Re: Strong static when I'm on the phone
Try changing channels to find one with better reception. If you can't find a clear channel, try plugging a corded phone into the same jack and see if you get better reception. If you are getting static on your corded phones too, call the phone company to have them check the lines. Don't forget that fluorescent lights, vacuum cleaners, and other electric devices with an electromagnet (light ballast, electric motors, etc...) will create interference.

I had the same problem and we found out my under ground phone line had been struck with lightning and the phone company replaced it. Works fine now. If you have other phones besides these two and they work it could be as simple as replacing the phone line that goes to these two phones.
There are a few possibilities that could be the cause. The fact that its only one unit malfunctioning most likely means it is some type of fault in the unit it self and not the connection. Have you swapped it with another unit to make sure its the unit itself? If so try these. The first and most simple is the easiest to fix. It may sound odd but dirt and other contaminants can cause a great deal of interference "static" when they get worked into the metal connectors that carry signals. If that is the case, I recommend that you unplug the device and use "electronics" contact cleaner on all the connectors and if possible the metal contacts themselves. If it is not a containment then it could be a loose connector blown speaker/mic or even a solder joint inside the device. If that is the case you may have to have it repaired. Hope this helps.
Your having what is called "line loss". The telephone signal is not strong enough to power multiple units. You should use the hold feature, or turn your volume up, or use the conference feature, but the best solution is to put it on hold if you can.
I am having the same problem with the same model phone! The line works with another phone but not with the GE cordless. If I call someone with the GE cordless they can hear it ring and hear me talking but I cannot hear them speaking.
