Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Open Question

I have a GE 27938GC1-A, 2.4GHz cordless phone distorted sidetone

I have a GE 27938GC1-A, 2.4GHz cordless phone with severe audio SIDETONE distortion. Received signals are fine, as are the transmitted signals to the called party. This would rule out a defective receiver and microphone as well as local RF interference. I did not have this problem when it was new but when it started I did not use it for a couple of years but the battery has been kept charged. Has anyone out there got any ideas or should I deep-six this phone? Thanks for any suggestions.

SOURCE: ge cordless model 27831 issues

I had this exact problem and all I had to do was switch the handsets. Place handset #1 with the base that is plugged in to a jack, etc. It only took me 2 months of going without the second phone to figure this one out and it didn't come without way too much time looking for a solution on the net. Even then I just kind of guessed through the solution. Hope this helps

Dial tone is OK, but can't dial out
• Make sure the tone/pulse setting is programmed
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode).
2. Use the CID/VOL left (-) or right (+) arrow button to
scroll to 1TONE or 2PULSE, or use the touch tone
pad on the handset to enter the desired setting. For
example, to choose TONE dialing, press the number 1
key. 1TONE is the default setting.
3. Press flash/program to store selection. You will hear a
confirmation tone.

Samson 3o1u has a delay in my headphones

The delay is due to the time it takes to digitize the audio and pass the data through your computer to the audio board.

Depending on your system and software, you MAY have a setting for ECHO which loops the sidetone directely to your headphones so the delay isn't present/

Can't hear myself when i talk with my microphone. (such as skype or recording video on my laptop)

This is often refered to as SIDETONE in communication industry. Look for something in your software setup refering to SIDETONE or ECHO and turn that on.

Playback distortion

Good day sir, distortion can be caused by several factors, 1. overdriven audio source, try tuning down the volume to half. 2. the speakers are defective due to driver's coil scratching the magnet. need to replace the speakers, better swap first any good known speakers. hope this may help. if you may have any more questions, feel free to ask again. thanks

Answering machine is distorted and cracks

Once the audio quality of the answering system starts to go, there is very little than can be done. The 2460 has been off the market for several years and the cost to repair the unit (if it can be fixed) would probably be more than it would be to purchase a new telephone system.
