Question about Uniden DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone Expansion Handset

Open Question

We have a Uniden Dect 6.0 system: a base unit plus and extension unit. Every few days the phone rings at 3:30 am for one brief ring. It's not long enough to trigger caller ID, and it doesn't even light up the phone. The phone company can't help us. Is there any chance this is a hardware issue of some kind? Thank you!

SOURCE: uniden dect 6.0 caller id light wiil not go out

I am not aware of any Uniden phone that has a "Caller ID" light. If you are talking about the small red LED on the top of the handset, that is a voice mail indicator and can be triggered by either a voice mail being held by your telephone service provider (Called Call Notes by some of the "bell" companies) or an unheard message on the telephones internal answering machine. Most of the time this is due to a voice mail on your service provider. If you don't think you have Voice Mail from your telephone service provider, call them and make sure, now days they include it with a bunch of other features without you ever asking for it. If you do not have voice mail through your telephone provider and there are no new messages on your answering machine, follow the Reset VMWI indicator procedures in your owners manual availible at http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat+1

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 https://www.uniden.com.au/uniden-search/ . Manuals Lib ( manualslib.com ) or Google are also good places to search for manuals.

How do I turn off the silent mode on a Uniden 6.0 dect phone, so it will ring?


For the Uniden model D1680 & similar...

You ENTER "Silent Mode" by pressing and
holding the [ # ] key on the handset for a few
seconds until the display reads "Please Wait".
It will (chirp) and display "Silent Mode ON".

You can EXIT "Silent Mode" by pressing and
holding the [ # ] key on the handset for a few
seconds until the display reads "Please Wait".
It will (chirp) and display "Handset #".

Another easy way to end "Silent Mode" is to go
to the BASE and press the [ANS ON/OFF]
button to turn off the answering machine system.
(Push the [ans] button, do not unplug the power)

"Silent Mode" will clear a moment later while the
control voice tells you "Answering System is OFF"
Now you can again turn on the answering machine
system as desired.

Good luck!

Hello.

From FixYa Support:

- unplug base unit for 15 seconds

- handset display will prompt you to press and hold PAGE button on base unit for 5 seconds, then press "PROGRAM" button on handset

Perform steps for each handset. You may need to plug base unit and unplug for each handset.

Hope this helps.

We just bought a new uniden phone system and the Answering Machine keeps answering the phone after 2 rings. I set the base machine setting to answer after 6 rings but it didn't change.


If you have changed the setting on the base station and that did not work, power your base station off completely and try again if that does not work you have an out of box defect and need to exchange it.

You can set the number of rings through the base unit's menu. See the manual for details. Lost it? Go to www.uniden.com and download one.

Uniden DECT 6.0 2080-2 rings for no reason


These DECT 6.0 phones work on 1.9 Ghz frequency and should not have any interference other than from another DECT 6.0 phone that can be within 150 ft of your phone. That means that somebody, a neighbor that has a DECT 6.0 phone close by is causing this problem. It also means that they are also getting these phantom phone rings. The best solution? Go to a 5.8 Ghz phone and your problem should go away.
