If the phone has a dial tone, adjust the ringer loudness (this adjustment is on the bottom of some phones). Also check to see if there is a switch for turning off the ringer--and turn it on.

In some cases, you can't connect more than five phones to a given line or they won't ring properly. If this is your situation, you may have to disconnect one or more phones, or at least turn their ringers off.

Fax won't answer


If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:

To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.

If you have a voicemail feature associated to the same line as your fax:

Voice mail and fax can share the same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and which device you should use to answer the call.


If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.

I hope this helps.

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...


A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

How do i connect a 1960 rotary phone up?Which wires do i hook up? I have a blue wire &a blue white wire coming into my building,


The Blue and Blue/white represent the first pair in a multi pair telephone cable. The second pair is orange the third is green and so forth. If this line is active, you will get a dial tone when you place a telephone instrument on this pair (or any subsequent live pair). Notice. If you are hanging on to the pair when the telephone rings - you will experience a 60 volt DC shock. It will not kill you but you may find it unpleasant.

On your Western Electric '500' telephone set, you should have three wires coming out of the original cable, a red, a green and a yellow. Normally, the red and the green will operate your phone on a 'private line' (only one customer on a private line). Try various combinations until you get a dial tone. You no doubt have a private line as there are very few party lines around these days if you are in the USA (and please do not say). Once up on a time, there were "party lines" where neighbors shared a line and they knew the call was for them based on the number of rings. The first customer got one ring, the second customer got two rings and so forth up th as many as 4 rings. When the telephone rang, you listened for the number of rings and answered only if it was your number. Picking up a call that was not your ring was frowned upon though it was not unknown for neighbors to listen in to other neighbors calls. It was like a reality show!

If your 500 has been upgraded with a RJ-11 wire, plug the wire in just as you would any modern telephone. If yours doesn't ring, remove the cover and study the interface. You will find several terminals marked L1, L2 etc. Move the wire you find on a "L" terminal to the various otgher L terminals until it rings when called. You may also have to adjust the spring on the ringer to get it to operate properly.

I hope this information helps you get your 1960 telephone to work.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com and enjoy your old telephone.

Program phone numbers into memory


My friend, thank you for this information. I understand your frustration at not being able to program Mom's telephone number into your Durabrand so she can speed dial you.

Thank you for this information. At least now I can suspect this is a telephone to be used with a hard wire telephone system, probably in a home, and not a cell telephone.

I searched Durabrand and, well, I still don't know who they are or where they are. I was going to try to get to the instruction book that should have come with your telephone. I couldn't find any Durabrand web site. So, now I share a part of your frustration, but at least you have the telephone in your hand to work with, while I have nothing.

If this is a new device, and you don't have the instruction book, I suggest you return it to the place you bought it and get a model that has instructions with it. Perhaps you should inquire before you leave the store as to programming issues.

The best I can do at this point is offer this web site for you to search: www.archive.org. And, additionally, I will suggest there is, on the telephone, some place where you can get a menu. You will have to search the menu for the speed dial directory. Once you find that, it should be self-explaniatory.

My friend, thank you for using FixYa.com. Please come back often. Remember, good questions get good, quick answers at FixYa.com. Please include important particulars without drowning we volunteer question catchers with unnecessary details.

If you have trouble activating your Windows using the Internet, then you need to activate Windows using the telephone method.
Follow the Activating process and select by telephone and enter your country and the screen instructions will give you the phone number to ring.

Same Number for Fax and Telephone


The fax is designed for use with an answering machine, the greeting for which must be no longer than 15 seconds. If voice mail in this case is referring to answering machine, be certain that the message is as indicated.

About Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD)
"Distinctive Ring" is a service provided by some telephone service providers. Two phone numbers are assigned to one phone line so that you will hear different ring patterns for incoming phone calls than for incoming faxes. If you subscribe to this service, follow the instructions below to program your All-In-One to use it.
On the X125:
Press Setup once, then press Menu nine (9) times until DRPD appears on the display.
On the X63:
  1. Press Setup once, then press Menu eight (8) times until DRPD appears on the display.
  2. Press Options until you see Learn, and then press Start/Yes.
  3. Dial the phone number that you want to use as a fax number. (Do this from a different phone line, not from the line the fax will be installed on.)
  4. Press Setup.
  5. Press Menu until you see Fax Receive Mode on the display.
  6. Press Options until you see DRPD, and then press Start/Yes. The All-In-One detects the ring pattern and answers all incoming faxes on the second ring.
