Question about GE -29196 Telephone w/Caller ID

Open Question

Problem Hi, I have a GE SlimLine Deluxe in my garage (needed a cheap phone), and sometimes, when I pick up the receiver, there is no dial tone. The line cord is plugged in, but the vinyl cover on the coiled cord has slipped down to show bare wires. Waht's wrong?

SOURCE: ge 900 MHz cordless phone set on rotary dialing

Lisa, If the 900MHZ phone is Model 26928M programming for rotary dial usually goes like below, can't hurt to try on any model. TONE/PULSE DIALING This adjustment allows you to select tone (touch-tone) or pulse (rotary) mode dialing. The phone is pre-set for touch-tone use. To set to tone or pulse dialing: 1. Press and hold the program button for two seconds. You will hear a beep. 2. Press the *tone button to select Tone Dialing or press #pause to select Pulse Dialing. 3. Press the program button again. You will hear a confirmation tone.

You can download the manual for this phone from GE here. It explains (page 30) that the light remains on when the phone is charging or the line is in use, and flashes when you have an incoming call or waiting voicemail if you have that feature on your phone line. Your phone is working properly.

(This was supposed to be a solution. I clicked the wrong place.)

SOURCE: GE 2-9450 CORDED PHONE PROBLEM

I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they didn't lose power. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the rec post inside the phone jack. Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension.
Good luck!

No dial tone but the rest of the phome works


If you have no dial tone (the noise when you pick up the receiver) your line is at fault and you need to contact your supplier. If the calls are coming in and going out but the handset is not ringing, it could be a problem with your main socket. The front plate on new sockets seems to be the part which distributes the calls to handsets. We had this problem. Changed the front plate and it worked. If you've no calls coming in you need a technician and this will cost.

Panasonic KX-TCD220E - pulsating busy signal for a few seconds then dial tone


If that pulsating tone is anything like what I sometimes here on my phone, then it has nothing to do with your phone. It's your telephone company telling you that there's unheard voicemail on their system. You'll need to contact your telephone service provider for instructions on how to access their voicemail system.

How do i reprogram model ge 2-9267a


pull out the plastic tab that holds the piece of paper with the names of the people you speed dial. the instructions are under there.  pick up handset - ignore dial tone or dial tone going away - press "memory store" button - dial the number - press one of the eight buttons for location - hang up phone. that's it - your new number overwrites any old number that was in there. (then write the name of person on the piece of paper.)

Cannot receive calls and dial tone flashing


You have a feature active on your phone it's more than likely a call forward feature which would redirect you calls. The broken dial tone or stutter dial tone is an indicator a feature is active. Contact you system admin for the clear all feature code and the clear all call forwarding codes.

Purchased 2 ge phones model 29585 installed and ok for several days.now when picking up receiver to dial out we get a pulsating busy signal for a few seconds and then the dial tone and are able to dial,...


That sound is notification of voice mail. This phone does not disconnect incoming calls on answering machine extension so your phone is actually off the hook for hours without your knowledge.
