Question about GE RCA 4-Line Speakerphone

I get a message Ac OFF

Does the visual message Ac OFF mean that even though I'm plugged into a live electric socket, the phone or the plug connector is malfunctioning and the phone is relying on the battery only (DC vs AC)?

Re: I get a message Ac OFF

Hi, Your assumption is correct. The phone is not sensing any external AC power. If you are sure that the AC cord/adapter is plug in to the mains, then it is either: 1. the walloutlet or where the ACplug/adapters is connected does not have any power; or 2. The adapter itself is defective. Hope this b e of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Display says "base unit no power" Is this fixable?

this is not a battery issue the actual unit that plugs into the phone socket and has a radio transmitter has no power. Look at the AC adapter plugged into the power point of the radio base device. Most likely someone has unplugged it or the AC adapter has gone faulty.
It is fixable check the AC adapter is plugged in and the power point is switched on. you should be able to buy another AC - DC adapter if it has gone faulty.

Att 882 power cord connector loose

If the plug (male) is smaller than the socket (Female) then it's probably the wrong model. You mentioned replacing the cord - be aware that in those low voltage power connectors there are a whole bunch of sizes. - you may have picked up one that is marginally different (hence the looseness) - electronic stores (Radio shack etc) usually carry switchable supplies (You need to know whether original is 3V, 5V, 6V etc...), and size of connector, and polarity (Whether it's positive on the centre or the outside. ) ALternatively, ring 1-800-722-9125 (ATT phone customer service). IF you look at something like
Amazon com Universal AC Adapter 15V 16V 18V 18 5V 19V 19 5V 20V 22V 24V... on amazon you will see what I mean by the diversity of connectors. Unless you have the original for comparision, it might be a crapshoot (i.e. wrong connector could "smoke" the phone - ATT customer may be best option.

These phones are digital proprietary telephones which means that they only work on panasonic telephone systems and not on normal analog lines. If you have a panasonic system the correct way is to plug the line into the " To Main Unit ", the handset into " Handset/Headset" and a normal analog phone into " To Tel ". If the wiring on the line jack was not done digitally the phone will also not work

Just bought phone no dial tone i move the setting to pulse

First thing to try is another phone in the wall jack if it doesn't work either you need to call your phone company. If the other phone works, make sure that the telephone is getting power from the AC electrical outlet. Try swapping the telephone cord with another cord. and lastly, unplug the battery from teh handset and plug it back in untill you feel it click into place. Sometimes the new battery connections are pretty tight and may not really be connected even though it looks like it is plugged all the way in.

Converting 120v AC adapter to 220v AC adapter

I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.

Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.

I hope i answered your problem.

I called support - took forever to get through
Told to unplug phone line, batteries, and AC, then wait 15 minutes.
Then reintall in order of batteries, then AC, then phone.
But once the AC gets plugged in, the light starts blinking again.
The technology of bluetooth with my cell is great, but the interface sucks and the light that won't properly recognize things is incredibly annoying. This one is going BACK....

Continuous flashing of Msg/Calls light on my office telephone

Have you tried plugging a different (ordinary)phone in to see what happens? It is possible that either your phone line or your voicemail system is misconfigured. If it helps, here is a link to the phone's manual:
