GE handset 28101 will not sync with base-GE 28129

Unplug power cord from the base for ten or fifteen minutes, this is the only user level operation that you can do to try fixing the problem.

If after resetting the base still do not find the handset, then either the base or the handset is faulty.

If the base works fine with a different handset, then it is the handset.

be sure that you have battery charged 100% and checked the connectors between the celphone and the battery put something like a piece of paper under the battery before inserting it to add pressure to connectors.

A brand new Samsung GT-S5233S is unable to charge low batteries. Salesman said the battery is too low and it can be charged only through universal battery charger. Any expert advice on this issue.

Hi. Thanks for using fixya.
The salesman is correct. Cell phone batteries need a "boost" sometimes when they are really dead. You can purchase a universal charger at a local store or order it real cheap on ebay. The battery will have to be charged outside of the phone.
Another way to get your battery going again is to put it in the freezer.
1)Place the battery in a seal-able plastic bag and place it in the freezer. This plastic bag protects the battery from condensation.
2)Allow the battery to freeze for 24 hours. Remove the battery from the freezer and allow it to thaw for 4 to 8 hours
3)Return the battery to the phone and turn the phone on. Make sure the battery is no longer cold before returning it to the phone.

This will revive your battery also. But for a new phone, I recommend getting a universal charger. U wont have to use it often. Its just to "jump-start" the battery.
I hope your battery works soon.

    Nokia 6300 Switching off

    Purchasing a new phone is easy and everyone is always in a hurry to use new phone but never go through the manual properly. You did the same you didn't put the battery on charge for 24 hours. Now to check your phone take another charged battery for nokia put it inside your phone and start it. It will deffinetly work. In order to revive your dead battery keep your battery on charge while the phone is switched off for minimum 24 hours. If it gets revived its ok or else purchase a new one.

    GE Cordless 28101 - No Battery Code

    I called GE on this and they asked me if I was using Duracells. I was. Apparently, there is some problem about the shape of the battery and it doesn't make a proper connection. Try another brand that has a more pointy positive pole and it should work. I switched to some rechargable Sanyo batteries.

    My RAZR is dead and will not charge, its not the charger and I don't have a spare battery to try.Is there a common fault here? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hello Tone316,

    Sorry to hear of your cell phone drama. The problem that exists with your phone is most likely not the battery.

    A common problem is the charging port on the phone (the place on your phone where you plug the charger). Through normal usage it occassionally wiggles loose from the main board.

    If the phone is under warranty 1 year or less you can contact your cell phone provider and place a warranty exchange. They will send you a refurbished handset (no battery, no sim if applicable) with a return mailer. You will have 5-7 days to send in your old phone to avoid being charged for the replacement. There is no charge for the replacement phone.

    If your phone is not sim card based then you may want to go to your local retail store so that you can get assistance with backing up your data as you will not receive your old phone back once you send it in for service.

    The only way to be sure if the problem is actually with the phone is to see if you can test out another wall charger. You can do this at your local retail store without having to purchase it or use a friend or family members charger if you know of any who has a Razr. If the phone charges then the problem exists with the charger, if it doesn't the problem exists with the phone.

    On the outside chance the problem exists with the charger you have to place the warranty claim with Motorola and not with the cell phone provider as accessory and out of warranty replacements are handled directly by the manufacturer.

    Tone316- I hope everything works out for you without much trouble.
