Will not dial out on pulse on one line, works on second line


try changing phone to tone dialing . one phone line has been setup for Decadic dialing and the other line may be setup for tone dialing.
If tone dialing is working on one line but not the other then get phone company to change the dialing type on the phone line.
Dual tone multi frequency is the technical name for tone dialing and is more efficient than decadic dialing or pulse dialing.

Won't dial out


might you have your phone set for tone on a pulse line???

Do you know what kind of line you have?

You can use pulse and/or tone on a tone line. But you cannot use tone on a pulse line.

A pulse line is cheaper ... I have a pulse line from the mid 70's and I refuse to upgrade it (costs more) to tone - whats the point - I never get any calls and im not in that big a hurry to dial for the extra couple bucks they want.

Phone went from touch tone to pulse. . .


Hello,

Read the manual to reconfigure that option. (Look for Setup button on the phone) I can't guess what model you have. On older phones one could find a switch on the the phone to flip between Tone and Pulse.

Sorry I could not be of much help.

Need to change phone back to tone dialing


Here's what the manual says: Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing) (HS1 only) Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most phone networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, follow the steps below to modify your phone?s settings: With the phone in standby, press and hold [cid/menu]. Press [vol/ / ] to move the pointer to select DIAL. Press [select/channel] to set the phone to pulse dialing. Press [end]. Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other handsets. Hope this helps out. K

Can't change to pulse dialing


The Vetech phone will only support tone dialing. It does have a menu option that turns tone on or off but it still will not allow pulse dialing. I had to change the phone service from pulse dialing to tone dialing to get the phones to work. As it turned out, the phone company no longer charges extra for the tone service.

I cannot dial out.


The dial may be defective and when you dial it is putting out erronous tones. When the Phone Company heres digits that do not correspond to a legal phone number it will give you a error tone or busy tone. It could be the phone got put on pulse and the line won't recognize the pulses

Dial Tone - Number Dialed does not go through


The problem is possibly the keypad on the phone. Try another phone , preferrably a standard corded phone. If you still cannot break the dial tone, then the problem is with the telephone line (phone company)

There was a power surge, and now my phone is stuck on pulse dialing, how do I get it back to tone? I can use the star key to bypass the pulse and put the phone on tone, but it only works one call at a...


You’ll need either a 6-button or a 24-button set SPIRIT CS administration.

First the control unit ADMIN switch must be ON, the administration overlay must be in place on station 10, and the set must be plugged into control unit jack 10 (call processing is interrupted only at station 10).

After moving the admin switch, and before dialing Ftr 7 -
From station 10 press intercom,
Press speaker,
Dial *0,
Dial 1,
Then Press Ftr 7.

Each line indicator light will show the current dialing type for that line. If the light is OFF, that line is set for touch tone dialing. If the light is ON, the line is set for dial pulse
dialing.

To change the dialing type for a line or lines, press the line button(s) and dial the
appropriate digit from the table below. You may press more than one line button to make the change on more than one line. If you enter a digit without first pressing a line button you will hear the error tone.

Be sure to turn the admin switch back off when you’re finished.
