DSL has zapped our AT&T 945 phones

OK, we need a Z800a filter from AT&T only we hear that AT&T is no longer making these available. So what do we do now? Is there someplace we can get the filter to correct our problem?

    We need a Z800a filter from AT&T only we hear that AT&T is no longer making these available. I checked the Radio Shack site and they say they do not have one. So what do we do now? Is there someplace we can get the filter to correct our problem?

    This filter needs to go on the telephone line coming into the building. At Stapesl, Radio Shack, etc. they have single line filters that plug into each phone. From the AT&T manual, they suggest the outside filter which they do not provide any longer. So how do we find this Z800a filter?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

AT&T may no longer be making the Z800A line filter available to them but said filter is manufactured for/by Lucent Technologies (Lucent Z800A isolation filter). Alcatel-Lucent maybe reached at 1 800-252-2835.

Should your concern be with the intercom system, then this could be addressed by adding said filter to Line 1 only or for that matter any replacement telephone line filter and/or to all the incoming telephone lines (4).

Would appreciate an update on any developments. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

An AT&T Z800A filter isolates the splitter from your phone system and reduces interference with the signals used by the system phones to communicate with each other. You can obtain an AT&T Z800A filter at no charge by calling 1 800 222- 3111. You will also receive a diagram showing the proper installation of the AT&T Z800A filter with a DSL splitter, DSL modem and your system phones. AT&T cannot supply the DSL splitter.
Lucent technologies also now makes the filter.

Just about any filter will work - it is simply for reducing the interference in the line. Check Radio Shack - Best Buy - or a local telephone installation company. AT&T may be able to reference a replacement part - even if they no longer manufacture it.
Thank you for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

I have tried everything to get my printer to receive faxes but to no avail. Have reinstalled drivers, set distinctive rings over and over again, unplugged and replugged in everything. I'm at my wits...


If you are using a DSL Internet connection you must put a DSL filter on the phone line going to the printer. Without the filter, all the printer is hearing is internet noise..

I have new direct tv installation. now my dsl keeps dropping out. i unplug the direct tv box and everything is ok?


It sounds like they have given you the base DSL service with the minimal speed. If they did, it won't be enough to run two things at one time on the same dsl line. Call AT&T and check your speed or service that was installed and ask if it is enough to run to computers on the same line at once.
Also make sure that there is no filter on your dsl line that goes to your computer.

Here is another tip; the longer the phone line from the wall to your computer, the slower the dsl service. Longer cords slow down your internet.

When I use my telephone there is a sound as if I using dial up.


You used to have dial-up, so I guess you've switched to something better. DSL, perhaps? If that's the case, you need to have DSL filters on all phone jacks except the one your DSL modem plugs into. If you use a phone on an unfiltered jack, you'll hear a rushing noise in the background, and it will almost always severely degrade or cut off your DSL connection as well.

If this isn't what you're hearing, please post a follow-up with some more information about what noises you hear and problems you have, and I'll try to help further.

The phone has a buzz on it and it is not the line it's the phone att945


Buzz may be from many different sources.

First, is there DSL on this line? Make sure you have a filter on the line going to the phone or plug your phone into the jack coming out of the DSL modem.

Next, remove any other device from the line and check the buzz. Sometimes a fax machine, computer or credit card machine will create noise on the line.

Then check the connections in the wall, any splitter and in the phone. Make sure the wires are straight before you plug in the phone cord.

If that does not help, take a regular phone and plug each wire into that phone and listen for the buzz, it may be a pinched wire.

Or, you may have a wire running past something that has a large electrical current. Try moving the wires away from a television, florescent light, etc.

Lastly, these phones have a cable length maximum. If you have too much cable in the office they will act as an antenna and this will add buzz to the line.

Speaker phone problem


It is possible. I have ATT 945(?) 4 line phones that communicate via a DSL-like signal between units to do special things like intercom, etc.

What I have in my setup is that I have a seperate line from the point of entry of my phone line to my DSL modem.

I then have TWO stacked DSL filters PER LINE that feed the main phone line running to all the phones.

Be AWARE that when using the speaker phone there is a modulation of the gains both directions. When you talk OR have a noisy background noise, the gain of the speaker is cut down to prevent feedback. And when you go silent, the speaker gain is increased for you to hear the other side of the call. Essentially it takes as much discipline as the old two-way radios... one talker at a time with these speaker phones AND very little background noise.

Phone line won't hang up


I would check the DSL filters. Your phone should not interfere with the DSL. Make sure there is a filter on any line going into your phones. If there is a filter replace it and see if that works. Also, check other equipment on the line, fax, computer, credit card machine. They will need filters from the DSL too. Remove these other devices and check the line for the problem then add them back one at a time.

Our Epson Sylus CX9400Fax Series is not receiving or sending faxes. We have already done the phone call to India thing for 90 minutes. All settings were changed and tested. They are now back to factory...


Ok, here's a check list for you.
SENDING

Check the following:

  • Make sure the phone cable is connected correctly and verify that the phone line works by connecting a phone to it.


  • Make sure that your recipient's fax machine is turned on and working.


  • If you connected the Epson Stylus CX to a DSL phone line, you must install a DSL filter to the line or you won't be able to fax. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter.


  • If your phone line has static or other noise problems, turn off the ECM (Error Correction Mode) setting and try faxing again.

    Follow these steps to turn off the ECM setting:

    1. Press Setup.


    2. Select Fax Settings, then press OK. You see this screen:

Phones will not release hold when picking up on a different phone


Make sure you have filters on the lines between your DSL and your phones. Use the line out from the back of your modem to split to your phones if you don't have any filters. You may have to take line 2 from the back of the DSL modem to send to all of the phones. This is usually a filtered source and should isolate your phones from the DSL. Put the filter on any other devices that are sharing line 2 too, fax, computer, credit card machine etc.

With broadband connected I can't hear a thing on the phone. We get lots of static, voices are very quiet. I have a phone line splitter on the line.


If you have DSL for your broadband connection, you need a filter on every phone jack. These filters are provided by your DSL provider
