Question about Doro 530 Twin Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Main handset won't work; additional handsets do.

I bought a Doro 530+1 phone from a guy on eBay. It was the Doro 530 ONLY (that is, on the base of the phone, it says "530+1" but I only got the base). As well as this, it came with three additional handsets which are all the same - marked "DORO 1000 AHS" - (AHS = Additional HandSet??). Regardless of whether the additional handsets are in use, the main base unit's handset won't work. It shows a flashing aerial symbol on the handset screen, which suggests to me it's trying to find the base - only it never does. Yet despite this, all the additional handsets work flawlessly. How can I get the main handset to "connect with" the base so that it works? Thanks in advance! :)

Re: Main handset won't work; additional handsets do.

Check that you have the larger power adaptor connected to the base unit.

Is there a battery in at&t 530 handset?

The ATT 530 is not a cordless phone, so any suggestions related to base/handset are erroneous.

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.

The hand sets probably need to go through the 'registration' process with the base station. Look up the steps on how to do this in your manual.

One thing that the manual sometimes does not highlight clearly is that first you need to press and hold down a button on the main base station for a while until it beeps. Then you can go through the menu on the hand set to complete the registration process.

Programming old handsets to a new base

Cancel the old handsets registration at the previous base unit if desired.
For additional handsets, you must register each of them at the new base unit. Only one handset can be registered at a time. A handset will be assigned anextension number at registration.

Make sure the base unit and the other handsets are not being used. Program the same way as the extra handset you bought.

Registration must be completed within 1 minute.
