can only be two things.

You activated the MUTE button.

The Microphone is broken.

Disconnect it from the power outlet, remove the battery and count to 10, replace battery and plug back in.

After charging battery,the phone dial reads, out of range,or no pwr at base

Double check that the power cable is _fully_ plugged into the phone base, then check to see that power cable is fully plugged into wall outlet; and/or fully plugged into phone wall outlet. (Some base units have no power adapter and get their power from the phone outlet on the wall). In short, double check _all_ wired connections. Do not assume they are fully plugged in.

How do I install? I have the base plugged into service outlet and the adapter into electrical outlet. The phone reads "no line". I cant get the setup. Jerry Koenig

  1. Check is that your cables are plugged in firmly.
  2. Check is to make sure you have the filter installed correctly (as shown in the manual, make sure its not backwards).
  3. You need to confirm with your service provider that the line is actually active (some times it takes a while for the service provider to activate a line)
  4. Replace the cables and see if that works (the cables could be faulty).

If none of the above works then the easiest thing for you to do is call your service provider for assistance (they should have a technical support line).

Why does phone need dsl filter

Did the other phone quit working? If you have DSL there could be a splitter installed at you NID? (Network Interface Device) put there by the phone company, it could have gone bad. Do you have other phones in the house, and are they working or not. try another jack? you may just have a bad jack where you are.

I unplugged vtech tel to move to another location-now i have CL flashing and none of the phones have dial tone-how do i fix-thank you very much for your help

The main unit with the answering machine needs to be plugged into and outlet and also plugged into a working phone jack. The other units just plug into an outlet and speak to the main unit wirelessly. Make sure the main unit is plugged into a phone jack.

Panasonic phone handset display not working

Hi Nergeshb,

First try relocating the base unit for testing purposes, to ensure that the unit is plugged into a working telephone jack and that the adapter is plugged into a working electrical outlet. Verify that the in-use charge light is lit.

Additionally, there may be interference if the base unit is located near any appliances, or if it is plugged into an outlet with other devices. Try plugging the base unit into an outlet of its own.

If you are still experiencing a problem after these preliminary tests, you should reset the phone. To do this, remove the battery from the handset, and disconnect the adapter and phone line. Leave the unit disconnected for 1 minute. Put the battery back into the handset and then place the handset on the base unit. Reconnect the adapter and phone line. Then test the unit.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Please rate the this solution for your problem.

Own a GE 29870GE1 telephone with digital answering machine. The digital part works but can't get a dial tone.


Try unplugging the phone from the wall power outlet plug it back after like 3 minutes. Power on and see if you get a dial tone, if not, try reset the unit, once the unit is reset, the problem should be fix. Follow this steps to reset the unit,

Turn off the phone, remove the AC adapter, press and hold the page/call button that is on the phone and plug back your Ac adapter, this will fix the problem.

Take care.

I can't dial out from my handsets

Here is something to try:

Disconnect or unplug the power supply (the small black box that is plugged into the wall outlet) wait for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Sometimes the power supply needs to reset itself. It worked for me.
