Re: no dial tone at all
If the non-cordless phones are ok, it sounds as if the cordless handsets are the only ones not working, have you charged the batteries on those handsets ok and are there any signs if life, eg lights or on-screen messages ? Are they switched off ?
If there are signs of life, check the level of charge, if dead completely, take it/them to the main unit and put on charge for about 10 hours, if they work for only a short time and you have had the phones for a few years, then you will need to replace the re-chargable cells as they don't last forever and they are not holding the charge.
Hope this has given you some clues.....

Change the channel or code setting. It's also possible the 'pairs" for your house and your neighbors are "crossed". Does it happen with all phones or just the cordless one. If it's all phones, the problem is in the phone lines.
Depends on the phone system or service you are using. On a regular land-line you can do a 3-way call (if you have this option available to you through your service provider). To do this: 1. Call the first party. 2. Once the caller is on the line ask them to hold while to connect with the 2nd party. 3. Flash to dial tone. There may be a flash button on your phone or you may just press talk. In any case you should hear a quick "beep..beep..beep" then dial tone. 4. Now you can dial the 2nd party and click the flash (or talk) again to return to the 1st party and you both should hear the phone ringing for the 2nd party.
There's hundreds, if not thousands, of different phones, phone systems, and provider combinations that have different procedures for making conference calls. This is probably the most basic way. Hope this helps
Step by step information at the link below. Brother Fax T96 The F/T
Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the
same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all
extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of
rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call
and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the
telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending
fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.
If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a
telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double
ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These
tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external
phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine
will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay
period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax
machine for receiving.
If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91
for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait
to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.
If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the FaxStart or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.
If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.
If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.
Lol, i love your solution, but anyway, the cause of the problem isn't simple. First of all, if the phone has always been this way then it is a manufacturing problem. However, if it is of recently that the problem occurs, then a circuit blew in the phone. To prevent this from happening when you get a new phone, keep it cool because heat causes the circuits to be on the fritz.
