Question about Vtech ia5864 Cordless Phone
I have had this phone a few months now and one day it called a number out but wouldn't hang up all I get is the operator saying if you want to make a call hang up and try again. I can't get it to hang up unless I unplug the phone line. When I connect the phone line again it calles out and does the same thing.
Can I fix this or should I just get another phone system?
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.

Reset the phone by unplugging BOTH the adaptor and the phone line (the phone gets some power from the phone line). after you have done that put each hand set into the main base till the lite flickers (not the charging stand)... phone should be good to go after that

I'm not familar with the Vtech but I would suspect that all 4 units work off of the answering machine base. It sounds like it is seeing a dial tone.
Take a working phones like the wall phone, if it is easily removed, and use a known good connecting cable between the good wall phone and the jack that the Vtech is plugged into.
If that works, take the connecting cable loose and replace it with the Vtech connecting cable. If that works check the jack on the Vtech for crossed wire. If non found, connect it to the jack the wall phone was plugged into. If this doesn't provide satisfaction, let me know exactly what you did and what happened and we will go from there.

first step is to unplug all power and phone connections from the wall for all Vtech phones and bases.
Second,plug each set and base in the wall for power one at a time.
Go back to the basics and pair the handset with the base of the unit.
Do this for all sets one at a time.

SOURCE: Not Registered Problem
This worked for the 7100, hopefully it works for other models:
When the handset says "not registered", it should still have a "menu" option. Select that, then the only choice is "register", select Ok. Now it says "searching for base", press and *hold down* the "locate handset" button on the base until the handset beeps and wakes up. Docs say this could take up to 30 seconds (it was about 17 for mine).
