Question about Panasonic KX-TG1033S Cordless Phone
I have these phones at home connected to a vonage box and the local cable company sells their own version so they are not very helpful to say the least and I've heard they actually choke the signal.
static on these phones will come from a few sources. They will be internal ie a damaged phone, bad or low batteries or the base station or the antenna on the base. You can also get this from a poor Internet connection or when the net is slow. As an example on our 'high' speed cable modem the voip or vonage box should connect and the delay should be no longer than 50ms that is 50/1000's of a second. Any more and you get static on both ends of the conversation.
First thing I would check is to see if it is a handset that is causing this. So what you do is remove the battery out of all of the hand sets and then plug one in, check for the static. Then take the batteries back out. repeat for each. that will tell you if the problem is one of the handsets. Next thing is to relocate the base station and check the cables and connections carefully. These phones are pretty good about ignoring electrical interference from microwaves or wifi's. However is the antenna on the base is close to a strong electrical signal source it may still get noisy. The base should be away from any wiring or other electrical devices, also make sure there isn't metal in the walls close by ie ductwork or kitchen back splashes and so on.
Next you need to contact your isp and get them to check your connection for both speed and noise. You can have a fast connection but even as little as 1-3% noise can cut that speed by more than half.
When our phones have been bad the isp/cable was the problem.

Usually statis in phones are caused by two things either an improper connection or interference from other transmission device. Although a thrid cause can be identified as the phone speaker making partial contact although this is very unlikely.
If you have other devices around phone which emmitts radio waves try relocating phone away from them to avoid interference on phone.
If not this, then try tracing the cables which are used in connecting the phone as if there is an impartial contact or a bridge between the cables you could have static problems on the phone. Although it is advisable to get an expert to check the cables as their connection can be a bit tricky. If after this the problem persists then call your cable company.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
