Handset gets warm on charging stand

Batteries in handset get warm while sitting in charging stand with full charge. Returned first phone and second phone does the same thing. Other V-tech models used do not do this, but others don't use individual batteries.

Re: Handset gets warm on charging stand

The handset and the AC adapter can become warm. This is normal operation on this unit. If it is too hot to touch, your unit is need of repair.

Batteries won't charge


There are a few reasons why a battery won't charge. Make sure that the contacts on the phone and the charging cradle are clean. (Unplug the base or charger.) A pencil eraser is good initial cleaner; electronic contact cleaner sprays are a second option. Remove the battery and check the contacts inside the handset and the battery as well. Next replace the battery pack. If you add a comment with your phone's model number, then I can try to find the correct battery. (Stores like Battery Mart may have a compatible battery.)

The final possible problem is that the charging system is bad. If your phone has multiple handsets, try a different charger. If the phone allows you to add handsets, try getting a new handset. The new handset will come with a new charger. (I've never seen the chargers sold without the handset but you could try Uniden customer service. If the base station is the only handset cradle, you'll probably need to replace the phone if a new battery and clean contacts don't work.

If your Uniden phone is under warranty, contact the company.

I hope this helps.

Shirley, check if you inserted the chip properly. Usually the bars are your wifi strength. Most likely its the chip.

I have put new batteries in my diverse 4016 phone on the base but it will not charge.can you please sugest what the problem maybe' thanking vou ...


It looks that the handset is not charging from the base unit: if you have a multimeter you can check that you have a voltage slightly higher than your battery pack voltage on the base unit. Make sure the contacts are clean and If you have no reading, then the charger on the base unit is very likely defective.
If you do not have a multimeter, check and clean the (two) contacts on your handset and base unit to ensure proper electrical contact and that you see the charging indicator displayed on both the base and the handset.
If that does not work, to assess if the issue is with the handset, swap the phones from the base and the stand-alone charging station and repeat the test: if it works, swap the batteries between the handset to see if it makes any difference. If it works, then the issue might be with the original base unit handset as you have now 'tested' the new battery on the alternative handset. To summarize, it is a test by trial and error swapping.
Hope the information is of assistance.

New out of the box wont power on


Hi.. Let me try to help you if I can... I'd like you to check a few things,

1) Open battery cover on handset & make sure that the battery pack is installed correctly, and not upside down. Also make sure the little wires that come from battery pack are plugged into the tiny jacks of the phone (usualy red & black wires) in handset is fully attached & pushed snuggly into the handset... and if No wires, check to ensure the part that does connect the battery to handset is not covered with a plastic film of tape or paper as right from a manufacturer they sometimes do that to preserve length of battery until product is sold to you..

2) Check the bottom of the handset phone, that sit in the cradle of the electric part of the recharger, and make sure there is nothing like plastic or paper covering the connections between the bottom of the handset and the charger. Make sure there is a full on connection for a full charge to the handset. As with some cordelss phones Ive had the red LED light will not come on if there is something blocking a full connection for a charge.. The red LED light on base, only comes on when the electricity is flowing into the handset. The slightest tilt not allowing handset a full charge, wont give it a FULL charge.

3) You say " NEW. Out Of The Box" I hope when you connected the battery pack into the handset, and made sure it was connected right, you then allowed handset to charge at least a FULL 12 -24 hours before trying to use your new cordless phone. as the batteries right out of the box, are rarely already fully charged when any cordless phone is bought and then it does need 12 - 24 hours for a FIRST FULL CHARGE...

If you can check all 3 of these questions, and let me know how things are back on this posting, if you stilll can not solve the problem after a full charge to battery, I may have some other ideas that can help.

Good Luck

Handset has message Out of Range even though it is fully charged on on the handset.


The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone:
1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.

Handset


Presume you are talking about the extra handset. Try placing the extra handset in the "main" base for 5 seconds.

If the second handset works ok on the base and the first handset doesn't, then you are right...the fault lies with the first handset. There are batteries ( special type ) in the handset, it sound as if either the batteries are dead, or not charged ( try charging them for 12 hours on the good base station ) or the connection is bad.

Not Registered


I had the same problem and this procedure fixes it! First, unplug the power to the main base (answering machine) for 20 seconds. Plus it back in. Put the phone that says "not registered" in the main answering machine. It will say "press the find handset for 4 seconds". Do that. It will run thru a series of stuff and will find the handset. It works! Rich (jambones.com)
