Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Base handset not working

I have a Uniden cordless phone with three handsets. which I have owned for more than a year. (Model DCT7085-3)

The handset attached to the base is suddenly not working.

The screen message is "out of range" even though it is next to the base

The other two handsets are in other rooms and are working fine.

I don't see this problem described in the troubleshooing section of the manual. How do I fix this?

Will the handsets from a model 1680 work with an 1780 base?


The bases and the voltage on both phones are the same so they should fit together. The main differences are the handset features.

Sync


If by "sync a handset" you mean register a handset so it works with the base, then yes. It doesn't even need to be the same model. The manual gives instructions for registering a handset to work with the base. If you need a manual, select the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 phone from the list beginning at http://www.uniden.com/owners-manuals/dect-phones/scat/dectphones_mnl .

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

HOW DO U CONNECT THE HANDSET TO THE BASE.ALREADY TRIED THE REGISTER BUTTON,DID NOT WORK.IT CAME WITH NO DIRECTIONS,WE BOUGHT AT A FLE MARKET FOR 5 DOLLARS.


Are you sure of the model number? The D1680 should register the handset when you put it on the base for 30 seconds. (You should see Handset Registering followed by Registration Complete.) Then press Talk/Flash to check for dial tone. On this model if the registration fails, charge the battery (or replace the battery and then charge that). Then repeat the registration.
The manual for the Uniden D1680 is available here: http://news.uniden.com/pdf/D1680om.pdf .

For other Uniden phones, like the DEC1060, you need to navigate through the handset menus to find the Handset Registration command. Then press and hold the Register Handset (Find Handset) key on the base for 3+ secondsThen the base and handset will synch. (Low batteries could interfere with the process.)

For the D3288, you access the base menu for Register Accy and then press and hold # on the handset for 30+ seconds. (You will see Registering followed by Registration Complete.)


Additional Uniden cordless phone manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl .

I hope this helps.

(with a flea market phone, my first suggestion is to try a new battery for the handset. They only have a given number of recharge cycles and you do not know the history. However, sometimes the chargers do fail and a new battery will not work. In that case, the phone should be replaced. It isn't worth the cost of out-of-warranty repairs.)

I have three handset cordless phone only the main base phone work the other two says connecting when you turn it on but it wont connect it have loss its connection with the base phone


Often the handsets must be re-registered when they won't work. Sometimes they have to be de-registered, then re-registered before getting them to work. Uniden has many different model number 5.8 GHz cordless phones, send a comment with the model number and I will give specific help on your cordless. I have included a link where Uniden cordless manuals can be downloaded if you need it.

My cordless phone says "to register see owners manual for help" How do I get the phone working, it is a uniden DECT 6.0 Model DECT 1588-2


With the phone in standby, press MENU/SELECT on the base.
Move the cursor to select the Register Handset menu, and then press MENU/SELECT. Handset Registering will appear.
On the handset, press and hold # until the handset beeps and displays Handset Registering.
When the handset has registered to the base, the LCD will display Registration Complete then show the handset ID number.
If the display shows Registration failed, repeat the process again.
Note: If a handset has ever been registered to a base, reset the handset before you register it to a new base

Uniden TCX905 cCordess phone Handsets # 3 and 4


If the handsets are not currently registered to any base, the SYSTEM RESET menu won't appear.

If the TCX905 handsets in question are actually expansion handsets from another Uniden Phone System, they are not true TCX905 handsets. To verify, remove the battery cover and battery, then look at the inside label. If it lists the model of a TRU9xxx phone system, your handsets are NOT TCX905.

Uniden unfortunately has programmed the expansion handsets from SINGLE LINE TRU9xxx phone systems to NOT REGISTER against the TRU9466. (Those same handsets register fine against predecessor model TRU8866 though).
