Danger using older telephone.
I have an older Panasonic phone. there is a burnt wire on the line cord. It shut off all the phones in the house. I found that the handset was warm, then I found the burnt wire. I bought a new battery, and a new cord. the people at the store told me it wasn't safe to use the phone anymore as it could blow up and cause a fire. Is this true, or do they just want to sell me a new phone?I e-mailed Panasonic, but they don't answer. I love this phone plus it has my answering machine on it. Anybody know about this?
