Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
The phone only rings about 1/2 ring and if you don't get it that fast, it's too late
SOURCE: phone not connecting
I am having the same problem. Had it last year, too but bought new batteries for all the handsets and that fixed the problem. However, this year I can't find the batteries anywhere!

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.
This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.
What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

I have a GE model 28112EE2-A DECT 6.0 with a similiar problem. I have had it for over a year and sometimes it won't ring but it flashes. What I did was unplugged the power for about 20 seconds and plugged it back in. Then it was fine. Hope that helps.

Well that is better than most people in finding the arrows...
Ok, first you need to know the extensions that you want to program to ring, and the lines, record these numbers... if you do not know the extension numbers and actual line numbers; going to each set, and doing a FEATURE * 0 and the Intercom and line buttons this will tell you the extension number and line number (this also tells you what is on every button).
Then goto your set and put in:
-> FEATURE 2 6 6 3 4 4
-> Password: 2 6 6 3 4 4
Now you will have to look at your LCD for 3 arrows
<- Back .......Next->
You will not see these words in the LCD display, you just have to look for the arrows that correspond.
-> you will now see “TERMINALS&SETS” and press Enter (the top right arrow key)
-> now put in the extn that you want to change (Eg. 227).
-> you should now see the extension number “227: NAME”
-> press Enter (the top right arrow key) again
-> you will now see “LINE ACCESS”
-> press ENTER
-> you will now see “LINE ASSIGNMENT”
-> and Enter
-> now you can type in the lines that you want to ring on this extension (Eg. 025 for line 5)
-> hit CHANGE till it says "APPR&RING" (Appear and ring means that the line will have a button on the set)
-> hit NEXT to save changes
-> press FIND to look for more lines and change the appropriate lines to appear and ring
-> then the RLS button (the little orange button) to exit programming.
After this programming is done, dial Feature * 0 and look for these new lines.
