Question about Uniden EXA15580 Cordless Telephone

1 Answer

Telephone noise About a year ago I added DSL to my phone bill. This is the dsl that uses a signal off of the phone line but you can use the internet and phone at the same time. Daily I have phone noise. Sometimes there is no noise at all then other times a lot of funny noises. Telephone provider says it could be any number of things causeing this. I have filters on all my phone jacks. I have replaced my telephone wiring from the telephone box to the inside of my house. Nothing seems to help. The noise is very interruptive at times when talking on the phone. I would welcome any advice anyone might have. THANK YOU

Ours has the same problem. We believe it is the sigal from the wireless router (do you have one of those?) and it is interfering with the signal from the telephone handset to the charger. I would recommend trying to switch channels on your telephone handset. Push the channel button until it becomes clear. Hope this helps.

Constant static and noise on the cordless, have not had this problem with other phones in the same location. I have tried the frequency scan- no difference. The noise is so bad the cordless cannot be used.


The main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line

* Weather:
Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
Checked the connections the cable and the Sockets
If you have the Test socket or the First Socket where the Telephone is is entering .. check the Connections there

* Electrical interference:
Check the Power lines,
Check radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may causing noise on the phone line.

* Other phone devices:
Check for the Connection to the FAX check by unpluging the FAX Machine or answering machines,
Disconnect the other phones and line splitters --
Disconnect the Splitters or devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.

* DSL services:
The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.
Note : high-frequency signals coming from DSL helps for FAST Internet Connection speed which sometime cause the problem to the Phone or Voice signals for this need to contact to ISP to check the Voice margin .. that may effect your internet Speed

IF the above wont work..

You can try keeping the device near Heater .. it could be the Moisture which might causing this issue
or
Show the Device to the Service provider to repair it

Loud static noise with dial tone and humming during conversation


There is not enough information in your question to diagnose properly the source of interferences. I will however venture an educated guess. If your broadband internet connection is some form of DSL you must put filter on all the telephone sets. In other words, the telephone line going from the wall to a telephone set must pass through a DSL filter.
If I made a wrong guess, do not impale the answer; post a comment instead.

Vtech model 2656 caller id is not working. How can I fix this?


Hello,

Found this on the VTECH support site regarding your model:

Tip 1 of 1

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information.

In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both you and your caller’s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems.

If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause caller ID disruption, static, noise and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.

In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.

Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller’s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received.

In addition if you would like to contact them or get more info on your phone, then use this link:

First,to eliminate any confusion between you and any phone technician or electrician, phones plug into a "jack" and power plugs into an "outlet" and a light bulb plugs into a "socket" ;-)
Ok, now to answer your question, yes its very easy to move your phone line to any existing jack that you have in your house. This is a simple, physical job that only requires simple hand tools and shouldn't take a tech. more than 10 mins to do. you phone "number" is not effected in any way. if you have DSL or high speed internet through the phone company, then you really only need one jack not a secondary at the same place. DSL runs on the same phone line as your dial tone, just a different frequency. If you have other phone jacks in your house with phones plugged in then you just need filters to plug into those jacks and then just plug phones into those filters. They are small , about the size of a silver dollar. I assume you want your phone and computer with internet at the same place you were asking about. You don't need a filter there because your DSL modem has one built in .
You only have to worry about keeping your same phone number if you are moving out of town and want to keep the same number. This is possible. Its called "porting" a number. Its done in a dept. in the phone company that does dial tone programming. A coulple clicks on their computer and its ready for a technician to get it to your new house. Depending on the company there may be a charge.
I am a phone tech for the largest land line phone company in the U.S. and have been for 11 years and counting, so feel free to ask me any questions.

Do I have to use the DSL filter. I have comcast phone service. thank you


The DSL Filter is only needed if you have a telephone and DSL service coming through on the same line. You are using Comcast digital voice, are you using them for cable internet as well?

I presume you are. then I would say you dont need the filters.
If you still have DSL and home phone then use the filters on the phone

My phone has been out for some time. Just noise on my phone. the outside plug in works fine, so I assume it is my inside wiring. This morning I unplugged all my phones, and hooked them up one by one. ...


Replace the DSL filter. it is needed to in order to prevent interference between phones and DSL service operating on the same line. Without the installation of DSL filters, high-frequency signals or echoes from analog devices can result in reduced performance and connection problems with DSL service, and the high-frequency signals from the DSL service can result in line noise and other issues for analog devices.

When i dial and press the talk butto, i still hear a dial tone...please help


Please follow these troubleshooting steps;

Tip 1 of 9
Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, you can conclude that there is nothing wrong with the phone. Consider trying a phone that operates on a different wireless frequency.



Tip 2 of 9
If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones), caller ID disruption and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.
In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.
Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.



Tip 3 of 9
Other electronic products (i.e., 802.11 wireless networking products, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless phones) can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.


Tip 4 of 9
To get better reception, try moving the telephone base to higher location. Relocate telephone base near a window if using telephone outside.



Tip 5 of 9
Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade in and out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off any audio devices near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting the person at the other end of the conversation while they are speaking. If background noise cannot be controlled, you should terminate speakerphone operation and return to normal handset mode.



Tip 6 of 9
Disconnect any other equipment that is connected in series with your phone. If you phone begins to perform normally, there is a compatability issue with your other equipment.



Tip 7 of 9
If your phone shares a power outlet with a modem, or if it is plugged in to a shared surge protector, try plugging the phone (or modem/surge protector) in at a different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your phone or modem farther apart from one another, or use separate surge protectors.



Tip 8 of 9
There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. This is normal radio operation.



Tip 9 of 9
You may have a line problem. To test for a line problem, test your unit at another location such as your neighbor’s or relative’s house. If your unit works at another location, contact your local telephone company

DSL line. Possible that filters are not plugged in. When DSL service is being used on your line, filters must be installed at every jack that is in use. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones) and other issues on your line. (ex. Caller ID problems). In order to avoid having this issue, the service provider gives DSL filters to all customers when they sign up for service. These microfilters must be used because they allow your phones to work properly by blocking the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted through the telephones. DSL filters should be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. If you are not using the filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly Caller ID issues on your phones that are plugged into jacks without filters. Please contact your service provider for filter information and proper installation. Interference: Other 2.4 GHz products. Other products that use the 2.4 GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. Items include: Radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, other 2.4GHz cordless phones and 2.4 GHz intercoms or monitors. If any of these items are in the area, they can interfere with the performance of this phone; try relocating the phone. Other 5.8 GHz products. Other products that use the 5.8 GHz band such as home networking (wireless modems) other 5.8 GHz cordless products (phones etc.) can interfere with the use of this phone. Try relocating the phone. Interference from microwave. Microwaves work on the same frequencies as the 2.4 GHz phones. If the unit is on when the microwave is running, it is normal to experience static at that time. Do not plug this phone in the same outlet or near the microwave. Environmental. Normal radio operation. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. Try channing channels. Surge protector or modem. Unplug modem or surge protector that is connected to the unit. Building structure limits range. Relocate telephone base near window when using telephone outside. Base unit located in basement or other low area. Relocate telephone base to higher location. The unit will get better reception if it is not located in a low area. Video displays, television sets and personal computers may cause interference. Video displays, television sets and personal computers can cause interference on this phone. Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet were there is no major appliance plugged in. If the base is near any of the above mentioned, locate the base to another room. Possible telephone line/service problem. Try using your equipment at a different location (i.e. friend or neighbors). If the unit functions properly in the new location, contact your local telephone company for assistance; additional charges to be incurred by customer may apply.
