Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.
What is the specific icon you are seeing?
Please unplug power to your Modem, for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Replug, wait 5 more for it to start back up, and see how it works from there.
Can you please describe the icon you're seeing?
Are you able to receive incoming calls?
That is a signal indicator,
does it show on all of the handsets, even if close to the main base station?
Do you have any other phones or a fax there, separate from the panasonic system?
Thanks for the info,
This symptom can indicate either a problem with the line (phone company equipment or the wiring in your home) OR a hardware failure in the base station. 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.
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, and let me know the results, please.
