SOURCE: Uniden 5.8GHz can't turn ringer on

You should be able to go to the handset and do that.  Hit the button above the caller id until you can hear it.

Try putting the handset in the main unit and see if it will fully charge. It may very well be a problem with the individual charger, not the handset batteries.

How do I turn the ringer on


It depends on the model and why the ringer is off. All of these solutions require the phone to be in standby mode. If your phone has the Uniden Do Not Disturb feature enabled, you need to press the DND button on the base. If your Uniden phone has a Silent Mode, press and hold the # key (below 9) on one of the handsets. You'll need to hold the key for ~5 seconds. These options will toggle on the feature when it is off.

If the ringer is merely muted, press the volume up key.

I hope this helps. If you post a comment with the model of your phone, I can tell which feature is offered for that phone.

I have Uniden DCX700 phone- how do I turn the ringer on and off?


The DCX700 is an expansion handset for several different Uniden phones (DCT746, DCT748). To change the volume of the ringer, press the Vol + or Vol - button with the unit in Standby (not making calls). There are three ringer volumes: Off, Low and High. Pressing the Volume buttons will let you cycle through the list. The volume buttons are to the left of Talk below the LCD screen.

You can temporarily mute the ringer by pressing Mute while the phone is ringing.

The manual for the DCT746 is here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DCT746Mom.pdf . All Uniden cordless phone manuals are available in numerical and alphabetical order here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl . The manual for the DCX700 handset (with registration information) is here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DCX700om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have an Uniden power max 5.8 GHz home phone but don't have the owners manual the handset won't ring and a icon of the bell on the screen is X ed out. i can't seem to figure out how to turn the ringer...


Sounds like the handset needs to be re-associated with the base unit.

If the manual for the Uniden PowerMax manual on the FixYa website for manuals is not the correct manual, go to the Uniden website and locate the manual there.

My uniden powermax 5.8 ghz set itself to Do Not Disturb.


The do not disturb feature (DND) allows you to mute the ringer, the base, and any registered handsets at the same time. The phone must be in standby mode. Press and hold do not disturb on the base. You will hear a confirmation tone, and the DND LED illuminates. To cancel the DND feature, press do not disturb again. You can also mute the ringer tone while the phone is ringing by pressing do not disturb on the base.
Activating the DND while the answering system is off will turn the answering system on automatically. The answering system setting will reset to the original setting when you cancel the DND.
If you press answer on/off when the DND and the answering system is on, both of the DND and the answering system will turn off.
To mute the ringer tone temporarily for each handset or the base, when the phone is ringing, press the MUTE soft key on the handset or the base. The ringer tone will return to the previous setting starting with the next incoming call.
