"handset. No line"

I just bought this phone and for the first few weeks it has worked fine. Now it has a message on the screen saying "Handset No Line". Calls can come in but I can't get a line out. I get a rapid beeping.

    Hi there,

    I have the same problem. The line into the house is fine, I tried the phone in different houses and it seem to be working fine. We recently moved and in our old house we got "handset no line". After we moved the phone was working for about one week and now we got "handset no line" here as well.

    The electricity was turned off in the house and, since it's been turned back on, the phone says ' connecting' and has no dial tone.

    we have had these phones for over a year and have worked great, now all of a sudden we are getting the "handset. No line" and both phones do not work.

    also the call waiting number is not showing up on the phone when someone calls in while we are on the other line.

    'no line' for outgoing calls.   everything works for incoming!   
    no  recent electrical outages & dsl filters are on all electric outlets.  
     what now?

    We had the same problem, we replaced the batteries in our phones and then got the "no Line" problem. We unplugged the phone and waited a minute and it started working again. Hopefully we won't have to do it everyday. Thanks for the advice!

Unplugging the phone will only fix the problem temporary!
Can anyone fix it for good? I am fed up of unplugging it every day.
No line... no line no line!
Stupid phone!

I have internet over the phone line as well so I seem to have forgot that all the phones need to have DSL filters on them, once that was done my phone was working like new again

Not sure. Try spinning the phone on a potter's wheel for ten to 15 minutes. That should free up some calls.

I have a Bush Atmos telephone and answer machine. It's only about 2 years old, however the handset seems to have lost contact with the base as I can no longer get a dialling tone and cannot answer...

first thing you need to check is the battery as it seems like you have lost charge and it is not recharging and you can order these batterys on line not to exspensive so just undo the back cover and you should see the battery and if you have another handset then take the battery out of that to see if the handset is working fine before ordering a battery

Handset can't find base.

I just got a 3rd handset for the same phone system and were having the same error message,,, the at&t help line does not know what it is,.,. We returned it once and got another one because of the same problems, and were still having it.. AT & T help line said to return it again and try another one .. then he actually said to replace the whole phone system .. thats easier said than done! we paid 199 plus tax on the system and then another 81.00 for the third handset!

GE dect 6.0 cordless phone bought at walmart

We had the same problem.

"Our phones worked fine for two weeks but now you can not dial out
and when someone calls us they can't hear we say. The line still works
fine with our old phone1.gif."

To fix the problem, I simply unplugged the base AC plug from the outlet, waited about 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. Both handsets said searching on the display and then handset names returned to the display as originally programmed. The phones returned to operation as normal.
