    Thanks for your suggestions; however, I do not have the technical expertise to conduct the repairs. Can someone at fixya repair or recommend a repair facility or person in the U.S. zip code 30253?

    Bottom half of numbers do not appear on clock.

    Phone works fine. It appears that the LED lights have burnt out but have no idea if or how they can be replaced.

Sometimes the "squiggly forms of numbers" appear due to poor battery.
Try changing the battery.
It should work now

Hi there,

i would recommend going back to Amazon.com. i am sure they have their own return/warranty policy and since they are reputable company, i would suspect they stand behind products they sell.

i agree that the lcd needs to be replaced, as it is its own module/circuit board but most of the time if the replacement part is not covered under warranty, it ends up costing as much as a new unit.

find out your options from where you purchased it from first, before you do anything else.

good luck.

Hi,

Your post indicates that the clock display and its controlling circuitry is messed up. In most designs this is a replaceable module and normally is stand along meaning the other parts of the device would still work. Being a refurbished unit, you may have to reconsider your options if you are contemplating having it repaired.

Should you on the other hand consider a DIY (do-it-yourself), pls be reminded of safety precautions when working with electrical devices. Of course this would also require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to a service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage measurements would make the diagnosis a lot easier. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate your quick post/comment back. if you would be so kind as to go to the main page of FixYa by clicking on this link, there would be a space provided (rightside, halfway down) wherein you could enter your zipcode and click on the "Go" key. On the page that will be displayed, pls click on the Clock radios underneath Personal Audio. there would be several repair facilities and you could choose the nearest.

    Alternately, you could try your friendly neighborhood electronics service center.

If you purchased it a few months ago refurbished or not it is still under the manufacturer warranty. I would contact AT&T about warranty service/replacement

Changing the time on a Norstar system must be done using a display phone. Using a M7310, M7324, or T7316 the right 2 buttons under the display are "NEXT" and "SHOW" respectively.

1.- To enter programming mode press "FEATURE" and "* * 2 6 6 3 4 4"
2.- Enter password (default = 266344) - display should read "Terminals & Sets"

Uniden TRU888 5.8 Digital Phone Display no longer lights up


I purchased this model phone as a refurb item and also had display blanking out issues. Mine related to a problem with the battery, which new batteries fixed. Try swapping the batteries between handsets and see if the fault moves to the other handset, which will prove if it is a battery problem. Otherwise, it would seem to be an internal fault in that handset. Try and arrange repair/replacement from the seller.
