EL52500 Phone base & 4 handsets have static, message Line in Use. Bought new phone, charged, connected - it says no line. Have dial tone at phone line into house.


Sounds like your phone has a short. If you see the message "line in use" call your number, is it busy, now unplug your phone and call your number again, is it ringing? Indicates a short, possibly in your equipment. As for message " no line" is the electric connected to the phone and did you check for dial tone in tat particular jack with a known, working phone first...just to make sure there's dt @ the jack. Good Luck :)

3Com 3102 phone dial tone but won't dial out


As long as someone hasn't been poking around in the phone system, this is a phone company issue. I have seen this many times and it has always been a carrier issue. Typically with PRI's or integrated access analog lines.

We have a telephone handset and base the Gigaset A265 which is not ringing in the house but going straight to our message system on our computer via our internet provider orange. We can call out but are...


Hello.

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.

No dail tone --but phone line is connected


Hello.

If the dial tone is not heard check the volume. It may have accidentally been muted or turned down.

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.

Try a different phone plug, outlet.

If the other phones on that line work OK, disconnect all the phones connected to the line, leave them all disconnected for 3 minutes, and then connect one at a time.

If still a problem and the other phones on that line work OK, give this a try:

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. That way you can get more of an idea of whether your phone will work. After an hour or two, plug in everything.

Hope this helps.

I can hear, but not talk, on my ATS RA2184BB cordless phone.


Have you tried unplugging your base station and all the handsets?

Sometimes the base station, where the power and the telephone line plugs into needs a reset. Just like a computer sometimes it needs a reboot.

If problem presists, take a regular analog phone and plug it in to the same jack as the cordless phone bas station, and see if it is a cable issue/ telephone company issue.

Error Message


Try plugging a phone, with a different cord, to the wall outlet the B640 is using. Do you hear a dial tone? If you do, replace the existing phone cord going to your B640. Now press the "hook" button on your B640. Do you hear a dial tone? If you answered yes, what messages are you seeing displayed now? Once I know your answer, we can take it from there.
