We bought this model phone and one day, for no reason I can find, the phone won't hang up. It holds the line open and no calls can be made or received. I returned the phone and got another of the same model. We've had the new one for about 3 months and now it is doing the same thing. This is two phones with the same problem in less than a year.
Any help out there?
I moved some furniture around after christmas and unplugged the phone to do so. Now it does what yours is doing. It needs to be re-set up as if I just bought it. Is it possible yours was unplugged? Suggest you start from scratch with the set-up manual. Personally, I can't find mine. I have the french and am translating it. I can't believe the nonsense I am going through just because I unplugged the stupid phone. Good luck.

I still need a model number, but if it's not possible and you reeeally want to use the cordless, if you have a modem in your computer, you can have it dial pulse, pick up the cordless, and hang up the modem......
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!)
The base unit should not need a charge. It should be powered by the plug in adapter. It may have a battery to keep operation for a short time in a power outage. The adapter may be loose, the adapter could be broken or the plug in the phone may be broken.
