Question about Panasonic KX-TG5632 Phone

Phone dropped in water- 2 problems

I have the kx-tg5633 phones. I dropped in water few days ago. I removed battery and let dry. Problem 1: when I replaced battery the phone turned on and I was able to make calls and I could hear the other person. Unfortunately, the other person cannot hear me at all. Problem 2: Since I thought the phone was working ok, I returned it to the cradle (2 days after it got wet). The phone doesn't appear to be charging and the bottom of the handset and battery are hot to the touch. It still turns on, has all contact info, dials, and places the call. Is there any hope?

Re: phone dropped in water- 2 problems

It sounds like like the phone's microphone isn't working. That's why the other party can't hear you. Your ear piece is working because you say you can hear the other party.

What makes you believe that the battery isn't charging? Batteries will get warm when they are charged. This is normal. However, you say "hot". How hot is "hot"? Can you keep your hand and fingers on it without discomfort?

I don't believe you can plug the battery in backwards. That would cause the battery to get hot if the + and - were swapped. The battery connector is polarized to prevent that from happening.

There still may be water in the micophone and the phone that you can't see. I would find a way to make sure its really dried out.

The best way would be to take the handset apart but that isn't always easy to do for most people. However it would give you a chance to inspect the microphone.

You might try placing it in front of a hot air register that is putting out warm air from your furnace. Remove the battery & battery cover so that the warm air can get into the inside.

The microphone have have been damaged from the exposure to water.

You may have done permanent damage by putting the battery back in too soon. Remove the battery and put the phone in a warm dry place and leave it for week to dry out internally. Maybe it will work after that but you're most likely looking at having to replace it.

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Phone issues.

1st) you must identify the ranking order of your handsets. Put all your handsets in the main base cradle and it will tell you which phone is your handset ie: (1) (2) (3) (4). (if you are reseting a handset, chose a number that is missing to reset your phone to) Now, with NO handsets in the main base cradle. Hold your phone and press "menu", then key in the numbers 00. Now, don't do anything with your handset. Go to the main base cradle. On the bottom, where it says "locator" press the "select" button until you get the desired phone rank needed. H1,H2,H3 etc... Then, press and hold the "call" button, under "intercom". (The charging light should start flashing) Now, go to your handset and press the "OK" button on the top upper right corner. At this point, your phone should be working!

If you are still having problems, call Panasonic Customer Service at 1-800-211-7262 for tech support. PS: your handset may show model KX-560B, but your main cradle base will show the actual phone model listed as KX-TG5633
