PHILIPS ID937 phone.

One of the handsets will not work. I have tried re registering the handset to the base but still will not work. Won't let me Un register either. The 3 bars on the top left hand side just keep flashing. Cant get a ring tone. Tried new batteries and still no luck.

Any other possibilities????

Please help if possible???

Thank you

    Sam problems as others: a 2nd handset which has previously been registered with the only base station refuses to register with the base again. 2nd handset is useless. Contacted customer support several times - no response. Staying away from Philips products from now on.

Fixed:) Ok so I bought 2 extension handsets from different people off of Ebay, both new. First one wouldnt register or would say incorrect pin (0000). So I tried the second one, same thing. Here is what I did: When attempting registering, make sure the handset is physically on top of the main base station, IE charging. Start the registration process on the handset and press-hold (dont let go) the locate handset button instead of press and hold for 3 seconds (like the manual says to). If that didnt work, I removed the batteries and tried pressing and holding the same button for 3 seconds, then release. Wait 10 seconds, then press and hold for 3 seconds. Repeat. If the handset timed out and went back to the main unregistered instruction screen. I took the batteries out and tried again. It was a bit of trial and error but each cycle I removed the batteries to reset the handset. First extension handset took 20 minutes of head scratching, the second 2 minutes. Hope this helps someone. The build and sound quality on these units are great, the tech support....not so much.

How to register 2 Bell Cordless handsets on 2 bases?


Multiple handsets registered to one base works well.
The extra base can be used as a remote charging
dock without registering a handset.

Trying to register a handset to two bases is neither
possible nor useful.

Good luck!
----------------

OTOH, the specific model number was
not given. While I have never heard of
registering a handset to more than one base,
nor made it happen by accident, maybe we
all do "...learn something new everyday...".

What is the specific model number, and the
date of manufacture ? Thanks! a r t

Base unit not recognizing any handset


I recommend that you unplug the other unit and then register each phone separetly. While trying to register one phone make sure the other is un plugged.

My phone says no link to base but I am right beside it.


Sounds like the antenna on the base station is not receiving, or the cordless handset is not transmitting -OR- the sets have never been registered to the base station (please look up registering to base station, if the set has never been registered)

Did the cordless set work before?

The base station or the handset may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless set(s), and take out the batteries from the cordless set(s). Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, then re-install the batteries.

Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link between the base station and the cordless sets.

Good luck

Philips CD240 2nd phone wont connect - keeps saying searching


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. What you cannot confuse here is that handset and base. To do the registration successfully, the both 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". The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning. In my case, sadly, the base was more likely dead (if I press any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there is no response). Hence 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 CD240 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset. The BINATONE base came with 12 months manufacturer's guarantee so I am sorted with the base problem for at least a year, which is nice. I hope this is helpful. Best, Ken

Base station and units all say 'searching'


You may need to register your handset to the base.
Normally ,there is a advanced setting ,register handset. At the same time, press and hold "page" key on your base 4 to 5 second , there is be a registation success tone from handset. You can register all of your handset ,one by one. Some model need to input register code, normally ,it is 1234 , or 0000.

We have a Philips CD445 three handset phone. Unfortunately one of the kids have managed to UNREGISTER one handset. I have tried several times to reregister it but it does not see the base. Any ideas?


Make sure no phone is on the base. Bring unregistered phone to the base. Find the handset locater button. Press menu > advanced set > registration > base 1. When it requests a pin enter your pin 0000 BUT DO NOT HIT MENU YET. Hold the handset locator button ON THE BASE for 5 sec. then press MENU on the phone. It should register.

If you bought the base and handset together they should already be registered. If not then the instruction manual is downloadable here: MANUAL


The relevant section is on page 16 - here is a copy:

4 handsets can be registered to the base station. A handset
can only be associated with 1 base station.
�� To register another handset
First enter registration mode by unplugging and
plugging back in the power adapter to the
electricity supply.
Handsets registering / unregistering ( )
�� To unregister the handset you use
enter the RC code*
�� To unregister all the handsets (except the handset you are using)
enter the RC code*
Once the menu is selected, enter the RC* code written under the base and press
to confirm.
Warning : If you wish to associate a non-Philips handset to the DECT 211 or DECT 215 base
stations, make sure that these handsets are GAP compliant otherwise they will not operate properly.
*RC code
(Registration
Code) is
written under
the base.
Warning : Once unregistered, the handset is no longer operational.

Please rate my assistance this should be a fixya!
