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.

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
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.
At 20 ft line of sight, you should have perfect reception with most any cordless phone.
The fuzzy signal can indicate: 1. 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.
2. 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
if battery just replace battery but the head sets are compatible with other handsets of same ghz say 2.4 you just gotta set in base and let base recognize new hand set these phones are practically built the same way but only with new technology
Find the manual on the link below.
Check batteries are charged preferably for a few hours then perform the reset as per the manual:
To re-initialize the handset and base:
1 Disconnect the power to the base.
2 Remove the handset battery pack.
3 Wait at least 15 seconds.
4 Insert the handset battery pack.
5 Connect the power to the base.
6 Put the handset in the base to re-initialize.
7 Wait for handset to display READY (or handset name).
