Question about Radio Shack Lands Phones

1 Answer

I have two 5.8ghz digital radio shack house phones probably about two or three years. Working fine until three days ago when I noticed that I would get one ring stop and then about 30 seconds later it would ring again only then could I answer the phone not on that first ring it would disconnect. Also on the phone display most of the time does not tell me who is calling getting very frustrating with this. I thought this was a comcast problem as I have the triple with them they came over and told me it is not comcast it is the radio shack phones. Can you help? thank you

It most likely is that the batteries are about shot.One thing you can try is unplug the phone base for about 5 minutes.When you plug it back in,you may have to set all the handsets back on the base for a few seconds to re-synch them again.If that doesn't work,it's probably the batteries.Since 5.8 gHz is fairly recent,you can probably find replacements.Make sure they have the same exact rating if you do.Mine is 3.6V,650 mAh.That is just an example of what you specifically want to match,both numbers.The brand isn't as important as the numbers.They are also likely to be Ni-MH.It means nickel metal hydrade.Most current batteries are probably that anyways but just something else to watch for.Also,buy as many as you need but first try only one to see if it fixes it.Surprisingly,3 years for these phone batteries is about all they last.Just from knowing that makes me question how effective the electric cars will really be.If you end up replacing your phones,DECT is the new technology but from what I have seen isn't all that.They seem more hype than good according to problems I have seen.Some of the better ones are AT&T,Panasonic,GE,perhaps Motorola and Verizon though.We are waiting for a good sale on them though or to buy an older model.I have not read anything about Radio Shack brand as far as problems if they have one.If you need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.

I have a radio shack pro 2096 that worked for years came home one day and no digital channels come thru anymore haven't touched a thing?!!

They have probably 'rebanded'- meaning that they moved the control channels. Go to radio reference dot com and see what the control channels are. IF they moved the 3 or 4 control channels and alternate control channels to the 700MHz range, then the PRO96 and PRO2096 probably cannot track it anymore and you will need a newer scanner from Uniden Bearcat or from Whistler. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

My Radio Shack Digital Telphone Answering Device TAD-3829 worked well for a little over a year. However a few days ago I discovered that I cannot receive incoming calls anymore; on the callers side there...

These 3829's do that often. After about 1 year or so of use, something fails internally, resulting in the symptom you see. Sometimes you get "Er" on the display, or the machine simply won't pick up and answer the call.
Bottom line - this model's not very good. Ditch it.

Radio Shack PRO197 works at friend's house but not at my house!

This seems to be a common problem with all digital systems (especially with TV signals), and the ONLY solution is a better antenna. I suggest you search eBay, Scanner Master, etc. for a low-end (price-wise) discone and mount it as high as you realistically can.

The BEST scanner in the world is only as good as the antenna that feeds it!

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent...

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.
