Question about Panasonic (KX-TG1032S) Phone

3 Answers

Voices breaks up when phone is over 25 feet from base unit.

Panasonic KX-TG1032S - Base phone and 2 extensions in home. Phone at base unit in bedroom works fine. One extension is in room directly below the base unit, putting it about 12 feet from the base. When using this one, the reception is good for the person using the phone. However, the person on the other end of the line cannot hear you because your voice keeps breaking up. The only solution the instructions offer is to tell you to move closer to the base unit, which is not possible in this situation. I solved this problem by plugging my wired phone back in. The other is in the kitchen on the same floor as the base unit in the bedroom, but at the other end of the house, about 50 feet away. The same problem occurs when using this phone, until you walk to about 25 feet from the base unit and then the problem clears up. What is wrong here?

    use foil. put it on your antenna.
    haha. this might work.

    This is why I paid for premium service? Please have a real expert look at this. BTW, the phones now only work within 5 feet of my base unit.

    Darklord1 and Doodad - Thanks very much for your help. The phone was in an upstairs bedroom, which seem to have little that would interfere with it. I tried taking the batteries out of the atomic clock in the room, but that didn't do it. So I moved the base unit to the room directly below the bedroom, which contains my wireless network, and it worked there. So I still don't know where the interference was coming from, but the important issue is solved, it works. Thanks again. Longhornfan

Sounds like you have some interference within your home. Causes of this are wireless interenet, microwaves, radios, stereos, baby monitors etc. Pretty much anything that uses a wireless connection or antenna. These sorces of interference are intermittent depending on if they are being used, where they are located, how much power they use and their type of signal/channel. Try moving the base(s) around your home to get a better, clearer reception If your phone is equipped with a channel/frequency selector try changing or adjusting it and see if that helps.

Hey sorry about that expert he/she is possibly missing a few brain cells or a brain for that matter.. But the idea of foil to boost recepton inst a bad one at all,,

Ok firstly there must be a ranger specified in the distance the wireless phones dhould work from, If its in the specified range but dont work there are a few possible causes..

1.) Interference,, does it do this all the time , or just when certin things are in use, like your blender, microwave, refrigators.. Basicall all eletronic devices emmit electromagnet waves which wil cause interference.. If you got it close to the fridge or where so ever close by or on one i suggest you try it somewhere else..

2.)Defective Product.. IF it isnt interference, and you got warrenty the first thing i recommend is taking this item back.. If you havent any warrenty you still have a few options..
You can take it in to a service tech to let him try to figure out whats wrong with it.. (VERY UNLIKELY HE CAN FIX THIS SINCE THESE ITEMS ARE CONSIDERED DISPOISABE AND THEREFORE ARE MADE WITH MICRO CIRCUITS).. Or you can ask him if he can add transistors to help boot the signal, most often this inst possible on certin items..

3.) Sometimes A low or defective battery also can cause this problem, you might want to have a look at this as well..

BUT as i will strongly recommend to you, Try looking for a source of interference and if there isnt any then have a look at the batterys.. If not it will deffenately be most fesible to purchase a new one..

If there are any changes or anything else you would like to ask please by all means post it here and i shall reply as soon as possible..

My panasonic home phone only rings once, it used to ring normally and would also say what number is calling. please help.

We recommend you unplug the Panasonic base unit and make a test call from another number. If the line disconnects after 1 ring then you have either a telephone line problem or another device connected to the telephone line is the problem.

I have KX-T7730X corded, how can I add extension to our PBX.

It requires a "home run" back to a control unit and an open port. They're wired with 2 pairs, the same as the other phones in your system.

As an alternative, you can plug the base cord directly into the control box.

I have a panasonic cordless phone, model kx-tga820. for some reason both handsets now say that it is busy when i push the talk button. Our other phones are ok. Why?


If you get busy tone in your Panasonic KX-TGA820 cordless phone, it may be due to any one of the following reasons:

1)The called handset is in use.

2)The handset you are calling is too far from the base unit.
Check whether the base unit is not so far from the handset

3)There is no handset registered to the base unit matching the extension number you entered.
Try to re-register the handset to the base unit again, To know details regarding registering and re-registering, please refer page 38 of the manual, which you can download from the link given below

4)Other units are in use and the system is busy. Try again later.
Try to check whether the other units are not using your base unit

You can download manual for your phone from the following link for reference

Adding handset to Panasonic KX-TGA542M phone. ? how to ?

I ordered a new kx-tg560m handset for my kx-tg5632 base unit, but the enclosed instructions for registering it with the base unit were wrong. Fortunately, I found the old quick setup guide in my files.

If you do not have the same base unit and handset, go to the URL:

1. On the handset, press [MENU], then press [0][0]. The handset displays "Refer to manual to prepare base. Then press OK->"
2. On the base unit, press [SELECT] until the desired extension number [H1, H2, H3, or H4] is displayed on the base unit, then press and hold [CALL] until the CHARGE indicator flashes.
3. On the handset, press the [OK] softkey.

When the handset is off and sitting in the charger, the handset's extension is displayed in the upper right corner.
