Re: registering

Check the battery connection.  I know you've connected and put the battery into its compartment.  But very likely, the connection is loose.  Make sure you press the wire completely into the socket.  I had this problem.

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

You might try to de-register the handset and re-register
it to the base. Be sure the handset's battery is well
charged, a weak battery can impede the registration.

( I ) To de-register the errant handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time until the screen displays
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
2. press [select]
3. scroll to "Base Unavailable"
4. press [select]
5. display says "Not Registered"

( II ) To register the handset to the base:

1. open the base display's [menu]
2. scroll to "Register Accy."
3. press [select]
4. on the handset, press and hold [ # ] until
the handset display says "Registering"
5. In ~30 seconds, handset display will say
"Registration Complete" or
"Registration Failed".

This is described on page 22 of the manual.

Good luck!

Can not register handset

The handset must be de-registered before it can be registered.
Try this:

1. To de-register the handset from another base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or
"Out of Range..."
enter *331734 [menu]
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base and hold
it until the "in use" light comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ),
then release the button and set the new handset into
the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds it will beep
and display "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all in sequence.
( it is the only way to 'rescue' the places occupied
by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

1. Press and hold the the "Handset Locator" button
until the "in use" light lights and then starts to blink
( ~ 10 seconds ), release the button --
then press it again briefly while the "in use" light
is still blinking.

2. The base will beep and all handsets that were registered
will display "Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset
in turn to re-register them:
press "Handset Locator" ~ 4sec ( in-use light on ),
set handset into the base cradle, etc.

The manual is available from:
but does not fully describe these procedures.

Good luck !

I have purchased a SL82318 Handset. I have a SL82318 system, with all three original handsets working perfectly. This fourth handset displays: "Connecting..." and nothing else. According to...

*331734#Menu Select on the handset should de-register that handset from the old base, then you can register it to the base as per the manual (put it in the base and hold down the handset locator button for 4 seconds)

I need help with handset registration on uniden 1588

not sure if you have already got a solution for this problem as it was also listed in the Premium section until a few hours ago.

You must ensure each handset is charged for atleast 20 hours.

Best to de-register each handset first. Follow the menu on base or handset to select de-register.

Then follow the registration process for each handset using the menu function.

Hope it works this time.

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.

Handset won't work

I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.
