Saturday night up to now I'm experiencing static and intermittent lose of dial tone in my phones. Before this all was O.K. I checked the street conn., seems ok. This is what I have--
1- From Bell street line ca., I have a blue wire going to right term. on term.block and a white wire going to left term. on term.block.
2- I have grey ca. going to the middle term. on term.block.
3- Phone lines are conn. as RD to right term., Y to middle term. and G to left term on term.block
Usually static with loss of tone is a damaged line somewhere. The static can be caused by a loose connection as well as corroded lines. The loss of tone is usually caused by a dead short in the line. I just re wired my dads house for the same thing and eventually found where a rabbit had chewed through the insulation on a wire outside. He was having the exact same symptoms as you are. Hope this helps, and good luck

At the cost of asking the obvious, please check phone line connection to the wall and the phone. Sometimes a minor disconnect can lose you dialing tone. If the phone company says line is good, try other phone jacks to see if you get dial tone.
If that happens on all phones and you have copper wiring inside and out it usually is caused by a high resistance open (bad wire connection) either inside or outside the house.. If it happens on only one phone it is either ther phone itself (swap with another phone to prove it's the phone) or the wiring to the phone has a loose connection or is bad. If it happens one all phones test it where the telephone connection comes into the house. If it is still noisy the call the local TELCO. Wet lines can also cause the same problem so if you suspect there was any water leaks in the house disconnect the inside wiring from the telephone entrance connection before testing other if the problem is inside TELCO will charge. If you using a wireless phone use a wired phone to do the testing.
Check the phone line were it comes into the house there is usually a point where the phone connection from the the TELCO outside wires connects to the inside wiring.
Remove the inside wiring and test the wiring that is on the TELCO side. If you get dialtone the trouble is in the inside wire. If you don't get dialtone call TELCO
This phenomenon is the phone lines and phone instrument rectifying the RF signal from your cell phone as it communicates periodically with the cell sites. The energy is rectified (turned into voltage) by the phone lines and appears as a buzzing pulsing noise in the home phone. This will trash a fax completely. There is NO solution except to turn off the cell phone or orient it away from phones and phone lines sufficiently to stop the interaction. You could put hte phone in a RF proof bag (metalized film) which would then prevent it from receiving an incoming cell call. Either way, you lose some usability of either home or cell phone for the duration of the issue.
check Grounding Connection. Also check Security Alarm interface
Static (buzzing) on your line are produced from analog equipment in your phone system (your phone and phone cable). When the phone adapter receives the sound data, it digitizes the data and eliminates the possibility of producing static or buzzing. Try using a different phone or replacing the phone cable and test if that resolves the issue.
not hearing a dial tone.
If you do not hear a dial tone, please check the following:
• Make sure the telephone and VoIP telephone adapter are plugged in
• Disconnect and re-connect the telephone cable
• Make sure your telephone is set to ring (not set to pulse) If the above items have been checked, it is possible your phone adapter needs to be rebooted.
• Reboot your equipment as described in "Rebooting Your Equipment."
• If this doesn't work, try the solutions as described in "Calling Issues with Firewall/Router"
No dial tone on telephone set? could mean alot of things. Phone went bad, jack is bad(test in different jack or from a network interface, either inside or outside. depending what your dwelling is)
Just to point out a fact, when dial from your mobile to that number that has no dialtone, that ringing sound you hear is from the central office that is putting out that ringing, it has nothing to do with the phone you're trying to ring to. You would hear the ringing sound, even if all your phones were unplugged from every jack in your dwelling.
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.
