Question about Panasonic KX-TGA101S Cordless Handset

1 Answer

Uniden DECT 6.0 2080-2 rings for no reason

My Uniden 2080-2 rings once at differnet time intervals (no set pattern) from every 10 minutes to once every several hours with no incomming call. I can even go a whole day or night without it ringing. It is just one phantom ring every once in a while. I do not have any of those extra caller ID or voice mail type services. I cannot find a solution in the manual. Is there a way I can make it stop?
Thank you!
Erick


I have the same problem as eaho's, only with a Panasonic DECT 6 KX-TGA101S. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks:

Conan

These DECT 6.0 phones work on 1.9 Ghz frequency and should not have any interference other than from another DECT 6.0 phone that can be within 150 ft of your phone. That means that somebody, a neighbor that has a DECT 6.0 phone close by is causing this problem. It also means that they are also getting these phantom phone rings. The best solution? Go to a 5.8 Ghz phone and your problem should go away.

    Our DECT 6.0 phone rings once exactly every 15 minutes and there are no other cordless mobiles within 150 metres of us. We are on a campus. Certainly no phone is being used exactly every 15 minutes. We had the same issue at the same interval over a year ago in a different building with a different phone and resolved it by using a different type of cordless phone. Our phone system is spread across a few campuses and uses extension numbers.

    Ok. We found the solution at work. We had to change a setting on the extension on our Phone Switch, Avaya G3R. We unchecked the Test selection on the phone extension and the phantom phone rings went away. If you don't have a local phone switch then you need to call your local provider, most likely AT

I have a Uniden D3097. It is ringing only once on incoming calls. I have called from a different phone and it rings several times for the caller then goes to a generic VM not the VM I set up.


By any chance do you have call forwarding turned on? That would account for the single ring and the unfamiliar voicemail. Call forwarding is a service provided by your phone company or cable voice company which allows you to transfer incoming calls to another phone number, such as a cell phone. It's usually activated by pressing a key sequence (such as *72) and entering the number of the phone that you want to receive your calls. It's easy to turn it on and then forget to turn it off. You can turn it off with another key sequence, such as *73. Contact your phone company for the correct code.

These machines come with several receiving modes that can be programmed ... mostly by design but quite often ... by accident.

I would check the User Manual for Ring Patterns, Silent Reception and Fax Priority.
You can always see or print out the Option Settings of your facsimile. There it will show the exact picture of what the fax must know before answering the incoming call.
Does it have Fax Tone Detection? Is it set for automatic answering? Faxback? Polling?

Maybe a power hickup might have scrambled some of the programmed features?
Obviously nobody in the location monkeyed around with tha fax buttons, right?

The hot water recirc pump in my new house was equippped w/ this timer. There was no user manual, but it was set by the installer to run the pump during awake hours and shut it off during sleep hours. ...


1) Open link below so we are talking about same type of household system
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) 15 minute interval is misleading.
Pins located on timer dial divide 24-hour day into 15 minute intervals.
You set timer pins and decide which 15 minute intervals you want ON-or-OFF. Do this by moving pins inward or outward with your thumb or ink pen. To check settings, manually rotate timer dial clockwise and listen for pump turning on-off..
Set timer pins for 4 consecutive 15 minute intervals, then timer runs for 1 hour.
After pins are set, then manually rotate dial to set current time.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins click a lever that turns pump on-off.

3) 5-year Life span. Like all things plumbing, if you have hard water or sand-n-dirt in water lines, then pipes clog. And pumps clog.
Once motor begins to slow down, it overheats and burns out.
Water softener can keep sediment out of lines, but shortens life of water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

4) Real question: do you need a circulation pump? Do you need hot water at your faucet? Can you schedule hot water use, or does recirculation pump have to run several hours per day?
Recirculation pumps causes water heater to run more, the pump consumes 25+ watts depending on pump, and water savings claims of 15,000 gallons per year are fabrication.
Realistic water savings is 700-2000 gallons per year, assuming several folks in the home use water sporadically across a full day, and each time water is used people are waiting for hot water. It also assumes that you never want cold water at the tap and that refrigeration ice maker line prefers hot water to cold.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on pump/timer or any do-it-yourself project.
We are always less expensive than a service call.

I want a programmable timer that can, eg, switch on a single phase electric motor for 10 seconds every hour. It may be 9 secs or 11 secs.


You need a programmable interval timer.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#ET70
Intermatic and Tork make digital timers with interval settings that can be set for specific short-duration with 1 minute minimum.
(Or set to pulse bell ringing with 1-127 seconds.
10 minutes is 600 seconds)
For example ET70115 single-channel timer.
The timer would be set for 24-hour operation, and then programmed for Pulse, and then set timer with 24 programs, with 1 program for each hour.

Mechanical cycle timers from Intermatic:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#cycle
1) Talento 1 hour cycle timer/ each tripper represents 1.25 minutes
2) Model C8835/ each tripper represents 15 seconds.
To operate these timers certain hours of the day, add another timer in-line.
The in-line timer could be digital, but remember digital timers are not protected from power surge and tend to have more problems, and do not have replaceable clock motors and trippers.

How do I use use a distinctive ring to separate the incoming fax from the incoming normal calls I want to direct to the answering machine. I am from S. Africa. I am using an all in one Samsung SCX-4521F. I...


Firstly, you will need to get a 2nd ringtone from your phone provider. Most of them will provide a designated "fax ring" (not a new number) for little or no cost.

In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. “Distinctive Ring” is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to answer several different services.

Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax machine can “learn” the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax machine. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the
extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack. You can easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring
Pattern Detection at any time.

Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection, you will need access to another telephone or someone available to dial your fax number from outside (a cell phone will do!).

To set up the DRPD mode:

1 Press Menu until “Fax Setup” appears on the top line of the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “Receive Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “DRPD Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
4 When “Set” displays on the bottom line, press Enter.
“Waiting Ring” appears on the display.
5 Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not necessary to place the call from a fax machine.
6 When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call.
The machine requires several rings to learn the pattern.
When the machine completes learning, the LCD displays “End DRPD Setup”.
If the DRPD setup fails, “DRPD Ring Error” appears. Press Enter when “DRPD Mode” displays and retry from step 3.
7 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.
When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available in the Receive Mode menu.

To receive faxes in the DRPD mode,
you need to set the menu to DRPD;

NOTES:
• DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or connect the machine to another telephone line.

• After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the machine answers with a fax tone. Then have
a call placed to a different number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.

• In Tel mode, you can receive a fax by picking up the handset of the extension phone and then pressing the remote receive code Alternatively, you can press On Hook
Dial
(you can hear a fax tone from the remote machine) and then press Start on the control panel of your machine.
• In the Fax mode, the machine answers an
incoming call and immediately goes into fax
reception mode.
• In Ans/Fax mode, the answering machine answers an incoming call, and the caller can leave a message on the answering machine. If the fax machine senses a fax tone on the line, the call automatically switches to Fax mode.
• In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. This option is available only when you set up the DRPD Mode.

The full user manual for your machine is located here

Hope that is of help to you :)
