It doesn't ring

My mom bought this phone (after I recommended it for her since I had one and it works fine for me). After a few months the ringer does not ring. My husband just looked at it and choose the ringer for both phones, however, when you call her the ringer does not ring.

    I have the answering machine set and the expansion set. It all worked fine at first then after about a month the answering machine set stopped ringing and voicemail went to my service provider. The odd this is I can see someone is calling. Even weider, the non-answering machine expansion set rings normally.

    We have had the phone for several months and then it stopped ringing. The handset will light up showing caller ID and it may give one small chirp, but no ringing.

    I've tried both solutions posted for fixing the handsets not ringing but I still have the same problem at least once a week.

    My Do Not Disturb is set in both of the handsets. I have tried to shut it off, but have been unsuccessful. I no longer have my manual to know if I am even doing it right. Please help!

    I purchased these phones for my 77 year old mother 25 March 2008 and 01 April 2008 they would not ring. I thought it was an "April Fools joke" but it wasn't. After she had problems with the uniden cordless phones, I was certain that these phones would be the answer to any problems. When I got the call that they did not ring, I was angry. There was no reason for them not to be working. Everything about the phones were operational except they would not ring. None of them would ring!! For the money I paid for these phones, there is no excuse for this.

    MINE WON'T RING EITHER!! I can find where to turn the ringer up or off, I can find where to set up the many different ringtones –– all of which work, when testing –– but when it will not ring when someone calls! I have missed emergencies, job opportunities, calls from doctors. Everything else works; it does light up when someone calls, it displays the caller ID, it saves messages. It just doesn't ring. ISN'T RINGING THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE OF A PHONE? 

    After being so fed up with Uniden phones, I went out and paid $90 for these. I didn't save the packaging or the receipt and I am so upset. It's nice to know it's not just me. Isn't there something we can do?

I had the same issue. The silence button for the ringer had somehow been pushed and I couldn't get rid of it. I finally saw a solution for the question about setting the ringer to pick up the answering machine in a certain number of rings. It involved holding down the mute button until you got a menu. Once I got the menu I played around with the various options and finally got the do not ring sign to turn off. So basically you can somehow access it through holding down the mute button. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem. If the phone is plugged into an outlet with any other device, the phone may stop ringing until you plug into an electrical outlet where it is the ONLY device using that outlet. This has worked for me

Pebble ringer inop

Does it have a speakerphone function, does that work? It would seem that the second speaker is malfunctioning. There is usually seperate speakers for the earpeice and for the rigner/speakerphone. You could open the phone and make sure the speaker is sitting correctly, it could have rotated off it's contacts. But you may have to replace the speaker, possible found on eBay.

Hi! i just bought a lg-ks360 and i don't know what to do! i just can't hear the phone ring when i get a call or a text message. i tried using the alarm clock and it was useless, i just didn't hear it ring!...

You may just have the phone's ringer at a very low volume or on vibrate. Just raise the ringer volume and you'll be able to hear everything. If you're listening to a mp3, pause it and try to raise the ringer volume.

My sounds doesn,t work, even when a person calls me the phone does,n give a sound, only tril

Hi,is like the ringer of the phone is BAD.
Why it does not ring or sound out is because,the ringer is damaged..and it needs replacement. Before you replace it,you can clean up where the ringer is,there might be dirt stopping it to work.But you have to unscrew the phone to see where the ringer is.
Please if you have no knowledge about the phone,you can contact a skillful personnel for assistance.

Have a nice day.

Thanks for using fixya......

Ringer on Sony SPP-S2730

The main board in the base is bad, I was never able to pinpoint the bad component after changing a few circuit board parts.

I only saw this problem in the 2730.

The only fix I found while at the Sony Service Center was to replace the board.

Radio Shack sells a remote ringer.... You could hook that to the phone line and it would ring... Not the best fix but it would help... Even another phone in another room...

Sorry.... This problem frustrated me.... Wanted to find the fix... The board is expensive if avaliable....
