This would normally happen when the cordless handset was still in the charger stand. Are you saying it will still tell you to lift the handset after it's removed from the charger stand or base? I would not waste money buying a new battery as it is most likely not the problem but if you have more than one handset you should try swapping batteries. Removing and re-inserting the battery may reset the phone and clear up the problem as well.

How to get a dial tone on your uniden 6.0 cordless phone


If you have a phone line that is active, lift the handset from the cradle, enter the number and press TALK. Or just press TALK if you want to verify that you have a tone signal.

I purchased an extra handset to a AT&T uniden E2125 system. The phone instructs me to place new handset on main base to register handset. It has registered and now it reads, handset #5. When I try...


I've pulled up the user manual for your phone. Thank you for providing the phone make and model first, and the complete description of your issue!

The manual says the battery should be charged for 15 hours before first use.

You may be set to pulse dialing , even though the factory default is for tone dialing. If you push the 7 key, you would hear 7 pulses or clicks in succession. The dial tone will be gone once a pulse has been received. And you say there are clicks heard and no dial tone.

You can set Handset settings (Page 12 in the PDF copy) and customize how your phone works.

Hit MENU and use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to scroll to the desired feature., this time called DIAL TYPE, then his SELECT. Looks like the sixth menu entry from the top after LANGUAGE.

It should read:
DIAL TYPE
TONE

If it says something else, perhaps PULSE, use those arrow keys again to change the Dial Type to Tone. Then use OFF to back out of the selection and again to clear the menu.

Attached is the link to the manual. Click the button on the screen to "Open as PDF" and you can open it in your PDF reader software or save it to your device for offline reading.

My telstra 8100 cordless phone keeps showing the word searchingnow i cant do anything with the phone.hope someone can help. Cheers


Place the telstra 8100 handset in the charger. Call any number while the handset is in the charger and it should dial out - you can hear the dial tone now. Take the handset out of the charger and you should be able to call normally.

No dial tone


Sounds like you may have a problem with the one handset. Check to see if there is a volume control that you can turn up louder. It may only work while you have the phone in the talk mode. If that doesn't solve the problem then it sounds like the handset is bad. You may also want to plug a headset into the bad phone to see if it will work that way. Providing of course that the handset has a jack to accept a headset. Good luck.

I can hear, but not talk, on my ATS RA2184BB cordless phone.


Have you tried unplugging your base station and all the handsets?

Sometimes the base station, where the power and the telephone line plugs into needs a reset. Just like a computer sometimes it needs a reboot.

If problem presists, take a regular analog phone and plug it in to the same jack as the cordless phone bas station, and see if it is a cable issue/ telephone company issue.

I just purchased the Trimline Model 29265 phone and in the instructions it says that it can be wall mounted if you reverse the handset hook in the base? Where is the handset hook and how do you reverse it. Nothing in the instructions tells you where it is nor how to fix it.
