    The phone does not have a dial tone anymore. It did until I called the phone once, it rang once then went to a busy signal. The digital display showed a call and then it beeped once and the call and dial tone was lost.

Make sure your phone is in Tone and not Pulse dialing. To change it for your phone, just look in your manual. If you don't have one, I have included a link for you to d/l it.

    I have a dial tone but none of the buttons work. So I cannot reset the phone to touch tone. All the buttons are dead.

Status 50 on a fax estudio 45


the number is busy. Try pressing the monitor button and listening for a dial tone. No dial tone means your phone line is not working. If you have dial tone, dial the number you wish to fax and listen to see if it picks up. If you get a busy signal, or hear someone answer, that is why it's not working. If you hear the fax tones, press start and send your document. This is a way to fax that allows you to hear the whole process.

Press a number (0-9) to store the dialed number in that memory location. 4. Press the MEMORY button again. 5. Use the handset number keypad to enter the telephone number (up to 20 digits, including pauses) and press the MEMORY button again to save the number. The unit beeps to confirm. 6. To enter another number in a different memory location, return to step 1 and repeat the process.
Storing a Redial Number 1. Repeat steps 1 through 4 in Storing a Number in Memory. 2. Press the REDIAL button. 3. Press the MEMORY button to store the number. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Phone not ringing


Just recently the Innovage LED touch screen phone stopped ringing. It has worked perfectly as a home office phone since Oct. 2005. Cannot find anything in the tiny manual to correct this problem.

Ge 900 MHz cordless phone set on rotary dialing


Lisa, If the 900MHZ phone is Model 26928M programming for rotary dial usually goes like below, can't hurt to try on any model. TONE/PULSE DIALING This adjustment allows you to select tone (touch-tone) or pulse (rotary) mode dialing. The phone is pre-set for touch-tone use. To set to tone or pulse dialing: 1. Press and hold the program button for two seconds. You will hear a beep. 2. Press the *tone button to select Tone Dialing or press #pause to select Pulse Dialing. 3. Press the program button again. You will hear a confirmation tone.
