    My phone does not have the dial tone either. HELP!! It is hooked up to the modem with my internet and the internet is working but the phone isn't.

    The phone says "parallel set on", meaning that another phone on the same line is in use, but really there isn't. I've unplugged the base, waited 15 seconds, reconnected, but still cannot get the dial tone to come on. The dial tone does work on my panasonic hand set connected to the same line, and no it is not in use.

That seems very strange, I can't think of why a phone would screw up your line and dial tone, it may just be a coincidence, the best advice I can give you is to check for voltage on the line, to do this you need a multi-meter and access to the connecting wires on the wall or the line box, short of that sounds like you need a phone tech to take a look at your lines. sorry

Hope this helps.

EL52500 Phone base & 4 handsets have static, message Line in Use. Bought new phone, charged, connected - it says no line. Have dial tone at phone line into house.


Sounds like your phone has a short. If you see the message "line in use" call your number, is it busy, now unplug your phone and call your number again, is it ringing? Indicates a short, possibly in your equipment. As for message " no line" is the electric connected to the phone and did you check for dial tone in tat particular jack with a known, working phone first...just to make sure there's dt @ the jack. Good Luck :)

My phone says check Tel Line


Sounds like your telephone line might be dead. If you have a gray or tan telephone box on the outside of your house you can plug your phone in there to test the line. If you get dialtone then thrers a problem in your house wiring, if you don't get dial tone then the line is dead and you need to conact your telco provider.

Phone sees call, but can't pick-up. Can't get d-tone to call out?


Just a suggestion (without knowing what troubleshooting steps from your manual you may have taken): Remove the batteries from the back of the handset and then put them back in after a few moments. My Panasonic KX-TGA8231B (DECT6.0) phones were acting up just like your Uniden is. All functions returned after this power interrupt "reset" with the batteries was done. Hope that helps. Good luck. - - -Gerry

I have no dial tones on our two uniden 5.8GHz cordless phones. New batteries were installed.


Make sure the phone and the phone base is turned on. Check the phone cables at the back of the phone base where you charge your cordless phone. It should be properly connected to the phone jack on the wall and at the back of the phone base. Try unplugging and replugging it back in. If that fails, try changing the phone cable. If still there's nothing, try to connect another phone on the phone line. If you get a dial tone, it means you have a problem with the wireless phone set, if not, contact your phone company.

How do I test my phone jacks? I have no dial


There should be a gray box on the exterior of your house called a network interface device(NID). Unscrew the left half (or lower on some) marked customer side. there should be 1 or 2 places that have 2 screw terminals and a small telephone cord that is pluged into a small jack. Unplug the small cord and plug in one of your phones from your house into the jack. If you get dial tone then the problem is either in one of your phones or in the house wiring. If you still dont get dial tone then the line is dead on from the telco side(call the phone company).

Uniden TCX805 Cordless "loses" dial tone


Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.
