Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
Have 4 Vtech 5.8 (3 on bases and one on answering machine), All just say "connecting" and then shut off. All worked fine an hour ago, Have another wall phone on same system--Time Warner Cable (not Vtech) which works. I've tried un-registering them and the problem continues. Called VTech (only had them 6 months) and according to them the warranty is expired (even though it has not been a year)so tech support is not available. Don't think I'll ever buy another Vtech product again
I'm not familar with the Vtech but I would suspect that all 4 units work off of the answering machine base. It sounds like it is seeing a dial tone.
Take a working phones like the wall phone, if it is easily removed, and use a known good connecting cable between the good wall phone and the jack that the Vtech is plugged into.
If that works, take the connecting cable loose and replace it with the Vtech connecting cable. If that works check the jack on the Vtech for crossed wire. If non found, connect it to the jack the wall phone was plugged into. If this doesn't provide satisfaction, let me know exactly what you did and what happened and we will go from there.
