SOURCE: No Dial Tone

If you are sure that both cords are good (use another phone to test), make sure the Speaker button light is off. If both lines stay lit up when the phone is on the hook, your phones has problems. Can't help you there.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.

Your jack probably only has one line installed on it, therefore you only get one line. Have you checked to see if the jack has more than one line installed?

RCA visys dect 6.0 Line 2's light is lit and no dial tone. All handset are in off mode. Only Line 1 is available


Are the phone cables correctly connected to the base unit? Try a new cable for Line 2, if you have separate L1 and L2 jacks. (If the lines are integrated in one jack, make sure to use a 4-conductor RJ11 cord.) I assume the service hasn't been cancelled for line 2 and that you are at a wall plate with both lines.
If you have separate jacks, I like to use a different phone to check the jack. (A simple old fashioned corded, single-line phone is useful to check for a dial tone.) Try checking Line 2 at another jack, if you have one.
If you do not have a dial tone, find where your service comes in. Open the box and look at the terminals. If you are lucky, you have an RJ11 port. Plug in your test phone in to the Line 2 connection and listen for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, contact your telephone company. They will fix an outside line problem for free. (Mice and other things can damage the wiring. A lightning strike could damage a filter if you use the line for a high-speed internet connection.) If the terminal doesn't have an RJ-11 plug option, you will need to ask your telephone company to test the line.
If you recently had work done on the phone line, check for any wires that are loose. When we got our phone line upgraded to fiber optics, one of the telephone jack lines didn't get connected to the terminal in the new box. We found the wire behind the vinyl siding and got signal as soon as the wire was reconnected.)
If you have a dial tone at the box and no wires are obviously disconnected, you'll need to trace the wires inside to find a broken connection. If one jack worked for Line 2 and another didn't, check inside the wall plate. There are two wall-plate styles. The ones with a keystone jack needs the conductor wires pushed down into the correct slots. A punch-down tool is available from most hardware stores in the wiring section. The screw terminal type requires the individual wires to be stripped and then secured. The correct terminal positions are shown here: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx . Otherwise, you need to trace the wires in the walls to find the break in the continuity. Your phone company will do this for you for a fee. If you have a line filter inside, try replacing it.

I hope this helps.

My phone doesn't have dial tone. Each time I dial a number and try to call,it wont work. I call my phone but it wont ring. I need help on this. What happen to the phone? Or what should I do?


If you have another phone connect it to the wall outlet to see if you get a dial tone. This will indicate if your base unit is faulty.
Check the power adapter to the base unit, make sure it is getting mains power.
If the base unit has dual phone lines and if line 1 is only connected and the line 2 has beed selected then you cannot get a dial tone. In the chase press the line 1 to get a dial tone.
If your base unit has only one line then check the phone line at the wall socket make sure it is plugged in tight, also check the the connection at the base unit.
If this does not work then ring the phone company and get the to test your phone line, you may have a faulty line to your home.

I just installed a replacement At&t EP 5962 2 line, answering answering device telephone. Line 2 does not get a dial tone. I installed it into proper / same as before outlets and both lines light...


There may be damage to the wiring of line 2 (either in the building or on the phone). Are both lines wired to one jack or are they separate? Do you have any other jacks that have line 2 connected (preferably as single line jack) in the building?

I like to use an old single line corded phone that does not use a power adapter. (As long as the EP5962 corded base will work without power (POTS), it might work for the tests below. You might want a simpler phone to carry around.)

If the lines have separate jacks, try switching line 1 and line 2. (Connect your Line 2 jack to the Line 1 input on the phone and vice versa.) If line 2 doesn't give a dial tone when connected to line 1, see the next set of tests. Otherwise, contact AT&T if the phone is under warranty. These phones are not meant to be user-serviced. Alternatively, plug in a different phone to the line 2 jack to test for dial tone.

Next move to another jack with line 2. Check if you have dial tone at that point. (If you do, you know the problem is at the first jack or the wiring to the jack.)

If there is no dial tone at the next jack or you do not have another jack for the line, find where your telephone service comes in. Open the service box and determine the type of connections in the box. If you are lucky, you will find RJ-11 jacks for the incoming service. Plug in your test phone and check for dial tone. If you have no dial tone or can't check the service, then contact your telephone company. They will test your line and fix it free if the probIem is outside.

If you have a dial tone, then it's an inside wiring problem. Inspect the visible wires for damage. Open the faceplates for the jacks and check for loose wires. There are two types of connectors. Screw type connectors need the wire stripped back a little then wrap around the screw and tighten. The other type is a punchdown jack. To repair a loose wire in this, you will need a punchdown tool. These are often available in hardware/home improvement stores in the wiring section. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has clear pictures of the wire color to pin pattern.

You may want a professional to check the wires inside the walls. Your phone company will fix problems for a fee.

Damaged DSL filters on one line could be the cause. Similarly certain animals may have chewed on the specific wires somewhere in the line.

I hope this helps.

We have a 4-line system in our office, but it is not working properly. For instant, when line 4 rings...it only comes into one of the phones. All lines are working properly with dial tones. If we would...


Now here's a conflict. Does line 4 work on any other phone where it doesn't ring? You say all lines are working properly wiith dial tones, tnen you say you can't pick it up from another phone.

I don't think these phones have "private lines", but the dial tone comes from the 2nd RJ-14 jack on the wall. On every phone, you could swap the plugs so that line 1 comes into line 3 and line 3 comes into line 1 (you'll lose the intercom) and see if you get dial tone on line 2 which will be the phone that works line 4. The point being to determine if you have a wiring issue or a programming problem.
