When I was going to change the batteries I inadvertently hit some combination of buttons and now the phone rings constantly when the power cord is plugged in. Is there a reset or cancel button to un-program whatever I did?

First, check the wirings (power cord and phone cord). Are they properly plugged in to their outlets (power outlet and phone jack, respectively)? Have you tried plugging in another phone? Does it ring? If yes, it could be your phone system, if not, let's try this troubleshooting steps. This is one of the basic troubleshooting steps for cordless phones. Unplug the battery from the phone/s, unplug the power plug from the main base unit. Wait for 10-15 seconds and plug everything back in. First the batteries then the power plug.
Hi, A power outage may have shut the answering machine off. On mine there is a program button. I can turn my answering machine on or off, how many rings before it starts. If you do not know how to access the phones programs, try unplugging the little square transformer plugged in the electric wall socket and plug it back in. The phone may tell you how to reset the functions. Worth a try.
Plug in another phone that you know works to that phone cord plugged into the uniden phone now just to make sure that it's not just a bad phone cord. Once you are sure the phone cord is good you need to make sure you go through all the phone settings ( such as the time etc..)Good luck.
I just bought a new Uniden DECT 6.0 phone and had a similar problem. It wouldn't ring when plugged into my Linksys voip router, but my old 5.8 GHz did ring. It would get a dialtone and make calls, but when called via an outside line, it would appear as if it was ringing. If I picked up during this "silent ring," it would answer and take the call. It wasn't a ringer volume issue. I called tech support, they said on the main headset, unplug the battery, then unplug power from the base, then unplug the phone cord from the base. Wait 15-30s. Plug the phone cord, then power, then reinstall the battery. Press the End button on the phone. Put the phone on the base for 15-30s. Pick up the phone. Press and hold the Find button on the base. Do this Find thing 3 times. Put the phone back on the base. Wait 10-15 minutes. Then try calling it to see if it rings. Worked for me, finally got it to ring before I decided to return it.
Press feature key then dial #* password 000000 next, go to sets, hit show, hit next till ringing assingment is display hit show and change from n to y on line ringing assingment. do this for each set and line that need to ring.
Okay first you'll need to know the 2 digit "Set" number for your Phone.
Press "Featire" *0 then Intercom to get the 2 digit number.
Okay Now we need to configure:
Press "Feature" **CONFIG or **266344
Press: Next until "Sets" appears "press Show" Top Right Button
Enter 2 digit "Set Number"
Press Next Until You Get Ringing Lines
Hit the "Change" Button to Turn the Line to "Yes" to ring
Do this for each Line you have that you want to ring.
Done, Please Rlease.
