Place the phone in the base cradle for a minute and it should re initialize and solve your issue.
Good luck.

PS: By "Remote phone" I am assuming that you mean "Cordless"?

CS6482 model phone system; (1) base unit, (1) additional phone. Cordless phones are both showing "LIne In Use" but there is no dial tone and neither phone is "in use"


The "Line in Use" message often occurs when there is no dial tone. You'll need to identify where the dial tone problem is coming from. First, check that the base has power and try a new RJ-11 cable between the jack and the base. I like to use a old corded handset phone for additional testing. First plug in a different phone to the jack. Do you have a dial tone? If you do, then the CS6482 has failed.

If there is no dial tone, next try plugging the test phone into a different phone jack, if one is available. If there is a dial tone at another jack and a new cord didn't help at the first jack, then you have a wiring fault at the first jack. This could be in the jack itself or in the wiring to where the phone service comes in. You can fix the jack more easily. Remove the cover plate and determine the type of jack and look for a loose wire. If the wires are attached to screws, you remove the insulation from the end of the conductor and slide it under the appropriate screw. Then tighten the screw onto the wire. For keystone jacks, you'll need a push-down tool to press the wire back into place. The tool is sold in most hardware stores in the electrical aisle. Do not strip the wire before pushing it into place. See http://cablesupply.com/content/47-telephone-connections-and-rj11 to match the wire colors to the correct pin on the jack.

If you do not have a dial tone at another jack or do not have another phone jack in the house to test, find the service box. Open the box and check the connection type. If you find an RJ-11 jack, use your test phone to check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone or it isn't an RJ-11 jack, contact your telephone company. They can test the phone line and will repair the wires for free if there is outside damage. If the problem is inside the walls, the telephone company will charge a fee to repair the issue. (This may be easier than finding a broken wire in the wall yourself.) Note: some telephone companies are trying to move residential units to newer fiber optic services and do not want to repair the copper wire to the door. This can cause problems with some security phone alerts.

I know at least twice we lost the dial tone on copper wiring after rodents chewed on the wires. That issue hasn't repeated since we were upgraded to fiber. However, during the upgrade, the installer dropped one of the RJ-11 lines behind the siding on the outside wall. Thus one phone was without a dial tone, we found the dangling wire and restored the phone service in seconds. We also lost the dial tone after contractors dug into the underground telephone service up the road from us. That was repaired quickly.

I hope this helps.

Lost phone manual, uniden d2997


I have a standard trouble-shooting routine for cordless phones. 1) Remove the battery from the handset (from all handsets for a multi-handset version). Then unplug the power cord from the base and wall outlet and also remove the telephone cord. Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power and phone line cords. Reconnect the battery (ies) for the handsets. Make sure this connection is tight. Then make sure that the battery is fully charged (15 hours before first use) and register the handsets if needed. This is done by putting each handset onto the base in order for the D2997. Wait about 30 seconds for each one until you see the Handset Registered message. Make sure that you are within range of the base.

Next try a different telephone (RJ-11) phone cord between the base and the wall jack. Also check if the power adapter for the base is warm. For the next set of tests, I like to use an old corded telephone. Using a different phone, check if you get dial tone at the jack. If there is a dial tone, then the problem is with the Uniden phone. If the above trouble-shooting didn't help, then contact Uniden. These phones aren't meant to be user serviced.

If you do not have a normal dial tone, try another jack on the same telephone line. If there is dial tone at another jack, then you have a problem with the first jack. Otherwise find where your telephone service comes in. If you have a fairly new service, you'll find an RJ-11 jack. Plug your test phone into the jack and test for dial tone. If you have no dial tone or can't test your line, call your phone company. They will fix any outside problem for free. If it is an inside wiring problem, look at the visible wiring and determine if the wires are damaged. Open the jack (if only one is bad) and check for loose wires. There are two types of jacks. One secures the terminal wires with screws and the other uses a punch-down jack. For the screw type, strip additional insulation from the conductors, if needed, and then reconnect them. For the punch-down type, you will need the punch-down tool. It is available at many hardware stores in the wiring section. Use this diagram to check your jack wiring: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx . If you can't see an obvious problem with the wiring, you may want a professional to deal with the wiring in the wall. Your telephone company will do this for a fee.
Uniden has the manuals for their DECT phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The manual for the D2997 is available here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D2997om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

What do you check when the phone lists a message of "Check TEL Line"? The phone cord in plugged in so I'm not sure where to go from here. I have a model DECT1480


Usually this means that the phone isn't detecting a dial tone. For diagnostic purposes, I like an old corded phone.

First try a new telephone cable between the jack and the phone. Then try the old phone and see if you have a dial tone. If you have a dial tone with the old phone but not the cordless, then the Uniden needs service. These phones are not designed to be fixed by the user. If the phone is under warranty, send it in. (see page 28 of the manual www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1480-3om.pdf )

If neither phone gets a dial tone, check at another jack if you have several to see if the jack is the problem or if it is a more global problem. If the problem is at one jack, you may want to open the jack and check for a loose wire. Some wall plates hold the wires with screws; others use a keystone jack with the wires pressed into slots using a "punch down tool". Keystone jacks do not need the insulator removed from the individual wires. For the screw connectors, you do need strip the individual wires. The punch down tool is available at many hardware stores in the electrical section (for wiring homes for ethernet and other services).

If you do not have a dial tone at another jack, find where your telephone service comes into your home. Open the panel and identify how the connection is set up. Some use RJ-11 jacks. In that case, plug in your test phone and see if there is a dial tone at that point. If there is no dial tone, contact your phone company for service. There is a break in the wires coming into your home. The phone company will fix this for free. (If the service doesn't use an RJ-11 jack, you need a special adapter to test at this point. Your phone company technicians will have this.)

If there is a dial tone at the incoming service, you have a inside wiring problem. Check any visible phone wiring for damage to the insulation. If the problem is with wiring inside a wall past the jack, you will need a professional to track the break. Your phone company will fix this for a fee.

I hope this helps.

Not able to ring out or recieve calls on landline 01772465172


Is there a dial tone? Have you tried plugging in outside in the NID(phone box) on the side if the house. Take a corded telephone out to the box if it has a test port to plug into. If it does, plug in. If you have a dialtone, then the problems inside with either the station wires or jacks, or other equipment that is plugged into the jacks. Remove all devises from the jacks if trouble is inside and take a known working phone and plug it into a jack. if it works, plug in another device, so on and so on. Be sure to check dial tone, break dial tone by pressing a button. Hang phone up and see if dial tone has returned. If not, then that piece of equipment is bad.
If no dial tone at the NID, then call in a trouble report of NO DIAL TONE to the telephone company of cable provider. To save money if trouble is inside, purchase the inside wiring maintenance plan and then have them come work on the phone lines. After the service is restored, call and cancel the maintenance. $5 and you're back in service, provided that's all the teleco charges for wiring maintenance.

Message reads: "Check tel line"


You can remove your telephone line from the base unit and fix it to stranded telephone unit and hear the dial tone.If it heard then some inductor or else part may be broken inside the base unit due high current surge.If the dial tone didn't heard from the other phone also check for the corroded line cord or modular box fault with the tel line.There should be 30 Volt-50Volt D.C.Voltage at your wire ends.

How do I turn off message waiting indicator light


The VMWI led will stay lit if you have voice mail service from your telephone service provider. A lot of providers will also give a broken or stutter dial tone when you first go off hook as an indication of messages waiting. If you hear a stutter dial tone when you first go off hook, you will need to contact your telephone service provider. If not, you can try a simple reset on the base unit, just unplug it from teh AC adapter for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in.

1. Make certain you are using the correct charging plug in adapter. This can cause serious troubles.
2. Replace the batteries and if no dial tone..........
There is no setup or program that will give the cordless set dial tone once removed from the base.
3. Make sure the cordless you have came with that base.

Let me know if this helps....
There are other things we can check with more info.
