Question about Philips Lands Phones

1 Answer

Phone can't find a signal.

I live in France and we have lots of violent storms here so I have to unplug my phone most everyday, usually when I plug it back in it works fine but the past few days it just keeps saying that it's searching and of course I can't use it, not sure if it's trying to synchronise with the base unit, any help will be appreciated please.

Put the handset into the base when it's plugged in, the light on the phone should blink and connect.

As for the unplugging part, buy yourself either a surge protector (and a relatively good one, not a cheapie version) or a small UPS (a.k.a. a battery backup unit) that will protect your phone from electrical damage from storms.

How do I fix my phone that says searching

That has happened to me before also. Usually what it means is that its searching for a signal or a connection. The bad connection can be caused by a storm or internet and phone constantly going out. Just unplug it and that should help, if not, then i would call your service provider.

I can't send an MMS or pic on my straight talk ZTE Majesty cell phone

If you do not have at least 2 steady bars of reception strength, text messages or pic messages could fail sometimes. If these fail no matter what signal strength, you should contact your phone provider (StraightTalk).

Just bought a new Blackberry storm 9530 and it is not getting charged. Please help

Usually for brand new phones, the battery needs to be charged for two hours. But if you found out after it's been a while and it's not charging, make sure the battery is inserted correctly. If it's and the led is not on or no charge indicator, do the following, take out the battery, unplug the charger from the phone, press and hold the power button for five seconds. This drains out the battery. Now put the battery back in, plug the charger into the phone and let charge. Don't worry if it doesn't recognize it immediately. I hope this helps

I have a panasonic cordless phone that now says ''line in use'' when it's not. This just happened and I can't seem to fix it. Suggestions?


With this most model of panasonic, you will typically find that the handset will say "line in use" when it is not, and you will have a busy signal when you call the phone from another line.

If you unplug the phone cord from the base, and the line is now clear and you now do not get a busy signal when you call it.

That problem is in the base, and not the phone itself. Its a common defect, that typically occurs after a storm has come through. Unfortunately it is not a setting or an easy component to replace. Your best options are to order a replacement base, or send your base in for repair (the chips that get blown cannot be purchased individually).

Better try to connect the phone to power surge to protect it from further danage.

Before sending the base to factory, try to take the battery out of the phone for a minute or two and then put it back in. Unplug the the phone (jack and power supply) including all extensions, then plug them in again and see whether it works...

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
