Question about Uniden TRU9480 Cordless Telephone

1 Answer

Base doesn't recgonize handset

My previous model of Uniden phone was replaced because the base did not recognize the handset and consequently failed to charge. This was an incremental process that took several months before it stopped working. What happened was the red light did not go on when I put the phone in the charger cradle. After a little jiggling to get it seated right it began to work. Over time, it required more and more jiggling to find a connection. Eventually, none could be found.

Now, my new base unit is beginning to demonstrate the same problem. It requires a jiggle to get a connection. That's got me worried that the same forces are at work and it is only a matter of time before this system freezes up on me.

Is there something I can do to keep the connection between the phone and its base unit clean and functioning.

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

How do I register my Uniden handset? It keeps saying it tis searching and then out of range even though I have it on the cradle


Which Uniden phone do you have? Some should register with the handset in the base unit cradle for 30 seconds to a minute. Others need to be within a few feet of the base but not in the base charging.

For the models that need to be registered with a multiple step process, first make sure that the handset is fully charged; this could take 15 hours. (Make sure the battery is properly connected; if it is loose, the registration may fail. If the battery may have been sitting in a warehouse for months, you may want fresh batteries even for a new phone.) Make sure that the base is plugged in (power and telephone line). I like to check the phone line with a basic corded phone for dial tone if there are any issues with a cordless phone. With some Uniden phones, a registration problem can be cleared up by disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it before attempting to register the handset. (Make sure that you do not have more registered handsets than the base can deal with. You may need to deregister all of the handsets and start over. Make sure that the handset is compatible with the base.)

The rest of the process requires you to have the handset close to the base and be relatively quick. (You need to tell the handset to get the registration information from the base and the base to send the information before they time out). For the D1688, at the base, you need to press Menu and go to the Register Accy submenu. Press Select. Then press and hold # on the handset you need to register until you see Registering Handset. Wait for the Registration Complete (or Failed) message.

For the DECT1060, the procedure starts at the handset. Press Menu and navigate to Add. Settings. Press Menu/OK and navigate to Register and press Menu/OK. Select the base number and press Menu/OK. Then press and hold the Find HS button on the base for 3+ seconds until the unit enters registering mode. Now on the handset, you need to enter a PIN that matches the one set for the base. (The default is 0000.)

If you still have problems with registering the handset, then it's likely that the transmitter or the receiver for either the base or the handset may have a problem sending and receiving the codes that synch the base and the handset. Most Uniden phones are not meant to be user serviced for this type of proble. You will need to contact Uniden if the phone is under warranty or decide if you want to replace or repair the phone through Uniden's support.

The manuals for all Uniden DECT 6.0 phones are available as PDFs from Uniden. See http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl for a list of all models or search for your specific model. On the manuals pages, the models are listed in numerical and alphabetical order.

I hope this helps.

How do i add another handset "uniden 6.0" phone to an existing phone and base unit of the same brand.I need the step-by-step instructions please. thank you!


First make to get a compatible handset.

For the Uniden D1660-2, the compatible handsets are DCX160 and DWX337. Make sure that you have not exceeded the number of handsets that the phone can support. The D1660-2 can support 12 handsets unless you use any DWX337 handsets. Then the limit is 6. (If you have more handsets, you will need to deregister some of them first.) Then allow the handset to charge. If the handset is reading "not registered", then place it into the base unit. You should see "Handset Registering" for about 30 seconds; then it will read Registration Complete. The manual for the Uniden D1660-2 is available here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D1660-2om.pdf . This is the most common Registration for Uniden phones; there are a few exceptions (depending on the base or the replacement handset). Check the appropriate manual (see below to find the manuals).

For the DECT4096, press Menu on the base and then navigate to Handset Register. When you see Handset Registering on the base display, press and hold # on the handset to be registered until you see Handset Registering. (It takes about 2 seconds.) After the display changes to Handset Registered, check for dial tone.

On a few Uniden phones, there is a Page/Handst Register button on the base. On those you navigate through the Handset menu to Handset Register (Menu > Handset menu > Handset Registration). Then press and hold the Page button until you hear a beep. Then wait for the registration to be completed.

Most Uniden manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl . Select your type of Uniden phone and scroll through the list to your model or use the search box to directly search for your phone and the manual.

I hope this helps.

HOW DO U CONNECT THE HANDSET TO THE BASE.ALREADY TRIED THE REGISTER BUTTON,DID NOT WORK.IT CAME WITH NO DIRECTIONS,WE BOUGHT AT A FLE MARKET FOR 5 DOLLARS.


Are you sure of the model number? The D1680 should register the handset when you put it on the base for 30 seconds. (You should see Handset Registering followed by Registration Complete.) Then press Talk/Flash to check for dial tone. On this model if the registration fails, charge the battery (or replace the battery and then charge that). Then repeat the registration.
The manual for the Uniden D1680 is available here: http://news.uniden.com/pdf/D1680om.pdf .

For other Uniden phones, like the DEC1060, you need to navigate through the handset menus to find the Handset Registration command. Then press and hold the Register Handset (Find Handset) key on the base for 3+ secondsThen the base and handset will synch. (Low batteries could interfere with the process.)

For the D3288, you access the base menu for Register Accy and then press and hold # on the handset for 30+ seconds. (You will see Registering followed by Registration Complete.)


Additional Uniden cordless phone manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl .

I hope this helps.

(with a flea market phone, my first suggestion is to try a new battery for the handset. They only have a given number of recharge cycles and you do not know the history. However, sometimes the chargers do fail and a new battery will not work. In that case, the phone should be replaced. It isn't worth the cost of out-of-warranty repairs.)

My cordless phone says "to register see owners manual for help" How do I get the phone working, it is a uniden DECT 6.0 Model DECT 1588-2


With the phone in standby, press MENU/SELECT on the base.
Move the cursor to select the Register Handset menu, and then press MENU/SELECT. Handset Registering will appear.
On the handset, press and hold # until the handset beeps and displays Handset Registering.
When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration Complete then show the handset ID number.
If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.
Note: If a handset has ever been registered to a base, reset the handset before you register it to a new base

Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Note:
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.
