Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
On any given day, my phone will "lose" it's dial tone or after a call is completed, the phone doesn't clear out/hang up from the call. I have to unplug the phone cord from the jack to "reset" the dial tone. (This doesn't just happen with calls.)
Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.
