Question about Phones

Phone button tone replaces dial tone

I received what at first sounded like a fax call but then I heard a series of tones over the phone. I hung up. Upon receiving my next call from known caller, we were interupted by the same series of tones over the same phone. This noise disappeared when I used another phone in the house. I no longer hear these tones on phone.
Now when I pick up the effected phone first I hear a tone before the dial tone. When I try to make a call it does not go through, saying I must dial a 1 first which also does not work. Also noticed all buttons on phone now have same tone vs their own tone when pushed. Other phones in house work fine.
Appears I receved a call with tones which has sabatoged my phone. How is this possible and can I fix my phone or is it now trash? How can I protect this from happening again? Phone Co. has put on a trace for future.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!

You first need to determine if it is THAT phone or the jack it is plugged into. I would swap the phone with another in th ehouse and see if the problem stays with the phone or stays with the jack. If its the phone take it back or trash it. If the problem is the jack and if you have "lines keeper service" the phone company will repair the jack for you. If you do not have the inside wire insurance, ask the phone company how much it will cost to repair. You may want to get a private technician that will fix it for you for much less. Good Luck

Dial tone nortel phone


It\'s in system programming: feature CONFIG, Terminals & Sets, enter ext #, Prime Line: set to I/C (for intercom dial tone) or Line xxx. It is probably set to None based on your description.

Why no dialing tone


no dialing tone indicates an open line or an extension that has not been hung up properly. IF you have a corded phone then it may be in the cord (broken at the hand piece or at the base) On the technical side it may be from the wires in are not paired properly ( go google and check for phone line pairing) and on the financial side the account has not been paid

Phone does not dial out any numbers.


Check the side of the phone. Look for TONE / PULSE selection.

MOVE it back and forth and leave it to TONE.

Test it again,

M7310 Non-Stop Dial Tone


Intercom button/s provide dial tone when they are pressed. They are required to call other phones on your system.
Sounds like your button is stuck or issue with the motherboard.

When preparing making a call, I get a series of short dial tones.


Have you tried erasing all of your recorded messages? Usually the short dial tone beeps mean you have a pending message.

Uniden TCX805 Cordless "loses" dial tone


Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.

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.
