How do you register a waterproof phone (TWX977) to a TRS9585

We recently purchased a TRS9585whihc came with 3 handsets and a waterproof handset (TWX977). We succesffully connected the TRS9855 however have not been able to get the waterproof one working. Apparently we have to register the TWX977 to the TRS9585. We have a message dispalyed on the waterproof handset :"Your phone is currently not regsitered, please refer to use manual" Unfortuantley, the user manual is not user friendly and we have not been abel to figure it out.

Not sure if you still have this problem, but...

Basically go on you base unit, and hit "MENU/SELECT". Scroll down to "REGISTER HANDSET" and click "MENU/SELECT". On your waterproof handset, hold the "#" key until it displays "REGISTERING HANDSET". And voila! After that finishes, your waterproof handset will be good to go!

Setting up my outgoing message: just purchased Uniden cordless DECT 1580. Manual says select command 8. How do I find Command 8? thanks, joan


Hi,

please follow the instruction to register the handset to base

To register a DCX150 accessory handset:
1. Charge the handset completely.
2.Place the handset in the base cradle for about thirty seconds. Handset Registering will appear in the LCD.
3.When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration complete then show the handset ID number.

If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.

To register a DCX200 or DCX300 accessory handset:

1.Charge the handset completely.
2.Disconnect the base AC adapter. Then press and hold find while you reconnect the adapter. Keep holding find until the charge LED starts to blink.
3.On the handset, press and hold # until the handset beeps and displays Handset Registering.
4.When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration complete then show the handset

If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.

Uniden DECT 1580-4WXT waterproof unit appears to be dead - will not charge or register with base unit. Just bought system at Sam's Club 2 days ago. The other 3 units work fine.


This phone uses inductive charging because of the waterproof feature. I suggest that you remove the
battery cover from the back of the handset, unplug
the battery, and then plug it back into the handset.
This solution worked for me.

Handset won't work


I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.

Cant register/install a new dect 6.0 uniden 2060 phone


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 Uniden.com.
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.

Only one handset can be registered at a time. The handset ID for the supplied handset(s) was assigned at the factory, which has #1 or #2 in the display (#2 for models that have two handsets in packaging). When you register additional handset to the base, the handset ID will be assigned. 1) Before registering the extra handset, the battery pack must be charged for 15-20 hours. 2) Place the extra handset in the main base unit to begin registration. 3) While the handset is registering, Handset Registering will appear in the LCD. When Registration Complete is displayed, the handset has been registered to the base. If Registration Failed appears, please try these steps again.
