If it shows it's charging and doesn't actually charge, then the battery is no longer good. It's probably a NiCd battery and they only last a few of years depending on the charge/discharge cycles. Hop down to Wal-Mart for a new battery, or Radio Shack if it's a hard to find one.

Blank display screen


I got my display to come on while on the base unit, by making charging contacts connect. When I did this, then battery indicated it was low, then though I had taken it out a working phone. Maybe the fact is one of charging units are not charging correctly if have several. I have a 3 system unit and it is the base that seems to have the problem.

Uniden phone searching


the battery should charge from the hand piece cradle where you place the hand set when finished with a call. Make sure you put the hand piece in the cradle correctly and make sure the light on the cradle comes on to show it is charging

Phones are powered but do not connect to base so can't receive or make calls. Is there a way to reset?


The manual, which can be found at: http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25952EE1_IB.pdf, reads:
4. Place the handset in the base cradle. The charge/in use indicator turns on,
verifying the battery is charging. The unit will take 20 seconds to register
and verify its security code. READY shows in the display.
NOTE: In case of a power failure, the handsets may display
UNAVAILABLE when the TALK/CALL BACK button is pressed.
You must then place all handsets on the main base cradle
for 20 seconds to re-register.
That should reset your handsets. Hope this helps :) Thank you very much.

Phone not working


Searching means the phone can't find the base.

Make sure you registered each phone on the base.

If you have done this already, and are sure that the baseunit cradle has power, I'd return them as they are probably defective.

If all else fails, read the instructions.

"4. Place the handset in the base cradle. The charge/in use indicator turns on, verifying the battery is charging. The unit will take 20 seconds to register and verify its security code. READY shows in the handset’s display."
