Question about Vtech IP5850 Cordless Phone
We have had our phones about a year. Very recently they started displaying the message "warning! check batteries!" The manual said that means the batteries are either not there, or installed wrong. So I take them out and put them back in again, and the phone may or may not work for a few minutes, then becomes useless again. The message doesn't say anything about the batteries needing recharging, just to check them. The phones doesn't die quite as quickly in the base set as in the satellite base, but neither is dependable. Looking for replacement batteries on the vtech website, they don't even show replacement batteries for a 5850.
Buy a new battery from ebay.
just type in the search box, 80-5808-00-00
(the battery number)
You should be able to get a replacement for around $6 incl shipping.
This worked for me anyway. (Same symptoms you described)
