SOURCE: Phone won't ring

Hi Melissa,


The phone system (cpu, Brains, Switch) is set for auto answer on your Ext. Either power was lost, programming changed or something along those lines. It is global, so if a call "rings" @ your phone, (any call) you can just lift the receiver and speak.


It sounds like the associated phone lines ringing in "lost" memory of your extension. Therefore it must be programmed or in the case of a toshiba system it has a software "glitch or bug". usually due to "I don't know". So I usually find a change was done to ringing by the vendor or just power loss to the system.

there are a million variables because it was manufactured in asia usually. I would need some more info. to be sure. I can tell you it is NOT your phone. try to reset the phone by unplugging for a minute , if no luck you will need the vendor to reset your Ext. with a laptop or do it yourself with the codes from the main or switchboard ext. I am sure I can give you the info to do this and make it ring again, but you are best off calling the dealer in case fat fingers get wild . you could do much harm by trying by one wrong entry and it is what I call Jinglish ( Japanese English or bad translation) in the manual. $80 or so is worth it , mostly if someone was out to change stuff while you where gone.


Or jus unplug the phone system and wait 1 minute before plugging it back in,  that will reset the system kind of like rebooting windows and forcing it to re - load the system.


Good luck, let me know.

SOURCE: Cross ring tone from other line

That problem is related to cross talk on the line, it is a difficult problem to solve, it could be cause by either the lines in the telephone system or even on the lines entering in the building. What some times happens to cause this is that somewhere on the line which is just a pair of cables, could be some water. If there is water connecting on two lines potentially, they could leak in to one another. You should make a service call with your telco company and have them put their ****-set on the lines at the demark to see if the cross talk happens there, if so than the responsibility is on the provider. If not it could be your telco responsibility. You should try and find out exactly what line the cross talk is happening on aswell.

I hope that helps.

SOURCE: Wont Ring, Wont pick up another line, upgrading phone lines

You will have to do a little programming to accomplish this. I attached a website to this message that has all the Toshiba manuals. You will have to look at program number 16 for line access and 81 for ringing options. The code to get in program mode is *#*#1*2*3. Hope this helps.

Why won't the answering machine take a message from a caller when I'm on the phone. Also, why can't it ring for more than 4 rings?

it is not in the programming to accept calls while you are talking to another . most land line phones only have 2 settings on number of rings before the machine picks up .

Can I use a land line phone with an answering machine and still use verizon's land line answering service?

Can you not control it by setting the number of rings before answering very high on the device you DO NOT want picking up the call?

No dial tone on Uniden Dect 6.0 land line and portable phone

We've had the same problem with our new Uniden phone. Sounds like someone's on the other line - no dial tone and answering machine doesn't work. The telephone line works though because we plugged our old phone in and it works fine. Any solutions anyone?

Can't be heard

Sounds like you have a defective microphone in your handset. Maybe caused by dropping of phone or water damage. Try land line phone not cordless. Just to ensure that you can hear the caller and can be heard over your phone line.

If you can complete a call successfully go and purchase another cordless phone.

Transferr callers to cell phone

pick up the headset, dial *72 wait for the fast beeps to end, then dial your cell number. After the cell number rings, pick it up, hang up and your calls are forwarded. (You need to have the call forwarding feature from your land line provider). Dial *73 to release. I do this all the time with my system and it works fine...

Our 5.8gh uniden phones all have static one land phone 3 extension.

disconnect the ac adapter from the base - before you plug the phone back in with power - press and hold down the menu button (center silver button under the led display) and the number "1" and then plug it back in - keep holding those two buttons until the date and time reappears - it worked for me and it didnt erase the phone numbers stored in the base unit.

No ring out when line switched.

It could be that the line that you are connecting to is not the number that you think it is. call someone that has caller id and make sure that is the number you think it is. Do other phones ring when connected to that jack?

GE 5.8 Cordless... When one I answer from one handset, I can hear the caller but they can't hear me... and no, the mute button isn't on... thanks...Amy

Make sure that you are speaking clearly, No joke, but more answers could be notified by your land line seller, they should tell you exactly how to fix it, or provide you with a new one.
