here are some tips from my manual for out of range problems hope they help • Only one handset can be used to make or answer a call anytime. If another handset attempt to do so, the screen will display OTHER HANDSET ON and then OR OUT OF RANGE. You might press PHONE or SPEAKER again until no other handset is using the line. Use the call transfer feature to transfer a call to another system handset or use the speakerphone feature so multiple members of your house can be on an active call at the same time. • Move the cordless handset closer to the base. You might have moved out of range. • Ensure that the base is powered up. • Place the cordless handset in base cradle for 1 minute to allow the cordless handset and base to resynchronize channels. • If the cordless handset is in its base and the charging light does not come on, refer to the charge light is off in troubleshooting guide. • Reset the base. Unplug the unit’s electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and base to reset. • Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away from these types of elec tronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, page towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and cordless phones.
