I have a panasonic kx tga652 phone it says base no power on several of my hand sets


That sounds like a handset model, from any of a range of DECT Plus systems?

Panasonic phone support is horrible, but they're pretty good about keeping manuals available on their Panasonic.com (may need to select USA) support site. Search the model number not of the handset, but the system found on the bottom of the main base unit.

There are enough versions and configurations that it's hard to guess specifics, but those series generally have the ability to power the base from a handset during power failures. There could be a need to reset something, or bad batteries or connectors in the handset in the base. Try swapping which handset is left in the base, and inspect the batteries in all handsets (sometimes removing them shows corrosion, or cleans a bad contact just from handling). Most of those use regular AAA NiMH batteries, and so they're pretty easy and cheap to replace if needed.

Hi, Bruce Kelly I have a Uniden DECT1480-3 That the screens on all hand set's say's SEARCHING. I can not get a dial tone so I am unable to make a call or recieve a call. Their is no dial tone and all of...


All of the handsets appear to have lost their
registration to the base and will need to
be first de-registered then re-registered.
It may be necessary to do this in three stages.
First be sure that all of the handset batteries
are fully charged.
1.
Clear one of the handsets of its registration:
hold down both the [END] and [#] keys
at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
Since the handset is not recognized by its
base, select "Base Not Available".
Confirm the choice by selecting "Yes".
This handset will now display
"Handset Not Registered"
--
2.
With "...Not Registered" displayed, place
the handset into the base unit cradle.
The handset should now dieplay
"Handset Registering"
After ~30 seconds the display should show
"Registration Complete" and will have a
handset unit number.
If the unit shows "Handset 1" (doubtful)
then just repeat steps 1 & 2 above for each
additional handset in turn. This can also be
the route if you do not care what the numbers
are and do not exceed the maximum count
for your system ( some are 4, 5, or even 12 ).
If the handset is a number other than 1 you
may want to clear the base & re-register
all of the handsets:
3.
Using the now-registered and working handset
(number x), press both the [END] and [#] keys at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
This time, choose "Deregister HS" and the
System Reset Menu will prompt you to
select from the list of registered handsets
which one you want to deregister: choose
one that is NOT the one you have working.
Cycle around deleting them all until only the
one that is working is left: select that one and
the system will be ready to start re-registering
all handsets again from Handset #1.
Start at process (1) above, then (2).
Good Luck!!

1. Press & hold End and # at the same time until you see the System Reset menu.

2. If you still have the base the handset is registered to, select Deregister HS, then select the handset you want to reset. If you don't have that base anymore, select Base Unavailable.

3. To confirm, select Yes. The handset displays "Handset not registered"


Now you want to register the phone again.

1. Place the handset in the base; the display should say Handset
Registering.

2. Wait until the display says Registration Complete (about 30
seconds), then pick up the handset and press Talk/flash.
You should now have a dial tone

Can you tell me how to fix this T23 PD error message on a handset for the AT&T EP 5962 2-line phone?


Well this worked for me so hopefully it will work for everyone else also... I had dropped my handset and the battery popped out.. well upon reinserting the battery i got the T23 PD Blinking error on my phone, well after trying multiple things from what the manual was stating I eventualy gave up and unplugged the handset from the wall... well we received a call in our office and all of a sudden my "unplugged" phone, that was still sitting in the handset charger began to ring and all the normal numbers and name were on the face of the handset... I then plugged the phone back in and went into the menu to Register, then entered the Base ID which is found at your Base Phone. Once this was complete it said please wait.. although for a short while it kept on saying System Busy if you tried to hit line 1 or 2 but by the next morning it is working fine! :) Hope this helps for you also.

First thing you must do, is clear the base memory of the phones.

To deregister all handsets:
Select MENU on the base, scroll to SETUP BASE,
then select OK.
Scroll to DEREGISTER ALL and then select SET. Thebase will display DO YOU WANT TO DEREGISTER ALL HANDSETS?
Select YES. All handsets are deregistered and are unusable until each has been re-registered

During registration,you must enter the 15-digit ID number of the telephone base. To find this number, go to the base, select MENU, scroll down to DISPLAY BASE ID, then select OK

Always searching, cannot register to base unit


Throw it away.  I've spend over $100 with new batteries, calling Motorola, emailing Motorola and moving phones around my house. My phone not only cannot find some of the handsets within the house, but sometimes will just drop the call...and that's on the base. Once the call is dropped, the handsets all say, "Looking for Base".  I am now throwing away all of my phones and buying a complete new system.  After loosing multiple business calls, I have given up.  Motorola is no help, They keep telling me its out of warranty, can only suggest that I unplug the system and re-plug it all in, in various orders with batteries and phone line connections.  Then told me I had possibly purchased the wrong batteries.  They sold them to me.  
Throw it away...it will save you HOURS and HOURS of pain and agony of these phones.
