Why do both incoming and outgoing calls cut off after a few minutes on base hand set?


It could just be a bad battery, swap battery's and see if the trouble follows. If so it is bad. Also on these lithium battery's you build the life to them, when it is fully charged, do not just use it for a few min. and put back on the base, if you do that's all they will last is a few min. after charged. Use it and leave off base, then get in the habit of only charging it at night and leave off base during the day. The battery should last 6-8 hours or more if not in use a lot.

Buttons don't make any sound but can hear dial tone, speaker phone doesn't work, phone dies fairly quickly - would this all be caused by bad battery and what is the life of battery in a Panasonic cordless...


First off, try changeing from tone dial to pulse dial and try calling out. If that does'nt work, touch bad is probly bad. As far as the speaker phone it does not work off battery's it works from the main base which is powered from the A/C. And for the battery life, when you have a cordless phone you have to build the life to the battery, what I mean is : first time you charge it for 12-14 hours, after that use the phone and do not put it back into cradle, the battery will hold a charge for 8 hrs, if you use it for 30 mins and put back on cradle untill next use, use another 30 min and continue doing this the battery will build its life to 30 min and always die after 30 min, try to get into leaveing off cradle all day and charge while you sleep and keep off cradle all day.

MY CORDLESS PHONE BATTERY KEEPS DYING


You could try leaving it on charge a bit longer but if it keeps happening it either means dock doesn't charge the battery any longer (check for the charging symbol on the phone when in dock), or the battery in the phone has had its days.

GE cordless phone showing low battery (model 27958GE2-A)


Your phone may have a faulty sensor. If the only notification is that your screen displays low battery, and there is no interruption or disruption of service or quality to the product you can most likely leave it as is. If your phone is still under factory warranty, do not replace the battery, ask for a replacement for a faulty product. I would personally test the lifetime of your phone by leaving it off the charger for a day, and if it lasts the entire day without dying, then it is a problem with your phone's sensor / battery indicator. If the phone dies after a few hours of use or standby, then there is a problem with your battery and your battery tester.

Battery life


I have the same problem. Replacing the battery solves it, but for about 6 months, then the new battery holds less and less charge.

Phones not charging


you should definately throw the batteries away. They are probably close to dying and have very little battery life every charge. everytime you charge your battery it has less life in it so if it is old it might be time to replace the batteries.

I have a Panasonic KX-TG6051CM


I had the same problem, and it seems that the battery charging circuit in the handset had locked up, constantly charging the battery until it overheated. I was able to reset the circuit in my handset by completely draining the battery. Here is the procedure:

1. Remove the handset from the charging cradle, and leave it on for a few days until the battery runs out, and the handset finally turns off. At his point, the battery will be very low, BUT NOT COMPLETELY DRAINED.

2. Next, you must manually drain the charge remaining in the battery by shorting out the two contacts on it. Shorting won't damage the battery, since it is holding very little charge at this point. An easy way to physically do this is to remove the battery, and place a piece of thin wire across the the two contacts of the HANDSET. I am referring to the contacts inside the handset that connect to the battery, NOT the contacts on the bottom outside that connect the handset to the charging cradle. Next, put the battery back in, sandwiching the wire between the battery's contacts and those inside the handset. This will hold the wire in place. DO NOT PUT THE HANDSET BACK INTO THE CHARGER, WITH THE BATTERY SHORTED OUT.

3. Wait about 30 minutes for the battery to completely die. Remove the jumper wire, and but the handset back into the charger.

4. If the battery was fully discharged , you will get a message on the handset telling you that you should let it will charge for 7 hours. If you do not get this message, then either the battery was not fully discharged, or your problem is different from mine. Try the procedure again in Step 3 for another 30 minutes to discharge the battery some more.

5. If you get the "Wait for 7 hours to charge" message on the handset, then leave it in the charging cradle for the 7 hours requested. After that, it should work fine.

Let me know how you make out.

Phone loses connection after few minutes


I looked up the battery specs for your phone. They are 3 X 200mah= 600mah battery packs. They should last 8 hrs talk time with the headsets. This style of battery pack in my experience only last about 1 1/2years and sometimes longer and "sometimes" shorter...much shorter. I bet you never had problems when you first got them. Basicly this "battery design arrangment" goes back many years before newer battery technlogy was developed. But designers still insist on using them even today. They are cheap to make. ****Time to replace them with new ones.**** Make sure you follow the mfgs charging instructions: "After battery installation, place the handsets in their base unit or charger and allow to charge for 16 hours before use. You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to their base unit or charger after each use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12 hours. Average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight hours depending on environmental conditions, standby time is approximately four days." Good luck
