Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

My GE cordless DECT 6.0 says "Searching..." on the display. While it's doing this I can't get a dial tone or use the phone. Can you explain why it is doing this and how I can prevent this from happening?

I not have manual for Uniden dect 6 cordless phone on my phone I can't get any dial tone,I think I pressed a button on the phone either mute, intercom or redial, how to reset phone


If you have no dial tone the problem is most likely the base station has failed, nothing you can do will kill the dial tone (no button you pushed etc.) except a failed base station.

Both of my GE Dect 6.0 cordless phones, model #5-2811 say out of range or searching...out of the blue. How do I get my dial tone back???


Unlplug the power to all lines for 5 minutes, while waiting disconnect, inspect and clean the phone cords. Insert the phone cords back into the devices after 5 minutes of ALL devices being unpowered plug them all back in, Set each of the phones on the main receiver to "sync" them.
