Re: sound quality is horrible how do I change channel on...

This is per Panasonic tech support:

From any handset unit perform following:
Press Menu
then press 0 5 3
Press 1 to set the Line Mode to A.

Note: You only have to adjust the setting once. This will adjust the the entire system.

Should improve the sound quality. If not then call Panasonic tech support at 1800-211-PANA.

How can this issue be fixed: Some callers to me (my magicjack) get message "your call did not go through." ?

Unfortunately the quality of the MJ depends entirely on the quality of your internet connection, if calling to/from another MJ user the problem gets worse, because it now depends on the quality of their connection as well as yours! Main reason you are getting "call did not go through" is because MJ circuits are overloaded..way too many customers use it at the same time, sooner or later this will negatively impact on its performance. Not much you can do about it, but then again you only pay $29 for a years free calling thats the trade off!

We have a set of 5 Uniden PowerMax 5.8 phones. The original set came with 3 phones, and we added two others. We have a lot of problems with bad quality on our phone calls. Sometimes we get a sound like...

How do you reset the phone system... it sound like a rotary dial when Im calling out

If it's rotary then your system was reset already.
When a system defaults it will assign 2 lines to all phones and give Jan 1 as the date.

Change from Rotary to Touch tone is done under Config/Lines/Data

If unsure who to program or navigate or config password then call in a vendor/tech.

I have recently purchased 4 Gigaset AL140's which are all registered to the same base, and found that, every now & then when someone calls, there's what sounds like a fax tone in the background. No -...

The sound you are hearing is radio interference, which is stated in the manual and on the base itself as having to be accepted. There are a couple of steps you can take to prevent this:
Move the base to a location away from other radio devices, including but not limited to: Microwaves, computers, dvd/cd/audio players, other phones, radio's, basically anything electronic that sends out a signal.
Moreso, cordless phone's generally have a feature allowing you to change the channel that they send/recieve signals on. Changing this may have a better effect on sound quality. The instructions on how to do so are in your manual!

Good luck

When talking on the phone it cuts out and sounds like someone else is dialing on the line and is all fuzzy..also when no one is on the phone it will say line in use and calls cant go in or out. We...

On many UnidenĀ® phones, there is a button labeled "CH". It is usually found towards the base of the of the front of the handset & often has more than one function.

Just in case this does not solve this issue, inspect the phone line & its connectors at the main phone base. Damage or close proximity to known producers of interference (fluorescent lighting, microwave ovens, high-current power lines (usually inside the wall), a noisy power strip, or proximity to a motorized appliance (such as a vacuum cleaner) could cause issues with the fidelity of the sound quality.

If this is a problem that developed over time, then another possibility could be the development of oxidation on the charge points in the phone base's cradle. Clean these contacts once a month with a pencil eraser to allow the battery/batteries to fully charge. This could affect the range, battery endurance, & sound quality. Give this 12 hours to fully charge those batteries to see if it was the actual issue.

Clicking sounds when making or receiving calls on a handset. Used to work fine and this recurring problem developed.

Probably there is an interference, have you tried changing the channel that these cordless phone is running on?

My Philips SE 450 sounds awful. I hear my own voice in my phone as I talk. It is like an echo.

you may have to enable a feature called voice enhancing on your voice, the echo is sometimes caused by feedback from various sources. it should appear as a VE symbol when you have it turned on, this helped me greatly when I was going through the same prob, it also makes the phone reception sound better on both ends. you may have to call the phone company to check to see if they installed the lines right in the first place. Also if your phone has the ability to change channels you can keep switching channels until you find one that sounds better to you.

Not sure it this is a solution for ALL your problems, but...

I had a similar issue: Phone rings, caller ID info displays then seems to hesitate, then displays only "INCOMING CALL."

The issue seemed to be caused by interference with other devices on the same line (in my case, an alarm system).

Tech support had me change a setting on my TRU9466 base unit (this is one of the PowerMax 5.8ghz models). This is how we did it step-by-step on the base unit:

select LINE 1
switch to TYPE B

This seems to have solved the Caller ID "interference" issue -- my Caller ID now displays as it should. The Tech Support person suggested trying that TYPE A/TYPE B setting on "OFF" if TYPE B didn't solve the problem, but thankfully, it did.

Now Cheryl, it sounds like your issue is more involved than this -- I didn't have any connection problems -- but perhaps they're related -- you might try my solution.
