Question about Panasonic KX-TG1033S Cordless Phone
I have a panasonic kx-tg1034b cordless phone. Cannot turn answering machine on. When i push button to turn it on, all it does is beep about 4 times and the light will start blinking real fast and not stop. I tried unplugging it to try and reset it but did not work.
I don't know yet if this is a resolution, but I'm going to try this tonight. Unplug all bases and remove all batteries from all handsets -- leave this overnight.
Here's the history of my problem. I rec'd this phone for my birthday. 3 weeks in, power went off in my building and answering machine part stopped working. I took it back to the store, and they gave me a new one. 4 weeks in, another power outage and I have the same problem. I called Panasonic, and they told me to unplug all bases and remove the batteries in the handsets for 'a few minutes' to reset the units. I waiting 10 minutes, and replaced all batteries and plugged in all the bases again. No luck, answering machine still did not work. I noticed, however that the phone did not reset as I still had all my phone numbers and caller id history.
I called my brother who is an electrician, and he advised me that the base has a 'capacitor(sp?)' and it will probably take a few hours for it to 'drain' so the phone will reset itself. His suggestion is to unplug all the bases, remove all the batteries and leave everything OVERNIGHT. By that time, the power store in the base should hopefully be wiped out and the phone should reset like new. I will try this tonight and let you know if this works.
