Question about Motorola Mobility MA580 5.8GHz Digital Cordless Phone with Answerer

1 Answer

Lots of static heard during use of this phone.

My phone is less than 2 years old. Am hearing lots of static over the handset. Lots of background hum heard during answered calls. Can basically only receive calls. Cannot place a call as there is a burst of static when the phone attempts to dial the phone number. The owners manual is no help. Checked all connections and they appear OK. Battery appears to be fully charged.

Re: Lots of static heard during use of this phone.

Time for a new phone. Most likely there are some bad solder connections and they could be anywhere. A 2 year old battery should not cause such severe problems so I'd spend the money on a new phone before a new battery.

How do i fix my phone, it rings, but i cannot dial out and there is lots of static and buzz when i pick up the phone

Do you have other phones on the same line?
Are they clear or do they have the static. If it is a telephone company old copper line and it happens on all phones it maybe a Telco problem.

I was cleaning my phone and I pressed on something and now there is music playing that i can not stop,I don't know how to stop the music,my phone is panasonic KX-T7730

Here are two methods to turn off background music, one of these should work depending on which Panasonic phone system your phone is connected to.

1) With phone idle, press the 1 key on the dial pad (turns off background music when it is on and turns on background music when it is off).

2) With phone idle, press intercom button then dial *751 on the dial pad followed by 0 on the dial pad to turn off background music(confirmation tone will be heard) and end by lifting handset and replacing in cradle. To turn background music on, press intercom button then dial *751 on the dial pad followed by 1 or 2 on the dial pad to select the background music source(confirmation tone will be heard) and end by lifting handset and replacing in cradle.

So much static I can not hear properly

The line that stays lit for line 2 is just the way it is.. not a problem. If you only have one phone line and a two line phone you will always have the one (non working line 2 ) lit.
Have you replaced the cord to the handset? Many times it is a bad cord that causes static.

I am having major static on both hand sets. I have reported to the phone company. This has just started to happen in the last 2 weeks. I have nothing new electronically. My land phone plugged in is not...

It is possible one of your neighbors purchased a similar phone and you are on the same channel.
Check your instructions and see if you change the channel.

I hope this helps.

Heavy Static on phones. Can't hear caller. No caller ID

Room monitoring mode is basically a type of Intercom.

Press the *TONE/exit button on the handset to exit room monitor mode.

I will provide you with link to the user manual of the phone. Have a check at it. Might be useful.

Static in the GE 29460 GE-2

I have the same problem with my GE 29460 GE-2 phone. I took apart the handset and the source of the humming and static is a bad (cheap) microphone. I have swapped in a spare handset from another phone which works for the time being... it doesn't fit the phone cradle very well. When I find a junked phone (any wired phone would probably work) with a good microphone I may try soldering in the mike into the old handset... its only a 2 wire solder job. I'm PO'd at GE for making junk so I don't want to buy the parts for this, if I could find them.

Lots of static & noise during calls

First, do you have any other phones? Have you eliminated the phone line itself as the problem?

If there are sound problems in multiple cordless phones and the problem is not in the wiring or the line, than the base unit is transmitting a poor quality signal. Try tapping the base unit to see if the problem changes any... light taps up to a typical knocking on a door strength taps are all that should be necessary.

Background static

1. How old are you phone lines in the house?  Check the "main" terminal connections.  Clean and reconnect.  (Make note how the wires are connected).

2. The power transformers for the phones maybe you trouble also. Unplug all except the main unit.   Check each transfer one at a time. Do you have static?  One or more may be your problem.  Replace the bad ones if needed.
