Re: GE phone

I had the same problem and I deregistered my handset from the base by removing the battery pack and kept it out overnight. The next day I replaced the battery and set the phone in the base for 20 seconds and it registered with the base. No more problems with random paging. I also cleaned the area around the page button, (I don't know if this had anything to do with it) and I have not had any more paging problems. good luck.

Re: GE phone

MY PHONE HAS FINALLY STOPPED REPEATEDLY PAGING! And here's what I did. I figured it was just dust, so when they went off again, I pushed the "Page" button that is located on the base. The phones stopped paging. Then I picked up the base (without the phone) and struck it smartly on the table. Not so hard as to break it, but hard enough to loosen what ever was inside. (I was hoping I didn't loosen critical wires!) I did that to the front, bakc, and both sides of the base unit. It has been three days and the phones have gone off since. Wheeww! It is such a relief the have the phone plugged back in.

I hope this helps someone else.

I have a GE model 25836CE-B cordless phone. My problem is this: when the phone is off the charger base, after a few minutes it will keep on beeping even if no one pressed the paging button at the charger...

Actually, you can't overcharge the battery. The base is designed to hold the handset indefinitely. Once the battery is charged it doesn't do any damage. You probably just don't have the battery charged enough to use the phone. Leave the handset on the base overnight, let the thing charge, and it should work properly.

I have a GE cordless phone and answering machine, model 27995GE1-A, and finally found where to get a new battery for it. When it is fully charged, is it better to leave on the charger or off, when not in...

Newer phones don't have the battery problems of old. Just to be safe I would leave the phone off the charger after the first call. Put it on the charger when you go to bed.

No dial tone both units

You have almost left no stone unturned. It is either a bad base station or a bad cord between the base and the jack. Try a new cord.

Handset needs registration

I had the same problem and have seemed to figure it out. Take the handset near the base. Press the Prog/Mute button at the bottom of the phone. It will display a message to press the Pager on the base. The phone will then ask you for a Handset Name. Press the Prog/Mute button again and it will name the handset Handset 1.. it is working

Just bought an additional handset for GE 27951 expandable 6.0 DECT Cordless. I press and hold the Page button for 5 seconds but the new handset will not register. Error keeps occurring "no base."

This exact thing happened to me. Same model number. No matter what I did, the new handsets would not register.

The solution? Reset the entire system:
1. On the BASE - Unplug from wall both power and phone line. Unplug battery from base handset.
2. ON the Extension phone - unplug from wall and unplug battery from handset.
3. Wait AT LEAST 5 minutes.
4. Plug back in BASE power.
5. Plug back in BASE phone line.
6. Plug back in EXTENSION handset battery. Don't plug in BASE handset yet.
7. Follow steps to program EXTENSION. When successful:
8. Plug back in BASE handset battery.
