Vtech 5867 won't charge

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).

SOURCE: Vtech phones loosing connection to base

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.

One of my vtech 5867 handsets is frozen. It is stuck on one caller id. Battery is charged. What to do?


Have you tried re-establishing connection with the base unit? Try setting it on the base and wait for the charge light to blink a couple of times and re-connect the handset and see if that helps.

The phone will not stay charning


Just remove the batteries, wait approx. 30 seconds and then re-install. Also, if you have spare batteries in the base, just swap them. Works every time.

Vtech i5858 (edit)


I've heard many people complain about how bad this phone is because of this. I owned the phone for a year before it happened to me, but it did happen. It only happened after left off the charger, even if only left off for a short while. What most people don't understand is that if it only works right off the charger, is that it's probably a dying battery. Instead they blame it on the phone like ****. I replaced the battery and haven't had an issue since.

Phone loses connection after few minutes


I looked up the battery specs for your phone. They are 3 X 200mah= 600mah battery packs. They should last 8 hrs talk time with the headsets. This style of battery pack in my experience only last about 1 1/2years and sometimes longer and "sometimes" shorter...much shorter. I bet you never had problems when you first got them. Basicly this "battery design arrangment" goes back many years before newer battery technlogy was developed. But designers still insist on using them even today. They are cheap to make. ****Time to replace them with new ones.**** Make sure you follow the mfgs charging instructions: "After battery installation, place the handsets in their base unit or charger and allow to charge for 16 hours before use. You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to their base unit or charger after each use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12 hours. Average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight hours depending on environmental conditions, standby time is approximately four days." Good luck
