    Can't connect displays on both handsets when "phone" button is pressed even though the base is plugged into the phone line and both handsets are fully-charged and plugged in the electricity. I am beginning to suspect I purchased a defective phone. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and found a way to get the phones working? Thanks! -Alex-

Can not rec a dial tone, phone states no link to base move closer

If “No link to base. Move closer to base, try again.” is displayed
even when using the handset near the base unit, the handset may have lost communication with the base unit. You need to re-register the handset to the base unit.
• Make sure the base unit is not being used.
• Have both handsets and base unit nearby during registration.
• Follow steps 1–3 listed below. You have about 1 minute to complete them.
• Confirm the extension number of the handset which has lost the communication by placing the handset on the base unit or charger.
If you re-register the handset using the other handset’s extension number, the other handset will not function.
• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

1 Base unit: Press and hold [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] until a beep sounds.
• The CHARGE indicator flashes.

2 Base unit: Press the extension number [1] (handset symbol 1 ) or [2] (handset symbol 2) of the
handset which has lost the communication.

3 Handset: Press and hold [FLASH/CALL WAIT] until “Handset Registering” is displayed.
• When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset and the display shows the number.
• Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete while the handset establishes communication with the base unit.

• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

I have never worked with that unit beofre, but I can take a shot. Visit your local car audio dealer, and pick up a LVT (low volatage trip)..Open up the base station, and disconnect the signal wires to the buzzer/speaker. Use those wires to feed the low voltage turn on in the LVT. THe LVT acts just like a relay, but requires much less voltage to trigger. So in theory if you use the LVT it shopuld power up your external speaker properly when the station is triggered, and is a fairly simple install.

My E2562 handset 1 would not detect base and displayed D51A PD whenever I tried to manually register it. This fixed it:
1. Remove battery from handset.
2. Unplug base and unplug phone connection(s). Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in base.
4. Plug in phone connection(s) to base.
5. Put battery back in handset. Handset 1 should then auto register with base.

Bluetooth disconnects after 5 minutes

I know this sounds silly, but try having your cell phone more than a couple feet away from the base of the DECT phone. Bluetooth can have issues when they are really close together. I have mine setting about 6ft away without problems.

Motorola 580 handset not working

My handset does not connect to the base station. It flashes momentarily, but does not find the base. The base station has a humming noise when the phone line is disconnected and the talk button is depressed. Hum is also present when the phone line is reconnected. The problem was resolved by replacing the 9VDC power supply. The hum disappeared and the handset immediately connected to the base.
