    I am having the same issue except I have (3) GE 2-9450 that will not work and (4) GE 2-9541 that will only work on one of our two phone lines. The GE 2-9451s have been programmed down to be compatible with the GE 2-9450s. When trying to reprogram the older models all of the addresses they say they are full and now the phones signal an error when any button is pushed. Even after removing the battery and unhooking all wires for hours, the phones will not accept any programming.



    As for the newer models only accepting one of our two lines is another issue but any suggestions are welcome!

    I have the same problem. This happened before, and I found that there is a combination of keys/buttons which need to be held, and the phone will reset itself. The problem I have is I forgot what buttons/keys need to to used to reset. I am almost sure the "station/page" button needed to be held down, however, I don't recall what else was involved.

I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they didn't lose power. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the rec post inside the phone jack. Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension.
Good luck!

    FANTASTIC!! I had looked all over the internet and nothing would work. This worked on first attempt. I was then able to re-assign stations and ever other function. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

    I had the same problem and considered the cable but then decided to try something else first and it worked perfectly. I have Comcast cable and voice and internet. So I took each phone to the Comcast modem and plugged each phone needing reset directly into the back of the Comcast modem, of course with the phone power source plugged into an appropriate outlet. Then I pressed the Store/In button followed by the station button I wanted (I don't use the 'lower' locations on the station button but imagine it would work if you pressed 'lower' then the station button.) Then the phone automatically paused a moment then went through a clicking through a process and the phone was reset!! Thanks for the ideas! They helped me get to a solution, just as you did! Boy, cooperation and communication sure make the world better, huh?? :)

Callers get response ' memory full', but unit itself shows empty


Try unplugging the phone from the phone jack and power adapter and remove any batteries. Wait 15 minutes and reconnect everything to see if the problem is cleared.

When removed from cradle and then dial it gives a beeping sound and does not dial or have connection sound.


First, does the base have power? Is the handset fully charged and recognized by the primary base station (for a multi-handset system)? Is the base station plugged in to a working phone line (I like to use an old corded phone for checking this - listen for dial tone first)? Is the phone cord to the base bad (try a different cord)? Does your phone work with the base plugged into another phone jack? If you can, check if the incoming phone wiring is working (there should be a box where the utility comes in that can be opened - plug in a test phone into the test jack there).

A bad jack is indoor wiring and you will be responsible for fixing it. (Depending on the faceplate, these are either multiple wires to screws or a terminal block. The screw type can be overtightened and break one wire.) If it is a problem at the utility box, your phone company should do the service.

I hope this helps.

(I've lost phone service at the box on one line of a multi-line home for unknown reasons and lost all lines due to a bad backhoe operator. Both were fixed asap by the company. A third outage only affected the dsl and was lightning strike related - damaged a noise/interference block.)

Unable to talk on two handsets at same time when receiving a call


Unfortunately that is the untold story about cordless phones they only have the capability of 1 open line be it the handset or or the base. There are some very pricey multi line systems, I have the same system bought two extra handsets and found out too late that I can only use them one at a time! Sorry probably not the answer you were looking for but thats the reality...

How do I clear the memory on my phone?


While the unit is in ready-to-answer mode, press and hold DELETE until the unit announces, "Messages erased."
• New messages can not be erased in this way. To erase new messages, play them then press DELETE during play back.

Here is a useful link that may help you, it is the instruction manual for your phone:

Changing the battery


Here is a link for the User Guide for your phone, there is a location under the phone to replace the battery... but in this document they have it all written out.

Storing memory numbers


1 - Lift the receiver and get the dial tone.
2 - Hit 'Store'
3 - Enter the number you wish to store in the phone
4 - Hit the store button again
5 - Hit the memory button you wish to store the number into
6 - Hang up!

This should store the number wherever you want to put it. Remember if you want to store it in one of the 'lower' positions (second line of the memory index card) push the 'Shift' button before you push the memory button for that location.
