Yes even if the Battery-low indicator does not light. There may not be enough current left in the battery. it may depend on how much talk time is expended after each full charge. For a phone of this vintage I would get a new battery or upgrade to a 5.8 GHZ phone. Check first to see if the charging light comes on steady when the handset is on the base and no tarnish or debris is on the battery charging terminals on both the handset and the base unit. Clean them with a soft cloth to make sure.

Why five rapid beeps and screen saying "charge battery"? I had turned on and was charging, and 1 day later phone off and charge gone.


The batteries are defective, your local supermarket should have rechargeable batteries or try an online auction site, look for the highest 'mah rating you can get something like 2800mah, the higher the rating generally the longer the battery will hold charge

Uniden powermax


I've caused my Uniden phones to begin working properly by REBOOTING them... I take the batteries out of each and every phone.... so they are ALL dead at the same time... AND, I unhook the electrical power to the base. I leave everything unhooked and unpowered for a minute or so... then put everything back together.. You might give it a try. It's done wonders for me...

I've got an AT&T model 982 corded phone. Whenever I pick up the receiver or punch the speaker phone to receive or dial out, the phone beeps loudly four or five times. How do I shut that off?


That beeping is letting you know know that the batteries are low or out. There's a compartment under the phone that holds four AA batteries. Open it and replace the batteries or put in fresh ones. The beeping will stop.

Find HS doesn't work


Had sets will not beep if the battery is too low or drained of its charge. The power for the beep needs to come from a good battery charge, so if you are missing a hand set and its been out of the charge cradle for a long time, or the unit is more than 4 years old and the batteries wont charge anymore, then you can't use the find handset feature and probably can't use it to talk as well.
If you know that the batteries are good, then there are 2 other possibilities: the seek signal needs to be reset by unplugging power to the base unit for one minute and allowing the circuits to reset themselves, or the seek button is not making good contact inside and this would require someone with knowledge to open the base unit and clean or repair the button contacts. Finally, many hans sets have an on/off/standby feature. If the handset is in off position, the it isthe same as if you removed the battery and it will never beep; it must be on standby.

I had the same problem. To fix it, I unplugged the base from the wall, and the battery from the handset, left it all unplugged for 30 seconds, and then replugged everything back in. It works fine now.

I bought a GE 24 GHz desk phone (27936GE-A) with a removable handset (27936GE3-M), serial #20056798. Speaker phone works fine, handset just beeps 3 times, but doesn't work. Any tips?


If the battery is fully charged, You probably just need to register the handset Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} to the base by following the instructions in the user's manual.

Here is the fix for that problem...

1st click the set button on the bottom left of the keypad. Press the "up" button (located to the right of the the keypad) until you get to option number 7 IPP. Click the set button again (so you can change the settings for that option) and press the down button to turn off the option. Click the set button one more time and finally press the delete button to get out of your settings mode. No More beep, beep, beep......

Hope This Helped--WICC-
