You did record a message on the answerer, didn't you? Mine displayed that until I recorded the outgoing message for the answerer. You do not need any service from your phone provider. The answerer in the base unit simply records the caller's message when you don't answer after a set number of rings. The manual tells you how to name the handset, which is a nice feature if you don't wish to use "unit 1, unit 2, etc".

How do I get the blue light and new voice mail cleared from this phone?

I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.

#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes.

reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in. It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.

There is a Do Not Disturb button on the base unit. Press it to turn the feature on and off.

If all else fails, read the instructions.

"4. Place the handset in the base cradle. The charge/in use indicator turns on, verifying the battery is charging. The unit will take 20 seconds to register and verify its security code. READY shows in the handset’s display."

I had the same problem. What worked for me, after several unsuccessful registration attempts, was to disconnect the phone handset battery for about 1 min and then reconnect the battery. Run the handset registration procedure again. It registered for me on the first attempt after the battery reinstall. Good luck.

Handset won't charge


Not using the handset for several months  would have allowed corrosion to develop on the charging contacts.  You have to use cotton buds and a strong solvent to clean the charging contacts.

Alternately, it may be that the battery is already dead and no longer would accept a charge.  These are plug-in types and are replaceable.  Incidentally, it is also possible that the corrosion developed on the battery connector contacts themselves.

Indication of corrosion would be dull colored contacts with bits of flakes - clean to make shiny again; the connector corrosion would be wet powdery greenish substance on the wires or connector from the battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Good morning! I just a bout 5 month ago this phone with its 5 handsets. In the last month 2 of the handsets dead, they are not operating ant are not charging. What I have to do. Thank

If they are not charging the batteries they will need to be replaced, but just to be sure! take a good working battery and switch out for the bad one and if the phone charges, the batteries are no good and proves the phone is good. Now! since your phones are a few months old you may still have warranty, I would encourage you to go back where they were bought to remedy the problem.

I took the post that mentioned removing the battery, waiting a few minutes and then reinserting it.  It worked.  Thanks to that person.

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.

Brand new cordless handset -- no dial tone, no ring!

I doubt it's the battery. As I understand it the base works fine and the problem is only with a cordless phone. Are you using an external charger stand for the cordless handset? These phones need to be registered to the base unit. That is usually done by installing the cordless phone in the base unit but you may need to do that shortly after insalling the battery or you could have a register button or setting.
