SOURCE: "Line on Conference" hand set inoperable

Remove the batteries from the base and unplug the power for a few seconds. It should fix the problem.

SOURCE: no dial tone and "line in use " message

Try the simple things first. Try a different phone. In my case, I had the phone company check - outside was fine. After two hours my phone worked. I figured out what happened in my case. Both phones were dead (battery). I think one died with the phone off the hook. once the phones were fully charged, the phone worked.

My motorola Model K704B is saying "no line in what can I do to fix it


The "No Line" message means that the base of the cordless phone either doesn't have power, the line is damaged or that the handset/base are not communicating properly. To diagnose the problem, first check that the base AC cord is connected to a good outlet. You may want to unplug the cord from both the phone and the wall outlet and then plug it in again. (I've seen a case where someone turned off a surge protector and forgot to turn it back on; without power, the cordless phone won't work.)

To check if the problem is the phone line, I like to use an old corded telephone. Plug the backup phone in and check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, try a new RJ-11 cord. If there is still no dial tone, try the test phone at another jack. If you can, find the box where your telephone line service comes in. Open the box and look to see if there is an RJ-11 jack. If that jack is present, try using the test phone and listen for the dial tone. If there is no dial tone at the service box, contact your phone company. They should fix this problem for free. (It's possible that rodents have damaged the phone line outside of your home.) If the box doesn't have an RJ-11 jack, you'll need the phone company to test the service and repair it if needed.

If there is a dial tone at the service jack, then you have an inside problem. If there was no dial tone at only the first jack, you can check the jack itself. Unscrew the face plate and look at the back of the unit. There are two types of connections. If you have the screw terminals, look for a disconnected wire. Strip a new section of wire and secure it under the correct screw on the face plate. See http://cablesupply.com/content/47-telephone-connections-and-rj11 for the wiring pattern. If the jack uses a keystone, you'll need a punch-down tool that is available in many hardware stores in the electrical wiring section. Do not strip the conductor; just push it down into the correct slot of the keystone. If the problem is not at the jack, you'll need to check all of the wiring from the service box for damage. Your telephone company will do this for a fee.

If the test phone had a dial tone at all of the telephone jacks, then the problem is with the cordless handset and the base. One of the two units is not communicating correctly (transmit/receive). If your cordless phone is still under warranty, contact Motorola. If only one handset can be used with the base, replace the phone. If your cordless phone can pair multiple handsets with the base and only one handset is giving the "no line" message, replace the handset.

I hope this helps.

I have a GE Cordless 5.8 gigahertz handset and digital answerer. I can see the red light flashing during an incoming call, but hear no dial tone and no ringing. I just replaced the battery. The handset...


Hi,

Did you pay the Bill ?

this seems as if it,s incoming calls only. Check the line with an alternative Phone. This will verify the lines good. And eliminate that One.
Also check if theres A Tone/Pulse setting.
This can also have adverse effects.
If this is on an adaptor fitting with internet access, try removing the adaptor, and plugging the phone direct into the Socket.
Or try the phone on a seperate or diferent Socket.

Hope This helps.

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 :)

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.

All of my handsets say phone in use and i cant get them to hang up


Please check the line input at the base, if the cord is damaged or the line has no dial tone, you'll receive that message in all headsets, you could test by connecting any basic wired phone to the same cord, if there's dial tone maybe you have a defective handsets base.

The phone lights up when put to charge also the red light on the base,, but when the phone line is connected it wont work ..What do u think is the problem?


The battery in the handset could be bad . First I would test that the base unit is recieving dial tone by pressing speaker button on base unit. If there is dial tone then problem is in handset or in base unit communication to handset. Try resetting power to base unit. Check manual for any re-initialization procedure. If the base unit is not receiving dial tone then I would test that the phone line is delivering dial tone to the base unit by connecting a known good phone to the line cord. If the dial tone is not present , problem could be in line cord from outlet, outlet, building wiring, or service provider.

Uniden cordless phone


Hello, While I cannot locate that model in any Uniden database (you might want to find the literature), It sounds as if the handset may be communicating with its base, but you have lost the dial tone. Did any storms pass through recently? Here is what you do. Go to your base and push the locator button on your base station to call the handset via the page/locator function. If it rings the handset and you can answer it okay then you know your handset is working well and communicating with your base (the radio portion is working correctly). If it does not ring your handset then your Uniden is definately bad (radio wise). But, I am going to guess that it is okay but you still cannot communicate with the outside world and dial out to get dial tone or get an incoming call. Okay, so we have a dial tone problem. The next step is to see if dial tone is getting to your base. So you will need to take another good telephone, preferably a handy "line powered" telephone (no batteries or ac adapter needed) you can use in a power failure emergency. Take that good phone and plug it into the phone cord you unplug from your Uniden base. If you get dial tone, then your uniden does need repair. If it does not get dial tone, then you have a bad cord, jack or something in your phone wiring. If thats the case, change cords, look for corrosion, dirt or bent pins in the jack on the wall. My guess is that your Uniden has gone bad, likely from a slight surge on the phone line. If you do need your Uniden repaired you can contact Uniden they are at http://www.uniden.com/repair/service.cfm , however I don't believe they offer repair, but offer to sell you a replacement. Or you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com where you can get your Uniden Cordless unit repaired, not exchanged. Good Luck, CG
