Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

2 Answers

The phone is constantly searching for network

The phone line is fine, as the fax phone works fine, but the 3 cordless handsets all say "searching" and have for the entire day. I made sure everything is connected.

Re: The phone is constantly searching for network

It seem that the base is either bad or there is no power supplied to the base from the power adapter. Check and see if the charging light is coming on if it is then you have to replace the base unit and re register the handsets to it. If it is not then most likely the power adaptor is bad. It is difficult to check the adaptor with out a meter but if you know of a way you can try it. If the adaptor is good and there is no charging light on the base then the base definitely is bad. Good luck

Quit buying cheap Chinese junk where the only word that exists in there vocabulary is profit. Words like quality and customer satisfaction are non-existence

I just want to make sure that I am shopping for the right product. We have a dental office with 1 phone#, but we have a rollover line. Our fax has it's own# which "was" what we called line 3 but as of...

Yes, you can use a regular 2 line cordless phone with your 4 line corded systems. The only concern is when you put someone on hold. The on hold function may not release if you have different makes of phone. If you already have Panasonic get a Panasonic 2 line cordless phone with the on hold feature.

Yes, you can just take line 3 and plug it into your new fax. I might suggest looking into a fax to email service instead of buying a new fax. If you receive more than send it's a great way to save on the phone line and paper.

Digital phones are pretty secure, no one will accidentally hear your conversations. It is not encrypted but I think it would be perfectly fine in your office.

Phone says searching

The battery may be weak. Or it is too far from the base. Try exchanging the two. take the handset near the base and see if it will link.

GE dect 6.0 cordless phone bought at walmart

We had the same problem.

"Our phones worked fine for two weeks but now you can not dial out
and when someone calls us they can't hear we say. The line still works
fine with our old phone1.gif."

To fix the problem, I simply unplugged the base AC plug from the outlet, waited about 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. Both handsets said searching on the display and then handset names returned to the display as originally programmed. The phones returned to operation as normal.

You can connect up to 4 cordless sets (Operating manuals, page 21, states 3 but they really mean 3 in addition to the one packed with the base, for a total of 4). I've head four connected for over 5 years now and they work fine. In your case, try disconnecting the battery of the cordless for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect. You may also want to disconnect the power cable from the base unit for a half minute or so. I found this method to be equivalent to a cold boot, and quite effective in getting all phones to work again after a storm or power outage.
