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.

Why does screen indicate "searching"?


The handset cannot communicate with its base.

When the handset cannot establish its secure (encrypted) radio
link with the base it is 'paired with' or 'registered' to, it will first
say "Connecting....", then it will display "Out of Range or No
Power at Base", then it settles at the infamous "Searching..."
display.

Although rare, the registration between base and handset can
become corrupted and lost so that we must de-register and
then re-register the pair.

First, ensure that power is 'on' at the base (a more common cause)
and the cradle will charge the handset, etc.

Second, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a weak battery will interfere with the registration process.

Then try the following ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, and 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"
press [SELECT]
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,
after ~30 seconds the handset should display
"Handset #" and be good to go...
or it will display "Registration Failed"

Good luck!

Handset display says "Connecting" I can't deregister. How can I get the handset to display "not registered"?


The procedures to deregister are, of course, specific
to each make and model number of cordless phone.
All of them are a LOT more involved than simply
removing the battery.

For some AT&T, VTech, Uniden, & GE model numbers
you might try the following:
=====================================
For many AT&T models it is simple:
1. When the handset says "Connecting..."
enter *331734 [menu]
it will soon (chirp) and display "Not registered"
=====================================
For many VTech models it is a bit more involved:
1. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover.
2. press [menu]
3. scroll up/down to "Settings"
4. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
5. if display reads "Test Base",
scroll to "Test Handset", press [select]
scroll to "next page", press [select]
6. scroll to "Register Clear?", press [select]
7. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??",
press [select]
8. display reads "Ok" (chirps), press [ off ]

9. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY
(this is why the cover is off)
10. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery &
replace the cover
11. display reads "Not Registered"
=====================================
For many Uniden models:
1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the
same time, after a few seconds the display reads
2. "System Reset, Deregister Handset"
3. scroll to "... Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT]
4. Handset (chirps)
press [END]
5. display reads "Not Registered, Place in base..." =====================================
For some GE models:
1. press "program[mute]"
2. scroll to "Handset Setup" press "program[mute]"
3. scroll to "Deregistration" press "program[mute]"
4. scroll to "Yes" press "program[mute]"
5. display reads "Not Registered"

=====================================
Once you have the handset displaying "Not Registered"
you can follow the User's Manual instructions to register
the handset.

The model number for your cordless phone is shown on
a small sticker underneath the battery in the handset --
enter this number at www.manualslib.com to get a free
copy of the User's Manual if you need it.

Good luck!

DECT 6.0 cordless. Why won't it register the handset when placed on the base?


This could be several things.... the simplest is that a weak
handset battery can interfere with registration. Or,
does the handset display say "Connecting..." or
"Searching...." or "Out of Range / no power at base ..." ??

In these cases the handset is registered to another base and
must be de-registered before it can be registered again.

To deregister the handset:

Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say:

"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]

scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]

display reads "Place in base..." and it should be ready to
register.

Good luck!

Having problem connecting: handset out of range


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"
press [SELECT]
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...

Good luck!

My Uniden 1560-3 has out of range on all handsets but one. I only have a dial tone on one handset. Please advise how I can correct this problem


Reset the hand sets that are out of range by doing the following:

1) Press and hold END and # for at least five seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Menu/Select.
3) Select the base which you want to de-register from, and then press Menu/Select. Base Unavailable appears.
4) Move the cursor to select Yes, and then press Menu/Select. You hear a confirmation tone,

(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
ID number.
If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.

(For DCX200 or DCX300 handsets)
5)Disconnect the base AC adapter. Then press and hold find while you reconnect the adapter. Keep holding
find until the charge LED starts to blink.
6)When charged, registered handsets display a handset ID number. Handsets that have not been registered display:
7) On the handset, press and hold # until the handset beeps and displays Handset Registering.
8) When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration complete then show the handset
ID number.
If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.

Handset out of range


I'll give it a shot. Have you tried re-regestering the handset? Press and hold down the "end" key (on most models it looks like a red handset) while holding that key down, press and hold the # key, after a few seconds the unit should beep and show:
(SYSTEM RESET)
Deregister HS
BaseUnavailible

Useing the four-way key select "Base unavailable" and press the menu key The LCD display should then show :
"Which Base?"
Base #1

Select base one and then the display will show
"Base Unavailible
Yes
No

Select "Yes."

Your handset is now unregistered. To re-Register the phone to the base do the following. If the base unit has a charging cradle, just set the handset in it and it should register on its own, if you have a cordeed base, or the unit will not register when you set it in the cradle on the base go to menu and select register handset, then press and hold the # key on the handset for 2 - 3 seconds, it should beep and then start the registration process. If you have 6 handsets registered to your base, you will need to de-register teh non-working unit from the bases memrey before you will be able to re-register the handset.

Phones are powered but do not connect to base so can't receive or make calls. Is there a way to reset?


The manual, which can be found at: http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25952EE1_IB.pdf, reads:
4. Place the handset in the base cradle. The charge/in use indicator turns on,
verifying the battery is charging. The unit will take 20 seconds to register
and verify its security code. READY shows in the display.
NOTE: In case of a power failure, the handsets may display
UNAVAILABLE when the TALK/CALL BACK button is pressed.
You must then place all handsets on the main base cradle
for 20 seconds to re-register.
That should reset your handsets. Hope this helps :) Thank you very much.

If you are not too far away-not "out of range" then try rehoming/pairing the handset with the base unit. You probably need the phones together to do this. Your manual will explain how-it will have been done in the original setup.

Ge cordless phone station 2 shows unavailable


You have to register the hand set in the main base. Place each handset in the base for 15 seconds minimum. It will change form unavailable to Ready when it grabs the signal from the base. If the power goes out, you will have to re-register each hand set in the base before you use them again.

Have ONE phone - ONE base station - still says "PLEASE REGISTER"


With the 6.0 gig set, the phones in the box are already registered. The manual tells us how to de-register and register. You might want to consult that part of the manual.
