Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
We have cable service for phones, TV and computer through Comcast.
Today we unplugged several things in order to move the computer system. Now everything is plugged in and everything is working. The phone has digital light, but when I try to call out, the handset says it is calling, but does not ring out. Instead it goes dead. What to do? I don't think it is Comcast because everything else is working. Is there a reset or something on the base that we need to tweak?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Forget what I said before, the TCX905 does NOT fit into the TRU 8866 base unit with the battery cover on. REMOVE THE BATTERY COVER TO REGISTER THE TCX905 WITH THE TRU8866 and everything works fine....

SOURCE: Resetting the Handset
YOU might need to deregister the hand set first by holding down the red end (hang up key) and keep it down while holding the # key. If deregister wont work use base unavailable and yes, you are sure twice.
List the handset numbers of those working handsets
Using a WORKING handset follow these directions
If you want to register the handset to a different base or
replace a handset with another one, you must first clear the
registration information from the base and the handset.
1. Press and hold [ ] and [#] for
at least 5 seconds, until the
SYSTEM RESET menu
2. Select the DEREGISTER HS

3. Move the cursor to select the handset ID to be de-registered

SOURCE: Phone won't hang up
I solved this exactly problem by doing this:
1) unplug base station from phone line
2) unplug base station from power cube
3) open each phone and disconnect battery (do not replace phone in charger; just let it sit)
4) wait 30 minutes (per instructions from Uniden)
5) reconnect batteries in phone sets
6) reconnect power cube to base station
7) reconnect base station to phone line
8) test: make a call. Hang up. Wait one minute. Pick up line and see if you get a dial tone.
(Basically you're "rebooting" the system. You don't know where the fault lies, so you power down every component to make sure you get it. The '30 minutes' is longer than I'm used to, but after being on hold with Uniden tech support for 20 minutes and finally getting through, the instructions from them were very clear: AT LEAST 30 minutes. OK! I did it - and it worked!)

On most models you can find an option in the menu for De-register? In that case you would select that option and select to deregister the handset.
TRU88 models you go to the main menu and go to De-register HS select yes to deregister the Handset.
DCT5 and DCT6 models: Press menu on the handset. Go to System Reset and Press select. Go to Deregister HS and press select. Arrow up to yes and press select. Then go back into the menu. Go to system reset and press select. Arrow down to Replacing the base and press select. Arrow up to yes and press select.
DCT7 models: Press and hold "end" and "#" until the system reset menu appears on the display. Then follow the instructions from above for the DCT5 and DCT6 deregister procedures once your into the menu.
TRU4 and TRU5 models: Press and hold xfer/del and end until "de-register?" appears. Use the plus+ button to go up to yes and press select.
To register any of the following phones please see you owners manual under either:
