Without the model, I can't be sure of the method you need to enable the ringer.
Some Uniden phones toggle on a Silent Mode if you press and hold the # key (below 9 on the keypad) for 3+ seconds on one handset. When turned on, the phone will ask how long (1-9 hours) you want the ringer to be disabled for the handset. If no key is pressed within 5 seconds, the handset will not ring until the # key is pressed and held again.
Other Uniden phones have a Do Not Disturb mode. This disables the ringer on all handsets.To disable this, press and hold the DND button on the base. The answering system will be turned on if it isn't already on when DND is in use.
The other options to mute the ringer include the volume down on the handset when the phone is in standby. Some phones will also adjust the ring tone volume in the menu.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your phone for additional information.

**Selecting the Ring Tone and Volume Your phone has five different ringer tone/volume combinations you can choose from.

To turn the ringer off, select RINGER OFF. 3) When the phone sounds the ring tone and volume you wish to use, press [end].
**Temporarily Mute Ringer If the handset is off the base while an incoming call is ringing, simply press [end] to mute the incoming ring. The ringer will sound with the next incoming call. Note: You can only mute the handset ringer if the handset is off the base when the phone starts ringing. Adjusting the Earpiece.

The do not disturb feature (DND) allows you to mute the ringer, the base, and any registered handsets at the same time. The phone must be in standby mode. Press and hold do not disturb on the base. You will hear a confirmation tone, and the DND LED illuminates. To cancel the DND feature, press do not disturb again. You can also mute the ringer tone while the phone is ringing by pressing do not disturb on the base. Activating the DND while the answering system is off will turn the answering system on automatically. The answering system setting will reset to the original setting when you cancel the DND. If you press answer on/off when the DND and the answering system is on, both of the DND and the answering system will turn off. To mute the ringer tone temporarily for each handset or the base, when the phone is ringing, press the MUTE soft key on the handset or the base. The ringer tone will return to the previous setting starting with the next incoming call.
Could be two things, first is DND or do not disturb. Make sure that its turned off by either pressing the DND button or feature #85.The second is that the ringing wasn't turned on in programming.
