Question about Vtech Digital Cordless Telephone VT-2568

1 Answer

My current telephone socket isn't near an electrical point. I want a new telephone that incorporates B.T. 'Answer'. My current one runs on batteries but these are no longer made. For these reasons I need a socket in a location near an electrical point. Several years ago I had two telephone lines at the above address to enable internet access independant of the regular teleohone. The second line was 'disconnected' several years ago but the socket and line remains intact. Is it possibole to transfet to this line (there is a plug alongisde it) and retain our current telephone number. I will also need a secondary socket from this to enable internet wireless connection. I have tried to discuss this on the telephone but have met with difficulty because the advisors were in India and didn't seem to grasp what I was saying. When I conntacted 'Open Reach' they advissed me to write to you. I do hope you can advise me ASAP what course if action I can take. My A/c no is ww 3060 9628

First,to eliminate any confusion between you and any phone technician or electrician, phones plug into a "jack" and power plugs into an "outlet" and a light bulb plugs into a "socket" ;-)
Ok, now to answer your question, yes its very easy to move your phone line to any existing jack that you have in your house. This is a simple, physical job that only requires simple hand tools and shouldn't take a tech. more than 10 mins to do. you phone "number" is not effected in any way. if you have DSL or high speed internet through the phone company, then you really only need one jack not a secondary at the same place. DSL runs on the same phone line as your dial tone, just a different frequency. If you have other phone jacks in your house with phones plugged in then you just need filters to plug into those jacks and then just plug phones into those filters. They are small , about the size of a silver dollar. I assume you want your phone and computer with internet at the same place you were asking about. You don't need a filter there because your DSL modem has one built in .
You only have to worry about keeping your same phone number if you are moving out of town and want to keep the same number. This is possible. Its called "porting" a number. Its done in a dept. in the phone company that does dial tone programming. A coulple clicks on their computer and its ready for a technician to get it to your new house. Depending on the company there may be a charge.
I am a phone tech for the largest land line phone company in the U.S. and have been for 11 years and counting, so feel free to ask me any questions.

    oh BTW, the filters keep the DSL and dial tone from interfering with each other. so if you have DSL then thats why i mentioned it.

How do i get volume on my binatone 3325 handset


Press C/8 to unmute the microphone.

complete installations
Plug the power adapter
& line cord
into the base station.
Plug the power adapter into a 230Vac, 50Hz
mains socket, the other end of the line cord
into your telephone line socket.
Warning: Always use the line cord provided in the box.
Other line cords may not be compatible and may not work.
Warning: Only use the power adapter supplied.
Others will result in non-compliance with the safety
specification EN60950, and will invalidate any approval
given with this apparatus.
Warning: The Base unit needs mains power for
normal operation, not just for charging the handset batteries.
Installing and charging the batteries
Slide open the battery compartment cover.
Place the 2 batteries with the correct polarity,
as shown.
Slide the battery compartment cover back.
Put the handset on the base and charge for
15 hours before first time use. The handset
beeps when charging starts.
Warning: Only use the AAA size NiMH rechargeable
batteries.
If you have a Broadband Line
If you connect your telephone to a line with a broadband connection, you will need to
insert a micro-filter between the telephone and the telephone line, otherwise you may
get interference between the telephone and the broadband, which could cause
problems.
In a home with broadband, every telephone must have a micro-filter connected, not just the one at the telephone point that your modem is connected to.
If you need more broadband micro-filters, contact your broadband provider.

Connection and Conditions for use:
You can connect your phone to a direct exchange line (DEL) on a local
exchange with its own phone number; to an extension socket
connected to a DEL; or to an extension on an approved compatible
PBX. Do not connect as an extension to a payphone.
The ringer equivalence number (REN) of all equipment (phones, fax
machines, modems, etc.) connected to an exchange line must not add
up to more than 4, otherwise one or more of them may not ring and/or
answer calls correctly. This phone has a REN of 1, and most other
telephones have a REN of 1 unless marked otherwise.
Handset - Base Connection
1) When purchased, all handsets are already registered to the base unit
and should link to it when they are all powered up.
2) To use your cordless handset and base unit together, you must be
able to establish a radio link between them. The signal between the
handset and the base is in accordance with the normal standards for
a DECT phone: Maximum range up to 300 metres outdoors or 50
metres indoors. Be aware that:
> Any large metal object, such as a refrigerator, mirror or filing cabinet,
between the handset and the base unit may block the radio signal.
> Other solid structures, like walls, may reduce the signal strength.
> Other electrical equipment may cause interference and/or affect the range.
3) Do not place close to another telephone, a TV or audio equipment - it
may cause interference.
4) Out of Range warning. If you hear a warning tone during a call,
and/or the sound in the earpiece becomes faint or distorted, you may be
going out of range of the base unit, so move nearer to the base unit
within 20 seconds, otherwise the call may be cut off.

What is the problem with my mazda sting 160i 2002 model as soon as i use electrics like lights, wipers etc, the battery runs down. i've replaced battery, regulator and alternator 3 times already. It runs...


It sounds like something is drawing current 24 hours a day. When driving, the alternator keeps everything working. After you turn off the car, the battery is being drained by a short. The short can be anywhere, wiring harness, electrical connection points, etc. Have a mechanic check the current draw on the battery when the car is not running. It should draw a very small amount of current to keep the clock working. This will prove or disprove a electrical short. It is much harder to find the short. It can be expensive to fix if it takes hours to track down the problem. I would give the mechanic a time limit for diagnosing the problem to limit your out of pocket expense. There is nothing wrong with the battery or alternator. If they cannot find the problem within a reasonable amount of time. Trade in the car and buy another one. You do not want to spend thousands of dollars in repairs on a 12 year old car or a car with over 120,000 miles. I know you already put a lot of money in your car. Sometimes it is better to take your losses now than to keep putting more and more money into a car that is nearing the end of its useful life.

Panasonic kx tga931t


Remove the telephone from it's base; then remove the battery cover; disconnect the battery.
With the battery disconnected, press the power button on the telephone to fully discharge it.
Wait 2 minutes to be certain the telephone is fully discharged, then reconnect the battery and replace it on the base.

This will get you to the point that you can go out and purchase a replacement battery for these panasonic cordless telephones.

I have 2005 Chrysler Voyager - battery flattens overnight, and will not start. I am doing short journeys which I guess does not help. Nearly new battery, charging system good, and nothing apparently using...


The battery will not discharge unless there is a drain. When the car is shut down disconnect the negative battery terminal. Put a DC ammeter between (in series) the battery negative terminal and the disconnected cable. The drain due to electric clock and immobiliser circuit will be in the order of 30mA (0.03 Amps). Remove each fuse in turn and note any drops in the current drawn. At some point you will encounter a fuse which when removed drops the current drain, it is this particular circuit that is primarily the cause of the battery discharging and it will need closer inspection to detect the fault within it. If you can leave this fuse out to prevent battery discharge.

How do I receive faxes with the 240c


Hi,


Manual mode turns off all automatic answering functions unless you are using the Distinctive Ring feature or you are using an external answering machine on the same line as the Brother machine.


*Distinctive Ring is a function of your Brother machine that allows a person with one line to receive fax and voice calls through two different phone numbers on that one line. Brother uses the term "Distinctive Ring," but telephone companies market the service under a variety of names, such as Custom Ringing, Personalized Ring, Smart Ring, Ring Master, Ident-a-Ring, Ident-a-Call, Data Ident-A-Call, Teen Ring, SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing and BT Call Sign.
  1. Setting the Receive Mode
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Press the up or down arrow key to select Initial Setup.
    3. Press OK.
    4. Press the up or down arrow key to select Receive Mode.
    5. Press OK.
    6. Press the up or down arrow key to select Manual.
    7. Press OK.
    8. Press Stop/Exit.

Receiving Faxes in Manual Mode
  1. Lift the handset of a telephone that is on the same line as your Brother machine.
  2. When you hear the sending machine's fax tones (short beeps that occur at regular intervals), do one of the following:
    • If the telephone you answered is near your Brother machine or connected to its EXT jack(socket), press Black(Mono) Start or Color(Colour) Start.
    • If the telephone you answered is not connected to or near your Brother machine, press *51 (*91 for New Zealand) on its dial pad.
  3. Your Brother machine will produce receiving tones.
  4. Replace the telephone handset. Your Brother machine will begin to receive the fax.

< Easy Receive (Fax Detect) >
The Easy Receive (Fax Detect) feature allows you to receive faxes in Manual Mode by simply lifting the handset of a telephone that is on the same line as the Brother machine. Your Brother machine will automatically generate fax receiving tones, at which point you can replace the telephone handset and wait for your fax to be received and printed.

Your Brother machine's Easy Receive (Fax Detect) feature is turned ON by default. To adjust your Brother machine's Easy Receive (Fax Detect) setting, please follow these steps:

  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  3. Press OK.
  4. Press the up or down arrow key to select Setup Receive.
  5. Press OK.
  6. Press the up or down arrow key to select Easy Receive or Fax Detect.
  7. Press OK.
  8. Press the up or down arrow key to select On, Semi or Off. *In some brother machines, Semi may not be in the options.
    If you choose Semi, your Brother machine will only answer an incoming fax if you answer using its handset or by pressing the Hook, Hook/Hold, Hold, Speaker Phone or Tel/R key on its control panel.
  9. Press OK.
  10. Press Stop/Exit.

Note Here are a couple of points to keep in mind:
  • If Easy Receive (Fax Detect) is ON, but your Brother machine doesn't automatically answer the incoming fax when you lift the extension telephone's handset, press *51 (*91 for New Zealand).
  • If you send faxes from a computer that is on the same telephone line as the Brother machine and the Brother machine intercepts the calls, turn Easy Receive (Fax Detect) OFF.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

230 chauffeur doesn't charge. Batteries new and


hi, ok you mentioned nothing about the charger, is it built in ? or stand alone charger, can you try another charger ??

If you have a Electrical meter tester check that the charging socket pins do actually connect to the batteries if not check the charging socket,

of the three charging pins two are the positive & negative so should show 24 volts the odd one out the one in the middle just below the other two is the inhibit , that is normally grounded otherwords negative.

Sound like a loose connection so please check all connections if you are sure the charger is ok.

Honda goldwing 1100 1981 i bought an air pump pluged into the cigerette lighter and blew a fuse i hope everything else works but the radio and the cigerette lighter can you help?


A better answer than 'just replace the fuse', is to install a new lighter socket near the battery with a new fuse holder and a heavy enough fuse and wiring to sustain the current draw of the air pump. Connect the wiring (with fuse) directly to the battery connections. Hope this helps.
