Sometimes my corded phone screeches when I am using it. It happens if I move my hand over it and will quit when i move my hand from it.

    Why does it go for a long time without doing it and then does it a lot only to quit again.

    How come growing up with the corded phones never did this?

    Thanks,

What you hear is called acoustic feedback, the same thing when you get close to loudspeaker with mic. It is normal. The sound from headphone bounces of you hand where is picked up by mic, amplified and emitted back by headphone. A pitch would depend on how far is your hand from the receiver.

    old phones did not have an amplifier inside. Appearance of the feedback really depends on sound waves from headphone reaching microphone. Shape of the receivers can help this too. If you can control loudness, turn it down bit, it'll stop

Handset on Telstra T Hub saying "Out of range" when not.


You may have a bad RJ11 cord. Out of range simply means you are not getting a signal from your service provider or the base unit is not sending a wireless signal. It happens quite frequently when using VOIP or cable-based phone service.

Have your phone service run a test on your line to make sure it is getting to the main station thru your phone modem. It may need to be reset and they can do that remotely.

Hope this helps.

You might check on eBay since this system may not be still in production.

I keep a corded phone on hand to verify whether our landline company is even alive- but we are very rural and are forced to use Frontier which is hardly what is known as 'reliable.'

Mitel Superset 420 corded phone has static


Static on the handset of a MITEL phone is indicative of either a defective handset cord **OR** the user has one of those cord detangler devices attached to the cord. If it's a cord detangler, remove it, smash it with a hammer and throw it away. Advise the end-user to please not use these as they all become staticky after several weeks use. If the user has problems with their handset cord constantly becoming tangled, THAT PROBLEM is indicative of neck or ear fatigue from frequent LONG CALLS and the user keeps moving the handset from one ear to another (changing hands). THE FIX FOR THIS is to give the user either a corded or cordless headset (or check SMDR records for excessive personal calls)

I have a panasonic phone set tg1103. I used it in a previous house and now cannot get it to work in my new home. How do i reset it to find my phone line. Do i need to set it to factory settings and if...


You should not have to do anything to make the base find the phone line as long as it's plugged into a working phone jack and the AC power is on.

Have you tested the phone jack where you are connecting the base to be sure it's working? You can check with a simple, basic corded type phone. (You should have one of these on hand anyway, in case your power goes out. Without AC power, cordless phones won't work since their base unit would be off. The basic corded phone gets its power from the phone line so it will keep going. It's a good thing to have.) Plug the phone in and see if you have dialtone at the jack. You don't know what kind of phones the former residents had and how their jacks were wired. The one you're using may have been set up on a second line, for example.

If you don't find dialtone at the jack, you can try others and move the base unit as necessary, or see about having the wiring corrected. The model number of your phone is a UK version, and I don't know the rules regarding who can do telephone wiring there. Here in the US you can do the work yourself, hire a contractor, or contact the telephone service provider.

If you find the jack is working, something may have happened to the cordless base unit during the move. Try another cord; maybe the one you're using was damaged. Then your remaining option is to see about servicing or replacing the phone if it's still not working.

THE PHONE LINES ARE ARE MAKING A CRACKLING SOUND, WHICH SOMETIMES MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO HEAR WHAT IS BEING SAID


Crackling and buzz can come from a few different sources. I need a few more details. Is it on all phones? Is it on all lines of all phones? Does your caller hear the crackling too?

If it's in just one phone then switch out the handset & cord to see if the problem stays with the phone or the handset. You may just need a new hand set cord.

If it's in more than one phone then the problem will need some more testing.

When we put someone on speaker phone, we can hear them...but they can't hear us. help!!


I would say 90% of the time you just have to hit "Feature 1" to toggle the Microphone on and off. Look on the bottom right hand side of the phone while you do this. You will see the red LED go on and off. Sometimes you may need to do this operation twice.

There is a program that does control the capability of speaker phone. If it is not enabled then you will not be able to use this hands free feature.

Static


When I have a static problem with a phone or radio it usually happens when I have them plugged into a extension cord. Or they are too close to one another. You may try an ext.cord. just having the phone plugged in or find out why you have so many magnetic fields in your house and if moving the phone around to different outlets help.If not I suggest you call Radio Shack. You can not beat their customer service.
