Handset says "Out of Range". What does that mean; how do I fix it.

out of range means it can't receive a signal from the base station. The most likely problem lies with the base station. Special when 2 or even more handsets are giving this message.
Try to reset (unplug the power cord and reinsert it) the base station. When it does not come back after half a minute, the station must have a major problem.

Handset has message Out of Range even though it is fully charged on on the handset.

The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone:
1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.

Out of Range

It needs to be re-synced to the base unit. Check manual for exact directions, but it could involve anything from unplugging battery and base unit power, resetting in cradle, and anything else......

NOT SUB on head set

I had the same problem to fix it you press the menu button then scrool up untill you see REGISTER.

Press OK the display shows "BS 1 2 3 4" Enter the number of the base unit you wish to register the handset to.

The display shows "PIN code" (original code 0000) press OK the display shows "Search X (where 'X' is the number of the base you are registering to)

Press and hold the "page button" on the Base unit untill it beeps twice then after a few seconds the phone should work again.

Try unplugging all telephone (including the base unit), then try to call the number again. If there is still a busy signal, then the problem is with your telephone line/connection and you need to call your phone provider. On the other hand if the number rings, then chances are that base unit is defective (or one of your other phones physically connected to the tel line.).

To verify that it is the base unit or one of the other wired telephones,  reconnect them one by one and determine which of them will cause the busy signal. Problems like this can be caused by a power surge, near lightning strike or a simple component failure.

If it is the base unit, it is very likely an electronic problem and therefore would require familiarity with components and circuitry diagnosis, soldering and use of a DVM. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified phone technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
