Heavy Static on phones. Can't hear caller. No caller ID

We have had this phone for about a year now, and out of nowhere now there is a very loud static on the phones.  It makes it impossible to hear anything when receiving a phone call and for some reason, we can't make an outgoing call now either.   Also noticed that the phone says "Room Monitor" on the display now. Heavy background noise while placing/receiving call.Tried changing battery.Will changing the base Adaptor solve this issue?

Room monitoring mode is basically a type of Intercom.


Press the *TONE/exit button on the handset to exit room monitor mode.

I will provide you with link to the user manual of the phone. Have a check at it. Might be useful.

The "room monitor" refers to the base phone listening to the remote handset. You may want to try to make sure the monitor switch is turned off. It may just take the static out ... not sure, but sounds like that's the issue..

Vtech model 2656 caller id is not working. How can I fix this?


Hello,

Found this on the VTECH support site regarding your model:

Tip 1 of 1
spacer.gif
Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information.

In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both you and your caller’s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems.

If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause caller ID disruption, static, noise and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.

In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.

Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller’s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received.

In addition if you would like to contact them or get more info on your phone, then use this link:
