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 ID...lol Thank you,

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?

SOURCE: 2 uniden cordless phones aren't working

I don't know if this helps, but perhaps the problem is using two or more phones. On a whim, I charged a Uniden EXP 970 that my daughter gave me a few years ago. Charged right up and it has been working for about two days. I didn't think it would charge at all but to have it actually work, I was amazed!! Will post if it quits anytime soon.

FYI I bought two phones from AT&T, each around $200 and neither of them worked after a week. I was not happy! These less expensive phones seem to do a much better job!

SOURCE: No dial tone on handset

It may not be registed with the main unit. You may need to register the handset. With my uniden all i have to do is put it in the main base until it says what handset it is (it should be a number).

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

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.

Basically yes, check where you bought it they may have 'defective' units (bases) that they might swap out with you. If time isn't a factor, contact Uniden, and tell them what happened re: getting shocked (hopefully the phone had a chance to dry out prior to you using it); if neither of these avenues work, you'll have to do an internet search to see what's available. Give the amounts of time and travel, it may be cheaper to replace the whole phone & base.

Hope this helps.

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.


try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

Hi ive got a samsung galaxy s2 and the battery life is really bad. I will charge the phone fully over night and ut wont even last half a day. Is this a commen problem or do u have a dodgy battery


How old is the phone/battery?

Has the battery been fully discharged (used until it will not power up the item) very many times?
This is very bad for Li/Po batteries. If the phone is less than 6-12 months old, I would contact my cell provider and ask for a replacement battery. In lieu of your provider replacing it, your only option will likely be to replace it yourself. Unlike the old-school Ni/Cad rechargeable batteries, Li/Po batteries lose their ability to hold a charge if they are drained fully too many times. Also a good tip with a new battery is to charge it longer than just until the battery power indicator is full (overnight is a good basic rule, but check your phone's user guide or google the specific battery model for recommended charge times) for the first few charges, and avoid letting it fully discharge. Try to get it on a charger with at least 1 or 2 bars left. This will increase the life of a cell phone battery dramatically.

hope this helps,

I have a Canon PowerShot A530 camera which is around 4 years old. till recently it was working great but from last 3 months, it is giving false indication of low batteries and shuts down. Even after full...


if you are using this camera for 4 yrs with the same lithium battery then you might need to try a new battery
any lithium battery cell's capacity diminishes after long use. it reduces the cell's ability to deliver current. the older batteries do not charge as much as new one.
when you charge your battery it irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year.
hope this help

My office has the Prostar 816 phone and the manual is not detailed at all.. I needed to know how to change the time (due to time change) Our manual says #55 etc etc... Help me please!


To change the time on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down, enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming2.gif)
2) enter in #55 the screen should say YYMMDDWHHMM
3) enter in the year, month, day, day of the week, hours and minutes(the day of the week values are 1= mon. 2= tues. etc.)
press # when finished.

Hi have had my nokia 6280 for 2 and a half years now...replacing it soon but need it to function for another two months! problem is my battery started taking forever to charge and then stopped charging...


hi thanks for using fixya!!

On this kind of error, even if you had to change the battery or even the charger, perhaps the power supply internally is already damaged. Charging for more than 2 hours is a sign of something is not good and after that still shutting down. I recommend that you bring your phone to a Nokia Care Center or any service center to further check the hardware parts.

Regards.

Nokia 2285 is turning on/off by itself


It's a software issue. Take to a nokia care or repair centre for full flashing using a computer system.

Help everytime i close my phone it shuts off


The battery might be shot or your memory might be full, when my phone started acting funky I called my company and they saaid that if your memory gets full you hae to go and either delete some of your pictures or if you save a bunch of picture messages you have to get rid of them or something. If your battery is shot than you'll need a new one, I got one for five bucks brand new off ebay after shipping and handeling and everything.
