2 tone dial tone

I can make and receive calls, however my dial tone is a 2 tone sound. My old phone had a single tone before it packed up. I'm on a Virgin Media package and have had to use the suppled Philips SE255 adptor into the phone socket to allow me to make/receive calls as my old small to large phone connector no longer works.

I had the same problem and my hubby managed to reset the phone by simply unplugging it from the electical network. Just wait for few minutes (the date goes back to 1 Jan 2005), then plug it again and try to dial a number. It should work.

SOURCE: DECT 225 - Ring tone etc. no longer works on 1 phone

Use your screw driver, open the handset, maybe the speaker wire is broken. Or use multimeter to check the dc resistance of speaker. Generally ,it is 8ohm or 4 ohm.

I have a Serene CL-60AP phone. It receives calls but I can't get it to dial out. I hear it dialing like an old rotary phone but then the dial tone comes back.


You need to change the dialing mode to tone rather than pulse.

If you would like to know how to do this refer to page 26 of the instruction manual
50. DIALING MODE SETTING (TONE OR PULSE)
page 15 on the pdf file below
http://hearinglosshelp.com/store/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2015/02/CL60Ausermanual.pdf

Depends on what your telephone exchange accepts as a dialing signal. Strange thing is phone is factory set to tone but it seems to sound like your phone is on pulse.

The visual ringer will not flashing.


At an educated guess sounds like dial tone is set to decadic if there are two phones the other phone will set off ringer when numbers dialed. May need to get phone provider to change dial mode in exchange line interface circuit to be Dual tone Multi Frequency Dialing and then switch phones to Tone dialing rather than pulse dialing.

No dial tone cant make calls


No dial tone and inability to receive ring signals are symptoms of connection problems. The installation instructions should indicate how your telephone system should be connected to the network.

Fax wont' go through. Plugged phone jack into phone line and when I try to fax it doesn't connect. Any suggestions? Thanks


Can you receive any faxes. Run a Fax Test from the Tools menu. Is the problem with only one fax receipient? (Check the phone number and make sure they are set to receive. I have dealt with one fax receipient where the call-waiting service caught the fax call.)

Does the Fax see a dial tone? If there is no dial tone, use a single line phone (corded) to listen for a dial tone at that jack. If there is no dial tone, check the incoming service for a dial tone. (If you have no dial tone at all, contact your service provider.) Try a new phone cable (2-wire RJ-11) Try calling the number from another phone line with the single line phone attached. If the phone doesn't ring with a new cable, check your wiring and then contact your provider. Is the signal analog or digital (the all-in-one is designed for digital)?

Go back through the fax settings and set it as directed in Step 2 here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01458259&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3643612 . You need the fax error reporting setting.

Disconnect any items that are plugged into the 2-Ext port.

Try reinitializing the unit. Unplug the power cord with the unit on. Make sure that the phone cord is fully seated in the 1-Line port. Then reconnect the power cord.

Try resetting the all-in-one, this may require 2 people. With the printer on, unplug the power cord and wait at least 20 seconds. Press and hold # and 3 while plugging in the power cord. Release the buttons after the unit starts up.

If none of these steps help the unit may need service.

I need to retrieve my home phone messages from cell phone


Activating Call Forwarding

You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press *7 2.
In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.


4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.


5. Hang up the receiver.

Deactivating Call Forwarding

Turn Call Forwarding off when you want to receive calls on your home phone.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press * 73.
In some areas you must use 73#
Dial 1173 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. Listen for two short tones.
Call Forwarding is now off and you will receive your calls at your home number.

Faxing problem


1) Plug a single line wired (not cordless) phone in to the exact same phone jack as the fax machine and dial one of the fax numbers you are trying to dial out to using the exact same digits. Does the call complete Y/N? do you hear a fax tone Y/N?
>>>>If either answer is "No" you have an invalid phone number. If both answers are "Yes" proceed to step 2.

2) When you off hook do you hear a "stutter" dial tone? Y/N?
>>>>>"Yes" This is your phone company telling you that you have unlistened voicemail messages in your mailbox. Dial in to your voice mail and clear your messages. "No" go to step 3.

3) 2 part question: Do you have call waiting and is your fax machine trying to disable call waiting when dialing out?
>>>>>In many areas *70 (star-seven-zero) will disable call waiting for a single phone call. If you try to disable call waiting when call waiting is not on the line, the call will not complete. This may come in to play in a speed dial situation.
+++Other things to consider+++
*Is outgoing long distance blocked on the line?
*Is outgoing regional intralata (same area code) long distance blocked?
*Is local calling blocked?
*Is a speed dial misprogrammed? Forgot to dial "1" Dialed "1" in error?
*Is there a wiring problem? >>>Try moving fax machine to a different phone jack.

There may be no magic answer for your problem, I hope one of these suggestions helps.
