I have a 2.4 GHz cordless phone and when the phone is charging the talk button will flash red, and when this happens the phone will not ring, the call will go straight to voicemail. It works sometimes and not others and their is no trend to when this will happen. This is a work phone with multiple extensions and I am trying to figure out if the problem is with the line or the phone itself.

Set the phone on the charging cradle and press the ON button while phone is in crade. You may need to use the speakerphone button to do this. Turning the phone on while in the charging cradle will resync your handset with its base. Try it! It should work!
With the phone offline press MEMO. The IN USE light will flash. Enter the telephone number you want to store and press MEMO again. Then press the number key under which you want to store the telephone number. To use speed dial, press TALK, MEMO, and the number button where the telephone number is stored.
clean contacts to allow the battery to charge. Cordless phone battery near dead. I took butter knife and scraped the 2 recharging strips so it could charge. After I did that my "red charging dot" stayed on and phone now works like new again. If this does not work then you may have to replace battery in phone. Mine I could buy online for around 10 bucks, but I am glad I didn't have to do that.
batterys don't normally last long as constant charge with short breaks are bad for them. i'd bet the battery. does that happen with both phones?
\put a multimeter to the pins on the charger. my tongue tests 9 volt batterys
I always tell people NOT to buy new batteries to try and fix their cordless phone. It seems to rarely solve the problem and you are usually better off just spending the money on a new phone.
Unfortunately 5 years is a long time for cordless phones these days.
There are so many brands, and so many thousands of models, it's impossible to keep track of them all.
