What does it mean when it says Check Tel Line?
Regarding this, why is my phone saying line in use?
It means one of your handsets are on, and holding your phone line hostage. This typically happens if someone put a cordless phone back in its cradle but forgot to press the "off" button. It could also happen if a pet accidentally knocked a phone on the floor and then stepped on it.
Likewise, what causes no dial tone on phone? Bring a phone and phone line to the box, and plug the line into the test jack. If there is no dial tone, the problem is with the phone or outside wiring. Bring out another phone to test. If there is still no dial tone, it is the outside wiring and a problem for the service provider.
Thereof, why is my phone line not working?
Plug the phone that wasn't working into the same jack that the working phone was using. Use the same cord that the non-working phone used. Check for a dial tone. If the phone still doesn't have a dial tone, then the phone itself is likely broken, or the cord isn't working.
