Question about Panasonic KX TGA400B Cordless Expansion Handset
I followed the instructions on registering the handset with the base. It appears that both are registering because they both display "handset registering" and after a few seconds both handset and base beeps 3 times. However, when I try to make a call on the handset it displays "Invalid. Please register to the base unit".
I've repaired thousands of these kx-tga400b phones and we have the only improved keypad that eliminates the common keypad problems for good.
Does the cordless phone have a 3 in the top right corner after it registers to 3? If so, then it is registering correctly. If it THEN consistently says "invalid, please register" there is definitely a problem with the main circuit board and it's not at all common. I've seen a few of these but it's a rare problem. We can fix it but I'm not sure how much luck you would have with any other repair facilities.
If you have the problem intermittently it's probably a bad RF module. That's a much more common issue.

You could try to clear all the memory from the base unit and start again!!!
Instructions to clear phone (Uniden 8855).
1. Go to your base unit.
2. Put your flip phone in the cradle.
3. Press down and hold down (AT ALL TIMES) the end (find hs) button.
4. Whilst holding down this button, take the power plug out of the wall.
5. Whilst still holding down the end (find hs) button, plug the power back in.
6. When you hear a beep from the base unit system.
7. Let go of the end (find hs) button.
8. Your phone memory should be cleared now and you are ready to repeat the process of registering your base and additional handsets.

You may need to reset your handset in the following instances:
You lose a handset and purchase a new one. When you try and register to your existing base you get registration
You are unable to register any handsets to the base.
You had a base which needed to be exchanged by the manufacturer. When you register your existing handsets
to the base, the handsets say #3 and #4, but you only have 2 handsets.
When you are instructed to by the one of the manufacturer's call center representatives.
To reset, do the following:
Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select DEREGISTER HS.
WHICH HANDSET? appears. Select the handset that you want to de-register, and press the OK soft key.
DEREGISTER HS appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key.
