Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Mark. This symptom indicates a hardware failure in the base station (since the issue happens with all handsets), meaning a failed radio transceiver. We most often see this type of damage to the base unit as the result of a power surge, either through the phone or power lines. This isn't surprising to see from normal age related wear and tear either, on a 7 year old model (2009 system), which is now well past its service life. The one thing you may attempt yourself is to fully reset the system:1) unplug both power and phone lines from the main base.2) remove batteries from all handsets3) wait at least 15 minutes, then restore all4) place a handset on the main base for a minute, as if to charge5) check for functionality. If the problem persists after this, it tends to confirm a hardware failure which would require repairs to correct. Unfortunately once the 1 year warranty is up, repairs are not practical, and the base alone cannot be replaced. The most economical option in this case is to replace the entire system: http://amzn.to/1UoM7pq
