I have an older Uniden PowerMax 5.8 and the handsets are old and one is held together with tape. The second hand set was rained on yesterday. It was sorta working but I worried i would short it out if I...

Hello, Terrie.

Sorry for the delay in responding - time zone difference.

First, let's see if we can fix your handset (from Uniden):

1. Remove the battery cover and leave it off for ventilation.

2. Remove the battery pack by disconnecting.

3. Leave the battery cover off and the battery pack disconnected for at least 3 days.

4. Once completely dry, reconnect the battery pack and the battery cover.

5. Recharge the handsset's battery pack for 20 hours in the base unit before using the phone. IMPORTANT: You must unplug the telephone line while recharging the battery pack
to avoid charge interruption.

I believe there is a way to export your phone book to another handset, but not without reviving your original phone. Unlike a cell phone, there is no memory card to remove and transfer.

Let me know what happens.

Hope this helps.

This is for a 5.8 GHz uniden. Hit "menu/clock" then use volume up and down key to select number of rings and then below "menu/clock" hit "set". That should it.

My phone does not ring when a call is received

I've found this to be a problem with regular phone lines (POTS) and Uniden phones. Uniden phones do not seem to support 90v @ 20hz ringing voltage / frequency. They work fine in every aspect except for ringing. These phones do work well with voip, where you aren't connected to the telephone company and have calls routed over the internet. The boxes that handle the voip calls generally produce less than 90v and work well w/ Uniden phones.
