Question about Dual Maxus 5.8GHz Handset Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Wired base unit

The remote base works fine...charges hand-set appropriately.  However, the wired/land-line base seems to have a short in it or something.   It no longer charges the hand-set, and the light blinks all the time.  Sometimes if I bounce the hand-set up and down a few times, it seems to make a connection and occasionally will charge.  Is it time to buy a new phone?  The Radio Shack guy was totally uncooperative and offered no solution.  I bought the phone in January of 2005.  Should I just replace it?

Try a simple thing, replace the phone cord that goes from the wall to the phone with a new one. That'll make sure you still have a good phone connection. Cords cheap.

You have a power transformer that plugs into the wall.  See if you can find a replacement at a surplus store or Radio Shack (a different store)  Take the old one with you so you can match the voltage/ampere and connector.  If its new it will work fine.  If its surplus, it's hit or miss.

If that does not work  or you don't want to bother buy as new phone.  With the constant upgrades you might find one with better features you'll like more.  Who knows.

Good luck

    OK...try cleaning the contacts on both the phone and the charger. And now that I realize you bought the phone in 2005, replace the rechargeable batteries in the handset.

Display shows "No line"

The base set has to be connected to the land line. It's telling you:
  • No land line connected
  • The land line is not working
  • The base set is connected to a bad land line outlet.

I bought a new AT&T 2300 to go with my existing 2365 base and 3 2300 handsets. When I place the new 2300 in the base, after charging it, nothing happens no matter how long I leave the new 2300 in the...

possible that the new hand sets are not compatible with the base as it requires same hand sets as the base for the base to be able to register the handsets
follow the user manual to see if there is a how to register section that will help identify the problem

I have a KX TG2356 cordless, when I hang up the hand set, the battery will not recharge, why? I got out an old KX-TG2258 and put the hand set on it and it IS charging, but I can use that with my current...

typical fault is bad or no connection between charging terminals and hand set charging terminals...try to clean them using emery cloth or fine sand paper....sometimes even though the contacts look clean they still have bad connections because of an oxide layer that builds up....that oxide layer can easily be taken off with a light sanding......if that doesn't work, then have your hand set checked for internal open solder lines or regulator circuitry faults that regulates power feed to the battery to monitor charging status...
good luck

Double check that the telephone cord is firmly plugged into the back of the cordless phone base, the wall outlet, the outlet where the telephone modem is and at the L1/L2 jack on the back of the telephone modem. Your phone is not getting the dial tone line voltage from the telephone modem to the cordless base. There might be a short in the wiring. (It is unclear as to whether you are setting an old phone into this new base or swapping out and using another base with the old phone. Irregardless, the problem would seem to be not in the phone but ratther narrowed to the cord between phone modem and phone base. That is a very good reason to check how firmly the cord is plugged in.

Start removing wires from the amp, one by one (except for the +12V, Ground, and remote) until the amp seems to work fine. Usually, this type of issue is due to a speaker wire shorting to something it shouldn't be touching. Check the "non-amp" end of all the wiring to make sure they are solid and correct.
