Firsst of all check the line to the base phone, test with a good phone for confirmation or test the voltage of the line. next clean the surfaces of the handset contacts to the base. check if the battery of the handset is good. if not replace. Next placing the phone on the base should make it detect the base. If the base and the handset does not mate, then you will not get the dial tone. this could be due to failure of the inout due to lightening/ thunderstorms, failure of the optocouplers, the dial switching ICs or the main processor. You will need to check on these electronic sections. I hope this helps. Good day
Here's what the manual says:
Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing)
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.
Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new
setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other
Hope this helps out.
One of the two "soft buttons" at the top of the keypad (first row of keys under the handset's display) should read Flash when you are on a call. Hit that button, you'll hear the line tone, dial the number and wait for the other person to answer. Hit Flash again and they should be joined together. If not, you may need to subscribe to Call Waiting/3-way Calling through your telephone company.

Make sure the phone is pluggd into the wall properly. If so and no dial tone is detectable make sure you installed the batterys on the handsets correctly and that they are fully charged. If you have a friendly neighbor with a working phone line plug youre phone into their line and if it does not work and you followed my previous instructions seek a repair center in youre area that honors panasonic warranties. If the phone is pluggd in at the neighbors house and it works use it to call the phone company.
