People I call say they hear a buzz or interference on the line
Intermittently the person I am talking to can hear a lot of interference, kind of like a buzzing sound or static. I cannot hear it, but the people I am talking to can. Several people have told me it is similar to the sounds speakers make when a cell phone is near.
The phone is new.

is there a channel selection button/. if so try selecting different channel as lots of electrical equipment can interfere with walkabout phones as can hearing aids. have u asked neighbors if they are having same problem? might be a fault on line? u can check to see if there is a fault on the line by going to bt faultfinder and typing in your phone number and they check it for u for free. hope some of this helps?
There is no mystery, seriously. You send a fax exactly the same way as you make a phone call; instead of talking to a person, your fax machine talks to another fax machine. Clicks, squeals, buzz sounds.
If it says it's busy, well, it's busy If it doesn't answer, it's not set to AUTO RECEIVE If it says OFF HOOK another device is using YOUR phone line.
If you don't hear a dial tone when you press the HOOK or MONITOR key, the phone line is dead. Check the line with a regular phone.
If a dial tone sounds weird, it is a DIGITAL phone line. You need an ANALOG or regular phone line.
ALL FAX MACHINES ARE ANALOG DEVICES AND WILL NOT WORK RELIABLY ON A DIGITAL SYSTEM OR A COMPUTER....Magic Jack, Vonage, etc. are DIGITAL PHONE SYSTEMS. Don't believe what the Vendor tells you. They are for designed for VOICE GRADE PHONE CALLS ONLY.
The settings in your fax machine were designed by people who are a lot smarter and make more money than us. DON"T MESS WITH THE PARAMETERS.
I have the same sort of problem...kinda..lol. My Vtech sorta 'cuts out' when there is noise at my hosue. The person I'm talking to can still hear me but I can't hear them. If my son starts crying or there's any other loudish type noises on my end, it's like the phone is trying to cutout my background noise, but all it's cutting out is the person talking to me. It's not that the noises in my house are loud and I jsut can't hear the person I"m talking to, b/c if i cover the mouth peice then no matter how loud the sound in my house is i can still hear the person i'm talking to but I HAVE to keep the mouth peice covered. It's really annoying!
It could be interference with other electronic equipment, for example, one time I was talking on the land line home phone with a friend, while texting another friend on my cell phone (multitasking pro lol) and I heard a series of beeps on the land line phone whenever I sent and received messages.
it might be due to EMI(electromagnetic interference). if other phones or internet lines r nearby, u can hear the buzzing sound.. if EMI is the cause, then its best to keep the phones isolated from the devices causing them. Good luck!!
Buzzing phone lines can be a multitude of problems. The prior post that I saw for you stated that the person on the other end did not hear the buzzing. This tells me that you have a cordless phone. If this is the case first try cycling through the channels listening each time for a clear channel. If that does not work consider changing the battery in the hand set. If you have been experiencing lessend battery life " talk time" this can cause buzzing as some phones loose transmit and recieve strength. Always consider the price of a new phone compared to the parts for an old one which may have a few other defects.
Yea this type of happen with most of DSL users! This is due to weak signal telephone line. You should only have 1 phone and 1 internet connection. You should remove all other telephones in the home. Then it will work fine. If you only have 1 phone then you must call the phone service person who will check that status of your wire. Might be your wire is old so it creates a problem. Then replace it the you'r done.
Lots of different devices may be interfering with the transmit side of your phone. In today's world of heavy radio frequency usage by consumer devices it is hard to know exactly what may be interfering with your cordless phone. Even some cell phones could be causing the interference. The 6.0 gig phones do not have that problem.
