Uniden TRU888 5.8 Digital Phone Display no longer lights up

The Uniden handset works fine (CID, date/time, etc.) but the main phone does not show a display at all. The phone itself works and when I push "speaker" I get a brief backlight but no words. I just purchcased this phone less than a month ago. The warranty repair information states it's a refurbished product.

I purchased this model phone as a refurb item and also had display blanking out issues. Mine related to a problem with the battery, which new batteries fixed. Try swapping the batteries between handsets and see if the fault moves to the other handset, which will prove if it is a battery problem. Otherwise, it would seem to be an internal fault in that handset. Try and arrange repair/replacement from the seller.

Uniden cordless phone caller id quit working


Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists
Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information.
Caller ID list



Redial list



When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the

CID list.
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.


Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.

How to set time on phone


Which Uniden DECT 6.0 phone do you have? There are many.

Some Uniden phones will set the time automatically if you have Caller ID from your telephone provider.

To manually set the time on the Uniden D2280, press Menu on the handset when it is in standby. (It's the center of the wheel with the up/down arrows.) Go down to the Date and Time submenu and press Menu again. Enter the time and day using the keypad (press CID to advance past a character without changing it). Then select AM or PM. Press Menu to save. Press the phonebook key to go back to a previous menu or End to exit.

For the DECT1580, you set the date and time similarly. However, you start by pressing Menu on the base when the phone and handsets are not in use. (Have the handsets within range of the base.) Use the up/down arrows to select the day of the week. Then use the keypad to enter the current time.

The manuals for most Uniden DECT phones are here: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . They are listed in numerical and alphabetical order. Ignore the number after the dash in the model number, that merely indicates the number of handsets in the original package. One manual will cover units sold with different number of handsets.

I hope this helps.

Ge model 27909 answering machine gives wrong time on playback


I found it on the manual, it was in programming section!

Date/Time
NOTE: Time set on handset will be transferred to the base unit automatically.
1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the menu button to go to the main menu and use cid/vol (3or4) button to scroll to Date/Time.
3. Press menu button to enter the menu. Year 2006 shows in the display.
4. Use the touch-tone pad to enter the last two digits of the current year (range: 00 to 99).
5. Press menu button to save the year setting and proceed to date setting.
6. Date 01/01 shows in the display. Use the touch-tone pad to enter two digits for current month and day respectively.
7. Press menu button to save the month/date setting and proceed to time setting.
8. Time 12:01p shows in the display. Use the touch-tone pad to enter four digits for current time and use cid/vol (3or4) button to toggle between "p" (pm) and "a" (am).
9. Press menu button to save the setting. Saved shows in the display.
NOTE: If you subscribe to Caller ID service, the current date/time is set automatically when you receive your first CID record and will override manually set date/time.

The flashing CL means the clock on the phone has not been set. You can try to set the clock using the Menu option on the handset, but the easier option is to simply call the phone from another number. When this happens, the base of the phone gets a CID time and date stamp from the time calling, and the clock is set. You'll notice that the CL is no longer flashing after the phone has received the call. You don't even have to answer the phone- just let it ring once or twice and you're all aces.

Registering a new phone


With a little searching I was not able to confirm this phone could handle more than one cordless handset. Are you replacing a defective handset or trying to add a second. If adding, do you know if it can handle the second unit (is it advertised on the box, in the user guide, etc?) If replacing, you most likely have to de-register the old handset on the base unit before you can register a new one. If you are adding, try de-registering the working handset anyway and registering the new one. If the new one registers and you cannot re-register the once working phone you will know either the system cannot handle two phones or (if the new one will not register but you can again re-register the original) that the new handset has a problem and should be returned.
