I have the same problem...

Human, if you'll notice at the top of the page, this is a cordless phone forum, not a cellphone area.

My phones are part of an AT&T SL85885 system.

I have found that if you unplug all your phones, take the battery out of the handset, and let them sit for about 15 minutes, this will solve the problem. It does not, however, fix the problem permanantly. It will probably occur again, but at least you can use them again.

Now it is saying check tel line


There's some problem with the phone's ability to detect a dial tone. Check that the phone's base is connected to your home's AC power and the telephone cord is securely connected at the phone base and wall jack. If still not working, continue checking by disconnecting the cord from the base and connecting a different working phone. If the phone does not work while connected to this cord - there's a problem with the cord. Try replacing the cord between the jack and phone. If it still won't work - you may need to contact your telephone company's repair service to get it fixed. Good luck!

DOES THIS PHONE WORK WITHOUT ELECTRICITY?


The KX-T7735 is a proprietary digital phone that only works when connected to a Panasonic telephone system through a 4 wire line cord. It does not need an ac power connection to operate, it gets its power through the line cord when connected to a Panasonic phone system. This phone will not work if connected directly to an outside line.

Phone isn't working. Message flashing says "Waiting for synch"


This happens on the older software levels of the Mitel phone systems when the phone type programmed does not match the phone type connected. Example: if the phone system programming has a 4015 phone type for that port and you connect a 4025 phone you will get this result. Another cause could be the port you are connected to is analog(used for analog devices such as fax, credit card, modem, or standard single line phone) instead of digital; you would get this result even on the latest software levels.

Assuming that this is the same phone that has been at this location and was working previously, try a different working 4025 phone at this location. If the different phone works, then the problem is in the phone and needs to be sent for repair. If the different phone doesn't work, change the line cord to eliminate possible bad line cord. If the phone still does not work, the problem could be in the outlet, building wiring or in the telephone system. At this point you likely need to call a service technician to track where the problem is.

I would like connect kx-t7730 to tda100 .can I connect it ?


Yes. However, it will only work if you have the 8-port hybrid card(TDA0170) installed. Besides costing a lot more money(the card, not the phone) the phone uses 4x the power of a 76xx or DT series phone and you only get 12 lousy working buttons.

I don't get a dial tone when I pick up the phone both the base and the extention both are dead but I have a fax machine also on another line and it works ok


to test the phone system. unplug the phones that are not working from the telephone jack. Install a phone on that phone jack that you know works (an old one or a cheap new phone). If the new phone works on the phone line in question, then your cordless phones are the problem and not the house phone line. If you plug the known working phone into the wall and it now does not work, then you have a problem with the wall outlet or the connection to the house. If it is a phone line or house connection problem, call your phone company. If it is your cordless unit, try them at a different phone outlet or at some other house to see if they work anywhere.

Phones stopped working. They only read


I'm not familar with the Vtech but I would suspect that all 4 units work off of the answering machine base. It sounds like it is seeing a dial tone.
Take a working phones like the wall phone, if it is easily removed, and use a known good connecting cable between the good wall phone and the jack that the Vtech is plugged into.
If that works, take the connecting cable loose and replace it with the Vtech connecting cable. If that works check the jack on the Vtech for crossed wire. If non found, connect it to the jack the wall phone was plugged into. If this doesn't provide satisfaction, let me know exactly what you did and what happened and we will go from there.

No ring


Seems like alot of discussion around on getting phones to ring.

I think the interesting scenario here is when people want to be able to connect the MJ to house wiring to have phones connected remotely work normally (call/ring).

First, it is important to have phones which have REN's be as small as possible. I started with MJ connected to my home wiring (ie connect MJ to a wall phone socket hoping to have a phone elsewhere in the house work normally). I was using a TRU8885 with 2handsets (is AC powered) - the REN on this phone is a paltry .08 . I could call normally, but not get a ring.

I had an old computer with USB ver 1.0, so I first got a cheap USB 2.0 card which I installed which did not fix the problem - it is reasonable to assume these cards have sufficient power.

I tested the phone directly attached to the MJ (4ft phone cable) and it worked. I tested likewise with a 20ft cable and it worked. I reconnected to my house network and it did not work with the phone attached to phone jack at my desk. icon_sad.gif

I traced the lines in my basement (I was already disconnected from outside landline connection) contemplating eliminating unnecessary wiring and lo and behold I discovered in a corner of my basement that an old bell-ringer phone was connected to my house network! When I disconnected this phone (and the obvious voltage load associated with it), my phone rang perfectly.

Here's my conclusion:
1. use a phone with lowest possible REN (less than 1 certainly, closer to .1 desireable).
2. don't worry about powered hubs if already connected to computer's USB since it is likely sufficiently powered.
3. don't get into power boosting phone systems (see #1)
4. eliminate high-REN other devices from phone network
5. run a test of of phone direct connected to MJ - if this doesn't work, likely your phone is not AC powered or is too high a REN.

Connecting............


I checked the official vtechphones.com website - they said - unplug the base for 15 secs .. re-seat the battery in the phones - check the power to all bases and once checked wait for 1 min. - I did all this and my phones are currently working again .. if you are still having a problem - you may need a new battery for your phone ..
