Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System

2 Answers

I can't dial out from my handsets

My handsets won't allow us to dial out from the phones. We hear the dial tone but whenever we try to dial the number, it won't connect. It will just go right back to the dial tone. It isn't our phone lines, because we have another phone in the room that works perfectly fine. We've only had this vtech phone for a couple months. I've already tried disconnecting the battery and checking to see if its still on the dial tone and not pulse. Please help us with this problem and explain to me what it is that I need to do to make it work!! Thanks

    My problem is the same as the one described. Except it will occasionally allow us to dial out or receive a call but there is a tremendous amount of static. This has been the case for about a week. The other phones in my home have no problems. Also, it has stopped generating the caller id display. The battery is not indicating a low charge and it and the wire appear to be fine.

    I have the exact same problem. Was working fine and on my fifth dial out, it dials the number but then it goes back to the original dial tone. Continuously doing this now. I tried calling and that works fine. Not a problem with the phone lines.

    Twice now, unplugging works but problem re-occurs. We have a wireless router could that be causing the problem?

    when I try to use the phone I get a busy signal instead of a dial tone. When you try to call the vtech phone from another phone a message says that the person you are trying to reach is not accepting calls at this time.

Monotary suggested the following and it seems to be working for now.
"Disconnect or unplug the power supply (the small black box that is plugged into the wall outlet) wait for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Sometimes the power supply needs to reset itself."

Here is something to try:

Disconnect or unplug the power supply (the small black box that is plugged into the wall outlet) wait for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Sometimes the power supply needs to reset itself. It worked for me.

Thanks,

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.

I can hear, but not talk, on my ATS RA2184BB cordless phone.


Have you tried unplugging your base station and all the handsets?

Sometimes the base station, where the power and the telephone line plugs into needs a reset. Just like a computer sometimes it needs a reboot.

If problem presists, take a regular analog phone and plug it in to the same jack as the cordless phone bas station, and see if it is a cable issue/ telephone company issue.
