Question about Uniden TRU9496 Corded / Cordless Phone

Open Question

Line #1 no dial tone on base unit, incoming calls go right to voice mail

Model #TRU9496, base unit and (4)cordless phones. No dial tone on base unit Line #1. Readout on base unit and invididual phones say "Line#1 in use". Can't call out on Line #1 on base unit but can call out on individual phones. Calls coming in go right to voice mail. Line #2 has dial tone on both base unit and individual phones but still all incoming calls go to voice mail. I hope this makes sense. Taffy

SOURCE: Uniden TCX805 Cordless "loses" dial tone

Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.

SOURCE: no dial tone no incoming calls or outgoing calls

Have You Tried Replacing The Cable Connecting the Base To the Wall Jack? If Not Do That...
If that doesnt work there should be a channel button on the handset try that...If that doesnt work i would say the handset itself is bad.

SOURCE: Can't make outgoing calls

Hi, have you checked from your service provider that you have an outgoing service? Any number of problems could cause you to lose outgoing dialling, and some of these causes are outside of your control. In my opinion, I would first try a different phone; plug that into your line and see wether you have the same problem. If you do, I would first check your immediate surroundings to make sure that nobody has tampered with your line. Secondly, get your Telco to do a line test; they may charge a smal fee for this, but this depends on region and of course your provider. Might also be advantage too check any other connections and microfilters if you have those. If you have a broadband line, then consider unplugging your computer and router from the phone line and do the test by the main socket with just one phone. More sockets? check these one by one. This is the best way, and the most secure, may save you a lot of time and aggro in the future, and lets face it. If it is the handset, they are cheap enough to replace, but test your line first because this is more expensive and time consuming.

I hope this is the fixya for you, and best wishes in resolving this issue.

yours sincerely

SOURCE: No dial tone on Uniden Dect 6.0 land line and portable phone

We've had the same problem with our new Uniden phone. Sounds like someone's on the other line - no dial tone and answering machine doesn't work. The telephone line works though because we plugged our old phone in and it works fine. Any solutions anyone?

Phone not working


Hi Pam,
Try these..1...remove your telephone line from base unit and fix it into a working land phone and check whether is it having normal dial tone.If it's having engage tone(beep beep...)remove paralleled phones and re connect to cordless base unit.
2.If line is ok (normal dial tone with full volume) & still display indicates line is busy, your main base unit must be having faulty components inside.Commonly these defects happen in thundering or surges through telephone lines.You have to take full set to a repair shop.
Rana.

My phone doesn't have dial tone. Each time I dial a number and try to call,it wont work. I call my phone but it wont ring. I need help on this. What happen to the phone? Or what should I do?


If you have another phone connect it to the wall outlet to see if you get a dial tone. This will indicate if your base unit is faulty.
Check the power adapter to the base unit, make sure it is getting mains power.
If the base unit has dual phone lines and if line 1 is only connected and the line 2 has beed selected then you cannot get a dial tone. In the chase press the line 1 to get a dial tone.
If your base unit has only one line then check the phone line at the wall socket make sure it is plugged in tight, also check the the connection at the base unit.
If this does not work then ring the phone company and get the to test your phone line, you may have a faulty line to your home.

The damage is not to the phone line it is to the phones. Unfortunately this is very common with powered phones as they are almost never kept on surge protectors and are very fragile. You will need to purchase a new base station to use with existing phones.

No dial tone phone jack tested ok phone rings incoming call when you pic up nobody. changed battery still no dial tone or conection on incoming call


This is caused by a failed wireless signal transmitter in the base station or a failed wireless receiver in the handset, these phones are not repaired unless they are under warranty, so all you can do is replace it, this is the #1 PROBLEM WITH ALL CORDLESS PHONES.

Dial tone is OK, but can't dial out
• Make sure the tone/pulse setting is programmed
correctly.
TONE/PULSE DIALING
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode).
2. Use the CID/VOL left (-) or right (+) arrow button to
scroll to 1TONE or 2PULSE, or use the touch tone
pad on the handset to enter the desired setting. For
example, to choose TONE dialing, press the number 1
key. 1TONE is the default setting.
3. Press flash/program to store selection. You will hear a
confirmation tone.

If you have tried the phone base unit in the same jack that works correctly with your answering machine and you still cannot break dial tone, then you have a defective base unit. Jer
