Hi I have a vtech Hannah Montana Cordless phone and it won't ring. It has a slash through the ringer bell on the screen. I've tried the ringer settings taking the battery out and the tone and nothing works. Everything else works great. Thankyou

These can be the only things that are causing your problems:

Ringer mute
You can mute the ringer temporarily when the telephone is ringing.
Press OFF/CLEAR or MUTE to temporarily silence the ringer. The next call will ring normally.

Ringer volume
You can change the handset ringer volume to a comfortable level. The ringer can also be turned off so the telephone does not ring when there are incoming calls.
To adjust the ringer volume:
Press MENU/SELECT to display the menu when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select >RINGER VOLUME, then press MENU/SELECT.
Press or to adjust the volume. A sample of each volume level will be played as you adjust it.
Press MENU/SELECT to save your selection. You will hear a confirmation tone.


Make sure the ringer is on (page 8).
Make sure the telephone line cord and power adapter are plugged in properly (page 2).
The handset may be too far from the telephone base. Move it closer to the telephone base.
There may be too many extension phones on the telephone line to allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Try unplugging some of them.
If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in the wiring or local service. Contact the local telephone company (charges may apply).
Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless telephone. Try installing your telephone as far away as possible from the following electronic devices: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cellular telephones, digital telephones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, VCRs, personal computers, kitchen appliances, and other cordless telephones.
Test a working telephone at the telephone wall jack. If another telephone has the same problem, the problem is in the telephone wall jack. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
The telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new telephone line cord.
Wait for the handset to synchronize with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

    Tried all the above. The ringer settings are leveled high.

    What model of phone is this? Is it the 6117?

How do i change/control ringer volume on presidian cordless 5.8 ghz?


While the phone is on standby, press vol/bell to hear the current ringer tone. Press vol/bell again while the tone is ringing to switch to the other ringer tone. The last ringer tone heard will be selected as the phone's ring tone setting.

We dont know how to turn the ringer down on the phone


The IA5864 doesn't have a ringer volume control but it does offer you a choice of several different ring styles, some quieter than others.

With the handset in idle (off) mode, press PROG. Press up/down until the screen displays "RINGER:" and the current setting. Press SELECT and you'll hear a sample of the ring. Press up/down to change the style. You'll hear a sample ring each time.

Full instructions are on page 9 of the manual at

No ringer, a symbol with a bell with a line throught it on screen. how do I correct it?


Look for a function or menu button.Press it,or you may need to hold it down.It will probably have all kinds of options available so you will have to cycle through it to set # of rings,ring on,ring volume etc.It should be there somewhere.If there is a directional looking button,you may have to use it to set some stuff.Press the original button again to cycle through.
