Question about AT&T E5908 Phone

3 Answers

Cordless phone does not connect

I have a corded phone that also has a cordless base and phone as part of the phone package. The corded phone and answering machine work great. The cordless phone says "cannot connect". The cordless base has power and it indicates that the phone is charging. All of the features on the cordless phone work, with the exception of trying to make a phone call. The phone is less than 6 months old. Could the battery be bad? I have tried moving the cordless phone into the same room as the corded phone and I experience the same problem. Thanks for the help.

    E5908 Handset says "Cant connect" I tried resetting the base, resetting the cordless (disconnect the battery), putting in the base, everything... I have had this problem for over a year.


    I have two identical phones, and still use the base of the one that the headset wont connect, the other one still works fine. But one of the handsets wont connect.


    I see you can buy a replacement handset... but then, how can you program it to your base... since I have two, and I can't connect the handset that is working to the other phone... is there a way to program it????

I have the very same problem and it was after storing numbers into the directory, although that may not have anything to do with it.

You may need to reset the Telephone Answering System. Complete the following steps to reset the Telephone Answering System:
Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base.

Step 2: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base and charger.

Step 3: Set the day and time.

Now it is saying check tel line


There's some problem with the phone's ability to detect a dial tone. Check that the phone's base is connected to your home's AC power and the telephone cord is securely connected at the phone base and wall jack. If still not working, continue checking by disconnecting the cord from the base and connecting a different working phone. If the phone does not work while connected to this cord - there's a problem with the cord. Try replacing the cord between the jack and phone. If it still won't work - you may need to contact your telephone company's repair service to get it fixed. Good luck!

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

Can I connect a CL82409 handset to a CL82409 base system


Yes, and no.
When you buy the new corded base station (CL84109) with 1 handset, that base unit by default is "paired" with only the 1 cordless handset that came with it.

While you can plug both base stations into the landline wall plugs (RJ-11), and when the line rings, both base unit phones will ring and will each operate as independent corded phones would.
But, in this scenario, the cordless phones communicate only through the base unit they are Paired with. The cordless phone paired with the CL84109 corded base unit will not be able to transfer or Intercom between the cordless phones paired with the CL82409 base unit.

However, if you want to transfer the cordless phones that originally came with the CL82409 base unit to work directly with the CL84109 corded base unit, you can likely "Pair" them to work directly with the CL84109 corded base unit for a total of 5 cordless phones to be paired to the CL84109 base unit.

Consult the User Guide that came with the CL84109 base unit for instructions on how to Pair additional cordless phoned to this base unit.

The CL84109 can be expanded and paired with up to 12 cordless phones. So, this should be do-able.

Keeping in mind that the CL82409 will no longer have any phones paired to it and will thus be useless from that point on. (unless you pair more expansion cordless phones to it again)

I bought a Uniden cordless phone, put the batteries in (it has 4 remote bases) and charged it for 20 hours as instructed. I tried calling it on my cell phone but I'm not getting s response. The display...


Double check that the telephone cord is firmly plugged into the back of the cordless phone base, the wall outlet, the outlet where the telephone modem is and at the L1/L2 jack on the back of the telephone modem. Your phone is not getting the dial tone line voltage from the telephone modem to the cordless base. There might be a short in the wiring. (It is unclear as to whether you are setting an old phone into this new base or swapping out and using another base with the old phone. Irregardless, the problem would seem to be not in the phone but ratther narrowed to the cord between phone modem and phone base. That is a very good reason to check how firmly the cord is plugged in.
