Question about Uniden 5.8GHz Cordless Phone

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??

Re: Out of range

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.

Re: Out of range

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

Check if the screw of the phone is not too tight, because the button might press by itself if it is too tight.

If the problem is not solved,what I do in a situation like this is to loose the phone and use cotton wool or soft brush to clean it with a little mentholated spirit, leave it in the sun to dry, after drying, allow it to cool a bit and couple it back.

You should not clean the screen with spirit, you should clean only the board and the keypad also. Just a little spirit and don't let it be too much. You can dry in any other heat apart from sun and don't allow it over heat.

I wish you the best.

Clicking on handsets, loss of signal strength.

We decided to remove each handset, one at a time, from the system to see if we could determine if any of them were defective and maybe the cause of our problems. We took handset #1 and removed its battery. We continued to have the clicking and other noise. We put the battery back in handset #1 and removed the battery of handset #2. Immediately we noticed we did not experience the noise and clicking problems. We have concluded that handset #2 is defective. To verify we will keep handset #2 out of service for a week. At the end of a week we will reinstall the battery and if we have noise and clicking we have verified handset #2 is defective, the cause of our noise and clicking and needs to be replaced. Just to be on the safe side we will continue testing each additional handset to verify if any others are defective.

Handset has message Out of Range even though it is fully charged on on the handset.

The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone:
1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.

Uniden 2645 out of range

The problem of phone not registering is sorted, I simply put that hand piece(2) into base station and it registered straight away, as for the "out of range" problem, we have not had a long enough call today to know yet , hopefully resetting to factory settings helped.

Open the handset to clean keypad

Hi Sue,

Sometimes there's a screw or 2 inside the battery compartment, other than that they snap together.

Once you get the keypad out, wash it in warm water with a couple drops of dish liquid, rinse and pat dry. The Pc Board the keypad sits on can be cleaned with alchohol and Q-Tip.

Hope that helps.

GE Model 27911 DECT 6.0 Additional Cordless Handset not working

I had the same problem. What worked for me, after several unsuccessful registration attempts, was to disconnect the phone handset battery for about 1 min and then reconnect the battery. Run the handset registration procedure again. It registered for me on the first attempt after the battery reinstall. Good luck.

Handset not working

I had this exact problem. My solution was to clean the top of the condensor microphone. Something was spilled onto the phone and ran down into the hole that leads to the microphone. It not only affected the microphone, but made some of the buttons stick as well. The phone is not difficult to disassemble, just try not to touch the electronic components. If you are experienced in electronics, you may know that using a wrist strap( available at electronics supply stores or online) and grounding yourself will help protect the electronics. While you are at it, get some pure isoproply alcohol, and some cotton swabs, making sure that the swab is saturated with the alcohol. Just clean around the interior area of the phone where the condensor microphone is. You will want to even remove the black screen over the microphone to be sure everything is clean!!! Make sure the little hole that leads from the front of the phone to the microphone is clear and clean. I believe you will solve your problem.
