Telephone / Phone Line problem

Hi,

Just curious as to what my problem might be, as of perhaps last week, when the phone rings, the caller id does not work and on picking it up there is silence.

I cannot hear a ring tone when picking up the handset from scratch but a faint zzzzzzeeeee stuck sound. The broadband is unaffected.

The phone is an old Panasonic dect wireless jobby for which I have replaced batteries a few times, but with which the internal calling between handsets still works.

Unfortunately I only have the one phone and this cannot think of how to test the line, is there some way that I can?

Being deaf I would not bother buy a new phone but have to for an elderly family relative to call me each week and it has to be a fairly expensive one!

Thanks for any suggestions.

Perhaps borrow a neighbour's phone temporarily; plug in and see if you get same sounds as on your Panasonic.
If so report line fault using link below.
