Set Up the Repeater
 The repeater is not a telephone; it must be registered to a phone
base before using.
 Any repeater that came packaged with a base are already
registered to that base for you.
 For instructions on registering repeaters to the base, see page
47.
How it Works

including up and down.
Cordless handsets
Extended coverage area
The repeater has a
automatically connect to
stronger signal; handsets
in this area connect to the
the repeater or the
repeater
base, depending on which
signal is stronger. You can roam
anywhere within range of the base or the
repeater(s) and make and receive calls as usual from
your handsets.
Base coverage area
The base signal is
strongest; handsets
in this area connect
to the base.
Hand-off
area
 Handsets operate exactly the same no matter which unit they
connect to.
 Usually, you can't tell when a handset switches between the base
and the repeater in the middle of a call.
 Your base supports a total of 6 repeaters, including any that were
supplied with your phone.
 Repeaters can be up to 3 chain-links (maximum) from the base.

Connect the Repeater Power Cord
Use the included adapter to connect the
repeater to a regular indoor (240 V AC)
power outlet.
Placing the Repeater
Here are a few tips for placing your
repeater so that you get the clearest
signal and the maximum range:
Wall-mount
holes
Registration
button
Power connector
 Place the repeater just inside the base's
coverage area, that is, as far from the base as possible where you
still have good reception.
 Put the repeater at least 10 m away from the base or any other
repeater.
 If you place the repeater on a flat surface, make sure the power
cord doesn't pull on the unit and that people walking by won't
knock it off the surface.
 If possible, mount the repeater on the wall.
Finding the Base’s Coverage Area
1.Stand near the base and make a
call on a cordless handset that is
registered to that base.
No signal
(all noise)
Weak signal
(some noise)
2) Continue the call and carry the
Strong signal
(no noise)
handset away from the base.
Make sure you go at least 10
meters.
3) Make a note where you start
to hear noise on your call (the
signal is getting weaker). You
can use the signal strength
icon on the handset display to
find the best location: make a
note where the icon indicates the signal is getting weaker.
The noise increases as
the signal gets weaker
During a call, carry
the handset from
the base
Place the repeater inside the
strong signal range (before the
noise increases)
12
XDECT 8055 OM.indb 12
12/8/11 3:02:37 PM
1) Place the repeater anywhere inside the range where the
handset had a clear connection with no noise and the icon
showed a strong signal.
Testing the Location
1.Place the repeater in its final position and connect the AC adapter.
The Link light will flash for a few seconds, then stay on.
If...
Try...
the Link light --checking the repeater's AC adapter
doesn't turn on --connecting the adapter to a different outlet.
--making sure the repeater is not near electronic
devices that can cause interference.
the link light --making sure there are no thick walls or large metal
objects between the repeater and the base; these can
continues
block the signal.
flashing
--making sure there is no other base or repeater within
10 m of this location.
2) Move further away from the base and make a test call on a
cordless handset.
If...
the call won't connect
there is a lot of noise
on the call
Try...
--re-registering the repeater.
--moving the repeater closer to the base.

XDECT 8055 OM.indb 13
12/8/11 3:02:39 PM
Place the Repeater on the Wall
You can mount the repeater directly to a wall using the horizontally
aligned mounting slots at the back of the repeater unit. Before doing
this consider the following:
 Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting
location that could cause a hazard when inserting screws into the
wall.
 Mount the repeater within distance of a working 240V AC power
outlet.
The Repeater unit is NOT waterproof. If mounted onto an outside
wall place under an eave or roof overhang where it is protected
from direct weather conditions, DO NOT place in direct sunlight.
111 Insert two #10 screws into the wall, 57 mm apart. Leave the
heads of the screws about 6 mm away from the wall. (For best
results, use a level to ensure the screws are even.)
Remember to use appropriate anchors for the wall material.
222 Keeping the AC adapter cord out of the way, place the repeater
over the screw heads and slide it down into place.
To remove the unit from the wall, just slide it up and lift it off the
screw heads.

Entering Text on Your Phone
When you want to enter text into your phone (for example, a name
in the phonebook), use the twelve-key dial pad to enter the letters
printed on the number keys. Here's how it works:
 The phone enters the letters in the order they appear on the key.
For example, if you press the number key 2 once, the phone
enters the letter A. Press 2 twice for B, and three times for C.
 If you press the key again after the last letter, the phone starts the
same letter sequence with small letters. If you press 2 four times
in a row, the phone enters a (small letter). Press 2 five times for b,
and six times for c.
 If you see the icon [Aa] in the display, the phone enters capital
letters first (A B C), then small letters (a b c), then the number on
the key (2). The icon [aA] means the phone starts at the small
letters, so it enters small letters first, then the number on the key,
then capital letters.
 The phone automatically uses a capital letter for the first letter and
any letter right after a space; all other times, it uses small letters.
 If two letters in a row use the same number key, enter the first
letter, then use Caller ID/right to move the cursor to the next
position to enter the second letter.

Using Do Not Disturb (DND)
You can silence the ringers on all handsets for a specific period of
time.
111 With the phone in standby, press and hold DND on the base or
#/DND on any handset. The phone prompts you to select the
number of hours (1 - 9 or Always On) that you want it to stay in
silent mode.

DND mode. To exit DND mode manually, press and hold DND on
the base or #/DND on the handset again.
Using Call Block
If you subscribe to Caller ID, you can save phone numbers to the call
block list. When a call comes in, the phone compares the received
phone number to the numbers on the call block list. If the phone
number is on the list, the phone replaces the caller's name with Call
Blocked and disconnects the call. (The caller hears a reject guidance.)
The call block list holds 20 entries, and all stations share the same
list. You can add entries through the Call Blocking menu, from the CID
list, or by blocking incoming calls. (Only one station can edit the call
block list at a time.)
Blocking incoming calls (Base only)
When the phone rings, wait until the display shows the Caller ID
information (usually after the second ring). If you want to block the
call and add this number to the call block list, press BLOCK on the
base. When the phone asks you to confirm, press Menu/select or
Block.
Blocking an incoming call from an "Unknown" or "Private"
number is the same as selecting Unknown Number or Private

Using Multi-Station Features
The expandable base and the cordless handset give you some useful
multi-station features. (A station can be any handset or the base.)
Expanding Your Phone
 Your base supports a maximum of 12 cordless handsets: the one
that came with the base and up to 11 XDECT 8005 accessory
handsets.
 Note: Expansion capacity is limited to six (6) handsets total if an
XDECT 8015WP or XDECT 8005WP (waterproof) handset is
registered. Your base also supports a total of 2 repeaters, including
any that came with your phone. Visit the XDECT 8055 page on the
website for compatible repeaters.
 Your base might be compatible with other Uniden accessory
handsets: please visit our website for a list of compatible handsets.
 Accessory handsets/repeaters must be registered to the base
before you can use them. Handsets that aren't registered display
a Handset not registered message. For instructions on registering
handsets/repeaters to this base, see pages 46 & 47 or the manual
for the accessory.
 Any accessory handset(s)/repeater that came packaged with the
base are already registered to that base for you.
 If a handset was previously registered to a base, you have to reset
it so you can register it to a new base (see page 46 for XDECT
8005).

Weak or Hard To Hear Audio
If a caller’s voice sounds weak or soft, the signal might be blocked by
large metal objects or walls; you might also be too far from the base,
or the handset’s battery may be weak.
 Try moving around while you’re on a call or moving closer to the
base to see if the sound gets louder.
 Make sure the handset’s battery is fully charged.
 Try adjusting the earpiece volume or the audio tone (see below).

Here are some hints for when the static is...
on 1 handset or in 1 location:
--Check nearby for one of the common
interference sources.
--Try moving the handset away from a
suspected source, or try moving the
suspected source so it’s not between
the handset & the base.
--Try moving closer to the base. There is
always more noise at the edges of the
base's range. If the handset displays an
Out of Range message, you need to
move closer to the base.
on all handsets or in all locations:
--Check near the base for the
source of interference.
--Try moving the base away from a
suspected source, or turn off the
source if possible.
--If the base has an adjustable
antenna, try raising the antenna
so it stands straight up.
--If you have any service that uses
the phone line, you might need a
filter (see below).

base into the filter. Make a test call to make sure the noise is gone.

Handling Liquid Damage
Moisture and liquid can damage your cordless phone.
 If the handset or base is exposed to moisture or liquid, but only the
exterior plastic housing is affected, wipe off the liquid, and use as
normal.
 If moisture or liquid has entered the plastic housing (i.e. liquid can
be heard in the phone or liquid has entered the handset battery
compartment or vent openings on the base), follow these steps:
Handset
111 Remove the battery cover & disconnect the
battery.
222 Let dry for at least 3 days with the battery
disconnected and the cover off for ventilation.
333 After the handset dries, reconnect the battery
pack and replace the cover. Recharge the
battery fully (15-20 hours) before using.
Base
111 Disconnect the AC
adapter to cut off the
power.
222 Disconnect the
telephone cord.
333 Let dry for at least 3 days
before reconnecting.
IMPORTANT: You must unplug the telephone line while
recharging the battery pack to avoid charge interruption.
CAUTION! DO NOT use a microwave oven to speed up the
drying process. This will cause permanent damage to the
handset, base and the microwave oven.
Automatic ECO (Power Save) Mode
Handset
ECO mode activates automatically during Talk or Intercom modes,
if the received signal is good, to reduce power consumption. ECO
shows on the display when ECO mode is active. If the received signal
becomes poor, ECO mode will be released and ECO will be turned
off.
Base
If the base has only one handset registered (i.e. no accessory
handsets) then the base will reduce its transmission power when the
handset is on the base.

time and about 7 days of standby time. For best results, return the
handset to the cradle after each call to keep it fully charged.

low, the handset shows a low battery alert. If you hear a strange
beep during a call, check the display: if you see the low battery
alert, finish your conversation as quickly as possible and return the
handset to the cradle. If the handset is in standby, none of the keys
will operate.

Battery Information
• Fully charged, the battery should provide about 10 hours of talk
time and about 7 days of standby time. For best results, return
the handset to the cradle after each call to keep it fully charged.
• Keep an eye on the battery status icon. When the battery gets
too low, the handset shows a low battery alert. If you hear a
strange beep during a call, check the display: if you see the low
battery alert, finish your conversation as quickly as possible and
return the handset to the cradle. If the handset is in standby,
none of the keys will operate.
• With normal use, the battery should last about one year.
Replace the battery when the talk time becomes short even
when the battery is charged. To buy a replacement battery,
visit the website.
