Uniden powermax 5.8 handset

I have a base and 2 handsets set up in the downstairs of my house. The base and one handset work fine but the other handset will fade out while I am talking so that I can't hear the call.

    I have the same problem. Just one of my two Uniden Powermax 5.8 GHz hansets routinely fades in and out making it essentially useless. Tried long recharges and installed a new battery. Neither had any effect. Trying to find a place tio buy just one handset.

    My handset will occasionally fade out while I'm on the phone so I can barely hear the person on the other end of the line. It always comes back to a normal volume but it is very random and annoying. Whenever I'm not using it, my handset rests in the base and is always charged. Any suggestions?

Uniden powermax 24 out of range


Check the line comming into the main handset base. Make sure it is not cracked or your cat hasn't chewed through it.LOL This sounds like the most likley solution. Try hooking the main phone line to an ordinary old fashioned touch tone phone with a wired handset and if that is working then the problem lies in the main base of your new phone. It could be as simple as reprogramming the base.

Uniden dect6.0 handsets do not operate


I am writing for my Mum, who is 99. We live far apart, so it is a bit difficult to fix her problem. She had a new Uniden DECT 60 (?) installed in early July. It seemed to be working fine when we left her, but she says it only rings twice before going to voice mail. She says it has always been like that. How can we fix this for her even though we live at a distance?.

Same manual as lethean provided on a similar post but Page 24 if the previously used Base is Unavailable and your phone shows "Deregistration" in the Menu.

Base Unavailable (Handset Only)
To clear the base registration data in the handset, please follow these steps:
Press and hold [] and [#] for more than 5 seconds. Select the BASE UNAVAILABLE submenu.
BASE UNAVAILABLE appears. Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key.
ARE YOU SURE? appears. Move the cursor to select YES. Press the OK soft key.

Handset does not work


Your handset is no longer communicating with your base. Depending on your model, the solutions can be a couple of different options. If I could view pdf files on this computer I would look it up for you. But here is the link to the manual on Unidens website- http://www.uniden.com/pdf/TRU8865-2om.pdf

Nonetheless, give this a try. Power down your base, and pull the battery out of your handset. Plug the battery back in the handset and set the bad handset in the base cradle, and then power up the base. Wait about 30 seconds, then give the phone a try. If it still does not work, then you need to try to "re-register" the bad handset back to the base. Look in the manual under "registration" procedures. Hope my help fixes it for you. Good Luck, CG
