Question about Vtech i5808 Cordless Expansion Handset
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
