Question about AT&T E580-2 Cordless Expansion Handset

AT&T E580-2 5.8 GHz Does not Charge

I have a AT&T E580-2 5.8 GHz full Color Cordless Handset and does not charge the batteries. I have changed the batteries three times and also I have tried charging the telephone in another charger (I have more than one handset) but the only thing it does is a periodic click sound but it does not charge the batteries.
Any suggestions? or is it a lost cause?.

    I have the same problem. I am trying to buy a new one but they are discontinued and AT&T is charging a prohibitive price to replace it.

    I have the same probem. The phone cost $75 fout years ago, but now
    it goes for $330. Everything works except for charging. I can probably
    fix it, if I could only find service data (or, at least, a schematic).

SOURCE: AT&T 2230 2.4 GHz Dual Handset Cordless Phone - additional phones?

Hi yes you can add additional phones to it as long as their the same frequency so that they pick up the signal from the main phone that plugs into the phone line.
Im sure you can have upto 4 handsets but just make sure theis same make and frequency

I know that these were good phones, but time marches on. I would search the web to see if you can find one for sale. Try to Google and see if you can find one. But I think you might as well look at some newer models. Prices have lowered and there are many improvements now. The newest ones out are dect and they pickup less interferance.

My uniden waterproof phone does not charge.


Make sure charging indicator showing charge, if so! the battery will need to be replaced, try and get the genuine replacement because there have been problems reported with aftermarket batteries not working in the phones due to the specifications not matching the genuine product.

New out of the box wont power on


Hi.. Let me try to help you if I can... I'd like you to check a few things,

1) Open battery cover on handset & make sure that the battery pack is installed correctly, and not upside down. Also make sure the little wires that come from battery pack are plugged into the tiny jacks of the phone (usualy red & black wires) in handset is fully attached & pushed snuggly into the handset... and if No wires, check to ensure the part that does connect the battery to handset is not covered with a plastic film of tape or paper as right from a manufacturer they sometimes do that to preserve length of battery until product is sold to you..

2) Check the bottom of the handset phone, that sit in the cradle of the electric part of the recharger, and make sure there is nothing like plastic or paper covering the connections between the bottom of the handset and the charger. Make sure there is a full on connection for a full charge to the handset. As with some cordelss phones Ive had the red LED light will not come on if there is something blocking a full connection for a charge.. The red LED light on base, only comes on when the electricity is flowing into the handset. The slightest tilt not allowing handset a full charge, wont give it a FULL charge.

3) You say " NEW. Out Of The Box" I hope when you connected the battery pack into the handset, and made sure it was connected right, you then allowed handset to charge at least a FULL 12 -24 hours before trying to use your new cordless phone. as the batteries right out of the box, are rarely already fully charged when any cordless phone is bought and then it does need 12 - 24 hours for a FIRST FULL CHARGE...

If you can check all 3 of these questions, and let me know how things are back on this posting, if you stilll can not solve the problem after a full charge to battery, I may have some other ideas that can help.

Good Luck

Will uniden 6.0 handest work with an existing 5.8 system? I have an 5.8 system for about 4 years I think the handset cordless is not holding a charge so I would like to purchase additional cordless sets...


Your 5.8 system utilizes analog transmissions at 5.8 GHz between the base and handset. The DECT is digital at 1.9 GHz. Sorry, but the two systems are totally incompatible.

Handset won't charge


well, it is possible it has a bad cell in the battery, never reaching full voltage. check the battery with a volt meter if possible for 3.6 volts. otherwise trial and error may solve it, but batterys are getting to cost as much as phones nowdays.

It beeps and dies


Yes even if the Battery-low indicator does not light. There may not be enough current left in the battery. it may depend on how much talk time is expended after each full charge. For a phone of this vintage I would get a new battery or upgrade to a 5.8 GHZ phone. Check first to see if the charging light comes on steady when the handset is on the base and no tarnish or debris is on the battery charging terminals on both the handset and the base unit. Clean them with a soft cloth to make sure.

Put the second handset in the main base charge cradle for 20 seconds. It should then turn to READY status.

Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Note:
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.
