SOURCE: 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.

Step 1: Press and hold FIND HANDSET on the main telephone base for 10 seconds.

Step 2: When the IN USE light starts to flash, release the FIND HANDSET button.

Step 3: Press and release FIND HANDSET again. The IN USE light will turn off and in a few seconds, all handsets will be de-registered.

Step 4: All handsets will show NOT REGISTERED.

To register a handset (register 1 handset at a time):
Step 1: Place the handset in the base unit or a charger that is connected to a power outlet. If PRESS FIND HNDST 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and place in base or charger again.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while the handset will emit a series of tones, the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset (1-4) when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

I had the same problem!

What you need to do is hold the "end" and "#" key for 5 sec, which will deregister the headset then all you would have to do is place it back in the base for it to registered again.

When the "check phone line" message appears, it is referring to telephone service and not the wire. It appears that your phone jack is "dead" or that there is no working service in the home. Do you have another phone that you can use to check the jack? Is there another jack that you can plug the phone into for a test?

I've just bought the above phone and connected tomains to charge batteries and handsets show "line chord error" is this because the phone line has yet to be plugged in?


yes, it will either show line cord error, or no line. After phone is charged plug line cord in and it should go away if not check line cord or try another known good cord.

"Check Tel Line": Do I need a new phone?


theres some thing wrong with the base unit, try unplugging it and plugging the whole setup at a friends or something, also if youhave a DSL line you my have to install a filter to seperate the data line and voice line. Its ole school but this might work.

AT&T Design Line Telephone 146 - static on line


Check the cord from the phone to the handset - wiggle both ends to see if you get more noise. Could be a bad connection or bad cord.

Can not tune the ringer on


You should be able to change the ringer settings in two ways when the handset is not in use. 1) Press and hold the Volume up/Down arrows on the handset. The handset should show the current ringer setting (High, Low, Ringer Off). Press Select. The current setting should flash and you will hear the current volume (if the ringer is on). Use the up/down arrows to select your desired setting; the phone should give a ring. Then press Select to confirm. Again the phone should ring.
2) Press Prog. Use the up/down arrows to select Ringer Volume. Then press Select and use the up/down arrows to chose a new volume. Press Select to confirm.

If your phone still does not ring, there are items to check.
Try a new telephone line cord and make sure that the base is plugged into a working outlet. Move closer to the base.
Make sure that you are away from other electronics that could interfere. Check that you do not have too many devices plugged into your phone line. Each one should have an REN (ring equivalence number). The total REN for all devices should be 5 or less; disconnect the other extensions/devices and test again.
Make sure that the phone is providing a dial tone and a test phone will ring when dialed. (I like to use an old corded phone for testing.) If a test phone won't ring, you have a wiring problem. See additional trouble-shooting information below.
Remove the battery in the handset and then reconnect it. Wait for the handset to synch with the base and try again.
If you have a DSL filter, try replacing it.
The manual for the CS5121 is available from V-Tech here: http://www.vtechphones.com/vtechphones/index.cfm/product-detail/?event=ehCatalog.productDetail&ProductID=55#documents .

Phone line testing:
Using a test phone with a new line cord, check for dial tone and ring at the first jack. If your test phone rings, then the problem is the handset. Move to another jack on the line and test again. If you get a ring here, the first jack or the wiring to the jack has a problem. If there is no ring, find where your service comes in. Open the box and check the type of connection. If you have a relatively new phone service, you'll find an RJ-11 jack. Plug in your test phone and check for dial tone and ring. If it doesn't work or there is no RJ-11 jack, contact your service provider. They can test the line and will repair any outside problems for free. If the problem is inside, you will need to look at all the exposed wiring for damage. If only the one jack is bad, open it up and check that the wires are properly connected. There are two types of jacks: one secures the conductors with screws, the other is a keystone. The keystone jacks require a punch down tool to press in the conductors. This punchdown tool is available from many home improvement stores in the wiring section. This site has a picture of how the conductors should be connected: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx .

If the handset is bad, you can try a replacement handset, if available. If the phone is under warranty, contact V-tech. Otherwise decide if it is worth servicing, these phones were not meant to be user serviced.

I hope this helps.

Just brought the phone charge for 2 days phone reads handset out of range,


First check if the battery is properly connected/installed. It's possible for the connection to be loose. If this is your situation, recharge the handset again. Then try again.

Next make sure that the base has power (plugged into a live outlet). With a regular corded phone, make sure that the phone line is working. (Make sure that you get a dial tone.)

If the unit is new, you may want to contact Uniden. The battery may have degraded over time in a warehouse. If you bought the unit used, try a new battery.

I hope this helps.

Humming on clarity phone. did not hum when first purchased. old at&t phone does not hum when plugged in on same line.


Have had this symptom from bad line cord or corroded line cord connection in phone. Also, could be bad handset cord. Try switching out the handset and handset cord from the AT&T phone to determine if Clarion has bad handset or handset cord.

Just brought a new Panasonic KX-T7330 phone, but not working (no sound at all) with plug in existing phone line plug. Used back the old phone with that phone line plug. that old phone is working normal....


It's pretty straightforward. We didn't get many 73xx phones installed in the U.S., but make sure you're using a 4 conductor line cord and see if it works on speakerphone. If it doesn't, it may have a headset/handset switch on the side or it may just be toast.

Just bought an additional handset for GE 27951 expandable 6.0 DECT Cordless. I press and hold the Page button for 5 seconds but the new handset will not register. Error keeps occurring "no base."


This exact thing happened to me. Same model number. No matter what I did, the new handsets would not register.

The solution? Reset the entire system:
1. On the BASE - Unplug from wall both power and phone line. Unplug battery from base handset.
2. ON the Extension phone - unplug from wall and unplug battery from handset.
3. Wait AT LEAST 5 minutes.
4. Plug back in BASE power.
5. Plug back in BASE phone line.
6. Plug back in EXTENSION handset battery. Don't plug in BASE handset yet.
7. Follow steps to program EXTENSION. When successful:
8. Plug back in BASE handset battery.
