First make sure you clear the registration on the problem handset. Go to the handset, menu, select de-register; and select yes. Bring your handset next to your base, on the base unit menu select register handset. On the handset, hold the # for 2 seconds. You should see registration completed. Good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
You may need to reset your handset in the following instances:
You lose a handset and purchase a new one. When you try and register to your existing base you get registration
You are unable to register any handsets to the base.
You had a base which needed to be exchanged by the manufacturer. When you register your existing handsets
to the base, the handsets say #3 and #4, but you only have 2 handsets.
When you are instructed to by the one of the manufacturer's call center representatives.
To reset, do the following:
Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select DEREGISTER HS.
WHICH HANDSET? appears. Select the handset that you want to de-register, and press the OK soft key.
DEREGISTER HS appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The
handset will clear its registration information from the base, and then delete its own base information.

re-register the handset to the base (see page 25).
If the handset cannot contact the base, it will display OUT OF RANGE. Make sure the handset is in range of the
base and the base is connected to power.

will be erased. For more information on resetting the handset back to factory settings and when you need to

Resetting the Handset without the Base
