Question about EnGenius Phones
SOURCE: Cordless phone 25881
Sounds like a power problem.
This model of phone will work as a regular corded phone when no ac power is available.
IE the cordless function is only available when you have electricity.
- is the ac adapter plugged into a working outlet.
- is the ac adapter working.
- is the ac adapter pluged into the base.
hope this helps

From the Handset Setup Menu:
1. Press the caller ID-volume ( 5 or 6) button to scroll to the TONE PULSE sub-menu.
2. Press mute/program button to enter the menu. TONE/PULSE 41TONE 2PULSE shows in the display. The default setting is “1 TONE”.
3. Use the touch-tone pad or caller ID-volume ( 5 or 6) to enter 1 TONE or 2 PULSE.
4. Press the mute/program button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and your selection shows in the display.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

Hi, I solved this issue this morning. "Searching" means the handset cannot find the signal from its base, and if you check your base, it's more likely than not, dead. In my case, I checked this by pressing any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc.,
there was no response (although the handset seems to recharge power fine for some reason).
Therefore, I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible (binatone 1800 Single at Comet - 14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the binatone instruction. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked.
Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 new handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good (no different from the previous genuine set) and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset.
I don't have any high regards to binatone specifically as a brand because our last corded phone system was rubbish and died shortly after 12 months guarantee but to me it looks as if GAP compatible cordless phones have certain life-span however cheap or expensive they are (while handset seem to last much longer). Threrefore, there is more incentive to buy a cheap base new (of any make that are GAP Compatible) then connect your old handset to this base and live on 12 months manufacturer's guarantee and hopefully more. On the web, I saw some comments that are saying GAP Compatible phones and base sometimes do not successfully register each other (despite even being of the same make or brand). Obviously the users make such attempt at her/his own risk but I can confirm that the above combination worked for me.
Just for info, to do the registration successfully, the both base and handset must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting".
I hope this is helpful.
The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning.
