Re: base not able to connect to handset.

I successfully reset Radio Shack (Uniden) 5561 handset by reconnecting the battery while holding the '*' and '#' key, then press the right upper soft key near the LCD window. The display will indicate "EEPROM/RAM cleared!!" and will return the handset to the factory default condition - looking for a base to register to.

Hi there, Your new phones will not interact with a base station from another brand of phones. If you want to use one base station, you can buy single phones of the same model and brand and those will interact with the original base station. Your new phones will not connect to the old base station Sorry, Alex

I have three handset cordless phone only the main base phone work the other two says connecting when you turn it on but it wont connect it have loss its connection with the base phone

Often the handsets must be re-registered when they won't work. Sometimes they have to be de-registered, then re-registered before getting them to work. Uniden has many different model number 5.8 GHz cordless phones, send a comment with the model number and I will give specific help on your cordless. I have included a link where Uniden cordless manuals can be downloaded if you need it.

I have a Uniden cordless phone #D2CT 6.0--I love the phone but the party on the other end of the line can barely hear me -how can I fix this or this a bad phone???

At 20 ft line of sight, you should have perfect reception with most any cordless phone.

The fuzzy signal can indicate:
A weak signal between base and handset.
20 ft line of sight should have a good strong signal.
Your handset may be defective.
Or, your handset battery may be weak.
Your base unit may be defective.

You may be experiencing RFI Interference.
Is the base unit next to any other electronic devices?
If it is next to a wireless router or some other wireless device, it may be overloaded by the nearby signal (even if on a different frequency)

I've got a 5 year old Panasonic 5.8 Ghz cordless phone connected to my VoIP box. I just tested it from about 25 ft away from the base unit in another room with a wall in between and my reception is perfect.

I did the same test with my Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones (1.9 GHz). The first handset is slightly fuzzy, but otherwise good signal. The 2nd handset was perfectly quiet with good strong signal. So, there is a difference between two identical handsets connected to the same base unit. This indicates to me that one handset is better tuned than the other. Nothing I can do about that but get a new 2nd extension cordless handset. Sometimes, it's just luck of the draw

Uniden 5.8 GHz Digital cordless w 3 handsets interference background noise no matter where we are in the house or which handset we use

This is possibly caused by the internet connection.
Try new ADSL filter.
You need one each per device.

No dial tone on handset

It may not be registed with the main unit. You may need to register the handset. With my uniden all i have to do is put it in the main base until it says what handset it is (it should be a number).

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask
