I have owned 3 handsets and bases for 5 years. Recently, one of the handsets started doing the following: When it is placed back on its charging base after a call, it gives a confirmation beep then continues to emit this beeping noise intermittently until it is either removed from the charging base or switched off. This is most irritating and makes charginf the handset problematic! I have tried moving this particular handset to the other two bases and it does the same thing so the problem appears to be with this particular handset. I recently replaced the batteries but this hasn't helped the problem.

Mine have done that as well.
After cleaning the contacts on both the handheld unit and the base itself, it seems to stop the problem. Try using a qtip that is wet with water or alcohol.

You will need to register it to your base station before it will work. You do so by holding down the registration/page key on the bottom of your base for a couple of seconds, and then grab your SL30 and push Menu, scroll down to the option of Handset settings, press OK, then scroll to "registration" and push OK, select base station 1, press OK, then enter the default pin of 0000 and press ok. Repeat these steps if first not successful. You can download a manual for free on our website at www.cordlessrepair.com
SOURCE: Handset won't work
I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.
You may need to reset your handset in the following instances:
You lose a handset and purchase a new one. When you try and register to your existing base you get registration
You are unable to register any handsets to the base.
You had a base which needed to be exchanged by the manufacturer. When you register your existing handsets
to the base, the handsets say #3 and #4, but you only have 2 handsets.
When you are instructed to by the one of the manufacturer's call center representatives.
To reset, do the following:
Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select DEREGISTER HS.
WHICH HANDSET? appears. Select the handset that you want to de-register, and press the OK soft key.
DEREGISTER HS appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Select YES, and press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The
handset will clear its registration information from the base, and then delete its own base information.
MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER TO OWNER'S MANUAL. To
re-register the handset to the base (see page 25).
If the handset cannot contact the base, it will display OUT OF RANGE. Make sure the handset is in range of the
base and the base is connected to power.
Note: It is also possible to reset the handset back to its original factory settings. All changes including Caller ID information
will be erased. For more information on resetting the handset back to factory settings and when you need to
do this, see www.uniden.com or call our Customer Service Hotline. See back cover page for contact information.
Resetting the Handset without the Base
If your original base is not available for some reason (for example, it is lost or somehow incapacitated), you can still
reset the handset and use it with another base.
Press and hold [ ] and [#] for more than 5 seconds.
Move the cursor to select BASE UNAVAILABLE and then press the OK soft key.
BASE UNAVAILABLE appears.
Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key. ARE YOU SURE?
Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone. The handset
will delete its own base information without trying to contact the base. When the base information is deleted,
the handset displays MODELS VARY! PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION OR REFER
TO OWNER'S MANUAL. Register the handset to the new base (see page 25). of its user manaul.
