I have a Panasonic KX-TG5633. It has worked fine for several years. suddenly one of the handsets no longer syncs to the base. I've followed the instructions to register it to the base, but it refuses to...
I am so tired of all the answers that don't help by repeating standard answers that you already know won't work or giving directions for a totally different product. The fix here is simple but not easy. It's either a bad charging/battery connection, a bad battery or both. Low power will cause the exact problem asked here.
As the phones get older, and I'm specifically talking about Panasonic cordless KX-TG563x but this may be true of other rechargeable devices, the metal contacts for charging and battery do not make a good connection like they used to. They may look perfectly fine and free of corrosion but are not actually making a good connection.
Symptoms include the phone getting hot while charging and not holding a good charge. The phone may show 3 bars of charge but still blank out like the battery is dying. With these Panasonic phones, weak battery will cause the phone to unregister and will give false charge level readings in the display. If your phone gets hot when charging, this is most likely your problem.
I had this problem with several handsets and used contact cleaner on the charge base, the phone contacts, the battery contacts inside the phone and on the battery itself. It fixed all the registration, heating and charging problems. I had one stubborn handset I had to clean multiple times but it's now working like new as well. I used DeoxIt contact cleaner from Caig, bought it on eBay. Great stuff. If repeated cleaning of the contacts with a good contact cleaner does not fix the phone, replace your battery. Use contact cleaner on your new battery for best connection. Ebay is a good source for replacement batteries as
well. Good luck!
