Question about Uniden TRU9480 Cordless Telephone

1 Answer

Round button in middle quits working.

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:
Handset
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 •

Increase hearing volume! How do I adjust the volume to incoming conversations?


While you have the phone handset off the base and turned on, try pushing the top or bottom part of the big round button in the top / middle part of the handset's keypad to turn the volume up or down respectively.

Here is a link to all the Uniden cordless phone user manual:

http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl


And here is a link to a user's manual for one Uniden cordless phone in particular:

http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DECT1560om.pdf


To view the Support Page or the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

See page 21 of the manual for detailed instructions and illustrations on how to increase the volume of the ringer.

Basically it reads as follows:

Your handset has a four-way function key that allows you to move the cursor on the display and access the most commonly used features at the touch of a button.
Press the left side of the key to open the phonebook.
Press the right side of the key to open the Caller ID list.
Press the top of the key to increase the ringer volume (while the phone is in standby) or speaker volume (while you are on a call).
Press the bottom of the key to decrease the ringer volume (while the phone is in standby) or speaker volume (while you are on a call).

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

On my model 8885 uniden phone, when I try to store a # the screen say's memory full. I only have two numbers stored. help


These phones use a "Shared" memory, the CID information and the Phone book information share the same memory chip. If you clean out the caller ID data you should be able to load more numbers in the phone book. Since you have an 8885 I am assuming you have TCX800 or TCX905 handset(s), to clear the CID memory, Follow these steps:

Deleting Information from the Caller ID List
1) When the phone is in standby mode, view the Caller ID
information to be deleted (see "Viewing the Caller ID
List" on page 50).
2) Press the DELETE soft key. De let e C all er ID appears.
3) Press volume up/down to choose Yes.
4) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

To delete all the CID information follow these steps:

Deleting all Caller ID names/numbers
1) When the phone is in standby mode, press cid.
Press the DELETE soft key. De let e A ll? appears.
2) Press volume up/down to choose Y es.
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone

How do I view caller ID?


The KX-T7731 is a proprietary system phone. You have a Panasonic phone system. Caller ID is transmitted between the first and second ring but the phone system itself is the only part that gets this information. The system has to be compatible for caller ID and it has to collect the caller ID data and send this information to your phone(s). Your phone can be used on many different Panasonic phone systems. The phone's part number does not help you. First thing you need to do is find out what system you have and if it has caller ID. The phone system part number should start with KXT like your phone.
