Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) How many TOTAL cordless handsets do you have with this system?
2) What phone service provider (phone company) you have for this phone line?
3) If you have ANY other devices (phones, fax, alarm system, etc.) attached to this same phone line (not part of the MAIN system), and if so, are they working properly?

4) When you say "The talking caller ID was working before. Looks like an x ", does that mean that the DISPLAY of the handset(s) is not only showing an X - instead of the proper caller ID?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1) 3 head sets with this system,
2) My phone service provider for the phone is Verizon
3) There are no other devices attached to the same phone line
4) Maybe the symbol x= is not appropriate but a symbol is showing in front of "find name"
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again and thanks for that information.

OK - may I ask if you still have the Operating Instructions (manual) for this system?

If so, can you take a quick look at pages 15 & 16 and see if the symbol is shown in the "Item/Meaning" table(s) on those pages?

If you don't have that manual, just let me know and I may be able to show those symbols/tables here, or even send you an electronic version of the manual.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately I did not have the manual. Please send the pages to me,
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again,

I have a link to the electronic (PDF) version of the manual for you below. Please try this link to get the manual on your computer.

You MAY have to highlight the entire link and right-click to OPEN the manual OR SAVE it to your computer.

In the mean time, I will grab those tables (as images) and post them here.


Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again,

I didn't see a response from my last post, but I have the tables attached below - as images. You may have to click on the file names to see the images.

Please take a look and let me know if ANY of the symbols shown look like what you are seeing.

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

I looked for the symbol in the manual; however, to no avail. I will go to Staples and see if the phone could need just a battery.
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again,

Were you able to get the manual I sent?

If so, there are other icons on page 10 - that show the different BATTERY LEVELS. And one at towards the bottom of that list shows what could be interpreted as an "X".

Also, you may not need to go to Staples specifically, as the batteries may be a bit expensive there - when compared to other stores (such as department or electronics stores). But if that is the closest most convenient place to go, by all means try it.

Just remember to charge up the NEW batteries for a few hours before you TEST if that helps. And make sure you get the same TYPE of batteries (rechargeable Ni-MH) of the same capacity or a bit more.

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

And if this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for helping you with this question.
You should see some "smiley faces" or "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them.

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