SOURCE: buttons (numbers) don't work

try reversing the polarity in the phone jack.[ reversing the red & green wires] the phone company may have been doing some work in your area. but first check to see if the phone is set on touch tone when it may need to be on pulse.
good luck

SOURCE: Uniden cordless phone. No dial tone.

Hi peddler65, did you plug your phone into another area to see if there is a dial tone. Then if not call the phone company or find the D-mark (where your dial tone ) comes into your home and put a jack on that and plug a phone in with all phones in the house unplugged.

Thanks.

SOURCE: can not break through dial tone on either hand set

After going around and around and around with YOU people, I finally gave up and took the damned phone back to the store where I bought it. The first store wouldn't take it back, because I had the receipt (which was from early September, 2008 - which was past the 90 days), so I took it to their other location and told them that I lost the receipt. I got a brand new replacement. If the new one should fail to work, I'll take it back again WITHOUT the receipt, and upgrade to another brand. Thanks anyway.

How do I get my crosley wall phone to work on tone setting? it will only work on the pulse setting which is very slow.


The DTMF [Dual Tone Multi Frequency] tone dialing system operates on Direct Current [DC] and is DEPENDENT ON the PROPER POLARITY of the two phone conductor wires!!!!

IF the polarity is reversed, ONLY the PULSE DIALING WILL WORK!!!!!

USUALLY the Tip and Ring wires are colored Red and Green [I think -- it's been a lotta years!!!!!].

HOWEVER, color really doesn't matter as USUALLY ONLY TWO WIRES ARE CONNECTED TO THE PHONE SO REGARDLESS OF COLOR, JUST REVERSE those two wires.

Try reversing the two wires, and then switch the phone to tone dial and try it. That MAY solve the problem!

If that doesn't solve the problem then it's beyond me!!!!!

Good luck!!!!!

No dial tone on handset. can't send or recieve fax.


? Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP All-in-One,
might be causing the test to fail. To find out if other equipment is causing a
problem, disconnect everything from the phone line, and then run the test
again. If the Dial Tone Detection Test passes without the other equipment,
then one or more pieces of the equipment is causing problems; try adding
them back one at a time and rerunning the test each time, until you identify
which piece of equipment is causing the problem.
? Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP All-in-One and check for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check
the line.
? Make sure you have correctly connected the HP All-in-One to the telephone
wall jack. Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the HP All-in-One,
connect one end to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other end to
the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the HP All-in-One.

If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information, see The phone cord that came with my HP All-in-One is not long
enough.
Check the connection between the telephone wall jack and the HP All-in-One
to make sure the phone cord is secure.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.

If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.
If your telephone system is not using a standard dial tone, such as some
PBX systems, this might cause the test to fail. This will not cause a problem
sending or receiving faxes. Try sending or receiving a test fax.
Check to make sure the country/region setting is set appropriately for your
country/region. If the country/region setting is not set or is set incorrectly, the
test might fail and you might have problems sending and receiving faxes.
Make sure you connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line or you will
not be able to send or receive faxes. To check if your phone line is digital,
connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for
digital phones. Connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line and try
sending or receiving a fax.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
After you resolve any problems found, run the fax test again to make sure it
passes and the HP All-in-One is ready for faxing. If the Dial Tone Detection test
continues to fail, contact your telephone company and have them check the
phone line.

THE PHONE SAYS LINE IN USE


Check to see that you have dial tone from the phone company by using a standard non cordless phone. if you have dial tone then check the cordless phone and make sure you plug into the correct port and ensure that you have the power plugged into the wall. Also, use the same cord from the standard phone that is connected from the phone to the wall to ensure that your line cord is not bad.

GE portable phone model # 26928GE1-D No dial tone-installed new battery still no tone


That isn't a whole lot to work with. Get a working phone and take the cord out of the base of the GE and plug it into the working phone.
If the working phone gets a dial tone, look into the modular receptical on the GE base and see if the contact wires aren't out of place.
If you don't get a dial tone on the working phone, try changing the connection cord between the phone and the wall. Also look for the same problem in the wall receptical as discribed above for the GE base.

Dial Tone Appears and Disappears


Any store offering phones will have replacement cables for low prices; replace this first. Your wall jack could also be damaged although the ones used by installers is generally very long-lived.

Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does have a dial tone


I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?

Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck.
Mac =)
