Uniden BC70XLT - Steady tone on power on

Uniden BC70XLT - Just got it used, reportedly works well, just needs battery pack. No battery in now, plugged into wall and turned on and got steady tone, no change with volume control, screen blank. Does it simply need a battery pack installed or is it dead?

CANT GET PHONE TO HAVE A DIAL TONE OR HEAR THEM


Is the base unit plugged in and have a light to tell you it is powered? Is the battery in the handset in there and connected? Little switch on the phone has to be set to 'pulse'.

It needs to charge for 12 hours before use.

Lost phone manual, uniden d2997


I have a standard trouble-shooting routine for cordless phones. 1) Remove the battery from the handset (from all handsets for a multi-handset version). Then unplug the power cord from the base and wall outlet and also remove the telephone cord. Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power and phone line cords. Reconnect the battery (ies) for the handsets. Make sure this connection is tight. Then make sure that the battery is fully charged (15 hours before first use) and register the handsets if needed. This is done by putting each handset onto the base in order for the D2997. Wait about 30 seconds for each one until you see the Handset Registered message. Make sure that you are within range of the base.

Next try a different telephone (RJ-11) phone cord between the base and the wall jack. Also check if the power adapter for the base is warm. For the next set of tests, I like to use an old corded telephone. Using a different phone, check if you get dial tone at the jack. If there is a dial tone, then the problem is with the Uniden phone. If the above trouble-shooting didn't help, then contact Uniden. These phones aren't meant to be user serviced.

If you do not have a normal dial tone, try another jack on the same telephone line. If there is dial tone at another jack, then you have a problem with the first jack. Otherwise find where your telephone service comes in. If you have a fairly new service, you'll find an RJ-11 jack. Plug your test phone into the jack and test for dial tone. If you have no dial tone or can't test your line, call your phone company. They will fix any outside problem for free. If it is an inside wiring problem, look at the visible wiring and determine if the wires are damaged. Open the jack (if only one is bad) and check for loose wires. There are two types of jacks. One secures the terminal wires with screws and the other uses a punch-down jack. For the screw type, strip additional insulation from the conductors, if needed, and then reconnect them. For the punch-down type, you will need the punch-down tool. It is available at many hardware stores in the wiring section. Use this diagram to check your jack wiring: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx . If you can't see an obvious problem with the wiring, you may want a professional to deal with the wiring in the wall. Your telephone company will do this for a fee.
Uniden has the manuals for their DECT phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The manual for the D2997 is available here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D2997om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Regarding connecting old and new phone of same brand


1. Remove battery
2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it's workable)
3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.
4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok
5. Remove battery (yes again)
6. Reinsert battery (this time there's no need to hold down any buttons)
7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)
8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

My GE phone 27958 just stopped working. I originally thought the cordless handset needed a new battery, but upon replacement that did not help. I found that the base which is plugged into the land line...


check power ?
Is Ac - DC converter pack plugged into power point ?
Is the DC plug plugged into the phone ?
does power point work ?

Check correct dc voltage being produced from the AC - DC power pack converter ?

Isolate other phones on other extensinos to see if uniden is cause or not of no dial tone.
You may have another phone off hook and phone line has timed out .

Just bought phone no dial tone i move the setting to pulse


First thing to try is another phone in the wall jack if it doesn't work either you need to call your phone company. If the other phone works, make sure that the telephone is getting power from the AC electrical outlet. Try swapping the telephone cord with another cord. and lastly, unplug the battery from teh handset and plug it back in untill you feel it click into place. Sometimes the new battery connections are pretty tight and may not really be connected even though it looks like it is plugged all the way in.

Uniden cordless phone


Hello, While I cannot locate that model in any Uniden database (you might want to find the literature), It sounds as if the handset may be communicating with its base, but you have lost the dial tone. Did any storms pass through recently? Here is what you do. Go to your base and push the locator button on your base station to call the handset via the page/locator function. If it rings the handset and you can answer it okay then you know your handset is working well and communicating with your base (the radio portion is working correctly). If it does not ring your handset then your Uniden is definately bad (radio wise). But, I am going to guess that it is okay but you still cannot communicate with the outside world and dial out to get dial tone or get an incoming call. Okay, so we have a dial tone problem. The next step is to see if dial tone is getting to your base. So you will need to take another good telephone, preferably a handy "line powered" telephone (no batteries or ac adapter needed) you can use in a power failure emergency. Take that good phone and plug it into the phone cord you unplug from your Uniden base. If you get dial tone, then your uniden does need repair. If it does not get dial tone, then you have a bad cord, jack or something in your phone wiring. If thats the case, change cords, look for corrosion, dirt or bent pins in the jack on the wall. My guess is that your Uniden has gone bad, likely from a slight surge on the phone line. If you do need your Uniden repaired you can contact Uniden they are at http://www.uniden.com/repair/service.cfm , however I don't believe they offer repair, but offer to sell you a replacement. Or you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com where you can get your Uniden Cordless unit repaired, not exchanged. Good Luck, CG

Handset doesnt work


Do you have another phone (cell phone) you can use to make a test call to yourself? If you can answer a call and the Uniden transmits voice OK, then it is probably the speaker and may just be a bad solder connection. If the handset does not transmit or receive I seriously doubt you have a bad microphone AND a bad speaker, you'd be looking at something more serious.

CORDLESS PHONE - NO DIAL TONE


Plug out the power from the main charger and then plug in again. It needs to reset after they have gone dead. Immediately you can lift one of them off the charger and you will hear your dial tone.
