Vtech vt 2420 handset not finding base station

Hello, I just received a replacement vt 2420 handset.
After charging the battery, the unit is Searching for Base.
I have a 4 handset system.
I took the battery out of one of the working handsets.
I entered the base station I.D. from the bottom of the base station unit
into the new handset.
The new handset is still searching.
I unpluged the base station. Waited a few minutes and plugged it in.
The three working handsets beeped and found the base station.
The new one did not.
The only thing I can think of is the base station is the box for the base station indicates it is a 2421 system.
However, I'm sure that at least one of the working handsets is a 2420.
The new handset is a 2420.
Thank you for your help.

Is this a second hand set? If so you need to sync it with the base to use it every time it loses power from the batteries. Put it on the main base for 30m seconds and try it again.

SOURCE: Searching for base and battery loses power too soon

Have the batteries been changed since the system was purchased... 4 years is a fairly good usage for batteries in that type of use.
Good news you should have no trouble buying replacement batteries... even walmart has them. Open the back of one of the phones... the battery has a small plug.. pull that out and you will see the part number... about 25 dollars each battery pack... cheaper if you are in the states.
One note tho... when you replace the battery pack you need to charge it for at least 12 hours prior to the first usage 24 hours even better.

Bought a used vtech 5.8 phone, charged the battery and now see message "not registered. I can not make calls... how do I register it?


I believe it is telling you it is not registered with the Base Unit. You did get the Base Unit with it didn't you, otherwise you have a paperweight.

If you do have a set then this is the answer

Tip 1 of 1
Step 1: Place the handset in the base or charger. If PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and recradle it in the base or charger.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for approximately four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while, the handset will emit a series of tones, and the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

Uniden dwx207


When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.

If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.

Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.

If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.

I hope this helps.

Have gigaset 2420, two base stations and 8 handsets all thru house, I am trying to register handsets to base stations after moving around to new areas, have de-registered handsets and base stations and now...


You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones MORE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR ALL YOUR ELECTRONICS When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656


To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

1. Take out the handset that sits on the base.
2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.
4. Hold down PAGE key for 5 seconds. When the In Use light begins to flash, release the PAGE key.
5. The handset charging light will blink 5 times. Within 5 seconds from when it stops blinking, press PAGE once.

You must register the handset(s) by following the steps below:

1. After charging the handset, remove it from the cradle, the LCD display will read "SEARCHING FOR BASE".
2. Press "NEW" and then enter the 15-digit Base ID code, located on the underside of the VT2656 base unit.
3. Press "OK". The handset will display "PLEASE WAIT!!".
4. Wait approximately 15 seconds. The handset will display "FOUND BASE". If the handset displays "BASE BUSY TRY LATER", this indicates that the system is in use. Wait until the base unit is in the idle (on hook) mode and repeat steps 2-4.

How to I reset the base for a Vtech VT-2431


This worked for me after lots of digging....If you have already tryed reregistering your handsets and can only get two-or three to work try this and deregister them and re-register. If your base model number is vt2431: Take the handset out of the base, press **335782 on the dial pad of the base. (do not have the line active or anything , just put the (2) stars and 335782 in (no spaces) on the base unit. This will de-register all of the handsets at one time. Then just re-register the handsets...
