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.

It has a buzzing sound when I turn talk on.


normally when the buzz is on the phone it can be that your phone lines are in water and the electricity running through the lines create the buzz
call your service provider and get a service call

How do i fix my phone, it rings, but i cannot dial out and there is lots of static and buzz when i pick up the phone


Do you have other phones on the same line?
Are they clear or do they have the static. If it is a telephone company old copper line and it happens on all phones it maybe a Telco problem.

I recently switched to the comcast phone service from ATT. I have a structured wire set up. I also kept an ATT land line so I'd have a telco line in an emergency--like an earthquake. On every phone in the...


Assuming you have 2 line phones, what happens if you swap lines? If your structured wiring is the 568B standard, which is the most typical, the second line must be punched down to the white/green pair instead of the orange/white pair for 568A wiring. It sounds like the second line may be daisy chained in the panel so you have to see how it's wired and troubleshoot from there. Sometimes a pair is connected to a power supply to provide power for a phone or light but that's not typical any more. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you have more info or photos of the panel and jacks I'd be happy to help further.

The phone has a buzz on it and it is not the line it's the phone att945


Buzz may be from many different sources.

First, is there DSL on this line? Make sure you have a filter on the line going to the phone or plug your phone into the jack coming out of the DSL modem.

Next, remove any other device from the line and check the buzz. Sometimes a fax machine, computer or credit card machine will create noise on the line.

Then check the connections in the wall, any splitter and in the phone. Make sure the wires are straight before you plug in the phone cord.

If that does not help, take a regular phone and plug each wire into that phone and listen for the buzz, it may be a pinched wire.

Or, you may have a wire running past something that has a large electrical current. Try moving the wires away from a television, florescent light, etc.

Lastly, these phones have a cable length maximum. If you have too much cable in the office they will act as an antenna and this will add buzz to the line.

Constant Buzzing sound on recipients end


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!!

No dial tone, just buzzing noise - should be 2 line phone, 1 jack


What you need is a dsl filter since you are working off a splitter. You can usually get these for free from your phone company.

Buzzing tone. Can barely hear caller's voice because of the buzz


Two things to look at:

First, check the base station isn't too close to some interfering item of electronic equipment - try moving it to see if the problem diminishes.

Second, unplug the cordless phone and put a traditional corded phone in instead (if you don't have one lying around, it would be a wise investment to get one, otherwise you'll be without a phone service if your power goes out). If the buzz is still there, the problem lies with your line rather than with the phone (and that's the TelCo's problem, not yours).

We have a number of phones in the house....none works. When the phone is picked up all you get is a buzzing sound


This could be any number of things here are a few ideas to help isolate the problem:
  1. Disconnect all phones from the wall jacks
  2. Connect a phone to each wall jack, one at a time and test. This will help you determine if one of the all jacks is bad. Use the same phone for testing each jack. If you have a phone that does not require AC power, use that phone to test. If the same phone works at every wall jack, one of your phones is bad. You can now test each phone alone until you find the bad phone.
  3. If after testing each wall jack, you still have buzzing on the line you will need to contact the telephone company to test the line coming into the house or apartment.
  4. If you live in a house and can access the "box" where the phone lines enter the house, there is usually a jack where you can plug the test phone into and check the lines BEFORE they enter your home.
  5. If you test at the entry box and your phone works, you have a problem with the wires in your home. If you still have the buzzing, it is probably a telephone company problem
Good Luck!

Home Phone Line Buzzing


This phenomenon is the phone lines and phone instrument rectifying the RF signal from your cell phone as it communicates periodically with the cell sites. The energy is rectified (turned into voltage) by the phone lines and appears as a buzzing pulsing noice in the home phone. This will trash a fax compeltely. There is NO solution except to thrn of the cell phone or orient it away from phones and phone lines sufficiently to stop the interaction. You could put hte phone in a RF proof bag (metalized film) which would then prevent it from receiving an incoming cell call. Either way, you lose some usability of either home or cell phone for the duration of the issue.
