This might sound silly, but does anything else work in that same power outlet? I trust the battery has been put into the handset. Another power outlet might work as well. (Especially if you're trying to plug it into a power strip. You'll want to try plugging directly into the wall.)

Base handset has interference.

If you still have a regular phone about, plug it inhere the base handset is connected and see if the symptoms remain. If they do, the problem is likely with your house wiring or the phone company. If no interference on the regular set, base handset may be defective. Try it at someone else's house.

Radio Shack (hurry :) has in-line filters that may clear up line noise.

All he best

Out of range At times when I am on the phone, it cuts out and shows "out of range" in the window

Joan, there are two things that can cause this,one, the batteries are not holding charge anymore or your base is loosing signal based on its location relative to handset.
Replace batteries and then charge them for 5 hrs before initial use. You can purchase replacement batteries from your local radio shack or walmart. Please bring your handset with your for the store to find exact replacement.

We checked battery at radio shack...fully charged...checked the phone line with another phone...push talk on dial tone.

You need to register the handset to the base. One way that works for most phones is to page the handset from the base. If that does not work then you need to find the manual

It says "base no power"

Battery is dead, you need to replace it. Radio shack has them. Remember to charge first time for 24 hours on new battery.

Phone is not charging

Try buying a new battery (you can find these at any radio shack/best buy) if that does not solve your problem you will need to buy a new base station.

I have 3 of these handsets and none of them will hold a charge, two of them quit at the same time after a power outage. We can still use the base as a peaker phone and the answering machine still works...

the transformer (little box that plugs into wall) probably got hit with a power surge and are not giving the charger base enough power to charge the batteries or the batteries are old enough that they cant hold a charge. I am betting on the transformers though. you can test out one by going to a electronics parts store (like radio shack) and getting a replacement transformer take one of you old ones with you (it should be under $10) and if it charges your phone you know what the problem is if not try a battery you can buy them online for about $9.
hope that helps

Hand set out of range disply is on. How do I reset.

here are some tips from my manual for out of range problems
hope they help
• Only one handset can be used to make or answer a call anytime.
If another handset attempt to do so, the screen will display OTHER
HANDSET ON and then OR OUT OF RANGE. You might press PHONE
or SPEAKER again until no other handset is using the line. Use the call
transfer feature to transfer a call to another system handset
or use the speakerphone feature so multiple members of your
house can be on an active call at the same time.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the base. You might have moved
out of range.
• Ensure that the base is powered up.
• Place the cordless handset in base cradle for 1 minute to allow the
cordless handset and base to resynchronize channels.
• If the cordless handset is in its base and the charging light does not
come on, refer to the charge light is off in troubleshooting guide.
• Reset the base. Unplug the unit’s electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds
then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset
and base to reset.
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless
phone. Try installing your phone as far away from these types of elec
tronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, page
towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal
computers, kitchen appliances and cordless phones.

Re: "compatible extension hand set"

Have you tried Uniden DXI-986-2 900 MHz Cordless Phone with Dual Handsets and Extra Charging Cradle. You would have to disable the base of the main unit of the Uniden and simply use it as a cradle/charger. Additionally, it may be to your advantage to bring along your Radio Shack Hand set when trying/buying the Uniden to see it they will pair up.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
