Question about Uniden DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone Expansion Handset

1 Answer

Phone says "Searching" and will not work.

I have a 2 phone set of Uniden DECT 6.0 phones, the one on the main base usually says "Searching" and when I press the call button, it makes three quick beeps and says "Out Of Range". The phone on the secondary base charger thing works just fine, though.

    I have the dect 3080-3 it they all say searching. Even the one on the base. I tried resetting the phones by unplugging everything, phone line, power, and removing the batteries. It worked ok for half a day, now it's back to searching.

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.

Handset won't connect to base unit


Try placing the handset in the base unit to register it. Then see if it is found by the base.

Phone not working


Searching means the phone can't find the base.

Make sure you registered each phone on the base.

If you have done this already, and are sure that the baseunit cradle has power, I'd return them as they are probably defective.

How do I remove the Searching display from my Uniden 2080 DECT 6.o?


I also looked at your manual. If the handsets are registered to your old base, you need to deregister them from looking for the old base. Then you need to register them to the new base. Hope thsis helps!
