There can be several reasons for this beep:
1. The phone needs a good charge before using again.
2. The phone was default programmed to beep when not on the base.
3. There is a message to be retrieved which has not been located and looked at yet.
4. Another set has left a message and needs retrieval.
These are a few.
I hope this helps, let me know
Your manual will tell you about this on page 4.

I have a phillips CD240 cordless phone, on the screen is flashing SEARCHING and wont make or receive calls.


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. "Searching" means the handset cannot find the signal from its base, and if you check your base, it's more likely than not, dead. In my case, I checked this by pressing any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there was no response (although the handset seems to recharge power fine for some reason).

Therefore, 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 as per the binatone instruction. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked.

Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 new handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good (no different from the previous genuine set) and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset.

I don't have any high regards to binatone specifically as a brand because our last corded phone system was rubbish and died shortly after 12 months guarantee but to me it looks as if GAP compatible cordless phones have certain life-span however cheap or expensive they are (while handset seem to last much longer). Threrefore, there is more incentive to buy a cheap base new (of any make that are GAP Compatible) then connect your old handset to this base and live on 12 months manufacturer's guarantee and hopefully more. On the web, I saw some comments that are saying GAP Compatible phones and base sometimes do not successfully register each other (despite even being of the same make or brand). Obviously the users make such attempt at her/his own risk but I can confirm that the above combination worked for me.

Just for info, to do the registration successfully, the both base and handset must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting".

I hope this is helpful.

Best,
Ken

The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning.

Problems with skype video and sound


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Philips Skype phone 321


http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/v/voip3211g_37/voip3211g_37_dwv_eng.exe

Download from this link. Turn UCS in Vista off to eliminate it as a reason for installer not to run. Load the current version of Skype after you install the VOIP321 software.

http://www.skype.com/download/skype/windows/.

Ignore any offers from resident portion of VOIP32 software to look for an update to it's driver after you load the copy of this driver from the link above. This Phillips VOIP321 installer will always load an old copy of Skype which you do not want. Version 4.0.0.224 is a good copy of Skype.

Philips CD240 2nd phone wont connect - keeps saying searching


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. What you cannot confuse here is that handset and base. To do the registration successfully, the both must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting". The above, however, works 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 as per the BINATONE instruction. Then on the Phillips CD240 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good and they retained 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

Phone stopped working - purchased in Feb 2008


The first part of the error message is NO LINK TO BASE.

Since I can't find your specific model in the panasonic ca website, I just linked to the 5.8 G phones http://www.panasonic.ca/english/customercare/operatinginstructions/Results.asp

All you have to do is reregister the handset per the instructions. IIRC in mine, you press the MENU on the handset, step to register, then press and hold the HANDSET LOCATOR button on the base until it beeps.

It seems that a lot of people are having this problem, I'm sure that it's something wrong with the phone itself, but you can always update the phone's software from it's website as the update feature on the software does not seem to work, and update your IM software whether or not you are using MSN or AOL messenger. :)
