Phone saying no link to base


Each handset in a multi-handset phone system must be identified by the base unit. This is because most units have an intercom capability that can communicate between two handsets. If the battery of a handset dies completely or is disconnected and replaced, then base unit loses it contact with the handset. To re-establish the connectivity, you must seat the handset in the charging cradle of the base unit. Once it is identified it can be taken back to its remote location.

WHAT DOES THE READOUT =BASE= MEAN


Remote handsets must be synchronized with the base unit. The remote charging stand will not perform this function. If the handset goes dead or the battery disconnected and reconnected, you must return the handset to the base unit and cradle it so it can be identified and synchronized to the base unit.

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 hope this helps.

Hi,

Following may be the cause for getting no link to the base.

1. The handset has lost communication with the base unit.Move closer to the base unit, and try again.

2. Confirm that the base unit’s AC adaptor is plugged in.

3. Raise the base unit antenna.

4The handset’s registration may have been cancelled .Re-register the handset.

To Register, follow the below steps.

Headset: Press MENU and then press ‘0’ ‘0’

Base unit: Press and hold HANDSET LOCATOR until the CHARGE indicator flashes.

(After the CHARGE indicator starts flashing, the rest of the procedure
must be completed within 1 minute.)

Handset: Press OK, and then wait until the handset beeps.

Your handset is registered to Base unit.

Thank You

Can not rec a dial tone, phone states no link to base move closer



If “No link to base. Move closer to base, try again.” is displayed
even when using the handset near the base unit, the handset may have lost communication with the base unit. You need to re-register the handset to the base unit.
• Make sure the base unit is not being used.
• Have both handsets and base unit nearby during registration.
• Follow steps 1–3 listed below. You have about 1 minute to complete them.
• Confirm the extension number of the handset which has lost the communication by placing the handset on the base unit or charger.
If you re-register the handset using the other handset’s extension number, the other handset will not function.
• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

1 Base unit: Press and hold [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] until a beep sounds.
• The CHARGE indicator flashes.

2 Base unit: Press the extension number [1] (handset symbol 1 ) or [2] (handset symbol 2) of the
handset which has lost the communication.

3 Handset: Press and hold [FLASH/CALL WAIT] until “Handset Registering” is displayed.
• When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset and the display shows the number.
• Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete while the handset establishes communication with the base unit.


• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

Lost comunication


I solved this problem with a RESET of the handset. Instructions from the Philips website: Please perform a reset of your device. You will not loose your recorded data (phonebook and personal settings are being kept). 1. Unplug the mains of the base station. 2. Remove one of the batteries of each handset. 3. Put the batteries back in and re-plug the mains of the base station.
