    Thanks for getting back to me. I had the phone in my hand, next to the base, when I did what you instructed (3 or 4 times). It just keeps asking me to register. Prior to my trying to re-register the phone, it just would not connect to the base. Any other suggestions?

    I have the Sony A2780 with a new SPP-H273.  The handset will not register.


    Phone is charged - near the base - have the correct ID.
    PGM - INTERCOM - i.d. number - PGM
    5 beeps and "ERROR"
    Called the 800/222-7669 Sony direct response # - they wanted $14.95 to fix it or not fix it - same price.
    I said forget it.

    I finally found the answer on the sony site. The critical step that was missing from the directions that came with the phone was number 6. Once you reset the base to "test" the handset links immediately. Use the link below to get the instructions.

    I can't get the handset to connect with the base. I had to get a new battery pack, it arrived and I installed it and charged the phone for two days but It will not connect - I get a message that says Connecting, then about five seconds later the message says"No Connection". I have a lot invested in the new battery pack, but I can't make the cordless handset phone work.



    HELP!

    Have the same problem. When I click on your link for instructions on how to register headset with system it takes me to a link which is no longer available.What is step six which was left out of manual ? Must the headset be in the charging stand. I have followed all the steps and still get 5 Beeps and error message. Then the headset tells me you must register phone.

SORRY TO BE REDUNDANT BUT DID YOU HAVE PHONE IN STAND BY AND NEAR BASE.
THEN PRESS PGM
THEN INTERCOM
THE SCREEN SHOULD SAY ENTER SYSTEM ID
ENTER THE 10 DIGITS SYSTEM ID ( THIS NUMBER IS ON A STICKER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BASE PHONE)
THEN PRESS PGM.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE PUTTING THE CORRECT ID NUMBER IN THE PHONE
I HOPE THIS HELPS

DS6321 out of range, no power at base


This sounds like a registration problem, the handset(s)
and the base have lost identification with each other.

I. To address this, first de-register the handset(s) ---
do this procedure for each handset:

0. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover....

1. press [menu]
2. scroll up/down to "Settings"
3. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
4. scroll down to "next page", press [select]
5. scroll down to "Register Clear?", press [select]
6. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??", press [select]
7. display reads "Ok" and chirps, press [ off ]

8. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY (why the cover was off)

9. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery & replace the cover

10. display reads "Not Registered" ===============================

II. To register the handset to the base:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold for
~4 sec until the "In Use" lamp lights.
2. press # on the handset and set the handset into
the handset cradle on the base
3. within 30 seconds or so, the handset will either
chirp and display "Handset Registered", then
"Handset #1" or it will say "Registration Failed".

NOTE: the battery must be well charged prior to the
registration process, a weak battery may cause a
"Registration Failed". Charge the battery for a few
hours and try the registration ( II ) again.

NOTE: the base can only handle 5 handsets and will
increment the number of each handset registered
until "Handset #5" has appeared, even if some of
the handsets are lost/not in use. Trying to register
more than 5 handsets will result in "Registration Failed."
===============================

III. To clear the base of all handset registrations and
be able to start registering again at Handset #1:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold past ~4 sec when the "In Use" lamp lights, at
about 10 secs the "In Use" lamp will begin to
blink.
2. release the [Find Handset] button momentarily,
then briefly press it again. After a moment,
all handsets that were registered to the base
(if any) will display "Not Registered" and be
ready for fresh registration
3. for multiple handsets, return to II. above and
register each handset in turn.
===============================
Good luck !!

HOW DO I DEREGISTER MY BASE STATION?


If you want to replace a handset or re-assign the designated handset number of a registered handset, you must de-register all the handsets and then individually register each handset.
To de-register all handsets:
Press and hold
FIND HANDSET
on the telephone base for about 10
seconds (until the IN USE light on the telephone base turns on and starts to flash), then release FIND HANDSET
.
Press and release
FIND HANDSET again. (You must press FIND HANDSET
while the IN USE light is still flashing. The IN USE light flashes for
approximately seven seconds.)
All system handsets show
CONNECTING...
The de-registration process
takes about 10 seconds to complete. All handsets show
NOT REGISTERED
when the de-registration completes.
If de-registration fails, you might need to reset the telephone and try again.
To reset:
Pick up the registered handset and then press
/FLASH
.
Press
OFF/CLEAR
and place the handset back in the telephone base.
-OR-
Unplug the power from the telephone base, then plug it back in.
note:
You cannot de-register a handset if any system handset is in use.

After de-registering, proceed with registering process:
If the handset screen does not show LOW BATTERY
or HANDSET X, you will need to charge the handset for at least five minutes before registering to the telephone base.
To register a handset:
Place the unregistered handset in the telephone base or charger. If
PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE
does not appear on the handset screen after a few seconds, remove the handset and place it in the telephone base or charger again.
On the telephone base, press and hold
FIND HANDSET
for about four seconds (until the red IN USE light on the telephone base turns on) and then release the button. The handset shows
PLEASE WAIT...
and it takes about 10 seconds to complete the registration. The handset shows
HANDSET X REGISTERED
(X represents the handset number assigned)
and you hear a beep when the registration completes.

Can not register handset


The handset must be de-registered before it can be registered.
Try this:

1. To de-register the handset from another base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or
"Out of Range..."
enter *331734 [menu]
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base 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 "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all 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 that were registered
will display "Not Registered"

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

The manual is available from: www.manualslib.com
but does not fully describe these procedures.

Good luck !

Hand set says connecting even before it is reset with new base.


This sounds like a registration problem, each 'old'
handset must be de-registered from its original
base and then registered to the 'new' base.

NOTE: the CS6229 handles a maximum of 5
handsets. If you have a handset displaying
"Handset #5" then you have a 'fully populated system'
even if you actually have only one or two handsets.

You will need to clear each handset ( I ) then clear
the base of all registrations ( II ) before re-registering
each handset ( III ) up to the maximum of five.
=====================================

9. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery &
replace the cover

10. display reads "Not Registered"
===============================

( II.) To clear the base of all handset registrations
( if needed, else skip ahead to ( III ). )

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold

about 10 secs the "In Use" lamp will begin to
blink. 2. release the [Find Handset] button momentarily,

2. press # on the handset and set the handset into

3. within 30 seconds or so, the handset will either
chirp and display "Handset Registered", then
"Handset #x" or it will say "Registration Failed".

NOTE: the battery must be well charged prior to the
registration process, a weak battery may cause a
"Registration Failed". Charge the battery for a
few hours and try the registration ( III ) again.

Uniden Cordless Phone Model DSS7855. frequently fails to connect to an incoming call, with 'out of range' indication. The phone is less than 1 meter from the base station.


The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.

Using the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset. All this requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.

To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the ‘end’ button and the ‘#’ button simultaneously until the phone beeps. It will now be de-registered from the base.

However, the base will still have this handset in it’s record.

To de-register all handsets from the base, remove power and the base handset. Press and hold the ‘flash/find hs’ button while applying power. Wait for the beep and release the button. The charge light will now flash. Sit any handset in the cradle. When the flashing stops, all handsets are inhibited from connecting.

However, the handset still appears to be connected to the base unit. Pressing talk will give an ‘Unable to connect’ message. To re-register the handsets to the base, you have to de-register the handset first with the two button method.

Of interest, pressing ‘*’ and ‘#’ on the handset while reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the same on the base unit puts you in some sort of diagnostic mode. Press speaker to exit.
