    I, too, have the same problem with my se445 trio. The phone rings 4 times as I have set it for, then after the the 4th ring, instead of going to the answerphone, it starts another 4 rings, then another, and will continue like this indefinitely. When I first set the phone up, it was working as it should and I did receive a couple of calls which went to answerphone, but after a few days, it got into this loop.



    I have unplugged the new phone and plugged the old one back in, but now any telephones that I use, with or without answerphone facilities, just ring and ring. When I pick up, the line is completely dead.



    Virgin have checked my line and said it is fine for receiving calls, but I cannot make calls or pick-up calls that come into me. I have an engineer coming to me this Saturday, 23 August, and I hope it is a problem with the telephone line, but would appreciate any information regarding the telephone itself.



    Many thanks.

Regarding the Philips SE445 cordless phone/answerphone. I posted my problem where it rings 4 times then continues to ring without cutting into the answerphone. My phone is now fixed and working as it should which is great. I was unable to make calls because I had no dial tone and although Virgin checked my line and said it was fine, it obviously wasn't. The problem was with the line in the Exchange Box - the big green boxes that are located on the roadside - the line was broken there. Once fixed, I had my dial tone and the SE445 is working perfectly. To nomad1066, I would insist that BT check their Exchange Boxes as this is probably where the problem lies. Check whether you have a dial tone. Hope this helps.

Phone rings once and gets forwarded


Hello there,

Call forwarding is a feature of PABX and Public Exchange systems so do you mean the phone rings once and then 'forwards' to another different telephone number ? If so, then you need to contact the company / person controlling your Lines as you cannot change this on your phone.

If you mean that the phone rings once and then goes on to Answerphone, then this is down to the setting of 'ring count' which is on page 40 of your user manual downloadable here http://www.manualslib.com/manual/117136/Panasonic-Kx-Tg2431.html

If this doesnt answer your question, these please ask again and try and give us more information to help you.

Why won't my answerphone work properly?


Either you must set your home answering machine to answer on fewer rings OR disable the phone company's message system.

I have a Uniden cordless unit hooked in 4 lines. Incoming calls ring briefly for about 1 second and go out! You can talk if you pick up but not sure why no normal rings. There is no problem calling out....


When someone calls you and your phone behaves this way, does the caller get disconnected? The phone may be causing this, but it may also be due to trouble in the telephone line itself. The trouble is caused by defective wiring, a partial short circuit. When you pick up your phone to call out, the voltage on the phone line is low and it works normally. When you get an incoming call, a high voltage is sent to ring the phone. Because of the partial short, the phone company's equipment thinks you've answered the call as soon as the ringing starts. But you haven't picked up the phone, so the phone company's equipment thinks you've hung up and disconnects the call. The result is that short burst of ringing.

Disconnect the cordless phone base unit from the line and try another phone. If you still have the trouble this confirms the line is at fault. You'll need to contact your phone service provider for service. If it's in the outside wiring, they're responsible for repair. If the problem is in your home wiring, you may need to pay them unless you have a wiring maintenance plan.

If the problem goes away when the cordless base is disconnected, then it's time for a new phone.

There could be DC voltage on the ringer circuit. When a phone line is not in use there should be 0 Volts on the ringer circuit. Sometimes a device connected to your line can "leak" voltage on to the ringer circuit, and some phones will see this as a continuous ring signal.

1. Check all of the telephone cables and any power cables - are they securely plugged in?
2. Remove every device connected to your phone line except the phone that was ringing continuously.
3. If the ringing stops, put the devices back one at a time and see which one causes the problem.
4. If the ringing does not stop, the fault is either in the telephone or your master socket.
5. If you have another phone that is known to be working, try it out to see if it has the continuous ringing.
6. If the problem no longer occurs, there could be a problem the telephone equipment, and you should contact the telephone's manufacturer for support.
7. If the test phone has the continuous ringing, call your telephone provider and tell them that there may be a short circuit in your phone line.
8. If the problem happens only with your cordless phone, and not a corded phone, then it could be interference from a device such as a wireless broadband router or microwave or the cordless handset batteries may not be charging properly.

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.
