Re: cannot get phone to ring

Well. I unplugged the base unit from the wall and from the phone. When I plugged everything back in, it worked.

Please tell me how to turn the phone ringer back on! Right now it's off. My phone is a Panasonic KX-T7730. Somehow, while setting up my phone, I turned the ringers off & now my phone won't ring.

Hello Joyce Sia,

You have two ways to cut off ringing...

Look for a "DND" (do-not-disturb) control...
used for napping, studying or just plain
being left ALONE...


On the LEFT side of your base you should
also have a slide switch... a CRUDE volume
has three settings:
- big bell = High Volume
- small bell = Low Volume
- bell with an "X" over the top = OFF

Check these settings BEFORE you do a general power
and battery remove.. and begin All over AGAIN...

Phone ringer off

It a little bit older cordless phone, I CAN'T find the model number, there's a menu/elect button on the face but I can't turn the ringer off. The base has a ringer that I turned off but the phone still rings. There are no switches on the phone or base for turning it off.

I think the ringer is off on my NEC Dterm 80 phone. when a call comes in, I hear it ring at my bosses desk but not mine and my line is the main line. How do I turn the ringer back on. Thank you

Ringing is assigned in system programming, so if your phone doesn't ring you can't change that unless you have person on site who works on the system at that level. Some places use the night mode feature to make certain phones ring in day mode, and others to ring in night mode. Not very likely but sometimes the mode gets switched at places who don't realize they have another mode, suddenly only 2 phones ring instead of ...5. Feature,80,Feature, is the code to switch back and forth on a Pro II, an Elite, and an IPK system. This would be done at the reception phone. These phones also work on several other systems so don't know if this works for you. Or maybe you set Do Not Disturb, which would keep your ringer off.

My phone is ringing but cannot hear the sound only blinging the light. So how can i return back the ring sound?

Only 3 things make it not ring, there's a switch for the ringer on the left side of the phone, it needs to be programmed to ring in the 40x's, or the ringer is defective. If it rings on the intercom (with the AUTO ANS) turned off, it must be programming.

The phone does not ring. How do you turn the ringer back on? The phone model is a hybrid system kx77020.

There's a ringer adjustment on the side of the phone. Does it ring in another jack? Does another phone ring in this jack? Panasonic system ringing is controlled by system programming, usually 408-410 or somewhere near there. If the phone works in another jack or another phone works in this jack, then you need to either turn on the ringer or turn on ringing at that port.

You may have to find the programming in the manual, or call your service tech.

Cannot get phone to ring

Have you tried going into your menu to see if the ringer is shut off. Depends on your phone, but some of them you can push the # and it will take you to your ringer volume, maybe you have the phone shut off for the ringer.

Phone Doesn't Ring

If the phone has a dial tone, adjust the ringer loudness (this adjustment is on the bottom of some phones). Also check to see if there is a switch for turning off the ringer--and turn it on. In some cases, you can't connect more than five phones to a given line or they won't ring properly. If this is your situation, you may have to disconnect one or more phones, or at least turn their ringers off.
