Question about Philips VOIP8411B/37 IP Phone

1 Answer

It won't charge the rechargeable batteries anymore

At first I thought the rechargeable batteries were out of charges.
I bought replacement rechargeable batteries but the charger base station will not charge the handset anymore.

I cleaned the metal contacts on the base of the handset and the base station in case it was dirt that was preventing the handset from being charged.

Does anyone else know what the problem might be?

    The transformmer breaks after a year you need to replace the adapter - the phone and base are fine just the plus is broken

I have the same problem , the only logical reason i could think of is that the charger connecting to the base station has malfunctioned .

What is the problem with my cisco 7921 phone it has a blank screen

Does the phone power on at all? If you hold down the red button on the front it should power on. If it is not powering on, either your battery is dead (needs a charge) or your battery or phone may be defective. Try plugging in the the power supply and then turning the phone on to see if it powers on.

Battery not charing

Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

The base unit for my Philips VOIP3212S is not charging the phone I need to buy a replacement base unit. I put ordinary batteries in the phone and the base unit no longer works

Wilson - The phone was not made to use regular (AAA) batteries. Unless you install AAA NIMH rechargeables it will not work. Regular AAA batteries cannot be charged by the base unit.
In case you meant AAA NIMH batteries as "ordinary batteries" then your charger may be the problem, but I wouldn't assume that until I've taken a pencil eraser and vigorously cleaned the base contacts and tried the base again (with the right batteries.)
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

Hi, I bought a SMC WSKP100 phone for skype today. After charging the battery, I picked it up and accidently touched a button which has put the language into something I have no ides what country it is...

After hours of frustration (as we all know with gadgets & technology) and searching the net for help, I got onto Fixya.

One of the experts & I went through some things then I thought "put it back to default."
Brilliant - how do you do this??
In the mean time, I had turned the phone off

Wait for it ------- turned the phone back on and - yes you guessed it - back to English default !!!!!!!!

So there you have it - when all else fails - turn the ----- thing off and start again !!!!!
Or get onto Fixya.

My phone will not charge

It sounds like the battery is a goner but I wouldn't swear to it without having another to test it. Over the course of the last month or so, did you notice that the battery life was shorter and shorter? It will look like it is charging but holds no charge whatsoever upon removal from the charging base. The best way to test this, of course, is to install a new battery. Finally, is this an older phone or a new one? Rechargeable batteries are good for about 2 years, less if you don't let it fully discharge and recharge although in the newer types it's not as much of a problem. Let me know what you find out.

Chargimng phone

If you are sure that you changed the battery for a good one, and charger too, then is a broken charger connector in phone side. You need to take it to a service shop and have it re-soldered.

Uniden Win 1200

I had the same problem, but good thing I bought three of them. The first one worked right out of the box, the second one wouldn't come up for about two days and the third one took several days before it would turn itself on. My opinion is that the batteries are really flat from being on the shelf for so long before they are sold and have "memorized" that condition.

I went to the Uniden site and their FAQ don't really address much about this product, wish they would expand it somewhat.

Good luck and keep on trying to charge the batteries.
