Terrible static on land phone

Kitchen phone terrible static. Other phones in the house are perfect. Replaced this phone 4 times....still static. Verizon was here 4 times and they cannot pinpoint the problem. One technician says when the squirrels outside run on the phone wires, I get static. that sounds crazy. Hope you can help. Thank you.

If the one phone is the problem, then is has to do with the wiring connection for that station. Check the wiring at the phone by wiggling the wires while on a call. If you don't want to annoy anyone, Call an 800 number that has a large menu they play.If you have a modular jack at this phone, you would want to try another jack. Try the wiggle test first. It's also possible that the other end of the cable has a bad connection, or the cable itself has been damaged and has a broken wire anywhere on the length of the cable. If you know where the wire feeds from, that would be a big step in checking the other end. If you have no clue, a technician would have to visit your home to inspect the wiring and see if he/she can find it. Another option is to feed a new cable run to that phone. Squirrels can definitely affect wiring to homes, but that affects all the phones, not just one.
Hope that helps!
Good luck and God bless!

There is terrible static on all lines and the phone company states that it is our phone system. We have the Northstar Meridian M7324.


It sounds like a reboot of your system may be in order, When ever you have a system wide problem of this scope the main box on your wall is having trouble. power it down and power back up, this should fix it.

Incoming calls on home phone ring 1 time and then extreme static


When you unplug everything connected to the phone jack what happens? If it works, you have too many ringers or a short on the line. If it still trips the ring, you have a defective box.

Static interference on Uniden 5.8Ghz phone


i have a uniden 5.8 ghz cordeless and thought it was a piece of junk as well. I had static or lapse of audio near the router, the kitchen sink, the microwave (even when off) and in the doorway. I switched the frequency on the router and changed the channels on the phones all with no luck. Short of steering clear of my entire downstairs nothing worked.

Just about ready to buy a new phone and hit up google. Saw a posting that said to keep the base away from even the tv. . .hmmm this is exactly where mine was located. So I swapped the digital answering machine base and moved it downstairs and put the additional base near my flat screen. Guess what? Problem SOLVED! I still cannot believe it.

Hope this helps

Constant static and interference


VTech products are generally poorly designed and manufactured. You can probably notice the FCC Warnings on the device that say that you must accept all interference that you may recieve while in use. Go out, splurge a little, and find a telephone made by a well known company like Panasonic, Sony, etc.

Our 5.8gh uniden phones all have static one land phone 3 extension.


disconnect the ac adapter from the base - before you plug the phone back in with power - press and hold down the menu button (center silver button under the led display) and the number "1" and then plug it back in - keep holding those two buttons until the date and time reappears - it worked for me and it didnt erase the phone numbers stored in the base unit.

Sounds terrible.


Be sure when you are on that phone, that you are within range, and away from any electrical interference, particularly microwaves.

Background static


1. How old are you phone lines in the house?  Check the "main" terminal connections.  Clean and reconnect.  (Make note how the wires are connected).

2. The power transformers for the phones maybe you trouble also. Unplug all except the main unit.   Check each transfer one at a time. Do you have static?  One or more may be your problem.  Replace the bad ones if needed.
