V-tech 2498 landline phone with cordless

For some reason the LED display pad is all garbled-with just black dots; I cannot read anything or program phone; I have tried different outlets to confirm not the electrical; other other phones light up etc and can be programmed but really want to use this particular phone. Can you please advise on how to fix this problem?

Re: V-tech 2498 landline phone with cordless

3 month old vtech suddenly stopped dialing out or recieving incoming calls. Numbers make beeping noises still and handset says "connecting" throughout. All lines were checked. Landline works fine.

Re: V-tech 2498 landline phone with cordless

Tip 1 of 2 Recradle the handset for 15 seconds, then lift the handset and press PHONE. Tip 2 of 2 If the handset is not responding normally, you may need to reset your telephone system. Complete the following steps to reset the telephone system: Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 2: Disconnect the handset battery. Step 3: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 4: Reconnect the handset battery Step 5: Wait about one minute for the handset to re-establish a link with the telephone base and then test the phone again. If that does not work, call the manufacture at 1-800-595-9511. Or take it back to where you purchased it and have then exchange it.

Why is kx-tg4223 cordless phone system is garbled ?

Keep in mind that cordless phones are basically radio phones. You have a "station" that transmits the signal to the handset (receiver) This means you are subject to interference from other electric or electronic devices and can seem "sporadic."

Similarly, just like a radio or tv.. your phone has "channels" typically 2 or 3.

So first. Make sure your base is away from any other electronics to reduce interference. Then if "whomever" calls and you still have issues, try changing channels with the handset. (read your manual)

I have philips landline phones. My main phone does not ring or flash when an incoming call comes in. I t won't go onto answer phone either it just rings out. I can pick it up and answer the call. i can...

Looks like the basic functions of the phone are correct. Remain the answering machine. Are you sure it can act as an answering machine?
If it can act as answering machine the reason it is not doing so may be the following.
  1. Answering function is turned OFF
  2. Answering function may be ON but the number of rings before it answers is set too high.
I suggest you try the following
Call you phone. Let it ring at least 10 times. If it can act as an answering machine it will pick up the phone and read the welcome message, because most answering machines (the recent ones at least) answer after 10 rings even if answering function is turned OFF.

The phones that can be answering machines usually do have a display that shows the number of incoming messages, or a LED that flashes to let you know that you have new recorded messages.
