Theres a short inside the phone. The best way to troubleshoot this is to take apart and try to feel if an IC or part is getting hot or use a metter to check.

We had a thunderstorm and a transformer was struck by lightening. I have no dial tone. Do I need another AC Adaptor. The display screen is blank. My other telephone worked ok when I plugged it up....

What all you need can be decided upon after eliminating the faulty items one by one. First the AC adapter. Check with another device if the adapter is functional. Or if you have a multimeter. Next the phone, try another adapter. Where from? Read the specs printed on the adapter. It will tell you the Input and output voltages. Then it also tells you about the frequency. Then the wattage. If all of them match or come close you can use it. Trip to the store is warranted. Thunderstorms and lightenings generally do not leave anything intact. So, I hope your phone is intact. Adapter can be replaced easily.

GE portable phone model # 26928GE1-D No dial tone-installed new battery still no tone

That isn't a whole lot to work with. Get a working phone and take the cord out of the base of the GE and plug it into the working phone.
If the working phone gets a dial tone, look into the modular receptical on the GE base and see if the contact wires aren't out of place.
If you don't get a dial tone on the working phone, try changing the connection cord between the phone and the wall. Also look for the same problem in the wall receptical as discribed above for the GE base.

Polycom soundstation Ex - no dial tone

Someone in our office recently damaged the RJ-45 cable for our Polycom Soundstation. Because the jack was damaged I could not determine the order of the cables. After a call to polycom, we found the pinout information we needed - so I thought I would share, in case anyone else finds themselves in a similar situation:
With the RJ-45 prong pointing down the wires, from left to right are:
  • Black
  • Brown
  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • White
Then Crimp and test. I got this information directly from Polycom for use with the Polycom Soundstation. This information was not easy to get. They originally told me they could not provide the information and I would have to buy a power adapter. This is not true, just trim the cable and follow the above instructions.
