Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
At this juncture I would ask you to follow the procedure mentioned below. It will fix the issue. In any case the procedure is not meant for your phone then kindly do let me know the model and make.take the handset out of the base, and any spare battery inside the base. Press (**335782) on the base to de-register all of the handsets at one time, then register the handsets again.
It didn't work. So I called tech support. Turns out they forgot a step in the directions they emailed me. You have to be in a certain menu for the reset code to have any effect. Here are more complete directions:
Remove the spare battery (if any) and handsets from the base station.
Navigate in the menus to the "base settings". Your screen should say "ringer volume, ringer melody, keypad tone, tone/pulse, ..."
Punch in the reset code (including the stars): **335782
Wait for the phone to restart itself (about 5 seconds).
Re-register all of your handsets.

Simply unplugging power is not enough, you have to reset and re-sync the whole system, this is done restetting and synching back the handsets to cradles.
The system will reset and hadsets will synchronize to respective base units.
If that does not work, one of the base units may have been damaged by power surge. In that case contact VTech at the number listed on owners manual.

The phone system (cpu, Brains, Switch) is set for auto answer on your Ext. Either power was lost, programming changed or something along those lines. It is global, so if a call "rings" @ your phone, (any call) you can just lift the receiver and speak.
It sounds like the associated phone lines ringing in "lost" memory of your extension. Therefore it must be programmed or in the case of a toshiba system it has a software "glitch or bug". usually due to "I don't know". So I usually find a change was done to ringing by the vendor or just power loss to the system.
there are a million variables because it was manufactured in asia usually. I would need some more info. to be sure. I can tell you it is NOT your phone. try to reset the phone by unplugging for a minute , if no luck you will need the vendor to reset your Ext. with a laptop or do it yourself with the codes from the main or switchboard ext. I am sure I can give you the info to do this and make it ring again, but you are best off calling the dealer in case fat fingers get wild . you could do much harm by trying by one wrong entry and it is what I call Jinglish ( Japanese English or bad translation) in the manual. $80 or so is worth it , mostly if someone was out to change stuff while you where gone.
Or jus unplug the phone system and wait 1 minute before plugging it back in, that will reset the system kind of like rebooting windows and forcing it to re - load the system.
Good luck, let me know.
