Please check that you have correctly registered the second handset to the base. It may be necessary to de-register the second handset and then re-register it. "Out of range" just means the second handset is not within range of the base phone it was registered to.

DS6321 out of range, no power at base


This sounds like a registration problem, the handset(s)
and the base have lost identification with each other.

I. To address this, first de-register the handset(s) ---
do this procedure for each handset:

0. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover....

1. press [menu]
2. scroll up/down to "Settings"
3. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
4. scroll down to "next page", press [select]
5. scroll down to "Register Clear?", press [select]
6. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??", press [select]
7. display reads "Ok" and chirps, press [ off ]

8. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY (why the cover was off)

9. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery & replace the cover

10. display reads "Not Registered" ===============================

II. To register the handset to the base:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold for
~4 sec until the "In Use" lamp lights.
2. press # on the handset and set the handset into
the handset cradle on the base
3. within 30 seconds or so, the handset will either
chirp and display "Handset Registered", then
"Handset #1" or it will say "Registration Failed".

NOTE: the battery must be well charged prior to the
registration process, a weak battery may cause a
"Registration Failed". Charge the battery for a few
hours and try the registration ( II ) again.

NOTE: the base can only handle 5 handsets and will
increment the number of each handset registered
until "Handset #5" has appeared, even if some of
the handsets are lost/not in use. Trying to register
more than 5 handsets will result in "Registration Failed."
===============================

III. To clear the base of all handset registrations and
be able to start registering again at Handset #1:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold past ~4 sec when the "In Use" lamp lights, at
about 10 secs the "In Use" lamp will begin to
blink.
2. release the [Find Handset] button momentarily,
then briefly press it again. After a moment,
all handsets that were registered to the base
(if any) will display "Not Registered" and be
ready for fresh registration
3. for multiple handsets, return to II. above and
register each handset in turn.
===============================
Good luck !!

(For DCX150 handsets)
5) Place the handset in the base cradle for about thirty seconds. Handset Registering will appear in the LCD.
6) When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration complete then show the handset

5)Disconnect the base AC adapter. Then press and hold find while you reconnect the adapter. Keep holding

My E63 has been blocked by the Optus network...how do i un block it


Your handset can become fully locked due to exceeding the number of attempts to enter the correct unlock code. The type of handset you have will determine what process to follow to see if the handset can be unlocked.If your handset appears with a Code Error or does not unlock with the first or second attempt, you will need to call Customer Service to confirm the code. Once the handset is fully locked it will require manually unlocking from Optus and your handset will need to be sent away.

1 Insert SIM
N.B. Can be unlocked with SIM removed from handset however there is a 5 second time limit 2 Power phone on 3 Type: #pw+15 digit code+1 (where '15 digit code' is the unlock code) 4 Press Hash (#) - SIM Restriction OFF will display on screen for one second
Troubleshooting:
  • If the unlock code is incorrect the phone will display the message 'Code Error'
  • If the user tries to unlock a phone which does not have SIM Lock activated the phone will display the message 'SIM was not restricted'
  • If the syntax (#pw+) is incorrect when entering the unlock code - nothing will happen.

I have a three hand set GE dect 6.0 one of the handsets will not activate, it keeps showing me "Out of Range" I have tried many times to set it up but it always give me the same message "out of range". Can...


On the handset, look for the "PROGRAM" button and choose "HANDSET SETUP". Scroll through the menu to find "REGISTRATION" and select it. The handset display should then prompt you to press and hold the "PAGE" button on the base unit for 5 seconds and then press the "PROGRAM" button on the handset.

Perhaps you've already tried this process, as you indicated your attempts "to set it up". This is what worked for my GE DECT phones when one of the handsets displayed "Out of Range" after an electrical storm. Best of luck to you!

Uniden Cordless Phone Model DSS7855. frequently fails to connect to an incoming call, with 'out of range' indication. The phone is less than 1 meter from the base station.


The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.

Using the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset. All this requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.

To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the ‘end’ button and the ‘#’ button simultaneously until the phone beeps. It will now be de-registered from the base.

However, the base will still have this handset in it’s record.

To de-register all handsets from the base, remove power and the base handset. Press and hold the ‘flash/find hs’ button while applying power. Wait for the beep and release the button. The charge light will now flash. Sit any handset in the cradle. When the flashing stops, all handsets are inhibited from connecting.

However, the handset still appears to be connected to the base unit. Pressing talk will give an ‘Unable to connect’ message. To re-register the handsets to the base, you have to de-register the handset first with the two button method.

Of interest, pressing ‘*’ and ‘#’ on the handset while reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the same on the base unit puts you in some sort of diagnostic mode. Press speaker to exit.

Presume you are talking about the extra handset. Try placing the extra handset in the "main" base for 5 seconds.

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.
