Registering handset to base

Had a power interruption to the base of my beotalk 1200 (accidentally unplugged it).
Message on handset says, "Handset is not registered". THen I hit "ok" and it says "register handset to base?". Then I hit ok and it just continually says "wait".
I have turned the main unit on and off at the base unit as well as the main unit. Is there a reset for this machine?

Reset button on back of rectangular base unit (black and hard to see) - press it down and hold while you choose 'register handset' - should pick it up immediately.

I reviewed the user guide for that model, and I only see that it is an answering machine. I may indeed be wrong, but is there a chance you have a different model unit? Regardless of the model, normally you have to put the base in registration mode simultaneously when the handset it put in registration mode like you were doing before. If you do not have the user guide you can join Beoworld.org for $27 a year and download it for "free". I am curious to know if you have a different model or if you can register cordless handsets to the 1200. Maybe you can post an update. Just learning this model myself. Good Luck

Had to buy a new base for phones and got one phone with new base unit, within phone menus there is a place to Deregister the handset, but I can not locate how to Register the other handsets and nothing...


Hi, If there is not an option for registering the handsets then more than likely it is an automatic function-you may just need to place each handset into the base units cradle to register. Also maybe the base unit has a menu option for registering. I hope this helped, please write back if so and thank you for asking FixYa, Good luck-Prodzilla.

One of my cordless phones says not registered. How do I fix that? Also, another phone says check battery. Where can I get another battery? Warranty?


Put the non-registered handset in the master base unit. Unplug the base unit for about 10 seconds and plug it back in. Wait for a message to change on the handset and press and hold the handset locator button for 4 seconds. This will re-register the handset. Do not remove the handset from the base while performing the above steps. Good Luck!

My phone is saying "out of range" it wont let me make any calls. how can i fix it???


When the base and handset stop talking to each other, it is generally because of a power interruption. Modern cordless phones transmit a security code from handset to base, when you start a call. This helps reduce the likelihood that you and your neighbor will be talking over each other, if your phones are on the same channel. If they get out of sync, usually the phone will just beep "out of range."
  • To reset the chip which holds the security code:

    1. Place the phone back in the cradle for a slow five count. Then, pick it up and try it. If it works, you are done. If not, go to step 2.

    2. Unplug the telephone's base unit. Slide the battery cover off the handset, and remove the battery. Wait 30 seconds or so. Plug the base unit back in. Wait five seconds or so. Replace the battery in the handset. Place the handset in the base unit for a slow five count (as above). Now try it. This will almost always solve the problem.

    If this does not work, it may mean that the chip which holds your security code is now defunct and needs to be serviced. *

  • Clean the battery contacts in case the battery is not getting charged. Clean the charging contacts on your base unit with a pencil eraser. This gives just enough abrasion to rub off any oxidation, without impairing the chromed surface of the contacts.

  • If the battery is new and you are still experiencing problems, the phone will need to be services. Contact your authorized Service Center. *

"Extension in Use"


I found the solution accidentally. I just unplugged the phone from the jack and plugged it back in, and that did the trick.

How do you register a waterproof phone (TWX977) to a TRS9585


Not sure if you still have this problem, but...

Basically go on you base unit, and hit "MENU/SELECT". Scroll down to "REGISTER HANDSET" and click "MENU/SELECT". On your waterproof handset, hold the "#" key until it displays "REGISTERING HANDSET". And voila! After that finishes, your waterproof handset will be good to go!

My handset has a blinking icon, indicating not close to base


I found the 800 number to call, spoke to customer service, they gave me the suggestion of unplugging the base from the outlet, removing the batteries from the handset, wait 5 minutes and plug in and put in the batteries. Yes, that fixed it. And then the customer service technician called back later to see if it had worked. I thought that was above and beyond the call of duty. Certainly a good way to win customers!

Couldn't make any calls


You might try unplugging the base AND removing the batteries from the handset for 30 minutes. Then reinsert the batteries, place the handset in the cradle in the base, and then plug the base back in. This might allow the handset and the base to re-sync with each other.
