I have a Serene CL-60AP phone. It receives calls but I can't get it to dial out. I hear it dialing like an old rotary phone but then the dial tone comes back.


You need to change the dialing mode to tone rather than pulse.

If you would like to know how to do this refer to page 26 of the instruction manual
50. DIALING MODE SETTING (TONE OR PULSE)
page 15 on the pdf file below
http://hearinglosshelp.com/store/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2015/02/CL60Ausermanual.pdf

Depends on what your telephone exchange accepts as a dialing signal. Strange thing is phone is factory set to tone but it seems to sound like your phone is on pulse.

Need to change phone back to tone dialing


Here's what the manual says: Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing) (HS1 only) Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most phone networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, follow the steps below to modify your phone?s settings: With the phone in standby, press and hold [cid/menu]. Press [vol/ / ] to move the pointer to select DIAL. Press [select/channel] to set the phone to pulse dialing. Press [end]. Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other handsets. Hope this helps out. K
