Question about Coby CT-P8700 Phone (CTP8700)
It's annoying I can only pick up calls if the handset is in the base. I press the talk button to try to answer and it can't. It says try again. Other than that both handsets function properly. I can call out. I'm hoping it's a setting or something, but I have tried different settings with no luck. Help please...
This would normally happen when the cordless handset was still in the charger stand. Are you saying it will still tell you to lift the handset after it's removed from the charger stand or base? I would not waste money buying a new battery as it is most likely not the problem but if you have more than one handset you should try swapping batteries. Removing and re-inserting the battery may reset the phone and clear up the problem as well.

Tips for a great answer:
Adjusting the Ringer, Earpiece and Speaker Volume
Adjusting the Ringer Volume
You can choose from four ringer volume settings (off, low, medium, and high) separately on each handset or the base.
With the phone in standby, press or on the handset or VOLUME or VOLUME on the base. The handset or base sounds the ringer at that level.
Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make the ringer volume louder. Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make it softer or turn it completely off.
When you hear the ringer volume level you want to use, stop pressing keys.
The handset or base will use the new ringer volume starting with the next incoming call.
Note: If you set the ringer volume to Off, the handset or base won't ring. Other handsets or base will ring according
to their individual settings.
Muting the Ringer (One call only)
While the phone is ringing, press /Mute or END on the handset or on the base to mute the ringer
