Question about AT&T ATT-992 Corded Phone

Open Question

The phone display flashes "Power failure" and there is no dial tone, but various lights light up, and, when disconnected, the phone makes random beeps and occasionally rings (I supposed I'm accidentally touching something). I have a new battery and have checked the cords.

SOURCE: "searching" message even when handset on the base

Found the following in AT&Ts FAQs for your phone, I'll leave only what might be relevant: # Charge the handset for 12 hours. After the first charge, the battery will quick charge in only 8 hours. Re-cradle the handset nightly for recharging. The battery will not overcharge. # Connect telephone line from base to unit to modular telephone jack. If cord is already plugged in, unplug and reconnect at both ends. Also, you may want to try another cord from a working telephone. See the owner's manual under "Connecting to Phone Line." (you can get the manual here on the product page in case you lost it) # Try a working phone at the jack. If another phone has the same problem in that jack, the phone jack is defective. Good luck, hope you work it out

SOURCE: PHONE JUST A DIAL TONE?

Make sure your phone is in Tone and not Pulse dialing. To change it for your phone, just look in your manual. If you don't have one, I have included a link for you to d/l it.

SOURCE: phone won't connect

I had the same problem. I unplugged the base unit for several minutes. When I plugged it back in, the base unit reset itself and the handsets reset themselves to the base unit. You will have to reset the clock and any other features you use. My phone is a model E5908. Hope this works for you. Goos luck.

SOURCE: No dial tone

It seems you can receive the calls and dial the numbers, by clicking hand free key you will hear the tone. Regarding answering machine I wonder you activate it or not for activating the machine just click the On/Off key on the base or from the main menu on the hand set choose Voice Mail section then activate Answering Machine, in this section you have other options such as Ring Delay (for choosing the delay before Ans.Mach. pick up the phone), Announcements (playing and recording announcements) and Massage Length.

SOURCE: Dial Tone but won't call out.

The problem was the main phone line not the phone itself

Uniden phone light WON'T flash red light when I have pulsing dial tone VM messages.


The pulsing dial tone usually indicates a message on the service provider's server, not on your phone. Contact your provider to find the procedure to access these messages.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?


I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

My intercom button flashed red to green. When I push a line button, I get a two-tone beep but no dial tone. I changed the internal 9 v battery. I unplugged the phone and waited, then plugged it back in....


Each telephone must be connected to line 1 and line 2 for
proper operation. The remaining lines 3 and 4 may — or may not —
be connected to each station as you desire. First plug in the battery, then the phone lines (1 & 2 are mandatory), and third the power cord. If your intercome LED is blinking red and green, then press: STORE IN, followed by "INTERCOM" followed by a free intercom# (i.e., any of the memory buttons 1 through 16 not already assigned to another telephone set). Then wait for the phone to go through its initiation sequence during which it searches each of the four possible lines. After that concludes, you should get dial tone on your active lines. :-) Marco

Voice mail


Do your Dial tone sound different. Your phone listens to the dial tone. if you have a new voice mail your dial tone changes.and your phone does the flashy thing accordingly. Contact your phone company.

No Dial tone


Have you had an electric storm or power failure? A power surge can cause no dial tone also. It can be the main PCB in the machine or NCU PCB(board for phone cord). Unplug the machine from the wall, put your finger on the menu key first, plug the machine while holding the menu key, the light will flash and display will say maintenance. Press number 82, if there is a DF error the main board will need to replaced. The main board is the brain of the machine and is one of the most expensive parts of the unit. It is hard to distinguish if it is the modem or the main board on this unit that is causing the unit not to have a dial tone. It may be better to take it to a service center.
