Phone ringer off

It a little bit older cordless phone, I CAN'T find the model number, there's a menu/elect button on the face but I can't turn the ringer off. The base has a ringer that I turned off but the phone still rings. There are no switches on the phone or base for turning it off.

Can i turn down the base ringer (or turn off) on my vtech dect 6.0?

Welcome to FixYa!

The base ringer is dependent to your handset ringer. If you lower the volume or turn off the handset ringer, the base ringer will follow.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

My 2nd phone will ring bt the main one I can't seem to turn ringer on..Help Please

If this is the model I think it is, your phone line cord is pluged into the base of the main handset. So let me see if I'm understanding your problem...You have a single line phone with two handsets, and your remote handset rings, but the main handset at the base unit does not. Since your second handset rings when called,your line is working, and your unit's base is working, as well, or the other handset would not ring. Therefore your problem is within the handset itself. I will assume you've made sure the ringer is turned ON and the volume turned UP. Use the Menu button on the handset to find these variables and make sure the ringer is ON and turned UP. Place the handset on the charging cradle. Press the ON button WHILE the phone is on the cradle. You might have to use the speakerphone button to do this. This will resync your handet with its base.

Can't hear phone ringing

Adjusting the Ringer Volume (From the Uniden manual)

You can choose from four ringer volume settings (off, low, medium, and high) separately on each handset or the base.
  1. With the phone in standby, press ArrowUp or Arrow Down on the handset or VOLUME + or VOLUME - on the base. The handset or base sounds the ringer at that level.
  2. Use Arrow Up on the handset or VOLUME + on the base to make the ringer volume louder.
  3. Use Arrow Down on the handset or VOLUME - on the base to make it softer or turn it completely off.
  4. When you hear the ringer volume level you want to use, stop pressing keys.
  5. The handset or base will use the new ringer volume starting with the next incoming call.
  6. If you set the ringer volume to Off, the handset or base won’t ring.
  7. Other handsets or base will ring according to their individual settings.
