My base unit unit keeps flashing 8-88, and the hand sets all say searching


If there is an error code with an E followed by a number or "88" displays/flashes it would be an internal issue in the base unit. Uniden does offer a limited 1 year warranty (Covers Manufacture Defects ONLY, if caused by a power surge or power outage or any other type of damage that is not a Manufacture Defect this is not covered under warranty) off the proof of purchase. The proof of purchase is required for warranty service.

Uniden base flashing 88 8


I just got off of the phone with Uniden for the same issue with my D1680-4. The alternating "8" - "88" code is an indication that the base is dead. They will be sending me a new base (and 2 handsets). During the call I learned that if you do not have a receipt, Uniden warrants their phones for up to 15 months. The advertised 12 months, plus 3 months for the product to get from manufacturing, through distribution channel and finally sale to the consumer.

Moving a Message to Another Mailbox

You can move a message from one mailbox to another. The message is saved a a new message in the mailbox to which it's been added and is deleted from the original mailbox.

1 While the message you want to move is playing press "setup". The system beeps and stops playback, the Message Window displays CP (for copy) and the Mailbox lights flash.

2 Press the MBox button where you want to move the message. The system resumes playing messages in the original mailbox.
