Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Open Question

Phone disconnects My landline phone rings once then disconnects before I can answer it. We have checked outside and the line is fine. I have unplugged all the phones and internet and tried in each jack and the same thing. We can call out, but incoming calls get disconnected after 1 ring. If we grab it fast enough we can sometimes get the call. Any ideas?

    I'm having the same problem - phone rings once, then stops. If I answer quickly enough I can get the call, although there's a lot of static. Answering machine doesn't kick in if I wait. Outgoing calls are fine. I've tried unplugging and replugging everything, even resetting my DVR (since it uses a phone jack for pay-per-view requests). No luck. I haven't seen any solutions to this - what gives?

SOURCE: Phone will not ring

I have the same problem for this hpone. The phone can answer and make call but not ring, of couse the answer machine function does not work. I used Rogers home phone and now the Linksys voip adaptor. But the phone works well with landline. I think the ring votage may not enough to ring the phone. Anyone get the solution?

SOURCE: Disconnects incoming calls after one ring

The problem may be a short on your line. (Have the local Teleco check your line.) If you have other phones, you may want to check them for dial tone(DT) when this happens. If you have no DT, your cordless may be the problem...unplug, and let charge overnight. If problem continues, replace the battery in cordless, or discontinue use.

SOURCE: HTC Touch Pro only rings twice before switching to voicemail

I think the issue is a misconception on the operation of the phone. The phone flashes for the first ring, vibrates for the second ring, and then rings for the 3rd and 4th ring before dropping to voicemail. it requires a registry modification as can be found on some forums to make it "ring immediately." If you put the phone on vibrate it will buzz immediately and skip the flashing lights step.

SOURCE: phone won't ring with incoming calls

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.

SOURCE: My landline phone won't ring, but I can get and make calls!!

My experience with an old (100+) and newer house is that it is important to make sure your telephone wires coming into the house, and the junction block where all the wires connect, stay clean and dry. If the wires can get damp or dirty, then when that 90 volts of ringing voltage come down the line, it may find a low impedance path. At my old house I had to make sure the outside wires didn't touch the ground or get damp. In my newer house, I discovered the wiring block was near a dryer vent where it got a ton of fuzz on it, plus the moisture, so eventually our phones stopped ringing even though we could make calls and our DSL was not affected. When we exposed and cleaned up the wiring block so that the phone company tech could re-visit us to troubleshoot things, suddenly it started working again.

Phone rings once then cuts off. Can ring out OK.


Something has a shorted the line, unplug all phones, then call your line with a cell phone and see if it is still happening. If so, you will need to call repair. If not, plug 1 phone in at a time and call your number again, and repeat until you find the phone causing it to trip ring.. also if you do not have a inside wire maintenance agreement with you local phone company, start the test at the network interface device..

I can make calls but phone doe not ring


You said "it seems to ring once then stops." One possible cause of what you're describing is called a "Ring Trip." It is characterized when the button that flashes to indicate an incoming call changes to steady red (which would normally indicate the call is answered) although no one actually answered the call. If that occurs, then you have to test to see whether you can tell where the problem is coming from. If you unplug all the phones, you can then call in (from a cell phone or other phone that's not part of the system) and see if the incoming call rings unanswered, as it should when no phones are attached. If all rings in OK, plug just one phone in at a time and call in to see if any particular phone causes the problem. If one causes the ring trip, then disconnect that broken phone. If ringing still stops when no phones are attached, you'll have to disconnect the phones' connection wires (Station Wires) at the phone system box that plug into the "Station Ports" (label them before you unplug any!). Do not unplug the plugs for the wires that feed phone company lines into the phone system, the jacks are called CO line ports. With the "Station" wires unplugged, see if If all rings in OK by calling in from a cell phone or other phone that's not part of the system. If all rings in OK, plug just one station wire in at a time to see if one causes the problem. If one station wire causes the ring trip, then disconnect that troublesome wire and inspect its "system box jack" and its phone jack for water damage, carpet cleaning solvent, exterminator spray or any other corrosive liquid damage. Sometimes a staple through a wire where there's humidity can cause the problem. This process will find the offending wire, jack or phone that causes a "Ring Trip." There are many other possibilities, but the extremely limited description you've provided "it seems to ring once then stops." doesn't help me send you a better answer yet.

Tried to connect SE6581B/17 but it does not ring.But able to make call through it.when another phone is connected it rings once thn no ring.


This sounds like "trip and ring" usually this trouble is from the service provider, but could be caused by a slight short in the phone, line cord, outlet, or building wiring. If this is a landline, it can be tested from the outside interface box. Open the customer side of the box with a screw driver, inside there is a modular connection with a short line cord connected. Remove the line cord from the modular connection, connect a standard single line telephone to the modular connection. This test jack connects the phone to the phone line and isolates it from the building wiring. Test incoming calls with the phone connected to the test jack, if the problem still occurs, the problem is from the service provider. If there is no problem at the test jack then the problem is in the building.

My phone rings only once or not a complete ring. if I answer it at 1 ring i can connect with the caller, otherwise it disconnects them we have been away for several months. the first day back it...


First try dialing 73#. Also try *73. Depending on you phone company, one of those will cancel call forwarding if it was inadvertently set. If that doesn't solve your problem unplug any answering machines or cordless phone base units that have an answering machine built in. Also unplug any fax machines or computers that are connected to the phone line. If this solves the problem you can plug things back in one a t a time and test to see which item is the culprit.
