Question about Toshiba DKT-2010 Corded Phone
Pat, The steps you suggested did not work. Maybe I didn't explain myself properly. Not only is the handset inoperable, but the switchook is also disabled. Picking up/hanging up the handset has no effect whatsoever on the telephone. I was able to find a free manual online. I don't recall the address, but I found it via Google. If this additional information helps shed some more light on my situation, please reply. Thank you.
These phones have a horrible problem with the hook switch. If you can only get the phone to work in speakerphone mode, most likely the hook switch is shot. If nothing happens when you lift the handset a bad hookswitch is likely. If the hook switch works but the talk path in the handset does not work, there may be a cut jumper wire. The wire is cut when a headset adapter is installed and if that adapter was later removed it will effect the talk path for the handset. If you take the back of the phone off you can see the jumper (visible from the back of the circuit board through a notch next to the speaker) If you can use a soldering iron, a cut jumper can be repaired easily by bending the wire back so there is only a small gap and soldering it. -Ben
