How To Pair Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone with Amplicomms PowerTel 2701 Handset

2 Comments4 November 2021  |  Eugene

To pair your Amplicomms PowerTel 2880 Amplified Telephone with an Amplicomms PowerTel 2701 Cordless Handset, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Power-on the base of the main unit, as well as the base of the 2701 handset (DON'T place the 2701 handset in the cradle yet. This should be done in Step 6).
  2. Set the date and time on the base of the main 2880 unit.
  3. On the main 2880 unit, press the last button in the top row of keys (denoted by three dashes as seen below).

    Pairing the Powertel 2880 with a 2701
  4. Using the arrow keys in the centre of the top row of keys, scroll until you get to "Settings".
  5. Enter "Settings" and select "Registration". The base will now be in Registration Mode.
  6. Place the 2701 handset in the cradle base (as mentioned in Step 1).
  7. Wait 8 - 10 seconds, and the 2701 handset will register that it is fully paired with a beep.
  8. Repeat for each additional 2701 handset you'd like to pair.

Hello. I have purchased a PowerTel 2701 and I am trying to register it to my PowerTel 2880 Combo, but I am not having any success, the main base keeps saying 'Registration failed' Please advise. Kind regards.

Also, the handset says it is a 2700 rather than 2701, could this be the problem?
