My KX-TGF340 stopped and...

My KX-TGF340 stopped and says check telline and the phone is recharging. I have been sure the connections at the base station are secure. I phoned that number and an operator cut in to say the lines are busy. Instructions on line are almost nonexistant

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?

I do not have a smart phone I have a panasonic land line

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

I put what I have tried before in the initial message. I just noticed this morning. Did not check last night. Was working the night before for sure

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

I am not using a smoart phone. I am using a panasonic desk phone with two other receivers in the house I placed a $5 deposit earlier today

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please remove the power to the base unit and the batteries from the handset
Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power to the base unit, put the batteries in the handset and tell me if it then functions correctly.
Please let me know the results
Thank you

medicom. I phoned them mainly to be sure there was not a local problem. Apparently not but they cut me off and I have a cell phone for emergency out calls only.

Can you clarify what you mean with

"Apparently not but they cut me off "

Cut you off from what?

Got far enough to tell you no problem with either

Would it be wise to just buy a new base station. That might be the cheapest way to go

One thing I still need to know, what is the phone connecting to for a signal?

A powered router box?

Where does the phone line from the base unit go?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
probably

ok.. can you confirm? It is important to know as if thats the issue there is no point buying a new base unit.

Follow the cable from the base unit and see where it goes

Hey Hey Hooray the phones are working again. I should have tried the pulling of electric cord at the beginning because over the years that has solved almost all problems for all kinds of computer/attachment problems. Happy new year to you and hope it is warm wherever you are. It is 36 here which is uncommonly warm.Thanks again.
