Throw it away.  I've spend over $100 with new batteries, calling Motorola, emailing Motorola and moving phones around my house. My phone not only cannot find some of the handsets within the house, but sometimes will just drop the call...and that's on the base. Once the call is dropped, the handsets all say, "Looking for Base".  I am now throwing away all of my phones and buying a complete new system.  After loosing multiple business calls, I have given up.  Motorola is no help, They keep telling me its out of warranty, can only suggest that I unplug the system and re-plug it all in, in various orders with batteries and phone line connections.  Then told me I had possibly purchased the wrong batteries.  They sold them to me.  
Throw it away...it will save you HOURS and HOURS of pain and agony of these phones.

Hi, Bruce Kelly I have a Uniden DECT1480-3 That the screens on all hand set's say's SEARCHING. I can not get a dial tone so I am unable to make a call or recieve a call. Their is no dial tone and all of...


All of the handsets appear to have lost their
registration to the base and will need to
be first de-registered then re-registered.
It may be necessary to do this in three stages.
First be sure that all of the handset batteries
are fully charged.
1.
Clear one of the handsets of its registration:
hold down both the [END] and [#] keys
at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
Since the handset is not recognized by its
base, select "Base Not Available".
Confirm the choice by selecting "Yes".
This handset will now display
"Handset Not Registered"
--
2.
With "...Not Registered" displayed, place
the handset into the base unit cradle.
The handset should now dieplay
"Handset Registering"
After ~30 seconds the display should show
"Registration Complete" and will have a
handset unit number.
If the unit shows "Handset 1" (doubtful)
then just repeat steps 1 & 2 above for each
additional handset in turn. This can also be
the route if you do not care what the numbers
are and do not exceed the maximum count
for your system ( some are 4, 5, or even 12 ).
If the handset is a number other than 1 you
may want to clear the base & re-register
all of the handsets:
3.
Using the now-registered and working handset
(number x), press both the [END] and [#] keys at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
This time, choose "Deregister HS" and the
System Reset Menu will prompt you to
select from the list of registered handsets
which one you want to deregister: choose
one that is NOT the one you have working.
Cycle around deleting them all until only the
one that is working is left: select that one and
the system will be ready to start re-registering
all handsets again from Handset #1.
Start at process (1) above, then (2).
Good Luck!!

When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.

If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.

Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.

If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.

I hope this helps.

Vetch cordless phone says not registered and will not work....need help?


The handset needs to be registered with the base unit. Enter the model of your VTech phone into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual and see how to register the handset to the base.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...


Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.

TIP: IF REGISTRATION FAILED, REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656


To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

1. Take out the handset that sits on the base.
2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.
4. Hold down PAGE key for 5 seconds. When the In Use light begins to flash, release the PAGE key.
5. The handset charging light will blink 5 times. Within 5 seconds from when it stops blinking, press PAGE once.

You must register the handset(s) by following the steps below:

1. After charging the handset, remove it from the cradle, the LCD display will read "SEARCHING FOR BASE".
2. Press "NEW" and then enter the 15-digit Base ID code, located on the underside of the VT2656 base unit.
3. Press "OK". The handset will display "PLEASE WAIT!!".
4. Wait approximately 15 seconds. The handset will display "FOUND BASE". If the handset displays "BASE BUSY TRY LATER", this indicates that the system is in use. Wait until the base unit is in the idle (on hook) mode and repeat steps 2-4.

My siemens 4010 cordless phone is saying "Base Search" recently


"Base Search" will display for several reasons.
  1. The base station is turned off or not working properly.
  2. The handset is not registered.
  3. The handset may be registered somewhere else, de-register it.
  4. The units (both base and handset/s) may need to be reset to factory default.
You may have already tried this.
