Question about Vtech i5871 Cordless Phone
My VTECH i5871 answering machine and phone has a problem. Anything you push on the phone shows "0" on display. Can you help with this problem.
I just replaced the battery
You are pretty close to the solution. The problem is the charge detection in the handset. All handsets on a cordless phone detect the battery level with an hexadecimal value in the memory. Each hex value equal a volt value of the battery. EX: 3.5v = 9B
3.6v = 9C 3.7v =9D etc... The problem is the hex value in your defective handset are all mess up. So 9B is not 3.5v anymore. Then your handset could last 1hr after foul charge or doesn't alert you before the phone goes dead due to low BAtt.

ARE YOU WANTING TO RECORD A MESSAGE THAT CALLERS WILL HEAR OR ARE YOU WANTING TO LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR SOMEONE YOU CALLED?

You have the answering machine set to announce only.
Press the menu button repeatedly until you hear the phone say "set announce only" Press the change button twice The first time tells you the current setting which is "on" the second time turns it off.

According to VTech the "CL" message alerts you to the loss of power and the need to reset the clock. Please refer to the user manual under the "Answering System Operation/Set the Clock" section to reset the clock.
If you don't have the manual, let me know and I will try to locate it.
