Question about Vtech VT-2431 Cordless Phone
After a few years the keypads stop working. Usually starts at the top of the keypad where the on and off button are. Nothing more frustrating than not being able to answer the phone. You can use the handsfree button to answer as a speakerphone but then you can't hang up. Tried taking the phone apart because it is out of warranty. two screws under battery. But it still wouldn't come apart. Thought I might be able to clean something or straighten the rubber buttons out so that the buttons would start working again but it won't even come apart. If anyone knows how to take it apart that would be a start.

After you remove the battery and the two obvious underlying screws, you will need to pop the two halves apart. This takes some force and you may break some internal plastic clips, but you have no choice. There are approximately six internal plastic clips, so don't worry about breaking one or two. The screws hold it together securely anyhow. Then there are 5 more little screws to get the back PCB off. Then use nail polish cleaner and q-tips and clean the contacts on both the rubber pad and the PCB.
The keypad will work like new again - magic.
