Question about NorStar M7310 Phone

1 Answer

Vintage phones cannot dial out

I’ve decided to stop using cordless phones (don't ask why) and have plugged in a variety of vintage (meaning 80’s) push button telephones.  I get a dial tone and answering/talking works fine.  The problem is that I hear no tone when I push the buttons: hence I cannot dial out.  (Cordless phones work fine.)


Is this a problem on my end?  or one with my provider (AT&T)?
After making a call, before the call ended, all of the buttons on the phone quit working - the phone still rings, and can be answered, but hold, release, etc. are unresponsive.

Any standard phone should work, even phones made in 1800's should still work on a standard phone line.

I'm not sure what phone you have. The one listed in the question "M7310" is a business system phone and will ONLY work on the Nortel business phone system.

If you have standard home phones, my only suggestion (using the information supplied) is to check if the Tone/Pulse switch is set to tone... even though both should work.

Do you have phone service through a cable line?

PROBLEM WITH THE BASE GIGASET A120


Thank you for these instructions. I have Siemens geigaset A120 with three handsets and one of the handsets stopped working about a year ago and my previous tries att registering it at the base station had failed and I was about to give up and buy a new set for 80 Euro, but I decided to give i one more try at registering and it worked the third time around. So do not give up. When one your hand sets stops working (no dial tone and can not call from it) try re registering as described above.

The "+" is simply punctuation, used to make the country code stand out. You don't dial it, just as you don't dial the "-" in a local number.

You could plug your non-cordless phone into suspicious phone jack to see if you have dial tone-if you dont have dial tone, the line maynot be connected and you should open the jack to see if there is more than 1 cable attached. If there is more than 1 cable attached and you dont have dial tone at other end of cable the cable might be cut or shorted somewhere inbetween. You can test continuity by tying 2 wires together and test with a multimeter on resistance to see if it is open circuit or maybe even short circuit. To test for short circuit, untie the cables and you should not get a reading. If you do have dial tone when you plug in non-cordless phone the distance might be to far for receiver to pick it up(ie..greater than 10 metres). I hope this has been helpful.

Cordless phone GE model 2-9635 Instructions to program speed dial


After a lot of research, I have found that GE has handed the phones and their manuals down to a company called "ThomsonTM" And if you come across any of problems for this phone in the future, I'll give you their phone number so you can still get help, at: 1-800-447-1700

Otherwise for help right now for the speed dial issue, I could only find directions that were of general use of multiple GE Cordless Phones, so it's worth a shot if you've got the time, otherwise, I suggest calling the number above.

Here is goes:

1.)Raise the phones reciever, or push the "Power/On" button.

2.)Press the "Store" button.

3.)Press the number 0 through 9 or a quick dial letter A, B, C,... to assign, then press the "Store" Button again to confirm the entry.

4.)Enter the number you want to assign the speed dials memory location, and press "Store".

5.)If your GE Phone prompts you to enter a Contact Name, use the keypad to enter it. Press the "Skip" button to enter a space, and the "Store" button to confirm your entry once again.

Once again, this is just a generalized GE Cordless phone guide, and may not be exact to your phone, in which I further suggest calling the electronic product's helpline by
ThomsonTM at:
1-800-447-1700 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting

Hope this helps!

My panasonic cordless phone model # KX-TG2258S the handset works but when you dial or talk or even just pick up the phone you don't hear any noise at all. not dial tone but it does call out. you just...


Do you even hear white noise? If not, it sounds like your phone's speakers may be broken, or it has water damage. If your landline is connected to more phones, ask yourself these questions:

Do all of the phones have this problem? If so, it's a problem with your connection, not the speaker.

Is there a volume button anywhere on the phone or the base? Try turning it up.

Do my phones make a "beep" noise when i push the buttons? If not, did they used to? If they don't, then it's likely that the speaker is no longer working properly.

You may need to contact panasonic and see if they will replace it for you.

Hope this helped! Please rate my solution!
