I have now discovered that when this was bought it had the latest software installed which I checked, now there is a new software release from Netgear, I installed this and the problem has gone, it is a shame that Netgear does not notify its customers that this problem will occur, instead it has cost me time and money in abortive calls. Having requested help from Netgear in 72 hours they keep sending emails "We are looking into it and a Technician is on the case"! About as much good as a chocalate teapot.It seems that you have to resolve everything yourself with the help of the internet, thank god for that.

The reciever on long distance calls complain of echo on their side I have a KX-TG4023

Echoes are created when you have a delay and has nothing to do with your local handset cordless or wired. It is the carrier that you are using that may be responsible for this problem. You need to contact your long distance carrier for this problem.

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: .

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: .

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.

There could be DC voltage on the ringer circuit. When a phone line is not in use there should be 0 Volts on the ringer circuit. Sometimes a device connected to your line can "leak" voltage on to the ringer circuit, and some phones will see this as a continuous ring signal.

1. Check all of the telephone cables and any power cables - are they securely plugged in?
2. Remove every device connected to your phone line except the phone that was ringing continuously.
3. If the ringing stops, put the devices back one at a time and see which one causes the problem.
4. If the ringing does not stop, the fault is either in the telephone or your master socket.
5. If you have another phone that is known to be working, try it out to see if it has the continuous ringing.
6. If the problem no longer occurs, there could be a problem the telephone equipment, and you should contact the telephone's manufacturer for support.
7. If the test phone has the continuous ringing, call your telephone provider and tell them that there may be a short circuit in your phone line.
8. If the problem happens only with your cordless phone, and not a corded phone, then it could be interference from a device such as a wireless broadband router or microwave or the cordless handset batteries may not be charging properly.

Tried to connect SE6581B/17 but it does not ring.But able to make call through it.when another phone is connected it rings once thn no ring.

This sounds like "trip and ring" usually this trouble is from the service provider, but could be caused by a slight short in the phone, line cord, outlet, or building wiring. If this is a landline, it can be tested from the outside interface box. Open the customer side of the box with a screw driver, inside there is a modular connection with a short line cord connected. Remove the line cord from the modular connection, connect a standard single line telephone to the modular connection. This test jack connects the phone to the phone line and isolates it from the building wiring. Test incoming calls with the phone connected to the test jack, if the problem still occurs, the problem is from the service provider. If there is no problem at the test jack then the problem is in the building.

Cant make call out as it appears that there is a line open

2 more things to try:

Try plugging in the base station into a different phone jack somewhere in the house: if it works, the first jack is dead and will need to be replaced, otherwise try the folowing:

Try using your base station at a neighbors house, (somewhere where you know the phone line is working), if it works there then its an issue with your telephone line, however if the base station does not work there, then I would look into what is going on with the phone.

if you determine that it is your phone line, I would contact your telephone company and talk to them about sending a technician out to fix it.

Let me know how things turn out!

What do you recommend to stop phone echoing? I own an AT&T Dect 6.0 cordless. It echos no matter where you are in the house.

Try making a phone call on regular analog phone.
If you have an echo you should contact your carrier
If no echo contact the store that you bought the phone from and ask for replacement of deffective unit.

If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem
