Use of AC wall plug with switch

My new phone system WDSS5335 + 2 says to use a wall AC plug with no switch on. We do not have one in the house all our AC wall plugs have isolation switches. Why can i not use one of the AC plugs in the house as the new phone will be no good to us

    thanks for your response but i am referring to the three pinned AC wall plug for the 240 volt adaptor. my wall plug has a isolation swith to turn of appliances as required. The instructions state that the wall plug must not have a switch if that is the case i need a electrictian to wire three new plugs which is expensive. What difference does it make

I think they are referring to a wall plug that has a light switch to turn it on and off.
As long as your phone system uses a normal phone plug you should be fine.

    Well, as long as the switch remains ON, that should not cause a problem.

    However, turning off the power is bad for phone systems. It is the same as just unplugging your computer when it is running. Eventually, it stops working, and must be re-built.

    Having seperate lines installed would elimitate any accidents. Or you can just put some tape over the switch, and say "Don't touch!".

    Choice is yours.

The coord connecting to the phone jack will not turn on the phone, is there an actual ac plug for this phone?


Since a 7456 is a phone for the Panasonic KXTD digital phone system, what are you plugging it into? It requires at the least, a TD-308/816/1232 KSU in front of it.

I don't get a dial tone when I pick up the phone both the base and the extention both are dead but I have a fax machine also on another line and it works ok


to test the phone system. unplug the phones that are not working from the telephone jack. Install a phone on that phone jack that you know works (an old one or a cheap new phone). If the new phone works on the phone line in question, then your cordless phones are the problem and not the house phone line. If you plug the known working phone into the wall and it now does not work, then you have a problem with the wall outlet or the connection to the house. If it is a phone line or house connection problem, call your phone company. If it is your cordless unit, try them at a different phone outlet or at some other house to see if they work anywhere.

Phone is not connecting


Had the same problem with my v-tech portables. I unplugged the main phone from the wall outlet, electric outlet and unplugged the coordinating wires from the base. I also unplugged the extra phones from electric and detached their wires - waited a minute or two and plugged everything back in and waited for another minute or so and what do you know - my phones are working again as good as new!

It keeps on beeping


This happened to me today!
Do the following in order:

1.take battery out of back of phone
2. unplug all phone lines from phone, then unplug all phone lines from wall
3. unplug ac from phone, then from wall
Wait 30 seconds.
In this order:
1. replace battery
2. replace phone line(s) to phone, then to wall
3. replace ac to phone, then to wall.

These steps solved it for me! Good luck.

We have a number of phones in the house....none works. When the phone is picked up all you get is a buzzing sound


This could be any number of things here are a few ideas to help isolate the problem:
  1. Disconnect all phones from the wall jacks
  2. Connect a phone to each wall jack, one at a time and test. This will help you determine if one of the all jacks is bad. Use the same phone for testing each jack. If you have a phone that does not require AC power, use that phone to test. If the same phone works at every wall jack, one of your phones is bad. You can now test each phone alone until you find the bad phone.
  3. If after testing each wall jack, you still have buzzing on the line you will need to contact the telephone company to test the line coming into the house or apartment.
  4. If you live in a house and can access the "box" where the phone lines enter the house, there is usually a jack where you can plug the test phone into and check the lines BEFORE they enter your home.
  5. If you test at the entry box and your phone works, you have a problem with the wires in your home. If you still have the buzzing, it is probably a telephone company problem
Good Luck!

Intertel phone system died


Look for power on the InterTel system, any kind of lights on the system is an indication you at least have power to the system. If you are plugged into a power strip and have no lights, remove the power cord from the strip and plug it directly into an AC outlet. Be sure to turn off the system before plugging it into a wall outlet, and then turn the system back on. Good Luck

Can't hear caller


This problem often results from a defective handset cord--check the handset cord by switching it with a good one. If that solves the problem, replace the cord. With a portable phone, substitute a transmitter from another telephone--replace if necessary.
