SOLUTION: My handsets stopped ringing after power was stopped to the main base, too. I put one on the main base and that one started working but the others still didn't work. So I put the other phones on the main base while I called from my cell and let it ring. The other phones started to ring and work again.

I know it sounds silly but you may just need to check your messages on your phone then the blinking light should go off.

My att cellphone only rings 4 times before voicemail


If the problem is with an AT&T cellphone you will need to call them or go log in online to change that feature, however if it is with a Uniden Cordless Phone (the product this question is linked to) the directions below found in their manual should help:

Uniden Cordless Phone
From the base
1) Press [clock/menu] three times. The base displays the current number of rings (2, 4, 6, or TS for toll saver) and announces the setting.
2) Press [>>/select] or [<</select] until the desired ring time appears.
3) Press [set]. A confirmation tone sounds, and the answering machine announces the new ring time.

From the handset
1) Press the MENU soft key. Select the ANSW. SETUP menu, and then the RING TIME submenu.
2) Move the cursor to select a Ring Time (2 TIMES, 4 TIMES, 6 TIMES or TOLL SAVER).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Hope this is of help

I have a Uniden cordless unit hooked in 4 lines. Incoming calls ring briefly for about 1 second and go out! You can talk if you pick up but not sure why no normal rings. There is no problem calling out....


When someone calls you and your phone behaves this way, does the caller get disconnected? The phone may be causing this, but it may also be due to trouble in the telephone line itself. The trouble is caused by defective wiring, a partial short circuit. When you pick up your phone to call out, the voltage on the phone line is low and it works normally. When you get an incoming call, a high voltage is sent to ring the phone. Because of the partial short, the phone company's equipment thinks you've answered the call as soon as the ringing starts. But you haven't picked up the phone, so the phone company's equipment thinks you've hung up and disconnects the call. The result is that short burst of ringing.

Disconnect the cordless phone base unit from the line and try another phone. If you still have the trouble this confirms the line is at fault. You'll need to contact your phone service provider for service. If it's in the outside wiring, they're responsible for repair. If the problem is in your home wiring, you may need to pay them unless you have a wiring maintenance plan.

If the problem goes away when the cordless base is disconnected, then it's time for a new phone.

Phone is not ringing


Unplug your Uniden Cordless Phone and plug in a regular un-powered phone. If it rings your cordless base station is bad and you will need a new one if it does not ring then there is a problem on your phone line and you need to contact your phone company. Note, the phone company will charge you for repairs inside your house.

Uniden cordless phone


Hello, While I cannot locate that model in any Uniden database (you might want to find the literature), It sounds as if the handset may be communicating with its base, but you have lost the dial tone. Did any storms pass through recently? Here is what you do. Go to your base and push the locator button on your base station to call the handset via the page/locator function. If it rings the handset and you can answer it okay then you know your handset is working well and communicating with your base (the radio portion is working correctly). If it does not ring your handset then your Uniden is definately bad (radio wise). But, I am going to guess that it is okay but you still cannot communicate with the outside world and dial out to get dial tone or get an incoming call. Okay, so we have a dial tone problem. The next step is to see if dial tone is getting to your base. So you will need to take another good telephone, preferably a handy "line powered" telephone (no batteries or ac adapter needed) you can use in a power failure emergency. Take that good phone and plug it into the phone cord you unplug from your Uniden base. If you get dial tone, then your uniden does need repair. If it does not get dial tone, then you have a bad cord, jack or something in your phone wiring. If thats the case, change cords, look for corrosion, dirt or bent pins in the jack on the wall. My guess is that your Uniden has gone bad, likely from a slight surge on the phone line. If you do need your Uniden repaired you can contact Uniden they are at http://www.uniden.com/repair/service.cfm , however I don't believe they offer repair, but offer to sell you a replacement. Or you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com where you can get your Uniden Cordless unit repaired, not exchanged. Good Luck, CG

Uniden 5.8Ghz phone.


You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.
