Hi,
Try the following:
1/ Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in at the base and that it's powered on ie: light is on and working etc..

2/ Reset the telephone base. Unplug the electrical power. Wait for
approximately 15 seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and telephone base to reset.

3/ Place the cordless handset in the telephone base for one minute to allow the cordless handset and base to synchronize.

My Electric went out the handset out of range?


All it is that the handset is not getting a signal from the base. Easiest way to get things back on would be to turn off the power to the base, wait a few seconds and then put power back on. See if the message goes away. Also depends how long the electricity went out. The handset battery may be weak and needs time to recharge to full rating.

See manual at this site if you need one.

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

I get Warning! use rechargeable batteries only. But they r rechareable, and changing them doesn't help


Reboot the base :
-Make sure the handset is HF and not on the base.
-Disconnect the base from the power supply and remove the batteries (only the base's, don't remove the handset:s batteries), soon, after a few seconds at most, the handset not finding the base when scanning for it, should go off by itself.
-Wait a moment (60 sec should be plenty) then reverse the last step (batteries+power-supply).
When reboot is completed (watch for the normal screen on the LED display) just put the handset back on the base again, 'voila' !

How do I deregister my handsets on my VTech 2656


To be able to register your replacement handset, you must de-register all the handsets from the VT2656 base unit.

Follow the steps below to de-register your handset(s) from the VT2656 base:

1. Take out the handset that sits on the base.
2. Unplug power from the base.
3. Hold down PAGE while reconnecting power. When the In Use light blinks, release the PAGE key.
4. Hold down PAGE key for 5 seconds. When the In Use light begins to flash, release the PAGE key.
5. The handset charging light will blink 5 times. Within 5 seconds from when it stops blinking, press PAGE once.

You must register the handset(s) by following the steps below:

1. After charging the handset, remove it from the cradle, the LCD display will read "SEARCHING FOR BASE".
2. Press "NEW" and then enter the 15-digit Base ID code, located on the underside of the VT2656 base unit.
3. Press "OK". The handset will display "PLEASE WAIT!!".
4. Wait approximately 15 seconds. The handset will display "FOUND BASE". If the handset displays "BASE BUSY TRY LATER", this indicates that the system is in use. Wait until the base unit is in the idle (on hook) mode and repeat steps 2-4.

I have a Presidian 6.0 Cordless phone with a second handset. The second handset displays only ''searching''. It does not display the Handset number


The base unit may need to be put into "pairing" mode to recognize the second handset. Check for that function in the base unit's set up menu.

Can't use the second phone GE model 25861GE3 5.8


You may have several problems. First, you should verify that the 2nd phone works. Unplug the battery from the "good" phone and place it into the "bad" phone. Then try to reset the "bad" phone by placing in the homebase charger for 2o seconds.

If this doesn't fix the 2nd phone, then it has an internal problem, possibly.

As far as the 2nd charger goes, please verify that it works by placing the "Good" phone in it to see if it will charge it.

Additionaly, you may need to "reset" the whole system. Do this by :
1 Unplug phone line, power to charger base, and remove the batteries.
2 Wait a couple of minutes.
3 Plug in battery first, then phone line, and finally the power cord.

Then try to set the phones in the basecharger. (If the new battery is not charged yet, then you will have to charge it first!)
