This question was posted on the troubleshooting page for the VT-9118. This answer is specific to this model; other models have slightly different sequences.
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

WHEN I CALL MY HOUSE PHONE IT DOES RING BUT YOU CANT HEAR ANYTHING AND THERE IS NO DIAL TONE IN IT


you have a line fault. Phone your telecoms company. Often they can fix it at the exchange or on a pole, or the junction box outside your house.

Phone doesnt have dialing tone, cant make a call also when we ring home its goes to engaged tone


This means that your phone line is short circuited somewhere.
The technical name for it is Partial line Lockout.

Try unplugging anything connected to the phone line, including modems, fax machines, house alarms etc (as faulty equipment can cause this), then try ringing home again. If it now rings, plug things in 1 at a time and ring each time to see what is causing it.

If it is still an engaged tone with everything unplugged, then the short circuit is on the phone line in the street and needs to be repaired by your telephone company.

No dial tone cant make calls


No dial tone and inability to receive ring signals are symptoms of connection problems. The installation instructions should indicate how your telephone system should be connected to the network.

I cant get my phone to work. I get no dial tone and it says connecting but never connects. incoming calls ring but i cant answer


dear
There are a number of things that could be wrong. It really depends on what kind of circuit you have. Is it strictly copper or does it come from a pair gain system? I have had trouble calls for this very reason and I isolated the trouble to a pair gain card in the field. Have you tried dialing out when you have no dial tone? Most people don't realize that dial tone is not a requirement to make phone calls. It's an added feature that lets people know that it's working. It could also be a high open. Just means that one side or both wires of the pair are close to being broke and sometimes very hard to see. I would keep calling because they won't know you have trouble until you do so. Plus you will have documentation that it's an ongoing problem. Good luck.

Another possibility is a shunt caused by spiders or whatever. These can get much worse when it get's wet. They might clear on a ring too.

I'm voting for number 1 unless there is more info provided.

I'd provide Verizon with the RENs of all the phones added up. There is probably a 1/2 ringer or (1/2 REN) in the NID.

You need to determine if it's inside or out.

Exact same problem.


Is this a system phone?

It sounds as though your set is not programmed with a line appearance. and line preference is not set, this can be set for intercom, or a line or nothing when you pick up the phone. You can do a pick up code to answer until an appearance is programmed on your set.

Phone/fax not working after thunderstorm


Is this the only phone this happens on?  If not, try going to the Phone box on your house and connecting in directly there.  If you still have a problem call your phone company.
