Handset won't work

I got a call, but when I picked the handset up from the cradle it beeped and this message came on the screen: Please lift up and try again I can't use any of the function keys (menu, speaker phone, etc) either. Tried unplugging it, taking battery out and putting it back in, looked in the manual, but can't fix it.

A handset button was pressed while the handset was
on the base unit or charger. Lift the handset and press
the button again.

Panasonic kx-ts880mx display not working, but when I pick the receiver then work


please power cycle the phone unit and check for the display screen when it's on the base again. If still having the issue, please attempt a factory reset of the device. Then, you can setup the phone just as you did when it was brand new. Otherwise, you might have to keep the receiver off of the display in order to allow the screen to show data as it used to.

Thank you.

Using Uniden digital answering machine with 2 phones. When I pick up either phone to make a call a message appears on the screen, "connecting". . Tried another phone ,line good.

Check if the base power adapter is warm to the touch. If it's cold, then the base has no power. Test if distance between the handsets and the base is an issue by moving closer to the base. Check for any radio interference. Check if the handsets are registered. You may need to de-register them first. Try unplugging the base (power and phone line cord) then remove the batteries from each handset. Wait at least 15 minutes before restoring the power/batteries. If the base has a charging cradle, place one handset in that cradle and wait a few minutes. See if that handset works. Otherwise, try to register one of the handsets and see if it works.

If the problem persists, then the base probably has a problem transmitting or receiving the signals from the handsets. Unless the system is under warranty (one year), you should replace the system. Otherwise, contact Uniden customer support.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the Uniden phone if you want directions for registering/de-registering the handsets.

Display screen shows "Will return soon" Would like

You need to cancel absent message on your phone. The method depends on which Panasonic phone system your phone is connected to. Following are the methods for three different Panasonic phone systems. Once you cancel absent message, your screen should return to date and time, if not then press * until it does.

KX-TA624 Phone System
Press intercom button, dial 750#, lift handset then return handset to cradle to end.

KX-TA1232 Phone System
Press intercom button, dial 7500, lift hanset then return hansdset to cradle to end.

KX-TDA100 or KX-TDA200 Phone Systems
Press intercom button, dial *7500, lift handset then return handset to cradle to end.

Cannot hear phone ringing in headset, only on handset.

The HL10 handset lifer is what notifies your headset that you have an incoming call. If you are using the handset lifter and are not receiving the 3 short beeps in your ear piece there are a couple different things that could be going on.
1. The internal microphone could have gone out on the lifter. This microphone is what sends the signal to your headset that you have an incoming call. If the microphone is working you will hear 3 short beeps in your headset.
2. If the volume is too low on your telephone, the handset lifter will not notify the headset of an incoming call, so try turning the volume up on your phone and see if that takes care of the problem.
3. The HL10 handset lifter ships with a ring detector that has a 2.5mm jack on one end and a small round microphone on the other end. This ring detector is intended for phones that do not have the speaker located under the handset. You could try plugging this into the back of the lifter and setting the microphone next to where the lifter is mounted on your phone. This might help pick up the sound of the phones ring tone.

If you are manually lifting your handset out of the cradle and sitting it to the side instead of using a lifter, then you will not receive the 3 short beeps in your earpiece to notify you of an incoming call.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!


My phone is stuck on speakerphone. When I pick up...

There are two things to check that you can fix. First, try replacing the handset (curly) cord. A broken wire in the cord can make this happen. If that's not it, watch the hookswitch. That's the plunger that goes down when you put the handset in the cradle, and pops back up when you lift the handset. If it's stuck down, you will only get speaker and no sound in/out of the handset.

I cannot use the cordless part of my panasonic KX-TC1221BXB. The following message is shown ''No link to base. Place on cradle and try again'' But even after placing back on the cradle, the same message is...

I couldn't find the exact manual for your phone but I would try to re-register the phone. Following are some instructions for similar models of your phone.

*To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone:
  • Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds.
  • Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard.
  • When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
  • Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
If this fails to help: Remove the AC Adapter from the phone base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

Good luck!

Cannot answer phone when it rings

when you lift the handset from the cradle try pressing the line number button on the handset or answer button on the handset.

No dialling tone - just a beeping sound

It sounds like the handset is not 'registered' to the base station/cradle. Solution may be in the user handbook, which you should be able to download at :
