Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Do you have any other phones here, other than the panasonic system?

Yes, I"m here. Please only reply once though, otherwise you get pushed down the queue each time and it takes even longer for me to get them.

We really need to be able to test another phone on one of the lines to isolate the issue further,

Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

This symptom can indicate either a problem with the line (phone company equipment or the wiring in your home) OR a hardware failure in the base station (since the issue happens with all handsets). We most often see this type of damage to the base unit as the result of a power surge, either through the phone or power lines.

The one thing you may attempt yourself is to fully reset the system:
1) unplug both power and phone lines from the main base (be sure to remove the battery as well)
2) remove batteries from all handsets
3) wait at least 15 minutes, then restore all
4) place a handset on the main base for a minute, as if to charge
5) check for functionality.

Let me know the results, and I'll advise further if needed.
