Re: how to open the handset

There are two screws in the bottom back of the phone only. when I open them, the bottom side will lift up, but the upper side (anttena and LCD direction) is still sticked.

My phones are not working at says out of range.

When a cordless phone says "Out of Range" or "Searching for Signal", there are a number of possible issues (assuming you are close to the base). 1) The handset battery may be low and not taking a charge. If the battery is more than a year old (including time spent in storage), replace the batteries for both handsets.
2) The base may not have power or an incoming telephone line signal. Check that the power adapter is warm (power to the base). Use another phone cord (and a second phone (preferably corded) to check for a dial tone). If a second phone has no dial tone, see below for diagnosing a phone line.
3) The phone base has lost the registration information for the handsets. A way to reset the phone is to unplug the power cord (from both the wall outlet and the phone base) and the phone data line and unplug the batteries from all handsets. Wait several minutes then plug in the base power and data cords and then reconnect the phone batteries. You may want to re-register the handsets. This is done by putting the handset in the main charging base for 20 seconds when the handset is fully charged. (See your phone manual) The phone was made by Thomson Electronics for GE; the manual is available here: .
4) The phone base or handsets are not transmitting or receiving the signals properly. This means that the phone needs repair or replacement. If it is under warranty, contact the manufacturer. Otherwise decide if the phone is worth the repair costs.

If you have no dial tone at the jack where the base is connected, check another phone jack on that line. If you still have no dial tone, find where the phone service comes in. Then open the service box and if the service is fairly new, plug in the RJ-11 test phone and listen for a dial tone. If you can't plug in the phone cord or there is no dial tone, contact your service provider. They will test and fix any outside problem.

If the problem is inside, inspect the visible wires. If you have a DSL filter as part of the inside wiring, check/replace it. If only one jack has a problem, open the faceplate and fix any loose wires. There are two faceplate designs - screw terminals or keystone jacks. For the screw-type, the conductors must be stripped and secured under the screws. For the keystones, the conductors are not stripped but pressed into the terminals with a punch-down tool. This tool is available at many home improvement stores in the wiring aisle. See for a diagram of the wiring.

If the problem is not in a visible part of your wiring, you may want a professional to find and fix the problem. Your telephone provider will be willing to do the work for a fee.

I hope this helps.

I have sony spp m920. I have had it for long time and it's really great. My problem is that the lcd on the handset is no longer working (it only shows fragments of numbers,etc.) this is the older model...

If the hardware/physical part is ok, then it must be the battery. Are there any screws to open the handset or a small compartment in the back where batteries may be?

Unable to dial numbers with a 1, 4, or 7. The

I'm guessing here, but is it possible that somebody spilled a beverage on the phone? If so, it can probably be fixed with a quick DIY project, but you will need to open the phone. To be safe, turn the phone off and remove the battery before you attempt this. Open the phone's handset by removing the screws that hold it together, then inspect the pushbutton membrane. If it has "crud" on it, remove the membrane, clean it carefully (you can use soap and water if you need to), dry it completely, and then reassemble the phone and reinsert the battery. That will reverse the effects of Pepsi, Mountain Dew, or ice tea about 90% of the time, and I hope that it clears your problem.

Receiver rattles. Like something loose inside.

The rattle is probably a weight. On purpose, they put a piece of metal in the handle part of the handset to give it more weight.

If there isn't a secret screw under anything in the handle, it's probably glued or clipped at each end. Those are the worst kind.
Sometimes a slight pressure at the break near the top of the receiver will be enough to seperate it to get a knife in the opening to pry it apart.

When you get the 1/3 part of it up, look to see if there isn't something else holding it. It may lead you to the tab or screw that does.

Before you destroy the handset, look under the receiver part on the inside. With any luck, there will be a part number. You'll need that when you order a new handset :-)

Need to open handset for kx-tc1025 cordless phone. has 2 screws in battery compartment

After taking out the two screws from below the battery compartment, the case will separate slightly on the bottom. Take a screwdriver and carfully pry the case open along both sides, working from the bottom toward the top of the handset. This will free the back of the handset from the primary components. It will simply snap back together when done and then replace the two screws.

Open the handset to clean keypad

Hi Sue,

Sometimes there's a screw or 2 inside the battery compartment, other than that they snap together.

Once you get the keypad out, wash it in warm water with a couple drops of dish liquid, rinse and pat dry. The Pc Board the keypad sits on can be cleaned with alchohol and Q-Tip.

Hope that helps.
