    I have the same problem of the phone saying it is connecting and never does. I first noticed the problem after I received a call late on 11/20. That call came through ok so I assume the connecting problem started after that. ?? Any ideas? MB

    Our phones all say connecting and when you remove from the charger they say to put it back in, then they will say charging for awhile then back to connecting. The main phone is the only one that is usable now. We removed the battery of one and then put it back in to see if it would reset or something but nothing changed. I put one next to the main one to see if it would help - nada.

    I have tried disconnecting the batteries and reconnecting.



    I have tried disconnecting the batteries to all units but one.



    I have bought new batteries and have installed it in handset number one, which is the only one that has a battery in it.



    None of these things has had any effect.



    The problem remains.

    I have no other extensions- however, phone shows that extension in use and won't allow me to make or receive a call. I have disconnected the phone, but to no avail.

    While deleting a call from the call log, the phone displayed the message "connecting." All the phones now have this message and do not work. I tried disconnecting the battery but when I plugged it back in, the message was still there.

I had exact same problem. I tried changing battery but it did not work. Finally, i removed the power and phone line to the base and reconnected after 5 minutes and all the handsets started working.

Answering machine has an "a" and will not record incoming phone calls when we are not at home.


Your machine is set to the announce mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but does not record incoming messages. You want to switch it to the record mode. Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech system I can't tell you exactly how to do that. I can direct you to enter the model number into the search box here to download a copy of the manual.
