Phone will not ring

Casio PhoneMate TP-340

Recently I have changed my phone service, we went from a landline to VOIP service.
Anyhow, my Casio TP-340 does not ring to announce incoming calls. The other phone in the house does ring.
The ATA I am using is a Linksys spa-2120.

I have been tinkering with these setting but have had no luck:

    Hi Jerry,

    Thank you for your reply.
    Where can I find the ringer equivalence number?
    Do not understand what I have to do to fix the problem.

    thanks,
    Fabio

    I also have changed providers from Bell telephone to Rogers (in Canada).
    Other phones in the house ring, but casio TP-340 does not ring and ansering machine does not kick in, but if I pick up the pohone, I can connect with callers and I can also call out. Is there a setting I can adjust or will I ned to replace this phone set? Please advisevia email.

    Regards

    Glad to hear someone else has the same problem. Symptoms the same on comcast cable phone through their proprietary modem, no ring, no answer, but may connect. When it stopped I plugged in another (newer) phone with answering machine that worked, but couldn't page me. In desperation, I plugged in the TP 340 again and it worked for several weeks, then quit again. This week it quit again. resetting the modem didn't help. I suspect that the cable signal is variable, but will ask Comcast.

I have the same problem for this hpone. The phone can answer and make call but not ring, of couse the answer machine function does not work. I used Rogers home phone and now the Linksys voip adaptor. But the phone works well with landline. I think the ring votage may not enough to ring the phone. Anyone get the solution?

They are sending a square wave and not a real generated analog sine wave. This is the problem. This would be a situation like comcast. or any Voip transmission cable modem fiber or skype ect.

Jerry has it somewhat right. The ringer voltage leaves the Central office at 105 ac at 17 cycles or hertz.

Cable or internet type service from the box sends a square wave.

There is not enough electronic voltage to run older western electric phones. maybe just one. The ones' with the real bell that energize the bell winding need a sign wave that is not square,

If the phone rings while being used on a common land line but not when signalled by the linsys then the linksys is no providing enough power to trip the ringer. You may read a high enough voltage but it still has to provide enough current for ringer operation. the phone is labled with a ringer equivalency number and that should not exceed the output of the linksys. Thank you. Jerry

    Fabio: That isn't the problem, try the other jack that works with your operational phone. If it still doesn't function it can only be a ringer voltage problem. If you put your fingers across the pair when it's ringing you will feel the inductive kick, it can't hurt you but something you won't want to do for kicks. The ringer voltage from your local office can be as high as 100 volts but of course no amperage so it's safe. I looked on google but couldn,t any info pertaining to you phone. Goodluck. Jerry

Make or send a call not connecting


Do you have VOIP or a landline for your phone? If you have VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocal) you need the phone plugged into the modem. It will not work if it is plugged into the regular jacks in your walls because the phone line comes from your internet connection.

DECT 6.0 home phone doesn't ring after switching to u-verse/voip


Have you tried to plug the base unit into a different phone jack to see if it might just be that outlet. You may have a short in that particular phone jack or a loose wire there.

Good Luck.....

I'm moving my business from canada to america but i have to phone numbers one local which is a canadian area code and one toll free i want both of them to ring my cell phone is this possible (what about...


VoIP phones can do this, but there are obsticles in keeping your phone numbers and forwarding to your cell phone or you can call your phone provider and get them to twin your number to your cell phone.

First the VoIP phone home base station will be in Canada... meaning that you can get transfered calls to you VoIP phone anywhere in the world so long as you have a high speed internet connection.

When you call out on the VoIP set, you will be using the Canadian dial tone, making all your calls long distance if you are in a different area code.
So 2 phones maybe required if you want to call locally in America.
Your 911 calling will have to reflect your address in America, or you need to have a big sticker telling the customer no 911 calling because the outbound number will be coming from Canada, not the US where you are located.

VOIP will no ring


Just "VOIP Phone" is not enough information to help you. There are many hundreds of different phones, connections, & setups you could have. What type of phone (make, model number)? Is this a VOIP phone connected through a home network, cable modem etc.. for home use? Is it a single line phone connected to a VOIP box connected to your cable modem? Is it a VOIP phone system connected to regular copper phone lines? Are you using a VOIP phone at home connected to a VOIP phone system at work?
