I have a Uniden Power Max 5.8 and once in a while the phone will ring but I can't hear the party on the other end of the line. Does any one else have this problem? If so is there any way to correct this problem?

Uniden cordless phone caller id quit working


Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists
Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information.
Caller ID list



Redial list



When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the

CID list.
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.


Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.

My phone dials too fast. The only way I can dial a number is by taking it off the hook and manually dialing after I hear the dial tone. If I use Caller ID, redial, directory, or putting in the number...


I had the same problem with a model 6325-4. Worked fine for the first week. Then, tone dial with redial, directory, etc was too fast for system to register the number.
Called Vtech support. After a 15 hold, 5 minute explanation and tech listening to a reproduction of problem over the phone, she asked that I perform a complete system reset (I called via my cell).
I unplugged power from base first, then removed battery from all hand sets. Powered down for ~3 minutes (with tech waiting on line the entire time).
I powered up base first and then reconnected all handsets. Selected a handset at random and performed the same dial from directory test I had done just before power down. The thing worked again. Call went through just fine. Tried several other selections in directory with same positive results. Now, if the system just stays stable and working.
Hope this helps..

HOW TO USE RECALL KEY OR HOW TO USE THE REDIAL FUNCTION


Don't confuse the two. In most systems, the RECALL button gives you new dial tone on the line you're currently on, and the REDIAL function will dial the last number dialed or a saved number.

Since you're asking about a phone and did not list the SYSTEM, if you set has Last Number (LNR) or just redial, when you press the button, it will either try to use the last line dialed, or you may have to select an outside line and get a dial tone, then press the LNR button. It will dial out. If you press the RECALL button, it will drop your present call and give you new dial tone without having to hang up, pick up the handset, and select a line. You may actually have to press both buttons to effect a LNR sequence.

Automatic redial malfunction


It's been a long time since I have used Panasonic analog phones, but the redial function in them used to be mechanical. It dialed 15 times with a 45 second pause between attempts. The key was, it expected you to pick up the handset, cancelling the redial if you got an answer.
If you got an answer and didn't do anything, it hung up and redialed again until you picked up the handset!

Could that be what your system is doing?
