Re: Base station and units all say 'searching'
You may need to register your handset to the base.
Normally ,there is a advanced setting ,register handset. At the same time, press and hold "page" key on your base 4 to 5 second , there is be a registation success tone from handset. You can register all of your handset ,one by one. Some model need to input register code, normally ,it is 1234 , or 0000.

When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.
If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.
Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.
If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.
Simple answer yes they are compatable I just did it as I could not find any CD445 handsets.The manuals are downloadable from Phillips just search for CD445 or CD245 manual.Just press speaker button on 445 base for 5 seconds untill it beeps twice,then on new 245 handset menu/ register enter default code 0000 and bingo its live. Oddly the newer handset bases are 9v and not compatable with 445 bases which are 6v and have different contacts so you cant sit your 245 in the old base.My new 245 came with a new base anyway so no problem.
I am afraid this is a sign that the internal board of the main base unit is either corrupted or rusted. i would highly suggest for you to take it to an electronic shop to get it repaired as no further solutions can be given on line.
Yes, and no.
When you buy the new corded base station (CL84109) with 1 handset, that
base unit by default is "paired" with only the 1 cordless handset that
came with it.
While you can plug both base stations into the landline wall plugs
(RJ-11), and when the line rings, both base unit phones will ring and
will each operate as independent corded phones would.
But, in this scenario, the cordless phones communicate only through the
base unit they are Paired with. The cordless phone paired with the
CL84109 corded base unit will not be able to transfer or Intercom
between the cordless phones paired with the CL82409 base unit.
However, if you want to transfer the cordless phones that originally
came with the CL82409 base unit to work directly with the CL84109 corded
base unit, you can likely "Pair" them to work directly with the CL84109
corded base unit for a total of 5 cordless phones to be paired to the
CL84109 base unit.
Consult the User Guide that came with the CL84109 base unit for
instructions on how to Pair additional cordless phoned to this base
The CL84109 can be expanded and paired with up to 12 cordless phones. So, this should be do-able.
Keeping in mind that the CL82409 will no longer have any phones paired
to it and will thus be useless from that point on. (unless you pair more
expansion cordless phones to it again)
There is no link between your cordless set and the base station, hence the message.
I would do what SpencerR stated, try to re-establish the connection via the base station to accept the handsets again.
Have the cordless sets worked before?
It may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless sets, and take out the batteries in the cordless set. Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, and re-install the batteries.
Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link to the cordless sets.
