Had sets will not beep if the battery is too low or drained of its charge. The power for the beep needs to come from a good battery charge, so if you are missing a hand set and its been out of the charge cradle for a long time, or the unit is more than 4 years old and the batteries wont charge anymore, then you can't use the find handset feature and probably can't use it to talk as well.
If you know that the batteries are good, then there are 2 other possibilities: the seek signal needs to be reset by unplugging power to the base unit for one minute and allowing the circuits to reset themselves, or the seek button is not making good contact inside and this would require someone with knowledge to open the base unit and clean or repair the button contacts. Finally, many hans sets have an on/off/standby feature. If the handset is in off position, the it isthe same as if you removed the battery and it will never beep; it must be on standby.

How to register hs


It would help to have the model number of the base ( found on a sticker on the bottom of the base ) and the handset (under the battery) but the following works for many models: Press and hold the "Find Handset" button until the "in use" lamp comes on. Press the
"#" key on the handset, then place it on the base... if it is going to work, in a minute or less it will chirp and announce "handset registered". If it shows "registration failed", the base may be "fully populated" and cannot accept another handset: many models are limited to only 5 handsets. To start over by clearing the base registry, press the "Find Handset" button until the "in use" lamp
lights, then continue to hold "Find Handset" until "in use" begins to
blink. Release, then press again the "Find Handset" button for a moment. The base should chirp, and be ready to register handsets again... try again as above until the maximum is reached. Good luck!

What does it mean when it said hold find key for 5 sec


There's a button on the base station marked "FIND HS". Pressing this button will cause all the handsets to beep for a minute, so you can find handsets that may have fallen between the cushions on the couch or otherwise gotten lost.

For further assistance, either specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 phone or select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

Handset msg says.."Press HS LOC


Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 phone, I can only direct you to select it from the list beginning here. The manual should have illustrations giving the locations of all buttons.

I cannot get my Vtech LS6204 to register. I have tried everything and the screen always reads registration failed.


I have a 2-handset VTech CS6419 that I had been using w/o problems for months. Both HS were always plugged in and charged. One day I found the base HS would not ring and the screen had the message that I needed to register the HS. Pressing the "find HS" button to start the process only made the accessory HS, not the malfunctioning base one, ring. I solved the problem by 1) unplugging the base, 2) pulling the batteries from BOTH handsets, then 3) replugging in the base and reattaching the battery for ONLY the malfunctioning HS. 4) I then did the registration process again (press the "Find HS" button on the base for 4 seconds, then press the # button on the HS and wait.) The malfunctioning HS then registered! I then reattached the battery to the accessory HS and returned it to its' base. Problem solved!

Handset won't ring


You need to reset the main base and make sure the ringer volume is turned all the way up. Disconnect the power from the back of the main base, press and hold find hs key while reconnecting power until you hear long beep. Should reset base and handset.

Handset not registering with base


I've repaired thousands of these kx-tga400b phones and we have the only improved keypad that eliminates the common keypad problems for good.

Does the cordless phone have a 3 in the top right corner after it registers to 3? If so, then it is registering correctly. If it THEN consistently says "invalid, please register" there is definitely a problem with the main circuit board and it's not at all common. I've seen a few of these but it's a rare problem. We can fix it but I'm not sure how much luck you would have with any other repair facilities.

If you have the problem intermittently it's probably a bad RF module. That's a much more common issue.

Registering phones


I have after many hours found the solution. (Well one that worked for me). I have a Uniden Elite 8855 + 8805 additional handsets. What you have to do is:
1. Go to your base unit.
2. Put your flip phone in the cradle.
3. Press down and hold down (AT ALL TIMES) the end (find hs) button.
4. Whilst holding down this button, take the power plug out of the wall.
5. Whilst still holding down the end (find hs) button, plug the power back in.
6. When you hear a beep from the base unit system.
7. Let go of the end (find hs) button.
8. Your phone memory should be cleared now and you are ready to repeat the process of registering your base and additional handsets.
