Hello & Welcome,

If you are referring to one of the "handsets" of the phone system not working, the first thing I would do to troubleshoot this issue is to swap the batteries from one of the working handsets into the one that is not working. Try to keep track of which battery is which and see if the problem follows the battery, or the phone.

You should probably make sure each of these handsets is recharged for a couple of hours before testing, but that should be enough to tell you if the battery is the problem or the handset.

Please let me know what you find, or if you have more questions.

Take Care, Greg A.
