Base settings 'not available'

I have had a BT On-Air 1300 Executive for several years and I am, suddenly, unable to get it to work despite it showing that the battery is fully charged. When I go through the menu on the handset, the Base settings gives me the message 'not available'. Any suggestions? Thanks

Press Play. Keep pressed and switch off at mains. Wait a few seconds. Keep Play pressed and switch on at mains, keeping Play pressed for a few more seconds. Then, register handset with base.

It doens't show light anymore even when it's charging. Is there any way to reset anything?

Does the unit still work despite the light not working? If so then the LED probably just burnt out. You cant really fix this withought a working knowledge and tools for sodering. Even still its so tiny and done by machine. If the whole unit doesnt work then it may just be dead. The batteries in BT ear pieces rarely last beyond a year. Holding the power button for ten seconds may reset it similar to a computer.

Financial problems to go on with my bussiness without work need money very urgent

A business executive was deep in debt and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.
Suddenly an old man appeared before him.
"I can see that something is troubling you," he said.
After listening to the executive's woes, the old man said,
"I believe I can help you."
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying,
"Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time."
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check/cheque for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!
"I can erase my money worries in an instant!"
He realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check.
At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
"I'm so glad I caught him!" she cried.
"I hope he hasn't been bothering you. He's always escaping from the rest home and telling people he's John D. Rockefeller."
And she led the old man away by the arm.
The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he'd been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.
Suddenly, he realized that it wasn't the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

Bt xd 1500 keeps flashing base 1 whats the problem with it

I can`t find a manual for your phone.But have looked at one similar.
When the base is flashing it can be that you are still on the phone.
Or it can be when you have missed a call,answer phone or sms message.
The base may flash when the phone is charging.

I need a Code for RCA TV

Despite the fact that both apparently have the same brand name on them, if the two are several years different in age, there may not even be a code available. Also; you need to post BOTH remote make & model number as well as the TV make and model number otherwise no one can even research whether a code set is available.

Simply can't register any of my 4 handsets with my BT Synergy 4100 cordless phone. All handsets indicate base is "unavailable" there isn't a fault on the line as I have tested it and I have gone over and...

Partial solution. The handsets may be registered to another base.

So go into handset setting, then select base, (select another base if there is one showing).

Then go through the handset registration procedure again.

F 70 code on the Kenmore elete smartheat HE4

hello Whgispers42,
Huuum At your service!

You said,
We frequently have to start the dryer several times during one load. The dryer will run fine for a while then all the sudden give 3 beeps and then the F 70 code. Sometimes when you go to start the dryer you can press power and the panel will light up for about 3 - 5 seconds and then shut off again, this will happen several times in a row. We have been unable to solve this issue ourselves and are becoming very frustrated since this washer/dryer set are less than a year old. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. (If we are unable to fix this problem soon, it is likely that the dryer will make a sudden leap from the second floor window to the backyard)

Try this first!!
This is an error code.

This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not help, you said the machine is not one year old.
All appliances have a 1 -year warranty and the service and parts are free for that first year!
I hope you succeed with my recommendations.
Please contact me with your progress1

Bless You

Thank You
