Question about Uniden ELBT595 Cordless Phone
Purchased a new (not refurb) unit online. Base works fine but handset does not turn on even after charging on base for over 12 hrs!. Does the handset need to be manually turned on or should it be automatic after charging. Is this a handset charging problem? The charge light on the base lights up but nothing else on the handset does when it is in it's cradle. Can it be a bad battery on the handset?
Any answers will be appreciated
Check the handset battery -- if there is a slight "bulge" on one side (ie: not COMPLETELY flat) then the problem is with the battery. I had that problem and had to order a new one. That said, I just installed the new battery, and while it now charges, the handset won't connect to the base unit. The base unit works (tried the speakerphone), but there is not connection between base and handset.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The
handset will clear its registration information from the base, and then delete its own base information.
MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER TO OWNER'S MANUAL. To
re-register the handset to the base (see page 25).
If the handset cannot contact the base, it will display OUT OF RANGE. Make sure the handset is in range of the
base and the base is connected to power.
Note: It is also possible to reset the handset back to its original factory settings. All changes including Caller ID information
will be erased. For more information on resetting the handset back to factory settings and when you need to
do this, see www.uniden.com or call our Customer Service Hotline. See back cover page for contact information.

reset the handset and use it with another base.

the handset displays MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER
TO OWNER'S MANUAL. Register the handset to the new base (see page 25). of its user manaul.
