Question about IBM 4900 4-Line Cordless Phone

4900 phone problems

About 11 months after purchasing the 4900 cordless phone the low battery light flashes and the battery doesn't seem to charge from either location on the phone. When I measure battery voltage at the battery it shows 4 volts, maybe the current is not getting to the handset? Office max would not warranty it so I boxed it up for a while but would like to get it working. Thanks

I have not used my Panasonic KX-TCD200CX cordless a Month. Now when I plugged it in, it does not seem to be charging. The screen is blank even after 5-6 hours of charging.Please advise what I should do...


Possible that the battery Voltage has gone BELOW the THRESHOLD level and so will take a long time to come up so that the display light ups. It is best to see if the battery is leaked, damaged or the connectors clogged. Test the voltage on the battery and replace if the voltage is low. Also keep the phone plugged on overnight so that the circuit warms up and clears all disturbances.

My iDect X1 phone flashes and beeps on and off when on the charging base


The sound and flash is when the contacts on handset touch contacts on base, if the handset is positioned correctly- check the contacts, wipe them over with a clean lightly damp cloth. If the problems persist I suggest new batteries which can be purchased from Idect directly by calling 0845 345 9677- they will be posted by First Class Post and do not charge P+P.

Iam useing sony ericsson w850i for past 1 year.suddenly one day it was switched off if i seem to turn on it is flashing the red light.and now iam not useing that phone any ideas to turn on my phone back.


Hello,

from my own experience and idea, I think that flashing light indicates low battery.

This is usually common with Sony ericsson phone, it flashes a red light once battery is low and you want to power is on.

Maybe should test your phone with another battery.

All the best.

Flashing red light


I had the same problem, blinking for no apparent reason. I shut off phone, removed battery, put battery back in, turned on. No more red light. Not sure if the charging routine gets stuck in some loop or what, where it doesn't realize it isn't charging anymore? I think it's supposed to blink while charging isn't it? Sure would be helpful if the manual said SOMETHING about it.

Okay, this solved it for me, so maybe it'll help others.

Basically, you just need to re-register the phones by placing each one on the base unit and leaving it there for at least five seconds after the charge/in use LED light stops flashing.

According to the manual, it's necessary to re-register each phone after a power failure or if the batteries get very low or die. If you're experiencing the "connecting..." problem, this will probably fix it!

My handset won't charge


Try charging it in a different cradle if you have more than one handset.  This has happened to me where a particular base will not charge a particular phone.  Once charged elsewhere the problem resolved.

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.
