Re: i can hear the radio on the phone

I have two of the 2541YRE3 units (where Y is a 3 or 4) and both pick up the local 1620AM radio station. Good to know it's only in the handset. I tried swapping the handset and cord with that from the 2540YRE3 model (which does not suffer this problem).

But, I have no solution. I am getting them replaced by finding 40Y models where I can.

I'm hearing radio stations in the background. This doesn't happen with any of the cordless handsets or other phones that I plug into same jack.

You have 2 things going on - a phone wire which is a simple CAT3 cable, probably running along the attic somewhere which is acting as an antenna and, you're probably close to where a AM station has its antenna. Rerouting your phone cable or better yet, upgrading the cable to CAT5 would eliminate this "feature".

I can hear, but not talk, on my ATS RA2184BB cordless phone.

Have you tried unplugging your base station and all the handsets?

Sometimes the base station, where the power and the telephone line plugs into needs a reset. Just like a computer sometimes it needs a reboot.

If problem presists, take a regular analog phone and plug it in to the same jack as the cordless phone bas station, and see if it is a cable issue/ telephone company issue.

Headset says "Line in Use"


I see this problem frequently and it typically happens after a storm but can happen in fine weather too. Your base station has taken a surge and needs replacing or repair. You can just buy the base, and re-register your handsets to it and off you go. If you google Siemens cordless repair you can find someone. Hope that solves your problem. Good Luck

Vtech cordless phone appears to be mute

Try the "hard reboot". /1/ Unplug power from base station. /2/ Disconnect battery in each handset. /3/ Wait a few minutes. /4/ Reconnect battery. /5/ Re-plug-in power to base station. /6/ Place handset in base station, and wait a few minutes for it to recover.
You may have to reset time/date and/or the handset ##.

Cross talk

The easy way is to buy a radio surpressor. You can find them at Radio Shack, I think. Unless you live very close to a radio station you probably have a ground on your phone line. this can happen either inside or outside you business. Also if you are using a long mounting cord, 25' and up this can act as an antenna and cause radio pick up. I would try to detremine if your problem is on the phone company lines or inside your business.
the question said cross talk, are you hearing the other lines while you are on one line? If so you may have inproper wiring inside your building. Multiple phone lines must be on twisted wire. If two lines are parrell for any measurable distance they will bleed over to the other line.
