Welcome to Fixya
Place your Extension Phone Near to Main for Few times Until it Beeps.OR it Ask for Registration like Please Register or Something like that.Follow the Steps carefully to Register it...Then Check it for Dial tone to Confirm.Some phones may display that the handset needs to be registered. If this appears-Move the handset near to base/main unit & press the "Prog/Mute". Next, press the "Pager" button on the base unit .Then press the "Prog/Mute" button on the handset again to complete the registration.
Hope you got it....Thanks for Connecting FixYa
This is from the instructions at GE's site for the model 28110 (you said 2810, which isn't found):
Press the mute/program button. Hold BASE PAGE for 5 seconds, then PRESS HANDSET PROGRAM shows in the display. (Your handset should be held near the base during registration process.)
Press and hold the page button on the base unit until the charge/in use indicator flashes. Press the handset mute/program button. REGISTERING shows in the display. HANDSET X REGISTERED shows in the handset display, where X is the handset number
The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base
also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.
the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the
base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset.
All this requires that the base and handset can communicate with each
To remove the base data from a handset when out of range
of the base, press and hold the ‘end’ button and the ‘#’ button
simultaneously until the phone beeps. It will now be de-registered from
However, the base will still have this handset in it’s record.
de-register all handsets from the base, remove power and the base
handset. Press and hold the ‘flash/find hs’ button while applying
power. Wait for the beep and release the button. The charge light will
now flash. Sit any handset in the cradle. When the flashing stops, all
handsets are inhibited from connecting.
However, the handset
still appears to be connected to the base unit. Pressing talk will give
an ‘Unable to connect’ message. To re-register the handsets to the
base, you have to de-register the handset first with the two button
Of interest, pressing ‘*’ and ‘#’ on the handset while
reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the
same on the base unit puts you in some sort of diagnostic mode. Press
speaker to exit.
Resetting the base & handset/s on a BT Freelance XD5500:
Hold the Find button on the base unit until you get a double beep then tap the Find button 7 times. On the handset: remove a battery hold the menu key and refit the battery screen says SW VERSION press up arrow key until screen shows REGISTER CLEAR press menu press menu again and wait for OK to appear remove a battery and refit
Registering the XD5500 handset. Then register the handset to the base as follows: Hold Find button on base unit until you get two beeps On handset: Press menu Scroll to register Press menu Scroll to Register Base Press menu Press 1 Wait When it says PIN ? Enter 0 0 0 0 (four zeros) and press menu.
Note: If you have more than one handset then repeat registering the handset to the base for each subsequent handset/phone.
If this procedure fails to solve the issue, then you have a unit with a fault and if it is less than a year since purchase the retailer should change it for you.
IF it was a used handset it was likely registered to another base. I just switched bases (1line to a 2 line base). I had to "deregister" the handsets from the old base. I am not sure if you can deregister if the old base is not present? With the old base plugged into power I hit the "function key" at the bottom left of the handset and scrolled down to initial settings. Under registration is "deregistration". I selected that and it put the handset back to its default out of the box. Then simply hit the mute button on the New base and OK on the handset. Worked for all 5 of my old handsets.
i faced a similar problem.try doing this 1) go to handset menu & somewhere u wil find registration 2)it wil ask for pin , try 5555 or 0000 3)it wil display waiting for reg or searching...... 4) press the base station button for some 5 seconds until it beeps continuosly & stops.... 5) as beep stops press 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 in handset ( no. of hanset handled by base)...try all possibilities ( sometimes takes automatically if u dont press any number) 6) thats it....... email@example.com
I would assume this could have been a product that was returned to the company that you purchased it from. Follow these instructions.
1. 1. Disconnect power from the base by pulling the plug out of the back of the unit.
2. Press and hold the Page button and while holding the Page button reconnect the power.
3. Continue to hold the Page button until the charge/in use light flashes rapidly.
4. Release the Page button.
5. Press and release the page button on the base once. All handsets are de-registered and
HANDSET NEEDS REGISTRATION shows in the display.
From the Handset Setup Menu:
1. Press the caller ID-volume ( 6 or 5) button to scroll to the REGISTRATION sub-menu.
2. Press the mute/program button to enter the menu. REGISTRATION 1YES 42NO - - -shows
in the display. The default setting is 2NO.
3. Use the touch-tone pad to select 1 for YES or 2 for NO. Or use the caller ID-volume ( 6 or
5) button to scroll to 1YES or 2NO.
4. If you select YES, press the mute/program button. HOLD BASE PAGE FOR 5 SECONDS, THEN
PRESS HANDSET PROGRAM shows in the display. (Your handset should be held near the
base during registration process.)
5. Press and hold the page button on the base unit until the charge/in use indicator flashes.
Press the handset mute/program button. REGISTERING shows in the display. HANDSET X
REGISTERED shows in the handset display, where X is the handset number. You may now
rename your handset. (Refer to Step 3 & 4 of Handset Name Section)
NOTE: IF you are re-registering the handset through the handset menu;
to rename your handset you must go to the Handset Name Section and
start from the beginning step.
I understand that you have tried the registation process. Sometimes with electronics, you have to start from ground 0, before it will work correct again.
