Hi.

Try doing a full system power reset. This is done performing the following, simply disconnecting the power adapter won't be enough:

  • Disconnect all power adapter cables from wallsockets.
  • Remove all handsets from cradles.
  • Remove all battery from cradles.
  • Fit back the batteries in their handsets.
  • Place back handsets in their cradles.
  • Connect power cables.

The procedure above will reset the system and will re-sync handsets to cradles. If that does not work, then some of the units comprised in the system is defective. In that case the only way of having the system fixed is calling the manufacturer and sending the units in the system back for repair.


Regards.

Ginko.

  1. Reset the telephone base. Unplug the unit's electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and telephone base to reset.
  2. Remove and re-install the battery pack in the handset, and place cordless handset in the telephone base. Wait for the cordless handset to re-establish its connection with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

If the unit does not seem to be responding normally, try putting the cordless handset in its base. If it does not seem to respond, do the following (in the order listed):
• Disconnect the power to the telephone base.
• Disconnect the cordless handset battery, and spare battery, if applicable.
• Wait a few minutes.
• Connect power to the telephone base.
• Re-install the battery pack, and place the cordless handset into the telephone base.
• Wait for the cordless handset to re-establish its connection with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

If none of the above work, the handset is more than likely incompatible with the base that you have.

There is usually no trick to doing it but the simple instruction of placing it in the base for about ? minute. Although some handsets just don't comply to other bases other than their original due to internal problems there fore will not connect to old base especially if the handset is fairly used. Try programming the new base to join the series of the old four that way you have solved your problem. Hope this solution has been helpful?

Can't seem to deregister the used HS I bought on Ebay since I don't have it's base.


1. To de-register the orphaned handsets from their old base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or "Out of..."
enter *331734 [menu]
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base and hold
it until the "in use" light comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ),
then release the button and set the new handset into
the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds it will beep
and display "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all in sequence.
( it is the only way to 'rescue' the places occupied
by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

1. Press and hold the the "Handset Locator" button
until the "in use" light lights and then starts to blink
( ~ 10 seconds ), release the button --
then press it again briefly while the "in use" light
is still blinking.

2. The base will beep and all handsets that were registered
will display "Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset
in turn to re-register them:
press "Handset Locator" ~ 4sec ( in-use light on ),
set handset into the base cradle, etc.

Phone is displaying "out of range or no power at base." How do I fix that?


There's the charger base cradle that plugs in to the phone jack and power socket on the wall. Make sure both things are connected. The phone handset requires that the charger cradle is plugged in with power and phone signal. Make sure you have done that.

Out of range or no pwr at base


It sounds like the handset has "lost" its registration with the
base ( or a replacement handset is being introduced ? )
Either way, the handset displaying "Out of range..." is now
orphaned and must be deregistered and then re-registered
to the new/current base.

1. To de-register the orphaned handset from the old base:
When the orphaned handset says "Connecting..." or "Out of..."
enter *331734# (menu)
and it will soon beep and display "Not registered"

2. To register the new handset to your base:
press the "Handset Locator" button on the base and hold
it until the "in use" light comes on ( ~ 4 seconds ),
then release the button and set the new handset into
the base phone cradle. After ~ 30 seconds it will beep
and display "Handset #" (next in sequence).

3: Note: the base handles a maximum of 12 handsets.

If your system was fully populated ( ie, a handset is
already # 12 ) you will have to clear all the handsets
from the base and re-register them all in sequence.
( it is the only way to 'rescue' the places occupied
by the lost handsets ).

To clear the base of all registrations:

until the "in use" light lights and then starts to blink
( ~ 10 seconds ), release the button --

is still blinking.

will display "Not Registered"

3. Follow the instructions above for each handset

Handset out of range


I'll give it a shot. Have you tried re-regestering the handset? Press and hold down the "end" key (on most models it looks like a red handset) while holding that key down, press and hold the # key, after a few seconds the unit should beep and show:
(SYSTEM RESET)
Deregister HS
BaseUnavailible

Useing the four-way key select "Base unavailable" and press the menu key The LCD display should then show :
"Which Base?"
Base #1

Select base one and then the display will show
"Base Unavailible
Yes
No

Select "Yes."

Your handset is now unregistered. To re-Register the phone to the base do the following. If the base unit has a charging cradle, just set the handset in it and it should register on its own, if you have a cordeed base, or the unit will not register when you set it in the cradle on the base go to menu and select register handset, then press and hold the # key on the handset for 2 - 3 seconds, it should beep and then start the registration process. If you have 6 handsets registered to your base, you will need to de-register teh non-working unit from the bases memrey before you will be able to re-register the handset.

My uniden phone says - out of range


Uniden wxi477 out of range fix

This problem arises when the handset does not communicate with the base.
These are the steps:
1: Deregistering the handset
2: Registering the handset to base

Deregestering clears the stored (incorrect) base information on the handset.
Reregestering allows the base to assign a new ID for the handset.

Deregistering- press and hold the OFF (red button) and the # button on the handset for 5 seconds. select base unavailable and press OK. Are you sure appears. select yes and press OK. you will hear a confirmation tone. The handset will delete its own base information without trying to contact the base. It will now display MODELS VARY PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION.

Registering the handset with the base- Make sure the tel. line and power is plugged into the base.
Press an hold the register button under the base (located between the tel. line and yellow power socket under the base) for 5 seconds until the red light flashes. At the same time press and hold the # button on the handset for 5 secs. You will hear a tone and It will now display REGISTRATION COMPLETE.

If it says registration failed: Retry the registration steps. Make sure the handset have enough battery power. If not charge for 15-20 hrs.
Check your connections on the base and make it is getting power.

The Steps above was my fix for the uniden wxi477 out of range problem.

Good luck.

Hand set out of range disply is on. How do I reset.


here are some tips from my manual for out of range problems
hope they help
• Only one handset can be used to make or answer a call anytime.
If another handset attempt to do so, the screen will display OTHER
HANDSET ON and then OR OUT OF RANGE. You might press PHONE
or SPEAKER again until no other handset is using the line. Use the call
transfer feature to transfer a call to another system handset
or use the speakerphone feature so multiple members of your
house can be on an active call at the same time.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the base. You might have moved
out of range.
• Ensure that the base is powered up.
• Place the cordless handset in base cradle for 1 minute to allow the
cordless handset and base to resynchronize channels.
• If the cordless handset is in its base and the charging light does not
come on, refer to the charge light is off in troubleshooting guide.
• Reset the base. Unplug the unit’s electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds
then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset
and base to reset.
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless
phone. Try installing your phone as far away from these types of elec
tronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, page
towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal
computers, kitchen appliances and cordless phones.

Handset has message Out of Range even though it is fully charged on on the handset.


The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone:
1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.
