VT ip8100 - enter base id problem

Both handsets display "enter base id" after an attempt to fix a broken vonage connection through the customer service help line. i enter the number on the sticker on the base but after the restart the phone asks for the number again, leaving me completely phoneless... is there another way to find out the base id on the phone since i think the sticker might just be plain wrong? one of the hansets is displaying "enter base id", I don't know where is located, the serial number at the bottom is DC850756607.  Does anybody know where  the base id is located?

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.

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656

To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.

I need the base id for a vtech house phone model number 6772

It sounds like you are trying to register the handset(s) to the base. Once the handset is charged, if you see 'Searching for Base' on the display,(The bold is for your question specifically but I thought you may like all of the information for getting a phone hooked up) ON the Base unit press MENU, scroll down to Display Base ID, press OK, and the Base ID code will display. If NEW appears in your handset display, press the soft key under it and enter the base ID code you found in the base display. If 'New' does not appear on your handset, press MENU and then scroll down to REGISTER. Press OK and then enter the base ID code. If the handset is already registered, please deregister all then register again. To deregister a handset which is registered to the base model 20-2431, Using the soft keys on the base, press the 'MENU', then press the down arrow once until 'SETUP BASE' is highlighted. Press 'OK'. Press the down arrow 6 times, until 'DEREGISTER ALL' is highlighted. Press 'SET' . If your handset is registered to the base model 20-2481, Using the soft keys on the base, press the 'MENU', then press the down arrow twice until 'SETUP BASE' is highlighted. Press 'OK'. Press the down arrow 7 times, until 'DEREGISTER ALL' is highlighted. Press 'SET'.

Can put in base id

Did you try this (from the i5801 manual) -

To register a handset to the base, follow these steps:

Step 1: If ENTER BASE ID is displayed on the handset, proceed to the next step; if not, press MENU on the handset, then press ▼ until REGISTER is highlighted; now press OK.

Step 2: Locate the 15-digit Base ID number by pressing, at the base: MENU, then press until DISPLAY BASE-ID is highlighted, then press OK.

Step 3: Carefully enter this number using the handset dialpad. If you make a mistake, press to backspace. When finished, press OK.

In a few moments, the handset will be assigned a number (1-6). This will be the lowest available number in the sequence not previously assigned to another system handset.

Step 4: Repeat the procedure for any other unregistered system handsets.

Reply back if you have success. The Base ID is not from the bottom of the base unit, but is something you get by following Step 2 above.
