Hi could some one give me a steer in how to overcome a problem with our home phone. The handsets have a flashing anttenna though do not pick up any dial.
When you ring the number it appears to continue to ring though you do not hear it live in house.
Please advise of how I may overcome the issue.

Re: Doro Home cordless phone not working
It sounds like you may not have any dial tone in the house. some phones have a light come on when the phone isn't recieving dial tone.[in your case the anntena] you can try plugging a corded phone into different jacks in the house.there maybe a box [called a nid] on the outside or in the basement/garage where you can plug a phone directly into it bypassing all the jacks in the house [there could be a problem in the house] if still no dial tone ,call your phone company

I get the same problem with my Uniden. Seller said batteries but it happened on multiple handsets. I purchased another of the same model so my extra handsets would work and I get the same problem. I am buying ANOTHER phone - different brand - and if it still happens I know it is Time Warner. (most problems are with them anyway - they blew my 60" TV and would take no responsibility. Too bad they have a monopoly.)
This is because the extra handset might have not been registered with the base unit.The headset should be register to use the headset with that base unit.
To register the handset to base unit please follow the instruction:-
On registration the handset is allocated a handset number for use on the new base unit, the handset numbers are 1-5.
1. Press and hold on the base unit until starts flashing. Registration mode will remain active for approximately 3 minutes. 2.Press and hold both together until you hear a long beep.
3.Select the base unit you wish to register by pressing the corresponding number button 1-4. 4. When PIN is displayed, enter the units PIN number (0000 for this model). 5. If the registration is successful the handset will return to standby mode in a few seconds. Thanx
Push the top left button (looks like an audio tape). Then push 9 It will display a 180second count down in which to record your voice message. When finished, push the top right button (looks like and arrow into a diamond).
To turn off/on the answering machine:
I lost my user manual for my Doro 615R+1 home phone, so after much deliberation and playing with many buttom combinations, worked out how to turn off the answering machine.
- Open the answering machine function by pushing the top left button (looks like an audio tape).
- Push '0' and then use the up and down arrows to select On or Off.
- To enter your selection push the top right button (looks like and arrow into a diamond).
The hand sets probably need to go through the 'registration' process with the base station. Look up the steps on how to do this in your manual.
One thing that the manual sometimes does not highlight clearly is that first you need to press and hold down a button on the main base station for a while until it beeps. Then you can go through the menu on the hand set to complete the registration process.
I have replace my doro batteries with Duracell rechargeables, just make sure you fully charge them before you put them in the handset. If you find after a time that the charge goes again, charge them again (in the charger you buy when you buy the batteries)! Hope this helps. PS, do you know how to turn the answering machine on?
