Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Analog Cordless Phone
I got a new 5.8GHz and if you try to make a call it says can't connect in the scren. I have checked the line and it works perfect with other phones can some one help me
Mine turned out to be not getting power from the surge protector. Plugged it into the wall and it worked again. If the power light is off to the base station it is not getting power and won't connect. I know this is a duh, but I missed it. Probably not what is wrong with yours.

Only 1 or 3 cordless phones work now. We have no idea why the 2 aren't connecting, we've tried putting them on different craddles, tried swtiching the call to another phone and it doesn't work. Grr...I would suggest never buying another VTech again we have had nothing but problems with them.

Have problem with both, though that have line problem but nhaaaaaaa! replacing the two set of batteries because they are over one year old, hopefully will work if not will discard them. good luck to every one else
(problem was "connecting on both phones, switched bats. still same problem")

I had same issue. wherein one handset would not connect but the others worked fine. The clue the the problem was if I switched batteries between handsets the problem moved with the offending battery. ergo - replace the bad battery pack. I found replacement batteries here:http://www.ebay.com/itm/3X-NEW-Cordless-Home-Phone-Battery-for-Vtech-80-5071-00-00-ia5854-ia5864-ia5874-/120896799872?pt=US_Telephone_Batteries&hash=item1c2602c480

I was having the same problem just now. I disconnected the wireless router power tried the phone, but it still didn't work. I plugged in the wireless router and tried a minute later and now it's working!
It says only one vtech phone can be used at a time, I hope the neighbors 5.8GHZ phone isn't interferring with mine!
I agree these phones are junk and Uniden is way better.

The battery of the phone may need to be replaced. The lifetime of a cordless phone battery in 1 year...depending upon the usage.
