GE 25942 dial tone problems

Brand new phone with 2 xtra handsets. charged them for over 16 hours. Did all the set ups including registering the handsets. This happens on all three handsets. Hit the talk button, get unavailable. Wait a moment try it again, may get 2 out of 3 handsets unavailable. Wait again, may get dial tone on all three hand sets. Then again may only get a dial tone on 1 handset. Note that I turn off each hand set after use, i.e. it says 'Ready' on the display. Note further, I don't want all thee to work at once as I don't think they work that way. I just would like for each to work when I hit the talk button. That seems to be a **** shoot.

After waiting for over 24 hrs for an answer from FixYa and then they wanted $10.00 and trying to fix it myself, I gave up. Threw all that c$$p into a box, took it back to the store and got my money back. It just wasn't worth the time and aggravation.

Have a replacement handset, base is cs6729-2 handset is cs6729-3 how do i set up new handset to see base?


This sounds like a registration problem, the new
handset must be de-registered from its original
base and then registered to your base.

NOTE: the CS6729 handles a maximum of 5
handsets. If you have a handset displaying
"Handset #5" then you have a 'fully populated system'
even if you actually have only one or two handsets.

You will need to clear each handset ( I ) then clear
the base of all registrations ( II ) before re-registering
each handset ( III ) up to the maximum of five.
=====================================
( I ). First, to de-register a handset ---

0. Start by taking off the battery compartment cover.

1. press [menu]
2. scroll up/down to "Settings"
3. enter * 7 8 9 0 #
4. scroll down to "next page", press [select]
5. scroll down to "Register Clear?", press [select]
6. display asks "Confirm?" or "Register Clear??",
press [select]
7. display reads "Ok" and chirps, press [ off ]

8. UNPLUG THE HANDSET BATTERY
(this is why the cover was off)

9. Wait ~30 seconds, re-connect the battery &
replace the cover

10. display reads "Not Registered"
===============================

( II.) To clear the base of all handset registrations
( if needed, else skip ahead to ( III ). )

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold
past ~4 sec when the "In Use" lamp lights, at
about 10 secs the "In Use" lamp will begin to
blink. 2. release the [Find Handset] button momentarily,
then briefly press it again. After a moment,
all handsets that were registered to the base
(if any) will display "Not Registered" and be
ready for fresh registration ===============================

( III.) To register each handset to the base:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold for
~4 sec until the "In Use" lamp lights.
2. press # on the handset and set the handset into
the handset cradle on the base
3. within 30 seconds or so, the handset will either
chirp and display "Handset Registered", then
"Handset #x" or it will say "Registration Failed".

NOTE: the battery must be well charged prior to the
registration process, a weak battery may cause a
"Registration Failed". Charge the battery for a
few hours and try the registration ( III ) again.

===============================
Good luck !!

How do I register my vtech phone?


"Register" refers to the pairing of the handset to
the base so they can communicate securely
in private via an encryption scheme so no one
can easily evesdrop.

When you first set the phone up for use, you will
need to effect the registration then:

( III.) To register each handset to the base:

1. press [Find Handset] on the base and hold for
~4 sec until the "In Use" lamp lights.
2. press # on the handset and set the handset into
the handset cradle on the base
3. within 30 seconds or so, the handset will either
chirp and display "Handset Registered", then
"Handset #x" or it will say "Registration Failed".

NOTE: the battery must be well charged prior to the
registration process, a weak battery may cause a
"Registration Failed". Charge the battery for a
few hours and try the registration ( III ) again.

===============================
Good luck !!

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!

My brand new phone is not getting fully charged. I have put it on charge for even more than 8 hours. The charge bar is still showing very low sign. Additionally it is not getting registered despite...


The set could have been on shelf for a long period and so it is possible that the battery has developed back emf which makes it difficult to charge to the full level.
Also sometimes the set fails to lock on due to the same reason and also if the threshold of voltage does not come up.
Discharge the battery after it has charged a bit and charge again.Allow the battery to be put for charging for over 24 hours. If there is no registering then you must try and see if the warranty on the new phone is applicable as the base and handset could be out of sync..

It will not ring and the base will not register


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow these steps to resolve the issue:

Connect the charger and then plug the power supply unit into the wall socket.
Now insert the two batteries supplied
To register your handset to a base station, place it in the main base station with the display facing upward. After approx. one minute, the handset's internal number is Displayed (e.g. 2). Successful registration is signaled by a confirmation tone. Replace the newly registered handset into the charger and leave to charge for Approximately 16 hours. The charging status icon flashes on the handset to indicate that the batteries are being charged.

To register it manually:

Press the MENU options button.
Press the DOWN button until the display shows REGISTER HS.
Press the OK button. Display shows PIN.
Enter your 4-digit Pin (original setting 0000).
Press the OK button. Display flashes REGISTER HS.
Following the user guide for the base station you are registering to place the base into registration mode.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Handset won't registger


called the customer service line a few mins ago. Here are the steps the guy told me to do:

1. Unplug the AC adapter
2. Unplug the phone jack
3. Take the battery out of the phone
4. Wait 15 minutes
5. Put everything back together in reverse order (battery, phone jack, adapter) and it should work as directed. If you have the additional phones like we do and those don't register right away, just take the battery pack out and put it back in.

Registering phones


I have after many hours found the solution. (Well one that worked for me). I have a Uniden Elite 8855 + 8805 additional handsets. What you have to do is:
1. Go to your base unit.
2. Put your flip phone in the cradle.
3. Press down and hold down (AT ALL TIMES) the end (find hs) button.
4. Whilst holding down this button, take the power plug out of the wall.
5. Whilst still holding down the end (find hs) button, plug the power back in.
6. When you hear a beep from the base unit system.
7. Let go of the end (find hs) button.
8. Your phone memory should be cleared now and you are ready to repeat the process of registering your base and additional handsets.

PLEASE REGISTER!!!!!!!!!!


You may need to "reset" the whole system1.gif. Do this by :
1 Unplug phone line, power to charger base, and remove the batteries.
2 Wait a couple of minutes.
3 Plug in batteries first, then phone line, and finally the power cord.

Then try to set the phones in the basecharger to register.

Expandable handsets lose activation:


USer manual requires,
full charge 16 hours for expandable handsets, then place in cradle ~20 seconds until 'ready' is displayed on the screen.
If power is lost the handset may have to be re-registered.

if the units are not fully charged when you register them the registration may be lost, can only suggest reversing the order, by fully charging the device then registering to see if the registration holds
