    Didnt help at all. That was all I did. You just gave me the instruction manual all over again. Followed that a couple times and still wont register. Ive been reading the forums and it seems that manual doesnt do any good at all.

    same problem here-won't register

    Same issue, same handset

  • Anonymous May 15, 2009

    I have the same problem. I have the 27909EE1 base station and I can't get my newly purchased handset (model 27911EE1) to register with the base. It simply times out and emits an error tone. I am able to un-register and re-register the handset that came with the base, which is identical to the newly purchased model. I've tried registering both at once, unregistering the base handset and registering the new 27911EE1 handset but no luck.

    I think I've narrowed it down to a hardware problem which is just annoying. Any ideas?

I had the same problem but I fixed it by:

1. Disconnect the battery on the handset.
2. Wait 1 minute and reconnect.
3. Register handset.

Here is your owners manual.

A cordless handset will not operate until it is registered to the base. During the
registration process, keep the handset near the base. Up to 4 cordless handsets can
be registered to one base.
NOTE: If a handset is not registered; Not Register flashes on the
display and if the TALK button on the handset is pressed, it will
display Unavailable.
1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the menu button to go to the main menu and use cid/vol (3or4) button to
scroll to Registration.
3. Press menu button to confirm and you may program the following items: Register
and Remove handset.
From the Registration Menu:
1. Press the cid/vol (3or4) button to scroll to the Register sub-menu.
2. Press menu button to enter the menu.
3. Press and hold the page button on base for 5 seconds.
4. The charge/in use indicator will flash slowly for 2 minutes which indicates the
base is in registration mode.
5. If the registration is successful, the handset screen displays Successful and emits
a confirmation tone for 3 seconds.
6. If the registration is failed (i.e. timeout), the handset screen displays “No base” and
emits an error tone.

How can I register my GE 27911 handset?

I also had this problem and then I found a solution from another site.
Just open the handset and remove the battery for about 1 minute.
Reinstall the battery and go through the register procedure again - it will register almost immediately. just keep the handset near the base.

Can't get handset to register

After each registration of a handset, you need to hold the page button on the base for 5+ seconds. If you then get an error tone, you'll likely have to return the phone due to a hardware problem. What did you do?

I have a GE 25922 5.6GHz cordless phone. It has 3 receiver. 1 of the receiver all ways says unavailble and it does not ring or can't call out. Can you help me with phone? Thank you, Sai.

UNAVAILABLE Indicates the handset is out of range. Or an additional handset is in use. Or there has been a base power failure, in which case you must place all handsets on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.

GE Model 27911 DECT 6.0 Additional Cordless Handset not working

I had the same problem. What worked for me, after several unsuccessful registration attempts, was to disconnect the phone handset battery for about 1 min and then reconnect the battery. Run the handset registration procedure again. It registered for me on the first attempt after the battery reinstall. Good luck.
