Question about Vtech 2467 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Switching from pulse to tone dialing (there is no switch on the base unit)

Both handsets mysteriously reset to pulse dialing (I suspect my 20-month old had something to do with it). The manual says there is a tone/pulse switch on the underside of the base unit. There is no such switch on my base unit. The manual also says factory setting is tone dialing. Have turned everything off and restarted with no effect. Is there a handset key combination or some other method to reset to permanent tone dialing? Thanks.

Hold the select button down a few seconds until you'll see a 'tn' on the readout. this sets it to tone. hold it down again and it will set back to 'Pu' for pulse. i figured this out by accident. the losers at vtech never answered my question.

    We had the same problem, and as everyone knows, the manual is a mess, so I wrote the "losers" at VTech and they sent me a link to an online manual for a 2420 model--built four years earlier than ours--with an actual pulse/tone switch on the back. Useless. Turns out when you press "Select" on the 2467 it displays what appears to be "En" with the top bar of the "E" missing, so I thought it meant "English" (vs. Spanish, the alternate language this phone handles). In fact it means "Tn" (Tone). This is what you get with Chinese-made equipment. Holding the "Select" button down a little longer brings up "Pu" (Pulse). So, all you do is hold down the button until the mode you want is displayed, then let go and it's set to that mode.

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

Tip

Fixing the handset link to base unit of Panasonic KX-TG4500


After the base unit died I was able to restore power by switching out the power adapter of one of the handsets with the one on the base unit. However, when the power was restored to the base, none of the handsets that previously worked were getting a dial tone. I could only use the phone from the base unit. To fix the handsets I first reset the base unit by pressing the reset button with the tip of a pen on the bottom of the base phone then momentarily removed and reinstall the battery on each of the handsets to allow each to reset individually. In doing so, I got the dial tone back on all previously linked handsets without having to reregister them.

My phone dials like a rotery not a pulse and is driving me crazy. Please help:)


You don't say what brand and model phone you have so I couldn't look for any detailed information, but somewhere on the phone will be a "tone/pulse" switch. Just where to find it I can't tell you so you'll have to play hide-and-seek.

For corded phones, check the bottom or side of the base part. If the phone has a spot where you can write your phone number, the switch may be hiding behind the paper strip under the clear plastic cover strip. If your phone has memory dialing, the T/P switch may be hidden under the card where you can write the stored numbers. On Trimline-style phones with the dial in the handset, the switch may be on the handset. On newer phones with setup menus there may be a tone/pulse selection setting instead of a switch. On wall phones you may need to take the phone off its mounting bracket to check for the switch.

On cordless phones, the switch might be on the handset or the base, again possibly hidden. Or it may be a setup menu choice again. But somewhere you will find a way to choose which dialing to use. Once you've found it, pick "tone" dialing and you'll be set.

The phone lights up when put to charge also the red light on the base,, but when the phone line is connected it wont work ..What do u think is the problem?


The battery in the handset could be bad . First I would test that the base unit is recieving dial tone by pressing speaker button on base unit. If there is dial tone then problem is in handset or in base unit communication to handset. Try resetting power to base unit. Check manual for any re-initialization procedure. If the base unit is not receiving dial tone then I would test that the phone line is delivering dial tone to the base unit by connecting a known good phone to the line cord. If the dial tone is not present , problem could be in line cord from outlet, outlet, building wiring, or service provider.

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

Swicth from tone to pulse


1) When the phone is in standby mode, press and hold the caller id/menu key.
2) Press the vol/ / key three times to select Dial.
3) Press the select key to toggle between Tone and Pulse.
4) Press the end key or return the handset to the base unit to complete the setting. The handset returns to standby mode.

This phone also has a feature that allows you to use Pulse dialing to make calls, but allows you to switch to tone dialing for automated systems (like “Please Press 1 for English) here are the steps for that:

Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects, press
the */tone key. Enter the desired number. These digits will be sent as tone dialing.
Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.

Per the instruction manual, there is supposed to be a switch on the base (look on the back or bottom) for TONE/PULSE mode. Here is a link to the manual: http://www.home-electronics.net/GE/ProductDownloads/25881EE3_IB.pdf In the "troubleshooting" section, there is this entry: Dial tone is OK, but can?t dial out: Make sure the TONE/PULSE setting on the base is set to the type of phone service you are subscribed to.
