Re: adding new expansion handset
You will need to register it to your base station before it will work. You do so by holding down the registration/page key on the bottom of your base for a couple of seconds, and then grab your SL30 and push Menu, scroll down to the option of Handset settings, press OK, then scroll to "registration" and push OK, select base station 1, press OK, then enter the default pin of 0000 and press ok. Repeat these steps if first not successful. You can download a manual for free on our website at www.cordlessrepair.com

The handset should be returned to the charging station, let it set for a few seconds. If this is a satellite phone, make sure the main phone "base unit" is connected to phone outlet and plugged in. After the phone has established its physical connection with the base again you can remove it and use it like normal.
On the base, open the menu and select Register Handset. The display should say Handset Registering. On the handset you want to register, press and hold # until the handset display says Handset Registering (about 2 seconds). 1. 2. DSL filterTelephone cordTelephone wall jack 45 In about 30 seconds, the handset display should say Registration Complete. Press Talk/fl ash and make sure you get a dial tone. If... Try... you don't hear a dial tone the display says Registration Failed -- Making sure the handset is fully charged, then start over at step 1.
A search of Uniden support only said to call 1-800-297-1023 with handset registration issues. The rep picked up quickly and walked me through the reset procedure. 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
I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.
If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.
When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.
