Question about Uniden DCT646-3 Cordless Phone

Mic not working.

All of my Uniden phones are working well except for #3 which sounds fine but no one can hear what I am saying either with the intercom feature, incoming calls or outgoing calls. Please help.

Re: Mic not working.

It worked well for me too! Thanks!! I was told I had to buy a new phone because the microphone went back. Took the receiver apart (4 screws in back of handset and 2 that held the board in place), cleaned mic with alcohol and a q-tip, and removed the rubber piece that kept the mic clean (inside of the housing), and presto, it worked just fine. The ribbon cable came loose upon opening up inside of phone, but I stuck it back inside the top of base and I was ready to go.

Re: Mic not working.

Thank you all. I had the same problem, i took apart the handset, and used some Old Spice After Shave (did not have alcohol or spirit) on the mic to clean it up. I also got rid of that black cover over it. The cleaning fixed mine up.

I had that problem, i took apart the handset, and used alcohol on the mic to clean it up. I also got rid of that black cover over it. I think the glue got all up in it and is stopping the mic from working. The cleaning fixed mine up.

since the other person can hear you well, i dint think there is a problem with the battery.. there might be a problem with the network, or the handset.. its good that u check it out withthe manufacturer, if it has a customer cover.. good luck!!

Calling party cannot here receiving party

This can be one of a couple of things. First of all, if this is a multi-handset phone, go off hook on two handsets at the same time and see if you can hear yourself in both phones (Speak into one while listening to the other) If it is only a single handset phone, do the same thing only with another phone. If you cannot hear anything coming from the uniden phone, it may have a bad mic in the handset and would need to be replaced. (the handset not the mic) If you bought it less then a year ago and still have the receipt, call uniden at 18002971023 and they will help you get it replaced.

My mic doesn't work; callers can't hear me

I don't have the answer but have the same problem. Uniden tech support had me disconnect power, etc. to no avail. Next solution was "replace the unit". I'm looking for a two-line phone with no answering device - use voice mail. Any ideas?

Phone works fine except the person on the other end can not hear your voice. Phone is a Uniden DCT 646 series cordless phone with one addional handset. The additional set is working fine.

There is an inexpensive built in mic where you speak into the handset. Ifit is not clogged with any debris, the mic needs to be removed with a soldering iron and replaced with a like one from Radio Shack.
