el 42408 handset

How do you deregister a EL42408 model?  I have that current model and bought a used handset via E-BAY. I need to deregister it and need to sync it up with my base.

Hello @glads1234.

We appreciate you reaching out to us on the Community Forums. I would be more than happy to help you today.

 

If you still have access to the old base you can de-register the handset by following a simple process. You will have to de-register all handsets registered to that base.

 

  1. Make sure that all handsets are out of the telephone, base and chargers before you begin deregistration.
  2. Press and hold /HANDSET LOCATOR on the telephone base for about 10 seconds (until the IN USE light starts to flash), then release the /HANDSET LOCATOR button.
  3. Immediately press /HANDSET LOCATOR while the, IN USE light is still flashing. (The light flashes for about seven seconds. If the light stops flashing, start again with Step 1.)
  4. It takes up to 10 seconds to complete the deregistration process. Wait for the cordless handset screen to display To register, see manual before registering the handset again.
  5. To register the handset(s) to the telephone base again, follow the registration instructions on the previous page.


I hope this information helps you, and if there is anything else please do get back to us. We'll be more than happy to assist you.

You don't worry about where it takes you, you follow the steps listed.  One of these methods work for the vast majority who've tried them so if none of them work I have no further answers. The information posted by @ATTHelp is only for handsets that are already registered to the original base.
