I have a VTECH 6.0 and I believe a lightning strike took out the telephone base power adapter and would like to purchase a replacement adapter.


Any generic adapter will work as long as is is the same voltage and rating on the wall adapter you have. It is a 6 volt 400MA adapter. Radio Shack has generic adapters. Also try your adapter in another wall socket and see if that works.

Hope this helps.

When removed from cradle and then dial it gives a beeping sound and does not dial or have connection sound.


First, does the base have power? Is the handset fully charged and recognized by the primary base station (for a multi-handset system)? Is the base station plugged in to a working phone line (I like to use an old corded phone for checking this - listen for dial tone first)? Is the phone cord to the base bad (try a different cord)? Does your phone work with the base plugged into another phone jack? If you can, check if the incoming phone wiring is working (there should be a box where the utility comes in that can be opened - plug in a test phone into the test jack there).

A bad jack is indoor wiring and you will be responsible for fixing it. (Depending on the faceplate, these are either multiple wires to screws or a terminal block. The screw type can be overtightened and break one wire.) If it is a problem at the utility box, your phone company should do the service.

I hope this helps.

(I've lost phone service at the box on one line of a multi-line home for unknown reasons and lost all lines due to a bad backhoe operator. Both were fixed asap by the company. A third outage only affected the dsl and was lightning strike related - damaged a noise/interference block.)

Constant static and noise on the cordless, have not had this problem with other phones in the same location. I have tried the frequency scan- no difference. The noise is so bad the cordless cannot be used.


The main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line

* Weather:
Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
Checked the connections the cable and the Sockets
If you have the Test socket or the First Socket where the Telephone is is entering .. check the Connections there

* Electrical interference:
Check the Power lines,
Check radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may causing noise on the phone line.

* Other phone devices:
Check for the Connection to the FAX check by unpluging the FAX Machine or answering machines,
Disconnect the other phones and line splitters --
Disconnect the Splitters or devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.

* DSL services:
The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.
Note : high-frequency signals coming from DSL helps for FAST Internet Connection speed which sometime cause the problem to the Phone or Voice signals for this need to contact to ISP to check the Voice margin .. that may effect your internet Speed

IF the above wont work..

You can try keeping the device near Heater .. it could be the Moisture which might causing this issue
or
Show the Device to the Service provider to repair it

My FF 2125ATF answerer/phone is not working correctly. The handset clicks constantly and the buttons most of the time don't beep when pressed and then there is no dial tone. The battery pack has the...


It sounds as though your phone has been hit by a power surge or lightning. Try the phone at another location and try another phone at this location to make sure there are no problems with the line. I would almost bet you will find that another phone will work but this phone will not work at another location. Phones are very susceptible to a power surge and to a lightning strike. If another phone works at this location then just buy another phone. It will be cheaper than having this one repaired. Phones are cheap but repairs are not. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

No dial tone.


Lightning Strike near your phone line caused a optical coupler in the phone to burn up. A simple fix with the part. When I worked for Sony I fixed many in Lightning Zones.

If the base any water damage it will do the same thing.

Lightning strike ac adaptor is fried


Your phone did expirence a surge that probably blew the ac adaptor which happens most of the time, u can buy one of those universal adaptors and look on the back of the old adaptor for the output voltage it will usually read between 3 and 8 volts DC.Set the universal adAptor voltage to the setting right below the voltage output on the back of the ac adaptor.

My internet and phone line run through the same jack. My internet works but my phone doesn't.


If you have DSL for your Internet then you should have been provided DSL filters, one side has a phone logo and the other has DSL. Make sure the phone is plugged into the right side of the filter. Good luck.
