Question about Phones

We have a WDECT 2345 1. The cordless handset will not hold its charge, or only for a very short time, despite having a new battery. In fact it has been on charge for 8 hours and not recharged. Please advise. Keith Davis, 110 Hodgson Cres, Pearce ACT 2607, Australia. Ph 02 868188

Try to charge its batteries using another charger to see where is the problem.

    Have a look at your manual (page 77)



    http://www.uniden.com.au/resources_main/...

    When the battery pack is very low, the phone is programmed to eliminate functions in order to save power.

    Te battery pack needs to be charged when

    - The empty battery icon appears.

    - Low Battery appears in the display.

    If the phone is in standby mode, none of keys will operate. If you are on a call, complete your conversation as quickly as possible, and return the handset to the cradle.

    Cleaning the battery charging contacts

    To maintain a good charge, clean the charging contacts on the handset once a

    month. Dampen a cloth with plain water. Gently rub the damp cloth over the

    charging contacts until all visible dirt is removed.

    Dry the contacts thoroughly before returning the

    handset to the base.

    CAUTION

    Do not use paint thinner, benzene,

    alcohol, or other chemical products.

    Doing so may discolor the surface of the

    telephone and damage the finish.

Phone says searching


Bring the handset that says searching into the same room as the base and see if the handset stops searching. Next unplug the handset batteries (yes from all handsets) and the base power cord (from both the base and the wall outlet). Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the batteries and base power cord. Next try to de-register and then re-register the handsets. (If you add a comment with the phone model, I'll help you with this step. Uniden has the manuals for their phones on their site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .)

If this doesn't help, next try a new battery (and make sure that the battery is fully charged) for the phone. (If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden. Note: batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. This includes the time on the shelf in the package.)

If a new battery doesn't help, then there is something wrong with the handset. Decide if it is worth having the unit fixed if the phone is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that both handsets are cordless. If you have a corded/cordless model, then check that the base has power before you go farther with the above diagnostics. The power brick should be warm. We had a cordless phone on a power strip (UPS) that got turned off. The handset was searching for a signal that wasn't being sent. If you have power to the base, try sending the Find Handset message. The problem could be either the base or the handset not sending and receiving the signals between them.)

Can the phones be left in the chargers continously?


Yes....in fact it's best to return the handset back to the cradle after use.

This is what Uniden says about battery life.


(With average use, your handset battery provides more than ten hours of talk time and approximately seven days

of standby time. You can achieve optimum battery life and performance by returning the handset to the base or

charging cradle after each use. When your handset is left off of the cradle, the battery will gradually discharge even

if the handset is not being used. The actual talk time duration will be reduced in proportion to the amount of time the
handset is off of the cradle.)

Hand set wont hold charge,can only make a short phone call after being on charger all night. Hset 1 or 2 or time not showing on face


If you had your handset for a while, then try replacing the 'standard' AAA rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries (same or higher and better current 'mA' ratings) as they have a finite life span and will gradually loose the ability to retain charges over times (typical symptom is they appear full and after a few minutes use, they are completely depleted).
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Is it possible to buy a power adapter for uniden cordless N32 for the main phone model wdect2355+2 also if available the cost WDECT wideband digital


You can purchase power adapters at this link:
www.lcdpayless.com. On upper left of page search for Uniden wdect power adapter. The price is $9.99.

I found a Uniden wdect 3355+1 (two handsets; one on answering machine and one stand alone). this is a wideband (64kbps-2mbps) phone/ans. mach. It's priced at $149.95 at Yahoo shoping. The wdect2355 that you have apparently is no longer offered.

Please let me know if this is a satisfactory answer.

We have two handsets, and neither will hold a charge, despite being in the cradle, with the charging icon lit up the whole time. At first one would charges, and the other not, now neither will hold more...


Sounds like the handsets work fine aside from inability to hold a charge.

Which to remedy that it sounds like the factory shipped the product with el cheapo batteries that needs replaced.

I'll not degrade brand names here but it's became a quiet common issue lately.

Uniden cordless handsets don't hold charge


Have you tried replacing the batterys with new rechargables? if not open up the back and replace old batterys with new ones, just see if it works with a normal non rechargable batterys if it does buy some new rechargable, other than that your base i.e. charger may be faulty most likely it is the batterys.

Both handsets of the new 2801 we bought will not maintain charge


This condition is usually caused by a battery that has been charged too much or incorrectly. It has developed a memory and now can only hold a very small charge. I believe it is time for new batteries!

I have a Panasonic KX-TG6051CM


I had the same problem, and it seems that the battery charging circuit in the handset had locked up, constantly charging the battery until it overheated. I was able to reset the circuit in my handset by completely draining the battery. Here is the procedure:

1. Remove the handset from the charging cradle, and leave it on for a few days until the battery runs out, and the handset finally turns off. At his point, the battery will be very low, BUT NOT COMPLETELY DRAINED.

2. Next, you must manually drain the charge remaining in the battery by shorting out the two contacts on it. Shorting won't damage the battery, since it is holding very little charge at this point. An easy way to physically do this is to remove the battery, and place a piece of thin wire across the the two contacts of the HANDSET. I am referring to the contacts inside the handset that connect to the battery, NOT the contacts on the bottom outside that connect the handset to the charging cradle. Next, put the battery back in, sandwiching the wire between the battery's contacts and those inside the handset. This will hold the wire in place. DO NOT PUT THE HANDSET BACK INTO THE CHARGER, WITH THE BATTERY SHORTED OUT.

3. Wait about 30 minutes for the battery to completely die. Remove the jumper wire, and but the handset back into the charger.

4. If the battery was fully discharged , you will get a message on the handset telling you that you should let it will charge for 7 hours. If you do not get this message, then either the battery was not fully discharged, or your problem is different from mine. Try the procedure again in Step 3 for another 30 minutes to discharge the battery some more.

5. If you get the "Wait for 7 hours to charge" message on the handset, then leave it in the charging cradle for the 7 hours requested. After that, it should work fine.

Let me know how you make out.
