Uniden Phone 5.8 Ghz- I hear a spanish radio station

While I am on my phone, I hear a spanish radio station in the background, constantly. The people I am talking to usually cannot hear it, only I can. However, today the person I was talking to was asking "what is that music?" He could hear it when his volume was up high. Any suggestions? My set is no where near a radio or any other electronic device other than my PC.

Since you didn't give the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system I can only suggest you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

Its says check phone dial tone....just background calls in....or out

Unplug your Phone and plug in a regular un-powered phone. If it rings your cordless base station is bad and you will need a new one if it does not ring then there is a problem on your phone line and you need to contact your phone company. Note, the phone company will charge you for repairs inside your house.

E4 Error is showing on Uniden 5.8 GHz expandable phone. Power may have been disconnected. An ideas on a solution?

The handset displaying the message may have lost its memory of the base station. Take it over to the base station and reset it as when you first associated the handset with the base.

I hope this helps.

Any time I use the phone I hear some guy speak in spanish in the background. The person I am calling can hear also hear this. It happens with every call. How can I get rid of this?

Does it sound like a spanish-language radio station, or like someone else's phone call?

It could be radio interference in your phone, in which case you'll want to install an RF choke on the phone cord, using something like this item from Radio Shack:

It could also be crosstalk from a neighbor's phone, in which case you'll want to call your phone company's repair number. That number should be on your phone bill, and they can walk you through troubleshooting steps.

Uniden phone constantly ringing

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

Phone won't hang up

I solved this exactly problem by doing this:
1) unplug base station from phone line
2) unplug base station from power cube
3) open each phone and disconnect battery (do not replace phone in charger; just let it sit)
4) wait 30 minutes (per instructions from Uniden)
5) reconnect batteries in phone sets
6) reconnect power cube to base station
7) reconnect base station to phone line
8) test: make a call. Hang up. Wait one minute. Pick up line and see if you get a dial tone.
(Basically you're "rebooting" the system. You don't know where the fault lies, so you power down every component to make sure you get it. The '30 minutes' is longer than I'm used to, but after being on hold with Uniden tech support for 20 minutes and finally getting through, the instructions from them were very clear: AT LEAST 30 minutes. OK! I did it - and it worked!)

Uniden 5.8 GHz Digital cordless w 3 handsets interference background noise no matter where we are in the house or which handset we use

This is possibly caused by the internet connection.
Try new ADSL filter.
You need one each per device.

Cross talk

The easy way is to buy a radio surpressor. You can find them at Radio Shack, I think. Unless you live very close to a radio station you probably have a ground on your phone line. this can happen either inside or outside you business. Also if you are using a long mounting cord, 25' and up this can act as an antenna and cause radio pick up. I would try to detremine if your problem is on the phone company lines or inside your business.
the question said cross talk, are you hearing the other lines while you are on one line? If so you may have inproper wiring inside your building. Multiple phone lines must be on twisted wire. If two lines are parrell for any measurable distance they will bleed over to the other line.
