Re: broken handset

The weakness with the handsets was that women using hand lotion or hair gel can get it on the front of the keypad. It then works it's way to the back side of the rubber keypad. The oil gets on the powder carbon on the keypad. The Carbon shorts the copper on the phone to activate the #1 or #2, etc. When the oil mixes with the carbon the key no longer works. I replaced many keypads until Sony Supplies ran out.... A cheap home fix would be to open the handset and clean the #1 key and the circuit board. You can try the keys but if they don't have any carbon on them you can buy liquid carbon at Electronic Stores OR just paper punch a circle of alumimum foil. Glue the foil on the key with thin glue. Works....

I need to deregister a DS6101 without the base. I needed to replace the base and once we installed the new base, the extra handset that we had registered with our old base shows the following message...

Called the manufactuer.... To do this enter on the handset you want to deregister:

*331734# and press (Menu Key# 1 - top uppermost left button that is unmarked).

This will put the handset back into the register mode.

Hope this helps,

The corless base doesnt charge the phone

This particular model of GE Phone + 1 cordless phone is garbage. Its a problem I have seen many times where the cordless set isnt being charged by the base like it should.
Actually, what the problem is, your handset more then likely has a loose or broken wire inside it that connects to the battery and the charging nodes. and is probably not able to be fixed.
Although you can buy a new extra handset from most websites that sell that model of phone, or even a electronics store if they have it.

My phone says no link to base but I am right beside it.

Sounds like the antenna on the base station is not receiving, or the cordless handset is not transmitting -OR- the sets have never been registered to the base station (please look up registering to base station, if the set has never been registered)

Did the cordless set work before?

The base station or the handset may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless set(s), and take out the batteries from the cordless set(s). Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, then re-install the batteries.

Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link between the base station and the cordless sets.

Good luck

Deregister lost or broken phones

Some tricks from a helpful Uniden rep:

holding down end+# keys at the same time on the phone for about 10 secs (you will hear a beep) will deregister the handset. If you have a dead handset and want to deregister it from the base, you have to reset the base. unplug the phoneline and power. hold down the "delete message" key, plug power back in. about 10 secs later, you will hear a long beep (theres a short beep upon powerup as well). At this point all handsets are deregistred and you will have to reregister them with the end+# trick. this way when #1 handset is dead, you can make a working one #1 and get the broken one fixed emotion-1.gif

BTW, this is a woot warranty, not uniden warranty. however the uniden rep gave me the number to the people who refurb (rox0rz!) these. I'll post an update when I finally get ahold of them (and the number if its actually helpful)
