Question about Uniden 5.8GHz Dual Cordless Phone

Buzzing in both phones

I just recently started having a buzzing in both phones. The noice is so loud that you can hardly hear the other party when talking to them. The problem is not in the phone lines since I have tried another cordless (Panasonic) to those phone lines and no problem. Also, I just put new batteries (fully charged) in both phones and still a loud buzzing sound. The phones are approximately three years old.

Thanks

    I don't think that the buzz is a reminder of anything such as a message or missed call. The phone does not have a alert feature that I know of.

    Thanks

  • omcjwc Aug 18, 2008

    Don't think that the problem is in the antennas as the antennas are rigid and have not been bent or broken.

    Thanks

    Problem still not solved.

  • omcjwc Aug 18, 2008

    The problem is not is the phone wiring or the telephone jack. I have used another portable phone, Panasonic, using the same wiring and jack, and do not have the buzzing on that phone.

    Thanks

Have you tried the previously suggested solution of changing which channel the phones are set to?

The buzz sound may be due to interference on the signal from wireless device,bluetooth,infra red,computer ,electronic devices ,so you can isolate the phone phone from this devices or change location where you have low interference and see the effect

    Cordless telephones use radio frequencies and have no FCC protection from interference. If you are receiving nearby transmissions on a cordless phone your only recourse is to contact the manufacturer for assistance. good luck

    Perhaps its an external intereference result. So try to move base to another location, or take away any other electrical appliance from phone base and test again its operation.

This answer is straight from Uniden.

The first thing you want to ensure is that the phone is not near any major electronics or appliances. Make sure that the phone is not tied in with a computer, fax, remote answering machine, splitter or caller id box.

Try pressing the channel button on the handset (if applicable to your product). On DCT models turn clarity boost on.

Make sure base unit antenna is in an upright position (if applicable to your product). If your handset does not have an antenna then make sure you are not holding the phone to where you are covering the internal antenna.

Try moving the phone to a different phone jack and outlet. If you have any other cordless phones in your home, try unplugging all of the phones except for the Uniden and see if there is a difference.

Finally, if you have computer accessories such as DSL, Wireless Network or Router these could interfere with the phone as well.

Hi,

im working on your problem,

the batteries are not the problem for sure,

have you thought of this loud buzzer being just a reminder of some function of your phone?

such as message, missed phonecalls, maybe an alert (if phone features this function)


im working on you!
good luck

Our line one cuts out even when we're talking on it & we can just barely hear the person on the line but they can hear us clearly. We have unplugged the phone's power cord & plugged it back in...


I have the same sort of problem...kinda..lol. My Vtech sorta 'cuts out' when there is noise at my hosue. The person I'm talking to can still hear me but I can't hear them. If my son starts crying or there's any other loudish type noises on my end, it's like the phone is trying to cutout my background noise, but all it's cutting out is the person talking to me. It's not that the noises in my house are loud and I jsut can't hear the person I"m talking to, b/c if i cover the mouth peice then no matter how loud the sound in my house is i can still hear the person i'm talking to but I HAVE to keep the mouth peice covered. It's really annoying!

There is a very loud buzzing on the phone when talking. Does this mean the battery needs replacing?


Because the cordless phones use radio frequencies to receive / transmit what you say and hear, it also picks up other radio interference. I sujest you move the hand set or base station away from other mains operated equipment as this will interfer with your phones.

Very loud buzzing


The sound can also be caused by a faulty outside line. You can bring in a different telephone (like one at your house) and see if the buzzing sound disappears. If not its either a line problem or a jack/wire problem.

How do i increase the volume ob the receiver,not the ringer volume ,voice while speaking as i cant hear the other party loud enough


When you are talking on the phone (or listening to a dial tone), the volume control works to control the volume of the receiver. When the phone is not being used, the volume control is used to control the volume of the ringer.

Loud buzzing while other phone is on base. Switching phones on base has no effect on issue. Taking phone off base hitting 'talk' helps with issue, but buzzing returns upon placement on base..


did you have "buzzing" Before these phones? Anything electrical fan etc on the same circut breaker of your house?. Or buzzing start recently with these already running. It sounds like your describing "electrical noise" and not really a issue with the phoned them selves. Try relocating the base if you have another open wall jack and on another circut. If you notice it goes away check whats all on that circut (wall outlet) that you unplugged the base from. depending on the noise or lack of at the new location it would probly be something running on there. ..
Hope this gives ya a solid start on a fix :)

Beeping on the other party's phone while a blank space on the owner's side


Ted, The blank space you hear is the phone sending a digit to the other end. The person you are talking to hears this tone. The voice mail also hears the tone. That is why it is responding to you. First try pulling the battery out of the phone and wait about 20 seconds. Then reconnect the battery. I would also while the battery is out take a contact cleaner and a q tip and clean around the push buttons. If it persists your battery may be going dead. Replace it with a good one.
