Uniden PowerMax 5.8 no audio transmission on two of three remotes

I have a Uniden PowerMax 5.8 with two remote handsets. Handset 1, developed 1/2 to 1 second interuption during use, then a week or so later audio transmission stopped completely. I can hear the caller, but they can't hear me. Then phone 3 stopped audio transmission too. Phone 2 works fine. All phones are charged. Thanks

BOUGHT REFURBUSHED HANDSET ON LINE. cannot GET IT TO REGISTER USING THE MANUAL. TRIED INSTRUCTIONS WITH HANDSET AND ORIGINAL MANUAL. CANNOT GET INTO MENUE ON HANDSET. JUST SAYS DID NOT RETGISTER.


I hope this helps. If memory serves, when I had this unit you need to register Handset # 1. All of the other handsets should fall into sync, once this is completed. Check your manual to see if there is anything similar to my hunch. Good Luck! Have a great day.

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.

Try putting the handset in the main unit and see if it will fully charge. It may very well be a problem with the individual charger, not the handset batteries.

Uniden powermax 24 out of range


Check the line comming into the main handset base. Make sure it is not cracked or your cat hasn't chewed through it.LOL This sounds like the most likley solution. Try hooking the main phone line to an ordinary old fashioned touch tone phone with a wired handset and if that is working then the problem lies in the main base of your new phone. It could be as simple as reprogramming the base.

Here is a link to the pdf format owners manual from Uniden for this phone:

Remote Operation
You can check, play, or delete messages, even record a new greeting message from a
remote location (when you are away from home, or from another room using a
handset). Additionally, you can turn on or off your answering system remotely.
Remote access away from home
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touchtone
telephone.
1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering
system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is
off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a PIN Code"
on page 25).
3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages
stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For
help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
4) Enter a command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered
within 2 seconds. You may select a command from the following chart:
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to
repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat
the current message.
**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record functions, the first time you
enter the corresponding command, the phone starts recording. If you want to
stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.
5) After the command has finished, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the
system is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this
time from the chart above.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering system
automatically returns to standby.

To make the message light go away when there are no messages - remove the handset from the base and press and hold the "find handset" key for 5 seconds. Resets it!

Hooray!
