FRITZ!Fon's battery only holds a charge for a maximum of one day

Even if you fully charge the FRITZ!Fon's rechargeable battery, it only has a maximum runtime (standby time) of one day. The telephone must then be placed in the charging cradle or it switches off.

Simply proceed as described below. After each measure, check whether the problem is solved.

1 Installing the latest software

  1. Install the latest software on the telephone.

2 Charging the rechargeable battery

  1. Leave the telephone in the charging cradle for at least 6 hours to fully charge the rechargeable battery. Make sure that the "Charging battery" symbol appears on the display of the telephone.

3 Shutting off the display when hibernation mode is enabled

  1. Press the "Menu" key on the telephone.
  2. Scroll to "Settings" and press "OK".
  3. "Display" > "Hibernation"
  4. Enable the option "Display off".
  5. Click "OK" to save the setting.

4 Replacing the rechargeable battery

If the problem persists despite trying all of the measures given here, the telephone's rechargeable battery is defective. Replace the rechargeable battery:

You can purchase a genuine replacement battery from an electronics retailer. Using so-called aftermarket batteries that are not originals, like the kind available over the internet, may damage your FRITZ!Fon.

Important:Rechargeable batteries wear out because they are subject to a natural aging process as physical and chemical changes occur within the battery; this is why they are not covered by the warranty (see warranty in the manual).
