SOURCE: My cordless phone in my restaurant is finally had

No, You must use an Nec telephone, thus the price. If you need it on one line only you could connect any cordless phone on the dial tone before the NEC system. This will ring and also you can call out but you will not be able to transfer from or to it and you cannot use any NEC system features.

Why is there no display on base phone ?

if you have had the phone for a long period of time the display on the top part of the phone witch shows name, date,and phone number under the speaker is gone it is best to buy a new phone there is no way to replace this for a cheap amount they have handheld cordless phones you can purchase at wal*mart for the same price of the repair hope this helps you understand a bit more on why your display isn't showing .

Phone line is busy, but the cordless phone is hung up

If the line is busy, there's a phone off the hook somewhere or there's a bad phone jack or line cord. If this is the only phone on the line, disconnect the AC power adapter from the base and also disconnect the battery in the handset. On both units, press a couple of buttons to drain off stored charge. After a minute or so, reconnect the battery and base power, and see if the line is free. Sometimes, especially in hot weather when lots of people using air conditioners or storms can cause power line glitches, the computer in the phone gets confused. This process resets everything and may clear up the trouble.

If you don't have another phone and the trouble continues after trying the reset, see if you can borrow another phone from someone for testing. If that fixes the trouble you need a new phone.

Your phone line itself might have a problem that is causing your phone service provider to think your line is in use. There may be water in the line or some other fault outside, or some problem on your inside wiring. (A friend had a problem after she plugged in a new phone, and it turned out one of the prongs in the jack had bent and was touching the one next to it. In another case, a phone jack that had gotten wet had corroded and was shorted.)

If you have other phones on the line, disconnect them all from their jacks. Reconnect one and see if the line is free. Then you can reconnect the others, checking each time. This will let you determine which one is causing the problem.

This kind of problem can be frustrating, but it can be solved. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Bluetooth prob

Last I checked, Zodiacs are not phones, but are able to connect to a bluetooth enabled phone. Google a chord for it, Google is always your friend.

I am having problem with my cordless phone.

Another tip is to remove the battery from the handset for at least 5 seconds. You might want to get a voltage meter and check the voltage on that new battery - maybe it isn't charging properly.

GE Model 29265 Trimline Memory Phone

I just purchased the Trimline Model 29265 phone and in the instructions it says that it can be wall mounted if you reverse the handset hook in the base? Where is the handset hook and how do you reverse it. Nothing in the instructions tells you where it is nor how to fix it.

This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.

Cordless phone doesnt disconnect?

one thing you could check immediately is the filter, they do go faulty sometimes, just swop it with another one that you know is a good one.
