I had a similar problem which I finally fixed. You did not say if any of your phones registered.
First try the following recommended by Uniden Support:
Your phone(s) should be fully charged before putting them on the main base.
Unplug the battery from the phone by removing the battery cover and removing the connector. Then, push the # and * key together and hold while you plug the battery back in (requires some dexterity). Continue to hold the two keys until you hear a confirmation tone. This will force the phone to reregister. Put the phone on the main base (if you are sure it has a fully charged battery) and see if it will reregister it to solve the problem.
That did not work for me. So, I followed the instructions to de-register the handset (even though it hadn't really registered). But, I also pretended like the Base was not available (because using the base in this step also failed).
1) Press and hold the hang up and # keys for at least 5 seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Select.
3) Select the base you want to deregister from, press Select and then move the cursor to Yes and select.
This causes the phone to delete any of its base information.
At this point, again insure that your phone shows the battery is fully charged and if it is not, put it on the stand alone charger base (not the main base). With the battery fully charged, place it on the base and try registering again by placing it in the main base.
If neither of these approaches help, contact support at Uniden.com.
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.

    This was SO HELPFUL! I checked a zillion other places, but only your explanation worked perfectly. Thanks so much!

    Same here. This should be posted all over the internet! De-registering and then re-registgering worked like a charm. Thanks.

    I had the same problem in that no matter what I did the phones would not register. On a whim, I took the battery out of the older phone I was disposing of, clicked it in new phone, let it charge just a couple minutes, and it registered right away! CHECK THE BATTERY if all else fails!

When you select register on the base, you need to press and hold # on the phone... the instructions below worked for me, finally, to get the stupid waterproof handset registered. whew!

===

Registering the Handset

If you have purchased this accessory handset separately, it must
be registered to the base before you can use it.

Notes:
• The handset must be fully charged before attempting to register.
• Only one handset can be registered at a time.

1) If the other base has an LCD display:
• With the phone in standby, press [Menu/Select] on the base. Press [down] to move the cursor to REGISTER HANDSET and then press [Menu/Select]. HANDSET
REGISTERING appears.

If the other base does not have an LCD display:
• Disconnect the base AC adapter. Then press and hold
[find hs] or [find] while you reconnect the adapter. Keep
pressing [find hs] or [find] until the charge/in use LED
starts to blink.

2) On the handset, press and hold [#] until the handset beeps and displays HANDSET REGISTERING.

3) When the handset finishes registering, it shows REGISTRATION COMPLETE in the display.

    Thanks for the solutions posted. I've tried all the suggestions but the only one that worked for my phone is the one disconnecting the AC adapter of the base and pressing & holding the [FIND] on the base while reconnecting the AC adapter. The handset was successfully registered after placing it to the base.

The above solution worked for me. For some reason after removing the battery, pressing * and # together, replacing the battery, and then trying to program register the phone, it actually worked.

For me I needed to pull the power from the base, hold the find button while reconnecting power, then put the handset in the cradle. I had to repeat this for each handset that I was adding.

I cant dial out it says register HS i am not familiar with the procedure.

When you reset a handset (or if you buy a new one1, that handset displays a Handset Not Registered message. If you see this message on a handset, you need to register it to a base before you can use it.

Does the handset fit in the base cradle?
Yes
No
Place the handset in the base.
The display should say Handset Registering.
1. On the base, open the menu and select Register Handset. The display should say Handset Registering.
2. On the handset you want to register, press and hold # until the handset display says Handset Registering (about 2 seconds).
In about 30 seconds, the handset display should say Registration Complete. Press TALK ( )/FLASh and make sure you get a dial tone. page29image32024

Uniden dect 6-0 says its out of range but its by the base

Make sure the handset is registered to the base. Since you didn't specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system I can only suggest you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

I have Uniden DECT1480-3. I purchased two expandable handsets, but I cannot figure out how to get the new handsets to register with the base unit.

Up to 6 handsets can be registered with the DECT 1480 phones. I have the 5 phone unit and needed to add the 6th phone. All I got was "Searching" in the display and the battery wouldn't even charge!

So here's what you have to do to get additional phones (up to 6 units) to work with the base. If you can get past step 1, it's a snap...

Step 1: Place a charged battery in the handset. This could be a problem if all your handsets are not registered, since unregistered phones don't charge (who thought of that design?). What I did was SWAP the battery from an already registered and charged phone with the new unregistered phone.

Step 2: Here's where the magic happens. Press the 'END' and '#' keys simultaneously... hold them down until a System Reset menu appears. Select "Deregister HS" and press Menu.

Step 3: Now, do the same thing again (hold down END and #), but this time select Base Unavailable and press Menu. You will see Base Unavailable Yes/No... Select Yes. Then place the handset in the base, wait a few seconds, and Voila!. it's registered. You can even change handset numbers using this menu if you play around with it.

Thank you, helpful employee at Costco for supplying the magic code. And hey there, UNIDEN... including this in the operation manual would have saved many customers much grief with de-registered phones!

Enjoy!

How do I remove the Searching display from my Uniden 2080 DECT 6.o?

I also looked at your manual. If the handsets are registered to your old base, you need to deregister them from looking for the old base. Then you need to register them to the new base. Hope thsis helps!

Uniden dect6.0 handsets do not operate

I am writing for my Mum, who is 99. We live far apart, so it is a bit difficult to fix her problem. She had a new Uniden DECT 60 (?) installed in early July. It seemed to be working fine when we left her, but she says it only rings twice before going to voice mail. She says it has always been like that. How can we fix this for her even though we live at a distance?.
