    First make sure you are using the Rechargeable batteries that came with the unit. The correct part number is HHR-4DPA. Try charging the handset on the base charger. If that works, make sure the charging cradle is connected to the AC Adaptor, and the AC Adaptor is firmly plugged into the wall. Have you taken the batteries out of the handset recently. This will reset the battery indicator, so even though the batteries may be fully charged, the indicator will show low battery. Place the handset on the charging cradle for 7 hours to show full battery. Also, be sure the batteries are inserted properly. The '+' terminal should be showing at the top of the right battery and the bottom of the left battery.
  • What can I do if liquid or other form of moisture has entered the handset/base unit?

  • What should I do if my base unit does not have power and there are no lights lit?
    If your base unit is not receiving power ensure you are using the correct AC adapter for the base unit. If the problem persists then you can try plugging it into a different power outlet to test. For units with multiple handsets, you can use the AC adapter from one of the smaller chargers and plug into the base to test.

Please refer to your operating instructions warranty page for details.
