When you received your phone, there is a black button on the bottom of the phone with a note to "press here before use." You will notice that between the phone and the button there is a piece of cardboard to prevent the phone from being activated during shipment. Remove the cardboard and insert the black pin all the way into the small hole in the base of the handset. Tthis will activate your phone. Charge the phone for a full 24 hours after inserting the black button and activating the phone. The phone does not charge at all until the black button is completely inserted into the base of the phone.

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.

Uniden DSS7855+1, flashing ''welcome! please wait...'', wont work

This is not a direct solution to your problem, but a workaround for a similar situation. I have two headsets and two charging stations. One of the headsets was stuck with the message ''Welcome! please wait''. When I put the phone on the charging station it usually sits on nothing would happen, but when I put it on the other station the phone came back to life. The non-working charging station will still charge the phone so it is worth keeping.

Uniden DECT2085-4WX: waterproof handset displays "Please Wait"

Hey! I have the SAME exact handset. I HAD the same exact problem except this is what you NEED to do:

On the bottom on the handset, there are two "HOLES".

There's a smaller "rubberized" hole and to the right, a later "Double Layer" hole.

The a ball point pen and GENTLY push into the lager, "double layer" hole.

You will then hear a CLICK or a POP. THIS IS OKAY.

Your phone should now be placed on the charger for at least 25 hours prior to first use.

This procedure will ONLY need to be done ONCE.

This is necessary because the battery pack was factory installed by Uniden, therefore the installed battery is NOT "contacted" to the phone's circuit, yet.

WHEN YOU "CLICK" the SEAL w/ a BALL POINT PEN, you are "CLICKING A METAL CONTACT" inside the phone, which causes the battery to make contact with the phone.

After this, I AM SURE YOU WILL NOT have this problem again! :-)

Same thing was happening to my phone...Welcome! Please wait... After at least 40 hours of charging I was getting a little fed up. I picked up the handset, took a ball point pen and pushed the "activation" area on the bottom the phone...heard a it is working. I don't think the tiny pin that comes with the phone activates the phone properly.

You may need to "reset" the whole system1.gif. Do this by :
1 Unplug phone line, power to charger base, and remove the batteries.
2 Wait a couple of minutes.
3 Plug in batteries first, then phone line, and finally the power cord.

Then try to set the phones in the basecharger to register.
