Uniden wxi477 out of range fix

This problem arises when the handset does not communicate with the base.
These are the steps:
1: Deregistering the handset
2: Registering the handset to base

Deregestering clears the stored (incorrect) base information on the handset.
Reregestering allows the base to assign a new ID for the handset.

Deregistering- press and hold the OFF (red button) and the # button on the handset for 5 seconds. select base unavailable and press OK. Are you sure appears. select yes and press OK. you will hear a confirmation tone. The handset will delete its own base information without trying to contact the base. It will now display MODELS VARY PLACE HANDSET ON THE BASE FOR REGISTRATION.

Registering the handset with the base- Make sure the tel. line and power is plugged into the base.
Press an hold the register button under the base (located between the tel. line and yellow power socket under the base) for 5 seconds until the red light flashes. At the same time press and hold the # button on the handset for 5 secs. You will hear a tone and It will now display REGISTRATION COMPLETE.

If it says registration failed: Retry the registration steps. Make sure the handset have enough battery power. If not charge for 15-20 hrs.
Check your connections on the base and make it is getting power.

The Steps above was my fix for the uniden wxi477 out of range problem.

Good luck.

Clear the Handset's Base Data
  1. To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the 'end' button and the '#' button simultaneously until the phone beeps.
  2. It will now be de-registered from the base.
Note: This requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.


Clear the Base Handset Data

  4. The charge light will now flash.
  5. Sit any handset in the cradle.

Call the phone provider you are using, (verizon, att, etc.) they can help you to reset the password.

Hello Lynn:

Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the telephone base. Plug the telephone base into a different working electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch. Move the handset closer to the telephone base. It may be out of range. Reset the telephone base by unplugging the electrical power to the base. Wait for 15 seconds and plug it back in again. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and the telephone base to synchronize. Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT phones can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.

I had the same problem. Something makes the phone's memory get "stuck."  Take the battery out of the phone for a minute and then put it back. Then unplug the phone and plug in again. You need to do this with all extensions. The problem goes away.

a non computer problem'
it is a CCTV system old and very cheap and poor grade.

Do not disturb or silent mode may have been enabled. Without the model number of your phone, I might miss one of the ways to re-enable ringing for your model. Make sure that the phone is in standby mode. Next, check if there is a DND button on the base for the cordless phone system. If the LED for the button is lit, press that button. You may need to hold the button; enabling Do Not Disturb requires a press and hold.

To disable silent mode, press and hold Silent on either the handset or the base. On the handsets, this may be the # key (below the 9). When you enable Silent Mode, you can get a prompt for how long you want the phone to be quiet. If you do not press any number key (other than 0), the Silent Mode will last until you disable it manually. You can then confirm the Silent Mode or it will be enabled after 5 seconds.

I hope this helps. In both modes, the answering system will automatically be turned on if it wasn't on before enabling the mode.
