Handset won't charge

I bought the two handset cordless several months ago and set up the second handset.  It worked fine.  I, then, disconnected it and did not use if for several months.  Now I'm trying to get it up and going.  The charge/in use light does not come on.  When I hit 'Talk', the word Talk comes up followed immediately by Unavailable.  I've moved the handset right next to the baseo....same prob.  I've set the second handset on the base for over 20 seconds as per instructions.....still doesn't charge/

Re: handset won't charge


Not using the handset for several months  would have allowed corrosion to develop on the charging contacts.  You have to use cotton buds and a strong solvent to clean the charging contacts.

Alternately, it may be that the battery is already dead and no longer would accept a charge.  These are plug-in types and are replaceable.  Incidentally, it is also possible that the corrosion developed on the battery connector contacts themselves.

Indication of corrosion would be dull colored contacts with bits of flakes - clean to make shiny again; the connector corrosion would be wet powdery greenish substance on the wires or connector from the battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Good morning! I just a bout 5 month ago this phone with its 5 handsets. In the last month 2 of the handsets dead, they are not operating ant are not charging. What I have to do. Thank

If they are not charging the batteries they will need to be replaced, but just to be sure! take a good working battery and switch out for the bad one and if the phone charges, the batteries are no good and proves the phone is good. Now! since your phones are a few months old you may still have warranty, I would encourage you to go back where they were bought to remedy the problem.

Uniden DECT 1580-4WXT waterproof unit appears to be dead - will not charge or register with base unit. Just bought system at Sam's Club 2 days ago. The other 3 units work fine.

This phone uses inductive charging because of the waterproof feature. I suggest that you remove the
battery cover from the back of the handset, unplug
the battery, and then plug it back into the handset.
This solution worked for me.

I am having problem with my cordless phone.

Another tip is to remove the battery from the handset for at least 5 seconds. You might want to get a voltage meter and check the voltage on that new battery - maybe it isn't charging properly.

You can connect up to 4 cordless sets (Operating manuals, page 21, states 3 but they really mean 3 in addition to the one packed with the base, for a total of 4). I've head four connected for over 5 years now and they work fine. In your case, try disconnecting the battery of the cordless for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect. You may also want to disconnect the power cable from the base unit for a half minute or so. I found this method to be equivalent to a cold boot, and quite effective in getting all phones to work again after a storm or power outage.

2nd handset doesn't work

Hi Rayfatz,
I think your problem might be that the second handset is not registered with the base station. Take the second phone out of it's cradle and place it in the base station (where the first phone is), and leave it there for 20 seconds. Place it back in it's own cradle, and it should start working. Hope this helps! Hal
