Since you didn't purchase the phone from FixYa, we can't send you batteries for it. Please contact the vendor you bought the phone from.
If you're in a hurry, you can pick up AAA batteries at any department, electronics, or office-supply store.
Like other LCD screens, your phone's screen has a little backlight. If that light goes out, the display keeps working but you just can't see it. There's a broken connection somewhere in the circuit providing the power to that light. Often this kind of trouble shows up if the phone's been dropped or something heavy has landed on it. When you press on the display, it restores that connection and the light comes back on. Finding that bad connection might be difficult because of how this equipment is made; it's usually not as simple as an obvious broken wire. Special tools are often needed just to open the phone, and other equipment for troubleshooting and repair.
Unfortunately, this isn't something you're likely to be able to repair
yourself. You might try taking the phone to your service provider or an authorized agent. They may have a repair service or offer a flat-rate exchange price. Call them to see what options you have. You might even find the phone is covered by some kind of insurance. If this is a pay-as-you-go type of phone, like a TracFone, you can purchase a replacement, then activate it in place of the damaged one. Contact the company by phone or check their website for options.
I hope this has helped. If so, please take a moment to give a thoughtful rating. Thanks for using Fixya!
Unusual problem on a new phone. Could possibly be radio frequency interference close by.
Some cordless phones operate on the same frequencies as in-home wireless networks. I believe this is the 2.8 megahertz frequency. The phones and the wireless networks can interfere with each other.
Most newer cordless phones are higher frequency (5.8 megahertz?). Wireless networks shouldn't interfere with those phones, but there could be other things that could (e.g., transformers on power poles).
If the phones are new, you might consider taking them back and getting another model.
In order to get the internet on your iphone you would need (i am assuming you are taking about an iphone) You would either need to connect it wireless to a wireless router or purchase the data plan from your phone service provider.
Nope you can you use a digital cordless phone on any analog or digital line. The term "digital" in refrence to the phone just means that the wireless signal between the base and the cordless is digital. Where as the actual line that the base is plugged into can be analog or digital.
press "mute" key to access menu, press the up or down arrow key labeled "caller ID- volume" until you get to "handset setup", press the "mute" key again, press the down or up arrow until you have "defaultsetting" selected, press "mute" key, press "1", then press "mute" once more. At this point your handset will reset clearing the indicator for all the handsets. I've had to do this twice on my phones and it worked every time.
