Most multiphone sets need to have the phones hung up on the same base all the time. They are set up as set 1 and set 2 etc. Look in the screen, it should say which is 1 and 2. 1 is always the main base. Try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes. It sometimes takes that long for the equipment to reset itself.

Try disconnecting the base from the power supply. Then take the battery out. wait a few minues, then plug baack in and reinsert the battery, and it should work. You might have to reset the date and time. \check the V-Tech site for instructions.Good luck. cherriwh
Dialing the 8 numbers should not cause a problem.I have a few suggestions,you may have tried a couple already.Hang up the problem phone on the base unit for about 30 seconds.If that does not help,remove the battery for a few seconds and try the 30 second hang up again.Try unplugging the base unit for a half minute.I am trying to get it to reset itself and link to the base.Is the second phone part of this system too?We had a Uniden and I personally thought it ended up being garbage and will probably never buy another one.If you end up deciding to buy a new phone,the new technology is DECT 6.0 and is supposed to have better range from the base,clearer sound to name a few things.The strange thing about it is that it operates at 1.9 GHz.Also,if you decide on a new one,google DECT phones.There are all kinds of forums about peoples opinions/ratings of ones they have bought and used for a period of time.If you have any questions,just comment on this post and I will get an auto email saying you posted.Good luck!

I have a GE DECT 6.0 Digital phone (silver, 2-handset model) and one of the handsets began displaying "Out of Range" and was unresponsive. We've had severe lightning around here in recent days which interfered with the digital tv reception, so I'm pretty sure that's what caused the problem. Here was what worked for me:
- unplug base unit for 15 seconds - press "PROGRAM" button on handset - from menu, select "HANDSET SETUP" - from menu, select "REGISTRATION" - handset display will prompt you to press and hold PAGE button on base unit for 5 seconds, then press "PROGRAM" button on handset
This action re-initiates the transmission between the base unit and the handset.
The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone: 1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.
After trying all the technician's suggestions had failed; I disconnected the base to return it to the store for replacement. Then I decided to try disconnecting and reconnecting power and phone line, placed handset back on base and the phone reset itself and is working fine...
Disconnect power and phone line from base for about 30 seconds and reconnect both power and phone line to base and place handset back on base; it should reset...
does the oven respond to any controls??? or is it dead??? if it responds, id try to restart a clean cycle, this will attempt to lock the door if it does, then in a few seconds cancel the cycle and the door should unlock. or you can can try to disconnect the power to the unit for a few min and upon restoring power the first thing most ranges do is to self check there latches.
Had same problem, answered AMOST completely by the owner's manual, which you can find here:
I recommend these steps in this order:
1. Try unplugging the base set for 30 seconds, then plugging it in again.
2. If that doesn't work, these steps come from the manual:
• Check both ends of the base telephone line cord.
• Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into the base and wall outlet.
• Disconnect the AC adapter for a few minutes, and then reconnect it.
• Remove the base ID (see "Replacing the Base Setting" on page 27) and register the handset
(see "Register the Handset to the Base" on page 50).
• Make sure that you are not too far from the base.
• If an outside call is already established, you can not be able to make another outside call.
3. If at any point you get the "Registration failed" message when inserting a phone into the cradle, try unplugging the base for 30 seconds again.
4. If your situation is like mine, you'll probably want to get new batteries, which is what started the whole problem.
Your phone may have lost registration to the base.
1) Try disconnecting the power to the base and then re-connecting the power with the cordless phone in the base. Give it a few seconds, then see if it works.
2) Try removing the battery, wait 10 seconds, re-install the battery and set the phone in the charger.
