I mean The phone cables, the ones that connect to the phone sockets.

Try first unplugging all power cords and waiting ten minutes, then check connection to phone, ensure that the phon cable is not for example on top of a power adapter.

Really bad crackling sound on certain calls

if only happens on certain calls it could either be the handset itself, a week point on all corded phones is the cable between the handset and the body of the phone. whilst talking to someone on a call wiggle the cord where it enters the handset, does it crackle if not do the same where the cord enters the phone body, if no crackle likely not phone.

next select a line if you have more than 1 line note which 1 and dial 17070. this will BT autotest the line. if more than 1 line on system do same for all lines. check with your system admin if there are quick codes to select individual lines, eg dial 9 for any line or 81 for line 1 82 for line 2 etc .

if you get crackle still on 1 of the lines get your maintainer to check the lione at the cable head where lines enter building

How do I install? I have the base plugged into service outlet and the adapter into electrical outlet. The phone reads "no line". I cant get the setup. Jerry Koenig

  1. Check is that your cables are plugged in firmly.
  2. Check is to make sure you have the filter installed correctly (as shown in the manual, make sure its not backwards).
  3. You need to confirm with your service provider that the line is actually active (some times it takes a while for the service provider to activate a line)
  4. Replace the cables and see if that works (the cables could be faulty).

If none of the above works then the easiest thing for you to do is call your service provider for assistance (they should have a technical support line).

When you are on the phone, you can hear the ring of a call on another incoming line in your ear

check inside wiring connected to jack for this phone.It is possible old sub-standard category -3 cable was used which would cause inductive cross.If that is the case use cat-5 or even cat-6 cable.The difference is the twists on this cable are tighter ,therefore eliminating most inductive cross.

Phone has "no line" on screen

First have you checked the phone line for a dial tone? Is the cable undamaged and plugged into both the phone base and the wall. I keep an old rotary phone and extra RJ11 cables among my diagnostic tools just to track if a phone problem is inside, outside or an individual phone.

I hope this gives you a starting place. I can't help you beyond this. If the problem is the base or the handset, you'll need someone with knowledge of that model or its manual.

Won't work on my cable line

I called Thompson's phone company 1-800-720-2094 (which is who GE goes through) and apparently it is a hardware issue. That couldn't offer any suggestions for the fix except to call the cable company to see if they can issue us a new hardware device. . . . apparently there is a compatability issue. . . .well, duh, ya think?!! The phones don't work with cable lines!
