Unplug the power cord of the phone and plug it in another electric outlet.

Hi I have a Cordless Uniden Dect 6.0 and also another one that sitts on a bitter base. My problem is this: the cordless with the smaller base shows the message 'Searching' and wont do anything,...

Welcome to FixYa.

Reset the units/set up by doing the following:
  • Turn OFF all the HANDSETS.
  • Remove the batteries of the HANDSETS.
  • Unplug the power source of the BASE.
  • Unplug the phone line of the BASE.
  • Let it stay that way for 30 mins.
  • Insert the battery again of the HANDSETS, make sure it is charged properly.
  • Plug back the power source of the BASE.
  • Plug back the phone line to the BASE.
  • Register any handset that is unregistered (refer to manual).

Keep me posted.

Handset won't charge


Not using the handset for several months  would have allowed corrosion to develop on the charging contacts.  You have to use cotton buds and a strong solvent to clean the charging contacts.

Alternately, it may be that the battery is already dead and no longer would accept a charge.  These are plug-in types and are replaceable.  Incidentally, it is also possible that the corrosion developed on the battery connector contacts themselves.

Indication of corrosion would be dull colored contacts with bits of flakes - clean to make shiny again; the connector corrosion would be wet powdery greenish substance on the wires or connector from the battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My GE 27909EE1 cordless phone's batteries will not stay charged. I've replaced batteries 3 times in 6 months since I bought the phone. Help!

Well, depending on how much you use the phone will determine how long the battery stays charged. However if you not using it enough to run the battery down, my first guess is that the "charger" is the culprit and not the battery. If you have a seperate charge cradle perhaps try to charge it in there.

Phone holds charge from 12-55 min. and then goes dead

Your handset or charger has gone bad (provided you installed rechargable batteries), or both. The previous user may have installed alkaline batteries (is their a white powdery residue in the the charge compartment?), and that can ruin the charge circuit. Either way, you probably need to contact repair. You can go to

This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.
