Customer Question
Our 3rd cordless phone...

Our 3rd cordless phone (upstairs)was switched off for 5 weeks while we were away. Now we cannot get it to work. It says "out of range" Please put in base cradle" "check base cradle. We have charged it for 15-20 hours on the base cradle downstairs. Still no response. What shall we do next!

Technician's Assistant: How old is the phone?

It is 12 months old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Since we returned on Thursday 27th. Tried recharging it on the base cradle. Checked that battery is in place.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?

No, that's about all thanks

It's a Uniden DECT 3236. We have one phone with base answering system and cordless handset plus 2nd upstairs phone which is faulty and 3rd phone in downstairs office which works.
Electronics Technician: Louie, Technician replied 11 months ago

Please try performing a RESET of the erring handset (2nd upstairs phone which is faulty). Click HERE.

Thereafter, proceed to register by placing this handset on the base unit to charge.
