When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.
If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.
Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.
If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.
I followed these steps that were listed, but it didn't work. Then I increased the time in step to an hour, and it worked
I called GE support. I was told
1. unplug power from base
2. unplug phone connection from base
3. remove cover and battery from handset
4. wait 10 minutes
5. put battery back, reattach phone connection and power
First, you have to have batteries in the phone in order to view the LCD screen without the headset lifted. Push "SET" then plus sign (+) on the key pad; the last two digits of the year will flash, press the "UP"or "DOWN" putton on the phone to get to the correct year then push "SET" again. The phone will then move to set the month (M); repeat the same functions for the month. Each time you push "SET" it will move to the next item to be set (i.e. day (D), hour, minute, etc.). All other features can be set the same way. *** NOTE: Pushing "SET" switch through the features; 1 = DATE, 2 = ACODE, 3 = FLASH, 4 = LCD, 5 = ALARM, 6 = P-7 (TONE/PULSE), 7 = IPP, 8 = SPEECH. I how this helps.
phones not working people are trying to call they tell me there getting a busy signal and cant get through me. I have three motorola E51 cordless phones and they are showing parallel set on the lcd screen how can i get my phones back working
Your phone did expirence a surge that probably blew the ac adaptor which happens most of the time, u can buy one of those universal adaptors and look on the back of the old adaptor for the output voltage it will usually read between 3 and 8 volts DC.Set the universal adAptor voltage to the setting right below the voltage output on the back of the ac adaptor.
this is a common problem with iDCS phones (falcon) sometimes all you have to do is unplug the phone from the wall for a minute and the reconnect it. If this does'nt work, the display is probably bad. The is no programming that will turn the display off.
1) The LCD screen is cracked from a fall or hit etc.. It can be visible or a small crack hidden on and edge or corner, only visible after taking out the display.
2) The phone was exposed to moisture or high humidity long enough for corrosion to start. This could have happened many months ago. The corrosion has finally effected the LCD. If you're up to disassembling the phone you can clean the LCD connector with rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush as well as clean the LCD cable itself with a pencil eraser. Typically the LCD is held in with a little 2-color connector that you open with a tiny screwdriver or other tool by carefully prying off each side of the connector a little bit. (1-2mm) when you are done just slide the lcd connector in all the way and push the connector back in.
3) It's unlikely but the LCD can just stop working. It's not worth paying $30 to $50 for a new one. Just replace the phone.
