This likely is problem with the phone and the base being on two seperate radio fequencies.
Please post the manufacturer and model number and we should be able to give you a procedure to get them both on the same frequency.
Also, is there any other reason that you believe the battery will not charge? Is there some indicator or light saying that the phone needs to be charged?
