Question about Uniden 5.8GHz Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Out of range

I spilled milk on handset #1 and immediately took out battery and cleaned. I let it dry over night and then put battery back in and put on charger. The phone does not charge and when I push the talk button it flashes connecting and then says "out of range". Handset #2 works fine. I have tried to switch batteries, but that does not make a difference. Please help, I love my phones!!! Also, I can't find my instruction manual. Do you know where I could get a new one??

    I put new batteries in both phones. They do not work now. Out of range comes on the CID screen. They are both in the exact same place as before I put in the new batteries. My phone is Model DCT646-2.

    I really like these phones and do not want to get new ones. Please help!

I successfully reset Radio Shack (Uniden) 5561 handset by reconnecting the battery while holding the '*' and '#' key, then press the right upper soft key near the LCD window. The display will indicate "EEPROM/RAM cleared!!" and will return the handset to the factory default condition - looking for a base to register to.

I have a Uniden answer system with 3 phones. Nothing shows on the CID screen on the 1st phone. I called the company and they told me that they would charge my card $10.00 for a new phone. About a month later, with no new phone, my card was not charged and the company called me to tell me that my R number was getting old and did I still want the phone. I gave her a number card number and still did not get the phone. Is there any way someone can contact me because I still want the phone so I can see who is calling. Anna Marie Gray

If water was spilled in it, the batteries should have been removed immediately, if you could remove the circuit board from the casing, dry it off and place it under a lamp for a few hours it should have been perfectly fine. If a soft drink, sugar base or other substance was spilled in it; the board would need to be cleaned, a small amount of soap and water can work, use a cotton swab, only clean the affected area of the spill, make sure to rinse all the soap off, dry with towel, then place under a lamp to get all the moisture out. Also make sure you clean the bottom side of the buttons that contact the circuit board. If it doesn't work then you may have to buy another unit.

Sticky calculater keys

First-take the batteries out. You should be able to take the case off from the back. Use a q-tip and alcohol. It will clean and dry immediately. Let dry a day to make sure there is no liquid in it before you put the batteries back in.

Saeco milk island - no froth

I tried cleaning the thing throughout, and drying it on paper towels, but still no froth. Luckily, I bought the machine from a reputable dealer with superb integrity. He fixed the problem for me by returning the milk island and getting me a new one. It works perfectly now.

"use genuine battery"

I left my phone in the yard and it got rained on (don't ask), and I brought it inside, took the battery out, and let it dry for a day. I reinserted the battery and it worked for a few days until i got the "Use genuine battery" message. I put a small piece of white paper (actually the back of the label of a bottle of Blue Moon) over the moisture indicator, put the battery back in, and everything worked, much to my surprise.
