That depends on the phone and the extent of the power outage. Some phones can draw sufficient power from the phone line, some need more juice.

We have 2 Vtech cordless phones -a 6.0 and a 5.8 I don't think either work when the power goes off. Can't even phone the Power co.. Is this normal ?

Yes, that is normal for all cordless phones. they are really just a radio that sends a signal from the base/charger to the cordless hand set. when the power goes off the base does not work at all. Go buy yourself a cheap corded phone, and when power goes off plug it into any wall phone jack and then you can make calls.

My nokia 7710 just died, cant turn it on, but i think the battery's working

Hi, when a cell phone battery works fine as you said and the cell phone does not come on, it is usually a fault from the board of the phone which the memory of the cell phone.

When the memory of the phone dies, the phone will not be able to power up by itself..

To restore by the phone to it's normal state,you will need to power up the phone by flashing the phone memory that was died..

Flashing the phone will make the phone power on and work normal again.

You can use the below link to no the process to flash the phone ..


Take care.

My phone only works when it is plugged in with a battery, but it is fully charged. If i take the battery out and use solely the power cord, it does not work.

I do not know anything about the LG LX370 phone but I have NEVER seen a cell phone that works with no battery.

A phone is a transmitter and requires a lot of power when it is in a call. This power cannot be transmitted down the thin cable and connector that you use to charge the phone so it uses the power from the battery.

You need the battery in for the phone to work, the power cord input should only provide a current limited charge for charging the battery.

Most chargers are rated at about 5V and a maximum of 500mA, a phone can require well in excess of 1Amp when in a call.

My phone seems dead although the computer connection and the fax are working. Help!

First try a new phone cord and a different phone. Are all items attached to one jack with one phone number? If you have multiple jacks, check if the phone works on another jack. If you have separate phone lines, check if the phone works on the computer/fax line. Check if the phone works without the other devices (particularly if daisy chained). Swap out all of the cables in the chain if it works directly.

In the multiple line case, if your phone works on one line and not the other, check if a phone works on that line at the incoming service. (If you are lucky, the incoming service has RJ-11 connections and you can test this yourself. Otherwise, you'll need a service person.) I've had several cases where mice or something broke one of two incoming phone lines outside so I just lost that one phone number. If the outside service doesn't work, call your phone company. They will fix it for free. If the outside service works, check your jack for loose wires. Check any exposed wiring in the house for damage. If the wiring isn't damaged in the exposed areas or at the jack, you'll probably need a service call (for a fee).

Checking the jack and wiring also applies if the phone works at one jack and not another.

If another phone works and the AT&T phone doesn't, check if the power adapter is plugged in and warm or cold. If the power brick is cold, then replace the power supply. The information on the type of power supply is usually listed on the bottom of the phone. Since this is a corded phone, it should work even without power, but sometimes, it won't. If the power is good to the phone, then replace the AT&T phone. Unless it's under warranty, it isn't worth getting them serviced. They aren't meant to be user serviced.

I hope this helps.

We have a panasonic cordless telephone # KX-TG5632. Yesterday, we were having some electrical work done and now that the power is back on, our corless phone does not work. There is power to the phone but...

Does the phone base receiver also have power? If so, then it sounds like a phone wire may have been cut. How extensive was this electrical work? If an electrician cut your phone wire by mistake they should take care of the problem at no charge.

To eliminate any problems with your cordless phone, try plugging in a standard phone where your cordless unit is to see if the line works.

The base of my philips VOIP 321 is not working, no power

Can you test if the power adapter is working? Most problems like this on other devices I have dealt with usually stem from either a faulty connector on the adapter or on the base unit.

Its often the power adapter that goes first. If you are under guarantee, get it changed.
