Question about Uniden DCX770 for DMX700, DCT600 Cordless Expansion Handset

1 Answer

No dial tone...but can hear the tv

We have the Uniden 2.4 GHz, Model DCX700...base plus 2 expandable phones. We have the base phone sitting by the TV in the family room and one expanable base is on the other side of the room. We've had these phones for several months...sitting in these same spots. Suddenly yesterday, these phones aren't ringing nor do they have a dial tone. However, if you pick them up and hit "Talk", you can hear the TV through the phone. I know this sounds stupid...but it is TRUE! Any suggestions? NRaye

Move the Base unit away from the TV. Check if ADSL filter in use may need to replace one or all ADSL filters
2.4 GHZ hmmm do you have 802.11 BNG WI FI in use with any of your computers ???
2.4 Ghz is a problem as computer WI FI uses this frequency as well !
check the line cord is plugged in to the base unit
Check base has power

SOURCE: 2 uniden cordless phones aren't working

I don't know if this helps, but perhaps the problem is using two or more phones. On a whim, I charged a Uniden EXP 970 that my daughter gave me a few years ago. Charged right up and it has been working for about two days. I didn't think it would charge at all but to have it actually work, I was amazed!! Will post if it quits anytime soon.

FYI I bought two phones from AT&T, each around $200 and neither of them worked after a week. I was not happy! These less expensive phones seem to do a much better job!

SOURCE: Dial Tone but won't call out.

The problem was the main phone line not the phone itself

SOURCE: can't talk on both phone at same time. second on is always dead.

The DXI4286-2 is an Analog phone, it does not allow for both handset to be used at the same time. You can transfer a call from one handset to another, but cannot talk on both at the same time.
The following is from the user's manual for your phone:

Unavailable message is displayed
on the LCD screen of the
handset.
• Make sure the other handset is not already in use. Both handsets cannot be in talk mode at the
same time.
• Place the handset in the main base for at least 5 seconds to re-register to the main base.
• Make sure the handset is not too far from the main base when trying to use.

You might want to try one of the DECT or a Digital 2.4 or 5.8 GHz phones, they allow you to use multiple handsets at the same time.

I have Uniden DCX700 phone- how do I turn the ringer on and off?

The DCX700 is an expansion handset for several different Uniden phones (DCT746, DCT748). To change the volume of the ringer, press the Vol + or Vol - button with the unit in Standby (not making calls). There are three ringer volumes: Off, Low and High. Pressing the Volume buttons will let you cycle through the list. The volume buttons are to the left of Talk below the LCD screen.

You can temporarily mute the ringer by pressing Mute while the phone is ringing.

The manual for the DCT746 is here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DCT746Mom.pdf . All Uniden cordless phone manuals are available in numerical and alphabetical order here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl . The manual for the DCX700 handset (with registration information) is here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DCX700om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

No dial tone. No calls. Can't call out.

E4 IS AN ERROR MESSAGE, THE BASE IS NO LONGER GOING TO WORK, POSSIBLY A POWER OUTAGE COULD OF DAMAGED THE BASE.

Phone won't hang up

I solved this exactly problem by doing this:
1) unplug base station from phone line
2) unplug base station from power cube
3) open each phone and disconnect battery (do not replace phone in charger; just let it sit)
4) wait 30 minutes (per instructions from Uniden)
5) reconnect batteries in phone sets
6) reconnect power cube to base station
7) reconnect base station to phone line
8) test: make a call. Hang up. Wait one minute. Pick up line and see if you get a dial tone.
(Basically you're "rebooting" the system. You don't know where the fault lies, so you power down every component to make sure you get it. The '30 minutes' is longer than I'm used to, but after being on hold with Uniden tech support for 20 minutes and finally getting through, the instructions from them were very clear: AT LEAST 30 minutes. OK! I did it - and it worked!)

No dial tone on handset

It may not be registed with the main unit. You may need to register the handset. With my uniden all i have to do is put it in the main base until it says what handset it is (it should be a number).

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

Motorola MD761 5.8 GHz phone

Change the channel on the base or the phones. That should fix the problem.
