The phone goes straight to the answering service, without making the ringing tone, even when we are in the house( so we would hear it ), at the other end it seems as if there is nothing wrong, as freinds are leaving messages.The second stand/charger also, somtimes does not work. Everthing else, the main phone,stand & charger work perfectly.

Not knowing your phone make & model I can offer advice from my own previous handsets, please Go into your settings menu, select phone setting & then answer setting, choose the longest amount of ring cycles offered, if this is not an option, try selecting a longer ring tone, or downloading a song as a ring tone, which will then play the length of the song making it ring longer... I hope this helps....
What is happening when a call comes in are they getting a busy signal? If so your line is shorted out.. unplug all phones and see if caller hears a ring.. Then 1 at a time plug phones in. Check for a dial tone and press a digit, hang up and check and see if dial tone returns, repeat this on all phones, until you get to the phone that does not give you dial tone back after dialing a digit. That will be your bad phone... If the line was ring busy after all phones unplugged, call repair service..
If your printer is connected to a modem make sure that the port has a dial tone. To check for dial tone, try to plug in a phone to the same port that you printer is connected to. If it doesn't have dial tone, you might want to check with your phone provider. Or you can plug in the printer straight to a wall jack.
Once the printer is connected to a line that has dial tone, you can then setup the printer to receive faxes. To set it up, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering.
If you have an answering machine, set your printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your answering machine. If not, set it to pick up on the 5th ring that way you will still have time to pick up the phone if it's a voice call.
If you have a voicemail service from your phone provider, you'll need to contact your phone provider to get a distinctive ring feature. Once you'll have that feature, you can assign a distinctive ring to your printer. You can find that under Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Ring Pattern.
When the ring tone cuts out, your caller goes to your voice mail, right?
The length of time before an unanswered caller goes to voice mail is called your "ring cycle" and is set by your phone carrier (e.g. Vodaphone, Verizon, Orange, etc.)
There shouldn't be any charge to change your ring cycle, and some cell carriers will let you adjust it from your account settings on their website, but the simplest answer is just to call your carrier's customer service and ask them to change the ring cycle for your number.
For cell carriers in the US, you can call 611 from your phone to reach your carrier's customer service, but I don't know about other countries' mobile carriers.
one way to solve this, find a phone number that is not working. on your phone you have several answer settings. ring and answer, ring and let it go to your voice mail, and the ignore button. that will send it straight to your voice mail, or any other number you set it to go to. their computer will pickup the tones of the out of service phone and drop you from their calling cue.
Send will work on any phone lines
fax machines are often set to only answer 'secondary' ring tones, double triple or higher. When the line was repaired the phone company may have dropped the special tone off your secondary fax line number, fax will not answer without that tone.
Check in the fax answer settings, what the ring tone is, specific instruction on menu settings in your user guide,
Ring your fax line, and check the tone.
If single number fax/phone, check that the fax is set to asnwer all calls then pass on non faxes
