You may need to set the handset in the base for 30 seconds. Press the page/find button on the base, if you have one on your model.

You should also verify that you have power to your base. Make sure that it is the base, and not an extra charger, if you have more than one phone!

Good luck!

My phone keeps blinking and it says on the headset that the base is out of range. It is not the batteries.

Recently happened to me on my uniden I pulled the batteries from the handset and let it set for the day while I went to work.

When I got home I reset the base then reinstalled the battery tested all set

My phone keeps saying searching. have unplugged it, taken batteries out but it still says searching. what do I need to do?

It's searching for the base station. If you don't have a base station, your phone cannot work. If you have a base station, make sure it's plugged in.

My phone chirps and keeps saying lo battery. I changed the batteries and it still says lo battery. What can I do now.

I'm not sure how your phone question got into this category, but I can tell you some things to check. I'm assuming that the new battery you refer to is a battery pack, and that we're talking about a home phone, not a cell phone. Ensure that the base for the phone is plugged into an active outlet that is not controlled by a wall switch (test the outlet with a tester or plug-in lamp). Also make sure that you don't leave the phone off its base for extended periods of time as my wife is prone to doing! The base is the charger; most phones will only go for a few hours even with a new battery. If everything else is right, try swapping batteries with a known good phone, or if that's not possible, exchange the battery. You might be able to have the battery tested at a place like Batteries + as is not unheard of to get a bad one even when brand new.

My handset keeps saying out of range or searching

Don't be mad, but you need to check to see if the home base is plugged in first.

Phone says searching for base continueusly

I assumed that phone was working before,and recently doing this...
this warning normally comes when the battery is too low to be connected to base.
.please charge it couple hours ,than it should be corrected.
If it gives the same warning after charge,you might need to replace the battery..

Why wont my phone work just keeps saying searching all the time,my phone is a binatone icarus 2020

If this is a cordless home phone, then it's likely that something in the base unit got fried. I've had 3 different sets of phones die the same way, usually after a thunderstorm. Not worth fixing. Easier & cheaper to replace.

Handsets are saying searching can not use the phone

This is a portable home telelphone. I removed the batteries, waited a few minutes, and replaced the SAME batteries. Now the phone works perfectly. Maybe it needed to be reset?

Phone says searching

The battery may be weak. Or it is too far from the base. Try exchanging the two. take the handset near the base and see if it will link.
