Question about Vtech Cordless 6041 Phone

1 Answer

The Vtech phone has continued to flash on and off with no dial tone and no trouble shooting resolve in the manual. Doesn't matter if I unplug the power source or the jack or take out the battery for a few minutes or press the find handset button...nothing works to rest this phone. Very annoying. Please help me so I can use my phone again. Thanks a bunch!

SOURCE: Not Registered

I had the same problem and this procedure fixes it! First, unplug the power to the main base (answering machine) for 20 seconds. Plus it back in. Put the phone that says "not registered" in the main answering machine. It will say "press the find handset for 4 seconds". Do that. It will run thru a series of stuff and will find the handset. It works! Rich (jambones.com)

SOURCE: Problems with C110 & A110 Vtech Mirage Dect Home phones

Have strangely got the same problem - about the same time you posted this, but intermitently. I have isolated that the problem is in fact the handset itself, not the base unit. I eliminated a problem with the base unit by a) registering a different DECT phone to it. - The base still works fine. b) Leaving the handset switched off for an hour or so (press and hold the "OK" botton to switch off / on); then whislt it was working, registering the handset to a different base (Base 2). And guess what, after 30 mins the "BASE 2" message started flashing on the faulty handset.
So, if you already have an A110 extension handset, make sure it's also registered to base 1 and maybe try to get just the handset repaired via VTECH. (or just buy a new handset if they are available).

SOURCE: no dial tone

I would contact your phone provider. It could be a coinceidence that the dial tone stopped working.
DSL does not require dial tone to work.

My Vtech cs5121 cordless phone has no dial tone


Vtech phones are junk! I have had many trouble calls for no dial tone,only to find out the Vtech phone is the only one they have,and it is defective.(It really DOES pain me to bill someone 91 dollars to tell them their 21 dollar phone is broken-always try another(preferably hard-wired) phone before calling the phone company!

No dial tone


  • First, try to check every telephone line is properly plugged into its phone jack. If you have a problem with just one phone, plug a different phone into that jack. If the second phone works, the problem lies in the first phone.
  • Then unplug each phone and answering machine in your house, one at a time. Wait 30 seconds after unplugging the first device. Pick up another phone to see if there's a dial tone -- if there is, then the first phone may be faulty. If not, continue unplugging phones in the same way and check for dial tone. If you find a phone that doesn't work, plug all your other phones back in and see if they work properly. The faulty phone should be replaced.
  • or disconnect the plug from the test jack inside the exterior box. This disconnects your inside wiring from phone company's line. If you have more than one line, select the test jack for the line that is causing the problem. Plug your phone into the jack; this plugs you directly into the phone company's line. If you have a cable modem, plug the phone directly into the jack on the modem.
  • Then pick up the phone receiver to see if there's a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, the problem is with your outside wiring. If there is a dial tone, the trouble is caused by your inside wiring, equipment or jacks.
  • Hope it will help you. Thanks for using FixYa.

    I unplugged vtech tel to move to another location-now i have CL flashing and none of the phones have dial tone-how do i fix-thank you very much for your help


    The main unit with the answering machine needs to be plugged into and outlet and also plugged into a working phone jack. The other units just plug into an outlet and speak to the main unit wirelessly. Make sure the main unit is plugged into a phone jack.

    Dial Tone but won't call out.


    I just had the same problem. Try unplugging the plug from the electrical outlet for the home(base) unit and plugging back in. Fixed my problem right away.
