If I remember correctly you can remotely connect to your answering machine.
When you call the phone and it greets you (assuming you haven't changed the code) press 19 to get it going.
You should then begin to hear your messages.
After you get past the 19 part (options are as follows)
1 ) Plays all messages
2 )Plays only new messages
3 ) (During playback) Deletes the current message
33 ) Deletes ALL OLD messages
4 )Repeats current message
5 ) Stop
5 )(While no message being played) Lists Available Commands
6 )Skips to next message
7 ) (While no message being played) Record new greeting
8 ) Hang up
0 ) Turn Answering Machine on/off
First try dialing 73#. Also try *73. Depending on you phone company, one of those will cancel call forwarding if it was inadvertently set. If that doesn't solve your problem unplug any answering machines or cordless phone base units that have an answering machine built in. Also unplug any fax machines or computers that are connected to the phone line. If this solves the problem you can plug things back in one a t a time and test to see which item is the culprit.
The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone: 1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.
My handset does not connect to the base station. It flashes momentarily, but does not find the base. The base station has a humming noise when the phone line is disconnected and the talk button is depressed. Hum is also present when the phone line is reconnected. The problem was resolved by replacing the 9VDC power supply. The hum disappeared and the handset immediately connected to the base.
It sounds as if the channel that the phone and base has selected during that session is bad, or being used by another system in the area. When that happens, try selecting another channel. You should be able to do this by depressing a button on the handset. Normally labeled "Channel".

Time for a new phone. Most likely there are some bad solder connections and they could be anywhere. A 2 year old battery should not cause such severe problems so I'd spend the money on a new phone before a new battery.
