The VT-9118 can use one of 4 different ring tones, and can be turned off. 

To reset your ring tone: 

  1. Remove the handset from the base. 
  2. Press PROG. You should hear a single short beep.
  3. Press #.  You should hear a single short beep. 
  4. Press a number 1 through 4. You should hear a long "ring" tone (it might be startling!). You can try other numbers from 1 to 4 to hear them all.  
  5. Press MEM to confirm your ring. You will hear a medium beep. 
To turn the ringer off, follow the same instructions, but choose number 5. 
Hope this helps you. If you need for information, you can download the user manual from http://www.vtechphones.com/docMgt/public/art/313/vt9118.pdf

I had the same problem but solved it last night. Here is how I fixed it.
On the base you have to hit set up and go through the different options to turn the ringer on or off.
On EACH handset you have to set the ring volume and tone.
Press the menu/select button it will say directory and call log and that's it right? Well the menu is BACKWARDS. You scroll UP with the volume button in the middle and you will get all the other options....home area code, clear voice mail, language, key tone,ringer tone, ringer volume, call log and directory. Highight the one you want and hit the menu button again to change the settings. You have to adjust the ring for each handset not just on one for all. Good luck.

Hi, got solution for this problem. you need to deregister it using global setup & then it'll ask you to put your handset back to base station for registration, so just connect it back to base station. it's a kind of reset but helps to get ringer working. it worked for me & i'm happy after little r&d.

Can i turn down the base ringer (or turn off) on my vtech dect 6.0?


Welcome to FixYa!

The base ringer is dependent to your handset ringer. If you lower the volume or turn off the handset ringer, the base ringer will follow.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.
