The phone is new but long time on the shelf. I charged it overnight, then the first call the battery died in about two minutes.
And then There was then no light on the cradle, even when the phone was replaced, and no charging lights or dial tone has come on.
Will a new battery enable the unit to charge again ? I don't want to buy a new battery if the phone itself has died

Make sure the battery is inserted correctly in the cordless handset and that it is left on the charging cradle to fully charge overnight.
If the battery still does not power the phone even after charging, then the battery may be permanently depleted. Try buying a new battery for the unit. Be sure to fully charge the new battery as well before using.
If you have a multi-tester, check the voltage on the battery packs. The voltage should be equal to or greater than the voltage listed on the battery pack. If the voltage on the packs is too low, either the battery packs are defective or the charging systems of the phones are not operating properly. If the phones are not charging properly, it is likely not cost effective to try to get it repaired.
A friend that worked for GTE advised me some yrs ago to do this and I have NOT had a problem with another battery since
when you get any new Battery charge it plugged in to the ac AND phone jack for a minimum of 24 hrs without using it.
all batteries have some memory and deminish power over time but if it was NOT fully charged to begin with as a yr goes by so does the battery life. hope this works,
I have a Uniden DECT 6.0, 2 handset phone. I charged the batteries twice for at least 15 hours. I usually unplug the base at night and plug it back in in the morning. Both the phones lose their charge overnight. My old Uniden phone never lost its charge. Is this because the new batteries are smaller than the old ones? Are the batteries bad? I bought this phone from Ebay who said this was a brand new phone, box never opened. Thank you.
Yes even if the Battery-low indicator does not light. There may not be enough current left in the battery. it may depend on how much talk time is expended after each full charge. For a phone of this vintage I would get a new battery or upgrade to a 5.8 GHZ phone. Check first to see if the charging light comes on steady when the handset is on the base and no tarnish or debris is on the battery charging terminals on both the handset and the base unit. Clean them with a soft cloth to make sure.
this is a battery prob replacing battery will solve this prob hope this solves your prob make sure the battery connectors are conected propery securely first before replacing if ok then replace batt and prob should be solved check then conectors are clean where the phone sits on base and check phone sit on base properly if it does then it is def the batt replace.
