Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System

1 Answer

Squeal My vtech 5.8GHz phone squeals so loudly it is unusable.  But it does not do this all of the time.  It is installed in the kitchen, but I have been unable to associate the problem with any kind of appliance interference.  Any ideas/suggestions?

Re: Squeal

It sounds like it has to being interfered with by some other appliance maybe cell phone radio wireless network maybe. check and see if everything you have wireless isnt running on the same frequency or being interfered with while around the phone.

Check the battery on all the phones then make sure they are all programmed with different extension numbers. If the battery has been dead and you have had a power outage then it may have reset the phone to factory default extension 11.

Uniden cordless just squeals when green button pressed.

Your best bet is to completely take apart the phone and let it air dry for a day or two. If this still doesn't fix the problem then your phone will never work again. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
