Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

One dead phone out of three

One of our 3 phones died. We tried charging it on a different base in case we had a faulty base with that phone but no luck. We got a new battery which I'll be returning today because that didn't work either. What else can I try to see if this phone will come alive again. The other 2 work fine.

It may be a stupid question but you didn't state the answer; did you allow sufficent time for the replacement battery to charge?
12-14 hours may be necessary to bring a new battery up to full charge.

Instead of wasting time and gas finding, then returning the new battery pack, you could have swiped the pack from a working phone to test the dead one.
If the handsets are fitted with Ni-Cad batteries, the individual cells can short and one out of three dead = no operation.

The cost of a simple digital multimeter is now so low, ~ $10 US or less for example, it pays to have one at home to check such things before spending time to look for items you really don't need.
The meters are very simple to use and generally come with brief instructions (albeit in Chinglish) that are adequate for homeowner use.
These are available from various tool outlets, eBay, etc. or if you have Radio Shack, you can buy one there for only twice the price elsewhere.

How to re set phone


hi there more often than not phones like your Bt4500 have a battery that's installed inside the handset, now after long charge times and the handset being plugged in the base the battery becomes lifeless and faulty and dies, once a power cut happens as the handset has no longer got power the battery can not recover ! my best advice would be to open the back of the handset and locate the battery and replace with same from mapplins or ebay and give new battery a good charge this should get your phone working again

How do I fix base unit battery charging system not property working when I leave hanset on base unit automatic dead when I lft hanset for answer incoming calls?


It is highly likely that your battery pack needs replacing. If you have had it for more than a year and use it often then it is quite possible. You can buy a new one at radio shack online or search for one similar on ebay. Price is about 10 pounds though.



If you have more than one of these phones it may be worth while buying more than one as it will save you postage and might get you a discount.

Hope this was helpful

Hi , The problem with my phone is that even though there is full charge , suddenly all the charge is depleted and the phone dies. I am unable to figure out if there is some loose connection with the...


"The charge is depleted and the phone dies" This happens in two cases....
  1. Your batteries are dead and old. Try replacing the batteries
  2. This can also happen if there is a short-circuit somewhere in the connection.
Try exchanging your batteries with a new one or with another phone of same model. If the problem is gone then your batteries were dead but if it arises again there must be a short-circuit somewhere, get is checked....

BT Freestyle 2200 do dial tone


I have this model of handset but as a triple. I get three beeps from the handsets if the batteries are low or flat.
Are your phones getting charged?

However,

Try putting the base station into a different phone line/ socket if you have one.

if not - Try putting a corded phone on your phone line. Maybe there is something faulty with the socket, maybe there is no dial tone due to faulty wires?

No dial tone and "line in use " message


Try the simple things first. Try a different phone. In my case, I had the phone company check - outside was fine. After two hours my phone worked. I figured out what happened in my case. Both phones were dead (battery). I think one died with the phone off the hook. once the phones were fully charged, the phone worked.
