DSL line. Possible that filters are not plugged in. When DSL service is being used on your line, filters must be installed at every jack that is in use. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones) and other issues on your line. (ex. Caller ID problems). In order to avoid having this issue, the service provider gives DSL filters to all customers when they sign up for service. These microfilters must be used because they allow your phones to work properly by blocking the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted through the telephones. DSL filters should be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. If you are not using the filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly Caller ID issues on your phones that are plugged into jacks without filters. Please contact your service provider for filter information and proper installation. Interference: Other 2.4 GHz products. Other products that use the 2.4 GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. Items include: Radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, other 2.4GHz cordless phones and 2.4 GHz intercoms or monitors. If any of these items are in the area, they can interfere with the performance of this phone; try relocating the phone. Other 5.8 GHz products. Other products that use the 5.8 GHz band such as home networking (wireless modems) other 5.8 GHz cordless products (phones etc.) can interfere with the use of this phone. Try relocating the phone. Interference from microwave. Microwaves work on the same frequencies as the 2.4 GHz phones. If the unit is on when the microwave is running, it is normal to experience static at that time. Do not plug this phone in the same outlet or near the microwave. Environmental. Normal radio operation. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. Try channing channels. Surge protector or modem. Unplug modem or surge protector that is connected to the unit. Building structure limits range. Relocate telephone base near window when using telephone outside. Base unit located in basement or other low area. Relocate telephone base to higher location. The unit will get better reception if it is not located in a low area. Video displays, television sets and personal computers may cause interference. Video displays, television sets and personal computers can cause interference on this phone. Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet were there is no major appliance plugged in. If the base is near any of the above mentioned, locate the base to another room. Possible telephone line/service problem. Try using your equipment at a different location (i.e. friend or neighbors). If the unit functions properly in the new location, contact your local telephone company for assistance; additional charges to be incurred by customer may apply.

The speaker phone on our panasonic KX-T7633 dosn't go loud enough. We are trying to hook up an external speaker, but when we plug it into the headphone jack we just get a buzzing noise. Is there a...

There should be a way to do that. 1st make sure speaker jack is fully inserted. If you still have same problem try normal headphones and see if there still is foreign hum- then if headphones work, check the size of both the jacks to see if there the same- you might just have wrong size jack. If that is not the problem the Impedance(ohm symbol) is probably wrong and the phone doesn't have enough power to drive your speaker.. Use a speaker with same Impedance, you might have to use a speaker with its own power supply to get appropiate volume. You could try your PC external speaker. I hope this has been helpful.

Uniden#tru94852 has a loud hum & we can't

Loud hum is usually foreign earth which could be water in telecommunications pits or other problem in exchange. To prove if phone or line is faulty-plug in another phone. If you have more than 1 phone in your property you would want to unplug them also and test from 1st socket.

Humming on clarity phone. did not hum when first purchased. old at&t phone does not hum when plugged in on same line.

Have had this symptom from bad line cord or corroded line cord connection in phone. Also, could be bad handset cord. Try switching out the handset and handset cord from the AT&T phone to determine if Clarion has bad handset or handset cord.

I have a buzzing noise all the time i am talking so people cannot hear me clearly

Is your phone near a flourescent light?

Turn your power cord over.

You are describing 60 cycle hum.

Try to find the source and isolate your phone from it if possible.

You might also be agle to change the frequency you are using ... check your phone documentation.

I hope you find this comment helpful.

Motorola 580 handset not working

My handset does not connect to the base station. It flashes momentarily, but does not find the base. The base station has a humming noise when the phone line is disconnected and the talk button is depressed. Hum is also present when the phone line is reconnected. The problem was resolved by replacing the 9VDC power supply. The hum disappeared and the handset immediately connected to the base.

My Motorola MA580 sometimes work and others don´t

It sounds as if the channel that the phone and base has selected during that session is bad, or being used by another system in the area. When that happens, try selecting another channel. You should be able to do this by depressing a button on the handset. Normally labeled "Channel". Please post further questions or comments. Please rate this solution through fix-it. Thank you

60 Hz hum on recorded messages

The described problem is not a settings problem and is probably a internal malfunction. Try consulting Vtechs support center.
