Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
SOURCE: Vtech M6896 phones do not work
Step 1: Press and hold FIND HANDSET on the main telephone base for 10 seconds.
Step 2: When the IN USE light starts to flash, release the FIND HANDSET button.
Step 3: Press and release FIND HANDSET again. The IN USE light will turn off and in a few seconds, all handsets will be de-registered.
Step 4: All handsets will show NOT REGISTERED.
To register a handset (register 1 handset at a time):
Step 1: Place the handset in the base unit or a charger that is connected to a power outlet. If PRESS FIND HNDST 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and place in base or charger again.
Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.
After a while the handset will emit a series of tones, the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset (1-4) when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

This worked for me. Unplug the power to the base for 10 seconds then plug the power back in. That did it for my "connecting....." problem. Good luck!

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.
This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.
What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

The phones need to be unregistered and then re-registered, which you can find in the troubleshooting section of your User Mannual or go to theis webpage http://www.scribd.com/doc/4088938/Vtech-i6789-phone-manual-i6789-manual-i3

SOURCE: phone screen just say connecting
If is says connecting then most probably its not getting a connection from the base. It could also be your telephone line. Check if the line is active.
Please rate if helpful.
