Clean the silver charging contacts on the base and on the phone by buffing with a soft cloth or use a Q-tip. Try swapping the battery with one of the other phones to see if the battery may be bad.

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

Batteries will not charge on phone


Try cleaning the two metal contacts o the base of the hanset and the the two spring loaded contacts on the base/charging unit. Use an alcohol based solution such as glass cleaner or surgical spirit on a cotton bud or piece of kitchen paper.

If that does not work it may mean that your batteries need replacing.

All of a sudden our 3 Uniden phones don't work. However the phone on our land line works. The screen on our Uniden phones show that they are fully charged. The upside down triangle flashes on and off....


It sounds like your hansets are no longer registered to the base unit. Since you have not listed the specific model phone you have I cannot give you specific steps to re-register the handsets to the base, however if you go to http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat+1 you can find the manual for your phone and follow the instructions for re-registering the handsets

I dont have a dialling tone and i cant phone out also i have a flashing green light on the right hand side of the base charger. i have a symphony 2210


Hello and Welcome to Fixya!

First thing to do is to check first the phone line, you need to know if there was no fault or problem on the telphone line. You may need an extra telephone handset to test and check if there was a dialtone or you have a problem on the line and not on your unit.

Second, make sure that the unit was fully charged and there was no electrical short circuit happened into it, better to unplug the unit for while to reset any extra faulty electric stored on the hanset.

Third make and double check your setting, remember if you have change anything or you change any value on the menu settings of the phone. See if your tone was not set pulse tone.

This is a steps by step procedure and let me know here again for any development.

I have two older (2002) model cordless Uniden phones that require the handsets to return to their original factory bases. If they have rested on another Uniden base, even of the same model, there is no dialup tone. Replace to the original base and you should be back in service.
