Try another handset usually portable phones can have 2 3 or 4 handsets in the kit one is unusual if the second handset works then the phone is faulty usually the internal antenna cord has become dislodged which stops it being able to send or receive via the base
Solution 1 remove the battery cover & battery the remove the screws that retain the back cover of the phone & look around around for loose or dislodged connections.
Solution 2 get a 2nd hand phone off ebay (same make and model)
sychronise it with the base & if that works toss the faulty one
Solution 3 theses are relatively cheap Good Guys in Sydney
had Philips & Unident 3 phones & bases for under $50 recently
Solution 4 Get someone like me to repair the phone but it is likely to cost more than a new one to repair it, Pick a solution 1, 2, 3, or 4
When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.
If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.
Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.
If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.
Put the handset into the base when it's plugged in, the light on the phone should blink and connect.
As for the unplugging part, buy yourself either a surge protector (and a relatively good one, not a cheapie version) or a small UPS (a.k.a. a battery backup unit) that will protect your phone from electrical damage from storms.
With this most model of panasonic, you will typically find that the handset will say "line in use" when it is not, and you will have a busy signal when you call the phone from another line.
If you unplug the phone cord from the base, and the line is now clear and you now do not get a busy signal when you call it.
That problem is in the base, and not the phone itself. Its a common defect, that typically occurs after a storm has come through. Unfortunately it is not a setting or an easy component to replace. Your best options are to order a replacement base, or send your base in for repair (the chips that get blown cannot be purchased individually).
Better try to connect the phone to power surge to protect it from further danage.
Before sending the base to factory, try to take the battery out of the phone for a minute or two and then put it back in. Unplug the the phone (jack and power supply) including all extensions, then plug them in again and see whether it works...

Sounds like the antenna is not working, and signal is not getting to the cordless sets.
Try unplugging your base station (unplug everything; power and phone cable - the basestation were all the cords are plugged into) and leave it unplugged, pull out all the batteries in the phones, and then start by putting all the batteries back into the phones.
Once the phones are back and powered up, plug in the base station again, and see if that helps. All this is doing is re-setting the phones and base station and forcing them to re-link to each other.
Cordless phones are notorious for taking a hit from lightning storms. Your main base is more than likely the trouble. This leaves the remainer of the phone system ophans, unless you can find the same model of base system to replace it. The only testing you can do is unplug the every other phone in the home, and only leave the main base plugged in lto see if the line clears...it just may be one of the other, with a little luck. You may also want to try just plugging in a single corded phone to verify that line coming into home is good also.
James, plug the phone cord that comes out of the back of the CS55 base into the handset port of the Cisco phone, not the headset port. Then plug the coily cord from the cisco receiver into the front of the CS55. Don't use the "Headset" button on your Cisco phone, just lift the receiver off.
