    I have the same problem as Mike57's. When I try to dial out on line one I get error inhibited and I can not answer line 1 on that phone. It does not even ring on that phone but on line 2 I can dial out and it rings in. Please contact Paula at jonesandjonesllc@bellsouth.net.

Unplug the phone, remove any batteries, and unplug the phone cord, wait ten minutes, and replace batteries, plug it back in and it should reset it.

The intercom button keeps flashing red and green and it will not let us use it. It says Error: Inhibited


If you have more than one phone then its probably flashing because the phone ID is the same as another phone on your system or not setup up yet with an ID just has two dashes (--). or you if you have more than one phone on the system and have more than 2 lines coming into the phone, they all have to be on line 1 together in the first port on the back. Communication between sets are done on line 1

Just bought an additional handset for GE 27951 expandable 6.0 DECT Cordless. I press and hold the Page button for 5 seconds but the new handset will not register. Error keeps occurring "no base."


This exact thing happened to me. Same model number. No matter what I did, the new handsets would not register.

The solution? Reset the entire system:
1. On the BASE - Unplug from wall both power and phone line. Unplug battery from base handset.
2. ON the Extension phone - unplug from wall and unplug battery from handset.
3. Wait AT LEAST 5 minutes.
4. Plug back in BASE power.
5. Plug back in BASE phone line.
6. Plug back in EXTENSION handset battery. Don't plug in BASE handset yet.
7. Follow steps to program EXTENSION. When successful:
8. Plug back in BASE handset battery.

I have RCA Executive Serices 4 lin system Phone and I used to use headset all of sudden I hace message saying " Error: inhibited ". Would you plaese help fix my problem. Thanks for your...


Tom,

I had the "error: inhibited" problem with my RCA 4-line Executive Series phone as well.
When I checked the line from the phone to the wall outlet, I saw that it had come undone.
After I plugged the phone back into the wall, it started working normally again.

I recommend substituting in a different, known-good telephone to see if that works.
If you can't get any phone to work plugged into that extension, then the extension is dead.
If another phone works but your RCA still will not, then the problem is with the RCA phone.

A similar idea is to try moving your RCA phone, substituting it in place of a working phone.
If it works in room X but not in room Y, suspect the phone wiring running to room Y.

This phone employs a common but awkward means of wiring up lines two and four.
Line two is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line one.
Line four is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line three.
A phone cord has four wires running through it, but a phone signal requires just two.
The piggybacking technique leverages the cable's free pair to feed a second line.

The upshot is that one can test the wiring for lines one and three with a simple, plain phone.
To test the wiring to lines two or four, some specialized knowledge is needed.
In place of that knowledge, a different two-line phone which also piggybacks might be used.

That's detail you'll need to consider only if your problem is specific to line 2 and/or line 4.

Anyhow, I hope I'm not patronizing by being too simple. But, I had this problem too.
It turned out to have nothing to do with the phone itself; the signal wiring to it was bad.

I realize that this feedback is a bit late and that you've likely already resolved your issue.
Perhaps this feedback will someday help somebody else (since these Q&As are archived).

Regards,

Lincoln

LINE 1


You can try the following:

Restoring the Defaults
This feature allows you to reset all the menu settings to the original default settings.
1. Press the MENU button.
2. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to RESTORE SET.
3. Press SELECT.
4. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to YES.
5. Press SELECT to save. To start over, press EXIT to return to the RESTORE SET menu.

If this does not help, and the cord is good (use another phone to test), then the phone is bad.

Hope this helps.

No Link to Base


to re-register the phone, hold down the "handset locator" button on the base untill he "charge" light flashes. then, on the phone, hold down the flash/call waiting button until the LCD screen says "handset registering." if after it registers it says "error!!!" then retry. that is what it says in the instructional booklet, but i have not done this successfully. mine keeps saying error.

Try unplugging your corded base unit, then replug. It should reset. Then you'll be able to go in and delete those messages.
