Question about Uniden DCT-7488-2HS Digital Phone

1 Answer

Line always open on Uniden DCT7488

We bought this model phone and one day, for no reason I can find, the phone won't hang up. It holds the line open and no calls can be made or received. I returned the phone and got another of the same model. We've had the new one for about 3 months and now it is doing the same thing. This is two phones with the same problem in less than a year. Any help out there?

    I have this same problem. I noticed this after a thunderstorm came through. Actually, the outlet where the phone was plugged into had its GFI breaker trip.

I moved some furniture around after christmas and unplugged the phone to do so. Now it does what yours is doing. It needs to be re-set up as if I just bought it. Is it possible yours was unplugged? Suggest you start from scratch with the set-up manual. Personally, I can't find mine. I have the french and am translating it. I can't believe the nonsense I am going through just because I unplugged the stupid phone. Good luck.

Cannot clear voice mail display even though there is no voice mail msg tried function/exit and holding down "clear" it won't clear


This should be an easy one to solve. What you need to do is to call and leave yourself a voicemail message. Then call back, listen to your message and then delete the message you left. After that, you should have cleared the icon.

Also, in the future, when calling your voicemail to get your messages, do not hang up after you have listened to the messages. You should stay on the line until the voicemail icon disappears, then you can hang up.

This is a relatively common issue but you should be fine after this.

good luck!!

Phone line won't hang up


I would check the DSL filters. Your phone should not interfere with the DSL. Make sure there is a filter on any line going into your phones. If there is a filter replace it and see if that works. Also, check other equipment on the line, fax, computer, credit card machine. They will need filters from the DSL too. Remove these other devices and check the line for the problem then add them back one at a time.

Well I'm on reception and when I put calls through sometimes the other person on the other line has to push the call to pick up.. It only happens every now again. Most of the time I put the caller on hold...


Save yourself some time and decide how you want to process calls. If you press the DSS button directly, the outside line will go on hold and the inside party is rung. When they answer, if you hang up, the outside held call is immediately connected. If the inside party hangs up first, the outside held call stays in hold.

I would use the procedure "may I tell him who's calling?" Announce the call to the inside party as "I have a call from so-and-so" If they accept, you hang up.

Now, if you have to locate the inside party, press HOLD, then dial the extensions, page, or use the DSS buttons to find them. Tell them they have a call holding on line such-and-such, and they would know that they have to select the blinking line.

Back in the day, I used to be the fastest PBX operator in the place, and I just installed them :-) The key was to send it to a station you knew wouldn't answer and it put it out in a holding pattern before it recalled. This was in the day when you could only hold 3 lines at a time, so it worked well when the board got swamped. Today, with colored lights and timed recall, you don't need to do that.

Base phone handset #1 holding charge


The base unit should not need a charge. It should be powered by the plug in adapter. It may have a battery to keep operation for a short time in a power outage. The adapter may be loose, the adapter could be broken or the plug in the phone may be broken.
