Question about Samsung Prostar 816 Phone

1 Answer

Phone "beeps" loudly when the handset is lifted.

Gradually some the phones in our office have begun to beep when the handset is lifted. It started with one and now it is three. We can't figure out what has happened to create this issue. It doesn't seem to affect the other functions, it's just incredibly annoying. Any suggestions?

    Sorry--I forgot to add they are Samsung Prostar 816 phones...your advice listed to fix the "only one phone rings" issue worked great so I thought you might know about this one, too.

No link to base


This may help. It's from the Panasonic help page:

You may try to:

Disconnect AC power adapter from the back/bottom of base unit, then connect it again properly.
spacer.gif OR, to resolve this issue, you have to re-register the handset.
  • To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the phone base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

  • To do this on a expandable cordless phone system:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button for the extension that is displaying "No Link To Base" on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset that is displaying "No Link To Base" until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

I had the same problem. To fix it, I unplugged the base from the wall, and the battery from the handset, left it all unplugged for 30 seconds, and then replugged everything back in. It works fine now.

Motorola 580 handset not working


My handset does not connect to the base station. It flashes momentarily, but does not find the base. The base station has a humming noise when the phone line is disconnected and the talk button is depressed. Hum is also present when the phone line is reconnected. The problem was resolved by replacing the 9VDC power supply. The hum disappeared and the handset immediately connected to the base.

RCA 4 line phone


Hi Richman,

If you have more than one phone line which I assume that you do -if one party has not completely hung up the handset after putting someone on hold when you pick it up on your end you will hear that beeping noise that you are talking about. Have them pick back up the line while you are on it and replace the handset again on thier phone to disconnect completely.

I hope this helps (trial and error)
Thanks
