Lets do a quick test. Get a corded phone not cordless and insert into the jack. Can you make a successful call? If so your cordless phone is defective.

Panasonic KX-TG2722 no dial tone


"No dial tone" certainly needs a bit more information. Technology requires doing the most simple aspects first then on to the complex. For starters, did you try a different phone line? Is the phone service turned on? Is the unit plugged into the wall and fully charged? More info required for your request.

I forget my security code my cell samsung B3410


try dialing *228 SEND. then the code might be reset to the last four digits of your phone number. If the phone is locked and wont let you dial, you will have to take it to the cell phone provider and ask if they can reprogram your number in the phone. then it should be the last four of your cell number. If that doesn't work or is not an option, a tech will have to flash the phone. (That will erase everything though)

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.

My phones say "phone in use", but they are not. Cannot receive calls or dial out.


Whenever I see this issue, I grab an old corded phone as a test phone. The line in use message could be a problem with the phone line or the phone. First make sure that the base has power and try a new phone data cord (RJ-11). Next plug in a test phone to that jack and see if you get a dial tone (preferably with the new data cord).

If you do not get a normal dial tone, try another jack on the line. If you still do not have a dial tone, find where the phone service comes in and open the box. If you have a new service, you'll find an RJ-11 jack in the box. In that case, plug your test phone into the jack. If there is no dial tone or you can't test at the service box, contact your phone company. They will test the line and fix any outside problem.

If it is an inside problem, inspect all visible wiring and open the wall plate if only one jack is bad. There are two standard types of wall plate connections. For one, you strip the conductors and secure them under a screw. For the other, you use a punch down tool to press the conductors (without stripping them) into the right spot in the keystone jack. This tool is available at many home improvement stores in the wiring section. See http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx for a picture of the correct wiring.

If the problem is with your phone only, try to reset it. Take the batteries out of the handsets and unplug the power cord from the base and the wall outlet. Wait a few minutes and then plug everything back in. Make sure that the power brick is warm (getting power) and that the handset batteries are fully charged.

If the reset doesn't help, you should contact the manufacturer. If the phone is under warranty have them repair it. (If it is out of warranty, decide if it is worth fixing.) Most of these phones are not meant to be repaired by the consumer.

I hope this helps.

No dial tone


  • First, try to check every telephone line is properly plugged into its phone jack. If you have a problem with just one phone, plug a different phone into that jack. If the second phone works, the problem lies in the first phone.
  • Then unplug each phone and answering machine in your house, one at a time. Wait 30 seconds after unplugging the first device. Pick up another phone to see if there's a dial tone -- if there is, then the first phone may be faulty. If not, continue unplugging phones in the same way and check for dial tone. If you find a phone that doesn't work, plug all your other phones back in and see if they work properly. The faulty phone should be replaced.
  • or disconnect the plug from the test jack inside the exterior box. This disconnects your inside wiring from phone company's line. If you have more than one line, select the test jack for the line that is causing the problem. Plug your phone into the jack; this plugs you directly into the phone company's line. If you have a cable modem, plug the phone directly into the jack on the modem.
  • Then pick up the phone receiver to see if there's a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, the problem is with your outside wiring. If there is a dial tone, the trouble is caused by your inside wiring, equipment or jacks.
  • Hope it will help you. Thanks for using FixYa.

    My DECT6.0 telephone will not give me a dial tone nor answer any calls neither will the additional handset..Although my verizon direct line functions as it designed


    Hello.

    Here are some tips, found online:

    Reset the phone:

    Unplug the battery in the handset, unplug the phone line from the base and unplug the electricity from the base. Leave everything unplugged for an hour or two instead of a couple to five minutes that way you can get more of an idea of whether your phone will work. After an hour or two plug in everything. If resetting the phone doesn't work then try the next step.

    Check the surge protector:

    Is the phone line plugged into a surge protector? The surge protector may have stopped working or blown a surge, a sudden burst of electricity, which may have caused the dial tone in your cordless phone to go. Unplug the phone line from the surge protector then plug it back in and see if you get a dial tone. It could be that the phone line plugged into the surge was loose or not plugged in securely.

    Try a different phone plug, outlet.

    Check the base:

    Is the base dusty and have possible dirt in the prongs where the phone sits? Lift the base and blow off dust.

    Check the handset for dirt.


    Rub metal connections on handset and base:

    Use a pen cap or coin and rub the metal connections on the bottom of the handset. Rub the prongs, metal connections on base.

    Hope these suggestions help.

    Handset doesn't have dial tone. says check TEL line.


    For this type of problem, you need to isolate the issue. It could be the phone, the inside wiring, or the outside wiring. I like to use an old rotary phone for testing but any basic corded phone should work. Get a new RJ-11 phone cable as well.

    Unplug the base unit and plug in the test phone to that jack. Check if you get a dial tone. (Try a new cable if the initial one doesn't work.) If your test phone has a dial tone, then the problem is isolated to the cordless phone. (If the test phone works with the new cable, do check if Uniden works with that cable.) Modern phones are not designed to be fixed by the consumer. If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden Customer Service. (Otherwise decide if the costs are worthwhile for you; there will be a significant delay before the phone is returned/replaced.)

    If you do not get the dial tone, you need to track down the wiring issue. Next move to another jack on the phone line and check if there is a dial tone on your test phone. If there is a dial tone, you have isolated the problem to the jack or the wiring to the jack.

    If there is still no dial tone, find where your telephone service comes in to your building. If you can, open the box. Determine the type of connection used there. If you are lucky, you will find a RJ-11 jack for your phone line. Plug in your test phone and check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, contact your telephone provider. They will fix this outside problem for free.

    If the connection is not a RJ-11 jack, you will need to call the telephone company so that they can determine if the problem is inside or outside.

    If you do have a dial tone, then the problem is with the inside wiring. Inspect the visible wires for damage. Open the faceplates for the jacks and check for loose wires. There are two types of connectors. Screw type connectors need the wire stripped back a little then wrap around the screw and tighten. The other type is a punchdown jack. To repair a loose wire in this, you will need a punchdown tool. These are often available in hardware/home improvement stores in the wiring section. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has clear pictures of the wire color to pin pattern.

    You may want a professional to check the wires inside the walls. Your telephone provider will do this for a fee.

    I hope this helps.
