Question about IBM 2.4GHz Phone

1 Answer

Please Help!!! I have IBM-3900SL cordless phone. Recently, I changed a battery, and it stopped working... When I try to use the phone, it keeps saying 'connecting...' and shut off by itself. Battery is charged in full, and it seems like that the base and the phone (handset) is not communicating... Is there any way to reset or something? Thank you in advance! :-)

You need to register the base and handset... Here is how to do it:

Press and hold the "CH" button on the right side of the handset and the press and hold the "Page/Find" button on the base.... The handset should say "Registered" in a few seconds

I have a CTP8600 Cordless phone made by Coby in 2003. The battery pack for the handset is apparently no longer charging. Coby has stopped making (or supporting) this product. I would like to replace the...

Try taking the battery pack to your local radio shack store. They can usually match the original battery pack with a new, compatible one even if they no longer make the EXACT one that came with the phone. This recently happened to me with a panasonic phone bought around 2002. phone stopped charging, no longer make the phone, etc. I went down to radio shack and they fixed me up with a new battery (not exact brand/part number as original) and it worked. Hope this helps you.

My Sony SPP-930 cordless phone is about 15 years old. Just recently it stopped working. The base lights work fine but when I lift the handset off the base and press TALK, all I get is 4 beeps. I bought a...

The problem is in the main base, the cordless phone is unable to communicate with the base because it has stopped working that is why you are getting the four beeps. It is more cost effective to replace the complete phone system than repair. The only other possibility "and it is long short" unplug the power and the phone line cord from the wall and let it sit at least 30 minutes, this might reset the processor ic and get your system working again.

If the battery has two seperate wires red and black try changing them around - red at top , black at bottom or vice versa and recharge battery for an hour and see if it works.

This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.
