The broadcast channel can't be changed according to the units instructions some other electronic device is causing the interference you may have to move the base unit. A PDF file of instructions are here
Sennheiser remote/cordless headphones are ordinarily very dependable. From your description it sounds like the problem is with the base unit. Try power-cycling the base with the headphones sitting on the charger cradle (red charging light must be on when you do this) - Unplug the power cord for about 10 or 15 seconds then plug it back in. This action should cause the base and the headset to go through the automatic pairing process. Once the base is paired with the headset, it should begin working again. Check also the channel pushbutton on one of the headphones. Hope this helps!!
If you have multiple phones for your base and they both have a lot of static, I suggest you check your base. Either it's transmitting poorly or it's in an area with too much interference to the signal from base to sets. Can u give more detail as to what you tried so far and what is around your base (like electrical appliances, wiring etc...?
is there a channel selection button/. if so try selecting different channel as lots of electrical equipment can interfere with walkabout phones as can hearing aids. have u asked neighbors if they are having same problem? might be a fault on line? u can check to see if there is a fault on the line by going to bt faultfinder and typing in your phone number and they check it for u for free. hope some of this helps?
Move it away from other electronics, TV's microwave ovens, etc. Try it in a different part of the house to see if the static is location sensitive. It must be getting interference from someplace. The manual should describe a procedure for changing channels although that may not solve the problem unless the "static" is an interfering RF signal. If this is a remote handset problem, it may be too far from the base or the signal is obstructed by something. 5.8GHz does not have the range of the lower frequency phones.
press and hold CID button for 5 seconds to access the phone's menu.
Then change ringer type and volume.
For the phone breaking up, try different channels of that phone to receive better frequency. The phone with the weird battery may have faulty or bad battery or charger contacts that need to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and need to be resoldered.
question is are you running a pc and router/ modem on the same land line
if so you will need the line filters to the phone base
the computer data is transferred by the same land line and there is every possibility that the different frequencies is what is causing the static
reference from a uniden trouble shooter ( will be common as the phones use the same medium)
lots of noise or static on the line === possible solutions --check for interference from appliances ( microwave , tv etc ) or wireless devices ( baby monitors wifi equipment etc)
move the handset base away from the source
if you have any device that uses the phone line , add a DSL or telephone line filter to the system
it is possible from the times you state that the interference could be coming form a neighbour or further down the line so the filter may be the option
