Can only dial 9 or 1, 2-8 keys not working

Hi, We have a base unit w/handset and 3 additional handsets and for some reason they all will only allow us to dial the 9 and 1, but keys 2 - 8 will not dial. The handsets work fine to answer a call, but when we try to dial anything, we press the 2 - 8 keys and it just stays on the dial tone. The 9 and 1 keys do work because we accidentally called 911(trying to dial the number 961-1394), before we realized they were not working. Is there anything we can do? Thanks!!

Fixing the handset link to base unit of Panasonic KX-TG4500

After the base unit died I was able to restore power by switching out the power adapter of one of the handsets with the one on the base unit. However, when the power was restored to the base, none of the handsets that previously worked were getting a dial tone. I could only use the phone from the base unit. To fix the handsets I first reset the base unit by pressing the reset button with the tip of a pen on the bottom of the base phone then momentarily removed and reinstall the battery on each of the handsets to allow each to reset individually. In doing so, I got the dial tone back on all previously linked handsets without having to reregister them.

I bought 2 sets of the uniden DECT 1480-3. I want 6 handsets to work with one base. How do I add 3 handsets to a base that already has 3 handsets?

The only logical way is to get the additional handsets to communicate with the base. And to do that you must set them to the frequency of the base. You Use guide will tell you how to set the frequency n the handsets to talk to the base. They way you set the original ones.
BUT, I doubt if this will work. Why? Because if that was the case if you and I had the same company phones, then I would stand outside your home and set the same frequency on my handset and misuse your phone. A great security risk in today's world. But there is no harm trying it out. Just set the same frequency on the additional ones as the base. If it works, then you will have that many more intercoms too. And do let me know if it works.

Adding a new handset

You need to register the new handset with the base.
In Global settings De-register the new handset then place it on the main base unit connected. It should then register.

Uniden handset TCX905 with base unit TRU8866-if compatible?

I just successfully registered 4 TCX905s with my TRU8865 base - it's documented in the TCX905 manual.

Be sure the handset you want to register is fully charged.

Remove the handset you want to register from its charger.

Now unplug the AC for the main base, hold down the 'find handset' key on the base and plug the AC in again, when it beeps, you can let go of that button.

Hold down the '#' on the handset you want to register, it will show 'Registering Handset...' and when it beeps, it's done - registered, you're good to go :)

Handset ?No Link To Base? error and no dial tone

2/29 Have you registered or re-registered the handset?
"No link" can mean handset is not accepting radio wave of base unit. At Mfgr website pull-down operator's manual and look for registration instructions. Some sequence of buttons will create a radio signal from base (have handset off base) then another sequence of buttons on handset will accept radio signal. If handset has "menu" button, try "menu", then "00" (zero zero) then select an accept or "OK" button. Good luck.
