Buttons becoming hard to press on GE 27998GE2-A

Hello there,

I've had my GE phone for a few years and i'm noticing some buttons, particularly the numbers 1-3, becoming hard to press. I have to press very hard in order for it to "beep" and it's to the point now that it's useless. I would prefer not to buy a brand new phone as I have voice messages on my machine that i don't want to lose. I would like to just buy a new receiver replacement, is this possible?

Thanks,
Marie

    Same problem, buttons are hard to press and you have to hold them for like 5 seconds-then you will hear the beap. By the time you get to put in the second number, you just give up. There were not any answers to this problem so I could not try to resolve it. The phone is in very nice shape, but we just can not dial. Any help would be great.

SOURCE: brand new cordless handset -- no dial tone, no ring!

I doubt it's the battery. As I understand it the base works fine and the problem is only with a cordless phone. Are you using an external charger stand for the cordless handset? These phones need to be registered to the base unit. That is usually done by installing the cordless phone in the base unit but you may need to do that shortly after insalling the battery or you could have a register button or setting.

SOURCE: "New Voice Mail" stuck on screen.

Called GE. Here's what's happening (at least with my phone). I use VONAGE as a carrier. VONAGE's package includes voicemail. I have my VONAGE voicemail account set up to take any call that comes in if the answering machine on my GE phone does not pick up -- for instance if I'm on the phone and I do not "flash" over to the incoming call, that caller will eventually be sent to my VONAGE voicemail where they can leave a message. (Otherwise I would either take the call, or, if not already in use, the GE phone/answering system1.gif would simpy take the message.) This GE phone is commucating with my VONAGE account and letting me know that I have a mesage in my VONAGE account voicemail. All I have to do is either go online and delete the messages (after listening to them of course) and refresh the page. Once the messsages are deleted, the carrier lets my phone know the messages are gone and the NEW VOICE MAIL prompt on the handset disappears. I suppose I can do it by listening to the messages by calling in and deleting through the touch pad on the phone as well.

What worked for me was to call my phone from another phone and leave myself a voicemail. I then went in and retrieved and deleted that voicemail. Once I hung up from my voicemail service my handsets reset about 10 seconds later.

I hope this helps!

Cordless phone GE model 2-9635 Instructions to program speed dial


After a lot of research, I have found that GE has handed the phones and their manuals down to a company called "ThomsonTM" And if you come across any of problems for this phone in the future, I'll give you their phone number so you can still get help, at: 1-800-447-1700

Otherwise for help right now for the speed dial issue, I could only find directions that were of general use of multiple GE Cordless Phones, so it's worth a shot if you've got the time, otherwise, I suggest calling the number above.

Here is goes:

1.)Raise the phones reciever, or push the "Power/On" button.

2.)Press the "Store" button.

3.)Press the number 0 through 9 or a quick dial letter A, B, C,... to assign, then press the "Store" Button again to confirm the entry.

4.)Enter the number you want to assign the speed dials memory location, and press "Store".

5.)If your GE Phone prompts you to enter a Contact Name, use the keypad to enter it. Press the "Skip" button to enter a space, and the "Store" button to confirm your entry once again.

Once again, this is just a generalized GE Cordless phone guide, and may not be exact to your phone, in which I further suggest calling the electronic product's helpline by
ThomsonTM at:
1-800-447-1700 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting

Hope this helps!

the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test.
Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.

Only shows the number 1


You have a short in your button assembly or a bad cpu. If it is not a spill or moisture from something like that you have some serious electrical problems. JennD has some different issues, physical damage it sounds like. Both sound like they need to go in for repair. You can google cordless telephone repair to find a solution unless your phones are nearly new and you want to try the warranty route. Good Luck, Guru
