Question about Uniden TRU8885-2 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Uniden TRU8885-2 Restarts every time an incoming phone call, start showing the Welcome message ....

I have the Uniden TRU8885-2 Phones system with no problems for over a year and a half now (great phones) ... a few days ago i start notice every time i receive a phone call the phone will ring for two short rings then the phone will restarts or reboot. Its starts showing the "Welcome ... Please wait message" on the display screen, meaning that its powering up for the first time and as soon as the phone is ready, i get two short rings then it restarts again. When the phone is not receiving any phone call, i get the a dial tone on the base and the hand set with no problem. I have tried to reset the base by holding down the delete message button while plugging in the power, wait for 6 seconds until i hear the long beep. I have de-register the hands sets and then re-register them (hold the end and # keys together for 6 seconds). I have unpluged the phone, let it sit there overnight and still the same problem. I am also getting a hard time contacting Uniden support. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    I just started having the exact same problem after owning the unit for about 3 years. It's not a battery issue with the remote handsets because I can call my phone with my cell phone and watch the base station reset. Did you get a solution to your problem yet? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Phone batteries are NI -Mh and they have memory.The batteries have life of 500to 1000 cycles.If batteries are not fully discharge then it does not retain charge and life. i have sen 100's of phone in flee market which are sold. After good battry replacement they work.Since most of batteries are made in china and expensive or not availale ,poeple discard the phones.In USA also mail order replacement battery price are expensive compare to phone, one should consider cost of replacement or try with other battries keeping polarity in mind.

YOUR batteries are bad and not giving full current to phone.Clean charging contact and see battery gets full charge. IFthe battery indicator will show full charge due to voltage but once if you remove battery and put it again indicator will be minimum. then replace batttery.

The answering system status shows the lette ' A' but not nunbers

With many Uniden cordless systems the letter "A" indicates that the machine is in announce mode, which plays an outgoing message but does not record any incoming messages. If you want the machine to record incoming messages then you need to switch to the answer mode.

Since you didn't specify the model of your Uniden cordless system I can't tell you how to switch modes. I can suggest you select the model of your system from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

"i have a uniden 6 0 dect2080 3 answering machine how to check the messages from a different phone"

The default security code is "80". If you have not reset that code, you will use 80.
This is all from the manual:
1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about ten rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting or the beeps (if answering system is off), press 0 (zero) and enter your security code within 2 seconds.
3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero" followed by a beep.
Then the manual lists all the remote commands. If you need those, you can go to and download a manual.

Incoming calls time and dates are not accurate

You have to program the corect date and time (make sure the AM/PM is correct) on the base unit. Then they should work fine. Good Luck

Uniden 5.8Ghz phone.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.
