Is it possible that the batteries on my year old Uniden DXA15588-2 Cordless phone are dead. The answering machine will play a message. There is no dial tone. I have both units in the cradle and both charge lights are working.

The answering part of the machine will probably work as it is powered by the phone company circuit. If you do not put batteries in the BASE unit, it is line powered and will continue to work if batteries are dead. However, your handsets will not work, they will not ring and you will get no dial tone as they will not transmit a signal . A hint is to replace the batteries with new nickel-metal hydride batteries to assure long battery life if you have replaceable battery capability. Mine have lasted 10 years so far and still going strong!
When there is no dial tone the problem could be dead batteries in your handsets, or an unplugged base, or a problem with the phone lines outdoors [which only the phone company can fix]. Check your phone first, then make sure the base is plugged in. If all is ok with your phone then call the phone company and tell them you have no dial tone. Regards, Joe
PS please rate my answer. Thank you.
I am still in need of a solution. It is not a 2 phone (cordless) it is 1 and know I have not solved the problem, I was hoping you would be able to help. I am not interested in purchasing anything other than what I already have.
Please help me resolve my problem, it doesn't sound like anyone has looked at or reviewed it. Thank you
the circut inside is acting up and will need repair, this can happen whenthe batterys are low in the phones and the base does not detect them , also the detect circut coud be bad , and or the automatic pick up circut for the answering machine
