We've been having this problem for a while. I used to think the hand-held needed charging. But just today I tried pushing all the plugs firmly into the back of the base. It turned out that the main power pin, on the back right, had been pried loose which must be a problem with being gradually turned in its socket and rotating against a cuff which wedges it loose. This seems to easy and obvious a fix but both hand helds have stopped reporting out of range -after they reajusted them selves to the base.

Cordless phone is not working...It shows out of range but the landline is working. Calls can only be attended through landline.Please let me know the solution as soon as possible. Thank you.

out of range means-- too far from the base set
that is normally around 30 ft
if the battery in the handset in use is not fully charged it is even less or if there are steel walls or thick walls between the hand set and the base set then the message will show up

Magicjack problems

If the telephones work without MagicJack connected, you have your answer. BUT, the "no power at base" message means just that. Find out why and fix it. The loss of dial tone may be because the telephone system detected a problem and disconnected service until it is resolved.

I have a maytag range model number CHE9830BCE that is giving me an error message F-2

F2 on a Maytag range is a bad temperature sensor.
Remove the oven racks. Turn off the power to the range. Remove the temperature sensor from the back wall of the oven and replace it with a new sensor.
The sensor is held in by a screw,it is metal about 3 inches long and silver in color.

Out of range

Unplug it - take battery out of hand held unit - for several minuets..

Put it back and power up..

If issue still there - there is a channel selector on the hand held unit.. Try changing channels..

If the battery is week in hand held this could happen.. These batteries last around a year +/-.. You can get a replacement online,, WalMart,, Radio Shack..

There could also be interference in the area..

Have a great day !

I cannot answer calls - the base has the message "answer off"

The phone apparently fixed itself. After not working correctly for a couple of days, this morning it was functioning like it was 3 days ago. I get a dial tone, and the caller ID works. I have no idea why.

I have a model dect2035 .88012717..onthe handset it is reading hand set is out of range /searching . the phone is 2 weeks old thanks

1. Press message/MUTE (bottom of handset). The system announces the number of new and old messages, then it starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

2. Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

3. Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

4. When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.
