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!!

All of the handsets appear to have lost their
registration to the base and will need to
be first de-registered then re-registered.
It may be necessary to do this in three stages.
First be sure that all of the handset batteries
are fully charged.
Clear one of the handsets of its registration:
hold down both the [END] and [#] keys
at the same time until the display shows the
Since the handset is not recognized by its
base, select "Base Not Available".
Confirm the choice by selecting "Yes".
This handset will now display
"Handset Not Registered"
With "...Not Registered" displayed, place
the handset into the base unit cradle.
The handset should now dieplay
"Handset Registering"
After ~30 seconds the display should show
"Registration Complete" and will have a
handset unit number.
If the unit shows "Handset 1" (doubtful)
then just repeat steps 1 & 2 above for each
additional handset in turn. This can also be
the route if you do not care what the numbers
are and do not exceed the maximum count
for your system ( some are 4, 5, or even 12 ).
If the handset is a number other than 1 you
may want to clear the base & re-register
all of the handsets:
Using the now-registered and working handset
(number x), press both the [END] and [#] keys at the same time until the display shows the
This time, choose "Deregister HS" and the
System Reset Menu will prompt you to
select from the list of registered handsets
which one you want to deregister: choose
one that is NOT the one you have working.
Cycle around deleting them all until only the
one that is working is left: select that one and
the system will be ready to start re-registering
all handsets again from Handset #1.
Start at process (1) above, then (2).
Good Luck!!

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.

handset to "forget" the base unit.

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.

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.
