-We are in Israel and have a new telephone with base and handset with their own A/C adapters from the USA. -The base adapter says input 120v, 60hz, 9W and output 7.5v 400ma. The handset adapter says input 120v, 60hz, 2.5w and output 7.5v 150ma. -We have extra israeli adapters that each say input 220V 50hz (no mention of any watts) and output 9v 500ma.
-Do we care about the watts listed on the input? -Can the output of 9v be ok for something looking for 7.5v? What about the difference in ma's (what ever those are)? -Do you think the israeli adapters can replace the american ones?
I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.
Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.

Disconnect the AC adapter from the unit, wait for 5 seconds, then reconnect. The plug may have become loose over time or not be fully inserted. If that does not work, try re- registering the handset. To re-register, see screenshots attached.
Disconnect AC power adapter from the back/bottom of base unit, then connect it again properly.

To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone: Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds. Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard. When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset. Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.

Uniden TRU9485 (This didn’t work for me but this was the first instruction from Uniden Tech Support)
TO RESET THE BASE UNIT: Unplug the base unit AC adapter. Hold down for 15 seconds the DND, * and “menu” soft key (the middle silver soft key under the LCD) while plugging the base unit AC adapter back in. All the settings should be reset.
Uniden TRU9485 (Worked for me) ALTERNATE WAY TO RESET THE BASE UNIT:
Unplug the base unit AC adapter. Hold down for 15 seconds the DELETE KEY (zero with a line through it) while plugging base unit AC adapter back in. All the settings should be reset.
The handset has lost the link with the base. This link codes the handset to the base with a unique security code so others with the same phone cannot use your phone line.
If you changed the battery, try disconnecting the base telephone line and ac adapter for a while (1/2 hour or so if possible).
Remove the battery from the handset as well.
After 1/2 hour, install the battery in the handset, connect the telephone line and ac adapter to the base. Place the handset in the charging base and the link should be established. If not, the phone is defective.
Had same problem, answered AMOST completely by the owner's manual, which you can find here:
I recommend these steps in this order:
1. Try unplugging the base set for 30 seconds, then plugging it in again.
2. If that doesn't work, these steps come from the manual:
• Check both ends of the base telephone line cord.
• Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into the base and wall outlet.
• Disconnect the AC adapter for a few minutes, and then reconnect it.
• Remove the base ID (see "Replacing the Base Setting" on page 27) and register the handset
(see "Register the Handset to the Base" on page 50).
• Make sure that you are not too far from the base.
• If an outside call is already established, you can not be able to make another outside call.
3. If at any point you get the "Registration failed" message when inserting a phone into the cradle, try unplugging the base for 30 seconds again.
4. If your situation is like mine, you'll probably want to get new batteries, which is what started the whole problem.
This problem often results from a defective handset cord--check the handset cord by switching it with a good one. If that solves the problem, replace the cord. With a portable phone, substitute a transmitter from another telephone--replace if necessary.
