    Oh, your comment comes up at in the All Products/Phones/Troubleshooting category as Generic Problem for All Phones with the subject line "The Telephone Is Not Working". Pretty specific huh :-)

    I have a USR USB phone for Skype. I don't use it much, but it seems to work O.K. It has a blue lighted display and a handful of function buttons....USR 9601.

    Perhaps if you posted your model number it would warn others to be careful.

Hello! I'm from Riyadh Saudi Arabia. I've left on my Tripp Lite UPS 1000 just last night. When I came in my office in the morning, my desktop computer including my computer server was OFF. I supprised that...

Unplug the computer. Then run the UPS self-test and the unit will display whether it finds an overload fault, whether the battery needs to be charged or replaced.
Here are the instructions (copied from the User Manual):
Turn UPS on: Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.

Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until alarm beeps several times).

The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound.

If the fault icon remains lit, the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. Unplug powered devices until you remove the overload.

If the "Replace" icon remains lit and alarm continues to sound, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or replaced. Allow UPS to charge for 24 hours and repeat self-test.

Need manual for connecting fax to phone line and computer


* one telephone-wire from wall-outlet to port on FAX labelled "line" or "telco";

* one telephone-wire from port labelled "phone" (or an icon of a telephone) to the port on your computer's modem labelled "tel" or "telco" (if your modem has more than just one port).

So, "incoming" telephone-calls go the FAX, to be "answered" by the FAX, while "outgoing" dial-up-Internet connections from your computer's modem "pass-through" the FAX, and to to the wall-port, and further along to the Internet Service Provider.

My current telephone socket isn't near an electrical point. I want a new telephone that incorporates B.T. 'Answer'. My current one runs on batteries but these are no longer made. For these reasons I need a...

First,to eliminate any confusion between you and any phone technician or electrician, phones plug into a "jack" and power plugs into an "outlet" and a light bulb plugs into a "socket" ;-)
Ok, now to answer your question, yes its very easy to move your phone line to any existing jack that you have in your house. This is a simple, physical job that only requires simple hand tools and shouldn't take a tech. more than 10 mins to do. you phone "number" is not effected in any way. if you have DSL or high speed internet through the phone company, then you really only need one jack not a secondary at the same place. DSL runs on the same phone line as your dial tone, just a different frequency. If you have other phone jacks in your house with phones plugged in then you just need filters to plug into those jacks and then just plug phones into those filters. They are small , about the size of a silver dollar. I assume you want your phone and computer with internet at the same place you were asking about. You don't need a filter there because your DSL modem has one built in .
You only have to worry about keeping your same phone number if you are moving out of town and want to keep the same number. This is possible. Its called "porting" a number. Its done in a dept. in the phone company that does dial tone programming. A coulple clicks on their computer and its ready for a technician to get it to your new house. Depending on the company there may be a charge.
I am a phone tech for the largest land line phone company in the U.S. and have been for 11 years and counting, so feel free to ask me any questions.
