RCA two-line speakerphone, model 25204

I've bought several of these phones. Each time, they work for a while and then end up failing - I don't get either line to work. Usually it's after a thunderstorm or power outage, but the last time it happened after only a week and there was no apparent reason. I've replaced batteries, plugged it into different outlets -- once it dies there seems to be no bringing it back. Have you heard from others about this problem? Is there a solution?

    I was in the middle of a call and suddenly lost all sound using the handset and then trying the speaker. Neither produced any sound. No dial tone, yet when I call the number from another phone the correct phone line lights up, but there's no sound.

    Phones work but later both lines light up but no dial tone. So I wait a bit and unplug and replug.

I really doubt that the phone system is at fault here.

If the phone programming has been set to 2-way and you have reset the phone. Either by unplugging it and waiting for a few minutes then plugging it back in or from the idle state press the "MUTE" key and then dial R E S E T on the keypad. If after this it will still not work as 2 way then it is most likely a faulty phone.

As bsmither said, how voice mail is accessed is very dependent on your phone company and how they've set things up. They would be the best place to ask about any problems you're having there.

As for programming the voice mail buttons on the 25204, I was confused by that one as well until I finally figured it out. Specializations aside, they're just speed dial buttons, and are programmed in exactly the same way as the ones along the right side of the phone. RCA could have documented that detail better than they did.

In my case, with Vonage, I just programmed the buttons with the numbers for the lines that they're associated with. When they dial and I'm connected to the voice mail system, I'm prompted for my VM password, which I then enter manually.

Does this phone have music on hold capability


I don't think so. There are extra hardware pieces that you could purchase that would plug into one of the jacks, but since you have a two line phone, it would pretty much defeat the purpose.

Speaker phone problem


It is possible. I have ATT 945(?) 4 line phones that communicate via a DSL-like signal between units to do special things like intercom, etc.

What I have in my setup is that I have a seperate line from the point of entry of my phone line to my DSL modem.

I then have TWO stacked DSL filters PER LINE that feed the main phone line running to all the phones.

Be AWARE that when using the speaker phone there is a modulation of the gains both directions. When you talk OR have a noisy background noise, the gain of the speaker is cut down to prevent feedback. And when you go silent, the speaker gain is increased for you to hear the other side of the call. Essentially it takes as much discipline as the old two-way radios... one talker at a time with these speaker phones AND very little background noise.

Need to activate Music on hold mode


The newer model RCA phone will do music on hold. There is a jack on the back of each phone, you plug a cd player or MOH device into it and it will play on ALL of the phones(not just that one).

RCA 25204 - Line 2 red light


It probably means that you only have one line attached to your phone. Either the wall jack is only enabled for one line, or your phone cord is a two-wire cord and should be replaced.
