Re: Need the telephone power supply for the 1480

Go to wall mart they hav universal adapters with a bunch of different plug ends and a switch to set the right voltage to your unit.When you get it you have to find the voltage of the phone,it would probabally be on the bottum of the phone base probabally between 7 and 14 volts.This adapter is probabally cheaper then the original and you can use it after you get a new phone for future pet problems.good luck Ps you can also get them at radio shack if you dont like walmart and please leave feed back

How do i get volume on my binatone 3325 handset

Press C/8 to unmute the microphone.

complete installations
Plug the power adapter
& line cord
into the base station.
Plug the power adapter into a 230Vac, 50Hz
mains socket, the other end of the line cord
into your telephone line socket.
Warning: Always use the line cord provided in the box.
Other line cords may not be compatible and may not work.
Warning: Only use the power adapter supplied.
Others will result in non-compliance with the safety
specification EN60950, and will invalidate any approval
given with this apparatus.
Warning: The Base unit needs mains power for
normal operation, not just for charging the handset batteries.
Installing and charging the batteries
Slide open the battery compartment cover.
Place the 2 batteries with the correct polarity,
as shown.
Slide the battery compartment cover back.
Put the handset on the base and charge for
15 hours before first time use. The handset
beeps when charging starts.
Warning: Only use the AAA size NiMH rechargeable
If you have a Broadband Line
If you connect your telephone to a line with a broadband connection, you will need to
insert a micro-filter between the telephone and the telephone line, otherwise you may
get interference between the telephone and the broadband, which could cause
In a home with broadband, every telephone must have a micro-filter connected, not just the one at the telephone point that your modem is connected to.
If you need more broadband micro-filters, contact your broadband provider.

Connection and Conditions for use:
You can connect your phone to a direct exchange line (DEL) on a local
exchange with its own phone number; to an extension socket
connected to a DEL; or to an extension on an approved compatible
PBX. Do not connect as an extension to a payphone.
The ringer equivalence number (REN) of all equipment (phones, fax
machines, modems, etc.) connected to an exchange line must not add
up to more than 4, otherwise one or more of them may not ring and/or
answer calls correctly. This phone has a REN of 1, and most other
telephones have a REN of 1 unless marked otherwise.
Handset - Base Connection
1) When purchased, all handsets are already registered to the base unit
and should link to it when they are all powered up.
2) To use your cordless handset and base unit together, you must be
able to establish a radio link between them. The signal between the
handset and the base is in accordance with the normal standards for
a DECT phone: Maximum range up to 300 metres outdoors or 50
metres indoors. Be aware that:
> Any large metal object, such as a refrigerator, mirror or filing cabinet,
between the handset and the base unit may block the radio signal.
> Other solid structures, like walls, may reduce the signal strength.
> Other electrical equipment may cause interference and/or affect the range.
3) Do not place close to another telephone, a TV or audio equipment - it
may cause interference.
4) Out of Range warning. If you hear a warning tone during a call,
and/or the sound in the earpiece becomes faint or distorted, you may be
going out of range of the base unit, so move nearer to the base unit
within 20 seconds, otherwise the call may be cut off.

Avaya Partner 18D Corded Phone...

Yes. Call forwarding is a feature provided by your telephone company, not a feature of any phone, and the procedure is dependent on the company. For some telephone companies, for example, you forward a call by dialing *72, waiting for a second dial tone, then dial the number to which you want calls forwarded. Please contact your telephone company for their exact procedure.

Uniden 5.8ghz cordless W/2handsets has no dial tone cannot call out or recieve calls

There can be a lot of different things that could cause this. The first thing I would do is disconnect the telephone cord from the Uniden phon eand connect it to another telephone and see if you get a dial tone from it. If you do then we know that the telephon eline and the cord are OK so we go back to the Uniden telephone. Next, does the unit light up when you plug it in? are you sure that the telephone is getting AC Power? Are the displays on the handsets working? Does the handset display show "Handset XX" or does it show "Searching"? If it shows "Handset XX" then the base unit is getting power, if not the base unit may not be getting power.
If the base unit is getting power and the handsets are working and the power cord and jack were proven good by conecting another phone to them, then you would need to call uniden Customer Service for further trouble shooting or repair/replacement. the number is 1-800-297-1026
