Panasonic KX-TG5576 5.8 GHz Phones shutting down

Hi we have the above phone, great reliable etc. About 2 years old plus. Over the last 6 months the phones, even with a full charge are shutting down, sometimes and I mean sometimes it says get closer to base, but mostly just shuts down, mostly when we push talk. This happens if the phone has been off the base or charger for a little while. I recently bought a new battery thinking that would be the fix, but it is still happening to the phone with the new battery. The phones do not have any damage and have been fairly well taken care of. Can you help me? I cannot afford to replace the system at this time and if I did I would have to buy a cheaper model without talking caller Thank you,

Dave Makaravage

We have the Uniden PowerMax 5.8 GHz Tru 8885-3Hs and it acts similarly. In addition the base will randomly shut down during a call. I notice I can't hear the caller and look down at the base and the Welcome screen is powering up. I have the phone plugged into a surge protector. Any thoughts?

Try leaving the unit unplugged for a few minutes and power it up. There can be power surges during an outage that can damage the chips holding the software that loads.

How to add 6th handset

Hi John.

The full manual for this phone system can be found here ' ' ( I can't put in a live link since Fixya doesn't seem to like ftp addresses.) At any rate, go to page 42 and it goes over how to pair a phone to the base unit (though it does mention other instructions that will come with the additional phones.)

Hoping that helps!
