What is meant when screen says out of range


You will need to take your handset closer to the base because the signal is weak and out of range. Try locating the charging base in a more central location. If this doesn't work try this.
You can first try a Basic Reset.
A reset is done by following the below steps:
1. Disconnect the battery from handset(s)
2. Disconnect Phone Cord from wall jack
3. Disconnect Phone cord from base unit
4. Disconnect AC adapter from wall outlet
5. Allow to sit for 30 min
6. Reconnect Phone Cord to base
7. Reconnect Phone cord to wall jack
8. Reconnect AC Adapter to wall outlet
9. Reconnect battery into handset until you click or feel the plug snap into place
10. Re-Register Handset by placing on main base

Hi, It sounds like the batteries of the handset could be the problem.
Try replacing the batteries with other new batteries. I recently purchased a good brand of battery (not rechargeable), but they were down in their voltage straight out of the package.
Make sure the batteries are AAA NiMH batteries, and that they are charged for at least 16 hours.
Also check that you have inserted them the correct way +ve/-ve.
When you have inserted them, place the phone on the base and the handset should show you it is charging.

One of my cordless phones says not registered. How do I fix that? Also, another phone says check battery. Where can I get another battery? Warranty?


Put the non-registered handset in the master base unit. Unplug the base unit for about 10 seconds and plug it back in. Wait for a message to change on the handset and press and hold the handset locator button for 4 seconds. This will re-register the handset. Do not remove the handset from the base while performing the above steps. Good Luck!

My phone is saying "out of range" it wont let me make any calls. how can i fix it???


When the base and handset stop talking to each other, it is generally because of a power interruption. Modern cordless phones transmit a security code from handset to base, when you start a call. This helps reduce the likelihood that you and your neighbor will be talking over each other, if your phones are on the same channel. If they get out of sync, usually the phone will just beep "out of range."
  • To reset the chip which holds the security code:

    1. Place the phone back in the cradle for a slow five count. Then, pick it up and try it. If it works, you are done. If not, go to step 2.

    2. Unplug the telephone's base unit. Slide the battery cover off the handset, and remove the battery. Wait 30 seconds or so. Plug the base unit back in. Wait five seconds or so. Replace the battery in the handset. Place the handset in the base unit for a slow five count (as above). Now try it. This will almost always solve the problem.

    If this does not work, it may mean that the chip which holds your security code is now defunct and needs to be serviced. *

  • Clean the battery contacts in case the battery is not getting charged. Clean the charging contacts on your base unit with a pencil eraser. This gives just enough abrasion to rub off any oxidation, without impairing the chromed surface of the contacts.

  • If the battery is new and you are still experiencing problems, the phone will need to be services. Contact your authorized Service Center. *

My Uniden cordless' handset and the base wont register Can it be bypassed or decoded


Here it is step-by-step: 1. Remove battery

2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it’s workable)

3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.

4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok

5. Remove battery (yes again)

6. Reinsert battery (this time there’s no need to hold down any buttons)

7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)

8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

ATT 5840 Base reset code/procedure


document.write(parent.prscreen) Try this to get it working. Relocate the handset(s) closer to the main base.

Check for any lights on the base including charge, intercom, and channel lights (if applicable to the model).

Re-cradle the handset on the base for 15 seconds. Lift the handset and press PHONE.

Unplug the AC adapter from the main base unit and take out the battery from the handset. Leave it unplugged for 15 seconds. Plug the handset battery in and re-cradle the handset. Plug back the AC adapter in and wait for 15 seconds.

Try to de-register the handsets by following the steps below:

1. Using the soft keys on the base located below the base screen, press MENU
2. Press the down arrow once until BASE SETTINGS is highlighted.
3. Press the OK soft key.
4. On the base, press MUTE 3 times and FLASH twice. This will
deregister the unit.

Below are steps on how to re-register the handsets:

1. Make sure to charge the handset battery pack at least 12 hours.
2. Using the soft keys on the base located below the base screen, press MENU.
3. Use the up or down arrow keys to select DISPLAY BASE ID.
4. Press OK. The base screen will display the 15-digit Base ID
code for about 30 seconds, then the unit returns to the idle
screen. Write down the Base ID code on a piece of paper.
5. At the cordless handset, use the soft key to select NEW.
6. Enter the 15-digit Base ID code using the number keypad.
7. Use the soft key to select OK. The screen displays PLEASE
WAIT!.
8. After about 45 seconds, the screen displays FOUND BASE. If the handset displays BASE BUSY TRY LATER, the base is in
use.

Other products that use the 5.8GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. These products or equipments include: radio towers, page towers, cellular Phones, other 5.8GHz cordless phones, intercoms, or monitors. If any of these are in the area, they may interfere with the performance of the phone. Try relocating the phone.

Video displays, Televisions or Personal Computers can cause
interference on the phone if it is plugged in electrically with one of this equipment (typically on a power strip or extension cord). Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet without any other major appliance plugged in.
You can also relocate the base to another room.

Relocate the phone out of the kitchen area. Appliances may cause interference.

If the charge light does not remain on, clean the handset and base charging contacts using a pencil eraser. If it comes on after cleaning the contacts, you may need to charge the unit for 10 hours.

Make sure that the AC power cord is securely plugged into the base. If unsuccessful, plug the unit into a different known working outlet or turn on the switch on the power strip.

Couldn't make any calls


You might try unplugging the base AND removing the batteries from the handset for 30 minutes. Then reinsert the batteries, place the handset in the cradle in the base, and then plug the base back in. This might allow the handset and the base to re-sync with each other.
