No dial tone at all

The phone will ring, but the party calling cannot hear us, nor can we hear their voice. Only the two non corless phones still.

    Thanks, BUT... All the handsets have charged batteries and light up when connected, only there is no sound coming in

  • ppanaman Mar 06, 2008

    My base + cordless phones do not ring at all when I get a call. I have non-uniden phones and hear ring tones on them. But when I pick up the uniden phones, I can talk. I can make calls also using the Uniden phones. My problem is they just dont ring when receiving a call and my caller-id would not work either because of this. Help? Suggestions?

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.....

    Ah..that sounds more positive, it sounds as if something has happened ( perhaps a power failure ) which has de-registered the handsets and you will need to get them to "talk" to the base again, follow the directions as shown below in this section from the manual........good luck, or G/day....do you have the manual ?



    Can't make or receive calls.

    • Check both ends of the base telephone line cord.

    • Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into the base and wall outlet.

    • Disconnect the AC adapter for a few minutes, and then reconnect it.

    • De-register the handset (see "De-register the Handset" on page 32) and register the handset

    (see "Register the Handset" on page 68).

    • Make sure that you are not too far from the base.

    • Make sure the line is not in use.

    • If an outside call is already established, you can not make another outside call.



    De-register the Handset (Handset only)

    Deregister the handset's ID from the main base unit or the base ID from the

    handset. Use this option, for example, when you change the digital security code

    (see page 74).

    1) In standby mode, select Deregister HS in the menu and

    press the OK soft key. D e r e g i s t e r H S ? appears.

    2) Press volume up/down to select Y e s and then the OK

    soft key.

    When de-registration is complete you will hear a confirmation tone, and

    D e r e g i s t r a t i o n C o m p l e t e appears.

    3) After de-registering the handset, place the handset to the base to register.





    To register a TCX805 handset, simply place it in the main base.

    While the handset is registering, H a n d s e t R e g i s t e r i n g will appear in the LCD.

    When R e g i s t r a t i o n c o m p l e t e . is displayed, the handset has been registered to

    the base. If R e g i s t r a t i o n f a i l e d . appears, please try these steps again.

    To register a ELX500, TCX440, or TCX400 handset, follow the steps below:

    1) Disconnect the AC adapter from the main base.

    2) While pressing down flash/find hs, reconnect the AC adapter.

    3) On the handset, press and hold # until you hear a beep.

    While the handset is registering, H a n d s e t R e g i s t e r i n g will appear in the LCD. When

    R e g i s t r a t i o n c o m p l e t e . is displayed, the handset has been registered to the base. If

    R e g i s t r a t i o n f a i l e d . appears, please try these steps again.

Our phone rings, but we get the dial-tone when we answer and hear our neighbors conversation in the background


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.

How to do conference call


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

How can I get the telephone on my Brother Fax T96 to work?


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 seconds).
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 Fax Start 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.

Motorola TracFone C139: no dial-tone/no voice


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.
