Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
Replaced original batteries with GE 86511. The orginal battery nr is 80-5116/5017. The phones will work for awhile after chging then freeze. I remove & replace & then they'll sometimes work for awhile. If I leave in their chger they seem to get warm & won't work until the chg is down. I remove & replaCE BATTERY SEVERAL TIMES & THEY WILL START TO WORK for awhile.
Office Max tells me this is the right replacement battery.

I just had the same problem. Could be dirty terminals. I took the battery out, cleaned the terminals on the battery and phone with a pencil eraser, put the battery back in and it's working fine. (Says fully charged, where just a few minutes ago it said low battery).

Hi it sounds like the problem is with either the base unit board or the board on the phone.
Do you have one main phone plugged into phone socket and the other two are extra phones that just plug into mains and pick signal up off the main phone if this is the case then the problem will be with the main base unit.
So first thing i would do is check the cable to the phone from phone socket is secure and hasnt been trapped under furniture or somebody triped over it and damaged the wire.
If this is not the case then the problem will be with the base unti itself and as the waranty has ran out this usually means that the phone was only really supposed to last untill this time this is the same with most electrical unit you buy.
The problem could be something as simple as a bad solder on the main board near where the signal is sent from the base.
I would say that the actuall phone is not to fault because if the main phone was at fault then the other 2 would work fine.
If you are ok at taking electrical units apart and can test the board near the signal output on the base it might just be that the solder has failed after this time.
If the phone works for a short while before it dropps the calls then it more than likely is a solder problem the thing is it is difficult to get a spec sheet for these phones i will look and if find one let you know.
Have you tried plugging a different phone into the phone socket to eliminate a problem at the phone exchange let me know how you get on and ill let you know if i find anythnig for you ok

You need to de-register the broken handset then add (register) the new handset:

buy a new battery from ebay.
just type in the search box, 80-5808-00-00
(the battery number)
You should be able to get a replacement for around $6 incl shipping.
This worked for me anyway. (Same symptoms you described)
