indicates a registration issue or flat battery

A higher capacity battery should work even better because a fully charged 900 mAh battery allows the phone to operate 50% longer than a 600 mAh battery between charges. I have had good results with Rayovac Recharge Plus 900 mAh in my Philips SE450. This phone will latch and not operate upon ringing if it doesn't like its batteries (probably high internal resistance), even though the batteries test good on a battery tester.

The phone was probably short-circuited when it got wet. Plugging it in could cause a fire. It most likely is time to buy a new one. Sorry.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Press the c/Mute button (Has a tape logo on it) It should say either TAD ON or TAD OFF - presumably yours says TAD OFF!! Press number 8 to switch between TAD ON & TAD OFF.... If Answer is on, you'll hear a double beep and the orange message light will come on.

The message left has to be longer than 3 seconds...Not sure what brilliant mind came up with this since "Hey, it's me, call me back as soon as you can!" is less than three seconds and could be urgent, but that's their rules.

If you've tested it with longer messages, please let me know!
