Question about GE 26938GE1 Cordless Phone
Our handset went dead, it appears that when seating the handset in the base, the charging light will not go on. If you move the handset around slightly, we have seen the charging light flicker, but not stay on. We have cleaned the base and the handset, but we still cannot get a charge. I tried a new battery and the handset will work with another charged battery.
Tips for a great answer:
You may need to reset your handset in the following instances:
You lose a handset and purchase a new one. When you try and register to your existing base you get registration
You are unable to register any handsets to the base.
You had a base which needed to be exchanged by the manufacturer. When you register your existing handsets
to the base, the handsets say #3 and #4, but you only have 2 handsets.
When you are instructed to by the one of the manufacturer's call center representatives.
