Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Display on handset does not display any info!

I have a GE Model 28128 Series 6.0 Cell Fusion telephone.
One of the handsets, #2 does not display any number's or any info on the display panel, but will allow you to make calls. However, since the number cannot be seen, or any info should we receive a call, can create problems. What could be wrong with the display on the handset?

The display could be bad or the didplay driver could be bad or it could be a simple wiring problem if you're lucky. Try pressing around the edges of the display to see if anything appears (press firmly but not so hard as to break anything). If you are mechanically inclined, open up the handset and connect the battery so the handset works. Normally the display is connected to the phone circuit board by a ribbon cable and frequently there is a tiny "edge card connector". If present, make sure the connector is plugged in completely. Watching the display, try pressing on the ribbon cable where it attaches to the display and to the circuit board. If anything appears, keep trying to isolate the problem.

I recently had this same problem with a Sony handset but I was not able to find anything as I just described and I ended up replacing the handset with a new one of the same model. Good places to look for a replacement are eBay and Amazon.

Handset display says "Connecting" I can't deregister. How can I get the handset to display "not registered"?


The procedures to deregister are, of course, specific
to each make and model number of cordless phone.
All of them are a LOT more involved than simply
removing the battery.

For some AT&T, VTech, Uniden, & GE model numbers
you might try the following:
=====================================
For many AT&T models it is simple:
1. When the handset says "Connecting..."
enter *331734 [menu]
it will soon (chirp) and display "Not registered"
=====================================
For many VTech models it is a bit more involved:
1. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover.
2. press [menu]
3. scroll up/down to "Settings"
4. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
5. if display reads "Test Base",
scroll to "Test Handset", press [select]
scroll to "next page", press [select]
6. scroll to "Register Clear?", press [select]
7. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??",
press [select]
8. display reads "Ok" (chirps), press [ off ]

9. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY
(this is why the cover is off)
10. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery &
replace the cover
11. display reads "Not Registered"
=====================================
For many Uniden models:
1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the
same time, after a few seconds the display reads
2. "System Reset, Deregister Handset"
3. scroll to "... Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT]
4. Handset (chirps)
press [END]
5. display reads "Not Registered, Place in base..." =====================================
For some GE models:
1. press "program[mute]"
2. scroll to "Handset Setup" press "program[mute]"
3. scroll to "Deregistration" press "program[mute]"
4. scroll to "Yes" press "program[mute]"
5. display reads "Not Registered"

=====================================
Once you have the handset displaying "Not Registered"
you can follow the User's Manual instructions to register
the handset.

The model number for your cordless phone is shown on
a small sticker underneath the battery in the handset --
enter this number at www.manualslib.com to get a free
copy of the User's Manual if you need it.

Good luck!

HandsetS #2 and #3 work properly. Handset #1 has a display screen with correct datet and time -- but no dial tone, How can I fix this?


This sounds like Handset #1 has lost its "registration" with
the base. De-registering & re-registering is often easy.

First, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a
weak battery will interfere with the registration process.
Then try this ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, & similar):

To deregister the handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

Next, to re-register the handset:

2. Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
within ~30 seconds the handset should display
a "Handset #" and be good to go.

Good luck!

I am trying to replace a handeset on my E5640 answering system. I have followed the procedures to deregister the existing handsets but it will not accept the base code for the last one. The handset I am...


  • Your telephone can accommodate up to four cordless handsets. You can add new handsets (Model E560-2, sold separately) at any time, but each must be registered with the base before use.
  • The handset provided with your telephone is automatically registered as Handset 1.
  • Additional handsets will be assigned numbers in the order they are registered (2, 3 or 4). You can register a maximum of four handsets.
To de-register all handsets
• Unplug the power supply from the base unit.
• Remove all handsets from the charge cradles and base.
• Plug in the power supply while pressing and holding the HANDSET LOCATOR button.
• Continue pressing HANDSET LOCATOR until the IN USE and CHARGING indicators are lit (this could take up to 10 seconds).
• Release the HANDSET LOCATOR button.
• All handsets will display: ENTER BASE ID: XXXXXXXXXX
Once the base indicators turn off (up to 30 seconds), the handsets have been de-registered from the base, and can now be re-registered.

To re-register a handset:
• Make sure your handset batteries are properly installed and charged.
• Your handset will display "ENTER BASE ID".
• Enter the 15-digit Base ID number from the bottom of the base unit.
• Press SELECT to accept the new code and complete re-registration.

To re-register a handset to a new base unit:
• Make sure your handset batteries are properly installed and charged.
• Unplug the old base unit. Your handset will display "SEARCHING...".
• Install the new base unit by plugging it into an electrical outlet and phone jack.
• Press and hold the SELECT key until the handset displays "ENTER BASE ID".
• Enter the new 15-digit Base ID number from the bottom of the new base unit.
• Press SELECT to accept the new code and complete re-registration. The handset is now registered to the new base.

I would assume this could have been a product that was returned to the company that you purchased it from. Follow these instructions. 1. 1. Disconnect power from the base by pulling the plug out of the back of the unit. 2. Press and hold the Page button and while holding the Page button reconnect the power. 3. Continue to hold the Page button until the charge/in use light flashes rapidly. 4. Release the Page button. 5. Press and release the page button on the base once. All handsets are de-registered and HANDSET NEEDS REGISTRATION shows in the display. Then From the Handset Setup Menu: 1. Press the caller ID-volume ( 6 or 5) button to scroll to the REGISTRATION sub-menu. 2. Press the mute/program button to enter the menu. REGISTRATION 1YES 42NO - - -shows in the display. The default setting is 2NO. 3. Use the touch-tone pad to select 1 for YES or 2 for NO. Or use the caller ID-volume ( 6 or 5) button to scroll to 1YES or 2NO. 4. If you select YES, press the mute/program button. HOLD BASE PAGE FOR 5 SECONDS, THEN PRESS HANDSET PROGRAM shows in the display. (Your handset should be held near the base during registration process.) 5. Press and hold the page button on the base unit until the charge/in use indicator flashes. Press the handset mute/program button. REGISTERING shows in the display. HANDSET X REGISTERED shows in the handset display, where X is the handset number. You may now rename your handset. (Refer to Step 3 & 4 of Handset Name Section) NOTE: IF you are re-registering the handset through the handset menu; to rename your handset you must go to the Handset Name Section and start from the beginning step. I understand that you have tried the registation process. Sometimes with electronics, you have to start from ground 0, before it will work correct again. If there are further questions or comments, please post here. Please rate this solutn through fix-it. Thank you
