The none base phone wont work

When I first got the phones (they are used), I plugged them in and they worked fine after they were charged. Now, one of them doesnt work. The one that isnt the base phone. When I pick it up and press talk, it beeps three times and wont let me use it. The screens are broken, so i cant see whats on them, but the problem isnt the battery, I tried it in the other phone and it worked fine. I tried to switch the outlets, but its not that either. I put it on the base charger and tried that, that didnt work. I unplugged the base phone and that didnt work. It worked when i first got it, but now it doesnt. I want to either know how to reset it, if there is a way, or just know how to fix it.

SOURCE: Out of range

I successfully reset Radio Shack (Uniden) 5561 handset by reconnecting the battery while holding the '*' and '#' key, then press the right upper soft key near the LCD window. The display will indicate "EEPROM/RAM cleared!!" and will return the handset to the factory default condition - looking for a base to register to.

I had the same problem!

What you need to do is hold the "end" and "#" key for 5 sec, which will deregister the headset then all you would have to do is place it back in the base for it to registered again.

SOURCE: Base handset out of range

Try opening the phone battery compartment on the back of the phone, disconnecting the battery wire, then reconnecting the battery wire. Solved my "Out of Range" problem - phone came back on and worked properly.

How do I link handset to base after power outage CS6529-3

You set the cordless phone back into the charging base. After a few seconds (longer if in need of a charge), the cordless will register with the base establishing the connection required to place and receive calls.

Why did my Panasonic phone quit charging in base unit?

Check the condition of the charge contact tips in the phone cradle, there are uaually two or three spring loaded pins that contact the phone charge contacts. Make sure these are clean and the springs still work. If these are good, you can check the output of the charger with a volt meter at the spring loaded pins, you can get the correct voltage off of one of the satellite units and compare it to the base. If the base is not putting out the same voltage the charger has likely failed.

On the main base no charge light, none of the phone works

Hi,if no power on the base it is normal that none is functional...make sure you have a power adapter is connected to Base...if no light it means either your adapter is malfunctioned or just it's cable is broken from the base side nearby testing purposes you can use other power adapters on the base...just to aee light is on..
Hope this helps!

My Panasonic KX-TG5576 5.8 GHz Cordless Phone, I have it charged. The base phone is working fine. But when I try to use the cordless hand phone and try to use it,m it says: No link to the base, move...

Set the phone on the charging cradle and press the ON button while phone is in crade. You may need to use the speakerphone button to do this. Turning the phone on while in the charging cradle will resync your handset with its base. Try it! It should work!

I have 3 of these handsets and none of them will hold a charge, two of them quit at the same time after a power outage. We can still use the base as a peaker phone and the answering machine still works...

the transformer (little box that plugs into wall) probably got hit with a power surge and are not giving the charger base enough power to charge the batteries or the batteries are old enough that they cant hold a charge. I am betting on the transformers though. you can test out one by going to a electronics parts store (like radio shack) and getting a replacement transformer take one of you old ones with you (it should be under $10) and if it charges your phone you know what the problem is if not try a battery you can buy them online for about $9.
hope that helps

2nd handset says unavailable and will not work

you have to put the second headset in the main phone charging base( ie the base where the phone line is plugged in) for a while (at least 30 seconds) for it to register to phone then you can go on to use it and charge it in its regular charging base
