This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.

How do I get a dial tone.can answer the phone.just cannot dial out

I am NOT familiar with YOUR make and model of phone, BUT.... I've had several cordless phone systems over many years, and have had the same problem that you describe. First, here is some background info for you:

The telephone company systems USUALLY have two different dialing systems:
  1. The "old" ROTARY DIALS worked by MECHANICALLY sending out different numbers of electrical pulses which the MECHANICAL "receivers" at the phone company "Central Office" buildings would read and thus connect you to the dialed number.
  2. Some years ago, a "new" dialing system was initiated. That system was called Dual-Tone-Multi-Frequency [or for short, DTMF].
DTMF uses BUTTON KEYS which put out a different electronically generated TONE [related to] for each different NUMBER key pushed, and THAT series of tones told/tells the phone company Central Office receiver computer the number to which you wanted to be connected.

Around the world over the years, most phone companies have, and still use one of these two dialing systems, AND...

Most cordless phone manufacturers designed their phones to work WITH EITHER system, BUT....

The customer IS REQUIRED to "SELECT" which system his phone company uses, while the customer is "SETTING UP" his/her new cordless phone.

THAT process IS INCLUDED in ALL cordless phone set-up instruction packages I've ever seen!!!!!!

Either you need to carefully read and study YOUR installation-set-up instructions and then PROPERLY set your phone's dialing system [to PULSE or DTMF], OR GET SOMEONE who KNOWS WHAT he, or she is doing to do it for you.

I, and I think no one else is able to guide you via back and forth messaging on this site. At least I know I can't because I'm not acquainted with your cordless phone, AND I don't have an instruction/set-up manual to consult!!!!!

Track down your manual, OR search for a replacement manual; the dialer system selection process is NOT DIFFICULT IF you have the manual!!!!!!!

I have a CTP8600 Cordless phone made by Coby in 2003. The battery pack for the handset is apparently no longer charging. Coby has stopped making (or supporting) this product. I would like to replace the...

Try taking the battery pack to your local radio shack store. They can usually match the original battery pack with a new, compatible one even if they no longer make the EXACT one that came with the phone. This recently happened to me with a panasonic phone bought around 2002. phone stopped charging, no longer make the phone, etc. I went down to radio shack and they fixed me up with a new battery (not exact brand/part number as original) and it worked. Hope this helps you.

Or from elsewhere on your telephone line?

if its a message on a digital answering device attached or built into your Uniden cordless phone..... what type and model is the complete cordless phone?
( ie: 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz 6.0GHz??? Is Uniden cordless phone a Multi handset (1, 2, 3, 4..handsets?) do you need an instruction manuel on how to access it, or did you loose a password?

Sorry for all the questions.. but many cordless phones All operate slightly different, and I'd love to give you a quick fix fast.

Wharfedale orb cordless phone - battery problem

The positive terminals on AAA batteries come in different heights, with the greatest 3 times the size of the smallest. All DECT phones that use AAA including Wharfedale will only take the ones with the highest terminal. Others will not make contact. Warren.

You can connect up to 4 cordless sets (Operating manuals, page 21, states 3 but they really mean 3 in addition to the one packed with the base, for a total of 4). I've head four connected for over 5 years now and they work fine. In your case, try disconnecting the battery of the cordless for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect. You may also want to disconnect the power cable from the base unit for a half minute or so. I found this method to be equivalent to a cold boot, and quite effective in getting all phones to work again after a storm or power outage.
