Why does screen indicate "searching"?


The handset cannot communicate with its base.

When the handset cannot establish its secure (encrypted) radio
link with the base it is 'paired with' or 'registered' to, it will first
say "Connecting....", then it will display "Out of Range or No
Power at Base", then it settles at the infamous "Searching..."
display.

Although rare, the registration between base and handset can
become corrupted and lost so that we must de-register and
then re-register the pair.

First, ensure that power is 'on' at the base (a more common cause)
and the cradle will charge the handset, etc.

Second, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a weak battery will interfere with the registration process.

Then try the following ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, and similar):

To deregister the handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

Next, to re-register the handset:

2. Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
after ~30 seconds the handset should display
"Handset #" and be good to go...
or it will display "Registration Failed"

Good luck!

Out of range/no power at base


Most multiphone sets need to have the phones hung up on the same base all the time. They are set up as set 1 and set 2 etc. Look in the screen, it should say which is 1 and 2. 1 is always the main base. Try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes. It sometimes takes that long for the equipment to reset itself.

Handset says searching


Searching means its searching for a signal. If the phone cant contact the base it will say searching. Make sure the handset is in range of the base and the base is connected to the power.

I get a message hand-set not in range. No charge light. Hook up appears OK. Second home phone works properly. Prior to problem I tried to dial a local no. but entered 8 nos. Phone says searching or...


Dialing the 8 numbers should not cause a problem.I have a few suggestions,you may have tried a couple already.Hang up the problem phone on the base unit for about 30 seconds.If that does not help,remove the battery for a few seconds and try the 30 second hang up again.Try unplugging the base unit for a half minute.I am trying to get it to reset itself and link to the base.Is the second phone part of this system too?We had a Uniden and I personally thought it ended up being garbage and will probably never buy another one.If you end up deciding to buy a new phone,the new technology is DECT 6.0 and is supposed to have better range from the base,clearer sound to name a few things.The strange thing about it is that it operates at 1.9 GHz.Also,if you decide on a new one,google DECT phones.There are all kinds of forums about peoples opinions/ratings of ones they have bought and used for a period of time.If you have any questions,just comment on this post and I will get an auto email saying you posted.Good luck!

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.

NOT SUB on head set


I had the same problem to fix it you press the menu button then scrool up untill you see REGISTER.

Press OK the display shows "BS 1 2 3 4" Enter the number of the base unit you wish to register the handset to.

The display shows "PIN code" (original code 0000) press OK the display shows "Search X (where 'X' is the number of the base you are registering to)

Press and hold the "page button" on the Base unit untill it beeps twice then after a few seconds the phone should work again.

registering again didn't work for me. I used the following steps
1. close the handset (long-press red button)
2. discconect the base unit from the power source
3. reconnect to the power source and long press the intercom (the only button on the base unit) for 5 seconds.
4. turn on the handset (long-press red button)
with 2 seconds and it will be connected again.

hope this helps.
