Question about Vtech CORDLESS TELEPHONE WITH DIGITAL ANSWERING SYSTEM AND CALLER ID IA6775

Open Question

Cannot call out on vtech phone

The model number is ia5878. There is an answering machine in
the base with a handset and 2 other handsets with chargers.
We can receive calls but we cannot call out. It says it is
connecting and it beeps 5 times and then says other handset
on or out of range. Can you tell me what we are doing wrong.

SOURCE: i want to add an additional handset to my vtech phone...the new handset is "searching for base" and requests a 15-digit number which is suppose to be on the base--there is no 15-digit number to input.

The 15 digit number shoudl be on a sticker on the bottom of the base unit.

SOURCE: VTech 5.8 mhz won't work

I found a solution that fixed this problem (at least for me). On the vtech site they said to unplug the base unit for at least 5 minutes. Previously, I had only unplugged the base unit for a few seconds. This time, I left it unplugged for about 10 minutes or so and when I plugged it back in, everything was working fine. Apparently there is some sort of capacitor that must discharge long enough to completely remove power from the circuitry.

Good luck and I hope this works for you!

SOURCE: Vtech ia5870 dual handsets model problem:

http://www.vtechcanada.com/manuals/5870ciben.pdf
from the troubleshooting section of the manual

• Unplug the base unit’s electrical power and remove the battery from the handset. Wait for 15 seconds then plug in the battery place the handset in the base unit and plug in the power. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and base to synchronize

not a guarantee, something to try

I can vouch for the second solution. It worked perfectly on my 2461 with two extensions. Even the vTech website was not able to provide a solution.

SOURCE: How to I reset the base for a Vtech VT-2431

This worked for me after lots of digging....If you have already tryed reregistering your handsets and can only get two-or three to work try this and deregister them and re-register. If your base model number is vt2431: Take the handset out of the base, press **335782 on the dial pad of the base. (do not have the line active or anything , just put the (2) stars and 335782 in (no spaces) on the base unit. This will de-register all of the handsets at one time. Then just re-register the handsets...

Can i call from one handset to the other


The model number listed is for a single-handset cordless phone, and the manual only shows a "locate" function from the base. It's handy when you misplace the handset, but it's not an intercom feature. You probably have a different model since you ask about calling between handsets. Some systems do provide this ability, but without your actual model number I can't give a definite answer or link to the manual for instructions. Here is VTech's manuals page, where you can find your specific model. The manual will explain how to use the intercom feature if it's available.

Not Registered Problem


I had the same problem and I JUST fixed it! First, unplug the power to the main base (answering machine) for 20 seconds. Plus it back in. Put the phone that says "not registered" in the main answering machine. It will say "press the find handset for 4 seconds". Do that. It will run thru a series of stuff and will find the handset. It works! Rich (jambones.com)
