    I have the same problem. I have 2 docking stations-- one for upstairs and one downstairs. The laptop is doing it on both so I believe it has something to do with the laptop itself instead of the docking stations.

I have the Dect 1683 with three handsets. We had a hurricane and the power went out and not all three handsets read "Searching" and I get no dial tone. When the phone rings it rings but you...

Just unplug the base unit from AC wall power socket for a while, say for about 5 minutes or so, replugh the base unit to power socket again. Place each handset on it and synchronise it with the base unit. As you put it on, you will hear a beep sound. Now the ahndset ahs been synchronised with base unit. Do this for the other two handsets. OK.

Hand-set Intermittant and clicking

If all your handsets simultaneously recently starting having this problem, the first start would be replacing your base after you have determined a site problem as cropped up. Did you or a neighbor add any wireless devices lately? Did you move your base? Your problem is a common problem with all cordless devices where the base and handsets are not communicating properly with eachother, it is common that it is interference, or your radio modules in your base/handsets are failing. Try powering down you base for a while, then give it a try. But I would look at your environment and see if anything changed. Good Luck

XB3000 Intermittent power

wow like XB3000 day, find it in garage sale for $3?
DV9000 is a match !
This is dead product, now in the LEGACY status....(means dead)
NO OS stated, XP??? why post leaving out the most key part.?
this device has zero support at HP now. zip
and is a 2005 produced (first one) and is XP only, (will 2005 is that)
the drivers are not available now. anywhere,
so... only google might find them, I see zero

HP does not support old legacy devices, who does?
no law requires over 10 year support.
so if all XP drivers for the XB3000 are present
and all batteries are good.
power packs all good.
and no XP viruses present (never seen 1 XP clean in my life)
then it can work
did you read the manual first


try to know that parts this old can not even be sourced now.
did youo ever work in production factory like me.?>(sr. tech)
ever see things go obsolete like the drop of hat??
need list of all chips not gone. from earth , have it. its near endless.
no company in the world , can just wave a wand and have parts
not made now , magically , show up.

how ever if rich and want to fix a device that has street value of about $3 it can be fixed,, $300 labor.?
with hard work, finding legacy parts, only ebay has them.
parts not made now. or google for them. 1 by 1.
we do this all the time but not on $3 devices
(high end projection systems?)
now learn this, first find what is really broken and then lay blame
not throw mud lacking facts. and win.

the batteries are not in warranty and not one other part either.
this is what LEGACY is all about.

No lie i could fix it but you cant afford me or my tools.
sorry for the hard truth.

one other problem is the HP has no books with schematics
a tech needs those. to do the diagnosis.
its really just a toy, a throw away device.
if you went to ebay they can be had for $5 working, near free
less than a pack of CIGS.
why fix a $3 box when a $5 box works> ????
