    forgot to say that I have tried the base and phones at another house and got the same beeps

    also tried at different phone sockets in my own house

    have noticed sometimes the battery shows as being charged but there are times when the battery symbol shows empty and that it is charging - will try some different batteries

    can't understang why this is the same for both phones, even tried swopping the batteries from phone to phone!

  • chrismac Mar 07, 2008

    yeh I was thinking of trying non-rechargeables. I will let you know the outcome! I won't charge them, thanks for the reminder.

    The pager button seems to work and does page each phone in turn.

    Is it possible to replace the charger

    Thanks for you help so far

I have this model of handset but as a triple. I get three beeps from the handsets if the batteries are low or flat.
Are your phones getting charged?


Try putting the base station into a different phone line/ socket if you have one.

if not - Try putting a corded phone on your phone line. Maybe there is something faulty with the socket, maybe there is no dial tone due to faulty wires?

    So you have proven its not the phone line.

    My triple set had a faulty charger out of the box. So any of the handsets on this faulty charger would show as charging but never get enough power. We don't use that charger anymore.

    I do frequently cycle the batteries around handsets because one always gets used less than the other two..This will hopefully prolong the battery life for all three handsets.

    Does the pager button on the base station make the handsets beep?

    I have done this as a TEST ONLY!

    You could temporarily try two NON chargeable 'aaa' batteries to see if these will make the handset work correctly - DO NOT PUT THESE ON CHARGE THEY WILL GO BANG/CATCH FIRE!!!. ONLY TRY IT AS A TEST!!!!! REMEMBER TO REMOVE THEM AFTER YOUR TESTING!!!

  • dan muggeridge Mar 07, 2008

    If the Pager works then it sounds like phones have sufficient power, so its not the line and probably not the batteries.


    The cable which goes from the main base station to the telephone socket could be faulty. Telephone cables are usually 2 pairs of active wires. The first pair carries the voice/data the second pair pulses at around 40Volts when the telephone is to ring. It could be that the two carring the voice/data are faulty. This cable is fairly standard, so you might be able to borrow one from another phone or even a modem if you have one. this will rule out that cable - which may indicate...

    ..That the problem may fall on the master base station. In which case try to get it swapped (if warranty) or do it cheaply by another single handset version and add your other two handsets to it as extra's. Instructions will be in the manual on how to do this.

Phone not working

Hi Pam,
Try these..1...remove your telephone line from base unit and fix it into a working land phone and check whether is it having normal dial tone.If it's having engage tone(beep beep...)remove paralleled phones and re connect to cordless base unit.
2.If line is ok (normal dial tone with full volume) & still display indicates line is busy, your main base unit must be having faulty components inside.Commonly these defects happen in thundering or surges through telephone lines.You have to take full set to a repair shop.

No dial tone when pressing hook fax is returned

The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

Phone beeping!

on some phones the beep refers to a voice mail message that has been left on your answerphone which will be left at the BT server, you can dial 1571 to retrieve the message. Other than that if you have re registered the phone correctly following the instructions on page 22 of the below manual, return the set as faulty.

Remove power cord with no backup battery

Each telephone must be connected to line 1 and line 2 for
proper operation. The remaining lines 3 and 4 may — or may not —
be connected to each station as you desire. First plug in the battery, then the phone lines (1 & 2 are mandatory), and third the power cord. If your intercome LED is blinking red and green, then press: STORE IN, followed by "INTERCOM" followed by a free intercom# (i.e., any of the memory buttons 1 through 16 not already assigned to another telephone set.) Then wait for the phone to go through its initiation sequence during which it searches each of the four possible lines. After that concludes, you should get dial tone on your active lines. :-) Marco

Signal indicator flashes constantly

The following worked when I had what appears to be the same problem. Solution :- Remove batteries, remove power connection, wait 30 minutes, re-connect power and replace batteries then press button on base until it beeps. Both handsets started continuous beeping which eventually stopped and everything was returned to normal. Admittdly this sounds almost identical to the process used by 'versailles' above, but at least it confirms that the technical info given by the BT Helpline does work

Registering a BT Freestyle 2200 handset
1. If there is a handset in the base remove it whilst you are registering the new handset.
2. Press and hold the PAGE button on the base for about 10 seconds until you hear a beep and the In Use light starts flashing.
3. On the handset to be registered, press and hold redial & CALLSd buttons together until display shows 65-.
4. Enter the base number. If this is a new handset then the base number is 1, the display shows 65-1 then PIN. which is normally 0000
5. Enter and registration starts. When the handset beeps and returns to standby registration is complete.
