Question about Motorola Phones

1 Answer

The screen on the cordless handset of my Motorola MD791 has gone blank/dead. I bought the set 8 months ago, and I keep the cordless phone in the charging cradle. Do I simply need a new battery, or is the phone no longer usable?

Handset won't charge


Hi,

Not using the handset for several months  would have allowed corrosion to develop on the charging contacts.  You have to use cotton buds and a strong solvent to clean the charging contacts.

Alternately, it may be that the battery is already dead and no longer would accept a charge.  These are plug-in types and are replaceable.  Incidentally, it is also possible that the corrosion developed on the battery connector contacts themselves.

Indication of corrosion would be dull colored contacts with bits of flakes - clean to make shiny again; the connector corrosion would be wet powdery greenish substance on the wires or connector from the battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Uniden base flashing 88 8


I just got off of the phone with Uniden for the same issue with my D1680-4. The alternating "8" - "88" code is an indication that the base is dead. They will be sending me a new base (and 2 handsets). During the call I learned that if you do not have a receipt, Uniden warrants their phones for up to 15 months. The advertised 12 months, plus 3 months for the product to get from manufacturing, through distribution channel and finally sale to the consumer.

Good morning! I just a bout 5 month ago this phone with its 5 handsets. In the last month 2 of the handsets dead, they are not operating ant are not charging. What I have to do. Thank


If they are not charging the batteries they will need to be replaced, but just to be sure! take a good working battery and switch out for the bad one and if the phone charges, the batteries are no good and proves the phone is good. Now! since your phones are a few months old you may still have warranty, I would encourage you to go back where they were bought to remedy the problem.

I have a Motorola L404 cordless phone. i bought an additional handset. I cannot get it to register with the base unit. It just keeps saying "registration failed"


On the Motorola L404 series, to deregister all handsets you unplug both the phone and power to the base station. Press and hold the 'find' button while plugging the power back in. The display will show "CL". Continue to hold the find button till the display shows '00' and all the handsets will show 'unregisterd'. You then proceed by registering all your handsets again in the order you want them listed.

The screen became blank


I would say the LCD is dead. They seem prone to that because we have had to replace two handsets with exactly the same problem. The one lost the top row of the screen, the second is completely screendead. Though all is not lost. Any GAP compatible cordless handset will work with that base, so you can replace them and not have to buy an entire system :) Ebay is a good source for handsets only.

My handset won't charge


Try charging it in a different cradle if you have more than one handset.  This has happened to me where a particular base will not charge a particular phone.  Once charged elsewhere the problem resolved.
