Re: My VT 2421 LCD display "B53"

Is this a second hand set? If so you need to sync it with the base to use it every time it loses power from the batteries. Put it on the main base for 30m seconds and try it again.

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656

To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

1. Take out the handset that sits on the base.
2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.
4. Hold down PAGE key for 5 seconds. When the In Use light begins to flash, release the PAGE key.
5. The handset charging light will blink 5 times. Within 5 seconds from when it stops blinking, press PAGE once.

You must register the handset(s) by following the steps below:

1. After charging the handset, remove it from the cradle, the LCD display will read "SEARCHING FOR BASE".
2. Press "NEW" and then enter the 15-digit Base ID code, located on the underside of the VT2656 base unit.
3. Press "OK". The handset will display "PLEASE WAIT!!".
4. Wait approximately 15 seconds. The handset will display "FOUND BASE". If the handset displays "BASE BUSY TRY LATER", this indicates that the system is in use. Wait until the base unit is in the idle (on hook) mode and repeat steps 2-4.

To register the DSS7905 handset:

Place the handset in the telephone base charging cradle to begin registration.
During the registration process, HANDSET REGISTERING will appear in the LCD. When REGISTRATION
COMPLETE. is displayed; the handset has been registered to the base. If REGISTRATION FAILED. appears,

If an accessory handset has ever been registered to a base, you must reset the handset before you can
register it to a new base. See Resetting the Handsets on page 24.

Unplug the battery. Hold down The * (star) and the #(hash) keys simultaneously. Re-connect the battery, phone will beep and screen will be blank.

Disfunctional Handset

has the secondary handset ever worked. Reason I ask is that it happened to me with a new addtl handset and the problem was that I did not remove the small piece of paper between the handset and the battery which caused only distorted figures to display on the LCD of the handset.
