Continuous ringing I have had this problem before and the technical support gave me a reprogramming code that reset the phone. I have tried the code in my manual, STORE, *,#,*,# MUTE and it does not work. Help!

Re: Continuous ringing

I found this site because MY phone won't stop ringing. I was so happy to see your problem posted, because I was hoping to coattail for a solution. BUT then I found an old folded printout (2-28-03) of a FAQ from TTSystems (now out of business, I guess) that solved the problem. Here it is: The extensions have to be reprogrammed after a power outage. (My trouble started after a big electrical storm knocked out power to our building.) I guess the same is true of loss of power for any reason, maybe even unplugging them if no batteries, etc. Anyway, each phone's extension defaults to 11 after power is lost. The ringing happens because all the phones have the same extension number--11. So, reprogram them so that they have an extension number from 11 through 22. 1. Press [STORE] 2. Press [1][0] 3. Enter the two digit number you wish to assign to this phone. 4. Press [MUTE] A short ring will be heard to signal successful programming. I am so ridiculously happy that I fixed this. I hope it works for you.

So you're saying you can dial a phone number, but when the voicemail system answers you can't dial an extension number ? If that's the case, that means your phone system reset. Generally that means all phones will have access to only line 1 and 2, and that they'll be ringing on all phones. The date would usually change to Jan. 1st 1980, but caller-ID might override that. All line programming would be set to pulse, which would be the cause of you not being able to dial an extension number a voicemail system answers. It would also mean that when you do dial a phone number it takes a while before you hear it ringing. (Because the phone system is dialing in pulse instead of tone, if you stand next to the phone system you'll probably hear it go)

... Long story short, your entire phone system needs to be reprogrammed. I suggest only doing a partial reprogramming, then unplugging the power for a few minutes and check to see if the programming stuck. If not, the battery in your system also needs to be changed.

There could be DC voltage on the ringer circuit. When a phone line is not in use there should be 0 Volts on the ringer circuit. Sometimes a device connected to your line can "leak" voltage on to the ringer circuit, and some phones will see this as a continuous ring signal.

1. Check all of the telephone cables and any power cables - are they securely plugged in?
2. Remove every device connected to your phone line except the phone that was ringing continuously.
3. If the ringing stops, put the devices back one at a time and see which one causes the problem.
4. If the ringing does not stop, the fault is either in the telephone or your master socket.
5. If you have another phone that is known to be working, try it out to see if it has the continuous ringing.
6. If the problem no longer occurs, there could be a problem the telephone equipment, and you should contact the telephone's manufacturer for support.
7. If the test phone has the continuous ringing, call your telephone provider and tell them that there may be a short circuit in your phone line.
8. If the problem happens only with your cordless phone, and not a corded phone, then it could be interference from a device such as a wireless broadband router or microwave or the cordless handset batteries may not be charging properly.

I am betting the time and date is wrong as well.
Sounds like your system lost its programming.
call in a professional, they need to reprogram the entire system.
