Question about RCA MODEM CBL (PC3060)

1 Answer

I get a dial tone and can use the phone, but it doesn't ring.

My telephone line is hooked up to the modem (in the correct spot for 1-line service), but it was recently moved and re-connected to a different phone jack on the other end. Now the phone is working, but it doesn't ring.

    Your saying that you have dial tone but it doesn't ring, correct? If so, try dialing your cellphone to verify that the displayed phone number is, in fact, the expected number. If you move the phone back to the original jack does it definitely ring?

    have you ensured that the phone still rings, plug it in and call it to verify that it still rings.

Check to make sure your ringer is turned on on your phone. Did you try another phone?

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

I have two dell laptops that are having the same problem of no dial tone


First of all, be sure that the connection you have configured on the computers are Dial Up connections.

If you have restrictions activated on the telephone line, removing them might help. Some other services of your telephone provider can also prevent your modems to properly detect the dial tone. It might be worth to take a look in that direction.

It might also be a problem with the telephone line. Try also to dial the number normally entered in the dial-up connections. You should hear a ringing tone shortly followed by noises similar to a fax machine. If you hear this, you access correctly to your providers dial up server and the problem would be with the two computers.

No dial tone pressing hook, NG and Poor line condition transmission report on sending and receiving. Confirmed good dial tone on line in and on phone on ext. Copy, display, everything else fine. I hear...


Hello,

Make sure that you have your telephone line from the wall jack plugged into the port on the fax that says "LINE" and that your telephone is plugged into EXT.

All your cables and jacks seem like they are working since your phone gets a dial tone, the onyl thing could be that the wires are mixed or the modem on the fax is broken.

Thanks,

Pat

Lost dial tone and phone service


Your phone line might be connected to Telephone 1 not 2. That could be the reason why you are not getting a dial tone.

Trying to launch internet explorer.it gives me error 680.


680 - There is no dial tone.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
First, try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly (especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often, they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to be in the proper selection of the Country in Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
If the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers, this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone present on the line.
