Hello Lynn:

Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the telephone base. Plug the telephone base into a different working electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch. Move the handset closer to the telephone base. It may be out of range. Reset the telephone base by unplugging the electrical power to the base. Wait for 15 seconds and plug it back in again. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset and the telephone base to synchronize. Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT phones can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.

Do not disturb or silent mode may have been enabled. Without the model number of your phone, I might miss one of the ways to re-enable ringing for your model. Make sure that the phone is in standby mode. Next, check if there is a DND button on the base for the cordless phone system. If the LED for the button is lit, press that button. You may need to hold the button; enabling Do Not Disturb requires a press and hold.

To disable silent mode, press and hold Silent on either the handset or the base. On the handsets, this may be the # key (below the 9). When you enable Silent Mode, you can get a prompt for how long you want the phone to be quiet. If you do not press any number key (other than 0), the Silent Mode will last until you disable it manually. You can then confirm the Silent Mode or it will be enabled after 5 seconds.

I hope this helps. In both modes, the answering system will automatically be turned on if it wasn't on before enabling the mode.

A completed discharged battery yields a solid red light. A blinking red light means the battery has not yet received enough of a charge to operate the phone. You need to leave it on the charger longer, perhaps a half hour or more, for this blinking to cease.

It all depends on the location. Being VHF and not using a repeater or external antenna, the range is likely less than 10 miles. Using a repeater you might get 50 miles or more. If you are thinking long range communications, you really need an HF transceiver. VHF is essentially for local communications.

The Uniden XDECT 8315 does not have an answering machine. It will check your voice mail. Setting that greeting depends on your telephone service provider. Check your provider's voice mail FAQ.

To have your XDECT 8315 get your voive mail messages, press Message and then select Voice Mail. Then follow the prompts to enter your voice mail access number. Alternatively, you can press Menu > Global Menu Settings > Edit Voice Mail. See pages 17 and 32 of the manual. (See the link below.)

The manual for the XDECT 8315 is available on the product page: https://uniden.com.au/product/xdect-8315-1/ . The current link to the manual is https://uniden.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/XDECT_83151_OM.pdf .

If you do not have voice mail from your telephone company, you can add a stand-alone answering machine. Just make sure to connect the answering machine to the telephone jack. Then connect the answering machine RJ-11 out to the telephone's RJ-11 jack on the base.

I hope this helps.

If you need to change the greeting then you should use custom greeting to suit your needs. Go to Menu and then settings for answering system go to greetings and it should give you instruction.

If you get clear audio when close to the receiver, it would appear to be a problem in either the antenna or the receiver. Try a different antenna or relocate the antenna. If you adjusted the VSWR low it doesn't mean the power is radiating correctly. Verticals should be on roof, with roof as ground plane. Mounting on mirrors is ok, but doesn't work as well. Also, if you have sheet metal near the antenna, it acts as a ground reflector and can distort or block the waveform. You might also try it with a different receiver, in case yours has a faulty pre-amp stage. It could also be a power amplifier problem in the transmitter, where it shows 5 watts but isn't putting out that amount. You can check it with an RF watt meter.

one if these old land line thing-a-bobs>?
LAND LINES:? sure it is.
