What this indicate means that your phone have been over power.

What you need to do to solve the phone problem is to carefully put off the the phone for some time allow it to relax it self for above five minute then put it on again.


Then you start to operate your phone again and it will resond to your command.

Thanks for using fixya.

Hi, Please check whether the mic has gone bad in your handset.

the connectivity is just fine as your are able to hear the caller. but if you think there must be something wrong with the caller's phone, try calling someone else and check.

please let me know if you need more help. Thank you:)

Phone won't ring with incoming calls

I just bought a new Uniden DECT 6.0 phone and had a similar problem. It wouldn't ring when plugged into my Linksys voip router, but my old 5.8 GHz did ring. It would get a dialtone and make calls, but when called via an outside line, it would appear as if it was ringing. If I picked up during this "silent ring," it would answer and take the call. It wasn't a ringer volume issue. I called tech support, they said on the main headset, unplug the battery, then unplug power from the base, then unplug the phone cord from the base. Wait 15-30s. Plug the phone cord, then power, then reinstall the battery. Press the End button on the phone. Put the phone on the base for 15-30s. Pick up the phone. Press and hold the Find button on the base. Do this Find thing 3 times. Put the phone back on the base. Wait 10-15 minutes. Then try calling it to see if it rings. Worked for me, finally got it to ring before I decided to return it.

Message box says full, but machine shows 0 messages

Do you also have a telephone-company provided answering feature on your line (such as Verizon's home voice mail)? I've known other people who got this service as part of a package from their phone company without realizing it, and had just the same trouble. Your callers may be reaching that instead of your answering machine.

Most companies alert you to waiting messages through "stutter dialtone." When you pick up your handset you'll hear two or three short bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. This is your signal to pick up your voicemail messages. Are you hearing this?

Check with your telephone service provider if you are unsure. If your telephone answering machine says it hasn't taken any messages, the full box message must be coming from them.

No dialtone

If you use Dsl as a internet provider make sure you have the filters on each phone. If you use cablevision and have a wireless connection make sure you chage the phone to a 5.2ghz because you might have the wireless router with the same ghz causing a coflict. This will also create loss. of internet connections then you use the phone

Try this. 1.Remove the battery. 2.Reinsert the battery WHILE PRESSING AND HOLDING THE STAR AND POUND KEYS. This worked on my dct 648-2. Good luck. WAGZ9
