Can't get rid of "LINE IN USE"

Had phone in pocket when I bumped into something. Took out of pocket and tried to clear.. punched some other buttons.. don't remember what...
Have tried everything I can think of.. including taking the batteries out and unplugging the base unit.. (no dial tone) when talk is pushed.
Have de-registrated and re-registrated..
Have tried to reset to default..

Any thoughts on how fix. Has worked well up to this point,, Just needs a clear button..

Try plugging a regular corded phone into the phone jack. if you have a dial tone there, then you might have broken the phone in your pocket,[ the phone being stuck, broken or shorted into answer mode that's why it's saying "phone in use"

Since you have mentioned about an hardware stress on the phone, the contacts to the display of the phone needs to be checked. Something has broken so that the power to the display or the power button is not working . Have it checked at a phone repair shop mentioning these points

Yes, there is a small switch that says "HOLD" - switch it off of there. The "hold" feature is to prevent the unit from operating while in a pocket or something if you bump a button.

I have a Mitel 5220 IP Phone with one of the programming lights flashing red. When I check the server, there is no key assignment, but when I check the phone itself, the button is set to Agent Status Key....

In the phone system, assign something to the button. Then clear it. Did it clear at the phone? If this doesn't clear, I suggest deleting and re-programming the phone.

Hi, you probably won't get this anymore, but here is the fix (I had the same problem and couldn't get rid of it. Had no messages or calls that I hadn't viewed). You will laugh but press the Clear / Mute button for a few seconds. That is the bottom right button out of the four that are around the big round one. It has a C on it, a line under the C and the mute symbol underneath... Good Luck. Julia

Comfortzone heater displaying error message doFL.

According to the call line, hold down the up, down and enter buttons all at the same time and it should clear it. I took mine back and had it replaced so I never had a chance to try this.

I have envy 3 and it unlocks by itself

there is a way to make the phone have a double lock. instead of only pressing the okay button once to unlock, it requires 2x, making the chances of it "pocket unlocking" much more slim. on the front, go to keyguard. and then unlock options, and try press twice. good luck!

I see a white line on my camera window is there any way i can get rid of that white line? i am using samsung e900

A white line.

Mean the the lcd is damage, the only way to get rid of it it to replace the LCD screen, you can take it to a sahop or try to find one on EBAY. and replace it.

well the lcd might not be damge but there no power going to that line of screen, probably because it got droppped or left in the sun to long, or possibly, something broke it while in a pocket or purse. (like keys or a cell phone) could be a number of things.

but most likely its need to be replaced.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Can't get rid of "LINE IN USE"

I have repair some cordless phone a lot with your same problem .Your Handset is encountering a left over switch on your buttons what i mean is that the switching is logged. do some cleaning on the carbonized switch of the handset . check if there is moist assembling on switches if none try to clean the carbonized switch and keypad with alcohol cotton buds try also to swipe out the worn out carbon on the switch. if these wont help . your handset might have component damage already like an IC defect . that is why your phone wont work . It is best to bring you phone to the manufacturers service shop.
