Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

AT&T tells me I can't reprogram cordless handsets that were registered on a different 74108 base than I have now unless I de-register them on the original base. Is there a work around for this? Old 74108 base went dead so I threw it in trash and bought another 74108 because I had the handsets. I have 3 handsets less than 90 days old that right now are useless unless there is some way to work around this.

    The handsets can be deregistered and can be used on another base but you must have the original main base in order to do it. Press an hold the handset locator button on the Main base utill it begins to flash then release it and immediately press and release it again.. I amoment or two all the handsets would de-register. You can then re-register them on another base.

Hi,

If you run down the batteries in the system to zilch and then reset from beginning, maybe the handset will register on the base.

Fame !

How to register handset Uniden #d1685 to base #d1580? Is it Compatible or Is there any force registration to make it work?


Compatibility is doubtful: I just tried to register a
D1680 handset to a D1580 base and it failed.
Both the handset & base are "known good" but
they will not pair together.

It does not hurt to try, be sure your handset is
de-registered (hold the [END] and [ # ] keys
at the same time until the screen displays the
deregister instructions) and the battery well
charged.

Good luck!

How to register additional handset for AT&T EL52300


Easy to do, even if the new handset is used & orphaned from
its original base...simply de-register it from the old base and
re-register it to your base.

1. To de-register the orphaned handset from the old base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or "Out of..."
enter *331734 [menu]
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base and hold
it until the "in use" light comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ),
then release the button and set the new handset into
the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds it will beep
and display "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all in sequence.
( it is the only way to 'rescue' the places occupied
by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

1. Press and hold the the "Handset Locator" button
until the "in use" light lights and then starts to blink
( ~ 10 seconds ), release the button --
then press it again briefly while the "in use" light
is still blinking.

2. The base will beep and all handsets that were registered
will display "Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset
in turn to re-register them:
press "Handset Locator" ~ 4sec ( in-use light on ),
set handset into the base cradle, etc.

The manual is available from: www.manualslib.com
but does not fully describe these procedures.

Good luck !

Panasonic Phone Keeps De-Registering


This solution is for the KX-TG2356 cordless phone
The problem you are having is not that the handset is de-registering but your handset is losing the link to the main base.You said you went through 6 handsets then, the only remaining thing that could cause your problem is: A bad handset battery. This would give you all types of connection problems and the Main base.
I will begin with replacing the battery. If that does not solve your problem then the problem would be the main base

I have three handset cordless phone only the main base phone work the other two says connecting when you turn it on but it wont connect it have loss its connection with the base phone


Often the handsets must be re-registered when they won't work. Sometimes they have to be de-registered, then re-registered before getting them to work. Uniden has many different model number 5.8 GHz cordless phones, send a comment with the model number and I will give specific help on your cordless. I have included a link where Uniden cordless manuals can be downloaded if you need it.

Welcome to Fixya
Dear USer
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

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656


To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

1. Take out the handset that sits on the base.
2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.
4. Hold down PAGE key for 5 seconds. When the In Use light begins to flash, release the PAGE key.
5. The handset charging light will blink 5 times. Within 5 seconds from when it stops blinking, press PAGE once.

You must register the handset(s) by following the steps below:

1. After charging the handset, remove it from the cradle, the LCD display will read "SEARCHING FOR BASE".
2. Press "NEW" and then enter the 15-digit Base ID code, located on the underside of the VT2656 base unit.
3. Press "OK". The handset will display "PLEASE WAIT!!".
4. Wait approximately 15 seconds. The handset will display "FOUND BASE". If the handset displays "BASE BUSY TRY LATER", this indicates that the system is in use. Wait until the base unit is in the idle (on hook) mode and repeat steps 2-4.

A busy signal


Hi Kevin,

Sorry for being off line so long. If you have not fixed the problem already, I would try de-registering the handset 3 (from both the base and handset), then re-register it, it should re-register as HS 3, unless 1 and 2 are vacant. If that does not do it, de-register just the handset (not at the base), then re-register it to the base, it will grab the next sequencial intercom number. If it is still failing, then the handset is most likely defective. As a last resort, you can try initializing the handset and the base. Let me know how it goes. CG
