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

Waterproof handset appears to be stuck on "Please Wait" since I bought it a week ago at Fry's. Red charge light is on on the base. Can't get battery cover off because one screw was already stripped. Tried the "resetting handset" in trouble shoot section to no avail. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Bob

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! :-)

HOPE THIS HELPS!!

Most likely, your rechargeable battery went dead. Replace the battery, charge it fully overnight, and the phone should be fine again.

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.

How do you register a waterproof phone (TWX977) to a TRS9585


Not sure if you still have this problem, but...

Basically go on you base unit, and hit "MENU/SELECT". Scroll down to "REGISTER HANDSET" and click "MENU/SELECT". On your waterproof handset, hold the "#" key until it displays "REGISTERING HANDSET". And voila! After that finishes, your waterproof handset will be good to go!

I have a TWX955 cordless phone. one of the recievers is a waterproof phone. Instructions said the rechargeable battery was already in the phone. (all of the other phones required me to install the battery...


Take the cradle for the waterproof phone and plug it into the outlet close to the answering machine base. Hold the waterproof phone in one hand, with the other press the "menu" button, press up to the "register phone", then press "menu" again. The answering machine base should say "registering phone". Once it does press the "#" key on the waterproof phone and it should say registering phone. When they beep the waterproof phone should be working. The reset instructions in the owners manual may work if you move the WP phone and cradle close to the base. I stumbled onto this method after reading about a newer model. As i took the WP phone downstairs the # key would activate the registering feature but would when I walked back upstairs. So i figured Id take both downstairs and BAMMM, it worked. Good Luck all! BTW mine came with a battery, and uniden probably hasnt figured this out either.

UNIDEN DWX207 SERIES ITS WATERPROOF


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 click...now it is working. I don't think the tiny pin that comes with the phone activates the phone properly.
