Trying to register used handsets

We needed to expand our 5.8 system, so we order 2 more handsets on ebay which were used before. One of them is a base. We have walk through the de-register and register in the manual but nothing seems to be working. Is there something else we are missing?

There are a couple of things that may be the problem with this. First, are you sure that the handsets are compatable with the base you are trying to register them to? Second, how many handsets are currently registered to the base unit? You may be trying to register more handsets than the base can handle. and lastly, try doind the de-registration of the handset this way, press and hold the "End" key, while pressing the "End" key, also press the "#" key. The lcd should show two options, select "Base Unavailible" and confirm. The LCD on the handset should then say to place it in the base to register it. If that doesn't work, post with the results of trying the above steps and I will try to help you further.

    Hi - I just read the above post. I am trying to do the same thing. I have the base with a working handset on it. I have two more identical handsets that have never been used. I went thru the steps and deregistered them, but they will not register to the base. I have followed all directions. Any ideas?? Thank you!

Registration:
Instructions if you need to register handsets to the base:
You can register additional handsets to have up to five handsets per base unit, with each handset's number (1 to 5) shown on its display.
1. Press and hold <PAGE> on the base station for more than five seconds to put the base station into registration mode. (Note: there is no feedback to know it is in reg mode.) It will stay in registration mode for about 1 minute. So complete following sequence within this time. (It helps if handset is kept very near to the base during this).
2. Press <MENU> and <UP/DOWN> on the handset to select REGISTRATION.
3. Press <OK> and you are requested to enter the 4-digit system PIN.
4. Enter the 4-digit system PIN.
5. Press <OK> to confirm, and the display will show SEARCHING. If the handset registration is successful, you will hear a confirmation tone and the <antenna icon> will stop flashing. This may take a short while. The handset will automatically be allocated the next available handset number. This handset number is shown in the handset display in standby mode. If thehandset registration is unsuccessful, the <antenna icon> will still flash and the display will return to ' REGISTER', so you will need to repeat registration process.

How to register handset?


Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden 5.8GHz cordless system, the only thing I can do is to suggest you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual. The manual will give you step-by-step instructions for registering the handset with the base.

Had to buy a new base for phones and got one phone with new base unit, within phone menus there is a place to Deregister the handset, but I can not locate how to Register the other handsets and nothing...


Hi, If there is not an option for registering the handsets then more than likely it is an automatic function-you may just need to place each handset into the base units cradle to register. Also maybe the base unit has a menu option for registering. I hope this helped, please write back if so and thank you for asking FixYa, Good luck-Prodzilla.

How do you register a waterproof phone (TWX977) to a TRS9585


Not sure if you still have this problem, but...

Basically go on you base unit, and hit "MENU/SELECT". Scroll down to "REGISTER HANDSET" and click "MENU/SELECT". On your waterproof handset, hold the "#" key until it displays "REGISTERING HANDSET". And voila! After that finishes, your waterproof handset will be good to go!

My handset has a blinking icon, indicating not close to base


I found the 800 number to call, spoke to customer service, they gave me the suggestion of unplugging the base from the outlet, removing the batteries from the handset, wait 5 minutes and plug in and put in the batteries. Yes, that fixed it. And then the customer service technician called back later to see if it had worked. I thought that was above and beyond the call of duty. Certainly a good way to win customers!

How to set up uniden phone to base


If the handset has previously worked with the base - press the hangup button and the # key at the same time on the handset for five seconds and follow the prompts to deregister the handset. (System reset - deregister HS - which handset) It will tell you that the handset is deregistered. Then put the handset onto the base and it will register the handset.

My Uniden cordless' handset and the base wont register Can it be bypassed or decoded


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
