Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.
Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and 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 MOTOROLA system, and of more than one, do ALL handsets have this same message displayed?
2) Is it possible that there were ANY "weather" or "power events" - while you were gone?
3) When you connected the Panasonic phone, did you connect it to the exact same phone jack as the Motorola MAIN base unit?
Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.
NOTE: If you see ANY requests for "additional services" - such as a phone call - please understand that these are sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me), and I may NOT be available by phone at the moment of that request.
Feel free to DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.
