The ring tone sounds like a strangled parrot!

We have a Cable & Wireless CWB200H telephone which we have had for a few years and really like. This week the ring tone has started to sound like a parrot being strangled. We don't want to throw the phone away and buy a new one unless there is no alterrnative. We have tried all 3 ring tone settings and the problem doesn't go away. I hope you can help.

there is a "special feature" for privacy that can be turned on or off...when on it is supposed to keep others from eavesdropping - but it actually will not let other phones work...turn that off (settings 1 is for date, go to settings8) and it will complement your other phones and work.!!

Is this the only phone this happens on?  If not, try going to the Phone box on your house and connecting in directly there.  If you still have a problem call your phone company.

SOURCE: telephone connection problem with DSL

unplug everthing from all jacks in the house. call your # a couple of times. if the line rings, plug everything in 1 at a time, but call again after each hook up. if the line goes dead or is busy, that phone you just plugged in is the problem. [ a short in the phone, computer, answer machine, or any piece of equipment plugged into the phone line.] if the line is busy when everything is unplugged, call your phone company. there maybe a problem with your inside wire.there also maybe a box [called a nid] inside your basment/garage or on the side of your house, where you can plug your phone directly in, bypassing all the jacks in your house
hope this helps.

Hi, one of our Call Center workers cannot hear the ringing phone when she has the headset onWhat's your problem?


The ring from the telephone is picked up by the internal microphone on the HL10 Handset Lifter, typically for most phones, the lifter sits directly over the speaker grill on the telephone where the sound comes out. For telephones that curve out on the left side and don't have a straight edge, there is an accessory called a "Ring Detector" which is used. Here's a link:

HL10 Nortel Adapter Kit - 46780-01

If the internal mic on the lifter has gone out, you can plug the ring detector into the handset lifter and just stick the ring detector over the speaker grill to pick up the ring. Plugging this into the lifter will bypass the internal mic, this accessory would have come with your HL10 lifter. You can also check the ring volume on the telephone, and you can also try adjusting the ring tone on the phone (sometimes it will pick up one ring tone better than another). Here is a link below if you need to order a new ring detector:

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

We have an older Uniden cordless telephone-Model #EXI7960 that seems to have a very soft ring tone. How can we increase the volume of the ring? Also, is there an owners manual on-line for download?


The EXI7960 has two ring tones and two volume settings available. With the handset in standby, press the Volume up button. (The volume up and down arrows let you switch both volume and ring tone. So you may have to press it a few times to adjust the volume.) The display should show the changes.

Retrevo has the manual here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Uniden-EXI7960-Telephones-manual/id/471dj498/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

How can I get the telephone on my Brother Fax T96 to work?


Step by step information at the link below.
Brother Fax T96
The F/T Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3 seconds).
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.

If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
  • If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax machine for receiving.

  • If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91 for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.

  • If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the Fax Start or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.

  • If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
    To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.

  • If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.

Can I put ringtones on pro 700 with my computer and a micro usb cable? What program do I use? Thanks.


If yhou have "ringtones" to put on. Supposedly, phones now all use a standard phone USB cable.

The problem is this: Ringtones are a very specialized and very small file. If you have ring tones,there is not much reason you cant put them onto the telephone.

Next problem would be to convince the telephone to use the tone.

I do now you can record sound on most telephones and make the telephone use that sound file as a ring tone.

That may be a way for you to get around the file specialty issue.

PIXMA MP780 will not receive fax with Verizon DSL connection. Before unit was ok with comcast cable, Note: I'm able to send fax. RBRANT


Solution: Contact local phone company to check the telephone wall jack for low ring voltage.

Ring-in Voltage Facsimile equipment?(fax machines), like other telephone anwering devices, require ring voltage at a telephone jack to answer automatically.? The ring voltage is one of the services provided by the local phone company.
  • Low ring-in voltage can cause short bursts of ring tones at the phone jack.
  • Callers may hear one or two ring back tones and then ringing will stop and nothing else will be heard.
  • Inside the home, the called party will hear a brief ring and then nothing else will be heard. If the telephone handset is lifted, the caller may be on the other end.
To check if the fax will not answer due to low ring-in voltage, do the following:
  1. Disconnect the fax at the telephone wall jack.

  2. If an answering machine is available, connect it directly to the telephone jack. If an answering machine is not available, connect a telephone to the telephone jack.

  3. Dial the fax line and see if the answering machine answers the call, listen for uncommon ring tones inside the home or check for similar symptoms as described above. If any of the above symptoms occur, please contact your local telephone company.

Need to know if I can use a digital dial tone with this switch


A regular telephone will plug into the ATA from the cable modem. You just plug one of the ports of the phone system (CO port) into the same place and you'll get dial tone.

Every time when the phone rings and I answer it the fax kicks in with that really annoying sound. I have to shut down the fax and plug it back in after I am done my call. what is the normal setting for...


The fax is on what you call a Distinctive Ring tone. You need to go in to the settings on the fax machine, and look for Ring type, or Distinctive Ring, And set it to 2 or 3, Dependent on how the phone rings on the fax number.

Remote ring detection provides a low tone * triple beep in your wireless headset when you receive an incoming call. This feature requires a handset lifter accessory, such as the Plantronics HL1 or HL10. If you do have a handset lifter but do not hear the remote ring detection, please check the following:

  • Check the placement of the lifter. - Make sure the handset lifter positioned directly over the phone's speaker.

  • Try adjusting the phone's ringer volume. If the phone's ringer is too quiet, it may not trigger the ring detection built into the lifter. Try turning up the ringer volume of your phone.

  • Check the ring tone of the phone. - If your phone's ring tone provides short beeps or plays music, the lifter's microphone may not detect it. Try switching your ring tone to a traditional ring or long beep.

  • Does the phone have different rings? - For example internal calls vs external calls vs transferred calls. Does the phone ring the same for each type of these calls. If so try changing so all calls use the same tone.

  • Attach the optional "external ring detector" cable. This cable plugs into the lifter and provides a small, black microphone. It is included in the plastic bag of lifter accessories. Mount the microphone near your telephone's speaker. Click here for more details.

  • There are 2 versions of the Lifter accessory - HL10 and HL1. The HL1 is a larger older version of the liter with a more sensitive rind detector. Some phones will require the older version of the lifter.

  • Please view the On Line Compatibility Guide to see if the older version (HL1) will be required for your phone.


*Please note the volume of notification beep in the headset cannot be altered, it will always be a low tone triple beep .
