You need to press the left hand arrow at the top with the R above it until it has Tone or T. It has gone onto 'Pulse', mine did the same. The helpline number is 0845 226 5657. They are very helpful. You need the model number which is under the main console. Hope this is helpful and judging by the date, not too late!!

Hi I have a vtech Hannah Montana Cordless phone and it won't ring. It has a slash through the ringer bell on the screen. I've tried the ringer settings taking the battery out and the tone and...


These can be the only things that are causing your problems:

Ringer mute
You can mute the ringer temporarily when the telephone is ringing.
Press OFF/CLEAR or MUTE to temporarily silence the ringer. The next call will ring normally.

Ringer volume
You can change the handset ringer volume to a comfortable level. The ringer can also be turned off so the telephone does not ring when there are incoming calls.
To adjust the ringer volume:
Press MENU/SELECT to display the menu when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select >RINGER VOLUME, then press MENU/SELECT.
Press or to adjust the volume. A sample of each volume level will be played as you adjust it.
Press MENU/SELECT to save your selection. You will hear a confirmation tone.


Make sure the ringer is on (page 8).
Make sure the telephone line cord and power adapter are plugged in properly (page 2).
The handset may be too far from the telephone base. Move it closer to the telephone base.
There may be too many extension phones on the telephone line to allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Try unplugging some of them.
If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring or local service. Contact the local telephone company (charges may apply).
Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless telephone. Try installing your telephone as far away as possible from the following electronic devices: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cellular telephones, digital telephones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, VCRs, personal computers, kitchen appliances, and other cordless telephones.
Test a working telephone at the telephone wall jack. If another telephone has the same problem, the problem is in the telephone wall jack. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
The telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new telephone line cord.
Wait for the handset to synchronize with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

The tone on my 2 portable DECT 6.0 phones was somehow changed- now every time I dial, I get the old rotary sound and I can not access any menu options. Help, I use my phone for work and need it fixed! ...


Your phone is somehow set to pulse dialling and you need to change it to tone. Instructions are given below.

Of course if you can't select menu options this will not work so please explain why the menu options are not available - what happens when you select the menu softkey?

Dial mode
The dial mode is preset to tone. If you do not have touch tone service, you need to change the setting to pulse.
To change the setting:
Press the MENU softkey when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select SETTINGS, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to select Dial mode, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to choose Tone or Pulse. Press the SET softkey to save, or press the BACK softkey to exit to the previous menu.

    I have a Emerson DECT 6.0 with 3 head sets and i cant get the dial tone back from pulse.


    It was easy for my Emerson Dect 6.0 to be switched either rotary / pulse by just pressing the "FLASH" button for 3 seconds until it beeped. Problem solved.

    Or if that doesn't work, you have to:

    Tone/Pulse
    You can switch the dial mode. In most situations the TONE option should be selected.

    • Press the MENU button. Select BASE using <FLASH - or - CID> and press the MENU button again.

    • Using <FLASH - or - CID> select DIAL MODE and press the MENU button.

    • Using <FLASH - or - CID> select TONE or PULSE and press the MENU button.

    OR

    Press and HOLD the "<FLASH" button for approximately 3 seconds. T (Tone) or P (Pulse) appears in the display.

    Phone went from touch tone to pulse. . .


    Hello,

    Read the manual to reconfigure that option. (Look for Setup button on the phone) I can't guess what model you have. On older phones one could find a switch on the the phone to flip between Tone and Pulse.

    Sorry I could not be of much help.

    Same frustrating issue


    press "menu", "global setup", "dial mode", choose "pulse".
    I dont know why it works, but it does!

    the tiny indent under the "DECT 6.0" decal is the microphone- check to clean any crumbs/gunk from that crevice.

    Can't change to pulse dialing


    The Vetech phone will only support tone dialing. It does have a menu option that turns tone on or off but it still will not allow pulse dialing. I had to change the phone service from pulse dialing to tone dialing to get the phones to work. As it turned out, the phone company no longer charges extra for the tone service.

    GE 5.8 ghz cordless phone


    Get another telephone and connect the telephone cord from your cordless phone to it. If it works, then you know the problem is with your GE cordless phone. If it doesn't, try replacing the telephone cord. If still no good, call your telephone company.
