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?

Vtech model 2656 caller id is not working. How can I fix this?


Hello,

Found this on the VTECH support site regarding your model:

Tip 1 of 1
spacer.gif
Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information.

In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both you and your caller’s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems.

If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause caller ID disruption, static, noise and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.

In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.

Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller’s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received.

In addition if you would like to contact them or get more info on your phone, then use this link:

Intermittent Sync and you: What does it mean?


Intermittent sync is the signal from your DSL, Cable, or Fiber service provider's Central Office (CO) to you losing connection every now and then. Now, with DSL, this also includes low bit rate (where the modem throttles the connection to try and maintain the connection), intermittent route (you can't get online if there is no signal!), and slow throughput/ packet loss. <br /><br />With Fiber, it can mean a damaged fiber optic cable, or potential area outage. <br /><br />Cable does not usually experience low bit rate/ intermittent sync like DSL, however it does have some similarities since Cable does run (at least a portion of the cable!) on copper cabling. <br /><br />Intermittent Sync can be an area issue, however usually area issues are no sync or no route- not the intermittent problems<br /><br />Now, an intermittent issue is hands-down the most annoying of connectivity problems since sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. <br /><br />How do you troubleshoot intermittent sync? <br /><br />Depending on your connection type, you may need to isolate the connection. What this means for DSL is if you have a phone, a fax, and a credit card machine on the same telephone line, you need to see if the intermittent issue clears with those devices off the line. Other factors for DSL intermittent sync is distance from the CO, age of the modem, issues on the line, and problems within the CO<br /><br />If you have noise on the line- it could either be the modem or something within the cabling or CO. <br /><br />With Cable, isolation is not so much of an issue- although they may ask you to remove the cable boxes temporarily till they can verify the issue is not interference from a defective cable box<br /><br />Fiber (FIOS) is unique that intermittent sync is not really caused by issues w/ the wiring of the building- report to technical support immediately if you have intermittent connection issues with Fiber.<br /><br />All of the above issues need you to contact tech support when you have time to do basic troubleshooting steps. However some legwork can make this process easier.<br /><br />Write down when it goes down- if there is a pattern to when it goes down, it can help narrow down WHY the problem is occurring. For instance, a person had service go down after 9am every day and when it was raining. The issue was caused by construction breaking the underground cable casing- and after the sprinklers ran at 9am sharp- the water would get into the casing and short the person's connection! <br /><br />A log of what happens with the problem not only helps you- it helps you help the technician! If you can pick up on the pattern- it narrows the possibilities of what's causing the issue. Any way of narrowing down the problem means you will have your service restored that much faster.<br /><br />If it requires multiple repairs- that log will also help in narrowing down what's left<br /><br />For packet loss/intermittent route- record what sites have the issue and when. Again, the pattern helps troubleshoot the problem.<br /><br />Do not demand for a technician at the location- often the problem could be in the CO- sending a tech only delays getting to the right spot to fix the problem<br /><br />If your connection goes down- the MOST important thing to do: Report it. With intermittent issues, the more documentation, the better. <br />

Phone line won't hang up


I would check the DSL filters. Your phone should not interfere with the DSL. Make sure there is a filter on any line going into your phones. If there is a filter replace it and see if that works. Also, check other equipment on the line, fax, computer, credit card machine. They will need filters from the DSL too. Remove these other devices and check the line for the problem then add them back one at a time.

How do you receive fax on hp officejet 4110



Do you have any Digital Answering Machines in the house?
or is it a dedicated line?
anyway heres the link for the 3 digit error codes document, its a public document that can be found by searching www.hp.com using this Article #: bpu02549 or buu02549
anyway as you can see 388 result/solution is the following...

Problem: Unable to complete the connection.
Solution: *Reattempt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

Now this means that one or both fax machines can have a problem. So lets isolate the problem.

Place a regular phone into the wall jack that the OJ 4110, if there is a static sound then its the phone line that is having the problem. if there is no static continue on...*Note if you have a DSL Internet service you NEED a filter for the fax*
..
What this is most commonly caused by is Bad line conditions which can occur in some different ways.
1) If there has been recently a Thunder Storm the electrostatic discharges interupt phone signals.
2) Recent power line downage
3) Recent Phone line downage
4) The phone company upgrading the lines

But basically something is BLOCKING the faxes from hearing each other. That is why you get this error code.
You can call your phone company to run a line trace. The reason you want to do this is so that you can eliminate the possibly of Static, Yes there are differnt types of it;
1) the normal static that you and me can hear
2) the SuperSonic Static, AKA Static in the Higher Frequency Ranges, where your DSL internet connection is. the Fax will pick up on those Higher frequency ranges, and it will cause problems. So put a DSL Filter on the Fax it wont hurt, and most of the times it helps alot.
Again Make sure ECM is disabled.
other than that, try unplugging all devices on the phone system an try...
i think there is alot fo information, i cant think of anything else...
Hope that helps

2wire 2700HG-B Dsl light blinks green than turns turns red, keeps repeating. does not connect.


If your DSL light goes green solid to red check to make sure all your phones are filtered. Make sure your not filtering your 2Wire.

Wired router keeps cutting both computers off


Check you wall plug power supply, they get bad not long after they are put to service. Find a replacement power supply with preferably higher current rating and your problem goes away.

GE Dect 6.0 Cordless - Loud Static


question is are you running a pc and router/ modem on the same land line
if so you will need the line filters to the phone base
the computer data is transferred by the same land line and there is every possibility that the different frequencies is what is causing the static
reference from a uniden trouble shooter ( will be common as the phones use the same medium)
lots of noise or static on the line === possible solutions --check for interference from appliances ( microwave , tv etc ) or wireless devices ( baby monitors wifi equipment etc)
move the handset base away from the source
if you have any device that uses the phone line , add a DSL or telephone line filter to the system

it is possible from the times you state that the interference could be coming form a neighbour or further down the line so the filter may be the option
available from phone shops or places like JAYCAR

The cordless phones have a button to change the channels that are within the radio freq. range. I would change the channels until you get a clear/static free call.
