SOURCE: Uniden TRU9480 5.8GHz Cordless Does not receive calls/ ring & caller ID does not work

I own one to. I had the same problem. When I dailed a number it wouldnt dail until I got almost to the base. I was running a wireless router for my laptops the signal was interfering with my cordless phones.

SOURCE: No dial tone on handset

It may not be registed with the main unit. You may need to register the handset. With my uniden all i have to do is put it in the main base until it says what handset it is (it should be a number).

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

SOURCE: My Phone will not connect to the base unit...

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.

This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.

What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

SOURCE: my phone keeps saying unable to connect

is your phone about a year old? It may be the battery. The vtech phones have weak batteries that clunk out after about a year and you'll get dropped calls, looking for base etc... The phone still appears to be working and the battery indicator tells you it's charged, but the battery is too weak to keep the wireless connection going.

Had the same problem and replaced the battery. budgetbatteries.com had the cheapest ones. But it's a knockoff, so I don't know how long it will last. So far it's been 3 months and the problems are gone. I would try that first and see how it goes. I paid about $15 including shipping. If you buy it from vtech it's at least double...

SOURCE: Will not call out!!! 25204RE1

I just encountered this same problem on my phone. To resolve, you must hard reset the phone as follows: unplug power cord, unplug phone cord, remove all batteries. Leave disconnected in this state for at least 10 minutes. Now reconnect in following order: reinstalling batteries, reattach the phone cord followed by plugging in the power cord. This restores the phone to the original settings. You will lose items in memory, but the phone dial function should be restored. This was recommended by customer service and resolved my issue which sounds identical to yours. You can now proceed with resetting up your phone as desired.

My Sumsung GT 1550 phone wont turn on


That screen you're seeing is the battery power level; if it's all black your battery is almost completely discharged. Connect your charger and let it sit over night and try it the next day. If you still get the same screen after that your battery is probably shot and needs replacement.

I'd like to know what levels of radiation are given off by the base of this phone. Company would not (could not) help.


The signals emitted from a router and microwave are both much stronger than that of a cordless phone and its base. Depending on the model it will not attempt to connect to the phone if it is not in use or if it is sitting in the holster so there is no concern for signals in these situations. However, even if there is a signal sent there should be no concern, even for those more easily affected by such signals, because of the weakness of the waves in question.

My phone doesn't have dial tone. Each time I dial a number and try to call,it wont work. I call my phone but it wont ring. I need help on this. What happen to the phone? Or what should I do?


If you have another phone connect it to the wall outlet to see if you get a dial tone. This will indicate if your base unit is faulty.
Check the power adapter to the base unit, make sure it is getting mains power.
If the base unit has dual phone lines and if line 1 is only connected and the line 2 has beed selected then you cannot get a dial tone. In the chase press the line 1 to get a dial tone.
If your base unit has only one line then check the phone line at the wall socket make sure it is plugged in tight, also check the the connection at the base unit.
If this does not work then ring the phone company and get the to test your phone line, you may have a faulty line to your home.

My DECT6.0 telephone will not give me a dial tone nor answer any calls neither will the additional handset..Although my verizon direct line functions as it designed


Hello.

Here are some tips, found online:

Reset the phone:

Unplug the battery in the handset, unplug the phone line from the base and unplug the electricity from the base. Leave everything unplugged for an hour or two instead of a couple to five minutes that way you can get more of an idea of whether your phone will work. After an hour or two plug in everything. If resetting the phone doesn't work then try the next step.

Check the surge protector:

Is the phone line plugged into a surge protector? The surge protector may have stopped working or blown a surge, a sudden burst of electricity, which may have caused the dial tone in your cordless phone to go. Unplug the phone line from the surge protector then plug it back in and see if you get a dial tone. It could be that the phone line plugged into the surge was loose or not plugged in securely.

Try a different phone plug, outlet.

Check the base:

Is the base dusty and have possible dirt in the prongs where the phone sits? Lift the base and blow off dust.

Check the handset for dirt.


Rub metal connections on handset and base:

Use a pen cap or coin and rub the metal connections on the bottom of the handset. Rub the prongs, metal connections on base.

Hope these suggestions help.

My uniden DSS7855 with 1 base station and 3 handsets wont connect when i dial a number and hit the talk button it tries to connect and then comes up "'out of range" much appreciated for any help...


Clear the Handset's Base Data
  1. To remove the base data from a handset when out of range of the base, press and hold the 'end' button and the '#' button simultaneously until the phone beeps.
  2. It will now be de-registered from the base.
Note: This requires that the base and handset can communicate with each other.


Clear the Base Handset Data
  1. To de-register all handsets from the base, remove power to the base, and remove the handset from the base.
  2. Press and hold the 'flash/find hs' button while applying power.
  3. Wait for the beep and release the button.
  4. The charge light will now flash.
  5. Sit any handset in the cradle.
  6. When the flashing stops, re-register the handsets to the base.
Re-Register a Handset to the Base
1. Remove Handset Battery.
2. Reconnect battery while holding down "*" and "#" key.
3. Then press the right upper key under the LCD.
4. Press the "End" key.

I have a Uniden cordless phone EZI996, The lights on the base are blinking on & off bright red.


Hi.


Try the following procedure to reset and re-sync the phone system:



  • Disconnect all units from power.
  • Remove batteries from all handset.
  • Check all phone connections to base.
  • Check the phone connector underneath the base (RJ11 squared plug).
  • Put back battries on handsets.
  • Place handsets on base.
  • Connect base back to power with handset sitting on base.


If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault. In that case call Uniden to arrange repair or replacement.

Uniden support number for your area is prited inside the user documentation.


Regards.

Phone says "out of range"


I'd try pulling the battery on the phone that is out of range and letting it sit for a couple of days. Then plug the battery back in and see if the phone activates. If nothing happens then try putting it back in the charger. My guess is if it's been sitting in the charger the whole time, the battery developed a memory and thinks it's dead.

Cordless phone does not connect


I have the very same problem and it was after storing numbers into the directory, although that may not have anything to do with it.

Signal indicator flashes constantly


The following worked when I had what appears to be the same problem. Solution :- Remove batteries, remove power connection, wait 30 minutes, re-connect power and replace batteries then press button on base until it beeps. Both handsets started continuous beeping which eventually stopped and everything was returned to normal. Admittdly this sounds almost identical to the process used by 'versailles' above, but at least it confirms that the technical info given by the BT Helpline does work
