Question about Uniden 5.8GHz Expandable Cordless Phone System with Digital Answering System

3 Answers

I have a TWX955 cordless phone. one of the recievers is a waterproof phone. Instructions said the rechargeable battery was already in the phone. (all of the other phones required me to install the battery pack) I have charged the handset for 25+ hours and it does not respond. I get no message in the display and no dial tone.

    I have the same issue, and I've been trying to reach Uniden support for a few days with no success.

    I have the same problem. I found you can take the battery out of the box and replace it from a batter from one of the other phones. I then get a registration message that tells you to put the phone on the base to register it. I have not found how to do this with the waterproof phone.

    Apparently this is a big problem. After bringing mine home and having this problem, I opened the back to find no battery in it. Took it back to Sams and got another one. Same thing. Going back again later today to either get a free battery or my money back.

Take the cradle for the waterproof phone and plug it into the outlet close to the answering machine base. Hold the waterproof phone in one hand, with the other press the "menu" button, press up to the "register phone", then press "menu" again. The answering machine base should say "registering phone". Once it does press the "#" key on the waterproof phone and it should say registering phone. When they beep the waterproof phone should be working. The reset instructions in the owners manual may work if you move the WP phone and cradle close to the base. I stumbled onto this method after reading about a newer model. As i took the WP phone downstairs the # key would activate the registering feature but would when I walked back upstairs. So i figured Id take both downstairs and BAMMM, it worked. Good Luck all! BTW mine came with a battery, and uniden probably hasnt figured this out either.

Un4given is correct. Press the "menu" button on the base and scroll down to the "register phone". Take the WP phone away from the master base and hold the #. I've been fighting this for months and could not get it to register. All I needed to do was move away from the base. Go figure. Thanks un4given.

Most likely, your rechargeable battery went dead. Replace the battery, charge it fully overnight, and the phone should be fine again.

I charged my KX-TGA652, it keeps saying use rechargeable battery. Does not seem to hold charge

It does take rechargeable batteries. Remove the back and change batteries for Ni-cad or similar rechargeable batteries. Trying to recharge normal batteries is dangerous. Any rechargeable make of battery will normally work and they recharge when phone is in cradle

Uniden DECT 1580-4WXT waterproof unit appears to be dead - will not charge or register with base unit. Just bought system at Sam's Club 2 days ago. The other 3 units work fine.

This phone uses inductive charging because of the waterproof feature. I suggest that you remove the
battery cover from the back of the handset, unplug
the battery, and then plug it back into the handset.
This solution worked for me.

My handset reads Low Battery Charge Handset and i put it on the base and it wont charge how do i fix this?

Well.. You may not like my solution.. because I had the same problem with the same phone as you have and everything I did was not successful. WHY you ask??

Because it sounds to me that the rechargable battery itself is either defective, worn out \Or maybe the phone was dropped causing the battery damage, due to the sudden jolt when it hit the floor, as these rechargable batteries are not indistructable??)

I bet if you go toUNIDEN site or the electronic store and replace the rechargable battery, with a BT800/BP800 Battery Pack as what I had to get (but check make/model of the battery pack you already have installed in handset), your phone will continue to operate as if it was new again. I paid about $30- for my battery pack.

Low battery in Uniden cordless phone.

Unless you have one of the water proof phones, hold the handset with the keypad facing your palm, and the top facing your body. Press very firmly at the endention on the battery cover pushing it in a little and down at the same time. Sometimes they are pretty tight but it should come off with a little effort. If it is a waterproof phone, there are four small screws at the corners of the battery cover that will need to come out before the cover will come off, be very carefull as the screw heads are fairly easy to strip and if that happens it is almost impossible to put it back together and still have it waterproof.

Unable to register handset TWX955 Series

I have a TRU9585 Base.

On the BASE press menu/select, scroll down to register handset using the button to the right of the display, and press select. The LED on the base will flash quickly.

Now pick up the TWX955 handset (the one that won't register), and press and hold # until it registers.

Worked for me.
