Question about Uniden DECT 2080-5 Quint Phone
To turn off silent mode, press the "#" and hold down until it changes. :)
Posted on May 15, 2011
In standby mode pressing and holding # brings up the "Silent Mode" special feature (you actually need to repeat this action twice in succession for it to happen!) .. unfortunately the only options you are presented with to set the time for the device to be in silent mode and no way to turn if off. With my unit the solution is supposedly to press the # key again and hold it down, but this does not work either. The only way I can manually return to not be in "Silent Mode" is to reset the base unit!

Holding the # button wasn't working for me after many tries. Then, I just disconnected the battery in the phone. The mode reset and now rings!

I held the # sign down at least 5 different times and it still didn't turn off the Silent Mode. Then I walked down by the base unit and held the # sign down and it finally turned off.

When the silent mode is off, The screen will not say "Silent mode off". It will say Handset #1.. Or 2 maybe???, But not "silent mode is off"
Whatever... This is the confusion. You are expecting it to say "OFF". It will not.

Since you dont list which specifc model you have, I cannot list the specific manual. But here is a link to Uniden's list of manuals, you should be able to find yours here. http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat+1

SOURCE: UNIDEN DECT 6.0
DECT 6.0 is not a model number, it's the generic name for the cordless phone technology in use. So I can't give you a more specific link than this one, which takes you to Uniden's download page for manuals. Pick your model from the list, and the manual will explain the steps you'll need to follow. Your phone's model number is on a sticker normally found on the rear or bottom of the base unit.

Testimonial: "thank you very mucy "
To exit the silent mode, press and hold # on the handset for about 5 seconds. In the future, when you set the silent mode with this press and hold routine, you can follow it by a number (1-9) to set a specific length of time for the handset to be silent. Otherwise it will stay on until you manually turn it off.
The manual for the D1660 is available from http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/D1660-2om.pdf .
I hope this helps.
