Question about Uniden TRU8885-2 Cordless Phone
To De-register handset while original base present:
-Use De-register menu
To De-register handset without original base present:
-Press and hold "End" button, and while holding that, press and hold # as well.
-While holding * and # replace battery, and keep holding
-You should hear one beep (let go now)
-Press right menu soft button (at top)
-Should hear one beep and Clear EEPROM/RAM on screen
-Remove and replace battery once again (no need to hold any buttons now)
(USING ANY OF THE TWO METHODS ABOVE MEANT FOR NON-BASE PRESENT, WHILE BASE IS PRESENT WILL TAKE UP HANDSET SPACE ON BASE, eg. HS1 will become HS2, while base reserves HS1 name... a base reset will be required to deal with this).
Resetting the base itself (if you have any handsets deregister them normally before this)
-Hold 'Delete Messages' key while plugging power back until beep (88 or 0 messages may show)
-Press PLAY once
(To check that all went well, check to see if anything shows under ROOM MONITOR, nothing should be there)

Yes! To deregister units that are "out of range" or "unavailable" you hold the END and # button down for a few seconds and the phone will derigister. Place it back on the base to reregister. IMPORTANT! Push the END button first and hold BEFORE you push the # button.

Well the top selection did not work for me and Uniden is not answering due to unusual circumstances, I initially had the TRU8885-2 that I bought a year ago and I loved then. Now we have a big house and its like the ebay user failed to deregistering before sending them. No visible damage. Does anyone know of any other magic combination to reset the security clud?? Thx Wojo

Guess what? There is a "De-Register Handset" option in the handset menu. (I discovered it AFTER using the method above, which DID work for me.)

Hello RE; OUT OF RANGE/NO DIAL TONE I have had my telephone for 1 week now - I thought it might correct itself. I'm happy if its out of range/no dial tone and I need to de-register it once in a while, but 8-10 times a day. I dont think this is right. What is the problem? Was I sold a telephone with faults? - or, how do I fix my problem. Any help would be appreciated. My email address is [email protected] Treena Lewis

Yep the End and # key does the trick

Probably nobody here knows at the moment dear... I can give you a very lame advice, not because I think there's a good chance of it working, just so you're not left in the cold ;] Back when I had 2 identical phones with 2 different bases, we used to get mixed up once in a while and switched between the bases. I think I recall that it screwed the phones untill they were left to charge on their respective bases. This tells me that there is some sort of communication designed between the phone and the base when they are touching. Maybe what you could do is remove the batteries from the old phone for a day or two, let it reset, then place it on the base for the night. Like I said, this is a very long long shot, but I hope it works, or that eventualy someone who has seen your problem before will answer. Good luck!
