Question about Uniden D1660 Cordless Phone
The silent mode is turned on and I want to know how to turn it off
You can silence the ringers on the base and all handsets for a specific period of time; the answering system answers any incoming calls without playing anything through the speaker.
With the phone in standby, press and hold # on any handset. The phone prompts you to select the number of hours (1 - 9 or Always On) that you want it to stay in silent mode.
To confirm, press # or just wait about 5 seconds. The phone turns on the answering system and displays Silent Mode On on each handset.After the selected number of hours, the phone automatically exits silent mode. To exit silent mode manually, press and hold # again.
If the phone is in silent mode and you turn off the answering system, the phone exits silent mode.
Multihandset Features To use the features in this section, you need at least 2 handsets.
Your base supports a total of 12 cordless handsets: the one that came with the base and up to 11 DCX160 accessory handsets.You must register accessory handsets to the base before using them. (Handsets that came packaged with the base are already registered.)Handsets that aren't registered display a Not Registered message. For registration instructions, see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.If a handset was ever registered to a base, you must reset it before it can register to a new base; see p. 18, or see the accessory handset manual.Conference Calling
When an outside call comes in, two handsets can join in a conference call with the outside caller.
To join a call that's already in progress, just press Talk/flash or SpeSpeSpeaker.To leave the conference call, hang up normally; the other handset remains connected to the call.

To exit the silent mode, press and hold # on the handset for about 5 seconds. In the future, when you set the silent mode with this press and hold routine, you can follow it by a number (1-9) to set a specific length of time for the handset to be silent. Otherwise it will stay on until you manually turn it off.
The manual for the D1660 is available from http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D1660-2om.pdf .
I hope this helps.

In standby mode pressing and holding # brings up the "Silent Mode" special feature .. unfortunately the only options are to set the time for the device to be in silent mode and no way to turn if off. The solution is supposedly to press the # key again and hold it down, but this does not work either. The only way I can manually return to not be in "Silent Mode" is to reset the base unit!!

Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 phone, I can only suggest that you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

You can silence the ringers on the base and handsets at the same time. It doesn't affect the visual ringer on the phone in standby, press and hold Silent on the base. The phone automatically turns on the answering system and shows Do Not Disturb in the display on handset. (The answering system answers any incoming calls without playing anything through the speaker.)To cancel, press Silent again. If you turn the answering system off while Silent Mode is on, the phone turns off Silent Mode.
