I don't have that particular phone, but my phone has a small LED in the front that turns to red when it's in the charger with a fully drained battery, yellow when it's above 20% charge, and green when it's fully charged.
If the phone is fully charged, but it won't turn on when you press the power button, there's probably a problem with either your charger or the battery itself. I suggest replacing the battery, or when it's built into the phone itself visit the store where you bought it. They might know what to do.
If battery is charged and phone is working simply do this: Press the power button for a few seconds, which is the same as the "hang up" button with red ink on it). Voila! It took me serveral days and a number of dealers telling me I had to pend $300 for a new phone before I uncovered this fix.
When you pick up your GE cordless phone and press a button, the phone
should beep as a confirmation that a button has been pressed. If the
telephone handset does not beep, or if it does not respond to any
buttons, the battery may be in need of a recharge. Verify that the
cordless phone base unit is plugged in to an electrical source, then
place the handset into the charging cradle. If no lights illuminate on
the phone, or if charging fails to correct the issue, clean the metal
charging contacts on the cordless handset and place the phone back on
the charger. If it still fails to respond or to charge, the unit may
need to be serviced or replaced.
Does the Battery Hold a Charge?
If the cordless phone charges up and appears to be ready for use but
dies after only short periods of use, the internal rechargeable
batteries may need to be replaced. Replacement batteries are widely
available at electronics
and discount retail stores. Note your phone's exact model number, as
this number will be necessary when purchasing a replacement battery.
Listen for a Dial Tone
If the GE cordless phone powers on, and beeps when you press keys, but
no dial tone is heard, one of three problems is the likely culprit. The
phone's batteries may have an insufficient charge to fully power the
phone, a condition that can be corrected by simply placing the phone
back in the charger. If the batteries are charged, but no dial tone is
heard, it is also possible that another telephone in your home or
office is "off hook" or in use; verify that all telephones, fax
machines and modems are securely on the hook. If there is still no dial
tone, your telephone service may have been disconnected or require
service by your local telephone company.
Listen for Static
On some GE cordless phone models, particularly older models, static may
be heard if the radio signal between the handset and base unit
experiences interference. Common sources of interference include
unshielded electronics, appliances, and radio transmitters, as well as
high-tension power lines. If your phone offers an option to change
channels, try several different channels to see if the static is
eliminated. If static continues to exist, or if static can be heard on
wired phones sharing the same line, your telephone line may require service.
Verify Your Handset is Registered
Some models of GE cordless phones may display a message on the display
screen that the handset needs to be registered. If this message
appears, move the handset close to the base unit and press the
"Prog/Mute" button near the bottom of the handset. Next, press the
"Pager" button on the base unit (your handset may instruct you to
perform this step). Finally, press the "Prog/Mute" button on the
handset one more time to complete the registration process. Your GE
cordless phone should now work correctly.The GE Cordless Phone brand is designed to deliver the conveniences of
cordless home service with quality sound and features. There are many
models of the GE Cordless Phone. The most current models, including the
DECT 6.0, have standard features such as call waiting, caller ID,
visual ring indicator, phone number memory and digital answering systems .
you use your GE Cordless Phone, ensure that you have all the parts.
Your cordless phone package should include the phone base, a handset
battery pack, a battery compartment cover, the cordless handset, a wall
mount bracket, and a telephone line cord and AC power adaptor. Once you
have confirmed that you have all of your parts, insert the handset
battery pack into the handset and replace the battery compartment
cover. Insert your telephone line cord and the AC power adapter into
the phone base. The phone base identifies the telephone line as TEL
LINE and the adapter as AC. Plug the phone base into the electrical
socket. Place the cordless handset into the base. Allow the phone to
charge for at least 16 hours before its first use. Failure to fully
charge the battery before its first use will result in poor battery
Once you have fully charged your phone, you can proceed with setting up
your phone's features. If your cordless phone includes an answering
system, complete this setup process first. Turn on the answering system
by pressing the on/off button. The message indicator light will
display. The cordless phones
are defaulted to English as the selected language. To change your
language preference, press the "Skip" button for two seconds. The
language will change to Spanish. Next, you will set up your voice time
and day stamp. While the answering system is on, press the "Answer"
button on your handset for two seconds. The phone will enter the
answerer mode. Press the "8" key. This will take you to the time/day
setup menu. Use the number keys to set the hour and minutes. Use the
volume up and down arrows to set the AM/PM. Press "#" to save. The
cordless handset will also require that you give it a name. Press the
"Mute" button for two seconds until the handset reads "ENTER NAME."
Enter the name of the handset by using the touchtone keypad. Press the
"Mute" button to save. Enter the default area code by pressing "Mute"
until the phone displays "AREA CODE." Enter your three-digit area code
and press the "Mute" button to save.
GE Cordless Phones are designed to be simple and convenient to use. To

reception while on a call, press the CHANNEL button until your line

If the Red Led stays turned on it is as simple as this.....the solder connecting your power on button to the system board in your phone has worn off..... you must pop the power button at the top of your phone off and you will be able to see where the soldering paste has simply worn off. At my job I have a soldering machine so it was not problem for me. I simply took pasted it back to the board with tin.....now this may require some work. just pop off the top section of you phone with a flathead screw driver and pop out the power button. look closely and you should be able to see where the botton has lifted from the little greenish system board..... Find someone to solder it, put it back together and it works like new.........SEE YA
The phone software is corrupted you need to reinstall the phone software if your phone is within warranty please give to service center and or get it done on the local phone service center .......................
unfortunately, you'll have to do a master reset on your phone. You'll loose all of your data. TO do this.. power off the phone. Then press the center select button (silver button on navigation pad) then power on the phone while keeping the sliver button pressed. You should get a Master reset prompt.. click Yes.
your firmware is probably messed up a bit - you will need to redo a complete flash - but not with usb cable - you will need proper equipment like JAF - but you don't need to spend $300 for a tool - we can fix it for you for under $30
