Hi Nlowerys112_3, we can help you fix your cordless phone.


We have a guide on our website that covers troubleshooting home phone issues.


Follow these steps:

  1. Unplug connections and power supplies. This includes telephones, computers, faxes, modems, satellite television or cable boxes, alarm systems, adapters, and filters.
  2. Test your telephone line(s) by plugging a single phone directly into a telephone jack (wall).

You'll also want to check for both inside and outside issues.


If you need further assistance, let us know.

Take a known working corded phone to the NID and if it's the same problem there report to the phone company. If you don't know how just google testing phone line from the NID.
