Is the base to your phone on? That’ll make your phone think it is out of range. Next, make sure the phone is placed in the base for at least 5 minutes to reset its connection to the base, and then try placing a call after. If the problem still persists, there could be other signals messing up the connection. Check to see if there are any other cordless phones or ham radios around, and try turning them off. After that your phone should be able to connect.

I did all of the above instructions and it did not work. I drove off 2 days ago with phone away from the house and when I returned to put phone back on the base, it said "out of range or no power at base". Batteries are working in phone and the base lights up.

I had the same problem with my phone. First, make sure it's plugged in, if not, then it's obviously not going to work. But if it is plugged in, unplug it and wait a few minutes, then plug it back in. I found that my phone was actually unplugged. I plugged it back in and it is working now. So the first thing you should do before unplugging the phone, is make sure it is actually plugged in already.
