Re: My new hand set will not detect my base

Same manual as lethean but Page 24 if the previously used Base is Unavailable and your phone shows "Deregistration" in the Menu.

Base Unavailable (Handset Only)
To clear the base registration data in the handset, please follow these steps:
Press and hold [] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select the BASE UNAVAILABLE submenu.
BASE UNAVAILABLE appears. Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Move the cursor to select YES. Press the OK soft key.

Re: My new hand set will not detect my base

Have you followed the instructions for handset registration? For some of the newer handsets, you may need to refer to the instructions that came with the handset (and not the base) instead of just putting the additional handset in the base to register it.

Page 23 of the 9480 manual gives explicit registration instructions.

Base el5200 will not reconize new hand set

To deregister the new handsets from their old bases and re-register
them to your base, try this for each new handset...

1. When the new handset says "Connecting..." and goes nowhere
else, enter *331734 [menu] and it will soon beep and display
"Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base: on the base press
the "Handset Locator" button and hold it until the "in use" light
comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ), then release the button and set the
new handset into the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds
it will beep and display its "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base has a limit to how many handsets it can handle,
I believe it is five handsets maximum for the EL52300.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is already # 5 )
you will have to clear all the handsets from the base and
re-register them in sequence ( it is the only way to 'rescue' the
places occupied by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

1. Press and hold the the "Handset Locator" button until the
"in use" light lights and then starts to blink ( ~ 10 seconds ),
release the button -- then press it again briefly while the "in use"
light is still blinking.

2. The base will beep and all handsets will display
"Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset in turn: press
"Handset Locator" ~ 4sec ( in-use light on ), set handset into
the base cradle, etc.

The manual is available from:
but does not describe these procedures.

Good luck !

The in use/charge indictor light does'nt come on when i put phone on it. I just brought a new battery.

Check your connections on hand set and base. Wiggle the handset on base to see if handset starts charging... If it does.. clean your connections or you have loose solder connections either in hand set or Base Unit.. Give that a try..

I have a Pansonic kx-tga270s that is registered to a base I do not have. Is there a way to deregister it.

you dont need to deregister it if you have not registered all 8 hand sets with your base unit. Just register the new one and the base will assign a new # for this new. I you had registered 8 hand sets with your base already, you need to remove(deregister0 one handset from your base(it can take only upt 8).
If it still not registering please deregister as follows:
on the base unit, press program, them mute, then enter 335#, then enter the handset number you wish to deregister.
after deregistering try to register your new hand set.

The base ringer on my Uniden TRU9480 base station rings very loud and cannot find where to either adjust or discontinue the ringer. Jackgee1

I found my owners manual and to adjust the ringer on either the Base Station or Hand Set as follows:
with the hand set in place just use the base arrow up or down to go from 0 (off) to 2 (loud) and on the hand set just use the arrows for high low or off. Just bew sure to have the hand set on the base before adjusting the ringer

I am unable to change the time on the hand sets and the base from standard time to daylight time. Every time I change the time all the hand sets and base return to standard time with in one day. How do I...

The problem has not been corrected. I was told that the problem is with software. So I assume that the software in the base set and 4 hand sets must have a software problem, That is a bummer of solution. I might as well buy me some new phones and they will NOT be VTECH.
As far as I am concerned, the quality of your products is poor. Must be made in China

Please unsubscribe me from your emails.
