My calls fade out or cut in
and out when I am using
the telephone.
• If you have a headset plugged into the telephone,
try unplugging it and firmly plugging it in again.
• Disconnect the telephone base from the modular
jack and plug in another corded telephone. If calls
are still not clear, the problem is probably in the
wiring or local service. Contact your local service
company (charges may apply).
• If you are using the speakerphone when this
problem occurs, eliminate any background noise.
Noise from the television, radio, or other appliances
may cause the speakerphone to cut in and out.
Try engaging the [MUTE] button when you are not
speaking or eliminating the background noise.
