We have a DECT 122 - 3 hand set and base station. We have difficulty in obtaining a dial tone and unit screen on unit 1 displays the word "SEARCHING" on it. On the base station unit, the screen has the word "WARNING" flashing in and out all the time. Can you assist. Thank you Shirley

    Hi! Lee,

    First of all let me set the scene, you are dealing with a mature 70 plus year lady, who little or no experience or schooling in all this high tech, IT world we are now forced to be a part of.

    I have removed the batteries from the three phones and left them out for over an hour, on replacing the batteries, we are now faced with two handsets still showing "SEARCHING" on the screen and the third hand set, is blank with no life on the screen.

    On the two handsets, which are showing SEARCHINg they also have the two arrows, one facing UP and the other facing Down, which details on page 5, that this means there are other options, but does not give any other action to take.

    You also mention in your reply, about an advanced MENU but I cannot find any wording in the manual about advanced MENU.

    Can you suggest what other action I can take.

    It was nice to get your reply back so quickly.

    Kind regards

Hello Haggis,

This problem is with the batteries try removing them and let the phones sit for a little while... once you have done that put bats. back in and place on charger, if your still getting the error message do a reset under the advanced menu. If none of the above soultions work for you please contact me at and i would be happy to get some more details from you and see if we can figure this out

    that seems to be the only solution available, if that does not work the phones and the base unit must be returned to the manufacturer for warranty claim

I not have manual for Uniden dect 6 cordless phone on my phone I can't get any dial tone,I think I pressed a button on the phone either mute, intercom or redial, how to reset phone

If you have no dial tone the problem is most likely the base station has failed, nothing you can do will kill the dial tone (no button you pushed etc.) except a failed base station.

I have charged the base and the two hand sets for 48 hrs. This is a new unit. No dial tone/communication to any unit.

1st-check the intercom function of the units. No intercom recheck the battery connections ,look for a clear tape on them & remove. Recharge batteries.2nd- Intercom OK. Check base connection to wall phone jack. Interconnect phone cable may be bad. Good luck. Have a nice day.

Won't hold a dial tone go new batteries still a problem

Maybe trying to pair the handset with the base station will solve your problem. Look in the manual how the pairing procedure is done for your phone.

If the pairing procedure is done, and the handset finds the base station and there's stil no dial tone, check if the cable from the telephone line is plugged in the base station of the phone and check if the other side of the cable is plugged in the wall phone outlet.

I hope this will solve your problem.

Phone not working

Hi Pam,
Try these..1...remove your telephone line from base unit and fix it into a working land phone and check whether is it having normal dial tone.If it's having engage tone(beep beep...)remove paralleled phones and re connect to cordless base unit.
2.If line is ok (normal dial tone with full volume) & still display indicates line is busy, your main base unit must be having faulty components inside.Commonly these defects happen in thundering or surges through telephone lines.You have to take full set to a repair shop.

Thank you for these instructions. I have Siemens geigaset A120 with three handsets and one of the handsets stopped working about a year ago and my previous tries att registering it at the base station had failed and I was about to give up and buy a new set for 80 Euro, but I decided to give i one more try at registering and it worked the third time around. So do not give up. When one your hand sets stops working (no dial tone and can not call from it) try re registering as described above.

Philips hands free phone cd445 to re register to differant base at the moment phone display reades Re hasbeen used on another line

Press the menu button then scroll using the up/down button in the center of the handset to find ADVANCED SET in the screen. Press the menu button and the up/down button to select REGISTRATION in the screen. Press the menu button and the up/down button to choose the base station(the registered base station will be marked with an asterisk at the right in the screen). Press the menu button and dial the 4 digit master PIN when prompted(default master PIN is 0000). Press the page button(lower right) on the base unit for at least three seconds until there is a confirmation tone. Press the menu button to validate the PIN code. In the screen WAITING will be displayed. A confirmation tone is heard when the registration is successful. I have included a link to download the manual.

I have a Uniden DECT 6.0 phone set. I damaged one

On the base, open the menu and select Register Handset. The display should say Handset Registering.
On the handset you want to register, press and hold # until the handset display says Handset Registering (about 2 seconds).
DSL filterTelephone cordTelephone wall jack
In about 30 seconds, the handset display should say Registration Complete. Press Talk/fl ash and make sure you get a dial tone.
you don't hear a dial tone
the display says Registration Failed --
Making sure the handset is fully charged, then start over at step 1.
