Is the base station too close to another electrical appliance as it could interfere with the signals. Try moving the base station to another location to see if that solves your problem.

    No, I have two other handsets that work fine but this handset repeats t23 pd then searching for base over and over again and won't let me press any of the buttons.

    Have you tried removing the battery for a few minutes and replacing it again so it resets and searches for the base station agin. Is this handsets battery ok or could it need replacing ?

AT&T EP5632 phone won't register or find base.


I had the same problem happen to me as well and I took the batteries out of all handsets, and unplugged the base for a few minutes. Then plugged in the base, reinstalled the batteries and it registered all handsets lickety-split. Hope this helps you.

Sir, what is wrong with my vtech cordless phones, im always getting this...


If you're having problems with clicking, like the edges are hard to click, or the screen in general is hard to click, the following is how to remedy it.
Tools:
  • Torx T6 screw driver
  • Small needle
Steps to follow:
  • Take off back cover
  • Locate red sticker (water detection sticker)
  • There is a t6 screw under the sticker and directly across from it
  • The problem is that sometimes these screws are too tight
  • Start by loosening the exposed screw a tiny bit, then check the clicking on the screen - if this doesn't work, loosen a little more. If the clicking still doesn't work correctly, move on to next step
  • Remove the sticker with the small needle (this will not void your warranty) - loosen the screw as you did with the first screw -
  • Check the clicking to see if it works better - if not loosen screws more
  • Replace the sticker
  • Replace back cover
Your screen should now be clicking better. Thanks

Phone on base showing it is "searching" for base.


check to see if the power cord is properly plugged in. You may have the phones on the wrong cradles, this wil cause them to search.

Channel Searching message, but phone is right next to unit


If your phone worked fine and this problem just started happening and seems to be getting worse, I would change the battery, even if the charge light indicates that the battery is charging and you "think" the battery is charged.

Most of these weird problems that start occurring in a phone that always worked fine are caused by the battery goinf dead. You can buy a replacement battery on ebay for like $6-$7 with shipping for most models of cordless phones. I sort of rehab cordless phones that I get at yard sales and at goodwills and sell them on ebay. Out of 50 or 60 so far, I have never found a broken one. I have found, however, plenty of phones that initially display all sorts of weird symptoms which are ALWAYS -- and i mean always -- fixed by a new battery. Good luck.

Phone always searching


Ah this issue I think evades any Phillips Phone User - But Alas a workable solution:

First, you must understand what happened. Basically your phone has become undetectable by the base and must be re-registered. Now, before you start to panic, its a very simple step. This is what I did, and had my phones up and running in a minute.

1. Collect all your hand sets and go to the base!

2. Unplug the power cord from the base and you see that speaker button, hold it down for 20 seconds. (Us tech geeks like to call this cycling power, on a spiritual level you are releasing all the bad energy!)

3. Plug your base back in. You will notice all your phones will read "Press Ok".

4. Do each phone separately.
a) Press "Ok" on the Handset
b) Hold down the Speaker Looking button on your base for 5 Seconds and Release
c) When done right, you will here a beep and your handset is good to go
d) Rinse, Repeat for each Phone.

All phones should now be ready to use. Hope this helps.

Always searching, cannot register to base unit


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.

My siemens gigaset 4215 and 4000 don't work and need some kind of code whats the code?


Hello, Almost never is it the handset that is bad when those symptoms occur. It sounds as if your base has gotten hit by a power surge and won't boot (the handset now can't "talk to" the base and its always searching for it). Most people report this after a storm has passed through their area. You can try re-registering the handset to the base, but unfortunately it probably won't work, sorry. You can order the base only and register your handset to the replacement base when you get it. To order a replacement base using google, search for Siemens Cordless Repair and click the first non sponsored link. Good Luck

We had the same problem.

"Our phones worked fine for two weeks but now you can not dial out
and when someone calls us they can't hear we say. The line still works
fine with our old phone1.gif."

To fix the problem, I simply unplugged the base AC plug from the outlet, waited about 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. Both handsets said searching on the display and then handset names returned to the display as originally programmed. The phones returned to operation as normal.

My phone can not reset


I am having the exact same issue! I tested the jack with another phone and it works. It is something in the phone. I suspect there is a "clear" button somewhere - but can't find the owners manual.
