no line shows up on two handsets
"no line" shows up on my vetch handset 1 as well as handset 2. . I have plugged and unplugged. . . .tried everything. . .unhooked jacks, etc.
Unplug the base station and any other device plugged into your telephone line.
Can you get dial tone where the line comes into the premises by connecting and using an old style corded telephone?
If you can get dial tone then perhaps the cord to the base station is faulty or the base station itself is faulty.
If you have no corded phone to use try the following:
With everything disconnected from your phone line, call your telephone number from another phone, e.g. a mobile phone .
Do you get ring tone in the phone you are using?
If so short out the line where it comes into the house and see if you 'trip' the ring, i.e. ringtone signal stops in calling phone. That will prove that the line works to there and perhaps the cord to the base station is faulty or the base station itself is faulty.
If you get ring tone but you can't trip the ring current your number is not appearing at the premises. The line may be open circuit.
If you get the engaged tone there may be a fault on the line.
If you get either of the last two results, contact your landline phone service provider about your problem. Tell them that you have disconnected all your equipment from the line so that they are aware of this when they test the line.
Hopefully this is of some help.
I had the same problem when I bought this phone at a garage sale it kept saying no home line then I switch out the telephone cord. And it started working after that the cord was faulty.
Had the same problem; “No Line” on our V-Tech handsets (2). I unscrewed the cable line to the phone / cable modem (both cable and phone on same unit); then screwed the cable back into the phone / cable unit. The phone now works! This has happened a couple times before too.
handset completely dead. nothing not a single button works and no dial tone .
Check the phone line going into the wall from the att modem after two tec finally got one that check every phone jack after 4hours this tec found the problem it was a slightly burnt out telephone line that plugged into the wall jack from the att modem if this helps you that’s great good luck Larry
