Main base not charging

The main base is plugged up but the light does not come on to say whether or not it is charging. I have tried different sockets, but nothing changes. When I press the talk button after about 5 seconds the phone beeps lights up and then goes back to how it looked when I first picked the phone up. Do you think I need a new charger for the phone?

My phone window just says 'Scanning....' It is fully charged. I cannot call forward from my main phone to the portable.

Try unplugging the base, then wait 1 min, then plug base back in. Once base is plugged back in re-associate the handset with the base by placing it on the base.

Hi it sounds like the problem is with either the base unit board or the board on the phone.
Do you have one main phone plugged into phone socket and the other two are extra phones that just plug into mains and pick signal up off the main phone if this is the case then the problem will be with the main base unit.
So first thing i would do is check the cable to the phone from phone socket is secure and hasnt been trapped under furniture or somebody triped over it and damaged the wire.
If this is not the case then the problem will be with the base unti itself and as the waranty has ran out this usually means that the phone was only really supposed to last untill this time this is the same with most electrical unit you buy.
The problem could be something as simple as a bad solder on the main board near where the signal is sent from the base.
I would say that the actuall phone is not to fault because if the main phone was at fault then the other 2 would work fine.
If you are ok at taking electrical units apart and can test the board near the signal output on the base it might just be that the solder has failed after this time.
If the phone works for a short while before it dropps the calls then it more than likely is a solder problem the thing is it is difficult to get a spec sheet for these phones i will look and if find one let you know.
Have you tried plugging a different phone into the phone socket to eliminate a problem at the phone exchange let me know how you get on and ill let you know if i find anythnig for you ok

I have charged for abt 20 hrs for set up. all I get is "Searching" Help me to move foreward.Sue DECT1560 This is a new phone I am trying to get it in service. I have no dial tone ,message "searching"...

First make sure the phone jack is working by plugging a working phone into it.

if it is working, use the same phone cable to plug into the base of your new unit.

if you do not get dail tone, place the handset into the main charging base. this should sync the phone up to the base. lift it out and try again.

if you still do not get dail tone or see searching, open the phone and remove the battery. wait 30s or so, plug the battery back in and set the phone in the main charger again. wait 10second and try the phone again.

Phone not working

unplug main base's electrical and phone jacks. wait a few minutes, plug everything back in then try to re-register the non-working handset following the menu instructions. make sure there is no phone charging in the main base at the time.

if the re-registration doesn't work, your handset is probably shot. you can buy a reconditioned one on ebay for under $30. take the battery out to find the model #.

Phone keeps showing out of range

If your handset is reading out of range. Check the the main base and make sure you unit has power. This can be done by placing the handset in the main base to see if the charge in use light comes on.
If your main base isn't getting power please make sure the ac adapter is plugged in and is warm to the touch. If not the ac adapter would be damaged.
Follow the below steps with the handset to solve your problem.
Press and hold the End key down and hold it.
Press and hold the # key down and hold it.
While pressing each of these keys down in order wait until the handset reads deregistration complete is seen.
Then release the keys and place the handset on the main base to register the handset.

Panasonic KX-TGA101S base not charging.

Here are a couple things you can try.

Clean the charging contacts, this can be done two ways. The manufacture's recommend using a pencil eraser. I recomend using a q-tip and some rubbing alchol. Just rub the alchol soaked q-tip on all the metal contacts on the bases and the bottom of the handset.

Gooo luck.
Hope this helps

Handheld won't communicate with the base

i have the same problem and it has happened infrequently several times. you probably have to deregister the handset and re-register it and rest the base and handheld to communicate since my model is different from yours there may be differences in how to go about it but for my model the suggestion is as follows:

go to for customer support here is a direct link to some frequentlt asked questions

DCT Series Multi Handset Phone - reset to have base and handsets communicate

I have a DCT Series Multi Handset phone and one or more of the handsets is not working, what should I do?
Try resetting the phone system by using the following steps:

1) Enter the "System Reset" menu, then "Deregister HS" submenu.
2) Press volume/up or down arrow keys to select the handset ID to be de-registered from the list, then press the OK soft key.
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. When de-registration is complete, "Deregistration Complete" appears.

4) After de-registering the handset, move to "Replacing the Base Setting" below. When you go through the deregister procedure if you get "out of range", That is okay. Go ahead and go to the next step.

Replacing the Base Setting
1) Enter the "System Reset" menu, then "Replacing Base" submenu. "Do you want to replace Base?" appears.

2) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a conformation tone. The base information will be deleted. When replacing the base is complete, "Please Register" appears, register the handset to the new base.

If your handset is reading out of range. Check the the main base and make sure you unit has power. This can be done by placing the handset in the main base to see if the charge in use light comes on.
If your main base isn't getting power please make sure the ac adapter is plugged in and is warm to the touch. If not the ac adapter would be damaged.
To resolve out of range follow the below steps.
Press and hold the end key.
Press and hold the # key.

Release the keys and select replacing base and press select.
You will see Replace base?
Select Yes and press select.
Now place the handset on the base and it should register to the base and allow for calls to be made.
