Question about Dual Maxus 5.8GHz Handset Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Wired base unit

The remote base works fine...charges hand-set appropriately.  However, the wired/land-line base seems to have a short in it or something.   It no longer charges the hand-set, and the light blinks all the time.  Sometimes if I bounce the hand-set up and down a few times, it seems to make a connection and occasionally will charge.  Is it time to buy a new phone?  The Radio Shack guy was totally uncooperative and offered no solution.  I bought the phone in January of 2005.  Should I just replace it?

Try a simple thing, replace the phone cord that goes from the wall to the phone with a new one. That'll make sure you still have a good phone connection. Cords cheap.

You have a power transformer that plugs into the wall.  See if you can find a replacement at a surplus store or Radio Shack (a different store)  Take the old one with you so you can match the voltage/ampere and connector.  If its new it will work fine.  If its surplus, it's hit or miss.

If that does not work  or you don't want to bother buy as new phone.  With the constant upgrades you might find one with better features you'll like more.  Who knows.

Good luck

    OK...try cleaning the contacts on both the phone and the charger. And now that I realize you bought the phone in 2005, replace the rechargeable batteries in the handset.

My uniden phone is not working. All hand sets say Check Tel Line. Will not make or receive calls. Will a dead battery in one handset make all handsets malfunction? Are batteries available?


batteries are available from e-bay
one dead battery will not affect any others
all hand sets make calls and receive calls through the base unit that is connected to the landline
base unit is connected to the landline and operates any hand set that is picked up
make sure all handsets have the end call button pressed as one not pressed after use may keep a line open
call your provider to check the land line to your premises
borrow a neighbours phone and plug it into the socket and see it you get a line on their phone

Is there a antenna booster for a Panasonic phone system with 1 base unit and the rest cordless hand sets


That is an odd set up. The law requires only a certain amount of power to be used for phones. To much RF close to the body is danngerous. If you want you can get a land line phone and remote phones seperately. But that is alot of phones.

I replaced my desk phone with a wireless and I lost dialtone on all the phones


Are you saying you have a wireless desk cell telephone? Or is this a regular land line telephone with a wireless hand piece? If it is a cell phone with no dial tone, you must see your service provider - this is HIGHLY unusual. If this is a land line telephone with a wireless hand piece - be aware that the dial tone cones from your base transmitter, where ever it is located, (Normally this base should be withing 300 feet of the hand piece) and that base unit MUST be plugged into an active telephone outlet. In the USA, the standard jack is an RJ 11. I suggest you take your old telephone and plug into the outlet where your new base unit is located. Do you get a dial tone? (proves the line is good) Check all wiring - same type of contacts (for your country)? Still no dial tone? Take it back to the store and get them to demonstrate its operation for you - does it work at their store? ... if not, get a new telephone or an adjustment.

The base unit will not charge hand sets . I have cleaned the contacts on base unit as recommended. Please note the remote unit charges both handsets.


The problem is in the remote charger or batteries in each phone is the issue. If you are handy with a meter, "set it to DC volts" press down on the charging tabs, you should have at least 3.6V to 12V if it reads 0 the remote charger is defective.

This problem can be caused by the following, A bad battery, (which you say you are all new). A full base memory and a Faulty main base unit
This main base unit can only expand to four handsets and no more. If the base unit has been reset then the assigned numbers for each handset would begin with " handset 1" if they show any other number when reset then it would not have been reset..To re-set main base you will have to
De-Register All Handsets
Unplug the power supply from the base unit then Remove all handsets from the charge cradles and base then Press and hold the PAGE button on the base.
Plug in the power supply again while pressing the PAGE button, Continue pressing PAGE until the IN USE and CHARGING indicators are lit. (this could take up to 10 seconds)
Release the PAGE button All Handsets will display "enter base id".
If this does not solve your problem then you will have to replace the main base

Is this just an expansion.do i need a base unit


I 'mixed' two sets by not pluggin the 2nd base unit into the phone line, thus treating it as just another remote.  Then I registered each remote into the one base unit and they all work fine.  Try re-registering the entire set of phones to one base unit.  Make sure it's a base unit that supports that many remotes.

Double check that the telephone cord is firmly plugged into the back of the cordless phone base, the wall outlet, the outlet where the telephone modem is and at the L1/L2 jack on the back of the telephone modem. Your phone is not getting the dial tone line voltage from the telephone modem to the cordless base. There might be a short in the wiring. (It is unclear as to whether you are setting an old phone into this new base or swapping out and using another base with the old phone. Irregardless, the problem would seem to be not in the phone but ratther narrowed to the cord between phone modem and phone base. That is a very good reason to check how firmly the cord is plugged in.
