May be your base just doesn't support 3 phones at the same time. Try to turn off one of the working phones, reboot your base and reregister the one that you have problems with. If it works then turn on the turnedoff phone and try to register it, if the same problem appears with this one, then your base just doesn't support 3 phones at the same time.

1. Press & hold End and # at the same time until you see the System Reset menu.

2. If you still have the base the handset is registered to, select Deregister HS, then select the handset you want to reset. If you don't have that base anymore, select Base Unavailable.

3. To confirm, select Yes. The handset displays "Handset not registered"


Now you want to register the phone again.

1. Place the handset in the base; the display should say Handset
Registering.

2. Wait until the display says Registration Complete (about 30
seconds), then pick up the handset and press Talk/flash.
You should now have a dial tone

Handset says searching


Searching means its searching for a signal. If the phone cant contact the base it will say searching. Make sure the handset is in range of the base and the base is connected to the power.

Searching and out of range message keep appearing. Can't dial out or receive calls Uniden Dect 6.0 (both phones) Tried to register base but unsuccessful.


Hi,

This is because of the following reasons

1.The handset is far away from the base unit.Try to bring the hand set near the base unit and try.
2.The base unit is not plugged in to the power supply.Please check it.

Thanx

Why wont my phone work just keeps saying searching all the time,my phone is a binatone icarus 2020


If this is a cordless home phone, then it's likely that something in the base unit got fried. I've had 3 different sets of phones die the same way, usually after a thunderstorm. Not worth fixing. Easier & cheaper to replace.

My house phone keeps saying bs search and wont call out or recive calls


bs meaning of course - Base Station...

There is no link between your cordless set and the base station, hence the message.

I would do what SpencerR stated, try to re-establish the connection via the base station to accept the handsets again.

Have the cordless sets worked before?
It may just have a hick up, I would un-plug the base station and leave it un-plugged... now get all the cordless sets, and take out the batteries in the cordless set. Wait for about 15 seconds for all the power to drain out of the sets, and re-install the batteries.

Once all the cordless sets are back up and working, plug in the base station and wait for about 1 minute.
This forces the base station to re-establish and link to the cordless sets.

Good luck

Searching....


The problem of searching.....

After trying all the technician's suggestions had failed; I disconnected the base to return it to the store for replacement. Then I decided to try disconnecting and reconnecting power and phone line, placed handset back on base and the phone reset itself and is working fine...

Recap:

Disconnect power and phone line from base for about 30 seconds and reconnect both power and phone line to base and place handset back on base; it should reset...

Phone says searching


The battery may be weak. Or it is too far from the base. Try exchanging the two. take the handset near the base and see if it will link.
