The handset on my Panasonic 900 MHz cordless phone decided that it would quit working. I tried to persuade it to work again by buying a new EXPENSIVE battery. But it had a mind of its own; deciding that it couldn't be fixed that cheap. It was only 13 months old so I decided to seek help. The knowledgable folks at Panasonic knew right away that it only needed a new battery. I explained that it already had one, and that the battery had full voltage (I measured it). They explained that a fully charged battery wouldn't necessarily make the handset work. Interesting. How novel... That's good. I like that.
Let me see now. If I want this phone fixed, where do I go?
For a mere $80 (it had been $140) I now have my phone back. It's working (with either the old or new battery!). And no, nobody I've talked to can explain how the battery charging system functions in this particular phone. Even the "authorized" repair shop sends this phone to Panasonic for repair. Isn't proprietary information great?
I was told by Panasonic that lots of people have this problem...
I'm thinking...well...you know
