Uniden 2.4 GHz cordless phone won't register to base
I've put the phone in the base to register, but it wont connect. It reads "unavailable". It does show "HS1" on the display, but will not connect in order to get a dial tone. It is fully charged. Any help would be appreciated.

Same happened to me. Unplug the base from power and the phone line for 30 minutes. Same for the handsets - all. Take out the batteries. Retry. After it says 'registration failed'. Leave it in the cradle. Several minutes later it found itself.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This sounds like the handset has lost its "registration" with
the base. De-registering & re-registering is often easy.
First, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a
weak battery will interfere with the registration process.
Then try this ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, & 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"
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,
within ~30 seconds the handset should display
a "Handset #" and be good to go...
Often the handsets must be re-registered when they won't work. Sometimes they have to be de-registered, then re-registered before getting them to work. Uniden has many different model number 5.8 GHz cordless phones, send a comment with the model number and I will give specific help on your cordless. I have included a link where Uniden cordless manuals can be downloaded if you need it.
The DXI4286-2 is an Analog phone, it does not allow for both handset to be used at the same time. You can transfer a call from one handset to another, but cannot talk on both at the same time.
The following is from the user's manual for your phone:
Unavailable message is displayed on the LCD screen of the handset. • Make sure the other handset is not already in use. Both handsets cannot be in talk mode at the same time. • Place the handset in the main base for at least 5 seconds to re-register to the main base. • Make sure the handset is not too far from the main base when trying to use.
You might want to try one of the DECT or a Digital 2.4 or 5.8 GHz phones, they allow you to use multiple handsets at the same time.
Same manual as lethean provided on a similar post but Page 24 if the previously used Base is Unavailable and your phone shows "Deregistration" in the Menu.
Base Unavailable (Handset Only)
To clear the base registration data in the handset, please follow these steps:
Press and hold  and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select the BASE UNAVAILABLE submenu.
BASE UNAVAILABLE appears. Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Move the cursor to select YES. Press the OK soft key.
1. make sure phone is charged 2. hold down the "mute/program button on the phone 10 seconds. 3. you should see a message on the screen that says you need to push the "pager button" on the handset. 4. Push the pager button
