Both handsets developed the same problem almost in the same time (a couples of hours difference) . The handsets were never dropped, never used in wet environment ( never used them in bathroom ).

I had the same problem, and it seems that the battery charging circuit in the handset had locked up, constantly charging the battery until it overheated. I was able to reset the circuit in my handset by completely draining the battery. Here is the procedure:

1. Remove the handset from the charging cradle, and leave it on for a few days until the battery runs out, and the handset finally turns off. At his point, the battery will be very low, BUT NOT COMPLETELY DRAINED.

2. Next, you must manually drain the charge remaining in the battery by shorting out the two contacts on it. Shorting won't damage the battery, since it is holding very little charge at this point. An easy way to physically do this is to remove the battery, and place a piece of thin wire across the the two contacts of the HANDSET. I am referring to the contacts inside the handset that connect to the battery, NOT the contacts on the bottom outside that connect the handset to the charging cradle. Next, put the battery back in, sandwiching the wire between the battery's contacts and those inside the handset. This will hold the wire in place. DO NOT PUT THE HANDSET BACK INTO THE CHARGER, WITH THE BATTERY SHORTED OUT.

3. Wait about 30 minutes for the battery to completely die. Remove the jumper wire, and but the handset back into the charger.

4. If the battery was fully discharged , you will get a message on the handset telling you that you should let it will charge for 7 hours. If you do not get this message, then either the battery was not fully discharged, or your problem is different from mine. Try the procedure again in Step 3 for another 30 minutes to discharge the battery some more.

5. If you get the "Wait for 7 hours to charge" message on the handset, then leave it in the charging cradle for the 7 hours requested. After that, it should work fine.

Let me know how you make out.

I followed Crazy Tom's solution. First, Thank you Crazy Tom for the solution. I am so thankful to Google that connects people with problems with solutions on the net.

I am suggesting a slight modification to what Tom suggests. Instead of draining off the battery to zero, simply short the two contacts of each battery inside the handset. Meaning connect two wires, each wire connecting the positive and negative contacts inside the handset. And leave the handset for 3 hours or so. This should dissipate any locked up charge in the charging circuit. That's it! And now simply remove the wires, and plug in your batteries and let it charge.

My handset was showing low battery even with good batteries inside. Finally, with the above procedure, my handset charged and in less than half hour it fully charged the batteries and the charge indicator showed "fully charged".

Manual for Panasonic Handset KX-TGA560B


For the KX-TG5672, you should press and hold the Intercom button until the charge indicator flashes. Then press the button to assign the handset # 1, 2 or 3 (keypad 1, 2 or 3). Then press OK on the handset and wait for the handset to beep. These steps must be done within a minute from when the charge indicator flashes. It's best to have the base and the handset close together when you register the handset.

Panasonic has the manual for the TX-TGA560 available here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTGA560-MULTI.PDF . (This manual covers both the KX-TGA560B and KX-TGA560M.) The manual for the KX-TG5672 is available here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTG5671S.pdf .

If you still have a problem, try removing the battery from the handset and disconnecting the power cord from the base (from the wall and the base itself). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power cord and the battery for the handset. (Make sure that the base has power and the adapter is warm.) Then try registering again.

I hope this helps.

Adding handset to Panasonic KX-TGA542M phone. ? how to ?


I ordered a new kx-tg560m handset for my kx-tg5632 base unit, but the enclosed instructions for registering it with the base unit were wrong. Fortunately, I found the old quick setup guide in my files.

If you do not have the same base unit and handset, go to the URL:
http://www.panaxonic.com/RegisterYourHandset.

1. On the handset, press [MENU], then press [0][0]. The handset displays "Refer to manual to prepare base. Then press OK->"
2. On the base unit, press [SELECT] until the desired extension number [H1, H2, H3, or H4] is displayed on the base unit, then press and hold [CALL] until the CHARGE indicator flashes.
3. On the handset, press the [OK] softkey.

When the handset is off and sitting in the charger, the handset's extension is displayed in the upper right corner.
