Re: Registration

I am not sure if this is the same model as my phone, but I pressed the exit button and then pressed the select button. The display says something like, hold Base Page button, so do that, then the phone will beep, let you type in a handset name, and you are set to go.

There is a message "Searching" on the phone, How do I get it back to working.

"System Reset, Deregister Handset"

I cant dial out it says register HS i am not familiar with the procedure.

When you reset a handset (or if you buy a new one1, that handset displays a Handset Not Registered message. If you see this message on a handset, you need to register it to a base before you can use it.
Registering a handset
Does the handset fit in the base cradle?
Place the handset in the base.
The display should say Handset Registering.
1. On the base, open the menu and select Register Handset. The display should say Handset Registering.
2. On the handset you want to register, press and hold # until the handset display says Handset Registering (about 2 seconds).
In about 30 seconds, the handset display should say Registration Complete. Press TALK ( )/FLASh and make sure you get a dial tone. page29image32024
- you don't hear a dial tone- the display says Registration Failed
Making sure the handset is fully charged, then start over at step 1.
To register a handset to a different base, see the section "Expanding Your phone" in the user's guide for the other base.

On the screen of the phone says not registered and wont allow me to make phone calls or recieve

Please try the following procedure to register the handset:
  1. Place the unregistered handset in the telephone base. If PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the handset screen after a few seconds, remove the handset and place it in the telephone base again.
  2. On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for about four seconds (until the red IN USE light on the telephone base turns on) and then release the button. The handset shows PLEASE WAIT... and it takes up to 60 seconds to complete the registration. The handset shows HANDSET X REGISTERED (X represents the handset number assigned) and you hear a beep when the registration completes.
When the registration is complete, the newly registered handset is assigned the next available handset registration number. For instance, if you already have HANDSET 1 and HANDSET 2, the next registered handset will be HANDSET 3

Can not rec a dial tone, phone states no link to base move closer

If “No link to base. Move closer to base, try again.” is displayed
even when using the handset near the base unit, the handset may have lost communication with the base unit. You need to re-register the handset to the base unit.
• Make sure the base unit is not being used.
• Have both handsets and base unit nearby during registration.
• Follow steps 1–3 listed below. You have about 1 minute to complete them.
• Confirm the extension number of the handset which has lost the communication by placing the handset on the base unit or charger.
If you re-register the handset using the other handset’s extension number, the other handset will not function.
• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

1 Base unit: Press and hold [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] until a beep sounds.
• The CHARGE indicator flashes.

2 Base unit: Press the extension number [1] (handset symbol 1 ) or [2] (handset symbol 2) of the
handset which has lost the communication.

3 Handset: Press and hold [FLASH/CALL WAIT] until “Handset Registering” is displayed.
• When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset and the display shows the number.
• Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete while the handset establishes communication with the base unit.

• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

LCD Screen says ''2 missed calls''

The "[1]" (or other number) in the upper right is the number of the extension. If you have more than one extension, they will each have their own number. Unfortunately, I can't anwer your other question as I have the same problem myself.
