Deregister cs-6629 handset


If your handset will not deregister, before registering it on a base. Here are the steps;

Menu/Select *7890#
It will display "Test Base" arrow up to "Test Handset"
Press Menu/Select It will display "SW Version"
Arrow up to "next page"
Menu/Select to display "Regstr Clear"
Menu/Select to display "Reg Clear?"
Menu/Select you should hear a beep.
Unplug battery and wait 10 seconds. Lug in battery and place phone in base to register it.
No other handset can be in use when you register new handsets.

Worked great for my 3 handsets that were registered to a base that went bad.

My vtech dect 6.0 keeps saying unable to call try again


I had this happen suddenly on 2 out of 3 handsets with a DS6151 base and DS6101 handsets. Well, what happened is there was no dial tone on either of the 2 handsets on either of the 2 lines and a message appeared on the display "Unable to Call Try Again" after some delay, if Line1 or Line2 button was pressed.

Oddly, the 2 that did not work were the ones normally on "extension" chargers and the 1 that did work was the one on the base unit. That caused me to suspect the base unit .. which it still may have been but the solution was NOT. And, also odd, the handsets seemed to still be synched with the base unit in many respects.

Cycling the power on the base unit did nothing.
These are fairly new units and battery life is generally much longer in my experience.

The Solution:
- Remove the battery from the handset that doesn't work properly.
- Re-install the same battery.
Whatever was wrong, this reset it and the handsets started working again.
Easy fix.

I have a three handset 6.0 v tech. the one handset keeps beeping. What is going on?


With vtech phone (many times) a beeping handset indicates a low battery or an inability to connect to base station. check to make sure the battery is connected correctly and that the phone is setting in its docking station correctly. (remover and obstructions that would prevent correct charging) If this fails go to your local store that sells batteries for cordless phones and purchase to correct type.

No link to base


This may help. It's from the Panasonic help page:

You may try to:

Disconnect AC power adapter from the back/bottom of base unit, then connect it again properly.
spacer.gif OR, to resolve this issue, you have to re-register the handset.
  • To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the phone base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

  • To do this on a expandable cordless phone system:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button for the extension that is displaying "No Link To Base" on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset that is displaying "No Link To Base" until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

My Phone will not connect to the base unit...


My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.

This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.

What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

Vtech i5858 (edit)


I've heard many people complain about how bad this phone is because of this. I owned the phone for a year before it happened to me, but it did happen. It only happened after left off the charger, even if only left off for a short while. What most people don't understand is that if it only works right off the charger, is that it's probably a dying battery. Instead they blame it on the phone like ****. I replaced the battery and haven't had an issue since.
