BT 8500 remote handset won't ring

Base hand set rings as normal. Remote handset won't ring. Been through all the settings and troubleshooting information, no joy.

I am NOT GOING TO PAY 60p PER MINUTE FOR "out of warranty technical help".

Can anyone help with this?

Have you tried turning off the power to the base unit for about a minute?

Yes. Not sure whether that solved it or not. It's now working as per normal!

It usually fixes it.

Sometimes the base to handset communications link locks up, and the base unit need to be restarted.
