Question about Vtech 5867 Cordless Phone
Phone was left off charger for a few days. When it beeped loudly because the battery had run down, I put it back on. The charging light does not go on now and the phone does not light up or show anything on its display. When picked up off the base, the phone beeps again to indicate low battery. I checked the bottom of the phone and the base - nothing seems to be interfering with the connection. How can I fix this?
First off all You should try disconnecting the phone for a few hours and then checking your internet connection. if the problem reoocures while the phone is unplugged then the phone is not at fault. If it doesn't - reconnect the phone verify that it's not plugged to the same power outlet as the router and place the Vtech base in a diffrent part of the room. good Luck

I had the same problem and this procedure fixes it! First, unplug the power to the main base (answering machine) for 20 seconds. Plus it back in. Put the phone that says "not registered" in the main answering machine. It will say "press the find handset for 4 seconds". Do that. It will run thru a series of stuff and will find the handset. It works! Rich (jambones.com)

I just had the same problem. Could be dirty terminals. I took the battery out, cleaned the terminals on the battery and phone with a pencil eraser, put the battery back in and it's working fine. (Says fully charged, where just a few minutes ago it said low battery).

You are pretty close to the solution. The problem is the charge detection in the handset. All handsets on a cordless phone detect the battery level with an hexadecimal value in the memory. Each hex value equal a volt value of the battery. EX: 3.5v = 9B
3.6v = 9C 3.7v =9D etc... The problem is the hex value in your defective handset are all mess up. So 9B is not 3.5v anymore. Then your handset could last 1hr after foul charge or doesn't alert you before the phone goes dead due to low BAtt.

I had the same issue and by changing the battery my problem was definitively solved. I bought the battery on ebay for about 5$.
