Short answer:
No. This model of phone can only support 4 handsets. If you need more than that, you will need to have a second base unit.

Detailed answer:
One of my handsets went bad, and I just bought complete DCT748-4 package from a seller on eBay for a very good price. This set was used, but in very good condition. I didn't need the whole set - just one handset - but like I said, it was a good price. Anyway, I began by telling my old base unit to de-register handset #2 (the failed unit). However, I then found that I could not register the "new" handset with my old base unit because it was already registered to the "new" base unit. So, I first had to apply power to the "new" base unit and de-register the handsets. Then, I placed one of the "new" handsets onto my old base unit, and it said "Handset Registering ..." and registered just fine. Just for the fun of it, I placed one of the other spare handsets into my old base unit. It said "Hanset Registering ..." but then it beeped and said "Registration Failed." This is because I already had 4 handsets registered to my base, and the base can not handle a fifth handset.

My DTC 6200 converter/decoder was working fine. A few weeks ago I have disconnected it, pull the power cord out of the AC outlet, put the decoder in a safe place. Then when I finish painting, I hook...


Hello
Check out these with your Motorola converter

[1] Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the DCT*
and an AC outlet.

[2] If the DCT* is connected to a switched outlet on another
unit, verify that that unit is powered on.

[3] Press the POWER button on the DCT* front panel instead

of the remote control. The batteries in the remote control
may be depleted

[4] The DCT* may have received a software update and

may not power on while the new software is being
installed. Try again in a few minutes.
OK.

Handheld won't communicate with the base


i have the same problem and it has happened infrequently several times. you probably have to deregister the handset and re-register it and rest the base and handheld to communicate since my model is different from yours there may be differences in how to go about it but for my model the suggestion is as follows:

go to www.uniden.com for customer support here is a direct link to some frequentlt asked questions http://www.mycusthelp.com/uniden/supportfaq.asp?sSessionID=&lstFilter_a=&lstFilter_b=&lstFilter_c=&txtCriteria=hanset+won%27t+connect+to+base&optcond=2&iStartCount=1

Try resetting the phone system by using the following steps:

1) Enter the "System Reset" menu, then "Deregister HS" submenu.
2) Press volume/up or down arrow keys to select the handset ID to be de-registered from the list, then press the OK soft key.
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. When de-registration is complete, "Deregistration Complete" appears.

4) After de-registering the handset, move to "Replacing the Base Setting" below. When you go through the deregister procedure if you get "out of range", That is okay. Go ahead and go to the next step.

Replacing the Base Setting
1) Enter the "System Reset" menu, then "Replacing Base" submenu. "Do you want to replace Base?" appears.

2) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a conformation tone. The base information will be deleted. When replacing the base is complete, "Please Register" appears, register the handset to the new base.

If your handset is reading out of range. Check the the main base and make sure you unit has power. This can be done by placing the handset in the main base to see if the charge in use light comes on.
If your main base isn't getting power please make sure the ac adapter is plugged in and is warm to the touch. If not the ac adapter would be damaged.
To resolve out of range follow the below steps.
Press and hold the end key.
Press and hold the # key.

Release the keys and select replacing base and press select.
You will see Replace base?
Select Yes and press select.
Now place the handset on the base and it should register to the base and allow for calls to be made.

Excel formula


Hi, I am not really sure if I get your exct meaning, so would I be correct in saying that you wish to copy all the data and structure from DCT INFO across to DCT. If this is correct so long as the dollar data is formatted in the first worksheet to currency then when it is pasted it will maintain its formating into the next sheet.

One question though...Do you wish to change the data on the DCT INFO sheet and wish it to be automatically changed in the DCT sheet?

If yes then you will have to write the following formula into the DCT cells:- =DCT INFO!A1 (where A1 is the first cell of data in sheet DCT INFO that you wish to duplicate.) You can then use auto fill by selecting the cell you just typed the formula in to and then placing the cursor onto the small black square in the righthand bottom of the cell and clicking the left mouse button and holding and dragging down to whereever your data ends. For example A30. Repeat this with the column B.
Let me know if tis is not entirelt what you require and I will try to help further.

How does one get the handsets to record the new speed dial numbers on the base phone?


I'm pretty sure the speed dial numbers are programmed on a per-phone basis. Most people would not want changes on one phone's speed dial to effect the other phones. I know registering the handsets will not make a difference. If the cordless phone is working, it's registered to the base. This is required so your neighbor cannot buy the same phone model and use your phone line. In the old days cordless phones were permanently linked to one base but now you can get extra handsets on many systems and "register" the phone to work on your base.

There is a "Tone / Pulse" switch or program setting you want set to "Tone". It would be part of the base unit and not an option on the cordless handsets.

Phones (4) do not work


If you tried the registration process discribed in the book, it is possible that the base may have gotten zapped. Happened to me. Bought a new DCT 758 (cheap at Amazon.com) with only one extra handset and used two of the old handsets with it. It will only support the handset in the base and 3 others, so you can't use all of the old ones (save them for extras).
