Customer Question
Just installed a new...

Just installed a new Panasonic phone....the batteries are now charging...should there be a light on, on the base?

Technician's Assistant: What Panasonic model do you have?

KX-TG7871C

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Panasonic phone? What have you tried so far?

This phone was purchased a few years ago, but this is the first time I opened the box

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

My other Panasonic phone kept telling me that I had no link to base

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Is the entire system new? Or you had the system but are adding additional handsets?
