Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist with this issue today.

Sorry to hear of any issue with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) How many TOTAL cordless handsets do you have with this system, and if more than one, do ALL handsets have this issue?

2) WHERE exactly are you seeing the "Base no power" displayed?

5 hand sets. The two hand sets, one by my husband's chair. The other hand set is by my chair. The main base phone is in the kitchen. The verbiage "Base no power....Charging" is on the phone itself. The same area whitch alerts you of the phone number calling in. The main phone in the kitchen works fine and has no verbiage "Base no power....Charging"

We're on fix incomes and not on welfare so if this typing does not work we will just do without these two hand sets.

Hi again,

You may be seeing pop-up requests for a phone call or other "additional service".

As mentioned earlier, those requests are OPTIONAL and sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me).
Please DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.

Back to the issue(s) at hand.

It sounds like the handsets that are showing "base no power" MAY have become "UN-registered" from the main base. So let me send you the instructions for how to "re-register" the handsets and have you try that.

NOTE: Try to re-register ONE HANDSET AT A TIME.

The instructions are attached as an IMAGE, and you may need to click the link below to see that image.

Let me know if there is any trouble seeing or interpreting the instructions AND the results - when you can.

Thanks, ***** *****
