Hello,

Have you try to reset it? If no, Just try to reset it to factory settings.
Remove the AC Adapter from the AC power (either at the base or at the wall outlet) and immediately connect it again. Remove battery from the handset and immediately replace it. Place the handset back into the charger for about 5 seconds. That should reset the phone and put the phone on default and should fix the problem..

Take care.

Hello

First of all please check your phone ti ensure that the ringer is not turned off.

Press "Prog" on the handset.

Press the arrow button beneath the phone's display until you reach "Ringer," then press "Select."

Press the arrow button until you reach "Ringer On," then press "OK." The phone should beep to confirm your selection.

Check the side of your phone for a ringer switch,flip it to the other side and check to see if the phone rings.

If the phone still doesnt ring then the ringer of your phone is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Try taking the battery of each unit off and then wait for like 5 minutes then return back and power the phones on again.

How do I set ring tone on base unit to match handset


You didn't state the brand and model of your phone, but my vTech and Uniden phones only have ONE RING TONE on the base, and it can only be turned ON or OFF (and the volume is variable on the vTech).

No ring


This is more likely a faulty socket, make sure it has a master socket with a capacitor in it

My vtech digital 6.0 cordless phone says not registered but when someone calles the base of the phone still rings and people are able to leave messages but the actual phone isnt ringing, how can i fix it?


The base and the handset are not communicating. To have them do so, you need to "register" the handset with the base. Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech DECT 6.0 phone I can't tell you how to do that. I can suggest you enter the model number into the search box here to download a copy of the manual. The manual will give you instructions on how to register the handset.

My phone won't stop ringing when someone calls. it has a steady ring and it rings after you hang up. the caller id won't pickup who is calling. how do i fix it?


Try to reset the telephone base by unplugging the unit's electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds and plug it back in again. Allow up to one minute for the handset and the telephone base to synchronize.

When someone calls my phone rings 4 times then


You must turn off your internal answering machine. There should be an on and off button somewhere on the main base.
