Have you ever had a case where you''re dying to figure out why you
can't get something to work any more? I have two V-Tech cordless
phones, both of which are in that category. The charging light blinks
continuously (on BOTH phones) but no dial tone. So I replaced the
battery on ONE phone; did the reset thing; still no dial tone. (using
a phone line that tests OK on other phones)
Refuse to invest in another battery for the 2nd phone until I know for
certain that's the kicker.
The position of the battery contacts prevent taking a voltage
measurement. However, your suggestion did trigger a thought that
perhaps the battery wasn't pressing securely on the contacts. So on
top of the battery I folded a small strip of toiler paper (symbolizing
my feeling toward the annoyances). thereby forcing the battery to
press more securely. VOILA! The phone is now operational!!!
THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO KEEP ME ON TASK !!!

The phone could be broken. I have a set of 3 V-tech phones and bases
and chargers which someone sold me for 1 or 2 dollars. All I hoped to
get was one phone and two base stations. I forget the details but if
I had gotten that, I'd be using them now.
Is V-tech thought to be a good brand. My only experience is with
these 3 broken ones.
re: Is V-tech thought to be a good brand.
Bought a 4-handset package a year ago. No complaints yet.
BTW - Best Buy charged the same price for the 3-handset package as
BJ's charged for the 4-handset package - Buy 3, get 1 free!

I don't know how old these are.
Good to know. OTOH Best Buy charges 20 dollars for a 2 Gig Sandisk
flashdrive, and every place else seems to charge 25 to 30. Don't know
This one comes with some special flashdrive software, u3, that I don't
understand, but it allows one to run software right off the flashdrive
with no installation to the computer. If I get it working it would be
good to take my pictures and a slideshow program when I visit family
out of town. 2 gig has plenty of room. I unzipped the file that
was in there, but I don't have XP so I can't test any further.
