Question about Cell Phones

3 Answers

I have a Qwest model 20-2432. When I enter the 15 digit ID code into the handset, I get an error message that reads D52 PD. I have three stations in addition to the base station and I get the same error message in all of the four handsets. I have gone through the deregistration process and nothing seems to be the answer. I am at a loss and nothing seems to be the answer including a new set of batteries. Please give me an answer. John Stegmuller jrstegmuller@comcast.net

    I removed the power to the base unit and I disconnected the phone line. I left the battery in the base unit. I let it rest overnight. This AM I reconnected the external power and phone line and one by one placed each of the four handsets into the base unit cradle. None of the indicator lights an any one of the
    four hand sets would blink on and off. What is the next step?

  • jrstegmuller Sep 11, 2009

    All four handsets display the message, "Searching for Base". When I enter the 15 digit code in any of my four handsets, I get the error message "D52 PD".

    I went throught the manual and its kinda tricky. Apperatly they had an engineer right the instructions because us laymen dont understand it.



    Since you deregistered the base unit. The base unit does not think there are any phones availlable.



    you can only do this onephone at a time. the base unit has to be in taught how many phones you



    have. all over again



    please verify when you do this that the base unit in idle mode (off mode) ...it can not be on it will not



    allow you to connect to the base if it is in the on mode

John I know that you said you have gone through the deregister phase But in the 15 didgit code you use to re register check that zeros arent alphabetic or one's aren't I ie's I cant see how the code is presented but often the use of numerals in alphabetical keys is a down right nuisance
RE REGISTER
1. After charging the battery, the screen will display:
2. On the base unit, press MENU/SEL, then scroll to DISPLAY BASE ID,
press MENU/SEL.
3. Enter the 15 digit base unit ID code, If you make a mistake, press the
DELETE/MUTE key to backspace (delete characters), then enter the
correct information.
4. Press MENU/SELECT to complete the registration process.
5. Once a valid base ID code has been entered, the display will blank for
a second or two, and then show:
6. If the base accepts the new handset, after several seconds the new
handset will show:
Where X is the new handset number assigned, sequentially, by the base


De-register all system handsets
1. With the phone in idle, press *883244# on the base.
2. Then press MENU/SEL, IN USE and CHARGE, the POWER LED will
illuminate briefly before returning to idle.
3. This will erase all handsets registered to the base. The handsets will
now prompt you to:
4. Re-register the handset(s) to base by following steps 2 through 6 in
Registration above.

First reset the base by removing the cord for the adaptor AND the phone line. wait 10 minutes and plug it back in.


place each handset into the base and watch the charging light. it should flicker, repeat each phone on the base. this does NOT work if you place them in the standalone chargers

Deregister AT&T SL82118 handset


The following is for the model ATT 5830.

Enter the following sequence on the base station including the * symbols.
**335782

This will deregister all handsets associated with that base station. Handsets can then be added back into the system by entering the base station ID into the handsets one by one. The base station ID is on the bottom of the base station itself.

I am trying to replace a handeset on my E5640 answering system. I have followed the procedures to deregister the existing handsets but it will not accept the base code for the last one. The handset I am...


  • Your telephone can accommodate up to four cordless handsets. You can add new handsets (Model E560-2, sold separately) at any time, but each must be registered with the base before use.
  • The handset provided with your telephone is automatically registered as Handset 1.
  • Additional handsets will be assigned numbers in the order they are registered (2, 3 or 4). You can register a maximum of four handsets.
To de-register all handsets
• Unplug the power supply from the base unit.
• Remove all handsets from the charge cradles and base.
• Plug in the power supply while pressing and holding the HANDSET LOCATOR button.
• Continue pressing HANDSET LOCATOR until the IN USE and CHARGING indicators are lit (this could take up to 10 seconds).
• Release the HANDSET LOCATOR button.
• All handsets will display: ENTER BASE ID: XXXXXXXXXX
Once the base indicators turn off (up to 30 seconds), the handsets have been de-registered from the base, and can now be re-registered.

To re-register a handset:
• Make sure your handset batteries are properly installed and charged.
• Your handset will display "ENTER BASE ID".
• Enter the 15-digit Base ID number from the bottom of the base unit.
• Press SELECT to accept the new code and complete re-registration.

To re-register a handset to a new base unit:
• Make sure your handset batteries are properly installed and charged.
• Unplug the old base unit. Your handset will display "SEARCHING...".
• Install the new base unit by plugging it into an electrical outlet and phone jack.
• Press and hold the SELECT key until the handset displays "ENTER BASE ID".
• Enter the new 15-digit Base ID number from the bottom of the new base unit.
• Press SELECT to accept the new code and complete re-registration. The handset is now registered to the new base.

I put new batteries in my At&T cordless phones and I am getting a message on phone screen T23 PD


To register a handset to your telephone base
Make sure the handset battery is installed and charged properly. You have to enter a 15-digit telephone base ID to register the handset to the telephone base.

To find the telephone base ID and register the handset:

1. On the telephone base, press the MENU softkey when in idle mode to enter the feature menu. Press the or softkey to scroll to the DISPLAY BASE-ID menu, then press the OK softkey. The telephone base ID will be displayed.

2. On the handset, use the keypad buttons to enter the telephone base ID and press the OK softkey.
Press the softkey to move the cursor.

3. The handset will first display PLEASE WAIT!!, then T23 PD followed by SEARCHING FOR BASE. The screen will finally display HANDSET X when the registration is successful.
NOTES:

1. If the registration is not successful, the display will show NO BASE SUBSCRIPTION. Try the registration process again.

2. If an incorrect base ID is entered, the base ID will disappear and ENTER BASE ID will be displayed.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

My E63 has been blocked by the Optus network...how do i un block it


Your handset can become fully locked due to exceeding the number of attempts to enter the correct unlock code. The type of handset you have will determine what process to follow to see if the handset can be unlocked.If your handset appears with a Code Error or does not unlock with the first or second attempt, you will need to call Customer Service to confirm the code. Once the handset is fully locked it will require manually unlocking from Optus and your handset will need to be sent away.

1 Insert SIM
N.B. Can be unlocked with SIM removed from handset however there is a 5 second time limit 2 Power phone on 3 Type: #pw+15 digit code+1 (where '15 digit code' is the unlock code) 4 Press Hash (#) - SIM Restriction OFF will display on screen for one second
Troubleshooting:
  • If the unlock code is incorrect the phone will display the message 'Code Error'
  • If the user tries to unlock a phone which does not have SIM Lock activated the phone will display the message 'SIM was not restricted'
  • If the syntax (#pw+) is incorrect when entering the unlock code - nothing will happen.

Can you tell me how to fix this T23 PD error message on a handset for the AT&T EP 5962 2-line phone?


Well this worked for me so hopefully it will work for everyone else also... I had dropped my handset and the battery popped out.. well upon reinserting the battery i got the T23 PD Blinking error on my phone, well after trying multiple things from what the manual was stating I eventualy gave up and unplugged the handset from the wall... well we received a call in our office and all of a sudden my "unplugged" phone, that was still sitting in the handset charger began to ring and all the normal numbers and name were on the face of the handset... I then plugged the phone back in and went into the menu to Register, then entered the Base ID which is found at your Base Phone. Once this was complete it said please wait.. although for a short while it kept on saying System Busy if you tried to hit line 1 or 2 but by the next morning it is working fine! :) Hope this helps for you also.

Other products that use the 5.8GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. These products or equipments include: radio towers, page towers, cellular Phones, other 5.8GHz cordless phones, intercoms, or monitors. If any of these are in the area, they may interfere with the performance of the phone. Try relocating the phone.

Video displays, Televisions or Personal Computers can cause
interference on the phone if it is plugged in electrically with one of this equipment (typically on a power strip or extension cord). Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet without any other major appliance plugged in.

Relocate the phone out of the kitchen area. Appliances may cause interference.

If the charge light does not remain on, clean the handset and base charging contacts using a pencil eraser. If it comes on after cleaning the contacts, you may need to charge the unit for 10 hours.

Make sure that the AC power cord is securely plugged into the base. If unsuccessful, plug the unit into a different known working outlet or turn on the switch on the power strip.
