The "line in use" indicates that there is not enough current on your line, either there is a broken wire and the phone is not getting any current, or there is a short on your line reducing the current on your line.

you should unplug your phone and check with a diffrent phone to see if there is any dial tone on the jack that you have a problem with... if everything is good with a diffrent phone then it is likely that the trouble is your phone, if the trouble still exists, bring a corded phone to the NID outside of your home, and test if there is dial tone there, and that you can make and receive calls... if the trouble goes away, they you need to troubleshoot further inside your home, if the trouble still exists, then you have a trouble outside that your local phone company needs to take care of, and you should contact them so that they can make the repairs..

Why made phone early now cant just get busy signals?

Sounds like your phone or line is now short circuit and is holding the line so it appears busy to incoming callers. Try disconnecting the pnone and line right up to the incoming point of your house to find the problem.

We cannot receive faxes. Gives a busy signal.

Unplug the phone line from the machine. Wait a few minutes then try calling your fax number from a phone while leaving the phone line disconnected from the machine. If it rings fine from the phone, then re-install the phone line to the fax machine. Try making the call again. If you now get a busy signal then the modem in your fax machine has gone bad and is holding the line open. Make sure when installing the phone line you are placing the cord into the "line" port on the machine and not the phone port.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Panasonic KX-TGA101 not working

By jim_giardine on Jan 03, 2010
My parents have had their Panasonic KX-TGA101 for a little over a year and it just stopped working. It no longer rings when a call comes in. Plus when we try to answer a call or place a call all we get is a busy signal both auditory and in the display window.
SOLUTION: you might want to change a new phone line, that's maybe the culprit, most of the time is the phone line is worn out first due to too many reasons.

When trying to fax, iam getting a fast busy signal, this problem just strated

This could be related to the fax machine, but more than likely it's a phone line issue. Try sending a fax manually by using the fax machine's speaker or "on-hook", then manually dial the number. Listen carefully as the machine dials and make sure it's even dialing out. Do not hit start until you hear the other fax machine pick up. If the "fast" busy signal occurs before dialing is complete or right after, have your phone line checked.

Dispalys says line in use

Try another phone. The line may be dead or the wiring to the jack may be bad. If possible test at the box where the line comes into the facility. Also if you have another phone, fax or computer modem, dsiconnect these as one of them may be "off hook" and killing the line.

I have a panasonic phone model number KX-TG6022B and wheather the phone is on the base or not, it says line in use. The line isn't in use though. I've tried unplugging both phones from the base and wait,...

sounds simple
3 things to look at

lets start with obvious i hope you have manual for phone still cause typen instructions for deregistering phone is long type
the reason phone could be showing its still in use is because phone needs to be deregistered and then reregistered back on the hand set base

the other thing is one of your neighbors has tapped your phone line giving you this busy signal

or say you still using dial up on your comp this will show a busy signal cause its using your phone line to get online

Md 760 series cordless telephone system


Try unplugging all telephone (including the base unit), then try to call the number again. If there is still a busy signal, then the problem is with your telephone line/connection and you need to call your phone provider. On the other hand if the number rings, then chances are that base unit is defective (or one of your other phones physically connected to the tel line.).

To verify that it is the base unit or one of the other wired telephones,  reconnect them one by one and determine which of them will cause the busy signal. Problems like this can be caused by a power surge, near lightning strike or a simple component failure.

If it is the base unit, it is very likely an electronic problem and therefore would require familiarity with components and circuitry diagnosis, soldering and use of a DVM. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified phone technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
