24Ghz Vtech phones cant find base

SOURCE: can put in base id

Did you try this (from the i5801 manual) -

To register a handset to the base, follow these steps:

Step 1: If ENTER BASE ID is displayed on the handset, proceed to the next step; if not, press MENU on the handset, then press ▼ until REGISTER is highlighted; now press OK.

Step 2: Locate the 15-digit Base ID number by pressing, at the base: MENU, then press until DISPLAY BASE-ID is highlighted, then press OK.

Step 3: Carefully enter this number using the handset dialpad. If you make a mistake, press to backspace. When finished, press OK.

In a few moments, the handset will be assigned a number (1-6). This will be the lowest available number in the sequence not previously assigned to another system handset.

Step 4: Repeat the procedure for any other unregistered system handsets.

Reply back if you have success. The Base ID is not from the bottom of the base unit, but is something you get by following Step 2 above.

SOURCE: Phone is asking to 'Enter Base ID'. Where is base

You don't have to key in the ID, just put the phone back into the charging cradle of the base unit. It will then re-sync itself to your base unit's ID.

Bought a used vtech 5.8 phone, charged the battery and now see message "not registered. I can not make calls... how do I register it?


I believe it is telling you it is not registered with the Base Unit. You did get the Base Unit with it didn't you, otherwise you have a paperweight.

If you do have a set then this is the answer

Tip 1 of 1
Step 1: Place the handset in the base or charger. If PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and recradle it in the base or charger.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for approximately four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while, the handset will emit a series of tones, and the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

Over the last few months, one by one, 3 of the 4 phones have failed (dead - will not receive calls nor can I transmit) & will not recharge in their individual base receptacles or even if I switch them...


All the phones that are messing up probably need a battery change. Its very simple just take off the back cover and take the battery to an electronic store they will show which one you need to replace it.

Not receiving incoming calls was talking to my


I used to have this exact model. More than likely, your battery has become "unrechargable". I used to buy replacement handset batteries from ebay every 6 or 7 months. After 3 years, I finally got rid of the phone and purchased a nice Panasonic (just cheaper these days!)

The replacement batteries usually sell for $3 or $4 on ebay. Here's a link of one that's one now: http://cgi.ebay.com/Battery-V-TECH-IP8300-DECT-6-0-89-1326-Cordless-Pho-/330486596555?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf28943cb

Phones stopped working. They only read


first step is to unplug all power and phone connections from the wall for all Vtech phones and bases.

Second,plug each set and base in the wall for power one at a time.

Go back to the basics and pair the handset with the base of the unit.

Do this for all sets one at a time.

Phones stopped working. They only read


I'm not familar with the Vtech but I would suspect that all 4 units work off of the answering machine base. It sounds like it is seeing a dial tone.
Take a working phones like the wall phone, if it is easily removed, and use a known good connecting cable between the good wall phone and the jack that the Vtech is plugged into.
If that works, take the connecting cable loose and replace it with the Vtech connecting cable. If that works check the jack on the Vtech for crossed wire. If non found, connect it to the jack the wall phone was plugged into. If this doesn't provide satisfaction, let me know exactly what you did and what happened and we will go from there.

Well it sounds like a combo of both. Definitly get the battery replaced again. The phone itself probably needs new software. take it your service provider's corp store to get the software updated.

This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.

Phones cant find base


I have two handsets, one of them recently starting dropping the connection to the base quite regularly [even if it was just inches away], and I ended-up in the same situation after unregistering the phone.

In my case, I was able to remove the battery from the phone [as you did] but also unplug the power on the base unit for several seconds. After restoring power to both, I was able to re-register the handset and it appears to be working more reliably now.
