My EM-50 works fine but uses batteries at a rapid rate. I would like to use an adaptor, but none of my plugs seem to work with the unit. What is the number of the plug which should be used?

Why doesn't the LCD display doesn't work?


Does the LCD not work at all? or do you mean that it doesn't display Caller ID information? If the LCD is completely dead, you'll need to get the phone repaired. On the other hand, if it's just the Caller ID that's on the fritz, try this: unplug the base from the power socket; remove any batteries in both the base and the handset; wait one minute; plug the base back into the wall and replace all batteries. This will reset the Caller ID so it works again. (Depending on the phone you may or may not lose settings and memorized numbers.) If this doesn't help, the problem will require a professional repair.

Our DECT 6.0 4 phone system has been working fine for well over 1 year. All of the sudden when you dial out and the person on the other end answers they can't hear you. If someone calls here you can hear...


Sit the headset units back to the main base one by one.
Make sure you do all of them at the sametime.
This will reset the DECT 6 security feature.

Swap out the rechargeable battery to rule out weak battery problem.

My response 75 since having ablip in power was


We found the problem was with the power. In our case, plugging the adaptor into the power outlet directly, bypassing an extension and checking the outlet was working with a lamp. The error lights you describe were the exact same that we were getting, caused by low battery levels.

Hope that helps someone.

Light stays on eight


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 know this is a very old topic....

According to the 1715's manual, the "F" means that the memory is full. Try erasing some stored messages and see if that helps.

Other products that use the 5.8GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. These products or equipments include: radio towers, page towers, cellular Phones, other 5.8GHz cordless phones, intercoms, or monitors. If any of these are in the area, they may interfere with the performance of the phone. Try relocating the phone.

Video displays, Televisions or Personal Computers can cause
interference on the phone if it is plugged in electrically with one of this equipment (typically on a power strip or extension cord). Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet without any other major appliance plugged in.
You can also relocate the base to another room.

Relocate the phone out of the kitchen area. Appliances may cause interference.

If the charge light does not remain on, clean the handset and base charging contacts using a pencil eraser. If it comes on after cleaning the contacts, you may need to charge the unit for 10 hours.

Make sure that the AC power cord is securely plugged into the base. If unsuccessful, plug the unit into a different known working outlet or turn on the switch on the power strip.
