The "END" and "#" key combination can be used for several purposes:

1) If wanting to use an ALREADY REGISTERED HANDSET on an alternate base, and if if the INITIAL BASE isn't available to deregister the handset:

1a) Press "END" + "#" until it for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
1b) Choose the "Base Unavailable" option
1c) That'll deregister the CURRENT HANDSET so that it can be re-registered on ANY base.

2) If a BASE has a handset registered to it which you no longer want registered but the registered handset is missing or broken:

2a) Grab another WORKING handset which is properly REGISTERED to the BASE in question
2b) Press and hold the "END" + "#" key for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
2c) Choose the "Deregister HS" menu option
2d) Pick the REGISTERED HANDSET # to de-register. (Every other registered handset EXCEPT THE ONE YOU'RE ON will appear in the list!)

    On the TCX905 handset, the "END" key is the RED "HANG UP CALL" button.

I need to deregister a DS6101 without the base. I needed to replace the base and once we installed the new base, the extra handset that we had registered with our old base shows the following message...


Called the manufactuer.... To do this enter on the handset you want to deregister:

*331734# and press (Menu Key# 1 - top uppermost left button that is unmarked).


This will put the handset back into the register mode.



Hope this helps,

I need to deregister missing handset #1


To de-register HANDSET #1:

1) Grab any working handset which is registered to your base (so HANDSET #2 or #3 in your case)

2) Press and hold the "END" + "#" key for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)

3) Choose the "Deregister HS" menu option

4) Pick HANDSET #1 as the handset ot de-register (since that's the "phantom" registered handset)

5) Once de-registered, you can de-register handsets #2 and #3 directly from each handset's "normal" menu interface (i.e. press "Menu", choose "Deregistration")

6) Thereafter, if you re-register your handset, they should start at HANDSET #1, then #2, and so on.

We had Uniden model TRU8866. Handset #2 was damaged and lost. We purchased a new phone through Uniden. It says Set #4 on it. We would like it to say #2 The new phone is a Power max5.8ghz.


In order to re-register handsets with TRU8866 base unit, you have to reset the base unit, de-register the handsets, and then re-register the handsets. To reset the base station, disconnect the power from the base and then press and hold the CID, Intercom, and Exit keys while you connect the power. Wait for the beep, and let go of the keys. Now re-register the handsets - the first one will become #1, and so on.

Deregister lost or broken phones


Some tricks from a helpful Uniden rep:

holding down end+# keys at the same time on the phone for about 10 secs (you will hear a beep) will deregister the handset. If you have a dead handset and want to deregister it from the base, you have to reset the base. unplug the phoneline and power. hold down the "delete message" key, plug power back in. about 10 secs later, you will hear a long beep (theres a short beep upon powerup as well). At this point all handsets are deregistred and you will have to reregister them with the end+# trick. this way when #1 handset is dead, you can make a working one #1 and get the broken one fixed emotion-1.gif

BTW, this is a woot warranty, not uniden warranty. however the uniden rep gave me the number to the people who refurb (rox0rz!) these. I'll post an update when I finally get ahold of them (and the number if its actually helpful)

Tru9466 base and tru9465-2 handset


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.

DeRegistering a Damaged Cordless Phone???!!!!


I have a Panasonic KX-TG6700 base unit and KX-TGA670B handsets. We had a similar problem where we were no longer able to deregister the handset using the handset itself. We wanted to be able to use that slot that the broken phone was still occupyng. The solution that we found in the manual online was to hold down the intercom button for 3 seconds until the "in use" light turned on. Then press and hold the number of the extension you want to deregister until it beeps. At this point the base unit has freed that extension.

Uniden handset TCX905 with base unit TRU8866-if compatible?


I just successfully registered 4 TCX905s with my TRU8865 base - it's documented in the TCX905 manual.

Be sure the handset you want to register is fully charged.

Remove the handset you want to register from its charger.

Now unplug the AC for the main base, hold down the 'find handset' key on the base and plug the AC in again, when it beeps, you can let go of that button.

Hold down the '#' on the handset you want to register, it will show 'Registering Handset...' and when it beeps, it's done - registered, you're good to go :)
