Question about Lands Phones
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
