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.
