Question about Uniden DXI4286-2 Cordless Phone (DXI42862)
It just keeps ringing after I answer it. I have 2 other land phones and this does not happen with them, just the 2 Unidens.
SOURCE: only 1 phone rings
There is a small battery inside your main control unit that keeps programming in memory during a power outage. The life of the battery is about 5 years give or take. When the system goes down for an extended period (or possibly several quick on/off cycles) your programming will be wiped out. By default, only a few telephones will ring. The battery is most likely a small blue 3-cell battery soldered right on the main board. It's not easily replaced. You can get a technician to replace it or hook up a standard battery backup unit (UPS) made for a computer. Your phone system uses less power than a computer so it can use any UPS and will last longer than advertised. Hard to say exactly how long. Just don't re-program the system until you take care of the problem or it will just default on you again.

My phone which is 2 months old has incurred the same problem today! I took it back to the carphone warehouse and they are sending it away to be investigated. However a friend of mine wanted the identical phone and by coincidence went into the o2 shop today to upgrade and was told there was a callback on them and none available until further notice! There must be some sort of fault on the handset and probably this is 1 of them.

It has to do with a program called ringing line preference. Program # 4-11. Check out www.wedophones.com/Manuals/NEC/Electra%20Elite%20IPK%20Programming%20Manual%20-%20Document%20R%204.pdf
If you happen to have an Electra Elite 48, 192 or IPK this manual can show you how to program that feature. Don't take it lightly though, you can jeopardize your system if you do not know what you are doing.
