Power went off last night and our phone stopped working
The base unit's Flash/Speaker button keeps on flashing every 2 seconds. Nothing on the display. Actually the display panel on the base shows "Uniden" which also keeps on flashing every 2 seconds. None of the buttons work. Tried putting in battery in the base compartment, but the same result. If I keep the handphone in base cradle, the handset buttons lit up; however the "charging" LED doesn't blink. Something got short? Is ther e any easy fix?

This happened last night on my new-to-me JVC SR-MV55. Even powering it off for five minutes didn't help. It apparently crashed during dubbing (couldn't create more than 9 chapter codes?).
Manual suggested holding down Stop and Power after powering it down. But no matter how long I held Power it wouldn't stop flashing. But I tried Stop/Powwer for a bit, nothing seemed to happen, then maybe 15 seconds later it restarted "WAKE UP'".

I could tell the base unit was about to go a few days ago. Have had the phone for years with intermittent problems but it has been for quite awhile now. However, the screen on the unit started to blink a bit a few days ago. Had a feeling it was about to go but the phone kept working until this morning when it suddenly dies. After reading that changeing the cord might work, I replace the unit power cord with one from my handset and the phone is working again! Thanks for the suggestion!
The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base
also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.
the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the
base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset.

handsets are inhibited from connecting.

reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the
