Static interference on Uniden 5.8Ghz phone

We recently bought a Uniden 8955 5.8Ghz cordless phone and the reception is truly terrible. Even messages on the answering machine are indecipherable. We have tried turning off every appliance in the house, and the statc is always there. Is it just a poor product?

I have a uniden 5.8 ghz cordeless and thought it was a piece of junk as well. I had static or lapse of audio near the router, the kitchen sink, the microwave (even when off) and in the doorway. I switched the frequency on the router and changed the channels on the phones all with no luck. Short of steering clear of my entire downstairs nothing worked.

Just about ready to buy a new phone and hit up google. Saw a posting that said to keep the base away from even the tv. . .hmmm this is exactly where mine was located. So I swapped the digital answering machine base and moved it downstairs and put the additional base near my flat screen. Guess what? Problem SOLVED! I still cannot believe it.

Hope this helps

Cordless phone has volume problems with DSL


For starters that dsl modem should not be filtered.
You should place the splitter directly into the wall jack and place the filter on the side used for the phone. The side feeding the dsl line should not be filtered.
The filter serves 2 purposes. 1 it reduces data noise interference onto the voice line. 2 it prevents dsl interference from voice such as picking up and hanging up the receiver.

Extra Static on the phone recently


Try and position the base away from any sources of interference. The most common interference is caused by wifi or wireless routers and microwave ovens. Both these operate on similar frequencies well in your case a harmonic of anyways. If the antenna is adjustable on the base try and tweak it alittle and make sure the base is in the horizontal position. Hope these hints help.

Constant static and interference


VTech products are generally poorly designed and manufactured. You can probably notice the FCC Warnings on the device that say that you must accept all interference that you may recieve while in use. Go out, splurge a little, and find a telephone made by a well known company like Panasonic, Sony, etc.

Strong static when I'm on the phone


Try changing channels to find one with better reception. If you can't find a clear channel, try plugging a corded phone into the same jack and see if you get better reception. If you are getting static on your corded phones too, call the phone company to have them check the lines. Don't forget that fluorescent lights, vacuum cleaners, and other electric devices with an electromagnet (light ballast, electric motors, etc...) will create interference.

GE Dect 6.0 Cordless - Loud Static


question is are you running a pc and router/ modem on the same land line
if so you will need the line filters to the phone base
the computer data is transferred by the same land line and there is every possibility that the different frequencies is what is causing the static
reference from a uniden trouble shooter ( will be common as the phones use the same medium)
lots of noise or static on the line === possible solutions --check for interference from appliances ( microwave , tv etc ) or wireless devices ( baby monitors wifi equipment etc)
move the handset base away from the source
if you have any device that uses the phone line , add a DSL or telephone line filter to the system

it is possible from the times you state that the interference could be coming form a neighbour or further down the line so the filter may be the option
available from phone shops or places like JAYCAR

Background static


1. How old are you phone lines in the house?  Check the "main" terminal connections.  Clean and reconnect.  (Make note how the wires are connected).

2. The power transformers for the phones maybe you trouble also. Unplug all except the main unit.   Check each transfer one at a time. Do you have static?  One or more may be your problem.  Replace the bad ones if needed.
