Re: phillips phone cd445

On the hand set:
- menu button - ADVANCED SET - REGISTRATION - base 1
- pin # is 0000 (default)

On the base station and the base station handset - press and hold for at least (3) seconds, at the same time:
- on base - the intercom button
- on base handset - menu button

It's in the manual but you need a magnifying glass to read it.

Re: phillips phone cd445

Select base station by entering 1 (for base station 1), not by using the regular enter/call key that was used to OK the previous steps

Can I use Philips CD240 CD245 handset on a philips dc445 base

Simple answer yes they are compatable I just did it as I could not find any CD445 handsets.The manuals are downloadable from Phillips just search for CD445 or CD245 manual.Just press speaker button on 445 base for 5 seconds untill it beeps twice,then on new 245 handset menu/ register enter default code 0000 and bingo its live. Oddly the newer handset bases are 9v and not compatable with 445 bases which are 6v and have different contacts so you cant sit your 245 in the old base.My new 245 came with a new base anyway so no problem.

Phone says searching

Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

My philips cd445 needs new batteries i think they are discontinued so where will i get new batteries for this phone

Looks like that phone just uses 2 standard NiMH AAA batteries in each handset, which should be available at any retail store.

All of a sudden our 3 Uniden phones don't work. However the phone on our land line works. The screen on our Uniden phones show that they are fully charged. The upside down triangle flashes on and off....

It sounds like your hansets are no longer registered to the base unit. Since you have not listed the specific model phone you have I cannot give you specific steps to re-register the handsets to the base, however if you go to you can find the manual for your phone and follow the instructions for re-registering the handsets

My phones (philips cd445) will not hold a charge for more than a few hours off the cradle...yes I have replaced the batteries, twice. once with disposables, once with rechargeables

You might have what is called "memory'. If you continue to replace the phone on it's charger after each call the battery will "think" it's empty, giving you s short charge time. Next time you replace the batteries (rechargeable) FULLY charge them then leave the phone off the charger until you go to bed at night.

Cant register/install a new dect 6.0 uniden 2060 phone

I had a similar problem which I finally fixed. You did not say if any of your phones registered.
First try the following recommended by Uniden Support:
Your phone(s) should be fully charged before putting them on the main base.
Unplug the battery from the phone by removing the battery cover and removing the connector. Then, push the # and * key together and hold while you plug the battery back in (requires some dexterity). Continue to hold the two keys until you hear a confirmation tone. This will force the phone to reregister. Put the phone on the main base (if you are sure it has a fully charged battery) and see if it will reregister it to solve the problem.
That did not work for me. So, I followed the instructions to de-register the handset (even though it hadn't really registered). But, I also pretended like the Base was not available (because using the base in this step also failed).
1) Press and hold the hang up and # keys for at least 5 seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Select.
3) Select the base you want to deregister from, press Select and then move the cursor to Yes and select.
This causes the phone to delete any of its base information.
At this point, again insure that your phone shows the battery is fully charged and if it is not, put it on the stand alone charger base (not the main base). With the battery fully charged, place it on the base and try registering again by placing it in the main base.
If neither of these approaches help, contact support at
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.

What's the button on the base to register a handset?

hello Stephwen

On a CD440 base you should see at least a single button wich serves to call the cell phone, for the case when we don't remember where left the device, that's the button that you have to press during 3 seconds. On a CD445 base, you can see more buttons has the images showed on Philips pages... the button as a nice sign on it: it as a point with some curve barsto the rigth side as meaning "echo" or "sound"...
