Telstra Voice Control Cordless Phone TVC-C

I have set up the TVC-C phone with base and also the additional handset TVC-A x2.  All are working fine but I find the display goes black until I lift the handset again so light up the standby mode.  I can only see a setting for backlight 3 mins.  Is there any way of the handset remaining lit so you can see the date and time etc rather than a black screen.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Press any button?


It is designed like that so the screen lighting doesn't drain the battery. If the phone rings, the screen will light up.


You are wanting to use the handset as a clock?
