Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the phone system.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's a Uniden DECT 3236. We have one phone with base answering system and cordless handset plus 2nd upstairs phone which is faulty and 3rd phone in downstairs office which works.
Expert:  Louie replied 2 months ago.

Please try performing a RESET of the erring handset (2nd upstairs phone which is faulty). Click HERE.

Thereafter, proceed to register by placing this handset on the base unit to charge.

The problem is not fixed. Please refund our $5.00.
