This happened to mine , I never had aproblem before than one day ??? didnt work . I changed phone jacks ?? dont know why ??
1. Try disconnecting all phones in the household except the phone being affected.
2. Do a test call to see if the unit rings.
3. If the phone rings at this time, begin reconnecting all the other units one at a time. If the affected phone does not ring again, this is an indication that there are too many phones in the loop.
4. If possible try testing the phone on a totally different phone jack (friends or neighbors) to check if the same thing happens.
Also make sure the phone is not connected through an external answering machine, caller ID box, fax machine, computer, splitter, or defective DSL filter. If so then connect the telephone cord directly to the telephone jack and make a test call.

I just bought a new Uniden DECT 6.0 phone and had a similar problem. It wouldn't ring when plugged into my Linksys voip router, but my old 5.8 GHz did ring. It would get a dialtone and make calls, but when called via an outside line, it would appear as if it was ringing. If I picked up during this "silent ring," it would answer and take the call. It wasn't a ringer volume issue. I called tech support, they said on the main headset, unplug the battery, then unplug power from the base, then unplug the phone cord from the base. Wait 15-30s. Plug the phone cord, then power, then reinstall the battery. Press the End button on the phone. Put the phone on the base for 15-30s. Pick up the phone. Press and hold the Find button on the base. Do this Find thing 3 times. Put the phone back on the base. Wait 10-15 minutes. Then try calling it to see if it rings. Worked for me, finally got it to ring before I decided to return it.
If someone is calling, do you see it on the phone? If so, you may have muted the sound. Try looking for a a button with a music note on the phone. Hold that button for a bit(atleast that's how it works on my phone)

The primary phone sets the ring for all phones. If it is off, nothing will ring. Once it is on you may set the volume of the rings on all sets individually. If you have the manual, look under Ringer Off on the main set. Hope this helps, let me know
Hi at the back of the phone you will see a selectable Hi/Lo/Off switch. Slide the (Ringer) switch to High position or Low position to turn the ringer on. Hi for high volume Lo for low volume.
To prevent hearing any ringing of incoming calls slide the (ringer) switch to the off position but when you ready to accept incoming calls again remember to slide the switch back to either Hi or Low setting. Hope this made sense and helped.
