Cordless phone doesn't pick up

One of our cordless phones wil not allow us to pick up calls. We can call out with no problem, but although it rings when a call is coming in, it will not pick up the call. The other 3 cordless phones that are in the same network are working just fine. My coreless phone is actually ythe 7151 model.

Cordless phone base only rings three times till the answering machine picks up

Read your manual on how to choose more rings before your answering machine picks up...usually 7 is the most you can set it for.

My uniden xdect sse25 cordless doesn't ring for long enough before diverting to the answer machine I have mobility problems how can i extend the length of the ring

From the handset, press Select/Menu and then press the down arrow to get to Ans Setup. Press Select again. Go down to Ring Time. Then select the number of rings (6, 9, 12 or Toll Saver (TS)). Press Select then press Flash/Exit to exit the menu system. Toll Saver picks up after 2 rings if you have new messages or 4 rings if you don't. This lets you hang up before the answering system picks up if you are using the remote phone access feature.

Note: if you have Voice Mail from your telephone provider, you need to set that to a longer number of rings separately. Consult with your phone company on that option.

The manual for the XDECT SSE25 is available from Uniden here: . See page 19 (23 of the PDF). You will need Adobe Reader to access the manual.

I hope this helps.

I have a Uniden cordless unit hooked in 4 lines. Incoming calls ring briefly for about 1 second and go out! You can talk if you pick up but not sure why no normal rings. There is no problem calling out....

When someone calls you and your phone behaves this way, does the caller get disconnected? The phone may be causing this, but it may also be due to trouble in the telephone line itself. The trouble is caused by defective wiring, a partial short circuit. When you pick up your phone to call out, the voltage on the phone line is low and it works normally. When you get an incoming call, a high voltage is sent to ring the phone. Because of the partial short, the phone company's equipment thinks you've answered the call as soon as the ringing starts. But you haven't picked up the phone, so the phone company's equipment thinks you've hung up and disconnects the call. The result is that short burst of ringing.

Disconnect the cordless phone base unit from the line and try another phone. If you still have the trouble this confirms the line is at fault. You'll need to contact your phone service provider for service. If it's in the outside wiring, they're responsible for repair. If the problem is in your home wiring, you may need to pay them unless you have a wiring maintenance plan.

If the problem goes away when the cordless base is disconnected, then it's time for a new phone.

Uniden wall-mounted cordless phone unusable since DSL installed

This happened because there are too many phones sharing the same line with no power amplifiers.
Your phone line is self powered by a small current generated by the phone company (that's why old, wired phones don't need a separate power connection to ring or make calls, it's enough to just plug them in). Each phone you connect to the same line acts as a resistor and drains some of this current. Eventually not enough power is left to carry the signal.
The phone company technician can fix this by installing power amplifiers.
In any case, I would test this theory by unhooking all other phones and checking the cordless ones on their own.
If they work fine, call back the phone company and ask for a "real" repair person..

How to refuse call and have answering machine pickup

dont answer.

your machine should have a setting that will allow you to set the number of rings before the answering machine picks up the phone. Default is often set at 3 or 5 rings.

look throughout your menu system for the setting.

Disconnects incoming calls after one ring

The problem may be a short on your line. (Have the local Teleco check your line.) If you have other phones, you may want to check them for dial tone(DT) when this happens. If you have no DT, your cordless may be the problem...unplug, and let charge overnight. If problem continues, replace the battery in cordless, or discontinue use.
