I have no dial tone


This seems to be a hardware issue with the DSLAM box i.e multiplexer box. Multiplexer box is the box from where the copper wire is coming. Please call verizon and ask them to check the line and the multiplexer. The line maybe fine from their end till multiplexer however, there might be voice channel issue at Multiplexer end. Purely their issue not with the phones.

Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

Heavy Static on phones. Can't hear caller. No caller ID

Room monitoring mode is basically a type of Intercom.

Press the *TONE/exit button on the handset to exit room monitor mode.

I will provide you with link to the user manual of the phone. Have a check at it. Might be useful.

I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.

#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes.

reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in. It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.

Model28112 series cordless phone multi phones 4 total

This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself. Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.

GE phone answerer model 2-9876. Very much static on two incoming calls, 8 days apart. Only times in 26 years.

That will be because the static was at the callers line, not at your end. At this time of year it is water in junction boxes at the caller's residence. If it was on every call, it would be down to your connections.

General Electric GE 27956FE1 Dect 6.0 Photo Phone with Photo CID. It has a white screen?

Question edited for a lot more clarity. You are only the second person to have this issue. Refer to the manual and do a reset, but in doing so you will lose all saved data. https://www.google.com/search?q=general+electric+ge+27956fe1+white+screen+fix ..

I have a GE model #29893GE1-B it is connected and plugged in, but no dial tone

Remove all the phones on the system. Remove all the handset batteries. Plug in one old style corded phone to the main phone jack, it is normally the one closest to the front door. Do you have dial tone? If not, it is your Telco. If you have a dial tone, plug all the other phones in testing for a dial tone as you go.

Why is my GE washer leaking water from the right front corner?

A leak coming from the front of a front-load washer is often caused by a damaged or dirty door seal. If the door seal is cracked or loose, it will need to be replaced in order to restore a watertight seal. Always ensure all clothes pockets are empty prior to washing, as objects left in pockets can damage the door seal.

GE 2-9831a - My landline phone can't get a dial tone?

Line in use means another phone is being used. If you have more than one phone, the second phone is off the hook or someone is already using the phone. Check all phones and be sure they are hung up.
