Question about Uniden TRU9480 Cordless Telephone
The round button in the middle that takes you to phone book, caller id, and volume up and down quits working. It will only do the volume up. This has happened three times. We did not keep the recipt so we can't get a diffferent phone. We just have to keep exchanging for a new handset.
We are very dissappointed with this phone.
Sounds like you may not be selecting the right menu buttom. The soft keys are right below the screen. these three buttons function change depending on which screen you are viewing. I have copied the instructions from the manual below. You must select phonebook to view the phone book using the round button. You must select volume to change the volume with the round button.
The Standby Screen
When the phone is in standby, the handset display shows the following items:
Ringer off icon (when the ringer is off)/ day of the week and time / battery iconHandset ID and BannerNumber of new Caller ID calls received (If there are no new Caller ID messages, the Handset ID appears here.) SUN 12:00A Handset #1 New CID: 5REDIALMENU
Using the Four-way Function Key
Your handset has a four-way function key that allows you to move the cursor (or highlighted area) on the display and access the most commonly used features at the touch of a button. By moving this key to the left, you open the Phonebook. Move the key to the right to access Caller ID information. To use this four-way key, place your thumb over the key on the station and move to the four positions to get the feel of how it moves and operates.
Using the Handset Menu
To open the menu, press the MENU soft key. Highlight the option you want by pressing the four-way function key. This will move the cursor; the option currently highlighted appears in reversed out text. Select the highlighted option by pressing the OK soft key. To exit the menu and return to standby, press .
If you do not press a key within 30 seconds, the phone will time out and exit the menu. When setting Date and Time, the time-out period is extended to two minutes.
Note: For GLOBAL SETUP and DEREGISTRATION menu options, make sure the line is not in use and the handsets are within range of the base. 123abcdefView the phonebook Four-way Function KeyUpView the Caller IDDown123abcdefView •
