Question about VTech Communications CS6409 - cordless extension handset w/ call waiti

1 Answer

Unable to Call, Try Again

I have a VTech CS 6419 base station with 2 wireless (CS 6409) extensions in my home. When 2 handsets are being used during a call, there is no problem. But if a third handset attempts to pickup, the third handset displays "Unable to Call, Try Again." So I try again and it says the same thing every time. If I hang one of the two original handsets up, and attempt to pickup the third handset, it works perfectly, but then if I try to pickup the original handset I hung up in order to add a third phone, it then says "Unable to Call, Try Again." Is there a limit to 2 active handsets at a time? I have not been able to find any problems like this on the internet and the instruction book says nothing about whether there is a maximum number of handsets that can be active at a particular time during a call.

The phone line is supplying a certain amount of power. If you open many parallel channels the power is distributed among active phones. The more sets there are the less power each one gets.These are the physical principles behind the limitations on the number of ringers a single line can activate (Ringer Equivalence Number)
As to the need to be using 3 or more sets on the same line and at the same time, I have a hard time understanding that.
For a landline, your phone company can activate 2 numbers, as it can enable A/DSL on your phone line.

Bought a used vtech 5.8 phone, charged the battery and now see message "not registered. I can not make calls... how do I register it?


I believe it is telling you it is not registered with the Base Unit. You did get the Base Unit with it didn't you, otherwise you have a paperweight.

If you do have a set then this is the answer

Tip 1 of 1
Step 1: Place the handset in the base or charger. If PRESS FIND HS 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and recradle it in the base or charger.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for approximately four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while, the handset will emit a series of tones, and the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.

There's nothing in the manual for the very simple reason that the CS6419 isn't a voicemail system. To setup your voicemail system, please refer to the documentation for that system.

My vtech dect 6.0 keeps saying unable to call try again


I had this happen suddenly on 2 out of 3 handsets with a DS6151 base and DS6101 handsets. Well, what happened is there was no dial tone on either of the 2 handsets on either of the 2 lines and a message appeared on the display "Unable to Call Try Again" after some delay, if Line1 or Line2 button was pressed.

Oddly, the 2 that did not work were the ones normally on "extension" chargers and the 1 that did work was the one on the base unit. That caused me to suspect the base unit .. which it still may have been but the solution was NOT. And, also odd, the handsets seemed to still be synched with the base unit in many respects.

Cycling the power on the base unit did nothing.
These are fairly new units and battery life is generally much longer in my experience.

The Solution:
- Remove the battery from the handset that doesn't work properly.
- Re-install the same battery.
Whatever was wrong, this reset it and the handsets started working again.
Easy fix.

Can not rec a dial tone, phone states no link to base move closer



If “No link to base. Move closer to base, try again.” is displayed
even when using the handset near the base unit, the handset may have lost communication with the base unit. You need to re-register the handset to the base unit.
• Make sure the base unit is not being used.
• Have both handsets and base unit nearby during registration.
• Follow steps 1–3 listed below. You have about 1 minute to complete them.
• Confirm the extension number of the handset which has lost the communication by placing the handset on the base unit or charger.
If you re-register the handset using the other handset’s extension number, the other handset will not function.
• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

1 Base unit: Press and hold [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] until a beep sounds.
• The CHARGE indicator flashes.

2 Base unit: Press the extension number [1] (handset symbol 1 ) or [2] (handset symbol 2) of the
handset which has lost the communication.

3 Handset: Press and hold [FLASH/CALL WAIT] until “Handset Registering” is displayed.
• When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset and the display shows the number.
• Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete while the handset establishes communication with the base unit.


• If the handset beeps 3 times and “Error!!” is displayed, an error occurred. Try again from step 1.
• You can stop registration by pressing [OFF] on the handset, and pressing [LOCATOR/INTERCOM] on the base unit.

I have a Vtech 2431 base station with 4 phones, one at the base station and 3 remotes, I need to replace one of the phones but I do not know how to reset the base station to remove all the phones...


This worked for me after lots of digging....If you have already tryed reregistering your handsets and can only get two-or three to work try this and deregister them and re-register. If your base model number is vt2431: Take the handset out of the base, press **335782 on the dial pad of the base. (do not have the line active or anything , just put the (2) stars and 335782 in (no spaces) on the base unit. This will de-register all of the handsets at one time. Then all you have to do is re-register handsets...

Problems with C110 & A110 Vtech Mirage Dect Home phones


Have strangely got the same problem - about the same time you posted this, but intermitently. I have isolated that the problem is in fact the handset itself, not the base unit. I eliminated a problem with the base unit by a) registering a different DECT phone to it. - The base still works fine. b) Leaving the handset switched off for an hour or so (press and hold the "OK" botton to switch off / on); then whislt it was working, registering the handset to a different base (Base 2). And guess what, after 30 mins the "BASE 2" message started flashing on the faulty handset.
So, if you already have an A110 extension handset, make sure it's also registered to base 1 and maybe try to get just the handset repaired via VTECH. (or just buy a new handset if they are available).

Vtech M6896 phones do not work


Step 1: Press and hold FIND HANDSET on the main telephone base for 10 seconds.

Step 2: When the IN USE light starts to flash, release the FIND HANDSET button.

Step 3: Press and release FIND HANDSET again. The IN USE light will turn off and in a few seconds, all handsets will be de-registered.

Step 4: All handsets will show NOT REGISTERED.

To register a handset (register 1 handset at a time):
Step 1: Place the handset in the base unit or a charger that is connected to a power outlet. If PRESS FIND HNDST 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and place in base or charger again.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while the handset will emit a series of tones, the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset (1-4) when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.
