Question about Uniden DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone Expansion Handset

Open Question

I just bought a new uniden dect 1480-4. I have charged it for over 15 hours, but the handset continues to say searching. The base and the handset are all together, however I am not getting a dial tone and it states searching for base. Before I return it is there something else I can do.

SOURCE: all lights on base are blinking, no dial tone

walk close to the base and check that the handset is working if it is try taking the battery out of the handset wait a moment and put it back in if that doesnt reset it you will have to look in your owners manual and see how to reset the hanset autherization so that the base will see it. if you down have a copy of the owners manual you can download a copy off the manufactuers website or manuals.com

Try placing the handset in the base unit to register it. Then see if it is found by the base.

SOURCE: uniden dect6.0 handsets do not operate

I am writing for my Mum, who is 99. We live far apart, so it is a bit difficult to fix her problem. She had a new Uniden DECT 60 (?) installed in early July. It seemed to be working fine when we left her, but she says it only rings twice before going to voice mail. She says it has always been like that. How can we fix this for her even though we live at a distance?.

No reception


Sounds like the radio in your base phone has quit working. Yes, you can buy another base but it has to be the same model s your existing one. After you get the new base follow the instruction in your users manual to unregister the old handset and then reregister them to the new base. Link to users manual

DECT 1480-4 Uniden Corless phone- how do you get rid of red LED lite ?


Do you mean the status light on the handset or the one on the base? The status light on the base will be on if the answering system is on. The handset status light will be on but steady when the handset is on the charger. (It's a battery charging indicator in that case; take the handset off the charger to stop the charging system. It provides a trickle charge to offset the battery discharging over time) The light blinks to indicate new messages are available on the answering system. Press the Play button on the base or the Messages/Mute button on the handset to play new messages.

Uniden offers the manuals for many of their phones on their support site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The direct link to the manual for the DECT-1480 is http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DECT1480-2om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have Uniden DECT1480-3. I purchased two expandable handsets, but I cannot figure out how to get the new handsets to register with the base unit.


Up to 6 handsets can be registered with the DECT 1480 phones. I have the 5 phone unit and needed to add the 6th phone. All I got was "Searching" in the display and the battery wouldn't even charge!

So here's what you have to do to get additional phones (up to 6 units) to work with the base. If you can get past step 1, it's a snap...

Step 1: Place a charged battery in the handset. This could be a problem if all your handsets are not registered, since unregistered phones don't charge (who thought of that design?). What I did was SWAP the battery from an already registered and charged phone with the new unregistered phone.

Step 2: Here's where the magic happens. Press the 'END' and '#' keys simultaneously... hold them down until a System Reset menu appears. Select "Deregister HS" and press Menu.

Step 3: Now, do the same thing again (hold down END and #), but this time select Base Unavailable and press Menu. You will see Base Unavailable Yes/No... Select Yes. Then place the handset in the base, wait a few seconds, and Voila!. it's registered. You can even change handset numbers using this menu if you play around with it.

Thank you, helpful employee at Costco for supplying the magic code. And hey there, UNIDEN... including this in the operation manual would have saved many customers much grief with de-registered phones!

Enjoy!

UNIDEN EXP7900 NEW BATTERY CHARGED, GREEN STATUS LIGHT ON, BUT CANNOT GET A DIAL TONE. THIS WAS AFTER THE PHONE HAD BEEN UNPLUGED FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS.


I have a Uniden DECT 6.0, 2 handset phone. I charged the batteries twice for at least 15 hours. I usually unplug the base at night and plug it back in in the morning. Both the phones lose their charge overnight. My old Uniden phone never lost its charge. Is this because the new batteries are smaller than the old ones? Are the batteries bad? I bought this phone from Ebay who said this was a brand new phone, box never opened. Thank you.
