Phone rings but is dead air when we pick it up.
No dial tone.
Answering machine doesn't work.
When it was working it would cut us off in the middle of a conversation.
I tried unpluging it and taking the battery out of the handset and it would work again for a day or so and then all the above mentioned things would happen again.
I have only had it a year and it has been doing this for the last 5 monthes.

Re: Can this phone be saved?
Battery maybe defective. Buy a replacement battery. Give it a full charge before using.
Also the power transformer may be bad. Very common problem. You can usually find a replacement at Radio Shack or on line through Uniden. They are very good at shipping stuff normally. At the electronics place have them check the voltage output for you too.
If this doesn't solve the problem it sounds like you have a defective phone.

I gather you have the setting for tone and pulse set to tone? Also are you aware the ringing tone is generated by the phone company? When you dial a number and it connects, the phone provider sends the ring signal to the dial phone and the ringing signal to the dialing phone. Do you get a dial tone before dialing?
If your printer is connected to a modem make sure that the port has a dial tone. To check for dial tone, try to plug in a phone to the same port that you printer is connected to. If it doesn't have dial tone, you might want to check with your phone provider. Or you can plug in the printer straight to a wall jack.
Once the printer is connected to a line that has dial tone, you can then setup the printer to receive faxes. To set it up, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering.
If you have an answering machine, set your printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your answering machine. If not, set it to pick up on the 5th ring that way you will still have time to pick up the phone if it's a voice call.
If you have a voicemail service from your phone provider, you'll need to contact your phone provider to get a distinctive ring feature. Once you'll have that feature, you can assign a distinctive ring to your printer. You can find that under Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Ring Pattern.
First, try to check every telephone line is properly plugged into its phone jack. If you have a problem with just one phone, plug a different phone into that jack. If the second phone works, the problem lies in the first phone.
Then unplug each phone and answering machine in your house, one at a time. Wait 30 seconds after unplugging the first device. Pick up another phone to see if there's a dial tone -- if there is, then the first phone may be faulty. If not, continue unplugging phones in the same way and check for dial tone. If you find a phone that doesn't work, plug all your other phones back in and see if they work properly. The faulty phone should be replaced.
or disconnect the plug from the test jack inside the exterior box. This disconnects your inside wiring from phone company's line. If you have more than one line, select the test jack for the line that is causing the problem. Plug your phone into the jack; this plugs you directly into the phone company's line. If you have a cable modem, plug the phone directly into the jack on the modem.
Then pick up the phone receiver to see if there's a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, the problem is with your outside wiring. If there is a dial tone, the trouble is caused by your inside wiring, equipment or jacks.
Even though the plug that plugs into the wall on an M-7310 looks like the same plug that the answering machine has, it's function is completely different. The information passed on the single pair of wires is enough to make a 24 button 10 button or 8 button system phone work, has no ringing voltage or dial tone for a single line device like your answering machine.
A Nortel system has ports that have that information, but most likely the answering machine was installed BEFORE the phone system lines, which means it only answered the first line.
Try plugging your answering machine into the EXACT location it was before.
