Hi, used Doro 5065R +3 for year, found that the battery of the handsets were end of life, called Doro and advised to take the battery from **** Smith. After replaced with DSE (brand name) NiMH rechargeable batteryHR03 1.2V 700mAh 70AAAHC, the charging seems alright, the signal shows strong but it drops out within 10 seconds on in-coming and out-going calls. Any reason for that ? I haven't kept the old battery but I can remember that was 500mAh, DSE told me that's not a problem. Please advise.
Re: Doro 5065R +3 not working after replaced battery
I have replace my doro batteries with Duracell rechargeables, just make sure you fully charge them before you put them in the handset. If you find after a time that the charge goes again, charge them again (in the charger you buy when you buy the batteries)! Hope this helps. PS, do you know how to turn the answering machine on?

Open the battery comparment on the handset. Under the
battery there should be a small sticker with the model
number. Take this number to www.manualslib.com and
you'll be able to download the original users' manual....
which will then answer many questions.
The NiMH batteries used in these phones have a useful life of about 2 years. With only 2.4v at normal operation, the amplifier circuit will start to pick up interference as the voltage drops in an old battery. If you hear a constant buzzing, no matter your location or distance from the base unit, then it's most likely your battery causing the problem. Some phones are more susceptible than others causing the buzzing to start earlier than another phone. Battery Buzz is a good indication to change your battery as soon as possible. As the problem gets worse you will have voice and connection problems. Since transmitting uses the most power, you will be unaware when your voice quality drops dramatically for the people on the other end of the call.
I get the same problem with my Uniden. Seller said batteries but it happened on multiple handsets. I purchased another of the same model so my extra handsets would work and I get the same problem. I am buying ANOTHER phone - different brand - and if it still happens I know it is Time Warner. (most problems are with them anyway - they blew my 60" TV and would take no responsibility. Too bad they have a monopoly.)
This is because the extra handset might have not been registered with the base unit.The headset should be register to use the headset with that base unit.
To register the handset to base unit please follow the instruction:-
On registration the handset is allocated a handset number for use on the new base unit, the handset numbers are 1-5.
1. Press and hold on the base unit until starts flashing. Registration mode will remain active for approximately 3 minutes. 2.Press and hold both together until you hear a long beep.
3.Select the base unit you wish to register by pressing the corresponding number button 1-4. 4. When PIN is displayed, enter the units PIN number (0000 for this model). 5. If the registration is successful the handset will return to standby mode in a few seconds. Thanx
Problem fixed.......after a call this morning to Doro tech support. It was a simple fix..........simply hold down the # key to lock or unlock the keypad. Unfortunately I had overlooked that section in the manual.
