    i have the same problem is there any solution yet??

    I also have the same problem. I have tried everything as per the manual, Master reset, Un-register and then Re-register but both handsets seem to be locked in the Searching mode.

    The other thing i have noticed (not sure how relevant) is that the phone socket on the base station only has 2 brass pins where my other BT cordless phone has 4. The lead that connects to this plug also has pins (wires red and green). I tried the phone lead i got with the Philips phones with my BT phone and it does not work; so i tried by BT lead with the Philips phone and unfortunately it did not also work.

    Does anybody out there know the solution to this frustrating problem?

    Same issue. Sometimes the problem doesn't start until there is an incoming message.

    my answering machine Philips CD245 has stopped working - if messages are left I cannot hear them, and although the phone knows I have a new personalised message, it insists on always playing the old one - moreover ignores any changes to settings such as changing answer mode etc

Sounds like the main phone doesnt have a connection or is unplugged. Do you get a dial tone when you pick it up?

Philips cd245 duo wont register and wont reset

Hi, I sort of solved this issue. What you cannot confuse here is that when you are doing "Registering" on your existing handset, the base has to be in the registration mode too. To get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode". You can then go through the procedure you describe and the handset will beep with Registration number on the screen. This is however a fix only if the Base is still functioning. In my case, sadly, the base was more likely dead (if I press any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there is no response). Hence I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible BINATONE 1800 Single at Comet (14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a new base that came with 1 handset, then 3 of my CD245 handset are all registered with it. So far, the sound quality is good and I also managed to have kept all the telephone numbers registered with the handset. The BINATONE base came with 12 months manufacturer's guarantee so I am sorted with the base problem for at least a year, which is nice. I hope this is helpful. Best, Ken

I have just bought a PhilipsCD240 with answer machine CD245

The message left has to be longer than 3 seconds...Not sure what brilliant mind came up with this since "Hey, it's me, call me back as soon as you can!" is less than three seconds and could be urgent, but that's their rules.

If you've tested it with longer messages, please let me know!

Philips phones

Moved from Texas (CST) to Florida (EST). Brought my vonage equip. with me and kept my TX phone number. Just bought a new Philips CD440 phone. I set the date and clock to correct time. When I receive a call, my phone then reverts back to CST (loses an hour). I have checked all my Vonage settings; they show me as having EST and my new FL address. I can't figure out what is making the Philips phone think it is in CST. This is spooky.
