So you have tested the line with a known good phone to know line is good. You may have issues on the port on the base where it may have corroded. Check the base where the phone line attaches and see if it appears discolored. If so try using a cotton swab and a little rubbing alcohol to clean the contacts. Another common problem I have encountered with phone cords is the locking tab breaks and thus you can have poor or intermittent connectivity. A white pencil eraser might also work to clean the contacts as well. Either way use caution as the connections in there are fragile.
Do you have a base and have you checked and deleleted the messages on the base? If you have a base that has an answering machine in it it won't stop blinking until you have erased the messages on the base as well. I would start with that first, but I'm unsure what type of phone you have.
I had this, seems that my phone service provider (AT&T) has a voice answering service that automatically connected to the new phone. Try checking with your phone service provider how to set up - mine was *98
A) Ok first try to disconnect everything and connect all the batteries and cable back. Charge your batteries to full. Then if it still Out of range, do this with all your handsets. - Disconnect the battery - Hold the * and # key on the Handset and put the battery back without releasing the buttons. (now your in test mode) - press the 2 softkey below the screen ( it's a factory reset, erase everything) - You will see RAM/EEprom erase on the screen -After the bip press end
B) OK! Now disconnect the power adapter from your base unit . -Hold the memory button on your base and plug the power adapter at the same time. Then the base will bip to let you know that you done it correctly. -after the bip press No.1 ( that's mean the handset 1 is de-registrer. - Now De-register all the other handset by doing the part B again. But only changer the No.1 for 2 then 3 then 4.
C) Disconnect and reconnect everything and use your manual to register your handsets with the base and your done! Everything should be ok !
It seem that the base is either bad or there is no power supplied to the base from the power adapter. Check and see if the charging light is coming on if it is then you have to replace the base unit and re register the handsets to it. If it is not then most likely the power adaptor is bad. It is difficult to check the adaptor with out a meter but if you know of a way you can try it. If the adaptor is good and there is no charging light on the base then the base definitely is bad. Good luck
