Make sure the phone line at the base unit is plugged into the LINE position, otherwise you probably have a wiring issue.

My DECT6.0 telephone will not give me a dial tone nor answer any calls neither will the additional handset..Although my verizon direct line functions as it designed


Hello.

Here are some tips, found online:

Reset the phone:

Unplug the battery in the handset, unplug the phone line from the base and unplug the electricity from the base. Leave everything unplugged for an hour or two instead of a couple to five minutes that way you can get more of an idea of whether your phone will work. After an hour or two plug in everything. If resetting the phone doesn't work then try the next step.

Check the surge protector:

Is the phone line plugged into a surge protector? The surge protector may have stopped working or blown a surge, a sudden burst of electricity, which may have caused the dial tone in your cordless phone to go. Unplug the phone line from the surge protector then plug it back in and see if you get a dial tone. It could be that the phone line plugged into the surge was loose or not plugged in securely.

Try a different phone plug, outlet.

Check the base:

Is the base dusty and have possible dirt in the prongs where the phone sits? Lift the base and blow off dust.

Check the handset for dirt.


Rub metal connections on handset and base:

Use a pen cap or coin and rub the metal connections on the bottom of the handset. Rub the prongs, metal connections on base.

Hope these suggestions help.

Try swapping the AC adaptor from one of the handsets with the adaptor from the base unit. That fixed my problem.

Expandable handset will not register


It sounds like the base unit has other handsets registered to it. This is why you are getting the message "All Handsets Registered". You will need to reset the base unit in order to register your two handsets.

Hopefully this will help you. Put the phone in an easily accessible spot where you can plug it in and unplug it easily. Unplug the phone, wait a few seconds, and plug it in again. Now, unplug it again, and before you plug it in once more, hold down the Locator button as you plug it in and all lights should flash on. It should emit a long beep, which means it has reset. If not, you will need to unplug it once more and hold down the Locator button again as you plug it in.

Once it beeps, it should allow you to add your handsets. If there is nothing on the handset display, press the off button, menu, then 001. It should then read "Press LOCATOR on base for 3 sec, Then press ok". At this point, you will need to hold down the Locator button until it flashes before hitting okay. The handset will be registered when it reads "Handset 1 Registered".

If this doesn't work, I would call Panasonic.

Good Luck!

D51A PD IS DISPLAYED ON MY ATT E2562 HANDSET. ANY


My E2562 handset 1 would not detect base and displayed D51A PD whenever I tried to manually register it. This fixed it:
1. Remove battery from handset.
2. Unplug base and unplug phone connection(s). Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in base.
4. Plug in phone connection(s) to base.
5. Put battery back in handset. Handset 1 should then auto register with base.

Just bought an additional handset for GE 27951 expandable 6.0 DECT Cordless. I press and hold the Page button for 5 seconds but the new handset will not register. Error keeps occurring "no base."


This exact thing happened to me. Same model number. No matter what I did, the new handsets would not register.

The solution? Reset the entire system:
1. On the BASE - Unplug from wall both power and phone line. Unplug battery from base handset.
2. ON the Extension phone - unplug from wall and unplug battery from handset.
3. Wait AT LEAST 5 minutes.
4. Plug back in BASE power.
5. Plug back in BASE phone line.
6. Plug back in EXTENSION handset battery. Don't plug in BASE handset yet.
7. Follow steps to program EXTENSION. When successful:
8. Plug back in BASE handset battery.

AT&T phone model E5634B


SOLUTION to AT&T Cordless Telephone/Answering System 4 phone set Model E5634B - Cannot answer incoming calls nor does caller ID work on phones.
Unplug the base for a few minutes, plug base back in, remove and reinsert the battery on each phone that does not work, then place each handset in the base for few minutes. Worked for me...all 4 phones can be answered and caller ID works!!! Hope this works for you... :o)

Not Registered


I had the same problem and this procedure fixes it! First, unplug the power to the main base (answering machine) for 20 seconds. Plus it back in. Put the phone that says "not registered" in the main answering machine. It will say "press the find handset for 4 seconds". Do that. It will run thru a series of stuff and will find the handset. It works! Rich (jambones.com)
