Bought a used vtech 5.8 phone, charged the battery and now see message "not registered. I can not make calls... how do I register it?

I believe it is telling you it is not registered with the Base Unit. You did get the Base Unit with it didn't you, otherwise you have a paperweight.

If you do have a set then this is the answer

Tip 1 of 1
Step 1: Place the handset in the base or charger. If PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and recradle it in the base or charger.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for approximately four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while, the handset will emit a series of tones, and the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

Phone reads searching after being disconected and reconected

If this telephone is part of a multiphone set there is one base that is connected to a phone line (or if Magic Jack the internet cord). The other phone charging seats work by radio signal from the base unit. Place the phone on the base unit and let it reconnect for a few minutes. If you bought this expansion set without already owning a base unit, you will need to get the base unit or take this expansion set back for a unit that will opperate by itself.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...

Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.


Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

A search of Uniden support only said to call 1-800-297-1023 with handset registration issues. The rep picked up quickly and walked me through the reset procedure. Here it is step-by-step:

1. Remove battery
2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it's workable)
3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.
4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok
5. Remove battery (yes again)
6. Reinsert battery (this time there's no need to hold down any buttons)
7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)
8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

Philips CD240 2nd phone wont connect - keeps saying searching

Hi, I solved this issue this morning. What you cannot confuse here is that handset and base. To do the registration successfully, the both must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting". The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning. In my case, sadly, the base was more likely dead (if I press any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there is no response). Hence I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible BINATONE 1800 Single at Comet (14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the BINATONE instruction. Then on the Phillips CD240 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset. The BINATONE base came with 12 months manufacturer's guarantee so I am sorted with the base problem for at least a year, which is nice. I hope this is helpful. Best, Ken
