Re: Can't get handset to register

Panasonic manual says hit the Intercom button and when the "OK" thing comes on the LCD screen, push the button underneath the OK.

Re: Can't get handset to register

Hold down the page button after you enter the system pin - must be done within 3 minutes of entering the pin - and voila!

Re: Can't get handset to register

I don't have the same phone but what worked for mine (Uniden 646) was to place the handset in the charger built into the base unit.

How to register 2 Bell Cordless handsets on 2 bases?

Multiple handsets registered to one base works well.
The extra base can be used as a remote charging
dock without registering a handset.

Trying to register a handset to two bases is neither
possible nor useful.

Good luck!

OTOH, the specific model number was
not given. While I have never heard of
registering a handset to more than one base,
nor made it happen by accident, maybe we
all do "...learn something new everyday...".

What is the specific model number, and the
date of manufacture ? Thanks! a r t

Display keeps saying 'searching'

I don't have this model but I have had two Siemens phone systems. Typically, when the handset says "Searching" it is trying to connect to the base station (the part actually connected to the phone line). This can happen if the handset is too far from the base station to connect to it wirelessly. It can also happen if the handset has become unregistered from the base station (or was never registered to begin with). If the distance issue is not the problem, look in your documentation for how to register the handset and give that a try.

My Siemens gigaset A 490 cordless phone is showing Register HS what i have to do pl advise

To register the Gigaset handset, you need to have the handset near the base. Press and hold the Register/Paging button on the base for 3+ seconds (it's hidden by the handset when on the base). A shorter press of the button will activate the Paging feature. Then within 60 seconds of pressing the Register button on the base, press Menu and select Settings. Press OK and go to Handset. Press OK and then select Register HS. Enter the base PIN (default is 0000) and then press OK. (Use the up/down arrows to navigate the menus.) You will see Registering flash on the display of the handset for approximately 1 minute while the registration is processed.

The manual for the Gigaset A490 is available here: . If you need it in another language (or country), start here: .

I hope this helps.

Bought a spare 3111 handset and cant connect it to my base. it looks as if it was connected to another base at one time. screen just says "connecting..." and there is nothing I can do to clear...

The handset must be registered to the base unit if the system has multiple handset ability, the manual will tell how to register the handset. If the system is a two handset system then only two handsets can be registered.

Keeps going back to Register HS

Thats because there are too many handsets registered to base OR it can't find the base. Did you set it to register then pressed the little tab in on the bottom of the base? You have to hold tab down and keep phone close to base (a foot or so). If handset goes out of reg mode, you have to put it back in, then quickly press base tab down again before it stops.

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.

My siemens 4010 cordless phone is saying "Base Search" recently

"Base Search" will display for several reasons.
  1. The base station is turned off or not working properly.
  2. The handset is not registered.
  3. The handset may be registered somewhere else, de-register it.
  4. The units (both base and handset/s) may need to be reset to factory default.
You may have already tried this.

Adding new expansion handset

You will need to register it to your base station before it will work. You do so by holding down the registration/page key on the bottom of your base for a couple of seconds, and then grab your SL30 and push Menu, scroll down to the option of Handset settings, press OK, then scroll to "registration" and push OK, select base station 1, press OK, then enter the default pin of 0000 and press ok. Repeat these steps if first not successful. You can download a manual for free on our website at
