Can't turn the ringer on to notify when a call is coming in.

Without the model, I can't be sure of the method you need to enable the ringer.

Some Uniden phones toggle on a Silent Mode if you press and hold the # key (below 9 on the keypad) for 3+ seconds on one handset. When turned on, the phone will ask how long (1-9 hours) you want the ringer to be disabled for the handset. If no key is pressed within 5 seconds, the handset will not ring until the # key is pressed and held again.

Other Uniden phones have a Do Not Disturb mode. This disables the ringer on all handsets.To disable this, press and hold the DND button on the base. The answering system will be turned on if it isn't already on when DND is in use.

The other options to mute the ringer include the volume down on the handset when the phone is in standby. Some phones will also adjust the ring tone volume in the menu.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your phone for additional information.

Why doesn't phone ring?

Three possibles:
1) Ringer is broken
2) Ringer is turned off
3) No one is calling.
I'd bet on #2. If you explore your phones functions, you'll probably find under SOUNDS, RINGER, ENABLE/DISABLE or something similar.

Phone not ringing on my cordless KX-TG6461 EX

Are your batteries in good condition in the cordless.
Also check if the ringer is disabled on the phone.

I have a Meridian M5316 and the there is an existing voicemail on the phone how do I change the voicemail without knowing the current password?

Your provider will have to reset it for you. Phone them and ask for a reset. They may charge you a dollar or so. But that is the only way

Very low volume on 'handsfree' option; whereas the vol. for the line button can be quite loud


The Volume function of that phone is controlled by the up down vol button on the phone. the only time it does anything is when that function is being used. ie. when you have the handset in hand the vol buttons control the handset volume, while the phone is ringing the buttons control the ringer volume etc.

No ringer


I would suggest unplugging the phone from power and the phone jack for about 5 minutes and see if that will clear the DND LED.

Here is a link to the manual.

Please refer to Pg 38 specifically for disabling DND.

Here are some suggestions Volume You may adjust the ringer, speaker, handset and headset volumes independently with the VOLUME ^ and VOLUME v buttons. Your telephone comes with predetermined settings which can be adjusted to individual taste. You will hear an error tone when the maximum or minimum volume level is reached. During volume adjustment, a ?dashed line? icon shows in the display. Adjusting the Ringer Volume Press the VOLUME ^ or v button while in on-hook mode. And/or 1 Selecting a Ringer Tone You may select the ringer tone for each line independently. You may choose to turn the ringer off or select one of the four available ringer tones for each line. 1. Press STORE. The red indicator blinks indicating unit is in Store Mode. 2. Use the number pad to select a ringer tone 0 through 4 (selecting 0 turns the ringer off). 3. Press STORE and then press the desired line button. NOTE: The line indicators continue to flash for incoming calls even with the ringer disabled. You may not select the same ringer tone for both lines. Checking the Ringer Settings Check the setting or each ringer (on, off) by pressing STORE, followed by LINE 1 or LINE 2 button when the phone is on the hook. The ringer setting of the selected line will be shown in the display. If there are any further questions or comments please post here. Please rate this solution through fix-it. Thank you.
