Look for an internal setting that disables the ringer. This can be a ***** because most of us don't bother to customize phones like this and we never keep the manuals.
Check the manufacturer's web site for instructions or a manual.
There could be an external control to turn it down or off. The old 500 phone (black, rotary dial) had a metal dial you could spin to turn down the ringer.
You can always check a residential line by connecting to the demarc where the telco wires end and yours begin. Connect there and call in with your cell phone.If you get through, there but not using house wiring the fault is in wiring you own and you must pay to fix it. Don;t forget to reconnect the house when you are done.
The most common cause of static on the line in your home is a bad or loose wire. If all your phones are experiencing the static, it would indicate that the bad wiring is before the first phone. Check the network interface device (NID) on the outside of your home first. If you are able you could bring one of your phone outside and listen to the static as you move wires around inside the NID. Make sure they are all tight and no bare wires are touching or shorting. If you don't find the problem there check as much wiring as you can get to. If you move or affect the problem you should be able to hear it in a handset. Then check all of the phone cords especially handset cords and phone cords on the floor.
I hope this helps you solve the problem. Have a wonderfull day
You should not have to do anything to make the base find the phone line as long as it's plugged into a working phone jack and the AC power is on.
Have you tested the phone jack where you are connecting the base to be sure it's working? You can check with a simple, basic corded type phone. (You should have one of these on hand anyway, in case your power goes out. Without AC power, cordless phones won't work since their base unit would be off. The basic corded phone gets its power from the phone line so it will keep going. It's a good thing to have.) Plug the phone in and see if you have dialtone at the jack. You don't know what kind of phones the former residents had and how their jacks were wired. The one you're using may have been set up on a second line, for example.
If you don't find dialtone at the jack, you can try others and move the base unit as necessary, or see about having the wiring corrected. The model number of your phone is a UK version, and I don't know the rules regarding who can do telephone wiring there. Here in the US you can do the work yourself, hire a contractor, or contact the telephone service provider.
If you find the jack is working, something may have happened to the cordless base unit during the move. Try another cord; maybe the one you're using was damaged. Then your remaining option is to see about servicing or replacing the phone if it's still not working.
Double Check that all handsets are registered, and make sure that you don't have to many phones connected to the jacks throughout your home. If all fail, very slowly, make sure the phone is on speaker, and slowly move the telephone port into the jack SLOWLY like slower than slow motion. If you here clicking, keep pushing it in slowly until you here a dial tone. I know this has happened to me before.
Best of luck,
It looks like it's been solved by purchasing a new 1.8GHz phone- the new one seems to be having no problems. The retailer shop man said they often hear of this type of problem and recommend the 1.8GHZ models -- wish they'd told us that before we bought the previous one!!!
This indicates a disconnection of service or a cross in the wiring.
Have you done or had done any wiring changes?
Have you move anything around or disconnected anything recently?
Something has changed to get a USB error. Unless you have been disconnected for non-payment.
Hope this helps.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to get them to play nice together. Your phone is a 2.4GHz phone, which is the same frequency that WiFi runs on. This will be the case with any 2.4GHz phone you use, regardless of brand.
Your only real options are to replace the phone with either an older technology 900MHz phone, or a newer technology 5.8GHz phone. Either solution will work.
