Uniden Power Max 2- Missing one handset which is off-hook

We have a baby and I am guessing that she threw one of the handsets in the garbage or some other unknown place. It appears that the missing handset is off-hook and now none of the other handsets will work. The phone now appears busy to all callers. Any ideas on how to fix this? We may never find the third handset.. and would hate to throw away the phone.

    My 1-year-old daughter loves to take our cordless phone off the hook and "talk," and we are missing a cordless phone that she must have put off the hook, because now none of our remaining phones work. ARGH!

After de-registering handset, handset displays [REGISTRATION FAILED; UNAVAILABLE] when trying to register handset.

SOLUTION:
1) Remove handset from base

3) Press and hold the [find hs] button on base as you plug the power supply back in; the charge light should then be blinking.
4) Return handset to base and it should register

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.

I have an Uniden power max 5.8 GHz home phone but don't have the owners manual the handset won't ring and a icon of the bell on the screen is X ed out. i can't seem to figure out how to turn the ringer...


Sounds like the handset needs to be re-associated with the base unit.

If the manual for the Uniden PowerMax manual on the FixYa website for manuals is not the correct manual, go to the Uniden website and locate the manual there.

I need to deregister missing handset #1


To de-register HANDSET #1:

1) Grab any working handset which is registered to your base (so HANDSET #2 or #3 in your case)

2) Press and hold the "END" + "#" key for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)

3) Choose the "Deregister HS" menu option

4) Pick HANDSET #1 as the handset ot de-register (since that's the "phantom" registered handset)

5) Once de-registered, you can de-register handsets #2 and #3 directly from each handset's "normal" menu interface (i.e. press "Menu", choose "Deregistration")

6) Thereafter, if you re-register your handset, they should start at HANDSET #1, then #2, and so on.

1 Answer

We had Uniden model TRU8866. Handset #2 was damaged and lost. We purchased a new phone through Uniden. It says Set #4 on it. We would like it to say #2 The new phone is a Power max5.8ghz.


In order to re-register handsets with TRU8866 base unit, you have to reset the base unit, de-register the handsets, and then re-register the handsets. To reset the base station, disconnect the power from the base and then press and hold the CID, Intercom, and Exit keys while you connect the power. Wait for the beep, and let go of the keys. Now re-register the handsets - the first one will become #1, and so on.

Handset Won't Connect to Base Station


Here's is the fix, I just had the same problem.

I have 2 handsets here and just had replaced in 1 of the handsets.

Here's the trick, make sure the correct handset is in the correct base. The way this is done is when one of the handsets are in their bases, they will show either HS1 or HS2 in the upper right hand part of the display.

When they are in the correct base, then go push the Find HS button on the main base and you will hear the page feature paging the other base.

When the 2nd handset starts beeping just push the Find HS button again and other handset should work.

After that it don't matter which handset is in which base.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks,
Brian
