I have no dial tone but my answering machine works for incoming messages
Is your answering machine built into the phone or is it a separate machine? If the answering machine is still receiving messages, it means that you are still getting a phone signal. Reconnect the phone to the jack and see if that restores the dial tone.
Or by answering machine, do you mean voicemail?
my phone and answering machine are 1 unit. I also have a 2nd phone/base but neither phone has dial tone. I have tried unplugging. Everything seems to be hooked up but I am not an electronics whiz ( have trouble with the tv remote) My son was over and reconnected my printer to my laptop. He said he deleted a couple of things but should that have anything to do with the phone??
Is your printer an all-in-one device (printer/scanner/copier) with a fax machine enabled on it too? If the printer's connected to the phone jack, disconnect it from the jack and see if the other phone has dial tone again.
printer is all in 1 but no fax. tried unplugging but still no dial tone. I think I will have to get a technician to come have a look.
Could you try connecting a Phone Directly to Your Digital Phone Terminal?
thx for suggestion. I don't know one end from another--will wait for kids to come this weekend and see if they can figure this out.
I'll send you a message and see if we can arrange for a technician to come out sooner, don't want you to be without phone for that long.
Please check the ^inbox above for a private message from me.
