Question about Phones

Open Question

Have Uniden DECT 180-3 cordless phone (3 handsets,1 base). In the last two weeks, 1) calls get cut off, 2) there is an echo sound within the handhelds, 3) the base display will start making a electronic sound and the number "88" will flash on the screen, 4) when the handset is placed in the base cradle, the handset display shows "searching". The unit itself is approx. two years old. The batteries appear to be charged or when weak, charging. Our service provider is Sasktel Communications in Saskatchewan, Canada. HELP and Thanks

This sounds like the register-deregister problem elsewhere on this page. Try holding down the "end" and "#" buttons for about 6 seconds to deregister the phones and then reregister them. I had this problem too and it worked for me.

SOURCE: handset has No link to base

I was having the same problem with the same model phone, and fixed the problem by rebooting the phone – unplugging the AC and phone cord from the base station and plugging both back it, then removing and replacing the handset to regenerate the security code.

Hi, I have a dect 2035 and began having the same problem. I don't know how the feedback came about but it was suddenly there today when I tried using the phone. After mucking around with one of the handsets I hit the speakerphone button and turned the volume all the way down, it only goes down to a preset minimum, I then turned speakerphone off again and turned the volume for regular handset mode all the way down too. The phone works beautifully again!

SOURCE: GE Model 27911 DECT 6.0 Additional Cordless Handset not working

I had the same problem. What worked for me, after several unsuccessful registration attempts, was to disconnect the phone handset battery for about 1 min and then reconnect the battery. Run the handset registration procedure again. It registered for me on the first attempt after the battery reinstall. Good luck.

HandsetS #2 and #3 work properly. Handset #1 has a display screen with correct datet and time -- but no dial tone, How can I fix this?


This sounds like Handset #1 has lost its "registration" with
the base. De-registering & re-registering is often easy.

First, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a
weak battery will interfere with the registration process.
Then try this ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, & similar):

To deregister the handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

Next, to re-register the handset:

2. Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
within ~30 seconds the handset should display
a "Handset #" and be good to go.

Good luck!

I have lost my manual and i dont know how to record a personal message on my answering machine and how to enter the code to retrieve my messages from another phone.


From your handset, you just have to press the mute button, your phone should start telling you the time, date, ect. press the #5 key and then the #8 key and start recording your message. When finished press the # 8 key again. Hope this helps

Searching and out of range message keep appearing. Can't dial out or receive calls Uniden Dect 6.0 (both phones) Tried to register base but unsuccessful.


Hi,

This is because of the following reasons

1.The handset is far away from the base unit.Try to bring the hand set near the base unit and try.
2.The base unit is not plugged in to the power supply.Please check it.

Thanx

I have the DECT1580 cordless phone with 4 handsets. Lately, people cannot hear me when I call them. Sometimes it cuts in and out. It's happening with more than one of the handsets. Help.


Weak or Hard to Hear Audio (From the Uniden Manual)
If the caller’s voice sounds weak or soft, the signal might be blocked by large metal objects or walls; you might also
be too far from the base, or the handset’s battery may be weak.
  1. Try adjusting the volume of the earpiece (see page 36) or the audio tone
  2. Try moving around while you’re on a call or moving closer to the base to see if the sound gets louder.
  3. Make sure the handset’s battery is fully charged.

Echo on my end when someone calls! Please help! Thanks!


it may be due to interference from electronics devices around you since its a cordless phone ,or your phone is not getting a complete connection, could be one cause,Please try these solutions when you experience echo sound :

- turn the volume down

- turn the "clarity booster" function on the phone

Follow these steps to turn on clarity booster

1) Press menu/del during talk time (while phone is in use).

2) Press ^/vol or vol/v to move the pointer to Clarity Boost, and then select Boost On and "B" appears on the display. To turn Off the Clarity Booster, repeat above step again. check the owners manual for a full description for your model of phone
*Please note: clarity booster turns off automatically at the end of each call.

- make sure the Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) has been set properly

*The phone should have Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) built in.

*This means the circuit will study the Voice Level & reduce/cut the echo automatically.

Follow these steps to set the ECC properly

1. Unplug the battery from the handset for a few seconds.

2. Re-plug the battery back into the handset.

3. Make a phone call & at the initial stage speak loudly into the mic. Please note: The ECC will learn at the initial stage only, so after these steps are followed, the ECC will start working properly.or
just a simple pwr cycle ( turning the phone off) can give you a fresh registratoin, this can improve the quality of the call. hope this helps pls do let me know

ADDING HANDSET SAYS OUT OF RANGE


A search of Uniden support only said to call 1-800-297-1023 with handset registration issues. The rep picked up quickly and walked me through the reset procedure. Here it is step-by-step:

1. Remove battery
2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it's workable)
3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.
4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok
5. Remove battery (yes again)
6. Reinsert battery (this time there's no need to hold down any buttons)
7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)
8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal
