Re: contolling the volume

2 ways.
First way is a “User rated” method. That is: To turn off the ringer for that phone. Note that you will also have no ringing for internal calls as well.
[Shift key] until the RING displays above the [S2] key, press it and use the jog dial to turn off the ringer. Do the reverse to turn it on again.
Some users will turn on [Auto Answer] so they can still receive internal calls.

The 2nd way is in “Installer Programming” and will require a certified dealer/technician turn off ringing to that phone on that (or any) line/s.

Turning the ringer on my phone. uniden 6.0

Without the model number of your Uniden phone, I don't know which silencing feature you are dealing with.

Some Uniden handsets have a Silent Mode. To toggle this on and off, press and hold the # key (below 9) for 5+ seconds when the phone isn't in use. When the silent mode is enabled, the handset will ask for a length of time for the 'no-ring' option. If no key is pressed, then the Silent Mode will continue until the # key is held again.

Other Uniden phones have Do Not Disturb. The button to enable/disable this will be on the cordless phone base. The answering system will automatically turn on and none of the handsets will ring when this feature is enabled.

You can also set the ringer volume to zero. Depending on the phone, you can reset this by pressing the volume up/down buttons or going through the menu. Look for the Ringer Volume in the same section of the menu as the Ring Tone options.

If you need additional information, please add a comment with the model of your phone. I hope this helps.

Can't turn the ringer on to notify when a call is coming in.

Without the model, I can't be sure of the method you need to enable the ringer.

Some Uniden phones toggle on a Silent Mode if you press and hold the # key (below 9 on the keypad) for 3+ seconds on one handset. When turned on, the phone will ask how long (1-9 hours) you want the ringer to be disabled for the handset. If no key is pressed within 5 seconds, the handset will not ring until the # key is pressed and held again.

Other Uniden phones have a Do Not Disturb mode. This disables the ringer on all handsets.To disable this, press and hold the DND button on the base. The answering system will be turned on if it isn't already on when DND is in use.

The other options to mute the ringer include the volume down on the handset when the phone is in standby. Some phones will also adjust the ring tone volume in the menu.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your phone for additional information.

How do you get rid of silent mode on

Which specific Uniden phone do you have? For most of their phones, press and hold the # key (below the 9). If the phone is in Silent Mode, it will exit that mode. If you aren't in Silent Mode, you will see a prompt asking how long to maintain the Silent Mode. Pressing a number will set the number of hours without the phone ringing. If no buttons are pressed, the phone will enter the Always On Silent mode after about 5 seconds.

I hope this helps.

How to take off silent mode? I never programmed it to do this...

See if this helps

Adjusting the Ringer, Earpiece and Speaker Volume

Adjusting the Ringer Volume

You can choose from four ringer volume settings (off, low, medium, and high)

separately on each handset or the base.

With the phone in standby, press or on the handset or VOLUME or

VOLUME on the base. The handset or base sounds the ringer at that level.

Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make the ringer volume

louder. Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make it softer or

turn it completely off.

When you hear the ringer volume level you want to use, stop pressing keys.

The handset or base will use the new ringer volume starting with the next incoming call.

Note: If you set the ringer volume to Off, the handset or base won't ring. Other handsets or base will ring according
to their individual settings.

Why is my phone on silent ?

Has happened before at many of our locations, always after being dropped. Usually the phone is not on silent, the ringer is broken. The only solution we have found is top replace the handset.

How do i turn off silent mode?

Which specific Uniden phone do you have? On the Uniden D1780, pressing the volume down button several times will turn off the ringer. With the phone in Standby, press the volume up button.
A different model, the D2180, has a Do Not Disturb button on the base. Press the button to allow the handsets to ring.

Other models toggle on and off the Silent mode by pressing and holding the # (pound key). I think it takes 3-5 seconds for the key to toggle the mode on or off.

Most manuals for the Uniden phones are available here: . Use the drop-down menu to select DECT phones, if you have one of them. The manuals are listed in alphanumeric order. Ignore the suffix; the manuals are the same even when the phone was sold with more handsets.

I hope this helps.

How to turned off silent mode

With the phone in standby, try pressing and holding the # key on the handset for 5+ seconds. This toggles the silent mode for the D1660 between "always on" and off. If this doesn't help, check the Ringer volume. (This can be set by pressing the volume + button with the phone in standby on some models.)

If this doesn't work, please add a comment with the specific model Uniden DECT 6.0 phone that you have? There are several. Manuals for many Uniden DECT phones are available from their customer support site: . The manuals are in alphabetical and numerical order.

I hope this helps.

How do i turn off the silent mode on a uniden phone, ive held down the # sign and nothings happening

Silent Mode
You can silence the ringers on the base and all handsets for a specific period of time; the answering system answers any incoming calls without playing anything through the speaker.
With the phone in standby, press and hold # on any handset. The phone prompts you to select the number of hours (1 - 9 or Always On) that you want it to stay in silent mode.
To confirm, press # or just wait about 5 seconds. The phone turns on the answering system and displays Silent Mode On on each handset.After the selected number of hours, the phone automatically exits silent mode. To exit silent mode manually, press and hold # again.
If the phone is in silent mode and you turn off the answering system, the phone exits silent mode.
Multihandset Features To use the features in this section, you need at least 2 handsets.
Your base supports a total of 12 cordless handsets: the one that came with the base and up to 11 DCX160 accessory handsets.You must register accessory handsets to the base before using them. (Handsets that came packaged with the base are already registered.)Handsets that aren't registered display a Not Registered message. For registration instructions, see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.If a handset was ever registered to a base, you must reset it before it can register to a new base; see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.Conference Calling
When an outside call comes in, two handsets can join in a conference call with the outside caller.
To join a call that's already in progress, just press Talk/flash or SpeSpeSpeaker.To leave the conference call, hang up normally; the other handset remains connected to the call.
