How to clear all registrations from the base

I was experimenting by deregistering and registering my 3 handsets by using the END + # key combination. After the maximum of 10 handsets registrations was reached, the base will not register any additional handset. All my 3 handsets are deregistered now and I can't register any one of them. My question is: How can I delete all the 10 registered handsets from the base so that I can start registering anew?
My Uniden model is TRU8885.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

You have to deregister all of the handsets and start over (as far as I can tell). Here's how to do it:

  • Unplug both the power and the phone line from the base.
  • Hold down the "delete message button while plugging the power back in
  • When you hear a long beep, all of the handsets are deregistered (not the short beep that just indicates the base station is powering up)
  • Reregister the handsets

There is a message "Searching" on the phone, How do I get it back to working.


You might try to de-register the handset and re-register
it to the base. Be sure the handset's battery is well
charged, a weak battery can impede the registration.

( I ) To de-register the errant handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time until the screen displays
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
2. press [select]
3. scroll to "Base Unavailable"
4. press [select]
5. display says "Not Registered"

( II ) To register the handset to the base:

1. open the base display's [menu]
2. scroll to "Register Accy."
3. press [select]
4. on the handset, press and hold [ # ] until
the handset display says "Registering"
5. In ~30 seconds, handset display will say
"Registration Complete" or
"Registration Failed".

This is described on page 22 of the manual.

HandsetS #2 and #3 work properly. Handset #1 has a display screen with correct datet and time -- but no dial tone, How can I fix this?


This sounds like Handset #1 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!

Hi, Bruce Kelly I have a Uniden DECT1480-3 That the screens on all hand set's say's SEARCHING. I can not get a dial tone so I am unable to make a call or recieve a call. Their is no dial tone and all of...


All of the handsets appear to have lost their
registration to the base and will need to
be first de-registered then re-registered.
It may be necessary to do this in three stages.
First be sure that all of the handset batteries
are fully charged.
1.
Clear one of the handsets of its registration:
hold down both the [END] and [#] keys
at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
Since the handset is not recognized by its
base, select "Base Not Available".
Confirm the choice by selecting "Yes".
This handset will now display
"Handset Not Registered"
--
2.
With "...Not Registered" displayed, place
the handset into the base unit cradle.
The handset should now dieplay
"Handset Registering"
After ~30 seconds the display should show
"Registration Complete" and will have a
handset unit number.
If the unit shows "Handset 1" (doubtful)
then just repeat steps 1 & 2 above for each
additional handset in turn. This can also be
the route if you do not care what the numbers
are and do not exceed the maximum count
for your system ( some are 4, 5, or even 12 ).
If the handset is a number other than 1 you
may want to clear the base & re-register
all of the handsets:
3.
Using the now-registered and working handset
(number x), press both the [END] and [#] keys at the same time until the display shows the
SYSTEM RESET menu.
This time, choose "Deregister HS" and the
System Reset Menu will prompt you to
select from the list of registered handsets
which one you want to deregister: choose
one that is NOT the one you have working.
Cycle around deleting them all until only the
one that is working is left: select that one and
the system will be ready to start re-registering
all handsets again from Handset #1.
Start at process (1) above, then (2).
Good Luck!!

I have uniden cordless phone model dxa15588-2, how do I register handset on base?


1-Press the hangup key (represented by a red phone) and the "#" key at the same time for at least five seconds.
2-Select "Deregister hs." Choose the handset and press the "Select" key (which also shows an envelope for messages).
3- Choose "Yes" to confirm deregistration. The phone clears its registration information from the base and deletes the link from its memory. The message "Handset not registered -- place handset on base to register. See owner's manual for help" now shows on the display. If you are out of range of the base, "Out of range" shows.
4-Place the handset in the base charging cradle. The phone automatically selects a new security code from those stored in the base.
5-Make sure your phone is working again after "Registration Complete" shows on the display
Hope this will Help. Thank you for using Fixya !!!

NEED TO DEREGISTER LOST HANDSET


The "END" and "#" key combination can be used for several purposes:

1) If wanting to use an ALREADY REGISTERED HANDSET on an alternate base, and if if the INITIAL BASE isn't available to deregister the handset:

1a) Press "END" + "#" until it for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
1b) Choose the "Base Unavailable" option
1c) That'll deregister the CURRENT HANDSET so that it can be re-registered on ANY base.

2) If a BASE has a handset registered to it which you no longer want registered but the registered handset is missing or broken:

2a) Grab another WORKING handset which is properly REGISTERED to the BASE in question
2b) Press and hold the "END" + "#" key for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
2c) Choose the "Deregister HS" menu option
2d) Pick the REGISTERED HANDSET # to de-register. (Every other registered handset EXCEPT THE ONE YOU'RE ON will appear in the list!)
