Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Center toggle not working all directions TRU 9485-2

So I am a tech. Took apart phone. Confirmed circuit is fine. Yep it's the same problem you get with TV remotes. Repeated use of key has worn off the metal oxide on the rubber pad of key. Tried the old graphite trick, but that only works for awhile.

So how do I order new membrane?

Re: Center toggle not working all directions TRU 9485-2

I've taken a look at the uniden australia site and it does not offer to buy or order pieces. Mostly likely, they'll ask to send it to a 'specialist'.

Ebay is always an option, if you know the exact membrane your looking for. Or find a local specialist shop, it should be cheaper than sending it in.

Thats all I can offer. Hope it helps.

How can I clear the previous registrations from the TRU 9485 base?

Use the following steps to reset the base to factory settings for all TRU models:

1. Disconnect the power from the base

2. hold down the following three (3) keys: [dnd] + [middle soft key] + [*]

3. While holding down the keys, plug in the base (hold the keys down until you hear a long beep).

According to Uniden Tech support, this is supposedly all it takes to reset the phone.

Cordless phone keypad problem

I too have similiar problem with Uniden phone. In my case it is only the center toggle. I indeed took the phone apart and this problem relates to the metal oxide wearing off the rubber keys that make contact with the exposed circuit lines. This same problem is common with TV remotes. Sometimes you can take apart device and find that cleaning the circuit with rubber eraser can help the problem. You can clean the rubber contacts, but be delicate as you do not want to remove the coating on the key. As far as taking phone apart? Well it helps to be a tech with experience. Usually there is at least one screw or two to remove in the battery area. Then you gently pry the phone apart. Sometimes devices like this slide apart after the screws are removed. If you pry start at position nearest where screws join parts together and work your way up. You may dent the plastic a bit in process. Once you have two halves apart be careful in next steps. There will be numerous screws holding the phone to face. Also be careful of wires to speaker. They are usually hardwired. No plug. As you take apart take careful note of how wires are routed. Also be careful of charge contacts that slide into base of phone.

I could fix my phone if I could get the part, but I suspect Uniden will not sell me the part and ask me to send phone in.

Mic not working.

It worked well for me too! Thanks!! I was told I had to buy a new phone because the microphone went back. Took the receiver apart (4 screws in back of handset and 2 that held the board in place), cleaned mic with alcohol and a q-tip, and removed the rubber piece that kept the mic clean (inside of the housing), and presto, it worked just fine. The ribbon cable came loose upon opening up inside of phone, but I stuck it back inside the top of base and I was ready to go.
