Panasonic Toughbook 51 modem error no dail tone

Modem does not give dail tones when call out. Does not connect. Drivers look ok on Device manager. No conflicts on ports, setup as Com3, Device Manager on comm ports states com1 & com2 in use. Why can't I get a dail tone.

    I am out of town and do not have the system restore disks. I do not have any cds to burn what I have either. PC runs if I can fine a wireless site but I don't have anything but a phone jack in which to dail out. Modem diagnostics say successful but I hear no sounds from modem. Any suggestions?

  • crivera907 May 20, 2008

    phone line is working and cable is new. Downloaded drivers from panasonic but no improvement. no dail tone. Is there any way that I can check the modem operation in hyperterminal? I am begining to believe that the modem is zapped.

System restores do not erase any data or files that you have created and to get to it is from start>control panel>performance and maintenance>system restore
It saves all documents and files and the restore is completely reversible if it needs to be reversed

This is probably the easiest option to try especially since everything seems to be running fine.

you can also try first going into Hyperterm and typing ATZ and pressing "enter" which should reset the modem.

    alright so you tried the hyperterminal reset?



    How about a hard reset of the pc, unplug and remove the batteries and see if it resets the modem

    The cheapest thing to do if you still can't get it working, is to just buy another internal modem

I would recommend you uninstall the device and get the newest drivers available from panasonic or the modem manifacturer.

And reinstall it.

HI,

The problem can be internally.But you can try a system restore first.But make sure you take a backup and then do this.Because it will erase all the data.

To do a sys. restore go to START>ALL ACCESSORIES>PROGRAMS>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE

Goodluck.

The Agere systems HDA modem is a 56kbps modem typically found on laptops. View it in device manager.

Should be listed there. See if there is an exclamation mark next to it.

Hi:
I have'nt used computer modems to fax in a long time, but will try to help, If you can edit the command line enter ATDT this command means Attention Dial Tone. Enter this command to see if you hear a Dial tone. I also suggest you try taking out the modem to reset it. let windows load without the modem in the computer then shut down windows compeletly and reinstall the modem so windows can reinstall the drivers for the hardware, if you have upgraded windows to a different version since you last faxed, then it would be wise to look for updated drivers.

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Modem problem


Disconnect the phone line from the modem and connect a normal phone to this phone line. Lift the handset and check it you have a dial tone and see if you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone then there is a fault with the phone line and it needs to be repaired before you can use your modem.

Modem Casn't Get A dile tone


If you are sure your modem drivers are installed (no YELLOW QUESTION MARKS when you access the device manager), try this;

My Computer/Right Click/Properties/Left Click/click Hardware tab/click Device Manager Tab/click Modem/go to properties/click TEST MODEM---this procedure should tell you that the modem PASSED or FAILED.

If the modem FAILED, it is defective and will need to be replaced.

Need to reset or erase admin password


There are Linux password removal programs on the Internet. It is designed to remove passwords on NT, Win 2K and XP.
You copy the program to a CD and boot up from this CD. It allows you to reset or remove the users and administrator passwords.
Google search for these programs "password recover" There is another solution. You can reinstall windows and this will give you a clean computer and possibly better performance without the accumulated junk/rubbish. Don't forget to get/download all the device drivers (eg. video, audio, modem,NIC etc.) before you start.
