I can make calls but phone doe not ring


You said "it seems to ring once then stops." One possible cause of what you're describing is called a "Ring Trip." It is characterized when the button that flashes to indicate an incoming call changes to steady red (which would normally indicate the call is answered) although no one actually answered the call. If that occurs, then you have to test to see whether you can tell where the problem is coming from. If you unplug all the phones, you can then call in (from a cell phone or other phone that's not part of the system) and see if the incoming call rings unanswered, as it should when no phones are attached. If all rings in OK, plug just one phone in at a time and call in to see if any particular phone causes the problem. If one causes the ring trip, then disconnect that broken phone. If ringing still stops when no phones are attached, you'll have to disconnect the phones' connection wires (Station Wires) at the phone system box that plug into the "Station Ports" (label them before you unplug any!). Do not unplug the plugs for the wires that feed phone company lines into the phone system, the jacks are called CO line ports. With the "Station" wires unplugged, see if If all rings in OK by calling in from a cell phone or other phone that's not part of the system. If all rings in OK, plug just one station wire in at a time to see if one causes the problem. If one station wire causes the ring trip, then disconnect that troublesome wire and inspect its "system box jack" and its phone jack for water damage, carpet cleaning solvent, exterminator spray or any other corrosive liquid damage. Sometimes a staple through a wire where there's humidity can cause the problem. This process will find the offending wire, jack or phone that causes a "Ring Trip." There are many other possibilities, but the extremely limited description you've provided "it seems to ring once then stops." doesn't help me send you a better answer yet.

NorStar M7208 - How to remove global ringing?


This is tech side of programming and not Admin, if you don't know config password or how to program then call a tech.
If you do know then:
First find out what line #, do F*0 then press the button and note the full number on the display.
i.e. Line 5 in programming is Line 005, 025 or 031 depending on software version.

Uniden Dect1560 - For incoming calls it only rings 3 times. Is there a way to make it ring 6 times before it goes to voice mail?


Your model is a phone only, without an answering machine built in. This means that voicemail is provided by your phone service on your line, and that's where you need to adjust the rings before it picks up. The phone itself has nothing to do with it.

You may have to call your service provider for setup instructions because not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. Pick up your phone and call your own number to reach your voicemail. When your message starts, press the * button and the system will ask for your pass code (just like when you call to get your messages). Follow the voice prompts to reach the main menu, then mailbox settings, where you'll be able to change the ring count.

If these steps don't work for you, ask your service provider what you need to do.

One phone handset will not answer incoming calls. You can call out on that handset, but it will not answer incoming calls.


It needs to be put in the ICD group. By default, nobody is in ICD group 1. Adding the phone and giving a ring status to it, even if it's no ring, makes the light blink on incoming calls. If you have access to system programming it's program 622 and 623. If you don't, your dealer/installer will have to do it.

Panasonic kx dt 333 When the phone rings the red light doesn't flash to denote which line it's coming in on. Any idea how to resolve this?


Which means what? You have a solid red light on the line or you don't have the line at all. A TDA system rings by a process called ICD groups. You can have a phone in an ICD (600 by default) and tell it the number of rings to delay, not ring, or immediate ring, but that means that the line button will flash as the call is coming in. If you don't assign it to a group, it's really stupid and won't do anything but light solid red.

If you have access to installer programming, you assign the extension to the main ICD. If you don't you have to call your Panasonic installer or dealer.

GE DECT 6.0 28851FE2-A. phone will dial out, but wont ring in or show any caller id. has an icon in the display of a phone with an arrow pointing at the mouth piece. weve checked the ring vol, ring...


This phone has a feature for hearing impared called "visual ringer" that you can wirelessly connect to something to "show" the phone is ringing.

I don't have a manual to check how to turn that feature on/off but please check if that is on.

it is just a guess so please rate me accordingly.

Phone won't ring with incoming calls


I just bought a new Uniden DECT 6.0 phone and had a similar problem. It wouldn't ring when plugged into my Linksys voip router, but my old 5.8 GHz did ring. It would get a dialtone and make calls, but when called via an outside line, it would appear as if it was ringing. If I picked up during this "silent ring," it would answer and take the call. It wasn't a ringer volume issue. I called tech support, they said on the main headset, unplug the battery, then unplug power from the base, then unplug the phone cord from the base. Wait 15-30s. Plug the phone cord, then power, then reinstall the battery. Press the End button on the phone. Put the phone on the base for 15-30s. Pick up the phone. Press and hold the Find button on the base. Do this Find thing 3 times. Put the phone back on the base. Wait 10-15 minutes. Then try calling it to see if it rings. Worked for me, finally got it to ring before I decided to return it.

Can't anwer the phone with just picking up handset


You need to call your vendor out to program the phone. Something is missing in programming to allow you to just pick up the handset.
