Re: lost ac adapter
If you are trying to guess at an adapter, and plugging them in to see if they work, you run the risk of ruining your machine. With the blinking lights its not booting correctly, so I hope your not smelling smoke too. Nevertheless, you need a 9-12 dc output adapter (with I believe the negative on the inside). Your describing the input of 120V 60HZ, all of them say this since that is the power that is coming out of your wall socket. Look on the back of your machine at the connection and it will show you the polarity via a little diagram imprinted in the plastic(if the negative goes in the center or outside of the plug) This is the most important part, if it is backwards you will fry your machine, if you have not already.

Your assumption is correct. The phone is not sensing any external AC power. If you are sure that the AC cord/adapter is plug in to the mains, then it is either:
1. the walloutlet or where the ACplug/adapters is connected does not have any power; or
2. The adapter itself is defective.
Hope this b e of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
You need to take the phone system box with you. Also if you have voicemail, that box needs to move with you. Depending on how simple or complex your phone system is, there could be several other devices that need to move with you. There could be a fax switch, analog adapter, power supply for front desk cap(central answer position) button module, paging equipment, music on hold, and/or message on hold unit to name some of the more common auxilliary equipment. My advice is to have someone with knowlegde of phone systems to look at where the phone system equipment is before disconnecting and moving. If you have ip based phones, there may be a way to run them from a computer,but it would take some specialized software.
The handset has lost the link with the base. This link codes the handset to the base with a unique security code so others with the same phone cannot use your phone line.
If you changed the battery, try disconnecting the base telephone line and ac adapter for a while (1/2 hour or so if possible).
Remove the battery from the handset as well.
After 1/2 hour, install the battery in the handset, connect the telephone line and ac adapter to the base. Place the handset in the charging base and the link should be established. If not, the phone is defective.
I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.
Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.
Called GE. Here's what's happening (at least with my phone). I use
VONAGE as a carrier. VONAGE's package includes voicemail. I have my
VONAGE voicemail account set up to take any call that comes in if the
answering machine on my GE phone does not pick up -- for instance if
I'm on the phone and I do not "flash" over to the incoming call, that
caller will eventually be sent to my VONAGE voicemail where they can
leave a message. (Otherwise I would either take the call, or, if not
already in use, the GE phone/answering system would simpy take the
message.) This GE phone is commucating with my VONAGE account
and letting me know that I have a mesage in my VONAGE
account voicemail. All I have to do is either go online and delete the
messages (after listening to them of course) and refresh the page. Once
the messsages are deleted, the carrier lets my phone know the messages
are gone and the NEW VOICE MAIL prompt on the handset disappears. I
suppose I can do it by listening to the messages by calling in and deleting through the touch pad on the phone as well.
