Hi there, you will need to unplug the unit and let stand for about 5 min. take out the batteries in the handset as well. after 5 min, reload the batteries and plug in the main unit. this will reset the entire internal program. this should fix the problem.

Why does screen indicate "searching"?


The handset cannot communicate with its base.

When the handset cannot establish its secure (encrypted) radio
link with the base it is 'paired with' or 'registered' to, it will first
say "Connecting....", then it will display "Out of Range or No
Power at Base", then it settles at the infamous "Searching..."
display.

Although rare, the registration between base and handset can
become corrupted and lost so that we must de-register and
then re-register the pair.

First, ensure that power is 'on' at the base (a more common cause)
and the cradle will charge the handset, etc.

Second, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a weak battery will interfere with the registration process.

Then try the following ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, and similar):

To deregister the handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

Next, to re-register the handset:

2. Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
after ~30 seconds the handset should display
"Handset #" and be good to go...
or it will display "Registration Failed"

Good luck!

At&T EL52300--one phone reads 'out of range-move closer to base.' I did--it doesn't help. Battery OK---What do I do?


It appears that the one handset has become orphaned and
must be de-registered and then re-registered.

1. To de-register the orphaned handset from the old base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or "Out of..."
enter *331734 [menu]
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base and hold
it until the "in use" light comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ),
then release the button and set the new handset into
the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds it will beep
and display "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all in sequence.
( it is the only way to 'rescue' the places occupied
by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

1. Press and hold the the "Handset Locator" button
until the "in use" light lights and then starts to blink
( ~ 10 seconds ), release the button --
then press it again briefly while the "in use" light
is still blinking.

2. The base will beep and all handsets that were registered
will display "Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset
in turn to re-register them:
press "Handset Locator" ~ 4sec ( in-use light on ),
set handset into the base cradle, etc.

The manual is available from: www.manualslib.com
but does not fully describe these procedures.

Good luck !

Uniden phone stuck at searching, not getting a dial tone


One thing to try is deregestering your phone and registering it with the base again.

Hole the # and 'End' key on the handset until the next menu appears (about 5 seconds). Select deregister phone (use the 'Menu' button). Do it again, but select "base unavailable". After that, set them in the base (not the handset charger) and they should register with the base.

This works on most Uniden model phones.

How tomake outgoing calls with my american telecom digital cordless phone model#ra23634H


Thuis was hard to find but it worked for my ra2364hh's
note the phone stopped working in "tone dial" after 2 months and now functions with "pulse dial" only.....

Registration The handset and base will be pre-registered with a digital security code identification, which is stored in the phone’s memory, so that your phone will be ready to work right out of the box. However, your phone also has a procedure to allow you to re-register in case the link is lost accidentally. Enter menu, press the key - Select REGISTER and confirm PIN CODE will be displayed, enter the PIN code (the default value is 0000) and confirm. SEARCHING will be displayed while your handset is in registration mode Press and hold the Page key for 3 seconds on the base until the “In use” LED is ON, putting the base in registration mode SUCCESS will be displayed. This means the handset has located the base, and will get a handset number from the base that displays after the handset name for internal calling. If the handset does not locate the base, FAILED will be displayed and it will return to the non-located display mode that displays BS SEARCH with the antenna icon flash. Try again and check that you are not in an environment with interference. Note: Your base can register up to four handsets. If you have more than one handset, repeat the above steps to register each new handset.
