Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
Immediately lose dial tone from any phone jack in the house when Uniden EX1976 is connected to the line. Other similar cordless phones work fine.
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.

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

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.
