Question about AT&T EP590-2 Cordless Expansion Handset

Open Question

I have two ATT EP590-2 expansion handsets that have a loud "clicking" noise while being used (talking). This is happening on both of the expansion handsets, but does not happen on the base unit. That base unit has clear sound without the "clicking" noise. This "clicking" noise started when I switched from ATT phone servive to Comcast CDV phone service. All of the other phones in the house are clear......just not these two expansion handsets. Is there a way to stop the "clicking" noise while talking.

SOURCE: More than one base unit

Yes it is possible. The units operate at different channels and digitally coded. The expansion units has to be programmed to what base unit it will be used. The base units have unique 15 digit code that you will have to program on the expansion unit that you want to use it to. Up to 8 expansion units can be associated with 1 base unit

SOURCE: OUT OF SERVICE MESSAGE

Hi J,

Apparently that one from Ebay looks nice but has issues (not uncommon). If you took it out of the box, charged it fully and its has garbled audio, then the handset or the base is defective, or both, but at least at this point you can get a handset to "communicate" with the base and the "in/use light turns on, when you try to access a line,correct? . If you get the "out of service" message when trying to "move" the "ebay" handset to the other base, it sounds as if the base station and handsets are "coded" and were married together at the factory and one handset won't interchange with anothers base. However, try this before you go the repair service route, or roll the dice with another fine product off EBay :). Unplug and power down both bases, the one from Ebay and your old one. Take the Ebay handset and set it in the charging cradle of your old base. Power up and wait three minutes. Plug dial tone in and give it a try. If it still says "no service" , and won't light the "in/use" light when you try to use it then it won't work with your base, or/and your old handset you lost is somewhere near and is still communicating with its base. Now if you lost your handset weeks ago, then the odds that it is still alive are pretty slim. But I have heard handsets in the warehouse beep for days til their battery dies. You can google cordess telephone repair for service. Good Luck. CG

SOURCE: Unable to talk on two handsets at same time when receiving a call

Unfortunately that is the untold story about cordless phones they only have the capability of 1 open line be it the handset or or the base. There are some very pricey multi line systems, I have the same system bought two extra handsets and found out too late that I can only use them one at a time! Sorry probably not the answer you were looking for but thats the reality...

Why do all three of the cordless phones (the base phone and two handsets) make a clicking noise?


I am not sure what clicking noise you mean, but if it is constant clicking in the earpiece about once or twice a second it may be interference from a nearby wireless device such as a laptop or microwave, or a wireless router. Try moving the base station away from any such objects.

Make sure the home base is plugged in and functioning, and that the base for the expansion handset is also on, plugged in, and functioning.

Can the phones be left in the chargers continously?


Yes....in fact it's best to return the handset back to the cradle after use.

This is what Uniden says about battery life.


(With average use, your handset battery provides more than ten hours of talk time and approximately seven days

of standby time. You can achieve optimum battery life and performance by returning the handset to the base or

charging cradle after each use. When your handset is left off of the cradle, the battery will gradually discharge even

if the handset is not being used. The actual talk time duration will be reduced in proportion to the amount of time the
handset is off of the cradle.)

Fax like noise


Is this a new phone?
If it sounds like a faint fax noise, most likely you are running ADSL on the line? Those noises are from the modems talking back and forth to get internet on your phone line. Look to see if you have the line filter before the telephone... this will cut out the fax like tones.
Good Luck!

Loud Knocking


If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

GE cordless phone 2.4 ghz


Your phone must be away from other appliances (i.e. microwaves, radios) and computer equipment (i.e. wireless routers, monitors). The phone runs on 2.4GHz which often conflicts with them.
