Question about Motorola Mobility MD481SYS Cordless Phone

Open Question

Buttons do not work

My 481 cordless with extended handset. The ON button & Off button of both handsets no longer work. This has been the best phone we have owned, however Motorola Does Not repair this model and it has been discontinued. Is there a repair shop with a reasonable charge that can repair them or can I remove the case to try and clean the buttons ? or shall I just web search to find new ones.

Phone is most likely broken.
Look on Ebay for a replacement phone system or a good used handset.

SOURCE: Can't register Motorola handset.

Hi,

There is a very little that we can proceed to here, as these phones are known for the problem that you are facing & most of the customers that I have myself seen ... finally get rid of them buying new ones,

Let’s try resolving it though;

1.) Open battery compartment, remove battery. Also remove belt clip on back of phone. You might have to pry it a little.
2.) Pop off the access panel on upper back of phone. This panel merely hides two screws.
3.) Unscrew all visible screws, Separate front and back of phone. You might have to wiggle the pieces relative to each other. The rubber strips on the sides are held in place with dovetail grooves.
4.) The phone should come apart in three sections.
5.) At this point, get some cotton swabs and alcohol. Dip a swab in the alcohol and rub down the contacts on the keypad and little black pads underneath each button on the rubber membrane.
6.) Let it dry and re-assemble. Your phone should now work properly.

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.

Good Luck & Thanks,

Shiv.

How do I link handset to base after power outage CS6529-3


You set the cordless phone back into the charging base. After a few seconds (longer if in need of a charge), the cordless will register with the base establishing the connection required to place and receive calls.

ADDING HANDSET SAYS OUT OF RANGE


A search of Uniden support only said to call 1-800-297-1023 with handset registration issues. The rep picked up quickly and walked me through the reset procedure. Here it is step-by-step:

1. Remove battery
2. Hold down the * and # buttons and reinsert battery. You should hear a long beep. If not retry. (This is a bit awkward but hold the handset upside down and it's workable)
3. Screen will be blank. Immediately press the right soft menu button.
4. Screen will report that EEPROM is clearing and then state EEPROM Clear Ok
5. Remove battery (yes again)
6. Reinsert battery (this time there's no need to hold down any buttons)
7. Handset will reboot with Welcome screen and then state that phone must be registered (this is the status a handset should be in from the factory)
8. Place handset on base and it will register as normal

Cordless phone EnGenius SN 920


. A new handset arrives with a handset ID number of 00, to register this handset to your system take the following steps:
  1. On the EnGenius base unit press and hold down both the "Volume" & "Intercom" buttons for about five seconds. You will hear a beep from the base unit. You can now release the two buttons.
  2. On the EnGenius handset (00), press the following buttons: "menu", "6", "1".
  3. A new handset ID number (ie: 12, 13, 14…) is automatically assigned by the base and registration is complete.

This sounds like the register-deregister problem elsewhere on this page. Try holding down the "end" and "#" buttons for about 6 seconds to deregister the phones and then reregister them. I had this problem too and it worked for me.

Handset ?No Link To Base? error and no dial tone


2/29 Have you registered or re-registered the handset?
"No link" can mean handset is not accepting radio wave of base unit. At Mfgr website pull-down operator's manual and look for registration instructions. Some sequence of buttons will create a radio signal from base (have handset off base) then another sequence of buttons on handset will accept radio signal. If handset has "menu" button, try "menu", then "00" (zero zero) then select an accept or "OK" button. Good luck.

Handset Buttons Stopped Working - Full Battery


Here is a link to Uniden's site, and on the right side of the page, there is a link for a download manual pdf and helpline
http://www.uniden.com/products/productdetail.cfm?product=TRU8885-2

also worth checking if any buttons are stuck, or if the handset is set to pulse rather than tone mode, or if it has had a tumble or knock, possibly the keypad connector has come loose .

Hope this helps.
