Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Phone says "out of range"

I have a Uniden DSS3455 with two extensions. Worked fine until one day the main phone that sits on the base won't let me answer as it says it's out of range and it's been sitting on the base the whole time or sitting on a table in front of the base. So I have been using one of the extensions instead, which works fine. Can I fix this? Thanks

I'd try pulling the battery on the phone that is out of range and letting it sit for a couple of days. Then plug the battery back in and see if the phone activates. If nothing happens then try putting it back in the charger. My guess is if it's been sitting in the charger the whole time, the battery developed a memory and thinks it's dead.

Hi i FINALLY solved this problem by taking out the batteries on the phones, and unplugging them and then putting them back in.
After 2 days of trouble shooting! So this worked! No more out of range!

Good Luck

Uniden Dect 6.0 d1384-2 display says searching


I have the uniden 3005 accessory handset that pairs with the uniden 3015. I tried all the above holding down of buttons etc. none of that worked. I finally rang uniden and the technician said to put the accessory phone on the base unit where it's connected to the phone line. This worked and the phone registered, then I returned it to its own base that it came with. Uniden need to amend their manual wording so that it reflects the above steps.

My uniden phone says - out of range


Uniden wxi477 out of range fix

This problem arises when the handset does not communicate with the base.
These are the steps:
1: Deregistering the handset
2: Registering the handset to base

Deregestering clears the stored (incorrect) base information on the handset.
Reregestering allows the base to assign a new ID for the handset.

Deregistering- press and hold the OFF (red button) and the # button on the handset for 5 seconds. select base unavailable and press OK. Are you sure appears. select yes and press OK. you will hear a confirmation tone. The handset will delete its own base information without trying to contact the base. It will now display MODELS VARY PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION.

Registering the handset with the base- Make sure the tel. line and power is plugged into the base.
Press an hold the register button under the base (located between the tel. line and yellow power socket under the base) for 5 seconds until the red light flashes. At the same time press and hold the # button on the handset for 5 secs. You will hear a tone and It will now display REGISTRATION COMPLETE.

If it says registration failed: Retry the registration steps. Make sure the handset have enough battery power. If not charge for 15-20 hrs.
Check your connections on the base and make it is getting power.

The Steps above was my fix for the uniden wxi477 out of range problem.

Good luck.

My problem is I can not phone out with my phone which is a Uniden DSS3455 it seems as if it is locked. I was changing the ringing tone when it happened I must of pressed the wrong code.


try a simple reset first. just drop the charger into the base and watch the charger light. when it flickers that has reset it. if that does not work try resetting the handset by removing the battery for about ten minutes. remember to drop it into the base after you have put the battery back in to sync it with the base. if neither of those methods work which they should... unplug the base for about ten minutes.... make sure you also unplug the phone line as well. after it has reset plug it all back in and place the handset into the base again for a few seconds

Cannot recieve or send calls. Uniden cordless phone, Out of Range


Hello,
If you are too far from the base, or the battery is low, or there are too many thick walls (concrete or other) the signal the base brodcasts will not be strong enough when it reaches the receiver.
Put the base in a place that has a line of sight view (not may walls in between) of the area where you use the phone.
You can also use an extension cord to have the base close.
Hope it helps.
