Question about Uniden TRU8885 Digital Answering Machine
It holds a charge and then when you turn on the power to the handset it reads HS1 CONNECTING then it does nothing and it reads" Register Handset by putting it on the main base"........after 100 attempts to do so and no results and not being able to get thru to Uniden during their buisness hours ...you are my last and only hope of having a phone that works.I'm so frustrated! Can you please help me?
Here it is step-by-step:
1. Remove battery
2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it’s workable)
3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.
4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok
5. Remove battery (yes again)
6. Reinsert battery (this time there’s no need to hold down any buttons)
7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)
8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

For a Uniden DCT 646 use the select key rather than the right soft menu button to reset the EEPROM. However, that was not necessary.
To force the phone into registration mode first deregister as described in the manual (Menu>System Reset>Deregister>select handset>Yes)
Next Replace the base (Menu>System Reset>Replacing Base>Yes) The phone will immediately go into registration.
Place on new (or old) base and phone will register.
I was able to transfer phone numbers from phones on one base to phones on another base using this method and the Copy Phone Book option as the phone numbers were not erased when the phone was deregistered.
