Handsets do not appear to be charging - message 'base'

Customer Question

Hi Moira. Welcome to justanswer.

None of the handsets are being charged by the base unit?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Main and first handset OK - second handset was showing empty battery symbol and screen has now gone blank and does not ring when dialled. Is it the base or the handset?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

When you put the second handset on the base, does it do anything?

And you are saying that the first handset is working fine with the base, right?

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

Have you tried replacing the batteries of the handset.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No, I'll try replacing handset battery. (It doesn't charge when I swap the bases)
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

Most probably the batteries have gone bad. Try replacing them and check if it works again or not.

Let me know how things turn out so that I can provide you necessary assistance
