I have a Phillips CD135. I dropped the handset and it hit a hard object. The handset had a blank screen and when I put it back on the base station the display has said SEARCHING ever since. What can I do?

Try reregistering the handset to the base. You might also try pulling the battery out of the handset for 30-45 seconds before trying to reregister.

Reply back what you find. This may not be repairable, but I want to make sure we exhaust all possible remedies before you discard it. Or I can help you to decide what your next steps are.

Welcome to Fixya! Unfortunatey, There is not a Lot that you can do after this Happens, You might try Exchanging the Battery for a New one and wait 1 Hour before installing the New one. No Guarantees that this will work. Usually the Consumer will Wind up Replacing the Unit after this has Happened. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

You need to open unit and check its PCB is broken or not. Any connector is OFF or misaligned.
If PCB is cracked or broken then new unit is an option.

The handset must be disassembled, for sure there are broken contacts or a broken board in there.

    The phone must be disassembled, then you look for parts damaged by the shock.

    You look for broken contacts , connectors not well in place, broken solder joints and damage to board.

    This kind of damage is either fixed with a small soldering (antenna or display for example) , or it is not worth repair (damaged board).

Uniden dwx207


When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.

If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.

Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.

If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.

I hope this helps.

What does it mean by out of range or no power at base


Maybe you handset was registered to another base at one time or another. The mmessage out of range will show up also if it cant see the base.


If you have a DS6101 you can manually deregister the handset without having the original base it was registered too by doing the following steps:


Called the manufactuer.... To do this enter on the handset you want to deregister:

*331734# and press (Menu Key# 1 - top uppermost left button that is unmarked).


This will put the handset back into the register mode.



Hope this helps,

My vtech cordless reads out of range or no power at base, what is wrong?


Official solution to this issue:

Make sure base station serial number matches all handsets serial numbers.

If they don't match you will have to de-register the units.

De-register the base station by holding the find handset button for 10 secs or until the In Use light illuminates, release the button and then tap it once more. You should hear a short beep followed by a longer beep.

Press Menu Select and the press the following without pause - *7890#
You should now see Test Base at the top of the screen press the Vol up button until Test Handset is present.
Press Menu/Select and you should see SW Version displayed. Press Vol up button until you see regstr clear, then press Menu Select and then Menu Select again.

At the handset remove the battery for 15 secs and then place the battery back into the handset. You should see 1. Place handset ... 2. press # on the handset screen. DO NOT FOLLOW THE ON SCREEN DIRECTIONS.

Next place the Handset on the base station and press the find handset button for 4 secs until the In Use light shows up. Remove the handset and press the # button.

Your handset should now display Handset 1. You can do all the other handsets the same way.

Hope this helps!

The handset is not ‘registered’ with the based unit.
By default, the Master PIN is 0000.
  1. On the base station, press and hold The paging key for approximately 5 seconds.
  2. On the handset, press Menu key,
  3. scroll : to ADVANCE SET and press (Menu) OK,
  4. scroll : to REGISTRATION and press (Menu) OK.
Note: If no action is taken on the handset within 10 seconds, the registration procedure will be aborted. If this happens, repeat Step 1.
  1. Enter the Master PIN when prompted and press (Menu) OK to confirm.

Phillips dect2152


If you bought the base and handset together they should already be registered. If not then the instruction manual is downloadable here: MANUAL


The relevant section is on page 16 - here is a copy:

4 handsets can be registered to the base station. A handset
can only be associated with 1 base station.
�� To register another handset
First enter registration mode by unplugging and
plugging back in the power adapter to the
electricity supply.
Handsets registering / unregistering ( )
�� To unregister the handset you use
enter the RC code*
�� To unregister all the handsets (except the handset you are using)
enter the RC code*
Once the menu is selected, enter the RC* code written under the base and press
to confirm.
Warning : If you wish to associate a non-Philips handset to the DECT 211 or DECT 215 base
stations, make sure that these handsets are GAP compliant otherwise they will not operate properly.
*RC code
(Registration
Code) is
written under
the base.
Warning : Once unregistered, the handset is no longer operational.

Please rate my assistance this should be a fixya!

Registering a base station of Siemens Gigaset 2415 Cordless Phone


To register your handset to that base station, you must put the base station in registration mode at the same time you put the handset in registration mode. This is how you do it. At the handset you push OK when it asks you to register. If it asks you for the pin enter 0000 (factory pin) and push OK. The handset should say "registering base 1". Then at the base press the page/reg key down until it flashes (its to the immediate right of the cradle where you rest the handset for charging). That puts the base in registration mode and now its looking for the handset and vise versa. Now watch your handsets display. If it asks to to select an intercom number, then push ok and your done. If it says "invalid pin" then you need to reset your pin on your base (thats a different problem see below). If the handset times out and never registers, you need to repeat the process a couple times, you may have a bad base or it needs to be defaulted. If you need more help you can download a manual for free or get free technical help at the link below.
http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%202415%20User%20Guide.pdf

If you need to default your pin, you can do so but it will default the base station to factory settings. To do so remove the power from your base, hold your page/registration key down, and apply power back to the base. Count to 15, then let off the key. Turn off the power, count to five, then apply power again and follow the steps again to register the handset and you will need to reregister every handset that was previously running on it.

Phillips phone cd445


On the hand set:
- menu button - ADVANCED SET - REGISTRATION - base 1
- pin # is 0000 (default)

On the base station and the base station handset - press and hold for at least (3) seconds, at the same time:
- on base - the intercom button
- on base handset - menu button

It's in the manual but you need a magnifying glass to read it.

Blinking lights


The blinking cordless handset seems to be your main issue. IT should not continue to blink after a start up. I think if you replace the handset and sync it to your base station, your problem will be resolved. The T7406 phones are not the most rugged handsets. IF this unit was dropped, a lo of your symptoms make sense.
