is plugged into a phone jack.

No dial tone! what do i do??


with your main base plugged in you should have lights on it, this means your getting power, now check if your phone wire is plugged into your base all the way. If you pick up your phone and hit the center button it should light up the phone and read connecting, then give a dial tone. if not i would try another phone in that same wall jack and try. If another phone works fine and all your connections are good try replacing phone cord to base and try it. If still no good check that phone in cradle is hs1. handset no. 1 and try. hope this works

Phones stopped working. They only read


first step is to unplug all power and phone connections from the wall for all Vtech phones and bases.

Second,plug each set and base in the wall for power one at a time.

Go back to the basics and pair the handset with the base of the unit.

Do this for all sets one at a time.

Phones stopped working. They only read


I'm not familar with the Vtech but I would suspect that all 4 units work off of the answering machine base. It sounds like it is seeing a dial tone.
Take a working phones like the wall phone, if it is easily removed, and use a known good connecting cable between the good wall phone and the jack that the Vtech is plugged into.
If that works, take the connecting cable loose and replace it with the Vtech connecting cable. If that works check the jack on the Vtech for crossed wire. If non found, connect it to the jack the wall phone was plugged into. If this doesn't provide satisfaction, let me know exactly what you did and what happened and we will go from there.

Problems with C110 & A110 Vtech Mirage Dect Home phones


Have strangely got the same problem - about the same time you posted this, but intermitently. I have isolated that the problem is in fact the handset itself, not the base unit. I eliminated a problem with the base unit by a) registering a different DECT phone to it. - The base still works fine. b) Leaving the handset switched off for an hour or so (press and hold the "OK" botton to switch off / on); then whislt it was working, registering the handset to a different base (Base 2). And guess what, after 30 mins the "BASE 2" message started flashing on the faulty handset.
So, if you already have an A110 extension handset, make sure it's also registered to base 1 and maybe try to get just the handset repaired via VTECH. (or just buy a new handset if they are available).

In Use LED flashing constantly


Your phone may have lost registration to the base. 1) Try disconnecting the power to the base and then re-connecting the power with the cordless phone in the base. Give it a few seconds, then see if it works. 2) Try removing the battery, wait 10 seconds, re-install the battery and set the phone in the charger.
