Cordless phone doesnt disconnect?

Hi, I have been having a problem with my cordless phone. I have ADSL internet and ever since I got it about 2 years ago I occasionally have a problem with my phone. It seems almost as if it is not ending the call when I press end?? So I will have a phone conversation with someone and when that call is over I press end and it is like I just left it off the hook. The phone does not appear to be "off the hook" and it is off, but if you press the talk button a few minutes later it will be making that horrible off the hook noise. This phone I have now had for a year and I did have the same problem with my old phone as well. Also I have moved in the last year so I am sure that it is not the house wiring. I have to unplug my phone to get it to work again. Does anyone have a solution to this or an idea as to what could be causing it??? any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Re: cordless phone doesnt disconnect?

Just had a similar issue with my in-laws phone. I had changed the adsl microfilter at that jack and it cleared up the problem but not for long. they ended up buying a new phone. does the trouble persist if you unplug your dsl modem?

Re: cordless phone doesnt disconnect?

One thing you could check immediately is the filter, they do go faulty sometimes, just swop it with another one that you know is a good one.

There is a buzzing sound on my end of the phone line, my computer is on DSL and sometimes it disconnects when the phone rings. I've checked the cords and the phone has a new battery.

You have interference due to the DSL overlapping your phone line its usually very common, make sure you have a DSL filter inline with your phone line , if not I would check out the RJ-45 jack in the wall, your phone jack and make sure that there isnt anything wrong with your Jack, you may have to call your phone company and have the phone tech's check out your wall Jack for any interference, they have special phone line meters to measure all this out.

Good luck,

No tone. When attempting to dial, phone just clicks. DSL internet working fine.

Have you installed the ADSL microfilters wich come with your modem? They are little boxes and should look like this
Plug one side to your phone line, the other side to your phone.

Using home phone causes comcast wireless internet to disconnect

Wireless internet runs at 2.4ghz. Your portable phone is probably also 2.4ghz and is knocking out your internet connection when in use. Look for an 800mhz or 5.8ghz phone as a replacement.

Fax like noise

Is this a new phone?
If it sounds like a faint fax noise, most likely you are running ADSL on the line? Those noises are from the modems talking back and forth to get internet on your phone line. Look to see if you have the line filter before the telephone... this will cut out the fax like tones.
Good Luck!

When my phone comes on it kicks me off my internet conection

if you have dial up (meaning your computer physically dials into the internet) you will get kicked off as your phone will try to use the same line as your modem, if you have broadband that uses your phone line you will need ADSL filters, this is a small box with a wire that connects the phone socket in the wall and the plug on the box is where you plug the phone into, if you have many phones or fax machines they will all need these filters. good luck

No dial tone no incoming calls or outgoing calls

Have You Tried Replacing The Cable Connecting the Base To the Wall Jack? If Not Do That...
If that doesnt work there should be a channel button on the handset try that...If that doesnt work i would say the handset itself is bad.

Uniden 5.8 GHz Digital cordless w 3 handsets interference background noise no matter where we are in the house or which handset we use

This is possibly caused by the internet connection.
Try new ADSL filter.
You need one each per device.
