Question about AT&T 650530003417 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

AT&T 1487 Cordless phone: the mic is not working after I opened.

I followed the advice given for fixing the touch pad and numbers that did not respond. Now they all work well.

The NEW problem is that the mic has gone bad: when I call someone, I can hear them but they cannot hear me. Is there something wrong with the microphone? Can I fix it?

Thanks, in advance, for help!

Certain numbers on the hand held set do not respond when pressed. The nubers are 9 and, sometimes, 3 on the touch pad of the hand held. Why is this and how can I fix it? Thank you so much for any help you...

Sounds Like The Key Pad Backings Are Dirty This Happens With Time. You Can Fix It By Taking The Phone Apart And Accessing The Rubber Pad Behind The Numbers. Clean The Black Circles On The Rubber Pad With Rubbing Alcohol And A Q-tip Also Clean The Receiving End Of The Black Rubber Side Also Known As The Circuit Board. There Are Half Inch Or So Circles On The Circuit Board, Clean Them Off Using A Q-tip And Rubbing Alcohol As Well.

Please Note: Remove The Battery Before Attempting This And Find Any Screws That Are Holding The Device Together. After That Get A Small Flat Head Screwdriver And Work It Between The Gap Along The Entire Edge Of The Phone ( Starting With The Mouth Piece Is The Easiest) Please Take Extra Care Not To Break The Phone If You Still Cant Seem To Get It Apart Please Check Again For More Screws.

Key Pad buttons require more force to accept the input - loosing memory!

I have the same phone with the same problem and didn't want to part with it either. The cause of the problem are skin oils that seep down the rubber keys, and through slots at the base of the molded pad, thereby interfering with electrical contact. There is a vendor on ebay that sells a tape like pad with larger contacts that solves the problem perfectly. Go to ebay and use the following search term (I know this isn't the same model number, but its apparently compatible) :


The price is 5.95 including shipping. The repair pad will come with an instruction sheet, or you can go to the website on the instruction sheet and download about a 40Meg video file that shows you exactly how to make the repair. My phone operates with a nice light touch now that its fixed. Good luck.

Sticky keypad on cordless sets

Hi Mathew, After a few years, they all collect moisture under the pads. This goes for almost every cordless phone I have opened, regardless of the model. Normally, I can tell how much gunk is under the pad before I open the phone. If they are filthy on the outside, they are normally filthy on the inside, and the dirt and moisture migrate under and over the dialing pad, and all over the circuit board, it gets real nasty. Not saying your phones are filthy, but that is what I observed after opening thousands of them. Once it gets moist under the pad they grind the conductive rubber to a pulp, the harder you push the more it destroys the pad. Unfortunately, in your particular case, that model is nearly impossible to open without damaging it. It has no screws, but there are many plastic tabs holding it together, and if you pry in the wrong spot, in the wrong manner, and break one tab, the phone is ruined and you will have audio problems (plus just cleaning the buttons will only fix it for a very short period) if by some miracle you get it open and closed without breaking the tabs. The plastic is not just for looks, its condition can effect the operation of the phones audio. I wish I had a do it yourself answer for you, but in this particular case the only solution I can recommend is finding a experienced Siemens cordless repair facility. Good Luck

Hard to press

Hi Minus, It might be difficult to say this but there is the possibility that the phone's lower part that was submerged in water might already have a short in the keypad circuitry since being submerged in water of any known electronic product (not only phones) creates a malfunction on the submerged part. But you can try this out, try using a hair dryer to try and dry out any possible left out moisture on the keypad but dont get your hopes up because if this doesnt work, chances are you need to have the phone replaced.

Mic not working.

It worked well for me too! Thanks!! I was told I had to buy a new phone because the microphone went back. Took the receiver apart (4 screws in back of handset and 2 that held the board in place), cleaned mic with alcohol and a q-tip, and removed the rubber piece that kept the mic clean (inside of the housing), and presto, it worked just fine. The ribbon cable came loose upon opening up inside of phone, but I stuck it back inside the top of base and I was ready to go.
