Do you hear tones when you press the buttons to dial?Many phones have the option to dial by pulses instead of tones. Make sure your phone is set to tones.

If you need the remote access code for the answering system, then the original (default) access code is given in the manual on page 50 (page 53 of the PDF) and on 55 (page 58 of the PDF). See the manual online at . Unfortunately, if the remote access code has been changed, the default code will not work. As far as I know there is no way to reset the SL82318 remote access code to the factory default remotely. See page 50 of the manual to reset the phone's access code when you are using the handset. When you use the handset and start to change the code, the current remote access code will be announced first.

Any voice mail system would be accessed using the phone number and codes from your telephone service provider. This information will not correspond to the answering system of the SL82318.

I hope this helps.

Reverse the polarity of the phone wires.

-Some phones are sensitive to this; others do not seem to mind.

I believe you should reverse the red and green.

Check your ground wire where the phone line comes into the junction box outside your house. It is either loose or corroded. It should be clean and clamped to a ground stake or water pipe like for an outdoor hose faucet. Check both ends of the wire. Without it, the phone system's impedance is so high that it will receive the 60 Hz hum from any electrical appliances around the house that are within a few feet of a line on an extension phone, answering machine or even an extension phone outlet wire running through a wall. These make great receiving antennas. good luck.

1st you can download the PDF instruction manual online for free for most products. I'm sure this is one you can find.
Next: I've had a similar problem with my system an (AT&T Dect 6.0).
If I disconnect each battery and plug them back in it usually works.
The there is always resetting the whole system.
Using the PDF you can see how to un-pair all the phones then re pair them making sure you pair the one that says Handset #1 first and so on, if you want them to stay in the order they are in now.
That's what we do because each one of us are used to having each phone.
One of these two methods should solve your problem.
Also, if neither Idea works - youtube has helpful videos on most anything but I suspect one of these Idea's will work.
I've only had to un-pair them when one got broken and I wanted them back in the order they were in.
Usually unplugging and re plugging each of the batteries works.
I don't know what kicks that off but it happens to me once or twice a year. I use Magic Jack and I also have them routed through another PC (that's not on line) witch has (Phone Tray Free), an app that can block calls and show ID on the big Screen and a few more tricks along with a Web cam surveillance system I have running all the time, so in my case it makes some sense it would get screwed up from time to time.
For me, It usually happens when someone picks up the phone before the caller ID can come up or a call comes in and hangs up before the caller ID can see the info.

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've pulled up the user manual for your phone. Thank you for providing the phone make and model first, and the complete description of your issue!

The manual says the battery should be charged for 15 hours before first use.

You may be set to pulse dialing , even though the factory default is for tone dialing. If you push the 7 key, you would hear 7 pulses or clicks in succession. The dial tone will be gone once a pulse has been received. And you say there are clicks heard and no dial tone.

You can set Handset settings (Page 12 in the PDF copy) and customize how your phone works.

Hit MENU and use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to scroll to the desired feature., this time called DIAL TYPE, then his SELECT. Looks like the sixth menu entry from the top after LANGUAGE.

It should read:

If it says something else, perhaps PULSE, use those arrow keys again to change the Dial Type to Tone. Then use OFF to back out of the selection and again to clear the menu.

Attached is the link to the manual. Click the button on the screen to "Open as PDF" and you can open it in your PDF reader software or save it to your device for offline reading.

If you still have access to the old base you can de-register the handset by following a simple process. You will have to de-register all handsets registered to that base.
  • Make sure that all handsets are out of the telephone
base and chargers before you begin deregistration.
  • Press and hold /HANDSET LOCATOR on the telephone
base for about 10 seconds (until the IN USE light starts to
flash), then release the /HANDSET LOCATOR button.
  • Immediately press /HANDSET LOCATOR while the
IN USE light is still flashing. (The light flashes for about
seven seconds. If the light stops flashing, start again with Step 1.)
  • It takes up to 10 seconds to complete the deregistration process. Wait

Western Electric, Lucent... whatever...
