Question about Philips Lands Phones

8 Answers

My CD235 handset will not ring with an incoming call. Also it will not ring when I operate the paging key on the CD235 base station to locate the handset. I have tried the hash/music key button located under the 9 to switch the handset ringer on or off. I only get an indication Key note symbol appear on the hand set display.

    I have reset the system as per the user manual. Having got Welcome Welcome displayed on the handset i pressed the paging button on the base station. The handset display lit up and displayed paging and there was a back ground noise in the ear piece but there was no ring from the handset.

  • tonybarber1 Jan 22, 2009

    Tried that. The handset while on the base station again lit up and displayed Paging but no ringer other than a single bird like cheep. One thing I didn't say in my initial report was that I can answer the phone normally if I have picked up to intercept a the base station as in call monitoring.

    I have tried that

If reset to factory settings and unplugging power and letting batteries drain out did not solve the problem , then the fone is faulty.

Contact Philips and see if they cover this as factory defect, in that case you may be offered a replacement.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, remove the rechargeable battery of the CD235 handset. The ides is to fully revert the unit back to factory default. Likewise, it may be necessary to unplug the base unit for an extended period of time. Reverting the baser and the handheld to factory default simulates a full hard reset. Unfortunately, it is also likely that memory and personal setting/configurations would also be erased. Thereafter, charge the handheld overnight and then proceed with initial set-up and configuration.

Should the above be not corrective, then we are looking into a possible hardware or software problem; both of which would require opening the unit for diagnosis. It may be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional. Should factoring in the cost of repairs as well as downtime, you may have to reconsider your options and consider simply purchasing a replacement.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and thank ytou for using FixYa.

Hi whether it is on main base..... For the handset, you can use the menu button to check the HS Setup settings. For the answering machine, you may have pressed the side button that turns it off. It would say "off" on the lcd if you did that.

Hi there,

for clarification on thisCD235 handset that has a problem on the ring mode when someone has to call you.
1. did you hear a dial tone from CD235 handset, ( presence of the dial tone means that the phone line from the box to the base and to your external handset has no problem.)

2. try do a self testing of some ring melody to the handset ( presence of a sound / ring means no problem to the handset system speaker).

3. do a self checking of the each handset that happen to be connected and shared into the same phone line.

  • doing this, you can use your celfone, or somebody on your house/area that has a celfone/phone unit that can make a outgoing call/s, dial / call the phone number on which all the hanset was connected on that specific phone line installed on your place.
Let me know, if all of this prefared double checking has made. Update us on what happen on a detailed sequence in event.

Good luck!!

One of my hand sets for my philips CD235 phone wont ring


The handsets have a set-up menu which allows you to determine the
loudness of the ring. find it and adjust the ring loudness to suit you.
If the handset still does not respond to incoming calls, you have a
problem with the handset. If so, follow the instructions on the
guaranty for a repair or replacement of the handset.

I cannot register the handsets to the new base station I had an 8100-2 base that quit working. I bought a new 8100-1 base. Can I change the MAC ID on the phones so they will accept the new base station?

Cause3:The base station is registered full.

Here is few more of additional info. if you want:

Register the Handset to the Base Step 1:
Place the accessory handset in the base station of the system. For some simple systems this may be all you need to do to register the new handset. If so, the LCD screen will read "Registration Complete."
Step 2:
Press the "menu" button on the base station, scroll down to "register handset" and press "ok."
Step 3:
Press and hold either "#" or "OK" (depending on the brand) on your handset until your hear the indicator tone. At this time the LCD should confirm the handset is registered.

I have a KX-TG6700 base station and 4 Handsets. When I have been calling on the handsets I have recently found that there is static on the line. Later I realized that there is problem with the DTMF being...


The KX-TG6700 manual at: http://www.panasonic.ca/PDP/OperatingInstructions/kxtg6700-oi-eng.pdfhttp://www.panasonic.ca/PDP/OperatingInstructions/kxtg6700-oi-eng.pdf

States:

For best performance
Base unit location/avoiding noise
The base unit and other compatible
Panasonic units use radio waves to
communicate with each other.
For maximum distance and noise-free
operation, we recommend the following:
LPlacing the product away from electrical
appliances.
LPlacing the base unit in a HIGH and
CENTRAL location with no obstructions
such as walls.
LRaising the antennas vertically.
LIf you use the handset near a microwave
oven which is being used, noise may be
heard. Move away from the microwave
oven and closer to the base unit.
LIf you use the handset near another
cordless phone’s base unit, noise may
be heard. Move away from the other
cordless phone’s base unit and closer to
your base unit.

Have you considered all these points?

Is there a way you can move the base station to another location in your house to see if the problem get better? I don't beleive your base station is faulty, I suspect interference from something.

I don't think the 2.4GHz set is causing any issues, but you never know, try unplugged it for a while to investigate.

If you do determine that the base station is faulty there probably isn't many options to get it repair other than sending it to Panasonic. May be cheaper to buy a new base station to go with your extra handsets.

Good Luck!

Registering a base station of Siemens Gigaset 2415 Cordless Phone


To register your handset to that base station, you must put the base station in registration mode at the same time you put the handset in registration mode. This is how you do it. At the handset you push OK when it asks you to register. If it asks you for the pin enter 0000 (factory pin) and push OK. The handset should say "registering base 1". Then at the base press the page/reg key down until it flashes (its to the immediate right of the cradle where you rest the handset for charging). That puts the base in registration mode and now its looking for the handset and vise versa. Now watch your handsets display. If it asks to to select an intercom number, then push ok and your done. If it says "invalid pin" then you need to reset your pin on your base (thats a different problem see below). If the handset times out and never registers, you need to repeat the process a couple times, you may have a bad base or it needs to be defaulted. If you need more help you can download a manual for free or get free technical help at the link below.
http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%202415%20User%20Guide.pdf

If you need to default your pin, you can do so but it will default the base station to factory settings. To do so remove the power from your base, hold your page/registration key down, and apply power back to the base. Count to 15, then let off the key. Turn off the power, count to five, then apply power again and follow the steps again to register the handset and you will need to reregister every handset that was previously running on it.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

No ring on handset


It may have lost the link to the base unit. Make a note of all the personal details, stored number, etc., then reset the handset. Do this by pressing the spanner button until the display changes, then press and hold the 'R' (delete) button until the handset resets. You'll have to set it up again, but at least it will link.
Spanner then 1 for ringtone, CID for volume.
Spanner then 2 for keypad bleep, 1=off, 2=on.
both cases press spanner to confirm changes.
