To mute the ringer, while in standby mode press the volume-down button to select Off.
To mute the microphone, while talking press the MUTE softkey.
To put the phone into do-not-disturb mode, press and hold the do not disturb button on the base.

Hi, I can't be heard by the person on the other end and I can't see a mute button anywhere. I can't find the manual either. Can you help?

If it happens during all calls, then it's not a mute button.

Chances are the microphone portion when bad, got wet etc.

Take it back or get it serviced :)

Hello, it sounds to me like you have a dying battery which may cause the phone to ring constantly.

Callers can't hear me because the transmitter isn't working

It appears that either the telephone handset is et to mute, or
the microphone is damaged which can be replaced by a service tech.

GE Cordless phone Model No # 27996GE3-A

I looked at the manual, and there doesn't seem to be a way to un-mute the mic. On other models, the Menu button is also the Mute button.. The only thing I saw that might be the cause is the following:

If this only happens on one of the handsets, did you register that handset? It must sit in the base cradle for 20 seconds before it's registered:

NOTE: In case of a power failure lasting more than 5 minutes, you must put both handsets on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.

Handset microphone volume low

Uniden 900MHz cordless phone can hear ringing. When I pick up the phone, volume is very low, hardly hear other side. Volume controls do nothing to raise it.
