Phone is charged but is continuosly losing power.
Unless the phone is showing any malfunction we cannot confirm unless a drain test is taken in the standby condition of the phone.This must be quite negligible current about few mAmps . If there drains is more check for leak in the battery source to the IC feed, a possible zener shorting or a capacitor leaking.
However if the phone is using up power on talk time , it can be due to drain in a functioning circuit which will be hard to find , but check for unusual heating in any components.
If however the phone works fine then it can be the fault of the battery itself as it could have developed reverse polarity.
Let the battery drain off fully and recharge, if possible a jump charging with an external voltage might sometimes cure this issue.
If not change the battery with the correct current rating.

Phone says OUT OF RANGE while on the base and won't work.
The handset has lost the link with the base. This link codes the handset to the base with a unique security code so others with the same phone cannot use your phone line.
If you changed the battery, try disconnecting the base telephone line and ac adapter for a while (1/2 hour or so if possible).
Remove the battery from the handset as well.
After 1/2 hour, install the battery in the handset, connect the telephone line and ac adapter to the base. Place the handset in the charging base and the link should be established. If not, the phone is defective.

27998GE6-C phone and buttons stick
The buttons got "sticky stuff" on the conductor pads. There is not much you can do unless you open the handset which I do not recommend unless you really know what you are doing.
If you do, or, are foolish or brave, open the handset, remove the rubber button pad and wipe the circuit board with rubbing alcohol. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER SOLVENTS.

You need to reconnect this phone with the "base". If more than one charger came with this set, only one of them is the base. This would be the one connected to the phone line.
Please place it back in the charger that is the base or home unit.
If you have lost your manual, I will provide an onlink link shortly!
