Question about Logitech Cordless Internet Handset Phone

1 Answer

Using Cordless Internet Handset with MSN Messenger

I am trying achieve the above.

The handset comes up as an option for speakers and microphone. I cannot hear sound when I run the sound test, I assume that the phone must be set to receive this but cannot work out how.

I can set it as the microphone but can only get it to register once I have pressed the dial button, after a few seconds however I get the incative tone!

Hopefully you can offer some assistance.

Many thanks in advance for your efforts!

If you're running the sound test through Skype's options and you click on the make a test call option, then you won't hear anything through the handset. I had the same problem and I spent a few hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. In the end I found out it was actually working all along.

What you need to do is add the Skype contact echo123 to your contact list. It should be the first one in the list from the United Kingdom.

Once that's done you should be able to bring it up on the contact list through Skype and initiate the call through the Handset at which point it will work properly and you should be able to speak to and hear the test call. That was the only way I was able to verify that it was in fact working properly.

Hand set out of range disply is on. How do I reset.


here are some tips from my manual for out of range problems
hope they help
• Only one handset can be used to make or answer a call anytime.
If another handset attempt to do so, the screen will display OTHER
HANDSET ON and then OR OUT OF RANGE. You might press PHONE
or SPEAKER again until no other handset is using the line. Use the call
transfer feature to transfer a call to another system handset
or use the speakerphone feature so multiple members of your
house can be on an active call at the same time.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the base. You might have moved
out of range.
• Ensure that the base is powered up.
• Place the cordless handset in base cradle for 1 minute to allow the
cordless handset and base to resynchronize channels.
• If the cordless handset is in its base and the charging light does not
come on, refer to the charge light is off in troubleshooting guide.
• Reset the base. Unplug the unit’s electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds
then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset
and base to reset.
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless
phone. Try installing your phone as far away from these types of elec
tronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, page
towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal
computers, kitchen appliances and cordless phones.

You advice was such a blessing


Haven't experienced this one, it should open if you right click on the icon in the tray at the bottom.

However you should still be able to change your Skype options, click on "skype", then "Tools", then "Options", then "Audio Settings", change microphone and speakers to "logitech" or whatever your computer has listed your device as. This should have the effect of changing logitech to "use handset" and gets the same result. Unfortunately the phone will never work as good as it should, for instance I can't make test calls. I hope this helpful.
