    Yes, as far as I can find out, it seems to be only with my home phone.

    Contact you service provider and see if they can resend a signal to your cell phone which will fix any service issues.

EL52500 Phone base & 4 handsets have static, message Line in Use. Bought new phone, charged, connected - it says no line. Have dial tone at phone line into house.


Sounds like your phone has a short. If you see the message "line in use" call your number, is it busy, now unplug your phone and call your number again, is it ringing? Indicates a short, possibly in your equipment. As for message " no line" is the electric connected to the phone and did you check for dial tone in tat particular jack with a known, working phone first...just to make sure there's dt @ the jack. Good Luck :)

This is my mother's phone. She cannot retrieve her voicemail messages. Typically, she "taps" the OK button twice, then it prompts her for her pin. However, she has done something because when she taps the...


she has changed her speed dial options to her daughters number instead of hers, or that was the last number dialed, have her manually call her own number from the device and then in the call log set it to speed dial for the number one.... This should take care of the issue.

Can not call out


how many phone lines do you have in your house? if you only have one, it sounds like something is wrong with the lone itself, on the carrier's end.....meaning the phone company needs to come inspect their switch.......if you try another phone and it works fine, then, the 1st phone was messed up, and shouldnt even be used anymore at all, just to simplify things.

something you can try, is make sure that you dont have anything that transmits an RF signal, near the phone base....like a wireless router, a cell phone and so on......try to change the channel on the phone if you can.

PROBLEM: Vtech phones are OK, but really, when it comes to electronics, you get what you pay for, so i would suggest just getting another phone. If you have DSL, make sure your filter is installed, and try a different filter if you have one...just make sure it is connected to your phone correctly. If a different pone gives you the same problem, contact your phone providers from another location and schedule a date for them to come check your lines out.

Panasonic KX-T7730- assigning speed dialing/one touch. I tried to press prog button and the one touch button..but it gives me an error message "not stored". How to solve this? I have 12 buttons to assign...


It says "Not Stored" because you haven't stored anything in it. There are 12 buttons on the left side with lights and 12 buttons for feature dialing on the right. If you want to monitor extensions, the buttons on the left are the ones to use. If you want to store speed dial numbers and feature codes use the ones on the right.

Left button programming. Press PROGRAM and the button. For extensions, dial 1+ext and STORE. For CO's, press 0+line number, for inside codes press 2+code, for outside number press 2+9+number, all followed by STORE.

Right button programming. For inside codes dial the code, for outside number press 9+number followed by STORE.

Note that you could also dial "8x" or "80x" in place of "9" for specific line access. Also, you can store extension speed dial numbers on the right, you just won't get a light indication when they're busy.

Answering machine full, but says no messages!


First thing, You should NEVER post your live phone number online in an open forum like this... secondly NEVER tell people that you have been gone for a month, with a phone number where you can reverse tag the number to find where you live...


Around the bottom of page 20 and top of 21 are the instructions for remote dial access...

Here is a link to the manual for your phone:

Good luck!

Programing Speed dial on Walker W1000 Clarity Phones


I solved my problem by trial and error!

Steps to program speed dial on the Walker/Clarity Model W-1000 Touch Tone Sound Amplifier desk set phone w/large number pad.

1. Choose phone number to program including the (#1) digit for a long distance direct dial if
needed.
Write chosen number(s) on a scratch pad as a guide for numbers. Identify numbers with the
names or contact description (ie."Mom's Cell Phone.")

2. Remove hand set receiver from phone.

3. Press "memory set" button ONCE on the phone located uder the receiver on the desk set.

4. Enter phone number chosen,including area codes and long distance prefixes if needed!

5. Locate the speed dial position button you want for that number...(located adjacent to
tag/pad slot for name and/or phone number to be written after entering.

6. Press the speed dial position button (ONCE). Then replace receiver back in craddle.

7. Try out speed/dial program. Pick up receiver, push speed dial button(position) listen to see if
correct phone number is contacted. Once established as correct; program additional speed dial
numbers: ie family, business, as needed.
8. DO NOT TRY TO PROGRAM THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY 911 NUMBER! Keep this in your
own memory!
9. If you make a mistake while entering a phone number: Stop, Hang up phone and start all over
again in the procedure sequence.

10. Remove white "description pad with slots for names or numbers) from underneath clear
plastic cover.(use a paper clip end to lift up plastic cover). Write name/description for that number
on white pad(ie. "Mom's Cell") Use a PENCIL FOR DESCRIPTIONS!!

11. TO SAVE TIME AND INCONVENIENCE TO PERSONS/BUSINESSES OF HAVING TO
ANSWER YOUR CALLS; CHOOSE A AUTOMATED ANSWERING NUMBER (USUALLY A
BUSINESS ANSWERING AUTOMATED SERVICE (IE. LARGE INSTITUTIONAL PHONE
NUMBER THAT HAS A MENU PROMPT usually a AT&T 800 # will have a prompt menu
USE this procedure to see if you program correctly then once you know how; go back and re-
enter all the numbers that you actually want on your speed dial settings.

I can't make long distance call?


Is this a recording, or does the phone display this ?

If this is a recording, it is from the long distance provider. Did you change long distance companies lately?

Call your long distance company....this is their fault.

Area code


Here is a link to the site containing a pdf manual link and this is an excerpt for you :

Long Distance calls and Area Code Setting/Cancellation
While the present Caller ID information is displayed, pressing */tone/< will place
or remove the prefix "1" in the display to set the call for a long distance call, or
pressing #/> will set or cancel an area code (see page 30).
Storing Caller ID messages in the Phonebook
Messages shown in the Caller ID list can be stored in the phonebook. The phone
number and name of the party on the Caller ID list can be stored in memory.
1) When the phone is in standby mode, select the Caller ID message to be stored.
Then press the STORE soft key on the base or the EDIT soft key on the handset.
From the handset, then select E D I T ?. S t o r e / E d i t N a m e appears. If the Caller ID
message is already stored in memory, you will hear a beep and T h i s d a t a i s
a l r e a d y s t o r e d ! ! appears. The number will not be stored.
2) To complete the setting, follow the steps 3-8 in "Phonebook (Storing Phone
Numbers, Names, Distinctive Rings, and Speed Dial)" on pages 42-43.
