Phones not charging

My phones are NOT charging, and they are very warm and I think they are giving off some type of radiation from the batteries. Should I throw the phones away or replace the batteries?

You should definately throw the batteries away. They are probably close to dying and have very little battery life every charge. everytime you charge your battery it has less life in it so if it is old it might be time to replace the batteries.

My Panasonic modelkx-tg4741will only charge on one charging stand out of four. the base will not charge. I installed new batteries in each phone


1. Check the power supply from the wall outlets being used for all phones and check the wiring connections to the phones.

2. These phones can only use Nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. Don't use some other type of rechargeable battery such as a Ni -Cd rechargeable battery. Check that the battery installed in all the handsets is the Ni-MH type.

3. Clean the contact points on the charging stands and base unit.

4. Remove all the batteries from the handsets and clean the battery contact points.

My uniden cordless phone is not recharging, even tho i bought today a new battery at 17 dollars a pop at radio shack. the regular part of the phone unit with the answering machine on it works fine, help???


Your phone charger is shot. New batteries will not help if your battery heats up during charge or stays hot when left on charge. If the battery never gets warm and your charge light doesn't come on then it is a different problem. The phone manufacturer suggests you buy a new phone.

I left my phone out in the rain and it is "dead" - what should I do?


Ity's probably damaged beyond recovery, but you might be lucky - depending on how far the water has penetrated.

You don't give the phone's model number so I will have to give generic advice.

The first thing to do is remove the battery, or battery pack. (If it is easy to take the back off the phone then do that also). Now leave the battery door off the handset and place the handset in a warm, dry place (airing cupboard if you have one, or near a central heating radiator). Leave it there for several days or even a week, as the moisture will take some time to evaporate.

Replace the battery pack and try recharging it.

Phone has been unplugged for a few months, then when we plugged back in, it won,t stop the light flashing


Just had one thought about this.Condensation has probably formed on the circuits.

Take off battery ,take out batteries dry if damp.Place all of the phone into a warm room (NOT on a Radiator) and leave for 12 hours and see if things are better.

Give it ago, hope it helps.!

Usually ,phones don`t survive in water. But the best shot is to remove battery from the phone,dry the battery compartment with kitchen towel and battery.

Now leave it in a warm room for 24 hours(NOT on a RADIATOR, reconnect and fingers crossed for you !

My phones (philips cd445) will not hold a charge for more than a few hours off the cradle...yes I have replaced the batteries, twice. once with disposables, once with rechargeables


You might have what is called "memory'. If you continue to replace the phone on it's charger after each call the battery will "think" it's empty, giving you s short charge time. Next time you replace the batteries (rechargeable) FULLY charge them then leave the phone off the charger until you go to bed at night.

Phone dropped in water- 2 problems


It sounds like like the phone's microphone isn't working. That's why the other party can't hear you. Your ear piece is working because you say you can hear the other party.

What makes you believe that the battery isn't charging? Batteries will get warm when they are charged. This is normal. However, you say "hot". How hot is "hot"? Can you keep your hand and fingers on it without discomfort?

I don't believe you can plug the battery in backwards. That would cause the battery to get hot if the + and - were swapped. The battery connector is polarized to prevent that from happening.

There still may be water in the micophone and the phone that you can't see. I would find a way to make sure its really dried out.

The best way would be to take the handset apart but that isn't always easy to do for most people. However it would give you a chance to inspect the microphone.

You might try placing it in front of a hot air register that is putting out warm air from your furnace. Remove the battery & battery cover so that the warm air can get into the inside.

The microphone have have been damaged from the exposure to water.

Handset gets warm on charging stand


The handset and the AC adapter can become warm. This is normal operation on this unit. If it is too hot to touch, your unit is need of repair.

Handset reset / re-registration problem Motorola E51 MD7161-3 5.8 GHz Quad Cordless Phone (base unit with 3 handsets) no longer detecting handsets. The handsets suddenly stopped working and continuously displayed "SEARCHING" and/or "CHARGING". Attempts to reset and de-register / re-register as suggested by Motorola's Online Tech Support barely succeeded only for a while but ultimately failed. De-registration resulted in the handsets all displaying "ENTER BASE ID" continuously despite repeated entry of the correct Base ID. The problem seems to be in the Base unit's recognition circuitry because the message answering system still works fine, handsets are lit up o.k., keypads work normally, etc. In fact, one of the handsets was detected and worked for a while after persistently entering the base ID within a 2-day period. Then another handset was detected and worked briefly after another 2 days of persistent entry of the base ID. However, once the AC power and handset batteries were removed in an attempt to relocate the system to see if that would help then all handsets just display "ENTER BASE ID" continuously. The message answering system still works as usual without any problems, though. I really would like to get this system working again because it's got just the features I need. However, if all else fails, then I am looking at online reviews of the new Panasonic DECT 6.0 KX-TG9332 or KX-TG8232B and will consider one as a replacement. Can you offer any new solution for the Motorola E51 MD7161-3 problem? If none, have you reviewed the new Panasonic DECT 6.0 KX-TG9332 or KX-TG8232B yet and would you recommend either one?
