  1. Does anyone know if the handset volume on a Panasonic KX-TCM937-B
    900MHz "Cordless Answering System" can be adjusted?

    I received this phone/answering machine combo as a hand-me-down from a
    friend who was leaving the country a few years back. It worked well
    for a few years, but lately the handset volume has gotten so low that
    I have trouble understanding what people are saying to me.

    I thought the problem was probably a worn-out rechargeable battery, so
    I bought a new battery and let it charge overnight. But this morning,
    the volume level in the earpiece of the handset is as low as ever :(

    I found a PDF of the manual for this phone, but can't seem to find any
    reference to adjusting the handset volume (the PDF is not searchable)
    and due to chronic health problems my poor old brain has trouble
    processing information that I read on computer screens these days.

    I'd be grateful if someone could tell me if there's a way to increase
    the volume in the handset earpiece.

  2. I was afraid of that. I wonder why the volume level has dropped off
    so drastically.
    No, not lately. But the last time I did have it checked they told me
    I had the hearing of a 14-year-old.

    The the handset volume in one of my corded phones is so loud that I
    have to hold the phone away from my ear because it is so loud that
    it's painful to my ear. And I sometimes wish my hearing weren't quite
    so good, because I don't sleep so well these days and even the
    smallest sound, like the creaking floor in the apartment above me, can
    wake me up.

    So, since it's not the battery. What else might cause the volume
    level in the earpiece of a cordless handset to drop to drastically.
    The people on the other end tell me that they have no trouble hearing
    me, so the microphone seems to be working ok.
