Can't hear caller or answer phone on extra handset

I can make calls on my extra handset but not answer. I switched the two phones and it works fine on the base, but then the other phone didn't work on the charger. These are relatively new phones and it was working up until a few weeks ago. The charger is plugged in and light is lit but not blinking. Do I need a new charger, a new battery? Thank you for any help.

This sounds like the register-deregister problem elsewhere on this page. Try holding down the "end" and "#" buttons for about 6 seconds to deregister the phones and then reregister them. I had this problem too and it worked for me.

I was using this site while trouble shooting this in the US...
If the customer has DSL with filters in the same system go back to the NID and Isolate the DSL,
test the caller id and call waiting caller id. If this works you have Data Bleed coming from the DSL.
Make sure there are not two sets of filters on the line. Tjis customer had a filter with the DSL modem.

Doing this we just fixed an on going problem for a field tech who was the second callout on a customer issue.

Hi, how do i answer call waiting on the kx-tg1311. The flash button is not working neither is it working by pressing the call button.

If you subscribe to both Caller ID and Call Waiting with Caller ID
services, the 2nd caller's information is displayed after you hear the call
waiting tone on the handset.
1 Press {R} to answer the 2nd call.
2 To switch between calls, press {R}.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I have KX-TG1033 - 3 Handset - I have ID caller service - can a message be left when I am on the phone?

When you are on the phone the caller will get a busy signal, unless you have call waiting on the line, then the caller will hear ringback. If you have call waiting you can answer the second call by sending a flash signal to the service provider which puts the first call on hold while you are connected to the second call but your answer machine cannot answer the second call because you have only one line therefore only one speech path. So the answer to your question is no. If you have the voicemail feature from your service provider then the caller could leave a message not on your answer machine but in your service provider mailbox.

I can hear caller on handset but they cannot hear me?

We just had the same problem with our AT&T 2462 hand sets. They simultaneously stopped transmitting, and though we could hear the caller, no one could hear us on the other end of the line. We unplugged the base from the power source, took the batteries out of the hand sets, waited 20 seconds, then plugged everything back in and they worked just fine. Hope this helps.

Handset problem

It sounds like you have a defective handset cord or handset. First, at your phone, switch your handset with another phones handset that you know for sure works. From your phone make a test call. If the caller can now hear you, the original handset from your phone is defective. If the caller still can not hear you, switch your handset cord with another handset cord from another phone that you know works. From your phone make another test call. If the caller can hear you, then your original handset cord is defective. You can purchase another handset cord from your local office supply store. Your phone uses a standard handset cord. It may be difficult to match the original color of your handset cord. Be sure to take your defective handset cord with you, so you can try to match the color. If the caller still does not hear you. Put your original handset and original handset cord back on your phone. Then plug your phone in to another wall jack, that you know works with another phone. The other phone needs to be an identical phone to yours (same number of buttons and same model number. The model number can be found under the phone). Wait approximately 90 seconds, sometimes longer, after you plug your phone into the other wall jack. Now, make another test call from your phone. If the caller can now hear you from your phone with it plugged into another working jack, then you have a defective station port or jack where your phone was originally plugged in at. If the caller still can not hear then you have a defective phone.

AT&T phone model E5634B

SOLUTION to AT&T Cordless Telephone/Answering System 4 phone set Model E5634B - Cannot answer incoming calls nor does caller ID work on phones.
Unplug the base for a few minutes, plug base back in, remove and reinsert the battery on each phone that does not work, then place each handset in the base for few minutes. Worked for me...all 4 phones can be answered and caller ID works!!! Hope this works for you... :o)

How to change Flash timing

The only reference to flash timing I can find in the manual is shown below for you, also here is link to manual :
I hope it helps !

If you have Call Waiting service and a call waiting
tone sounds while you are on a call, press talk/flash
on the handset or flash/find hs on the base to accept
the waiting call. There is a short pause, and then you
will hear the new caller. To return to the original
caller, press talk/flash on the handset or flash/find
on the base again.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your
answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer
after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
Setting the Record Time
Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
