    Hello. Thanks for your help so far. I have tried the suggestions you made, but the fault is still there. The handset appears to work OK - for example for an incoming skype call. I can also call out from my contacts list. But the problem occurs when I want to make an ordinary call out. When I press the green button, up comes the "Call in Progress" message and the busy tone sounds.

    Hello Again,
    Thanks for your suggestions - the problem is still there when I change the Privacy settings to 'anyone'. But I do not understand what you mean by 'VM setting'. Please explain what this is - I have searched the User manual!! Once you have explained this, I'll change it too, and try again.

Hi jcol2

First, check to see if you have the latest version of skype.

but try this.

First check privacy settings are set to anyone, see what happens.
Then, try changing both privacy settings and VM settings to anything, exit out of the program and try running skype again in a few minutes.

let me know what happens.

If this is sharing landlines with an house phone, try unplugging the pother phone.

Test the phone on a different socket.

Try removing batteries(if and unplugging adapter to reset the skype phone.

Try removing broadband filter. If it was the broadband filter , then replace it.

If you are using a phone extension, test without extension.

If the above still did not fix the problem, get the phone replaced, there should be a phone number listed on phone documentation that you can call when the phone is faulty.

    It is important that you alreadi tried removing handset battery.

    If that did not work try a firmware update:

    try a firmware update from the phones advanced features.

    Press top left arrow key
    Select settings
    Select advanced
    Select firmware update
    Select current firmware - if not ver 233 11.19.2007, rel 6 then do an update

    If still no luck , then a bad phone line in your house can allow the skype phone use, but not the landlines, check this out with phone company, after calling the support number listed on dualphone documentation.

The microphone of my dualphone 3088 is working properly with the land line but not at all with skype.

You have to change te properties of microfone and speaker in the Skype to the phone.
Go to tools->options, enter audio settings and define your phone for mic and speaker.

Dualphone 3088 is completely black. \r\nchanged

The Dualphone 3088 LCD screen has a terrible habit of coming loose from the ribbon connector socket on the main board. If you take the phone apart, carefully remove the LCD screen from the plastic surround it is in and you will see the ribbon and its board connector. The small clipson either side of the connector have a habit of coming loose, freeing the LCD screen. Carefully put the ribbon cable from the LCD screen back into the connector, you will need to press both clips on the connector at the same time to lock it in place. (yes its fiddly and I have to do it all the damn time)

I had excatly the same problems and therefore I called the Dualphone hotline. A very helpful person send me this code, which I used and after 2 days with many frustrations this solved all problems within 30 minutes:

"Dear Sir, madam,

Thank you for contacting dual phone Support.

"Press menu followed by 1 – 3 – 9 – 7 – 5. You will prompt to one pageFWU configuration and select Beta firmware. Install the 0247 beta firmware."

Best regards,

Dualphone support"

Hope it can someone
