Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Constant static and interference

I have the VTech 5.8 GHz Cordless phone and there is constant static when in use. I have to stand right by the base to be able to have a conversation. I've used a DSL line filter but noticed no difference. I have electrical appliances so I'm guessing there is interference there. Should I move the base to a remote bedroom where there are fewer electrical devices? Static

I have found that dimmer switches might be the cause your problem. If you have any around the house you may want to change them to a regular switch.
To test to see if this is the cause, turn all your dimmer switches completely off (not just turned down). See if it clears your static issue.

Phone has been charging but still won't turn on


Let me suggest that you unplug all stations including the base and disconnect base from phone line. Waite 5 minutes and then plug base station into phone line, and plug all units in again. Most have an automatic procedure of finding all the remotes if yours has manual method do that.

Constant static and interference


VTech products are generally poorly designed and manufactured. You can probably notice the FCC Warnings on the device that say that you must accept all interference that you may recieve while in use. Go out, splurge a little, and find a telephone made by a well known company like Panasonic, Sony, etc.

We have Vtech phones - Modes : i6785/6786 which we purchased last 4/30/07 and they are and have a lot of static - why. Can hardly hold a conversation.


try using a corded phone(borrow one if you don't have one) see if problem is on phone line. Cordless amplify static on a phone line. If static is not on the corded try relocating the base of cordless.

FIRST YOU MUST DETERMINE IF THERE IS STATIC ON YOUR PHONE LINE. EVEN WITH DSL THERE CAN BE STATIC EVEN IF THE INTERNET IS WORKING. IF YOU HAVE A CORDED PHONE TAKE IT OUT TO THE PHONE INTERFACE BOX AND OPEN THE BOX / THERE SHOULD BE A PLACE YOU CAN UNPLUG YOUR WIRING FROM THE PHONE COMPANY. PLUG YOUR PHONE INTO WHERE YOU UNPLUGGED THE WIRING AND SEE IF YOU HAVE STATIC THERE. IF YOU STILL HEAR STATIC IT IS THE PHONE COMPANY'S PROBLEM.

SOMETIMES UNPLUGGING FROM BOTH THE PHONE LINE AND THE POWER SOURCE AND REMOVING THE BATTERIES WILL CORRECT SOME PROBLEMS. FOR SECOND PHONES ON A SYSTEM THEY MUST BE REGISTERED TO THE BASE. ONCE IT IS REGISTERED IT SHOULD SHOW A NUMBER IN CORNER OF SCREEN (2)
THE MANUAL SHOULD TELL YOU HOW TO REGISTER SETS. IF YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MANUAL SEE IF YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ONE FROM THE WEB SITE OR CALL VTECH 1-800-595-9511

This model of phone have serious problem regarding the battery. This phone use a lot of juice out of the battery. I'm pretty sure that when your battery is foul charge it doesn't do it. So the problem is in the handset. When your battery starting to get to low you loose your connection. Why?...Because the detection to LOW_BATT in your handset is not calibrate adequately. So it thinks that the batt is weak, to weak to make a conversation.

The other problem could be that your handset doesn't really foul charge your battery. So when you are to far from the base or talking for to long . There's not enough power in the battery to raise the output signal level(db) to your base.

Vtech phones loosing connection to base


You are pretty close to the solution. The problem is the charge detection in the handset. All handsets on a cordless phone detect the battery level with an hexadecimal value in the memory. Each hex value equal a volt value of the battery. EX: 3.5v = 9B
3.6v = 9C 3.7v =9D etc... The problem is the hex value in your defective handset are all mess up. So 9B is not 3.5v anymore. Then your handset could last 1hr after foul charge or doesn't alert you before the phone goes dead due to low BAtt.
