Question about Vtech IP8100-2 Twin Cordless Phone

Open Question

Vtech IP8100 Say Searching.....

One by one both of my Vtech IP 8100 phones have gone into permanent "Searching..... mode." Removed batteries and unplugged the base station but no joy. Unregistered Base ID numbers from handsets, despite saving the Base ID number in each handset now all they say is Enter Base ID. Keep entering Base ID but no change. I reset the base station but to no avail. Bought these phones new in Feb 2009.

SOURCE: VTech 5.8 mhz won't work

I found a solution that fixed this problem (at least for me). On the vtech site they said to unplug the base unit for at least 5 minutes. Previously, I had only unplugged the base unit for a few seconds. This time, I left it unplugged for about 10 minutes or so and when I plugged it back in, everything was working fine. Apparently there is some sort of capacitor that must discharge long enough to completely remove power from the circuitry.

Good luck and I hope this works for you!

SOURCE: we are having similar problem with vtech 5808

Install new batteries! Be sure to let them charge fully (overnite) before first use.

I have 5 of the i5808 expansion phones around my house - most about the same age - and they all started acting up ithin a few months of each other. I "experimented" with a new battery for one, and it solved the issue for that one phone...so I replaced the batteries in each of the others that were experiencing the problems. This was about 2 to 3 months ago, and all phones have been problem-free since the new battery installs!

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i want to add an additional handset to my vtech phone...the new handset is "searching for base" and requests a 15-digit number which is suppose to be on the base--there is no 15-digit number to input.

The 15 digit number shoudl be on a sticker on the bottom of the base unit.

My phone keeps saying unable to connect


is your phone about a year old? It may be the battery. The vtech phones have weak batteries that clunk out after about a year and you'll get dropped calls, looking for base etc... The phone still appears to be working and the battery indicator tells you it's charged, but the battery is too weak to keep the wireless connection going.

Had the same problem and replaced the battery. budgetbatteries.com had the cheapest ones. But it's a knockoff, so I don't know how long it will last. So far it's been 3 months and the problems are gone. I would try that first and see how it goes. I paid about $15 including shipping. If you buy it from vtech it's at least double...

I too measured 5 volts and they couldn't explain how it could still be the "wallwart". I tried a 6 volt wallwart and it seems to work fine.

I just had the same problem. Could be dirty terminals. I took the battery out, cleaned the terminals on the battery and phone with a pencil eraser, put the battery back in and it's working fine. (Says fully charged, where just a few minutes ago it said low battery).
