My callers complain that when they call my phone, it keeps on ringing and nobody answers. The problem is, my phone which is a Uniden Powermax 5.8 ghz cordless just stopped ringing for almost a month now when receiving calls so that I do not know any more when somebody is calling.
Re: My phone does not ring when a call is received
I've found this to be a problem with regular phone lines (POTS) and
Uniden phones. Uniden phones do not seem to support 90v @ 20hz ringing
voltage / frequency. They work fine in every aspect except for
ringing. These phones do work well with voip, where you aren't
connected to the telephone company and have calls routed over the
internet. The boxes that handle the voip calls generally produce less
than 90v and work well w/ Uniden phones.

Solution: Contact local phone company to check the telephone wall jack for low ring voltage.
Facsimile equipment?(fax machines), like other telephone anwering devices, require ring voltage at a telephone jack to answer automatically.? The ring voltage is one of the services provided by the local phone company.
Low ring-in voltage can cause short bursts of ring tones at the phone jack.
Callers may hear one or two ring back tones and then ringing will stop and nothing else will be heard.
Inside the home, the called party will hear a brief ring and then nothing else will be heard. If the telephone handset is lifted, the caller may be on the other end.
To check if the fax will not answer due to low ring-in voltage, do the following:
Disconnect the fax at the telephone wall jack.
If an answering machine is available, connect it directly to the telephone jack. If an answering machine is not available, connect a telephone to the telephone jack.
Dial the fax line and see if the answering machine answers the call, listen for uncommon ring tones inside the home or check for similar symptoms as described above. If any of the above symptoms occur, please contact your local telephone company.
Try changing the receive mode from automatic to FAX ONLY and set the number of fax rings higher. You should be able to receive phone calls and if you are not answering your phone it will automatically receive a fax.
