Weird problems - phone does not ring, but lights up, and more!

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 1c

Not sure when it started - at least a couple of weeks ago.  The land line phone lights up, but does not ring.  Nothing has been altered to cause this.

 

More info -

I've checked the settings.  It's not muted.

I've tried a different phone.  Same thing happens.

We can call out on the phone, BUT sometimes the mobile we call will show a different number calling!

The phone is only needed for our Bosch alarm system to call us.  I've tested that and it still works.

We have an answering system on the phone.  That used to cut in after 2-3 rings, but doesn't now.

A couple of weeks ago the phone started to just ring once, then stop.  Now it doesn't ring at all.

 

We haven't changed anything!

 

How do I investigate and/or fix this?

 

Thanks.

Hi @adslimq2,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

I was able to locate your account using your community details.

 

Allow me to run initial tests on your home phone service and get back to you as soon as I got the test result.

Hi @adslimq2,

 

Test result shows a possible line fault causing home phone not to work. I will raise this to our Engineering Team for further test and investigation.

 

Assessment may take 24-48hrs and updates will be provided via SMS or a phone call.

 

Kindly PM me your best contact number and preferred time.

That's good news.  I thought I was going mad(der).

Hi Shane,

 

Just to thank you - all fixed.  The line and ADSL went completely down for a few hours, presumably while it was being sorted.

 

Now phone and net are back to normal.

 

Cheers!
