Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried closer to the base? Additionally, a few ideas to consider, explore or try:

  • ensure that they are not in "Intercom" mode;
  • relocating the base unit. With 5.8 GHz operation and such a short/stubby antenna, it is prone to RF (radio frequency) and electrical interference. These interference could be brought about by Wireless Routers, computers, electronic ballasts of lamps, lamp dimmers and others of the same nature;
  • depending on the versions, the operating channel could be changed. It is possible that somewhere near is an identical system causing mix up;
  • if you are with regular telephone lines, consider having the lines checked by your phone provider;
  • if your telephone system is a package together with your cable TV and Internet, you may want to have your cable/Internet provider check/replace your modem/router/splitter.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    I had exact same problem. I tried changing battery but it did not work. Finally, i removed the power and phone line to the base and reconnected after 5 minutes and all the handsets started working.

If the three phones that don't work are the remote phones and not the base station then the transmitter in the base station has failed, I had a similiar Vtech phone system and this happened to mine, it was only 2 years old.

When the phone rings and the person answering the call can hear the caller the problem is: the caller cannot hear the voice of the person that answered the phone.


you can try to use a headset and see if it will work
normally if the caller cannot hear the receiver theres some problem with the mouthpiece. if the headset and loudspeaker works then you have to go to the store and have it fixed.
hope this help

One ring - noise like fax to caller, phantom call to receiver


Try unplugging all sets and call in. Do you still have a faxlike tone, like from an ALARM system or something else down the street?

Caller ID


Since it appears by default, I'm guessing that the phone is not ringing. It has to ring to display CID. You need to make sure that it is part of an ICD group with Immediate ring.
