Question about Panasonic KX-TG5422M Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Line in Use

After I hung up from a phone call, I went to put the phone on the base and noticed "Line in Use" on the display. The telephone is "technically" off; however; it's not. I called it using my cell phone and it rings busy. I have unplugged and plugged in just about everything possible and I've taken the batteries out of both handsets and put them back in. Nothing is helping. So - I'm hoping you can. Thanks.

Why no dialing tone


no dialing tone indicates an open line or an extension that has not been hung up properly. IF you have a corded phone then it may be in the cord (broken at the hand piece or at the base) On the technical side it may be from the wires in are not paired properly ( go google and check for phone line pairing) and on the financial side the account has not been paid

Phone won't hang up, stays on the line even after hitting 'OFF' button


We recommend you test the main base unit with a different telephone cord on a different telephone jack.

Caller display doesn't work


From the BT website...

"If you are using your phone on a broadband line make sure you fit an ADSL microfilter between the telephone line cord and the telephone socket."
I'm guessing you have one on the landline, probably next to the router but not the handset base :-)

Phone not working


Hi Pam,
Try these..1...remove your telephone line from base unit and fix it into a working land phone and check whether is it having normal dial tone.If it's having engage tone(beep beep...)remove paralleled phones and re connect to cordless base unit.
2.If line is ok (normal dial tone with full volume) & still display indicates line is busy, your main base unit must be having faulty components inside.Commonly these defects happen in thundering or surges through telephone lines.You have to take full set to a repair shop.
Rana.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...


Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.

TIP: IF REGISTRATION FAILED, REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

The caller id on my vtech cordless phone stopped coming in clearly, why?


Try unplugging your base station (where the power and the telephone cable plugs into) leaving it unplugged, get your telephone set and take out the battery.

Put the battery back in your phone and power up your phone.
When the phone is back up and running, plug everything back into the base station... and test your caller id.

The telephone's base station sometimes needs a reboot. There are power spikes on the telephone line every-so-often and can do funny things to your telephone set.

I hope this helps.

My Uniden DECT 6.0 has a line open. I have hung them all up plus I have disconnected batteries and tried to reset the phone that way but it still says there is a line open. HELP. Thank you. PaulaC


Turned out the problem was the modem on the computer needed resetting and it had nothing to do with the phone. I get internet, phone service and t.v. all in a bundle and something went haywire.

One one ring tone with incoming call..........


Make sure the ringer is on .
• Make sure the telephone line cord and power adapter are plugged in properly .
• The cordless handset may be too far from the telephone base. Move it closer to the telephone
base.
• There may be too many extension telephones on the telephone line to allow all of them to ring
simultaneously. Try unplugging some of them.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring
or local service. Contact the local telephone company (charges may apply).
• Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless telephone. Try installing your
telephone as far away as possible from the following electronic devices: wireless routers, radios,
radio towers, pager towers, cellular telephones, digital telephones, intercoms, room monitors,
televisions, VCRs, personal computers, kitchen appliances, and other cordless telephones.
• Test a working telephone at the telephone jack. If another telephone has the same problem, the
problem is in the telephone jack. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
• The telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new telephone line cord.
• Remove and re-insert the battery and place the cordless handset in the telephone base.
• Wait for the cordless handset to synchronize with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute
for this to take place.

Caller ID Problem on the GE2811 Twin cordless phone system


How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes. reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in.
It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
