Dialtone but no ring only beep

Sounds like its either going offline maybe checking the outlet and the cord that plugs into the base. It may also be the battery needs replacing,it has been run down and charged again too many may hold enough for a dial tone but not enuff to even ring,just beep I stead

The entry of the phone number dials, but it stops at the last number, it does not connect.

Is the phone actually connecting to the phone line? You can enter a number and tell it to dial, and the phone will, but if you never got a dialtone the call won't go anywhere. If you press the TALK button, do you hear a dialtone? If not, you'll need to check the base unit connection to the phone line. The cord may have come loose at one of the ends, or some problem has occurred on the phone line. Maybe another phone in the house isn't properly hung up.

If you do get dialtone, make sure you're dialing a complete number. Maybe one of the numbers isn't being entered, and the phone line is waiting for the rest of the numbers. This is actually unlikely, since if you are connected but don't place a call after some time, an error message comes from your service provider.

You can also try re-registering the handset. If it's not communicating properly with the base, this will usually get it going.

Then, if other handsets are working and this one doesn't, it's just an electronic failure of some kind in the handset. If it's still covered by a warranty, let Vtech fix or replace it. Otherwise you'll need to purchase a replacement or see what service options are available.

The samsung DCS compactdesk phonelost the line 1-line 4 functionality,now to get aqn outside line,you have to press 9 and it only gives dialtone to line one...

try bypassing all of that and using your trunk lines directly, so instead of dialing 9, dial 701, 702, etc (based on the lines you have), this is only a temporary solution and the phone needs to be reprogrammed

Hello, yesterday, I purchased an AT&T 3 Handset phone set with the model no. of EL52309 and I came home and read the directions that said the phones needed to be charged for at least 16 hours and so...

is the base in range of the other two bases, have you set each phone in the main base so they get aquainted., are you shure all plugins are snug? try a different telephone wire to hook up to the base from the wall (might be a bad wire) if that persists, try relocating the base, and test it their, if you are still without dialtone use a cell phone and call your tsp say it randomly stopped working and that you changed nothing... they will send someone out :P

Phone not working. I left it unpluged all night to reboot. Same proplen. No service in or out. Badse keeps flashing "Welcome Please wait"

Pls check if the intercom function works. If yes, then the base is simply waiting for the presence of a dialtone on the telephone line. It would be required to check your telephone wire connections. Further, if you have an extension telephone, pls verify that indeed you have dialtone along the same line. In most instances, you may need to contact your phone provider to verify service.

If no intercom function, it may simply need pairing again or redo the initial install setup.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Phone won't work

The lighting blew out your phone circuit in your base, it needs replacing or repair, but you may be hardpressed to find a base only in good working order and then you will have to get the handsets to work with it. Nevertheless, one option is to contact Uniden, but they do not repair, they will give you an option to replace your unit. Or you can send your unit (base and handset(s) ) to for a repair quote. Good Luck, CG
