I can get a dial tone if i disconnect from the splitter and move it to another location but then my computer doesn't work....HELP.

    My phones all say out of range! i have tried deregistering them and reseting them with the main base but they are still not working. I bought the original base with 2 handsets about a year ago and just added another handset recently, before it all stopped working. Very disapointed.

    My Uniden phones worked ok for about 1 month. Now all three in the set say "Out of Range". Nothing I've tried has worked. Maybe the base unit transceiver is fried.

    We have a twin Uniden set. The phones are 18 months old. We arrived home after 2 days away, to find the base phone says "out of range". I've unplugged and replugged, checked batteries, cleaned the terminals etc., but nothing has changed. We can't receive or make calls from it. The other one is fine.
    Is it fixable?

  • tooltime63 Mar 02, 2009

    In the middle of calls the phone beeps & says "Out of range". This is with the unit 3 feet from the base! Most times I can flash over a couple of times & reconnect with my call but occassionally I just lose the call & have to redial. What a rip off!

  • Anonymous May 06, 2009

    Once one of my phones displayed Out of Range, after some time I disconnected the battery and replaced it, all fixed. Now several months later all my phones are doing it, and there seems to be nothing I can do.. I've tried everything here with no success. Guess I'll be chosing another brand next time..

  • Anonymous May 08, 2009

    I also have t he same out of range problem and the manual is not helpfull in the least since I the hand set is only 2 to 3 feet away from the base amd most of the time on the base. Uniden has changed their contact hours which does not help us in the Pacific Time Zone. I work and when I can call them I am within a half hour of needing to leave and I get off work when they close. I can't sit on the phone all day at work until I get a person to help me. What is the solution here? I am about ready to chuck all Uniden products from the future buying because of the lack of help.

  • kookaburra02 Jun 20, 2012

    Could be caused by the way the phone handset is held, ie don't put your hand over the back of the phone/antenna, hold it lower down. See http://www.uniden.com.au/RESOURCES_MAIN/... There is a diagram after the following text: Keep the antenna free of obstruction.
    When the handset is not in use place the handset in an upright position.
    Do not hold the handset where you would block the signal.
    Hope this helps.

Ok. My problem was that the main phone and answering machine worked fine, but the second handset kept saying, "Out of range" no matter what I did. If I tried to make a call, it would say, "Connecting...", but after a while, "Out of range".

I followed the manual which offers two mechanisms to deregister the phone. The first method (press Menu soft key...) went through the motions and then said, "Out of range"!

The second method in the manual worked - after I worked out what the instructions mean!

So here's the answer:

Take the phone out of the cradle (charger). Press and hold simultaneously for more than 5 seconds the red telephone-symbol key and the # key.

You will hear a confirmation tone and DEREGISTRATION COMPLETE appears.

Now go to the OTHER phone (the MAIN phone). Take it out of its cradle and put the deregistered second handset in the MAIN cradle. The window displays a few messages and then REGISTRATION COMPLETE.

After that, for me, everything worked.

(Put each phone back in its normal cradle.)

Ok I TOO have suffered from the "Out of range" problem with the Uniden 5.8 Ghz cordless phone (with 3 bases). The "Out of Range" appears on all 3 phones. The phones are not Out of range, this problem has occurred one other time. Thank heaven for other people posting their problems (Dr Tech :)) Although there are some posts that state unplugging the battery and/or the power cord works, it did not for me. Here's what DID work.

First: Deregister the phone. Hold the red end button down and the # button at the same time for about 5-8 seconds or until it beeps and says

    Then select deregister, then select base unavailable if asked. It will then deregister and say place handset on base to register. This is where I got confused. It doesn't say which base. I made the mistake of placing it on it's own base, no wonder it kept saying registration failed. Place any unregistered phone on the MAIN BASE to register. It will do it's thing then it will say registration complete.

  • Susan Sigrest Aug 07, 2011

    Yes, this worked, but all I had to do was hold down the end button and # at the same time - it automatically deregistered, then I put in base, and it registered! Wow, finally!

I tried all of the deregistration/registration steps unsuccessfully. Finally, just unplugging and re-plugging the power cord to the main base fixed the problem. An unbelievably frustrating process, to be sure!

(remove cover, unplug battery, while holding down * & # keys, plug in battery, then let keys go. Now press top right 3rd soft key below LCD display and reset eeprom. Place in base and re-register. If you get 'Registration Failed' then press End & # together until it says 'Registered'. Otherwise, you may have to get it repaired/replaced according to Uniden).

My phone was brand new out of the box and had the "out of range" error on both handsets. I read thru these suggestions and began by choosing "System Reset" as instructed. This did not work on its own so I tried to "deregister" the handsets. This didn't work either!!!

Out of frustration I took the batteries out of the handsets and once I replaced the batteries and put the handset back in the cradle, everything reset itself and they are all working fine now.

PHEW!!

I had 'Out of Range' issues for my second Uniden WDECT 3355 +2 handset. Every time I hit the 'talk' button, it would display 'Out of Range' on the screen. Here's what I did (in order):

  1. De-registered the second handset (System Reset > Deregister HS)
  2. De-registered the first main handset (see Step 1 for method)
  3. Use the 'Replacing Base' function on the first main handset (System Reset > Replace Base)
  4. Place the first main handset on the main base, it should register automatically.
  5. Use the 'Replacing Base' function on the second handset (System Reset > Replace Base)
  6. Place the second handset on the main base, it should register automatically.

Press the Hand Set (HS) button on the main base which causes your phone to beep loudly. Then pick up the phone, press "Talk" to stop the beeping and you're all set again. This will get rid of the "Out of Range" and "Searching" mode and you will be able to use your phone again.

How do I turn on my speakerphone for my Uniden EXP4540?


Sorry, Uniden EXP4540 2.4 GHz does not have a speaker phone feature. The cordless phone features AutoTalk™ and AutoStandby™. AutoTalk™ allows you to answer a call by just removing the handset from the base so you don't have to waste time pushing buttons. AutoStandby™ allows you to hang up by simply returning the handset to the base. You can check it's manual with this link http://www.uniden.com/pdf/EXP4540om.pdf.

I get a message hand-set not in range. No charge light. Hook up appears OK. Second home phone works properly. Prior to problem I tried to dial a local no. but entered 8 nos. Phone says searching or...


Dialing the 8 numbers should not cause a problem.I have a few suggestions,you may have tried a couple already.Hang up the problem phone on the base unit for about 30 seconds.If that does not help,remove the battery for a few seconds and try the 30 second hang up again.Try unplugging the base unit for a half minute.I am trying to get it to reset itself and link to the base.Is the second phone part of this system too?We had a Uniden and I personally thought it ended up being garbage and will probably never buy another one.If you end up deciding to buy a new phone,the new technology is DECT 6.0 and is supposed to have better range from the base,clearer sound to name a few things.The strange thing about it is that it operates at 1.9 GHz.Also,if you decide on a new one,google DECT phones.There are all kinds of forums about peoples opinions/ratings of ones they have bought and used for a period of time.If you have any questions,just comment on this post and I will get an auto email saying you posted.Good luck!

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.

Handset No2 displays out of range message


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.

Phone won't hang up


I solved this exactly problem by doing this:
1) unplug base station from phone line
2) unplug base station from power cube
3) open each phone and disconnect battery (do not replace phone in charger; just let it sit)
4) wait 30 minutes (per instructions from Uniden)
5) reconnect batteries in phone sets
6) reconnect power cube to base station
7) reconnect base station to phone line
8) test: make a call. Hang up. Wait one minute. Pick up line and see if you get a dial tone.
(Basically you're "rebooting" the system. You don't know where the fault lies, so you power down every component to make sure you get it. The '30 minutes' is longer than I'm used to, but after being on hold with Uniden tech support for 20 minutes and finally getting through, the instructions from them were very clear: AT LEAST 30 minutes. OK! I did it - and it worked!)
