Hello, I had the same issue on a couple of Polycom soundstations (we have a few) and then it happened on a third one and I thought no way I am buying another one. I opened a ticket with Polycom and pretty aggressively told them I wasn't taking their useless one year warranty as a reason why they wouldn't fix my wireless soundstations. I said there is a known fault with these and I'll take it to their MD if I had to as we buy a lot of polycom kit so keep me happy bla bla... Within a week I had 2 new soundstations FOC. Nice. Customer services were very efficient so I can't fault them once I had spoken (logged call on their site) to them about it. Good luck in getting yours replaced!

Basically if your software version is NOT CVM 1.61 and you are having this problem, then you will need to contact Polycom to arrange a replacement. This problem is not yet fixable with a software patch except for units with CVM 1.61.

I have the same problem. The phone worked yesterday and today it said no signal and then when trying to register, it says failed. It is not communicating with the base at all.
