If you have a dial tone at the closest jack and it doesnot go on through the house check to see if the red or green wire has been pulled loose or is broken at that jack or the next one. What happens when some one calls you? if they get a busy then there is a short where the red and green are touching each other. This sometimes happens only when a phone is plugged into the jack, in that case you can replace the jack. If the phone sounds like it is ringing to the caller and you do not hear the ring signal then you have a wire loose or broken( usually in a jack.) check each one and sometimes you need to pull on the wires the outer coating might hide the broken wire, Sometimes it might be just a loose screw in the jack.

Don't see my phone line once someon else picks up a lilne on My Panasonic KX T7433

Start by pressing PROGRAM 99 on the phone and press the line buttons one a t a time. It will tell you what CO(central office) line is assigned to the button.
They should be in sequence 1,2,3,4 etc. If they don't, dial 0 + 0x STORE to program it and make it work.

Line no 4 is always showing co in use

When you press PROGRAM and CO4, what does the display say? A Panasonic TA series system starts with 3 lines. If you're trying to access line 4 and you don't have it, you might get that display, or line 4's button may be assigned to something else. Last, try unplugging the phone system cabinet and plugging it back in. That will reset all calls.

On the cross connect do you have a CO connected to that line. That is most likely the cause of no dial tone. If you don not know how to check that call a phone system expert to connect and verify your system.
