    Hi all,

    My base unit appears to have packed up. reading through the web this
    looks like a common problem with these boxes. Has anyone ever managed
    to repair one?
    The problem is the phone won't register with the base. I've done all
    the factory resets on base and phone and also used the phone to
    register with a different base unit which works OK.
    It's difficult to know what is or isn't happening.
    I don't have any receivers that go up to 2GHz to monitor the base's
    output so I don't know whether it's an RF problem or something in the
    logic that's gone wrong.
    As I've said the reset does what it says it should do and the PAGE
    button also, above that without being able to connect to it via a phone
    what else can you do? Catch 22!

    Cheers
    Bob

    Have you got a standard old analogue Sky box laying around? That's a
    receiver that goes up beyond 2GHz without an LNB connected. If the handset
    registers ok with another base, then both its tx and rx and coding and
    decoding circuitry, are working correctly, which puts the problem with the
    base.

    Trouble is with these third generation DECT phones, the RF circuitry tends
    to be in sealed ' blocks ' , and the whole shebang is controlled by
    processors at either end, which need to whisper to each other to set the
    link up. Unlike in the old days of the first and second generation analogue
    phones, in general, there's unfortunately not a lot you can do to get to the
    bottom of problems.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I was thinking it was going to be a bin job. Shame really but that's
    modern technology for you I suppose.
