Question about Phones

1 Answer

Whenever a door to the outside of my house is opened while someone is on the phone, the connection is lost and it is several minutes before I can get a dial tone again. I have older model cordless phones and a land line phone. I also have wi-fi. Have you heard of this problem before?

Happened to my grandma and she got it fixed by her service provided. Can be a pain in the *** sometimes, heard that it had something to do with gadgets conflicting with its frequency because they were similar or something.

Why no dial tone. Only static?


If that happens on all phones and you have copper wiring inside and out it usually is caused by a high resistance open (bad wire connection) either inside or outside the house.. If it happens on only one phone it is either ther phone itself (swap with another phone to prove it's the phone) or the wiring to the phone has a loose connection or is bad. If it happens one all phones test it where the telephone connection comes into the house. If it is still noisy the call the local TELCO. Wet lines can also cause the same problem so if you suspect there was any water leaks in the house disconnect the inside wiring from the telephone entrance connection before testing other if the problem is inside TELCO will charge. If you using a wireless phone use a wired phone to do the testing.

My in house telephones are not working,but the internet is working.WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THE TEELEPHONE WORK AGAIN.


Have you paid the phone bill? Are you supposed to have phone service?

Providing that you have a contract with the phone company and it's paid up, take a hardwire telephone out to the grey junction box on the outside of the house. Open the junction box and plug your phone into one of the two phone jacks inside, Try the phone. If you get no dial tone, try the other phone jack.

If you get no dial tone from either phone jack, borrow a hardwire telephone from a neighbor and try both jacks again with the borrowed telephone.

If no dial tone with your phone or your neighbor's phone, then the problem is on the phone company's side of that junction box.

If your neighbor's phone works but yours doesn't, the problem is your phones - lightening strike, maybe?

If your phone works in the junction box but not inside the house, then the wiring from the junction box to your house jacks has a bad connection somewhere. Someone - you or someone else - will have the arduous task of tracking down where that bad connection is.

Cordless phones


1) unplug all phones
2) plug them back in and check line.
If you still have the issue,!take a corded phone with. Phone jack coed to your box on the outside of the house. Usually gray, unscrew the first box - you'll see modules there - the one with the last four of your phone number is the module we'll use. Follow the directions on the box to open that module - plug your phone into the module. Here's the important thing - if you don't hear static, then the problem is from inside your house. If you call att to come out they will charge you - but that's the whole unplug the phones and centralize your base better. However, if you still hear static in the outside box, it's an att issue and have to come out at no charge.

My phone seems dead although the computer connection and the fax are working. Help!


First try a new phone cord and a different phone. Are all items attached to one jack with one phone number? If you have multiple jacks, check if the phone works on another jack. If you have separate phone lines, check if the phone works on the computer/fax line. Check if the phone works without the other devices (particularly if daisy chained). Swap out all of the cables in the chain if it works directly.

In the multiple line case, if your phone works on one line and not the other, check if a phone works on that line at the incoming service. (If you are lucky, the incoming service has RJ-11 connections and you can test this yourself. Otherwise, you'll need a service person.) I've had several cases where mice or something broke one of two incoming phone lines outside so I just lost that one phone number. If the outside service doesn't work, call your phone company. They will fix it for free. If the outside service works, check your jack for loose wires. Check any exposed wiring in the house for damage. If the wiring isn't damaged in the exposed areas or at the jack, you'll probably need a service call (for a fee).

Checking the jack and wiring also applies if the phone works at one jack and not another.

If another phone works and the AT&T phone doesn't, check if the power adapter is plugged in and warm or cold. If the power brick is cold, then replace the power supply. The information on the type of power supply is usually listed on the bottom of the phone. Since this is a corded phone, it should work even without power, but sometimes, it won't. If the power is good to the phone, then replace the AT&T phone. Unless it's under warranty, it isn't worth getting them serviced. They aren't meant to be user serviced.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I'm working at a doctor's office where we have the KX-T7731. Whenever someone is speaking on line 1, we cannot hear the ringtone for the incoming calls on line 2 or 3. Since this is a doctor's...


Let's pretend that this is connected to the TA family of phone sytsems. It could be one of 18 different systems, but let's guess.
From the intercom, dial 7311# and 7321# That sets the call waiting on busy for both outside and inside calls and lets the phone "soft ring".

The real question is whether you should have programmed more than one phone to ring, but I'll leave that for another time.

No dial tone on phone


When this happens you need to take the phone outside and open the phone box and plug it in. If it works the problem is inside of your house. If it does not work the problem is with the telephone company. Note if it does not work right away when you take it outside. Wait ten minutes before reconnecting the house wires. And try it again. Sometimes the telephone company will keep it disconnected for 10 minutes until the problem is taken off the line.

I have 3 phone jacks in my home and right now on one of them gets a dial tone. The other two are completely dead. What could be the problem?


There should be a termination point outside your house where the local phone company connects to the wiring inside your home. These are usually wired for at least two phone lines. Sounds like your house was at one time wired for two numbers and the jack that is working was on one number while the other two jacks were on a different number. Best thing to do is connect all three jacks to the working telephone line outside the house. Good Luck. ...Mike

Cordless phones will not connect to base.


I just had the same problem and tried several things with no results. Then, I figured I had tried everything else so I just unplugged the battery pack, set the phone down for 25 minutes and then plugged the pack back in. Phone worked again after that.
