Handset for ATT 5.8 GHz Cordless Telephone Model 5870

Problem is with the main handset for AT&T 5.8 GHz Cordless Telephone Model 5870 with Talking Caller ID/Call Waiting - about 5 years old.
The handset is quite warm to the touch and there is a blue glow around the ear piece which I have never observed before. Otherwise the handset is dead with nothing whatsoever displayed in the viewing window and no dial tone or ability to answer - dead. I replaced the battery according to instructions and waited 24 hours with no change - still dead. Is this handset kaput? Do I just need another one now? WHat would cause this?

    I have the 5870 also and recently purchased an additional handset to go with it.  The new handset quit working.  I thought it was the battery so I charged it and still got no response.  I tried switching batteries and the old handset still works but the new one does not.  I need to check my warranty on this.

I bought a new answering system rather than futz with the handset on my four-year-old one. For $80 I got an AT&T 5.8 GHz system with 3 additional handsets, batteries included, ready to go. Better ones can be had (DECT 6.0 Digital) for about $120. Contrast that with the one I bought four years ago, which had one handset, now broken, and cost $179,99 at the time. Made no sense to fool around trying to get the old handset to work.

I regret having spent $15 replacing the battery on the old one first cuz I thought that might have been the problem (though I knew in my gut it wasn't) - lesson learned there. Anywho, solved.

Had a att el52300 base that went bad so bought another one it seems to be working ok. all head sets have out of Range or no Power at base.Tried to clear with answer given but nothing worked Need help


Hi,
Try the following:
1/ Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in at the base and that it's powered on ie: light is on and working etc..

2/ Reset the telephone base. Unplug the electrical power. Wait for
approximately 15 seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and telephone base to reset.

3/ Place the cordless handset in the telephone base for one minute to allow the cordless handset and base to synchronize.

Is there anyway to retrive delted messages?


cordless phones come with up to five handsets each will need to be properly adjusted. You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced

Can't talk on both phone at same time. second on is always dead.


The DXI4286-2 is an Analog phone, it does not allow for both handset to be used at the same time. You can transfer a call from one handset to another, but cannot talk on both at the same time.
The following is from the user's manual for your phone:

Unavailable message is displayed
on the LCD screen of the
handset.
• Make sure the other handset is not already in use. Both handsets cannot be in talk mode at the
same time.
• Place the handset in the main base for at least 5 seconds to re-register to the main base.
• Make sure the handset is not too far from the main base when trying to use.

You might want to try one of the DECT or a Digital 2.4 or 5.8 GHz phones, they allow you to use multiple handsets at the same time.

Handset can not link.
• If any handsets become inoperable, place it on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.
No dial tone
• Check or repeat installation steps
• Make sure the base power cord is connected to a working electrical outlet.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is connected to the base unit and the modular phone jack?
• Disconnect the base from the wall phone jack and connect another phone to the same jack. If there is no dial tone on the second phone, the problem might be your wiring or local service.
• The handset might be out of range of the base. Move closer to the base.
• Make sure the battery is properly charged (for 16 hours).
• Ensure the battery pack is installed correctly.
• Did the handset beep when you pressed the TALK/CALL BACK button? Did the in use indicator come on? The battery may need to be charged.
