Top 20 Vtech Cordless 6041 Phone - Page 8 Questions & Answers

Please download this manual, and study e.g on page 21 About caller ID If you subscribe to caller ID service from your local telephone company, this feature displays the name and telephone number of the caller before answering a call (even when you are on another call). The caller ID features of this product will work only if you subscribe to caller ID service and both you and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment. Contact your local telephone company if: • you have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may need combined service), • you have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service, • you do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services but wish to try them. There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas. This product can be used without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting service, although the caller ID features of this product will not function.

The issue here in "most caases not all is the battery is at its prime" i would first buy a new battery let it charge for 20 hours!! then try reregistering the headset. if that does not work or reregister then you know now you got a bad transmitter radio inside. Try all reset methods as well even before you spend $12 bucks on a battery pack. Chances are its the battery, worse comes to worse the headset needs to be replaced.

thanks this was a FREE solution please do be considerate and rate and leave postive feedback thanks.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

As this is an issue with all the handsets, it seems very unlikely that all the sets are at fault. Make sure they are not close to TV, Refrigerator, Oven or any electronic item that emits frequency waves.

The first step would be to call service provider and get the lines checked.Sometimes, it could be the filter used for the phones.This has to be taken care by the service provider.

You could do a small reset from your side :-

If the unit does not seem to be responding normally, then try putting the handset in its telephone base. If it does not seem to respond, do the following (in the order listed):
1. Disconnect the power to the telephone base.
2. Disconnect the handset battery, and spare battery, if applicable.
3. Wait a few minutes.
4. Connect power to the telephone base.
5. Re-install the battery(ies).
6. Wait for the handset to re-establish its link with the telephone base.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I wonder if your handset's battery is low. It is normally set to beep on that condition. On page #9 of its user guide you can find instructions on how to change such settings. If you happen to miss it, you can download it from this location.

Hope you are able to sort your problems out.

How do I unmute my VTecH telephone ringer and intercom?

Vtech Cordless... | 1,776 views | 8 helpful votes

These phones look at the voltage on the line to determine if the line is in use.

Do you have any devices on the line that get power from the phone line? If so, they may be loading down the phone line causing this issue. If you have these types of devices on your line, try disconnecting those devices and see if the problem goes away.

Otherwise, your phone line may be defective. You may need to contact your phone company to get the problem resolved.

I think once you change it you record over the one that comes with the phone. If I lived where you live I'd come make a generic recording for you but maybe you can find a neighbor or friend? Those old messages are so boring. You need some class. Check these out.

1. A is for academics, B is for beer. One of those is the reason we're not here, so leave a message.

2. Hi! I am probablyi home. I'm avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message and if I don't call back, it's you.

3. If you're a burglar, then we're at home cleaning our weapons right now and can't answer the phone. Otherwise, we probably aren't home and it is safe to leave us a message.

4. Hi this is John:
If you are the phone company, I already sent the money.
If you are my parents, please send money.
If you are my financial aid institution, you didn't lend me enough money
If you are my friends, you owe me money
If you are male, don't worry, I have plenty of money.

Well finished searching the manual and their site. According to their manual this phone system doesn't have an answering machine but is capable of accessing voice mail if your phone service carrier provides it.

This is from the manual. This phone doesn't have answering machine it just accesses the voicemail your local telephone company provides.

The clear voicemail
feature only turns
off the displayed
message and
on the telephone
base. It does not
delete your voicemail
message(s). Use
this feature when the
telephone indicates
there is voicemail
when you have none
or you have accessed
your voicemail from a
remote location (while
away from home). If
there is actually a new
voicemail message,
your local telephone
company will continue
to send a signal
which will cause the
message in the
handset and the
telephone base
VOICEMAIL light to

You need not dial your area code within your code.
You can change the number of digits dialed, in this case seven digits, from the call log.
Press menu/select; Press up/dn to select call log; Then press menu/select; When in call log press up/dn to scroll through the records. All incoming calls are displayed on the screen. Although the call log entries you receive have ten digits, you only need to dial seven digits (within your zone). This is where you change the number of digits you dial within your zone. While reviewing the call log, press # repeatedly to display these dialing options.
Do you have a user guide for the ds 3111? if you do this info is on page 29. If you do not have a user guide you can download one for free at the following link;

Let me know if this solves you problem.
