My phone does not ring when a call is received

My callers complain that when they call my phone, it keeps on ringing and nobody answers. The problem is, my phone which is a Uniden Powermax 5.8 ghz cordless just stopped ringing for almost a month now when receiving calls so that I do not know any more when somebody is calling.

I've found this to be a problem with regular phone lines (POTS) and Uniden phones. Uniden phones do not seem to support 90v @ 20hz ringing voltage / frequency. They work fine in every aspect except for ringing. These phones do work well with voip, where you aren't connected to the telephone company and have calls routed over the internet. The boxes that handle the voip calls generally produce less than 90v and work well w/ Uniden phones.

Answering Machine Problem


You have not configured the phone. If you do not set the number of rings before switching to the answering machine, the phone rings ten times then goes to the answering machine.

I have a Uniden D3097. It is ringing only once on incoming calls. I have called from a different phone and it rings several times for the caller then goes to a generic VM not the VM I set up.


By any chance do you have call forwarding turned on? That would account for the single ring and the unfamiliar voicemail. Call forwarding is a service provided by your phone company or cable voice company which allows you to transfer incoming calls to another phone number, such as a cell phone. It's usually activated by pressing a key sequence (such as *72) and entering the number of the phone that you want to receive your calls. It's easy to turn it on and then forget to turn it off. You can turn it off with another key sequence, such as *73. Contact your phone company for the correct code.

Number of rings


Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your
answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer
after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...

Parasonic auto-logic answering machine


Hello, yes it sounds like your trying to connect a "analog device" to a "digital" telephone. If you wish to connect the answering machine to answer your line or lines, you should contact your facilities maintenance department and see if they can "hardwire" your telephone line (your primary phone number), to another jack in your office so your answering machine will work by being placed in "parallel" with your phone system and your primary phone number. If you have more than one phone line (number) you wish for the machine to answer, you will need to ask for a "analog extension" from your digital phone system and have it programmed to ring when any of your roll over lines ring. However, keep in mind the machine can only answer one call at a time, the other simultaneous callers will get a ring no answer until the first caller has hung up. Good luck, hoped to help. CG
