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.

This symptom indicates 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. This is also common to see just from normal age related wear and tear - this system is already well past its service life at this point.

The one thing you may attempt yourself is to fully reset the system:
1) unplug both power and phone lines from the main base.
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.

Thanks, ***** ***** your conclusion is right on about failure in the base unit due to either age or power surge from the hurricane.Thanks
Leon

Ah I didn't realize you were in hurricane territory, that would certainly make sense.

the reset is worth a try though, if no change, it would be time to replace the system. I can recommend some replacement models for you, if needed.
