Question about Panasonic KX-TGA520M Cordless Expansion Handset

1 Answer

My Panasonic KX-TGA520M expansion handset (wireless 5.8GHz Gigarange Supreme) suddenly cuts off without warning from time to time when in the middle of a call. However, the battery indicator displays that the phone is adequately charged. Do I need to replace the battery or the phone? I've had the handset for about 5 years.

Yes,it's the battery.Ours does the same thing.Let it charge all day,5 minute phone call,call gets cut off.Being a 5.8 GHz,you may be able to find battery(ies) for it.Mine is older and batteries are discontinued(2.8GHz).Make sure it is rated the same,3.6V,600mAh,or whatever yours is,that is just a sample.Also,it should still be NiMH.Nickel-metal hydride.The packaging wil list the brand names it is for but the numbers definitely need to match 100% or it could cause more serious problems such as battery leaking from wrong rating.The newer technology is DECT 6.0 which was adopted from Europe technology.It is supposed to have better range away from the base,clearer sound,maybe a couple other minor things but I have my doubts as seen on trouble forums and sites such as this one.For one,they work at 1.9 GHz,which will give better range anyway because of the lower frequency used.1.9 GHz is about equivelant to trying to bend a 1/4" steel pipe around a corner while 5.8GHz is like trying to bend a 3/4" piece of pipe around a corner.The 1.9 signal has more "bend" allowed in literal terms.That's the best way I can explain it.Anyhow,I am waiting for a really good sale on phones for holidays to give it a try.Just unwilling to pay full price on a similar technology that was typical of all phones 10 years ago.If you do find batteries,I was going to say maybe buy 2 for each handset,but batteries do not do well sitting around for 5 years.They COULD leak and be worthless by then,unsure but never know.There are many factors to storing them so that they will last.They will be unavailable by then so we can't win for losing.Something like that.Good luck,Greg Also,if you ever get battery acid on you or anywhere you don't want,put baking soda on it ASAP.Baking soda neutralizes acid.Cover in about 1/4" thick layer.

Screen does not show anything

There seems to be a problem with your display screen or the connection might be loose. You phone care be repaired from any Panasonic or electronic shop as the problem is not that big. The screen display might need to be changed or the repair person will fix the internal connections because of which also the display might not be there.

Display for Caller Id incorrect

After calling Panasonic US at 1800-211-PANA (7262) regarding my kx-tga5420 and kx-tg5230 system's handsets.

On the handset, verify that Caller ID Edit is turned on first.
Menu-->Initial settings
Go to Caller ID edit
Select Auto edit ON
Exit the menu

On the handset main display
Hit the button that relates to CID
Scroll down until you find the desired 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx number that you want to
be displayed as xxx-xxx-xxxx
Hit the edit key until you see the number displayed as xxx-xxx-xxxx
(Note: You have to initial a call once you have saved the change.)

Now hit the TALK button to dial this number

Now when you receive calls from this number it wll show as xxx-xxx-xxxx instead of 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx.
