Handset won't work

I got a call, but when I picked the handset up from the cradle it beeped and this message came on the screen: Please lift up and try again I can't use any of the function keys (menu, speaker phone, etc) either. Tried unplugging it, taking battery out and putting it back in, looked in the manual, but can't fix it.

Why do you have to press talk to answer the pdone

There has to be some action to tell the phone you're answering the call. Old phone did so when you picked up the handset. With this phone, you might have picked up the handset just to check the caller ID, so it won't answer the call upon removing the phone from the cradle. Besides, you might have picked up the phone to go out onto the patio or to the bathroom, for example. How is the phone then to know you want to answer a call?

Display screen shows "Will return soon" Would like

You need to cancel absent message on your phone. The method depends on which Panasonic phone system your phone is connected to. Following are the methods for three different Panasonic phone systems. Once you cancel absent message, your screen should return to date and time, if not then press * until it does.

KX-TA624 Phone System
Press intercom button, dial 750#, lift handset then return handset to cradle to end.

KX-TA1232 Phone System
Press intercom button, dial 7500, lift hanset then return hansdset to cradle to end.

KX-TDA100 or KX-TDA200 Phone Systems
Press intercom button, dial *7500, lift handset then return handset to cradle to end.

Handset out of range

I'll give it a shot. Have you tried re-regestering the handset? Press and hold down the "end" key (on most models it looks like a red handset) while holding that key down, press and hold the # key, after a few seconds the unit should beep and show:
Deregister HS

Useing the four-way key select "Base unavailable" and press the menu key The LCD display should then show :
"Which Base?"
Base #1

Select base one and then the display will show
"Base Unavailible

Select "Yes."

Your handset is now unregistered. To re-Register the phone to the base do the following. If the base unit has a charging cradle, just set the handset in it and it should register on its own, if you have a cordeed base, or the unit will not register when you set it in the cradle on the base go to menu and select register handset, then press and hold the # key on the handset for 2 - 3 seconds, it should beep and then start the registration process. If you have 6 handsets registered to your base, you will need to de-register teh non-working unit from the bases memrey before you will be able to re-register the handset.

My phone is stuck on speakerphone. When I pick up...

There are two things to check that you can fix. First, try replacing the handset (curly) cord. A broken wire in the cord can make this happen. If that's not it, watch the hookswitch. That's the plunger that goes down when you put the handset in the cradle, and pops back up when you lift the handset. If it's stuck down, you will only get speaker and no sound in/out of the handset.

I cannot use the cordless part of my panasonic KX-TC1221BXB. The following message is shown ''No link to base. Place on cradle and try again'' But even after placing back on the cradle, the same message is...

I couldn't find the exact manual for your phone but I would try to re-register the phone. Following are some instructions for similar models of your phone.

*To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone:
  • Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds.
  • Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard.
  • When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
  • Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
If this fails to help: Remove the AC Adapter from the phone base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

Good luck!

No dialling tone - just a beeping sound

It sounds like the handset is not 'registered' to the base station/cradle. Solution may be in the user handbook, which you should be able to download at :
