Question about Panasonic Lands Phones

Open Question

I have a Panasonic cordless phone with the base unit model # KX-TG1034S. There is a rapid blinking red answer on light that won't turn off. Answering machine doesn't work. How do I solve this?

We had a recent partial power outage that affected other residents on the block. The electric company came back and turned the power off for one hour and also for an additional 10 minutes. When you want to stop the rapidly blinking answer on red light of the base unit, you have to turn the wall switch off and then turn it back on. When you do that, both the red message light and the red answer on light blink very slowly at the same time. Every time I press something, the base unit goes into that rapid flashing mode of the answer on light. Is there any possibility of returning the phone to normal? I have three other handsets. People call and the answering machine never kicks in. I've already tried to reset the phone but to no avail.

SOURCE: digtal answering machine not working.

I don't know yet if this is a resolution, but I'm going to try this tonight. Unplug all bases and remove all batteries from all handsets -- leave this overnight.

Here's the history of my problem. I rec'd this phone for my birthday. 3 weeks in, power went off in my building and answering machine part stopped working. I took it back to the store, and they gave me a new one. 4 weeks in, another power outage and I have the same problem. I called Panasonic, and they told me to unplug all bases and remove the batteries in the handsets for 'a few minutes' to reset the units. I waiting 10 minutes, and replaced all batteries and plugged in all the bases again. No luck, answering machine still did not work. I noticed, however that the phone did not reset as I still had all my phone numbers and caller id history.

I called my brother who is an electrician, and he advised me that the base has a 'capacitor(sp?)' and it will probably take a few hours for it to 'drain' so the phone will reset itself. His suggestion is to unplug all the bases, remove all the batteries and leave everything OVERNIGHT. By that time, the power store in the base should hopefully be wiped out and the phone should reset like new. I will try this tonight and let you know if this works.

Frigidaire CPEF3081MFC - Clock and timer run fast [gaining approx. 10 mins per hour]. Everything else, including temperature, functions normally.

If the power outage was as a result of a power surge it is likely that
the components were affected in some way, they may need diagnosing and repair or replacement.
There are many reports of electronic devices going wrong after
a power cut...the outages are , seemingly responsible for a lot of damage. If this is the case I would look at whether there is a mechanism for claiming reparatory compensation from the power company you are signed to

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.

Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!

This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

AC trips circuit breaker not long after a recent power outage.

Sounds like your compressor is shorted to ground. If you are able, unhook compressor, wrap wires and restart. If breaker doesn't trip than u know.

A recent power outage seems to have clogged my icemaker. partially formed ice cubes are jammed in the mold and the arm stop arm will not go down.

Hello. I can assist you. Turn off the freezer at the dial and use a blow dryer to heat the ice and melt it. Then use towels to remove the water and dry all of the surfaces. FInally, spray some PAM cooking spray on the surfaces to act as a lubricant. Turn the freezer dial back to where it was and you will be up and running again in a few hours.

Unplug the set from the wall for about a minute. Plug it back in and see if it comes back on. If the problem still persists then you have a shutdown condition, meaning a short or missing voltage.
You will need to call a technician to diagnose the source of your problem. If other appliances in the house were affected you may have a claim with your home owners insurance. Good luck

Partial Power Outage

This could be very dangerous.

I would first call your electric company and ask if they have any problems with their lines, etc. We recently had this problem at our home and it was in their circuits.

My mother in law had a similar problem and we caught it in time. In her house, several outlets showed extremely low voltage and the others showed extremely high voltage.

It turned out to be a bad neutral connection on the line going from the pole to the house. The electric company fixed it at no charge.

Also, you or someone you know should measure the voltages coming out of your outlets, or call an electrician right away.

You may have a loose circuit breaker or a bad connection somewhere your electrical panel or elsewhere in your neutral line.

This can lead to destruction of your appliances or even a fire, so please don't delay.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
