Question about Vtech IP8100-2 Twin Cordless Phone
One by one both of my Vtech IP 8100 phones have gone into permanent "Searching..... mode." Removed batteries and unplugged the base station but no joy. Unregistered Base ID numbers from handsets, despite saving the Base ID number in each handset now all they say is Enter Base ID. Keep entering Base ID but no change. I reset the base station but to no avail. Bought these phones new in Feb 2009.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: VTech 5.8 mhz won't work
I found a solution that fixed this problem (at least for me). On the vtech site they said to unplug the base unit for at least 5 minutes. Previously, I had only unplugged the base unit for a few seconds. This time, I left it unplugged for about 10 minutes or so and when I plugged it back in, everything was working fine. Apparently there is some sort of capacitor that must discharge long enough to completely remove power from the circuitry.
Good luck and I hope this works for you!

SOURCE: handset says unregistered
The manual says that to register it needs to be completely powered off and then restarted. I unplugged my battery and then plugged it bacdk up.

Install new batteries! Be sure to let them charge fully (overnite) before first use.
I have 5 of the i5808 expansion phones around my house - most about the same age - and they all started acting up ithin a few months of each other. I "experimented" with a new battery for one, and it solved the issue for that one phone...so I replaced the batteries in each of the others that were experiencing the problems. This was about 2 to 3 months ago, and all phones have been problem-free since the new battery installs!
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i want to add an additional handset to my vtech phone...the new handset is "searching for base" and requests a 15-digit number which is suppose to be on the base--there is no 15-digit number to input.
The 15 digit number shoudl be on a sticker on the bottom of the base unit.
