Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Uniden Powermax 5.8 GHz Model # TRU8860

My phone keeps saying that it is out of range. I have checked the phone connection and the power cord and they are all working fine. My 1 year old nephew had the phone (it was NOT dropped) and it stopped working shortly after he had it. The display keeps telling you that it is connecting and then it tells you that you are out of range. Any suggestions??? Do you think maybe he changed a setting? I don't know what he could have pressed to change the range?

    Thanks for the response, they however did not work. I could not find anything that said "PRIVACY MODE" in the menu, and when I tried to deregister the phone it once again told me that it was connecting and then said it was out of range. Any other suggestions??????

    This where would the antenna be on this phone? It is not sticking out of the top of the reciever?

Check page # 37 of your user guide. The privacy mode may have been activated.
If that did not work you will need to de-register the handset, check page # 30, to register the handset back check page # 16 of your user guide.
Here is the user guide, just in case you do not have it handy.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

    The privacy mode is found on page # 37. Try and see if that works.

    If that did not work I would suggest to call the Uniden customer hotline at 1-800-297-1023

    It the telephone is less than a year old, Still under warranty.

    Good Luck.

Check any damaged on the antenna, the possible problem was there, that's it can connect to the reciever.
