Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Rain drops falling on my phone

One of my remote phones was left outside in the rain. even though it was damp I was able to make calls and even received calls. However within a couple of hrs the phone went dead. switched the battery with another remote but the rain phone still didn't work. the other phone with the rain battery did work so its not a battery problem. reassembled the rain phone and put it back in its cradle for 3 days by now and it still dosn't work. so...do you think the phone can be repaired or should I buy a replacement?

My God, you should have gotten a blow dryer immediately and dried the circuits. Not a hot heat, but a steady heat clean clear through. it has worked every time I dropped the phone in the toilet or the dishwater.

    Depends on how long you took to get to it. Plus you made calls when it was damp. That damages circuits. Imagine puttin water on a light bulb If you, then, left it damp for thosE two hours instead of insuring total dryness - IT'S DEAD!

    You have got to get to it immediately or more sooner than later to insure your circuit survival. And, of course, if you did not thoroughly dry it - well , you know, Oh yeah, and it the heat was took hot, then, you know.

    You unit is fried and there is nothing you can do about it now.

    By the way, it can become a battery problem, because a friend of mine kept his phone in his pocket and body moisture killed his phone. It swelled the battery and killed the phone.

    Know this doesn't help get the use of your phones back.

    Sorry!

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 is wet. dropped the phone in the rain...it was left outside 45 minutes


One time that happened to us tho it was actually dropped in a pool. We took battery out and dried it for a couple days. When we put the battery back in, it ACTUALLY worked. May not work for everyone or every phone but worth a try.

Left outside in the rain


This phone is out of production. You could buy a used system (Amazon) for about $60. You'll have to weight the cost against perhaps a newer system.

Phone got wet & works fine but says network error


Cell phones do not recover gracefully from getting wet internally. The electronics were not made to get wet.
You would be better served to get a new phone. Getting a cell phone wet is almost alway death to the electronics, even if the phone is dried out completely, The problems caused by the damp electronics will cause strange and intermittent problems.

Cell phone dropped in water - red dot showing - options?


you don't need to actually drop your phone in water for there to be water damage.
simple things like having your phone in the rain, in the bathroom while you shower, around a hot tub, or possibly even if it's really humid outside can set this water damage sensor off.
it just gives phone companies more ways to void your warranty.

hope this helped.
