Panasonic cordless handsets all say line in use

All my handsets say Line in Use even though nobody is on the phone, no fax is coming through and no phones are off the hook.

Have Panasonic KX-TGA541S and Panasonic KX-TGA560M and have never had this problem before.

    I'm having the same problem with my Panasonic phone. I was at this site and went to take the batteries out and try the solution, and the phone was working . It's been saying "line in use" all day. Now the phone has a strange buzz on it, but it's working.

    It doesn't seem like it could be the "memory stuck" thing because it comes and goes? Oh my.

I had the same problem. Something makes the phone's memory get "stuck."  Take the battery out of the phone for a minute and then put it back. Then unplug the phone and plug in again. You need to do this with all extensions. The problem goes away.

Better late than never. I had the same problem with Panasonic phone and Nettalk service. The problem with the "INUSE" was fixed by removing the phone line connection to my DirectTV DVRs. Once I did that, the phone immediately was ready for use.

Return to the manufacturer for replacement. I've spent hours on this and have had my line tested. It's a base station fault.

I had this problem as well. Take the battery out of the phone for a minute or two and then put it back in. Unplug the the phone (jack and power supply) including all extensions, then plug them in again. This should work. I worked for me.

    We were having this problem at work. I tried this suggestion and it did seem to work. But then the same problem came back the next day. Not sure what to do next. Maybe replace the batteries? (although the extensions have been working fine until this problem, and they have not lost battery power as far as I can tell)

This has happen to me twice. The first time a dog had chewed the extension lead for the base phone. Replaced the lead and it worked.The second time I thought it was the same problem with the lead that went through a door and the door had damaged the lead, so replaced the lead, but it didn't fix it. Got another phone and tested the upstairs jacks and there was no dial tone so called Telecom to fix. The weird thing was I still had internet and email access so I didn't think it was a problem at their end. Seems there was a fault at the exchange and our phones are all working again now.

SIMPLE FIX clears "In Use" from your Panasonic handsets: On the back side of your MAIN BASE SET ONLY, DISCONNECT both the phone & power lines and RECONNECT.

(This cleared my Panasonic KX-TX5100 base & KX-TGA510M handsets after a thunder storm.)

Unplug the battery. Hold down The * (star) and the #(hash) keys simultaneously. Re-connect the battery, phone will beep and screen will be blank. Press the voicemail (righthand silver key under the lcd screen). As above EEPROM/RAM message will appear. Place handset on base and your problem is solved.

SOURCE: No dial tone on Uniden Dect 6.0 land line and portable phone

We've had the same problem with our new Uniden phone. Sounds like someone's on the other line - no dial tone and answering machine doesn't work. The telephone line works though because we plugged our old phone in and it works fine. Any solutions anyone?

SOURCE: Error message CHECK TEL LINE

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.

Increase number of rings


You can select the desired ringer patterns of the base unit and cordless

handsets. 4 patterns are available for each line. Your phone comes from

the factory set to pattern 1. Programming must be carried out

separately for the base unit and cordless handset(s).

Make sure that the base unit/cordless handset is in the standby mode.

I have a Uniden cordless phone #D2CT 6.0--I love the phone but the party on the other end of the line can barely hear me -how can I fix this or this a bad phone???


At 20 ft line of sight, you should have perfect reception with most any cordless phone.

The fuzzy signal can indicate:
1.
A weak signal between base and handset.
20 ft line of sight should have a good strong signal.
Your handset may be defective.
Or, your handset battery may be weak.
Your base unit may be defective.

2.
You may be experiencing RFI Interference.
Is the base unit next to any other electronic devices?
If it is next to a wireless router or some other wireless device, it may be overloaded by the nearby signal (even if on a different frequency)

I've got a 5 year old Panasonic 5.8 Ghz cordless phone connected to my VoIP box. I just tested it from about 25 ft away from the base unit in another room with a wall in between and my reception is perfect.

I did the same test with my Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones (1.9 GHz). The first handset is slightly fuzzy, but otherwise good signal. The 2nd handset was perfectly quiet with good strong signal. So, there is a difference between two identical handsets connected to the same base unit. This indicates to me that one handset is better tuned than the other. Nothing I can do about that but get a new 2nd extension cordless handset. Sometimes, it's just luck of the draw

I just want to make sure that I am shopping for the right product. We have a dental office with 1 phone#, but we have a rollover line. Our fax has it's own# which "was" what we called line 3 but as of...


Yes, you can use a regular 2 line cordless phone with your 4 line corded systems. The only concern is when you put someone on hold. The on hold function may not release if you have different makes of phone. If you already have Panasonic get a Panasonic 2 line cordless phone with the on hold feature.

Yes, you can just take line 3 and plug it into your new fax. I might suggest looking into a fax to email service instead of buying a new fax. If you receive more than send it's a great way to save on the phone line and paper.

Digital phones are pretty secure, no one will accidentally hear your conversations. It is not encrypted but I think it would be perfectly fine in your office.

Sounds like your telephone line is dead. Call your service provider to determine if its a problem on their end.

Error message -using handset (no handset on the machine. mfd - 1515


If this appear for the first time see the follow, if this started to appear after a time of usage you will need to call a Ricoh technician, sorry but i cannot gain some help in this type of problems.
see do you use a cord with two wires or four for Ricoh when using some telephone centrals like a Panasonic it's better to use a two wired cord for the line, if this still do not help, you will need to call the telephone central technician to set the line for the Ricoh fax.

Panasonic phone system, won't release the phone line


You might try removing the battery pack and see if that resets the phone. If not, you probably have a component inside the phone that has failed.

On most cordless phones, it is not cost effective to have them repaired.
