    this will happen even if i have not had the phone for a month? and i am supposed to take three phones off the dock all day? i dont understand that. shouldnt i be able to leave them on the docks so they do not get lost and actually have a charge when i need them?

The batteries often go bad especially if you leave it on the charger all the time. i was told to leave it off charge all day and put it on at night and they would last longer. any ways take one of the batteries out of one of the other phones if they are the same and put in the one that will not hold a charge if it works fine go and buy a new battery. you can usually get them a wal mart very reasonable.

    yes even if its just a month old the battery could be bad. as far as leaving three phones off the hook.....i dont do it myself but it does make them hold charge a shorter length of time and makes them go bad faster...not usually in a month but maybe you got a bad apple. before you go buy a new battery take one from another phone and make sure its not the phone itself. it could have been dropped or something spilled on it to make the actual phone itself go bad.

How do I rescue my BT Freestyle 750 from being stuck "Searching" and remedies that are "Not Possible"?


Have you tried removing the batteries and letting the internal power decay for an hour or so - in other words try to get them to forget what they were. Then replace batteries and try again. I guess you've consulted the user manual, is there a reset button hole anywhere on the base unit? The sort you stick a pin into.

Iphone 4s screen and battery replacement now only powers on thru cord and base


Your new battery might has some issues. Put your old battery back on and try your charging cord and base. If it starts charging your old battery; it means new battery has a problem. If old battery doesn't charge too; i suggest you to try a working charger. If it still doesn't response; most probably during replacement process; you damaged pins of your phone's charging port connector.

If broken pin is at above red circuled area; you are lucky because it has price around $5. But if broken pin is at motherboard side, it may cost you around $50 or more due to motherboard repair.

My phone is saying "out of range" it wont let me make any calls. how can i fix it???


When the base and handset stop talking to each other, it is generally because of a power interruption. Modern cordless phones transmit a security code from handset to base, when you start a call. This helps reduce the likelihood that you and your neighbor will be talking over each other, if your phones are on the same channel. If they get out of sync, usually the phone will just beep "out of range."
  • To reset the chip which holds the security code:

    1. Place the phone back in the cradle for a slow five count. Then, pick it up and try it. If it works, you are done. If not, go to step 2.

    2. Unplug the telephone's base unit. Slide the battery cover off the handset, and remove the battery. Wait 30 seconds or so. Plug the base unit back in. Wait five seconds or so. Replace the battery in the handset. Place the handset in the base unit for a slow five count (as above). Now try it. This will almost always solve the problem.

    If this does not work, it may mean that the chip which holds your security code is now defunct and needs to be serviced. *

  • Clean the battery contacts in case the battery is not getting charged. Clean the charging contacts on your base unit with a pencil eraser. This gives just enough abrasion to rub off any oxidation, without impairing the chromed surface of the contacts.

  • If the battery is new and you are still experiencing problems, the phone will need to be services. Contact your authorized Service Center. *

My phone doesnt charge


Your phone doesn't charge? or does not hold a charge?

If the battery meter is not running when ur charger is plugged in, it could be a charging port problem or a battery problem. Go to a nearby shop to have someone try another battery & to determine if that is a battery or a phone problem. If it's the battery then buy a new one. if it's the phone, have a Samsung tech repair it for you

My uniden dct648-3 keeps saying "warning please wait" and it fully charged - so it says. i can hear the phone ring but as soon as i pick it up and hit talk, that darn message appears and i hear nothing....


I had this exact same problem. I had to reset all three handsets. Select menu, system reset, replacing base, then follow directions. This worked for one unit but the other ones I had to buy new batteries eventhough they showed fully charged. Good Luck

Cant register/install a new dect 6.0 uniden 2060 phone


I had a similar problem which I finally fixed. You did not say if any of your phones registered.
First try the following recommended by Uniden Support:
Your phone(s) should be fully charged before putting them on the main base.
Unplug the battery from the phone by removing the battery cover and removing the connector. Then, push the # and * key together and hold while you plug the battery back in (requires some dexterity). Continue to hold the two keys until you hear a confirmation tone. This will force the phone to reregister. Put the phone on the main base (if you are sure it has a fully charged battery) and see if it will reregister it to solve the problem.
That did not work for me. So, I followed the instructions to de-register the handset (even though it hadn't really registered). But, I also pretended like the Base was not available (because using the base in this step also failed).
1) Press and hold the hang up and # keys for at least 5 seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Select.
3) Select the base you want to deregister from, press Select and then move the cursor to Yes and select.
This causes the phone to delete any of its base information.
At this point, again insure that your phone shows the battery is fully charged and if it is not, put it on the stand alone charger base (not the main base). With the battery fully charged, place it on the base and try registering again by placing it in the main base.
If neither of these approaches help, contact support at Uniden.com.
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.
