SOURCE: keypad does not work

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, might I suggest a reset, remove power from the mains (unplug) and remove any and all batteries. This would simulate a reset. In some versions, there is a reset button inside a pinhole just for this purpose. Of course, doing so would revert the unit back to factory defaults and all user settings, configurations, memory would be erased.

Another strong possibility is diry, corroded battery terminals or its just that the battery is nearing end of life.

Worst case scenario is a component failure which then would require the services of a qualified technician.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Panasonic kx-tga101s -- problem regarding making conference call - this is very much helpfull. But i have weird problem, i did call 1 person, and then i asked the person to hold and i made the other call....

Some Panasonic cordless phones come with up to five handsets each will need to be properly adjusted. You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones.

    I want to change the nombers of the rings to get start the answering machin

    These are the instructions from the manual, which I found here:


    This feature lets you select the number of times you want to phone to ring
    before the answering system answers a call.

    1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
    2. Press the MUTE/PROG button to go to the main menu.
    3. Press CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to HANDSET SETUP.
    4. Press MUTE/PROG button to confirm.
    5. Press the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the RING SELECT menu.
    6. Press MUTE/PROG button to enter the menu. RING SELECT 3 4 5 6 TS shows in the display.
    7. Use the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the your selection. The default setting is 5.
    8. Press the MUTE/PROG button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and the new setting shows in the display.

    NOTE: If you select Toll Saver (TS) the unit answers after the 3rd ring if there
    are NEW messages, OR the unit answers after the 5th ring if there are NO new
    messages. This allows user to access their answerer from another location and
    then hang up after 4 rings to save long distance charges.

    If you want to "make an announcement" using speaker phone using intercom, how do you do it

    When you intercom the extension, insert a STAR ("*") before the extension number.

    Dial intercom 12, will ring 12.
    Dial intercom*12, will page the phone and go straight to speakerphone.

    IF the far end user has their "MIC/HFAI" button lit, they will need to do nothing, they can just talk.
    IF not, they will need to lift the handset, OR, press the "MIC/HFAI" button, to be head.

    The phones worked great for about a week and then they stopped working altogether. There isn't a dial tone but the phone does ring when there is a call. We press talk and nothing happens.What went wrong...

    it sounds to me like you just got a hold of some faulty units. if you have the reciept i subjest you return them or have the store you bought them from replace them. your units should work longer than a week.
    the problem your speaking of is a manafacture fault.
    return or have them replaced.
