SOURCE: Cordless phones will not connect to base.

I just had the same problem and tried several things with no results. Then, I figured I had tried everything else so I just unplugged the battery pack, set the phone down for 25 minutes and then plugged the pack back in. Phone worked again after that.

You may need to reset the Telephone Answering System. Complete the following steps to reset the Telephone Answering System:
Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base.

Step 2: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base and charger.

Step 3: Set the day and time.

I find that unplugging the base unit power for about 20 seconds, then replugging it, usually clears this problem.

SOURCE: Uniden Cordless Phone Model DSS7855.

The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.

Using the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset. All this requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.

To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the ‘end’ button and the ‘#’ button simultaneously until the phone beeps. It will now be de-registered from the base.

However, the base will still have this handset in it’s record.

To de-register all handsets from the base, remove power and the base handset. Press and hold the ‘flash/find hs’ button while applying power. Wait for the beep and release the button. The charge light will now flash. Sit any handset in the cradle. When the flashing stops, all handsets are inhibited from connecting.

However, the handset still appears to be connected to the base unit. Pressing talk will give an ‘Unable to connect’ message. To re-register the handsets to the base, you have to de-register the handset first with the two button method.

Of interest, pressing ‘*’ and ‘#’ on the handset while reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the same on the base unit puts you in some sort of diagnostic mode. Press speaker to exit.

I have a Uniden cordless phone EZI996, The lights on the base are blinking on & off bright red.


Try the following procedure to reset and re-sync the phone system:

  • Disconnect all units from power.
  • Remove batteries from all handset.
  • Check all phone connections to base.
  • Check the phone connector underneath the base (RJ11 squared plug).
  • Put back battries on handsets.
  • Place handsets on base.
  • Connect base back to power with handset sitting on base.

If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault. In that case call Uniden to arrange repair or replacement.

Uniden support number for your area is prited inside the user documentation.

I have no dial tones on our two uniden 5.8GHz cordless phones. New batteries were installed.

Make sure the phone and the phone base is turned on. Check the phone cables at the back of the phone base where you charge your cordless phone. It should be properly connected to the phone jack on the wall and at the back of the phone base. Try unplugging and replugging it back in. If that fails, try changing the phone cable. If still there's nothing, try to connect another phone on the phone line. If you get a dial tone, it means you have a problem with the wireless phone set, if not, contact your phone company.

My Phone will not connect to the base unit...

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.

This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.

What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

I have the very same problem and it was after storing numbers into the directory, although that may not have anything to do with it.
