In a dry climate, and you if you wear a rubber soled shoes, and when you walk on carpet to your cordless phone you will build up a static charge. When as you pick up your phone this static charge will discharge through the phone as you touch it.
The fix, avoid building a static charge by walking around without wearing shoes or move the phone to a location where there is no carpet.

    That's not a fix, that's prevention. Is there a fix?

Garbage disposal electrical shock.


Are you sure it wasn't a static electric shock, rather than AC? If you live in a dry climate, or in a cold climate without a humidifier, and you may have walked across a carpet, it could have been a spark of static electricity. Especially if it hasn't reoccured.

Control panel shocks


This is a common occurrence as we enter the dry season. Static electricity will build up as you walk/run on your machine. There are many factors which make the problem more or less evident - the type of walking belt and deck, design of the treadmill, type of walking shoes, etc.

Some treadmills have a grounding wire from the console to the frame of the treadmill as well as a grounding wire from the rear roller to the frame of the treadmill. Check to see if these are in place, or have a qualified technician check this.

One common solution is simply to add a humidifier to the room where the treadmill is located. Raising the humidity will greatly reduce the static shock problem

#1. No link to base. #2. Short distance usage.


That sucks. I have a Panasonic cordless 5.8 ghz set that is probably 3 years old and I have not had any of the problems you are complaining about. You might be getting interference from a wireless router or even a baby monitor. Is the phone near a wireless router? Most of the newer phones automatically select the channel with the least interference. Try moving the main base to another room there is obviously something causing interference with that phone.

Try powercycling the basephone and remove the battery from the cordless phone, wait for 10 sec and then reconnect the battery, after that connect the power to base phone,probably it will fix the issue.if your phone have the option to change the channel,try changing the channel to 11 or 6.try and get it fixed.

try a corded phone and unplug your cordless. see if that helps. If not go outside to your power meter and near it you should see a box labeled telephone. open it and you "should" see a spot to plug in a corded phone. you first have to unplug the little cord thats already in it then plug in you phone. If no static, then prob is in your house wiring or in a defective old jack or possibly another device plugged into your phone line (computer, answering machine, caller ID box, etc. ) .
If you do have static while outside & plugged into the "test jack" , then prob is in the phone companies regulated facilities and they will come out and fix no charge to you.
