Question about GE 25931 Trio Cordless Phone

1 Answer

All handsets cannot be used at the same time

My GE Cordless phone, model 25931 will not pick up either of the extensions if another of them is already in use. If I pick up one of the other handsets and punch the "TALK" button, the screen doesn't light up. Instead, after a few seconds, the message "Unavailable" flashes on the unbacklit screen and the phone goes back to "Ready" status. Meanwhile, the original handset will remain on line and in use. This applies to any of the three handsets.
Also, how do I get off speakerphone while continuing to talk (without hanging up)?

Re: All handsets cannot be used at the same time

Some of the cordless phones do not allow more than one handset to be used at the same time. Is there a transfer button on the handsets? Can you call from one handset to the other? If not the phones probably have to be used one at a time.
To get off speaker phone just push the speaker phone button again.

Display screen is losing pixels, not even legible anymore?

I'm sorry but there is no economical fix for this type of problem. The LCD screen is simply failing.

If the phone is still under warranty, you can certainly return it to your place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

Otherwise you simply have to live with it as it is, or go out and buy a whole new phone handset.

Good luck.

I have a 2 handset GE cordless 25932EE2. Both handsets work great individually, BUT when we answer an incoming call with one phone, we can't use both handsets at the same time (for the same call). In...

The problem may be due to both your handsets operating on the same channel. To fix, try pressing and releasing the "chan/delete" button on one of the headsets. This will move it to the next available channel.

Since the local store don;t carry this unit anymore since this almost a old model already , well you can try to purchased it online.

You can check it from this online site that still has some unit for this model , just click HERE and check if that is what you need.

Please register on the screen

When you see this 'register' message, it means that that particular DECT handset must be registred to the selected 'Base' station: please consult your User manual/guide for the steps by steps instruction on how to register a new handset to your base station for the specific compatible model(s).

Hope it helps.

GE 25952 5.8 GHz

I just called GE/Thomson tech support (1-800-720-2094). GE cordless phones do not allow users to pick up an additional extension so that two people in the house can speak with a caller. He explained that it was for privacy.
I will be taking back my system today. :(
