Hi, I solved this issue this morning. What you cannot confuse here is that handset and base. To do the registration successfully, the both must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting". The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning. In my case, sadly, the base was more likely dead (if I press any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there is no response). Hence I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible BINATONE 1800 Single at Comet (14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the BINATONE instruction. Then on the Phillips CD240 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset. The BINATONE base came with 12 months manufacturer's guarantee so I am sorted with the base problem for at least a year, which is nice. I hope this is helpful. Best, Ken

Siemens Gigaset 4200 Cordless keep searching for base


The handset should be returned to the charging station, let it set for a few seconds. If this is a satellite phone, make sure the main phone "base unit" is connected to phone outlet and plugged in. After the phone has established its physical connection with the base again you can remove it and use it like normal.

Can I use Philips CD240 CD245 handset on a philips dc445 base


Simple answer yes they are compatable I just did it as I could not find any CD445 handsets.The manuals are downloadable from Phillips just search for CD445 or CD245 manual.Just press speaker button on 445 base for 5 seconds untill it beeps twice,then on new 245 handset menu/ register enter default code 0000 and bingo its live. Oddly the newer handset bases are 9v and not compatable with 445 bases which are 6v and have different contacts so you cant sit your 245 in the old base.My new 245 came with a new base anyway so no problem.

My one-month old philips cd240 worked well at the beginning, but this last one week it's been giving me problems. With battery fully charged, the phone goes totally off whenever the speaker button is...


There is a problem with your speaker as well as your microphone, it can be replaced, just go to any cellphone technician in your area.

I have a phillips CD240 cordless phone, on the screen is flashing SEARCHING and wont make or receive calls.


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. "Searching" means the handset cannot find the signal from its base, and if you check your base, it's more likely than not, dead. In my case, I checked this by pressing any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there was no response (although the handset seems to recharge power fine for some reason).

Therefore, I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible (binatone 1800 Single at Comet - 14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the binatone instruction. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked.

Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 new handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good (no different from the previous genuine set) and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset.

I don't have any high regards to binatone specifically as a brand because our last corded phone system was rubbish and died shortly after 12 months guarantee but to me it looks as if GAP compatible cordless phones have certain life-span however cheap or expensive they are (while handset seem to last much longer). Threrefore, there is more incentive to buy a cheap base new (of any make that are GAP Compatible) then connect your old handset to this base and live on 12 months manufacturer's guarantee and hopefully more. On the web, I saw some comments that are saying GAP Compatible phones and base sometimes do not successfully register each other (despite even being of the same make or brand). Obviously the users make such attempt at her/his own risk but I can confirm that the above combination worked for me.

Just for info, to do the registration successfully, the both base and handset must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting".

I hope this is helpful.

Best,
Ken

The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning.

Base station and units all say 'searching'


You may need to register your handset to the base.
Normally ,there is a advanced setting ,register handset. At the same time, press and hold "page" key on your base 4 to 5 second , there is be a registation success tone from handset. You can register all of your handset ,one by one. Some model need to input register code, normally ,it is 1234 , or 0000.

Phone says searching


The battery may be weak. Or it is too far from the base. Try exchanging the two. take the handset near the base and see if it will link.
