SOURCE: GE 25931 Cordless Unavailable

I had the same problem recently due to a power outage during a storm. GE advised to disconnect the power cord and telephone cord on the "mother" unit. Wait five minutes. Then plug it back in.

I placed the "mother" phone back in the base. After the screen flashed on the "mother" phone, I removed it and then put the other two portables in the "mother" base.

This corrected my problem and all is now well.

SOURCE: Extra handsets no longer seem to work. No ring and no line

Please be sure to put the extra handsets in the MAIN base station to register. They will not register in the small remote charger stations.

Let me know if that fixes the problem!

SOURCE: my Uniden cordless' handset and the base wont register Can it be bypassed or decoded

Here it is step-by-step: 1. Remove battery

2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it’s workable)

3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.

4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok

5. Remove battery (yes again)

6. Reinsert battery (this time there’s no need to hold down any buttons)

7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)

8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

SOURCE: Uniden DECT2085-4WX: waterproof handset displays "Please Wait"

Hey! I have the SAME exact handset. I HAD the same exact problem except this is what you NEED to do:



On the bottom on the handset, there are two "HOLES".

There's a smaller "rubberized" hole and to the right, a later "Double Layer" hole.

The a ball point pen and GENTLY push into the lager, "double layer" hole.

You will then hear a CLICK or a POP. THIS IS OKAY.

Your phone should now be placed on the charger for at least 25 hours prior to first use.

This procedure will ONLY need to be done ONCE.

This is necessary because the battery pack was factory installed by Uniden, therefore the installed battery is NOT "contacted" to the phone's circuit, yet.

WHEN YOU "CLICK" the SEAL w/ a BALL POINT PEN, you are "CLICKING A METAL CONTACT" inside the phone, which causes the battery to make contact with the phone.

After this, I AM SURE YOU WILL NOT have this problem again! :-)

HOPE THIS HELPS!!

Having problem connecting: handset out of range


This sounds like the handset has lost its "registration" with
the base. De-registering & re-registering is often easy.

First, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a
weak battery will interfere with the registration process.
Then try this ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, & 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,
within ~30 seconds the handset should display
a "Handset #" and be good to go...

Good luck!

Uniden phone stuck at searching, not getting a dial tone


One thing to try is deregestering your phone and registering it with the base again.

Hole the # and 'End' key on the handset until the next menu appears (about 5 seconds). Select deregister phone (use the 'Menu' button). Do it again, but select "base unavailable". After that, set them in the base (not the handset charger) and they should register with the base.

This works on most Uniden model phones.

Hello
Connect the phone line and power UP the base unit. Place the handset on base to get charged. It must reset automatically when you place the handset on base to charge. If not; resetting both handset and base unit is necessary.
Resetting the Handset

You may need to reset your handset in the following instances:

You lose a handset and purchase a new one. When you try and register to your existing base you get registration

failure.

You are unable to register any handsets to the base.

You had a base which needed to be exchanged by the manufacturer. When you register your existing handsets

to the base, the handsets say #3 and #4, but you only have 2 handsets.

When you are instructed to by the one of the manufacturer's call center representatives.

To reset, do the following:

Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select DEREGISTER HS.

WHICH HANDSET? appears. Select the handset that you want to de-register, and press the OK soft key.

DEREGISTER HS appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key.

ARE YOU SURE? appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The

handset will clear its registration information from the base, and then delete its own base information.

MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER TO OWNER'S MANUAL. To

re-register the handset to the base (see page 25).

If the handset cannot contact the base, it will display OUT OF RANGE. Make sure the handset is in range of the

base and the base is connected to power.

Note: It is also possible to reset the handset back to its original factory settings. All changes including Caller ID information

will be erased. For more information on resetting the handset back to factory settings and when you need to

do this, see www.uniden.com or call our Customer Service Hotline. See back cover page for contact information.

Resetting the Handset without the Base

If your original base is not available for some reason (for example, it is lost or somehow incapacitated), you can still

reset the handset and use it with another base.

Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds.

Move the cursor to select BASE UNAVAILABLE and then press the OK soft key.

BASE UNAVAILABLE appears.

Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key. ARE YOU SURE?

appears.

Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The handset

will delete its own base information without trying to contact the base. When the base information is deleted,

the handset displays MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER
TO OWNER'S MANUAL. Register the handset to the new base (see page 25). of its user manaul.
OK.

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.

Phone message reads


If you are not too far away-not "out of range" then try rehoming/pairing the handset with the base unit. You probably need the phones together to do this. Your manual will explain how-it will have been done in the original setup.

My new hand set will not detect my base


Have you followed the instructions for handset registration? For some of the newer handsets, you may need to refer to the instructions that came with the handset (and not the base) instead of just putting the additional handset in the base to register it.

Page 23 of the 9480 manual gives explicit registration instructions.

Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Note:
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.
