You cannot just wire any jack plug and connect microphone recorder cable to phone cable because the audio out signal will be too low.

    As said, the speaker and the mic of a phone headset and mic are both low level signals.
    If you connect a regualar mic you won't hear anything.
    You need a phone recorder box to record from the phone.

Why does my phone say no line?


That means that it is not connected to the wiring that has voice data on it. IT cannot detect the voltage that should be there. Check the wires to the plug in to the phone jack.

Error message CHECK TEL LINE my phone line is connected and i followed all the right steps to connect my handset to the base HELP!


This sort of issue requires you to check if the base or the phone line has a problem.

I prefer to use an old corded phone for testing. I also get a new RJ-11 cable. Unplug your phone base from the jack and check for dial tone when you plug in your test phone.

If you get a dial tone on the test phone, try the new cable with your cordless phone. If you still get that message, then the phone has failed. If it is under warranty, contact the manufacturer for repairs. If it is out of warranty, then determine if it is worth fixing or replacing. These phones are not designed to be fixed by the end user.

If you do not have a dial tone, take your test phone to another jack on the phone line. Check if there is a dial tone at that point. If there is a dial tone, the problem is at the first jack or the phone line to the jack.

If you still do not have a dial tone at the second jack, find where your telephone service comes in. Open the box and determine the type of connection used. If you are lucky, it will have RJ-11 connections. Plug your test phone into the jack and check for a dial tone. If you do not have a dial tone at this point, call your telephone company. They will fix the problem for free. If you find that the connection is not an RJ-11 type, call the phone company and have them test the line and repair it if needed.

If you have a dial tone at the service box, then you have an inside wiring problem. Inspect the visible wires for damage. Open the faceplates for the jacks and check for loose wires. There are two types of connectors. Screw type connectors need the wire stripped back a little then wrap around the screw and tighten. The other type is a punchdown jack. To repair a loose wire in this, you will need a punchdown tool. These are often available in hardware/home improvement stores in the wiring section. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has clear pictures of the wire color to pin pattern.

You may want a professional to check the wires inside the walls. Your telephone provider will do this for a fee.

I hope this helps.

Handset doesn't have dial tone. says check TEL line.


For this type of problem, you need to isolate the issue. It could be the phone, the inside wiring, or the outside wiring. I like to use an old rotary phone for testing but any basic corded phone should work. Get a new RJ-11 phone cable as well.

Unplug the base unit and plug in the test phone to that jack. Check if you get a dial tone. (Try a new cable if the initial one doesn't work.) If your test phone has a dial tone, then the problem is isolated to the cordless phone. (If the test phone works with the new cable, do check if Uniden works with that cable.) Modern phones are not designed to be fixed by the consumer. If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden Customer Service. (Otherwise decide if the costs are worthwhile for you; there will be a significant delay before the phone is returned/replaced.)

If you do not get the dial tone, you need to track down the wiring issue. Next move to another jack on the phone line and check if there is a dial tone on your test phone. If there is a dial tone, you have isolated the problem to the jack or the wiring to the jack.

If there is still no dial tone, find where your telephone service comes in to your building. If you can, open the box. Determine the type of connection used there. If you are lucky, you will find a RJ-11 jack for your phone line. Plug in your test phone and check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, contact your telephone provider. They will fix this outside problem for free.

If the connection is not a RJ-11 jack, you will need to call the telephone company so that they can determine if the problem is inside or outside.

If you do have a dial tone, then the problem is with the inside wiring. Inspect the visible wires for damage. Open the faceplates for the jacks and check for loose wires. There are two types of connectors. Screw type connectors need the wire stripped back a little then wrap around the screw and tighten. The other type is a punchdown jack. To repair a loose wire in this, you will need a punchdown tool. These are often available in hardware/home improvement stores in the wiring section. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has clear pictures of the wire color to pin pattern.

When a call comes in it rings one time then stops


This is often caused by a partial short on the phone line. I would first test the line at the incoming interface. If this is a standard phone line(not from a cable company or broadband provider), there is usually an outside interface box where the phone line connects to the building wiring. Open the right side of the box with a screwdriver. In this box there is typically a short line cord plugged into a modular jack(test jack), if you unplug this line cord and connect a standard phone, you will be connected to the phone line but isolated from the building wiring. Make a test call to your number with the standard phone connected to the test jack and if the problem continues then the trouble is on the phone service provider's side and you will need to report the trouble to your service provider. If the trouble does not occur with the phone connected to the test jack, then the trouble is on the building side. To find where the trouble is on the building side you will need to use a process of elimination to test each of the outlets, line cords, telephones and cabling to determine where the short is. This process can often take a lot of time and patience to find the trouble. It may be best to call a telephone tech at this point. If your service is from a cable company or broadband provider, then you will need to test the line at the equipment that converts the cable or broadband into dialtone to determine if the trouble is on the service provider side or the building wiring side. Send a comment if you need more information on finding the trouble in your building wiring, outlets or telephones.

Every thing works except can,t get incoming calls and out going calls


First check if the phone jack and cable are good. (I like to plug in an old corded phone for this.) If you have a dial tone with the other phone and can make calls, try the new cable on the base of the cordless phone. If the problem persists, then the phone needs service. (Cordless phones are not meant to be user serviced.)

If neither phone has a dial tone at that jack, try another jack. If only the one jack is bad, open it up and check for loose or broken wires. (Most jacks terminate either at screw terminals with stripped wires or keystone jacks that require a special tool to push the wire down. A cheap version of the tool is sold with many keystone jacks and others are available separately at many home improvement stores. Check the aisle for wiring a house.) A RJ-11 wiring diagram is available here: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx .

Find where your phone connection comes in, open that box and check what type of connection is there. If it is a RJ-11 connection, try your phone at that point. (If it isn't RJ-11, you will need the phone company to check the line.) If there is no dial tone at the service connection, the phone company will repair it at their expense. If the problem is inside, check all exposed wires for damage. If the problem is inside a wall, you may need a professional. Your phone company will fix it for a fee.

I hope this helps.

Not able to ring out or recieve calls on landline 01772465172


Is there a dial tone? Have you tried plugging in outside in the NID(phone box) on the side if the house. Take a corded telephone out to the box if it has a test port to plug into. If it does, plug in. If you have a dialtone, then the problems inside with either the station wires or jacks, or other equipment that is plugged into the jacks. Remove all devises from the jacks if trouble is inside and take a known working phone and plug it into a jack. if it works, plug in another device, so on and so on. Be sure to check dial tone, break dial tone by pressing a button. Hang phone up and see if dial tone has returned. If not, then that piece of equipment is bad.
If no dial tone at the NID, then call in a trouble report of NO DIAL TONE to the telephone company of cable provider. To save money if trouble is inside, purchase the inside wiring maintenance plan and then have them come work on the phone lines. After the service is restored, call and cancel the maintenance. $5 and you're back in service, provided that's all the teleco charges for wiring maintenance.

The panasonic kx-t7633 has a flashing light but not dial tone


What color is the flashing light? Green is an intercom call and red is a call from an outside line. First try a new phone line cord and check if you have a bad cord. Do you have dial tone at other phones/jacks in the building? Unplug the extension line and plug in a known working phone. The phone needs repair if the your alternate phone works. If the second phone doesn't work at the jack, then the problem is in the wiring (at the jack or in the rest of the wire run) or in the Phone system. Depending on the jack, you can open it up and determine if there are any loose/broken wires. A cable tester that can do telephone lines (RJ-11) will help (some of these will handle power on the cable so check the specs for your phone system). If the jack uses a keystone, you will need to open it up and press the wires back down with the appropriate punch-down tool. You may want to pull the wires up and press them down at a different point (closer to the outlet box).

If none of the phones work then it is the phone system or the wiring coming into the building. I do not know if you can get to the service box and plug in a phone there. If there is no dial tone at the service box, get the phone company to fix it. If the problem is the phone system, you will have to consult a service person who knows more about the system.

I hope you find the problem to be simple, like a bad cable.

Subscribed to rogers cable phone service and know my old phone jacks don't work as the belong to the Bell Analogue network. Please help Justin


If you take a phone cord and plug it from your cable modem/phone jackand plug it into one of your analog jacks it should back feed to the remainder of the jacks in your house. You should disconnect the bell feed wire so it doesn't interfere with the cable phone line.

Phone works in one jack but not another


Hi, Looks like either the wiring is slightly different or the jack plug not quite with in the tolerance limit. Can you swap the cables between the units (if they are removeable) to eliminate the cable as well. I would suspect the cable on the new phone! I would also make sure there is no dirt on the connectors on the plug...there are minute grooves where you can see the meatl...sometinmes these get blocked!

Home telephone wiring


Your wiring could be a mess of splicing, jumpers, additions over the years. It's impossible to know (or to really be able to help you) without being there in person.

Typically, you just have to worry about the red and green wires. The black and yellow are for a second line. This is of course only if you have standard 2 pair wiring.

If any work has been done recently I would concentrate on that area. If just one jack is removed or a wire cut by mistake that could easily take out your entire house. Also, if the red and green wires are touching anywhere that would also cause a problem.
