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!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Add and register a handset
Each newly purchased handset must be registered to the telephone base before use. When first purchased, each expansion handset shows NOT REGISTERED.
You may need to charge the phone first.
To register a handset:
·Place the unregistered handset in the telephone base or charger. Press Find for 4 seconds. If the headset screen doesn't light up after the 4 seconds. You will need to charge it some more.
·After making sure it is charged set the telephone on the main base again press and hold the Find button for 4 seconds ( until the red light IN USE comes on) Then release the find button. The headset will show PLEASE WAIT; this takes about 10 seconds to complete the registration. The hand set will show HEADSET REGISTERED and the headset number assigned, you will hear a beep when the registration is finished
·When the registration is complete, the newly registered handset is assigned the next available handset registration number. For instance, if you already have HANDSET 1 and HANDSET 2, the next registered handset is HANDSET 3.
·Makes sure no other headsets are in use at the time or the registration may fail.
·You cannot register a handset if any other system handset is in use. Only one handset can be registered at a time.
Not stating the model number of your phone makes it a bit difficult because the process is not the same on all models. I am going to deal with the cordless main base only Remove any handset from the main base cradle. Then
On the waterproof handset Press and Hold the # sign until the Registering handset option shows then release it.Then on the main base, Press and Hold the FIND hs or Find or locator button for 5 seconds ( if there is no IN USE light on the base) or until the IN USE light come on, then release it. Hold the handset near the base and it will register.
Please note the Uniden waterproof handset could be a bit tricky to register and not knowing the model makes it more difficult. and you may have to apply other methods.
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 ID number.
If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.
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.
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.
