with cordless phones the problem is that the hand sets have to be recognized by the base station ( paired) and unless you have the exact hand piece make and model this pairing and recognition will not happen
if you can get 2nd hand units for the 3325 base then the base will accept them ( any number of additions ) but if the hand piece is different it will not work
you you need extra hand pieces then it may be best to consider a new system where you can buy extra phones and chargers
stop trying to dial out, you can't anyway if the phone s being used. the reason you cant hear when buttons are pressed is because they bleep to send a signal to the exchange which will over-ride the other phones.
For the most part, the answer is "you can't". An MLX phone's extra port can operate a 3156-MFM module and derive the extra extension. There may be some conditions, like no DTMF receiver, and a few other problems.
I emailed Motorola support. Email bounced back and was redirected to their broadband support. Not what i needed at all. Tried again, same result. Gave up in the end and contacted BT who round a fault at the exchange which was blocking my Caller Id. Once they fixed this, the answer machine worked too. Weird. Especially as I plugged in an older phone earlier to test it and the answer machine on that one worked. Nil points to Motorola for support I have to say....
Sounds like the answering machine is picking up the telephone line and not releasing it.
Hence the busy signal, cause the answering machine has the line off hook. It's like leaving your telephone off hook, the next caller will get a busy signal...
The answering machine might be bad... have you noticed that you were talking on the phone and hung up then the next call would be the busy signal? Maybe test this out.
Do you have the correct voltage to the answering machine, too much power or too little power can do funny things to telephone equipement.
After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you. THEOH
Just some Tips - Do you have any other phones or fax machine in the house? Check to make sure they are all hung up or press the off/ hang up button. If so, disconnect them until one brings back a dial tone when disconnected Also try cleaning the charger contacts with an eraser to the charger sends a signal that the phone is hung up.
Hope this helps!
