Uniden DSS7955 Cordless phone problems

I purchased the phone yesterday, charged for 24 hours; set date, time, tried to register the handset. It shows handset #1 after charging 24 hours, Plugged phone into phone line; the base worked on speaker phone mode, but the handset wouldn’t communicate with the base. Tried to deregister the handset but it always says “out of range” . the handset is fully charged and shows full battery charged icon. Wanted to bring the set back to the shop but lost the receipt.

I’d be thankful if you could let me know how to get the handset work.

I had the same problem!

What you need to do is hold the "end" and "#" key for 5 sec, which will deregister the headset then all you would have to do is place it back in the base for it to registered again.

I need help with handset registration on uniden 1588

not sure if you have already got a solution for this problem as it was also listed in the Premium section until a few hours ago.

You must ensure each handset is charged for atleast 20 hours.

Best to de-register each handset first. Follow the menu on base or handset to select de-register.

Then follow the registration process for each handset using the menu function.

Hope it works this time.

The Uniden XDECT7055 Owner's Manual is unclear regarding setting up the day/time. When I go to the MENU/SELECT function and scroll down, the date/time is not one of the functions offers to set. The only...

Phoned Uniden - durrgggh - had the same problem - simple solution - advised them to improve the manual - is totally not clear!!!!
As below:
  • Day and time must be set in 12hr times - not 24 hrs
  • Must be set from a handset - any handset that is registerd to the base is fine
  • Follow handset instructions but make sure hours are set as 01 - press menu / select to confirm
  • Then place the handset back on its base - all other handsets and the BASE will then change to that day / time
Hope this helps

Registering DSS7905 Accessory Handsets
Your phone supports a total of ten (10) cordless handsets. Handset(s) supplied in the box with the phone base are
pre-registered at the factory. If you purchase an accessory handset, you need to register the handset before use.
Only one handset can be registered at a time. When charged, pre-registered handsets display a handset ID number.
Handsets that have not been registered display.

Before registering the DSS7905 accessory handset, the battery pack MUST be charged for 15-20 hours.
To register the DSS7905 handset:

Place the handset in the telephone base charging cradle to begin registration.
During the registration process, HANDSET REGISTERING will appear in the LCD. When REGISTRATION
COMPLETE. is displayed; the handset has been registered to the base. If REGISTRATION FAILED. appears,
please try these steps again. When you register an accessory handset to the base, the handset ID will be

If an accessory handset has ever been registered to a base, you must reset the handset before you can
register it to a new base. See Resetting the Handsets on page 24.

Phillips CD6452B Cordless phone was just purchased yesterday. It rings when we get a call, but we cant answer. We also cant make calls. It keeps saying "not responding". what could be the problem?

Bad antenna or you didn't let it charge for 12-24 hours as stated in manual for set-up. Some phones have to be set in the "charging dock" so the handset will be recognized by the charging dock.

Please register

I charged my three brand new GE model 25922 for 24 hours, placed each handset in the main base to satisfy the "PLEASE REGISTER" message and the message remains. The only instruction in the manual as well as on the 800 448-0329 # is to place each handset in the base unit for 20 seconds.

Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.

Base phone handset #1 holding charge

The base unit should not need a charge. It should be powered by the plug in adapter. It may have a battery to keep operation for a short time in a power outage. The adapter may be loose, the adapter could be broken or the plug in the phone may be broken.
