Question about GE 21095GE2 Cordless Phone
Hey everybody, I'm having the same problem with this GE phone I eventually had with my previous cordless: some of the numbers are becoming unresponsive, requiring super-heavy pressure to get a response. It's only on the handset, not the base (but of course that's where all the heavy usage has been). I actually tried to take apart the handset to scope things out, but somehow couldn't quite get it apart. It's like there was an invisible screw somewhere. I sure hope this is something I could actually fix myself, since it seems to be a mechanical wear-and-tear thing, not a microchip, high-tech thing. Thanks! adam
Thanks! Worked for me!

Yes, that will work just as good.

The Problem is caused by a build up of a grease like substance between the conductive rubber on the key pad and the circuit board. To solve the problem you will have to take the handset apart. To do so remove the two screws in the battery area. Then using a knife that has thin blade separate the face of the phone from the back cover. Once that is done remove the screw that hold the chassis to the front of the phone. Lift the chasses from the front taking care not to break the wire going to the speaker. Take the Pad out. Clean off any residue on the chasses of with some charcoal lighter fluid applied on a piece of soft cloth and wash the pad of with soap and water using a tooth brush to ensure that you get all the grease of. The Pad is very fragile so take care not to apply too much pressure and tear it. Dry it of properly before re applying. I use charcoal lighter fluid on a piece of soft cloth to clean of any remaining residue on the pad. This will take some of the rubber but it is then able to make contact with the circuit board. Before closing up the handset reconnect your battery apply the pad to the circuit and check the pad to see if you still have the problem with any of the buttons. If you do clean the button again with the charcoal lighter fluid. This will solve your problem
