How do i turn off the silent mode on a uniden phone, ive held down the # sign and nothings happening

Silent Mode
You can silence the ringers on the base and all handsets for a specific period of time; the answering system answers any incoming calls without playing anything through the speaker.
With the phone in standby, press and hold # on any handset. The phone prompts you to select the number of hours (1 - 9 or Always On) that you want it to stay in silent mode.
To confirm, press # or just wait about 5 seconds. The phone turns on the answering system and displays Silent Mode On on each handset.After the selected number of hours, the phone automatically exits silent mode. To exit silent mode manually, press and hold # again.
If the phone is in silent mode and you turn off the answering system, the phone exits silent mode.
Multihandset Features To use the features in this section, you need at least 2 handsets.
Your base supports a total of 12 cordless handsets: the one that came with the base and up to 11 DCX160 accessory handsets.You must register accessory handsets to the base before using them. (Handsets that came packaged with the base are already registered.)Handsets that aren't registered display a Not Registered message. For registration instructions, see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.If a handset was ever registered to a base, you must reset it before it can register to a new base; see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.Conference Calling
When an outside call comes in, two handsets can join in a conference call with the outside caller.
To join a call that's already in progress, just press Talk/flash or SpeSpeSpeaker.To leave the conference call, hang up normally; the other handset remains connected to the call.

Uniden Cordless Phone Model DSS7855. frequently fails to connect to an incoming call, with 'out of range' indication. The phone is less than 1 meter from the base station.

The handset/base keeps a record of who it’s registered to. The base also keeps a record of how many handsets are registered to it.

Using the de-register function on the handset deletes the handset from the base (decrements the count) and deletes the base info from the handset. All this requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.

To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the ‘end’ button and the ‘#’ button simultaneously until the phone beeps. It will now be de-registered from the base.

However, the base will still have this handset in it’s record.

To de-register all handsets from the base, remove power and the base handset. Press and hold the ‘flash/find hs’ button while applying power. Wait for the beep and release the button. The charge light will now flash. Sit any handset in the cradle. When the flashing stops, all handsets are inhibited from connecting.

However, the handset still appears to be connected to the base unit. Pressing talk will give an ‘Unable to connect’ message. To re-register the handsets to the base, you have to de-register the handset first with the two button method.

Of interest, pressing ‘*’ and ‘#’ on the handset while reconnecting the battery is suppose to reset the handset. Doing the same on the base unit puts you in some sort of diagnostic mode. Press speaker to exit.

GE 28851 base handset #1, will not save ringer tone or volumn I selected. Brand New.

As it turns out, the primary base handset did save the newer selected ring tone and volume level setting.

However, the base maintains its own ring tone and volume level setting from factory.

Therefore, the base will present its own settings along with the handset setting during an incoming call.

So, one has to lower the volume of the base (in non-talk mode). The base should display in window: LO.

Then, only the ring tone and volume level selected for handset will be presented during an incomiong call.

How did I do????

Problems with C110 & A110 Vtech Mirage Dect Home phones

Have strangely got the same problem - about the same time you posted this, but intermitently. I have isolated that the problem is in fact the handset itself, not the base unit. I eliminated a problem with the base unit by a) registering a different DECT phone to it. - The base still works fine. b) Leaving the handset switched off for an hour or so (press and hold the "OK" botton to switch off / on); then whislt it was working, registering the handset to a different base (Base 2). And guess what, after 30 mins the "BASE 2" message started flashing on the faulty handset.
So, if you already have an A110 extension handset, make sure it's also registered to base 1 and maybe try to get just the handset repaired via VTECH. (or just buy a new handset if they are available).

Uniden 5.8Ghz phone.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.

No ring on handset

It may have lost the link to the base unit. Make a note of all the personal details, stored number, etc., then reset the handset. Do this by pressing the spanner button until the display changes, then press and hold the 'R' (delete) button until the handset resets. You'll have to set it up again, but at least it will link.
Spanner then 1 for ringtone, CID for volume.
Spanner then 2 for keypad bleep, 1=off, 2=on.
both cases press spanner to confirm changes.
