Question about Lands Phones

2 Answers

Greetings. Getting a "line in use" message on both handsets. No dial tone on either, no one can call in on that line either. This has happened before, usually unplugging the phone line and/or power will resolve it but not this time. All other phone lines in the house(different numbers)work fine. Any ideas, please let me know. Thanks, Scott

    Thanks for all the suggestions that came in.  I think I've determined it is either that specific phone line or the phone jack is bad.  I tried resetting the phones as suggested but no good, then tested that line by plugging in a hard line phone, no dial tone.  Replaced the line with a brand new one, plugged hard line phone back in, still no dial tone.  Guess I'll call the phone company, strange that it would be the one line but I think I have a service contract that includes the indoor equipment so will have them come out.
    Thanks to all, at least the problem has been narrowed down.

The only thing I can see when searching for a solution is that if you have different types or makes of phones in the house and they communicate trough antennas, instead of all pluging into the line. it may be the cause of your problem. The phone is getting confused. the posts I read about this issue all call for a hard reset. just an idea see if in the manual it can be switched to an alternate channel to eliminate the frequency mix up, it also could be coming from a neighboors phone if within 150 feet, that woul really explain it. good luck, Gym

Try unplugging all phone cables (both power and lines cable) , wait ten minutes and plug it back. This will reset the phone.

Try also a different phone to test the lines.

    If you get the same problem only on the same line, and you get busy signal, even using a different phone, then it is a line problem, in this case you need to call your phone service provider to fix the problem.

    I tell you more, if this has happened before, and usually unplugging the phone line and/or power fixed it, that means that there was a short in the phone line cable (replace it now), and now it is likely that either the phone or the phone socket are defective, test a different phone on same socket to find out where the problem is.

All of my handsets say phone in use and i cant get them to hang up


Please check the line input at the base, if the cord is damaged or the line has no dial tone, you'll receive that message in all headsets, you could test by connecting any basic wired phone to the same cord, if there's dial tone maybe you have a defective handsets base.

I was storing some extension numbers and spead dial numbers and I must have done something wrong as anytime I pick up handset to make a call a 'reorder tone' message comes up on the display- this is before...


So don't pick up the handset :-)

There are some line preference and pickup dial programs that just happen to sit in PROGRAM 1x. My guess is that you have assigned an empty or invalid pickup dial code to the phone.

Try this first. Press PROGRAM and dial 12 ENTER. Is the Hot Line mode ON? If it is, press SEL and ENTER. Wow. That was easy :-)

Didn't work? Let's go for Preferred Line Outgoing next. Dial PROGRAM 19 and 3 ENTER. That makes the intercom prime (0 is none, 1 is idle line 2 (xx) is a specific line).

If you tried both of these, and still no joy, then it's time to reset the phone. The problem with that is you have to dial the code IMMEDIATELY as you're picking up the handset. Good luck with that. The reset code is 79# or 790.

Error message -using handset (no handset on the machine. mfd - 1515


If this appear for the first time see the follow, if this started to appear after a time of usage you will need to call a Ricoh technician, sorry but i cannot gain some help in this type of problems.
see do you use a cord with two wires or four for Ricoh when using some telephone centrals like a Panasonic it's better to use a two wired cord for the line, if this still do not help, you will need to call the telephone central technician to set the line for the Ricoh fax.

No dial tone


Please disconnect your cordless phones from telephone jacks throughout the home. The "line in use" is say that you have a short on the line, or a phone off the hook. So disconnect lines, then replug 1 corded phone in to check for dial tone. If working, continue to plug in 1 phone at a time(rechecking working one each time) to find the equipment that is causing you heartache.

Dial Tone - Number Dialed does not go through


The problem is possibly the keypad on the phone. Try another phone , preferrably a standard corded phone. If you still cannot break the dial tone, then the problem is with the telephone line (phone company)
