Question about Uniden DCX150 1.9 GHz 1-Line Cordless Expansion Handset

1 Answer

I just bought another handset (DCX150) to use with my Uniden DECT1580 phone and cannot get it registered for use. The phone is completely charged but after holding down the # key for 30 seconds (as instructed in the manual), I keep getting the "registration failed" message.

I had the same problem with the same equipment and I found this on the web. It worked well for me.
* Remove the base unit's phone from its cradle.
* Unplug the power from the base unit.
* press and hold the FIND button on the base unit, then, while continuing to hold down the FIND button, plug in power again. The CHARGE light should then be flashing. You can release the FIND button.
* press and hold the # (pound) key on the accessory phone you are attempting to register to the base unit and hold this phone OVER and NEAR the cradle/charging prongs until the phone goes through the registration process. (again, don't set the accessory phone in the unit, but just hold it near the unit).

Good luck!

    It worked!!! Thank you so much!

    Right on. After hours of frustrating attempts this worked the first time. Unuden should update their owens manuals.

    This process worked for me in registering my new DCX150 accessory phone with my DECT1560 base. My issue was 100% as described and this solution worked as described on the first attempt this day of 9/17/2011. I purchased this accessory phone from Walmart.com using their free shipping method site to store. Thanks much.

How do i add another handset "uniden 6.0" phone to an existing phone and base unit of the same brand.I need the step-by-step instructions please. thank you!


First make to get a compatible handset.

For the Uniden D1660-2, the compatible handsets are DCX160 and DWX337. Make sure that you have not exceeded the number of handsets that the phone can support. The D1660-2 can support 12 handsets unless you use any DWX337 handsets. Then the limit is 6. (If you have more handsets, you will need to deregister some of them first.) Then allow the handset to charge. If the handset is reading "not registered", then place it into the base unit. You should see "Handset Registering" for about 30 seconds; then it will read Registration Complete. The manual for the Uniden D1660-2 is available here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D1660-2om.pdf . This is the most common Registration for Uniden phones; there are a few exceptions (depending on the base or the replacement handset). Check the appropriate manual (see below to find the manuals).

For the DECT4096, press Menu on the base and then navigate to Handset Register. When you see Handset Registering on the base display, press and hold # on the handset to be registered until you see Handset Registering. (It takes about 2 seconds.) After the display changes to Handset Registered, check for dial tone.

On a few Uniden phones, there is a Page/Handst Register button on the base. On those you navigate through the Handset menu to Handset Register (Menu > Handset menu > Handset Registration). Then press and hold the Page button until you hear a beep. Then wait for the registration to be completed.

Most Uniden manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl . Select your type of Uniden phone and scroll through the list to your model or use the search box to directly search for your phone and the manual.

I hope this helps.

HOW DO U CONNECT THE HANDSET TO THE BASE.ALREADY TRIED THE REGISTER BUTTON,DID NOT WORK.IT CAME WITH NO DIRECTIONS,WE BOUGHT AT A FLE MARKET FOR 5 DOLLARS.


Are you sure of the model number? The D1680 should register the handset when you put it on the base for 30 seconds. (You should see Handset Registering followed by Registration Complete.) Then press Talk/Flash to check for dial tone. On this model if the registration fails, charge the battery (or replace the battery and then charge that). Then repeat the registration.
The manual for the Uniden D1680 is available here: http://news.uniden.com/pdf/D1680om.pdf .

For other Uniden phones, like the DEC1060, you need to navigate through the handset menus to find the Handset Registration command. Then press and hold the Register Handset (Find Handset) key on the base for 3+ secondsThen the base and handset will synch. (Low batteries could interfere with the process.)

For the D3288, you access the base menu for Register Accy and then press and hold # on the handset for 30+ seconds. (You will see Registering followed by Registration Complete.)


Additional Uniden cordless phone manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl .

I hope this helps.

(with a flea market phone, my first suggestion is to try a new battery for the handset. They only have a given number of recharge cycles and you do not know the history. However, sometimes the chargers do fail and a new battery will not work. In that case, the phone should be replaced. It isn't worth the cost of out-of-warranty repairs.)

Purchased addt'l handset to work with my CEZAI2998. It has a corded handset in the base and an accessory handset with charger. Needed another accessory handset; purchased EZX290 but can't get it to...


Hi,

The CEZAI2998 does allow up to a total of 6 handsets, but your issue is that the EZX290 handset is not one that will function with that system. I have listed below the compatible handset models for that Uniden unit and as you can see the EZX290 is not supported. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, hopefully you can exchange it for a compatible handset. Good luck!!

EJ

Compatible with select Uniden handsets
Including models DCX150, DCX200, DCX210, DCX290, DCX300 and DWX207 for wide-ranging compatibility.

I have a new Uniden cordless phone. The handsets


You can downlaod the manual from uniden in pdf form.
http://www.uniden.com/products/productdetail.cfm?product=DECT1580-4

the -4 or -5 refers to how many handsets you set. The 1580 is the actual model number.

To register I think all you do is place them on the master pad once then on their own charger stations. On some models they come all done so you just plug them in charge them up and use them.
