Question about Panasonic KX-TG2740 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Base problem Hi...my base is only operational when you hit the 3,6 or 9 keypad #. It was working fine previous to this. The cordless functions..just can't use the speaker phone or remaining commands on the phone with the exception of mentioned above. I have had this until for about 5 years? I plugged and unplugged- then pressed lots of buttons..Could I have disabled something I am not aware of or??? Thank you! Suzanne

Something such as coffee or soda may have been spilled in the phone causing a loss of connectivity between the keypad and the contacts. The keypad is a rubber membrane with soft round nubs on the bottom that press against gold circuit board contacts when depressed. It would have to be disassembled and clean with q-tips and rubbing alcohol or similar solution. This is for a professional or handy person to perform only. You can get good deals on these phones on EBay for around 30.00 I have bought several phones this way with no problem.

I have a phillips CD240 cordless phone, on the screen is flashing SEARCHING and wont make or receive calls.


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. "Searching" means the handset cannot find the signal from its base, and if you check your base, it's more likely than not, dead. In my case, I checked this by pressing any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there was no response (although the handset seems to recharge power fine for some reason).

Therefore, I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible (binatone 1800 Single at Comet - 14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the binatone instruction. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked.

Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 new handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good (no different from the previous genuine set) and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset.

I don't have any high regards to binatone specifically as a brand because our last corded phone system was rubbish and died shortly after 12 months guarantee but to me it looks as if GAP compatible cordless phones have certain life-span however cheap or expensive they are (while handset seem to last much longer). Threrefore, there is more incentive to buy a cheap base new (of any make that are GAP Compatible) then connect your old handset to this base and live on 12 months manufacturer's guarantee and hopefully more. On the web, I saw some comments that are saying GAP Compatible phones and base sometimes do not successfully register each other (despite even being of the same make or brand). Obviously the users make such attempt at her/his own risk but I can confirm that the above combination worked for me.

Just for info, to do the registration successfully, the both base and handset must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting".

I hope this is helpful.

Best,
Ken

The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning.

My phone says no link to base but I am right beside it.


Sounds like the antenna on the base station is not receiving, or the cordless handset is not transmitting -OR- the sets have never been registered to the base station (please look up registering to base station, if the set has never been registered)

Did the cordless set work before?

The base station or the handset may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless set(s), and take out the batteries from the cordless set(s). Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, then re-install the batteries.

Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link between the base station and the cordless sets.

Good luck

Not registered


hello there i think this is because you need to register the second handset with the base here are the instructions

REGISTRATION
Registration links the base to a cordless handset. Once a handset is
registered it can use the base’s phone connection. A cordless handset will
not operate until it is registered to the base. During the registration
process, keep the handset near the base.
1. Press the flash/program button on the base until LINK HANDSET shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
2. Press the 1 number key or press the MESSAGES/CID (or) button
on the base to scroll to 1YES.
3. Press flash/program to confirm handset is linked to the base. WAITING
HANDSET REGISTRATION shows in the display.
4. Press the flash/program button on the handset until LINK BASE? shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
5. Press 1 on the handset keypad or cid/vol (or) button on the
handset to scroll to 1YES.confirmation tone when the handset is successfully linked to the base.
6. Press flash/program on the handset again to confirm. You will hear a long

Cannot reregister phones to the base.


If your base is a VT2651:
1) take phone off of the base's cradle.
2) enter **335782 on the keypad
3) phone beeps
4) remove all batteries from handsets.
5) reinstall battery in 1st handset, and enter the code number for the base unit (sticker on bottom of base). First handset will be set to phone 1
6) repeat step 5 for all other handsets.

If your base is a VT2656, there is no keypad on the base. I don't know the trick to reregister the handsets. I wish I did, since that is the problem I am having.

Programming old handsets to a new base


Cancel the old handsets registration at the previous base unit if desired.
For additional handsets, you must register each of them at the new base unit. Only one handset can be registered at a time. A handset will be assigned anextension number at registration.


Make sure the base unit and the other handsets are not being used. Program the same way as the extra handset you bought.

Registration must be completed within 1 minute.
