Registering a new phone

I have GE cordless 5.8 ghz and have registered the first phone on the main base. The other phones display a message on the screen of please register. When I go through all the registration steps that I went through on the first phone, it doesn't work.

Re: Registering a new phone

I tried your solution - putting the phone on the answering machine charger and it worked! Thank you!

Re: Registering a new phone


I just purchase that same model and I had the same issue as you where the phone on the main station worked and the other 2 sitting on their own base station didn't work. What I did to fix the problem was to put each handsets (one at the time ;-) ) on the main base (the one with the answering machine). The Charge/In use light flashed a couple of time then the handset showed as Ready. I then put each handset on their individual base station and they all work fine now.

good luck

Re: Registering a new phone

With a little searching I was not able to confirm this phone could handle more than one cordless handset. Are you replacing a defective handset or trying to add a second. If adding, do you know if it can handle the second unit (is it advertised on the box, in the user guide, etc?) If replacing, you most likely have to de-register the old handset on the base unit before you can register a new one. If you are adding, try de-registering the working handset anyway and registering the new one. If the new one registers and you cannot re-register the once working phone you will know either the system cannot handle two phones or (if the new one will not register but you can again re-register the original) that the new handset has a problem and should be returned.

I had a similar problem which I finally fixed. You did not say if any of your phones registered.
First try the following recommended by Uniden Support:
Your phone(s) should be fully charged before putting them on the main base.
Unplug the battery from the phone by removing the battery cover and removing the connector. Then, push the # and * key together and hold while you plug the battery back in (requires some dexterity). Continue to hold the two keys until you hear a confirmation tone. This will force the phone to reregister. Put the phone on the main base (if you are sure it has a fully charged battery) and see if it will reregister it to solve the problem.
That did not work for me. So, I followed the instructions to de-register the handset (even though it hadn't really registered). But, I also pretended like the Base was not available (because using the base in this step also failed).
1) Press and hold the hang up and # keys for at least 5 seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Select.
3) Select the base you want to deregister from, press Select and then move the cursor to Yes and select.
This causes the phone to delete any of its base information.
At this point, again insure that your phone shows the battery is fully charged and if it is not, put it on the stand alone charger base (not the main base). With the battery fully charged, place it on the base and try registering again by placing it in the main base.
If neither of these approaches help, contact support at
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.

Same happened to me. Unplug the base from power and the phone line for 30 minutes. Same for the handsets - all. Take out the batteries. Retry. After it says 'registration failed'. Leave it in the cradle. Several minutes later it found itself.

I cant dial out it says register HS i am not familiar with the procedure.

When you reset a handset (or if you buy a new one1, that handset displays a Handset Not Registered message. If you see this message on a handset, you need to register it to a base before you can use it.
Registering a handset
Does the handset fit in the base cradle?
Place the handset in the base.
The display should say Handset Registering.
1. On the base, open the menu and select Register Handset. The display should say Handset Registering.
2. On the handset you want to register, press and hold # until the handset display says Handset Registering (about 2 seconds).
In about 30 seconds, the handset display should say Registration Complete. Press TALK ( )/FLASh and make sure you get a dial tone. page29image32024
- 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.
To register a handset to a different base, see the section "Expanding Your phone" in the user's guide for the other base.

My phone display's No link to base. Reconnect main bas AC adapter. It is plugged in what now?

I had this problem, and I fixed it by re-registering the phone to the base. Here are the directions for how to do that from the manual:


Registering a handset to the
base unit
The supplied handset and base unit are
pre-registered. If for some reason the
handset is not registered to the base
unit, re-register the handset.
1 Handset:
2 {V}/{^}: "Initial setting"
3 {V}/{^}: "Registration"
4 {V}/{^}: "HS registration"
5 Base unit:
- KX-TG4011 series:
Press and hold {LOCATOR} for
about 5 seconds. (No registration
- KX-TG4021/KX-TG4071 series:
Press and hold {LOCATOR} for

about 5 seconds until the
registration tone sounds.
If all registered handsets start
ringing, press the same button to
stop. Then repeat this step.
The next step must be completed
within 90 seconds.
6 Handset:
Press {OK}, then wait until a long
beep sounds.
While registering, "Base in
registering mode" is displayed on
all registered handsets.
When you purchase an additional
handset, refer to the additional
handset's installation manual for

My phone says no link to base but I am right beside it.

Sounds like the antenna on the base station is not receiving, or the cordless handset is not transmitting -OR- the sets have never been registered to the base station (please look up registering to base station, if the set has never been registered)

Did the cordless set work before?

The base station or the handset may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless set(s), and take out the batteries from the cordless set(s). Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, then re-install the batteries.

Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link between the base station and the cordless sets.

Good luck

Handset not registering with base

I've repaired thousands of these kx-tga400b phones and we have the only improved keypad that eliminates the common keypad problems for good.

Does the cordless phone have a 3 in the top right corner after it registers to 3? If so, then it is registering correctly. If it THEN consistently says "invalid, please register" there is definitely a problem with the main circuit board and it's not at all common. I've seen a few of these but it's a rare problem. We can fix it but I'm not sure how much luck you would have with any other repair facilities.

If you have the problem intermittently it's probably a bad RF module. That's a much more common issue.

Register problem

Each handset has to sit in the base cradle for at least 15 seconds to register. It should say ready within a few seconds. Same thing after the power shuts off. All handsets have to be re-registered in the main base set.
