GE 4 line phone model 2-9450 Wont get a Dial tone

I have tried all the suggestions posted here, found all manuals. But I still cant seem to get any of my 5 phones working. They all were disconnected while we moved our new location. And when I went to hook them up. They cant get past this two tone beep every time I try to set them up. The only thing I think could be wrong is that this new location only has one phone line. Is this the problem? Do these phones need a minimum of two lines?

    Dear Netpak

    I have a similar problem, what seems to have happened is that the STATION-ID of the phone has been Reset due to Low-Battery. But, even after changing the battery when I try to follow the manual instructions on setting up the Station-Id I am unable to do so.

    Pressing any button gives a 2-tone beep. I hope someone has a solution for this.

That isn't a whole lot to work with. Get a working phone and take the cord out of the base of the GE and plug it into the working phone.
If the working phone gets a dial tone, look into the modular receptical on the GE base and see if the contact wires aren't out of place.
If you don't get a dial tone on the working phone, try changing the connection cord between the phone and the wall. Also look for the same problem in the wall receptical as discribed above for the GE base.

SOURCE: When I get ready to dial, phone beeps 3 times

You must have an answering service from your phone company, and probably don't know about it. Try dialing your own # and wait for the prompts.

SOURCE: Has new battery, but no dial-tone,

Replacing the battery reset the phone to the factory defaults, which means you'll have to restore the connection to the base in Menu-Setup

SOURCE: GE 2-9450 CORDED PHONE PROBLEM

I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they didn't lose power. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the rec post inside the phone jack. Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension.
Good luck!

I cant get a dial tone to call out says line in use but I have checked and unplugged all 4 lines still no dial tone everything else is good no dial tone


Try:
Turn off power for the base.
Turn off phone and take out batteries.
Wait few seconds then put batteries back.
Will help if you unplug and plug the cables.

Hi,

Did you pay the Bill ?

this seems as if it,s incoming calls only. Check the line with an alternative Phone. This will verify the lines good. And eliminate that One.
Also check if theres A Tone/Pulse setting.
This can also have adverse effects.
If this is on an adaptor fitting with internet access, try removing the adaptor, and plugging the phone direct into the Socket.
Or try the phone on a seperate or diferent Socket.

Hope This helps.

Can get dial tone but cant dial out


If you haven't tried it yet, reverse the two incoming line wires. Some phones have to be a particular polarity. I have had a case where things were working, then a lineman somewhere reversed the connections at a pedestal someplace and my phone would not dial.

Ge telphone and answering machine


Are all phones on your line having this issue? Is it a GE system with expandable (multiple) phone handsets? Make sure you have touchtone service with your local phone company. If you are getting a dial tone but can't break dial tone when you press a button; do you hear the touch tone? If so, it may be the phone comany line. Provide as much detail as possible such as were the phomes working at first but then stopped or never worked at all.
