Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

No dial tone. No calls. Can't call out.

I have a Uniden wireless phone and answering machine combo, with 2 additional wireless bases, 9 months old (plus one oldfashioned regular phone). I came back from being away a few days. The phones were working when I left. Not now. No dial tone. Can't receive or make calls on any Uniden phones, although old-fashioned phone works fine, no problem. A message on the main Uniden/answering machine combo reads E4. I cannot find a reference to this in the manual. ????

Please advise.

    I have Comcast Digital Voice and everytime we move our computer (we are doing a lot of construction on our house) we have the same problem. The tech came out and fixed it but I cannot remember what he did. I called tonight because we moved the computer back to the original room and the cordless phones are out again.

Uniden powermax 24 out of range

Check the line comming into the main handset base. Make sure it is not cracked or your cat hasn't chewed through it.LOL This sounds like the most likley solution. Try hooking the main phone line to an ordinary old fashioned touch tone phone with a wired handset and if that is working then the problem lies in the main base of your new phone. It could be as simple as reprogramming the base.

We've had the same problem with our new Uniden phone. Sounds like someone's on the other line - no dial tone and answering machine doesn't work. The telephone line works though because we plugged our old phone in and it works fine. Any solutions anyone?

Phone and answering machine are connected properly

I am still in need of a solution. It is not a 2 phone (cordless) it is 1 and know I have not solved the problem, I was hoping you would be able to help. I am not interested in purchasing anything other than what I already have.

Please help me resolve my problem, it doesn't sound like anyone has looked at or reviewed it. Thank you

Plug out the power from the main charger and then plug in again. It needs to reset after they have gone dead. Immediately you can lift one of them off the charger and you will hear your dial tone.
