I have this same problem. I changed the cord and handset. This did not help. When I pickup the handset it picks a line and it lights the line button. But, I cannot hear the dial tone. I can hear on the speaker phone feature just fine. I am beginning to think it may be internal. Thanks for helping.

d. Disconnect AC adapter from wall outlet
e. Allow to sit for 30 min
f. Reconnect Phone Cord to base
g. Reconnect Phone cord to wall jack
h. Reconnect AC Adapter to wall outlet
i. Reconnect Battery to handset until you click or feel the plug snap into place
j. Re-Register Handset by placing on main base (Resetting security code - manually)

It could be the speaker which can be swithched with one that works from another phone. Unscrew the receiver and switch it and then see if you can hear.

This problem often results from a defective handset cord--check the handset cord by switching it with a good one. If that solves the problem, replace the cord. With a portable phone, substitute a transmitter from another telephone--replace if necessary.

SOURCE: caller id and ringer
Do you have a dial tone? Do any other phones show caller id? do any other phones ring? Have you programmed the phones? Really need more information in order to help.

you should read the mouth piece with a meter to know if it is working properly. if the mouthpiece is bad then have to replace it with good one.
