How do I reset the Line mode on a uniden 7055 series phone. I think this is the problem

Phone rings, grab handset, nothing there, grab another handset and answer and I can sometimes catch the call. It often says line in use sometimes, often, Welcome, please wait driving me nuts running from phone to phone and often missing the call.

Same thing was happening to my phone...Welcome! Please wait... After at least 40 hours of charging I was getting a little fed up. I picked up the handset, took a ball point pen and pushed the "activation" area on the bottom the phone...heard a it is working. I don't think the tiny pin that comes with the phone activates the phone properly.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

SOURCE: I just bought the waterproof

When you received your phone, there is a black button on the bottom of the phone with a note to "press here before use." You will notice that between the phone and the button there is a piece of cardboard to prevent the phone from being activated during shipment. Remove the cardboard and insert the black pin all the way into the small hole in the base of the handset. Tthis will activate your phone. Charge the phone for a full 24 hours after inserting the black button and activating the phone. The phone does not charge at all until the black button is completely inserted into the base of the phone.

It's even simpler than previously solved; The system administrator can correct this for you in a simple programming change. In the form Multiline set key assignment change the ring type from "No Ring" to "Ring" that's it, done! (I hope you enjoy the digs).

My Uniden Dect 6.0 telephone system is going straight to answer bank and not ringing. I am unable to find the manual and would appreciate your help with this problem. Thankyou

Uniden phones have one of two options to keep the handsets from ringing. These can be toggled on and off with the phone system in standby.

Most likely, you have toggled the "Do Not Disturb" mode on your Uniden DECT phone. This mode will ensure that none of the handsets ring on the cordless phone. On models with an answering system, it is automatically turned on when this mode is in use. It will pick up after the preset number of rings. If you hadn't set the number of rings,

Disabling the DND depends on the phone model. On some, to disable the DND mode, press and hold the # key (below 9) for 3+ seconds. When you toggle the mode on, you can tell the system how long to silence the rings (1-9 hours or always on). If you do not press a digit, the always on option will be selected. If you press DND again, the mode starts. Otherwise, it becomes active after 5 seconds.

A few models have the DND button on the base. Again press and hold that button to deactivate the Do Not Disturb feature.

On other Uniden cordless phones, you can only silence one handset at a time. This silent mode is toggled on and off by holding the appropriate key. (This is usually the # or 9 key and will have a second symbol on the key.)

I will assume that you do not have a muted ringer on the phone handsets. If the mute is enabled, just press Volume + when the phone is not in use.

I hope this helps. If you need more specific directions, please add a comment with the phone model number. With that information, I may be able to find the manual as a PDF. One useful source of Uniden DECT phone manuals is . Manuals Lib ( ) or Google are also good places to search for manuals.

Turning the ringer on my phone. uniden 6.0

Without the model number of your Uniden phone, I don't know which silencing feature you are dealing with.

Some Uniden handsets have a Silent Mode. To toggle this on and off, press and hold the # key (below 9) for 5+ seconds when the phone isn't in use. When the silent mode is enabled, the handset will ask for a length of time for the 'no-ring' option. If no key is pressed, then the Silent Mode will continue until the # key is held again.

Other Uniden phones have Do Not Disturb. The button to enable/disable this will be on the cordless phone base. The answering system will automatically turn on and none of the handsets will ring when this feature is enabled.

You can also set the ringer volume to zero. Depending on the phone, you can reset this by pressing the volume up/down buttons or going through the menu. Look for the Ringer Volume in the same section of the menu as the Ring Tone options.

If you need additional information, please add a comment with the model of your phone. I hope this helps.

How do i turn off silent mode?

Which specific Uniden phone do you have? On the Uniden D1780, pressing the volume down button several times will turn off the ringer. With the phone in Standby, press the volume up button.
A different model, the D2180, has a Do Not Disturb button on the base. Press the button to allow the handsets to ring.

Other models toggle on and off the Silent mode by pressing and holding the # (pound key). I think it takes 3-5 seconds for the key to toggle the mode on or off.

Most manuals for the Uniden phones are available here: . Use the drop-down menu to select DECT phones, if you have one of them. The manuals are listed in alphanumeric order. Ignore the suffix; the manuals are the same even when the phone was sold with more handsets.

I hope this helps.

Reset the units/set up by doing the following:

  • Remove the batteries of the HANDSETS.
  • Unplug the power source of the BASE.
  • Unplug the phone line of the BASE.
  • Let it stay that way for 30 mins.
  • Insert the battery again of the HANDSETS, make sure it is charged properly.
  • Plug back the power source of the BASE.
  • Plug back the phone line to the BASE.
  • Register any handset that is unregistered (refer to manual).

Keep me posted.

How do i turn off the silent mode on a uniden phone, ive held down the # sign and nothings happening

Silent Mode
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.

Caller ID doesn't display and phone rings 1 time then stops

The Uniden TRU9XXX series has a high level of handset compatibility between bases. Depending on the handsets you bought to go with your 9480, you may be able to buy another model in the series and use the old handsets with the new model. Alternatively, you could buy another 9480 here (the -2 on the end of your model number just means that it came with an extra handset).

Before you do that, though, it might pay to hook up a regular (corded) caller ID-enabled phone to the line and see what happens there when you call. If it works properly, go buy your new phone. However, if you see the same behavior there as with the Uniden, chances are that the problem is not with the phones. Possible other causes could include a fax machine, modem, or other device in-line with the phone; a defective piece of equipment hooked up elsewhere in your house; etc. If nothing obvious applies, you might want to give the phone company another call--just because they couldn't find a problem on their end doesn't mean one doesn't exist.
