Telephone Help Needed Please?

  tburchell 16:58 28 Nov 2008

A friend of mine has a Binatone Telephone and Answer machine (Combo) SC3410 plus a Motorola ME4067. Both of these phones are DECT. The problem is, a "beep" keeps appearing after only a few minutes of talking which then cuts the call off. This happens on both telephones, but more on the Binatone model. Can anyone throw any light as to why this is happening and what can be done about it? Only a suggestion, but could they in some way be interfering with each other? Any help would be most appreciated. Kind Regards, Tim.

He should try them one at a time. Power off one of them, then on the other dial 2 to break dial tone. Listen for the beep.

Is there no battery condition indicator? My DECT phones have three black dots in the corner for full charge, and they disappear one by one as the batteries run down.

the instruction manual, interference from other things, check cables and wires of the base units.

Id say batteries.If the phones have been in position for some time i cant see it being interference.

Sounds like the batteries to me.
Mine give a beep every few minutes if the batteries are low and the handset isn't on the charger when not in use. If the handset is being used it beeps a bit more often and will eventually cut off.
