The handset is defective, the receiver has failed, no signal triggers the message.

Put a new battery in my phone, now it gives me an out of rane message. how do I fix this?


I don't know what model it is but try these:

1. Check the main base is powered up!
2.Take out the battery again and edit a few mins and return it. Place the handset on the base. Now try.

3. If that didn't work you are probably going to to reassign the handset to the base. Check your manual on how to do that.

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

I had the same problem, and restoring to default settings did not seem to work either. I just opened the back, unplugged the battery, plugged it back in, and now it works again.

I have a binatone g11 cordless phone. I cannot make a call as the handsets keep telling me searching or out of area. Even when i place the phone on the base, it still keep giving me the same message.


Try taking the batteries out of the handset and unplugging the master base set. Leave for 15 minutes and then have a try. This often reprogrammes some handsets to the default mode.

Handset does not work


Your handset is no longer communicating with your base. Depending on your model, the solutions can be a couple of different options. If I could view pdf files on this computer I would look it up for you. But here is the link to the manual on Unidens website- http://www.uniden.com/pdf/TRU8865-2om.pdf

Nonetheless, give this a try. Power down your base, and pull the battery out of your handset. Plug the battery back in the handset and set the bad handset in the base cradle, and then power up the base. Wait about 30 seconds, then give the phone a try. If it still does not work, then you need to try to "re-register" the bad handset back to the base. Look in the manual under "registration" procedures. Hope my help fixes it for you. Good Luck, CG

In Use LED flashing constantly


Your phone may have lost registration to the base. 1) Try disconnecting the power to the base and then re-connecting the power with the cordless phone in the base. Give it a few seconds, then see if it works. 2) Try removing the battery, wait 10 seconds, re-install the battery and set the phone in the charger.

The phone is constantly searching for network


It seem that the base is either bad or there is no power supplied to the base from the power adapter. Check and see if the charging light is coming on if it is then you have to replace the base unit and re register the handsets to it. If it is not then most likely the power adaptor is bad. It is difficult to check the adaptor with out a meter but if you know of a way you can try it. If the adaptor is good and there is no charging light on the base then the base definitely is bad. Good luck
