Question about AT&T 1717 Digital Answering Machine

1 Answer

Hello, yesterday, I purchased an AT&T 3 Handset phone set with the model no. of EL52309 and I came home and read the directions that said the phones needed to be charged for at least 16 hours and so today at 11am was the 16 hour mark. My phones are still not working and I need to know what's up. I did everything the little booklet said to do and it's still not working at all I hear no ringing from either phones and I can not dial out either. Please help me if you can?

Is the base in range of the other two bases, have you set each phone in the main base so they get aquainted., are you shure all plugins are snug? try a different telephone wire to hook up to the base from the wall (might be a bad wire) if that persists, try relocating the base, and test it their, if you are still without dialtone use a cell phone and call your tsp say it randomly stopped working and that you changed nothing... they will send someone out :P

Handset display says "Connecting" I can't deregister. How can I get the handset to display "not registered"?

The procedures to deregister are, of course, specific
to each make and model number of cordless phone.
All of them are a LOT more involved than simply
removing the battery.

For some AT&T, VTech, Uniden, & GE model numbers
you might try the following:
=====================================
For many AT&T models it is simple:
1. When the handset says "Connecting..."
enter *331734 [menu]
it will soon (chirp) and display "Not registered"
=====================================
For many VTech models it is a bit more involved:
1. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover.
2. press [menu]
3. scroll up/down to "Settings"
4. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
5. if display reads "Test Base",
scroll to "Test Handset", press [select]
scroll to "next page", press [select]
6. scroll to "Register Clear?", press [select]
7. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??",
press [select]
8. display reads "Ok" (chirps), press [ off ]

9. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY
(this is why the cover is off)
10. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery &
replace the cover
11. display reads "Not Registered"
=====================================
For many Uniden models:
1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the
same time, after a few seconds the display reads
2. "System Reset, Deregister Handset"
3. scroll to "... Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT]
4. Handset (chirps)
press [END]
5. display reads "Not Registered, Place in base..." =====================================
For some GE models:
1. press "program[mute]"
2. scroll to "Handset Setup" press "program[mute]"
3. scroll to "Deregistration" press "program[mute]"
4. scroll to "Yes" press "program[mute]"
5. display reads "Not Registered"

=====================================
Once you have the handset displaying "Not Registered"
you can follow the User's Manual instructions to register
the handset.

The model number for your cordless phone is shown on
a small sticker underneath the battery in the handset --
enter this number at www.manualslib.com to get a free
copy of the User's Manual if you need it.

Good luck!

WIFE`S CELL PHONE # IS BLOCKED, BUT IS NOT IN BLOCKED #S

Have her dial *82 before she dials the home number. If that works she has the cell phone set to block her number. *82 should unblock it for just that one call.

My vtech phone says not registered and not sure why and how come? can this be fixed or do i have to buy new one? model # CS6114 S# LR605935851

Here is a direct link to the User's Manual for your phone:

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above.

You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 26 of the manual for detailed instructions on HOW TO REGISTER THE HANDSET TO THE BASE.

Basically, the manual reads as follows:

Not registered appears on the handset and it does not work at all.

The handset may be deregistered from the telephone base.
Follow the steps below to register the handset to the telephone base.

1. Remove the handset from the telephone base.

2. Press and hold FIND HANDSET button on the telephone base for about four seconds until the red IN USE light turns on.

3. Then press # (pound key) on the handset.

It displays Registering... and it takes about 60 seconds to complete the registration.
The handset displays Registered for a few seconds and you hear a confirmation tone when the registration process completes.


I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

I bought 2 sets of the uniden DECT 1480-3. I want 6 handsets to work with one base. How do I add 3 handsets to a base that already has 3 handsets?

Jill,
The only logical way is to get the additional handsets to communicate with the base. And to do that you must set them to the frequency of the base. You Use guide will tell you how to set the frequency n the handsets to talk to the base. They way you set the original ones.
BUT, I doubt if this will work. Why? Because if that was the case if you and I had the same company phones, then I would stand outside your home and set the same frequency on my handset and misuse your phone. A great security risk in today's world. But there is no harm trying it out. Just set the same frequency on the additional ones as the base. If it works, then you will have that many more intercoms too. And do let me know if it works.

Phone is not starting should i get it changed.

may be due to some virus attack from the bluetooth,
the firmware of the handset has got damaged ...

so any way you have the warranty so just make use it .....

you can take the cell to the shop from where you have purchased the handset or you can visit the manufacture service center directly and make use of the warranty ....
