All of the sudden the phone just stopped working. It says 'out of range'.
The phone was plugged in and connected to the base all night. One morning I went to make a call and the phone says 'out of range' when it is in my hands next to the base. There is no dial tone. I've check the phone line and electronical power and both are good. What could be the problem? I've had this phone less than year and it has just stopped.

check all wires are firmly in place, especially the scart lead, and just give them a little push to make sure, if that doesnt work, try unplugging your tv from the mains and wait 5 mins, plug it back in, wait another 5 mins, and turn on, if that doesnt work, contact the company's customer service line.
Unplug the battery in the handset, unplug the phone line from the base and unplug the electricity from the base. Leave everything unplugged for an hour or two instead of a couple to five minutes that way you can get more of an idea of whether your phone will work. After an hour or two plug in everything. If resetting the phone doesn't work then try the next step.
Check the surge protector:
Is the phone line plugged into a surge protector? The surge protector may have stopped working or blown a surge, a sudden burst of electricity, which may have caused the dial tone in your cordless phone to go. Unplug the phone line from the surge protector then plug it back in and see if you get a dial tone. It could be that the phone line plugged into the surge was loose or not plugged in securely.
Try a different phone plug, outlet.
Check the base:
Is the base dusty and have possible dirt in the prongs where the phone sits? Lift the base and blow off dust.
Check the handset for dirt.
Rub metal connections on handset and base:
Use a pen cap or coin and rub the metal connections on the bottom of the handset. Rub the prongs, metal connections on base.
Check that the base station has power and then place the phone on the cradle on the base station for a minimum of 20 seconds this will reregister the phone security code. If the phone does not start charging or the base seems dead then check that the power pack for the base station in plugged in and turned on.
I finally find a way to stop this problem from occuring : never leave your phone on the charger with the battery isnt empty !
I know this sucks because what best place to put your phone at night than its base. But try it and it will work (unless your battery is already damaged). In the morning when i go to work, I charge it for 8 hours, then when I come back, I take it off the charge until next morning.
