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.

Wow, this is your lucky day :-)

From each phone, press PROGRAM 99 and the INTERCOM or CO buttons TWICE, then dial 1-8 and STORE. (default is 2). You can now make each line and intercom different, or each phone (up to 8) different. After you finish with each phone, just pick up and drop the handset back into the cradle to end programming.

The feature is called Ringing Tone Selection.

Hi I have a vtech Hannah Montana Cordless phone and it won't ring. It has a slash through the ringer bell on the screen. I've tried the ringer settings taking the battery out and the tone and...


These can be the only things that are causing your problems:

Ringer mute
You can mute the ringer temporarily when the telephone is ringing.
Press OFF/CLEAR or MUTE to temporarily silence the ringer. The next call will ring normally.

Ringer volume
You can change the handset ringer volume to a comfortable level. The ringer can also be turned off so the telephone does not ring when there are incoming calls.
To adjust the ringer volume:
Press MENU/SELECT to display the menu when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select >RINGER VOLUME, then press MENU/SELECT.
Press or to adjust the volume. A sample of each volume level will be played as you adjust it.
Press MENU/SELECT to save your selection. You will hear a confirmation tone.


Make sure the ringer is on (page 8).
Make sure the telephone line cord and power adapter are plugged in properly (page 2).
The handset may be too far from the telephone base. Move it closer to the telephone base.
There may be too many extension phones on the telephone line to allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Try unplugging some of them.
If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring or local service. Contact the local telephone company (charges may apply).
Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless telephone. Try installing your telephone as far away as possible from the following electronic devices: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cellular telephones, digital telephones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, VCRs, personal computers, kitchen appliances, and other cordless telephones.
Test a working telephone at the telephone wall jack. If another telephone has the same problem, the problem is in the telephone wall jack. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
The telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new telephone line cord.
Wait for the handset to synchronize with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

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.

4. Press the "End" key.

Phones show line in use. Can not find a phone where this is the case. What do I do?


This indicates an off hook condition of the telephone line, to test it you could disconnect the telephone cable from your wireless system base and connect to it a standard wired phone, if you have dial tone and can make and receive calls, the line is OK and the failure is at the base of your wireless telephone system, if you don't have dial tone with the stardard telephone there's a telephone network failure (the telephone wall plate, internal or external cables, etc) and this should be reported to your phone company to be fixed.

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.
