Make sure the phone is swithced off imediatly, take out the battery or power suply, take appart the unit as much as you can and leve to dry for 24 hours underneath a lamp, do not use a hair dryer or heater as this heat will cause the cb to expand and can cause more damage, after 24 hours there wont be a prob

Numbers 2, 5, & 8 do not work on my Uniden 6.0 cordless handset.


IF YOU ARE mechanically inclined you can take the phone apart and under the rubber keypad and contact board, with a small amount of soapy warm water on a cloth rag, wipe the gold contacts and the board, the keypad can be lightly scrubbed with a tooth brush under running warm water..NOW dry everything ! reassemble. it might be soda pop that's blocking contact or dog drool ? (my dog says the cat did it !) any how this is your best chance, and is not that difficult of a task, works for tv remotes too but they are harder nut to crack, generally phones come right apart, tools needed (small screwdriver kit) good luck Patsy. and if'n I was of any help, a reply would be nice.. jay

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

Handset leftout in rain. Now just screeches. Have been drying it out for 10 days now but still screeching.


Once water works it's way into an electronic device the damage is done, drying it out will not help most times because the internal components are already damaged.

I dropped 1 of our uniden phones in water and it is not working. It is from a set of 3. The other two are fine, Whay should I do?


It might be too late. but...

1. Take out the battery from the phone.
2. shake an excess water from the phone.
3. Allow to dry for 48 hrs.
4. Replace the battery and maybe the phone will work.

I have a uniden that's been in a swimming pool and it came back to life.

Good luck.

I have a Uniden PowerMax 5.8 GHZ two-phone system and I dropped one of the phones in water. It worked for a little bit, but last night it shocked me and cut off my call and I do not want to use it anymore....


Basically yes, check where you bought it they may have 'defective' units (bases) that they might swap out with you. If time isn't a factor, contact Uniden, and tell them what happened re: getting shocked (hopefully the phone had a chance to dry out prior to you using it); if neither of these avenues work, you'll have to do an internet search to see what's available. Give the amounts of time and travel, it may be cheaper to replace the whole phone & base.

Hope this helps.

The phone will not work with 220 V. And as an FYI, taking the unit out of the country will void your warranty.
