GE 25922 5.8 Ghz Gives Unavailable display and static discturbance

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I have GE 25922 5.8 Ghz phone I bought around 6 months ago, with no extra warranty purchase. There are two problems in it:
1. It gives unavailable when u switch it on, even if the base is connected all right. Sometimes when u disconnect power and phone cable from base and connect again, then it comes up all right. But after a few minutes try again, same unavailable message. What could be the reason? Can the phone be replaced by GE?
2. It gives static type disturbance while talking which makes it really hard to talk. This problem is very consistent unlike #1 above.

Really appreciate any feedback.

My answer:

Not sure why the first part of your Problem was all garbled up unless you were using HTML format??

Unfortunately I can relate totally to your GE cordless 5.8Ghz phone problem all too well.

Pleaseread everything below - even if it sounds unimportant. Once youdo youwill understand everything about cheaply made stuff sold here inthe USAtoday.

Had the very same experience with an almost identicalcordless phonesystem with the same everything features. Only it wascalled anOlympia. The Company is now defunct, as in OUT OF BUSINESS.Guess why?

All these cheap "throw-away" phones are made by thesame China Cooverseas under contract for various companies having USAbased roots.Everyone from AT&T to GE included! I've since boycottedGE for badwashing machine transmissions that were all made in China,and thatthey will not do a RECALL on! Why you ask? Because they don'tcare thatis why! Also boycotted GE for bad refrigerators,as well as SONY for their junk as well. If we just stop buying theseJUNK brands they will go away permanently!

WhenI contacted that Olympia CS Dept 800# theyfirst redirected me to aMOTOROLA "Fulfillment Center" somewhere, andthen to another one linkedto Giant Intl as in www.giantintl.com, as Iguess they handle complaintsfor all this cheap "branded" Made in Chinajunk we are now stuck with.Remember that name - for if you ever see itanywhere on the next thingyou are buying that is made in China - youmight want to walk away fromit like a bad plague!

Olympia sent me out3 FREE replacement phone set upgrades to replace myinitial bad 2.4Ghzsingle handset phone. Each one they sent me out as aFREE replacementupgrade was worse then the 1st.

The 1st one being a singlehandset with answering machine that had echoproblems and noise feedbackup the kazoo and then the digital displaywent out after only 2 monthsuse.

The 2nd one being a dual handset with answering machine that had the same echo effects and feedback problems.

The3rd one being a 5.8Ghz dual handset system with no answeringmachinethat sounded like a geared motor was running inside the phone,not tomention feedback as well.

After that the CS Dept said I was toast and nothing more could be done.

Sincemy first phone was FREE anyway - I figured what the heck I hadnothingto lose, and so that is why I tried to at least get 1 goodworking phoneout of the 3.

I wound up just stripping down the very 1storiginal 2.4Ghz phone forparts (ie: power adapter, good Ni-MH battpack, etc), and then did thesame with the 1st 2.4Ghz replacementphone set as well as the 3rd5.8Ghz phone set. So I wound up with a lotof nice AC adapters and 4more spare Ni-MH batts, and various other spare parts. I already found uses for 2 of those AC adapters btw!!

Ialso did a little investigating into that 2nd phone set - thatworkedsomewhat OK - and here's what I found out that was wrong withitinside. All I wanted to do is make the BEEP tone a bit louderbyopening up that small pin hole in the case cover. So I removed the2small screws in the batt compartment and carefully pried open the2handset body halves. What I found inside shocked me.

Instead ofthe antenna wire being pointed in the UP direction - so thatit wouldrest inside the handset's antenna nub on top - guess what? Itwas foldeddownwards alongside the IF circuit board thus causingfeedback inducednoise back to the phone base unit. NICE huh?

5-10 seconds and alittle bit of re-bending and VOILA - best receptionI ever had! Did thesame thing with the 2nd handset, as this was thephone system with 2handsets. I also opened up the answering machinebase and re-directedthe top antenna wire more upwards as well, as itwas laying way tooclose to the IF circuit-board as well.

What a difference thismade, and here the Private Label company thatmade them didn't evenrealize their error on what was probably millionsof these cheaply made"throw-away" phones! The other thing I hear thatgoes out on these"branded" cheap phones is the display, such as thatwhich happened on my1st replacement phone. Oh well - what do youexpect for $3?

Reason I say $3 -

Checkthis out below which I found onlineregarding your very same phone set -I know it'll make you cry, butthis is really what you are buyingQUALITY wise. A $3 phone set is all- Nice huh?

Super Hot Deal

1. CircuitCity.com is carrying this 5.8GHz Cordless Phone System for $59.99
2. During checkout, select in-store pickup option (required forthecoupon) and apply 20% off coupon code "PYAXCA7AG9" on it(Expires09/07/2008)

4. Your Final Price: $59.99 - 20% - $45 = $2.99

I have a GE 25922 5.6GHz cordless phone. It has 3 receiver. 1 of the receiver all ways says unavailble and it does not ring or can't call out. Can you help me with phone? Thank you, Sai.


UNAVAILABLE Indicates the handset is out of range. Or an additional handset is in use. Or there has been a base power failure, in which case you must place all handsets on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.

Handset can not link.
• If any handsets become inoperable, place it on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.
No dial tone
• Check or repeat installation steps
• Make sure the base power cord is connected to a working electrical outlet.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is connected to the base unit and the modular phone jack?
• Disconnect the base from the wall phone jack and connect another phone to the same jack. If there is no dial tone on the second phone, the problem might be your wiring or local service.
• The handset might be out of range of the base. Move closer to the base.
• Make sure the battery is properly charged (for 16 hours).
• Ensure the battery pack is installed correctly.
• Did the handset beep when you pressed the TALK/CALL BACK button? Did the in use indicator come on? The battery may need to be charged.

Please register


I charged my three brand new GE model 25922 for 24 hours, placed each handset in the main base to satisfy the "PLEASE REGISTER" message and the message remains. The only instruction in the manual as well as on the 800 448-0329 # is to place each handset in the base unit for 20 seconds.

AREA CODE


Just purchased the GE 25922 today. Looks like you can skip (ignore) the option to enter an area code.

United States' Area Codes are three-digit numbers. If the phone 'requires' entering a number you can use any three digit number. The purpose of this option is to display a local telephone number with only the 7 digits.

Example:
603 - 123 - 4567
'603' is the area code
123-4567 is the 7-digit local number.

If the area code option is programmed to '603', then if that number called '123-4567' would display on the Caller ID display.
Which now reminds me: you would need to also subscribe to Caller ID with the Telephone Company for the numberic display to occur.
