On the D1680, D1481, and similar phones,
the three levels of ringer loudness plus
"off " are set at the base using the same
[ - ] Volume [ + ] buttons used to adjust
the answering machine message volume.
Pushing the [ + ] and [ - ] keys will
set the ringer to be louder or softer. A
number in the "message counter display"
will report the relative loudness...pushing
[ - ] below level-1 loudness will show
"0" loudness and an announcement of
"Ringer off" will be spoken. From here,
a single push of [ + ] will turn the ringer
on to level-1 and play a ~10 second
sample of the ringer at that volume:
while it is playing the sample ring,
subsequent pushes of [ + ] or [ - ]
will toggle the loudness levels of
( off, 1, 2, 3 ).
I found my owners manual and to adjust the ringer on either the Base Station or Hand Set as follows:
with the hand set in place just use the base arrow up or down to go from 0 (off) to 2 (loud) and on the hand set just use the arrows for high low or off. Just bew sure to have the hand set on the base before adjusting the ringer
Yours is a little different from mine, but maybe this will help some, I hope. On the "talk" side, there is a button (2nd from right on mine) which says "loud" over the button, and "ringer" under the button. Pushing the button once gives you the soft ring. Pushing the button again will give you the loud ring. If you have gone to the loud ring, you will get the loud ring on the first time. Then you can push it again to get you back to the soft ring. I hope this helps.
You didn't indicate exact model of your phone. However I have indicated the procedure used for common Vtech's 5.8Ghz phones

If the phone has a dial tone, adjust the ringer loudness (this adjustment is on
the bottom of some phones). Also check to see if there is a switch for turning
off the ringer--and turn it on.
cases, you can't connect more than five phones to a given line or they won't
ring properly. If this is your situation, you may have to disconnect one or more
phones, or at least turn their ringers off.
