Unable to register TCX905 handset to base unit TRU9496

I too bought an original TRU9496 with one handset. I then bought 2 extra handsets TCX905 and am unable to register them. I removed the battery cover, verified that I actually purchased the TCX905 but am still unable to register.

SOURCE: Uniden handset TCX905 with base unit TRU8866-if compatible?

Forget what I said before, the TCX905 does NOT fit into the TRU 8866 base unit with the battery cover on.

 

REMOVE THE BATTERY COVER TO REGISTER THE TCX905 WITH THE TRU8866 and everything works fine....

SOURCE: Handset Fails to Register

It is quite possible that you'll need to go into the menu settings on your base-unit and reset the unit or restore factory default, whichever option it gives you. Also, look in the menu on the phone to see if there is an option to reset the handset also. After resetting the unit and/or handsets, try to register the handsets again, one at a time. If that still does not fix the problem, you may have handsets that are not compatible with your system, or your system may not be able to support that many phones. However, if you have the right handsets, and your system can host that many handsets, then I'm confident that resetting the unit and re-registering your handsets should fix your problem.
Hope this helps! Have a nice day!

I just successfully registered 4 TCX905s with my TRU8865 base - it's documented in the TCX905 manual.

Be sure the handset you want to register is fully charged.

Remove the handset you want to register from its charger.

Now unplug the AC for the main base, hold down the 'find handset' key on the base and plug the AC in again, when it beeps, you can let go of that button.

Hold down the '#' on the handset you want to register, it will show 'Registering Handset...' and when it beeps, it's done - registered, you're good to go :)

SOURCE: Unable to register handset TWX955 Series

I have a TRU9585 Base.

On the BASE press menu/select, scroll down to register handset using the button to the right of the display, and press select. The LED on the base will flash quickly.

Now pick up the TWX955 handset (the one that won't register), and press and hold # until it registers.

Worked for me.

What happened is you have deregistered your handset from the tru9488 base. To correct this, you must register that handset with the base. See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/185023/Uniden-Tru9488.html?page=24 for short and sweet instructions for doing this, reproduced below:.

Hand set tcx905 will not register on uniden base tru8866


Remove the plastic battery cover from the handset (but keep the a battery connected), then place the handset on the base. That will enable the metal contacts at the bottom of the handset to touch the ones on the bottom of the base.

I have a tcx905s handset that will not register to my tru9496 base. Uniden claimed that 905s units will work with this base. However, they said that refurbished units will not work. Is this true?


Not sure about the refurbish issue...but have you tried to de-register the handset by holding down the end key and the # key, then placing on the main base unit to register with your system.

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.

Uniden TCX905 cCordess phone Handsets # 3 and 4


If the handsets are not currently registered to any base, the SYSTEM RESET menu won't appear.

If the TCX905 handsets in question are actually expansion handsets from another Uniden Phone System, they are not true TCX905 handsets. To verify, remove the battery cover and battery, then look at the inside label. If it lists the model of a TRU9xxx phone system, your handsets are NOT TCX905.

Uniden unfortunately has programmed the expansion handsets from SINGLE LINE TRU9xxx phone systems to NOT REGISTER against the TRU9466. (Those same handsets register fine against predecessor model TRU8866 though).

Tru 9496


SOLUTION:

1. First, remove the battery cover on your unregistered TCX905 and look under the battery to confirm that you indeed purchased a TCX905 because some Uniden handsets were packaged as 905's but were not.

2. Take the fully charged unregistered 905 to the base unit TRU9496.

3. On the TRU 9496 base unit press "Menu" then select "Registration" and press OK

4. You should get the message "press the # key on the remote handset".

5. Depress the "#" key on the unregistered 905 and it should register.
