Well I feel your pain. I have the same machine and we had a winter storm about 3 weeks ago and had a power outage too. When I went to reset my answering machine it shows a F0 code which I can't find out what it means either. I also have tried everything, nothing works, none of the buttons respond and all i get is the F0 error code and constant beeping. I am still trying desperately to find a cure for this. Like you I'm afraid the power surge fried something. The manual gave one number which is 1-800-222-3111, I called and they couldn't help me because this was an old discontinued model. Grrrr...
I can give you the web site to get a copy of your manual that you can print or read:
If you find a cure for this please post it. I love this machine and think it is so much better than most of whats out there. I don't want to have to replace it but need to do something soon. Good luck, Barb
I have the same problem -- I returned the phone and got a new one. 3 weeks later, the power went out -- same thing. Light flashes but phone won't work.
I called Panasonic and they advised me to remove all the batteries from the handsets, and unplug all the bases for 'a few minutes'. This did nothing...when I plugged everything in, answering machine still would not work.
I spoke to my brother who is an electrician, and he said the base has a 'capacitor' in it, and will not drain down (so phone can be reset) unless it's unplugged for at LEAST a few hours. He suggested I unplug everything and remove the batteries and leave it all overnight. Will attempt this and let you know if this is a resolution.
I had this happen recently due to a power outage. I found my manual and to reset you need to unplug the unit from the socket it self AND the back of the machine. I tried just unplugging it from the back of the machine and this did not work. When I did BOTH things, the machine reset. At least give it a try...
I found the manual and it told me to unplug the machine both from the back and the socket itself. I did try just unplugging the machine from the back and it would not reset, but when I did BOTH things (which seems silly)...it worked and reset itself. It worth giving it a try...
