Question about Southwestern Bell GH5810 Cordless Phone

Open Question

Phone beeps once about every hour

My phone keeps beeping 1 time about every hour or so. Like everyone else I can't locate a manual for it. There is also an icon on it that shows an envelope like I have a message but I have no voice services with this phone.

Is this beep letting me know I have a message "somewhere" and if so how do I get to it or is it to let me know The battery needs replacing ?

It sounds as though your phone has been hit by a power surge or lightning. Try the phone at another location and try another phone at this location to make sure there are no problems with the line. I would almost bet you will find that another phone will work but this phone will not work at another location. Phones are very susceptible to a power surge and to a lightning strike. If another phone works at this location then just buy another phone. It will be cheaper than having this one repaired. Phones are cheap but repairs are not. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Why five rapid beeps and screen saying "charge battery"? I had turned on and was charging, and 1 day later phone off and charge gone.


The batteries are defective, your local supermarket should have rechargeable batteries or try an online auction site, look for the highest 'mah rating you can get something like 2800mah, the higher the rating generally the longer the battery will hold charge

My GE cordless phone Model No. 28112ee3-a is not functioning and it keep beeping. I once found a code to stop it from beeping. can anyone help?


The GE 28112EE3-a was made by Thomson with the GE name. The manuals for most of these phones are available here: http://www.home-electronics.net/user_guides.asp . The direct link to the manual is http://www.home-electronics.net/USER-GUIDES/28112_DOM_EN_CL_IB.pdf .

What type of beeping are you hearing? If you are hearing a beep every seven seconds from a handset, the solution is to recharge the battery. If the battery won't hold a charge, then replace the battery with a 5-2721 Nickel-metal Hydride battery.

The handsets can also beep for about 2 minutes if another handset or the base pages them. This is a locator tone. Just press the Talk/Call Back button or the Tone/Exit button on each handset.

I hope this helps.

TO RECORD AN ANNOUNCEMENT:
1. Press A.
2. Choose the announcement location by
pressing s until the appropriate
mailbox is displayed.
3. Press R. Begin speaking after the beep
4. When you are finished, press S.
You will hear your new announcement.
5. Repeat Steps 1-4 to record another
announcement
— OR —
Press S.

TO REVIEW YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT:
1. Press A.
2. Press s to choose the announcement
you want to review (A, B, C, AO,

Or, if you're away from the office,
CHANGING ANNOUNCEMENTS:

number key (1-4) to select a line or mailbox.
Press 41 after the two beeps to play
your announcement.
NOTE: If announcement is being used by
both lines, re-recording the announcement
will change the announcement heard on
both lines.

I have a panasonic KX-TG2336S cordless phone and when you try to make a call the handset displays "no link to base". Can this be fixed or is the phone shot?


Just in case you don't have a manual
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTG2336.PDF

Page 55 lists your trouble and gets you to page 49. You take the bandset and base, press the locator button on the base and then press the flash/recall button on the handset until Handset Registering appears on the display. If it beeps one time, wait 20 seconds and it should register. If it beeps 3 times, keep trying.

BIS 34-D phone - Display window blinks date time beeps multiple times/day


The display will blink if power is cut either by unplugging or if the control system is power-cycled. The cause of the power glitches needs to be located & corrected. Changing the ring tone/cadence depends on which control unit is being used.

Phillips Windows Live Messenger phone


There can be several reasons for this beep:
1. The phone needs a good charge before using again.
2. The phone was default programmed to beep when not on the base.
3. There is a message to be retrieved which has not been located and looked at yet.
4. Another set has left a message and needs retrieval.
These are a few.
I hope this helps, let me know
Your manual will tell you about this on page 4.

Motorola MD4260


I had the same problem.
Here is the solution that I received from Motorola tech support:

1.Delete all messages
2. Unplug the power and re-apply power
3. Quickly press and release << (previous message) and >> (next message) buttons together while the "Press review to receive setup instructions" message is playing.
The display will change from a segment scanning clockwise to anti-clockwise
4. Quickly press and release the On/Off button before the "Press review to receive setup instructions" ends. The display will change to a square scanning clockwise.
Note, this goes by quickly. I had to repeat steps 1-4 a couple of times before I got it right.
5. Press and release the delete button. The unit will emit a beep.
6. Press and release the on/off button. The unit will emit another beep and annouce "Press review to receive setup instructions"
Done!
