SOURCE: No dial tone, just buzzing noise - should be 2 line phone, 1 jack

What you need is a dsl filter since you are working off a splitter. You can usually get these for free from your phone company.

SOURCE: Uniden 5.8ghz cordless W/2handsets has no dial

There can be a lot of different things that could cause this. The first thing I would do is disconnect the telephone cord from the Uniden phon eand connect it to another telephone and see if you get a dial tone from it. If you do then we know that the telephon eline and the cord are OK so we go back to the Uniden telephone. Next, does the unit light up when you plug it in? are you sure that the telephone is getting AC Power? Are the displays on the handsets working? Does the handset display show "Handset XX" or does it show "Searching"? If it shows "Handset XX" then the base unit is getting power, if not the base unit may not be getting power.
If the base unit is getting power and the handsets are working and the power cord and jack were proven good by conecting another phone to them, then you would need to call uniden Customer Service for further trouble shooting or repair/replacement. the number is 1-800-297-1026

SOURCE: continuous dial tone on phone line

There are two possible answers to this problem. The first thing is to check on the cordless phones, is a 2 way switch, one setting is for DP=Dial pulse (setting for old rotary phones) 2nd setting is TT= Touch Tone. I would guess that the setting should be set to TT on both cordless phones for touchtone.
Second thing to do is to plug in the base unit of your cordless phone to a jack that currently has a landline phone plugged into it that works and test again. If cordless phone works OK then go back to the original jack that didn't work and reverse the wires in the jack: that is what is known as a "polarity" issue.

SOURCE: My phone screen says check

First be sure you have dial tone at the jack. Use a corded phone to do this with. If you do have dial tone then be sure you have ac at the outlet that the transformer is plugged in to. If there is no dial tone at the jack...go to your interface box outside and check for dial tone there....if none call the phone company. If you do have dial tone then you need to check your wires to the jack...or have the phone company do it for you. If you don't have ac at the outlet....check your breaker box or have an electrician check for you.

Check tel line error msg


Have you checked for dial tone on the line? It sounds like you have a problem with the inside wiring to the phone jack. To test your dial tone out call you number and use a screwdriver and stick it inside the phone jack on the wall, if you have dial tone to the jack you will hear the "short" that you are putting on the line.

Handset doesn't have dial tone. says check TEL line.


For this type of problem, you need to isolate the issue. It could be the phone, the inside wiring, or the outside wiring. I like to use an old rotary phone for testing but any basic corded phone should work. Get a new RJ-11 phone cable as well.

Unplug the base unit and plug in the test phone to that jack. Check if you get a dial tone. (Try a new cable if the initial one doesn't work.) If your test phone has a dial tone, then the problem is isolated to the cordless phone. (If the test phone works with the new cable, do check if Uniden works with that cable.) Modern phones are not designed to be fixed by the consumer. If the phone is under warranty, contact Uniden Customer Service. (Otherwise decide if the costs are worthwhile for you; there will be a significant delay before the phone is returned/replaced.)

If you do not get the dial tone, you need to track down the wiring issue. Next move to another jack on the phone line and check if there is a dial tone on your test phone. If there is a dial tone, you have isolated the problem to the jack or the wiring to the jack.

If there is still no dial tone, find where your telephone service comes in to your building. If you can, open the box. Determine the type of connection used there. If you are lucky, you will find a RJ-11 jack for your phone line. Plug in your test phone and check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, contact your telephone provider. They will fix this outside problem for free.

If the connection is not a RJ-11 jack, you will need to call the telephone company so that they can determine if the problem is inside or outside.

If you do have a dial tone, then the problem is with the inside wiring. Inspect the visible wires for damage. Open the faceplates for the jacks and check for loose wires. There are two types of connectors. Screw type connectors need the wire stripped back a little then wrap around the screw and tighten. The other type is a punchdown jack. To repair a loose wire in this, you will need a punchdown tool. These are often available in hardware/home improvement stores in the wiring section. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has clear pictures of the wire color to pin pattern.

You may want a professional to check the wires inside the walls. Your telephone provider will do this for a fee.

I hope this helps.

House Phone not working


It's not an assumption, it's fact. It's not their problem, it's yours, since you get dialtone at the box.

With a meter or continuity checker, you could figure out if there is a short in the wire. Without those items, the best way to check it is to first look for a broken wire right at the interface. Then, if that's not it, plug the jack into the protector and IMMEDIATELY go to a phone and see if you hear dial tone. It will go to a busy if you wait too long. If you hear dial tone, then you probably have something off the hook or using the line. If it's still dead, then you probably have an open wire or short.

Technical training is beyond the scope of this forum, but a "cheap" meter (VOM) from the "Shack" is probably less than $15. If you unplug the line from the box outside and set the reading to ohms, your meter should read infinity or no resistance on an idle line. After you get that condition and plug the line back in, a meter shold read 48-52 DC volts on a working phone line.

Swicth from tone to pulse


1) When the phone is in standby mode, press and hold the caller id/menu key.
2) Press the vol/ / key three times to select Dial.
3) Press the select key to toggle between Tone and Pulse.
4) Press the end key or return the handset to the base unit to complete the setting. The handset returns to standby mode.

This phone also has a feature that allows you to use Pulse dialing to make calls, but allows you to switch to tone dialing for automated systems (like “Please Press 1 for English) here are the steps for that:

Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects, press
the */tone key. Enter the desired number. These digits will be sent as tone dialing.
Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.

No dial tone no incoming calls or outgoing calls


Have You Tried Replacing The Cable Connecting the Base To the Wall Jack? If Not Do That...
If that doesnt work there should be a channel button on the handset try that...If that doesnt work i would say the handset itself is bad.

Uniden cordless phone. No dial tone.


Hi peddler65, did you plug your phone into another area to see if there is a dial tone. Then if not call the phone company or find the D-mark (where your dial tone ) comes into your home and put a jack on that and plug a phone in with all phones in the house unplugged.

Thanks.

No dial tone


Did you plug in another phone to see if there is dial tone. Then if not call the phone company or find the D-mark (where your dial tone ) comes into your home and put a jack on that and plug a phone in with all phones in the house unpluged. Let me know this is a very general comment about dial tone so if you can get more specific that would be great.

Uniden TCX805 Cordless "loses" dial tone


Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.
