I hear static or an echo while talking on the phone

If you are hearing a static or an echo while talking on the phone, check to ensure that there isn't a problem with your telephone equipment. An echo causes callers to hear the sound of their own voice. Try the following steps to clear the problems:


Corded Phone
1. Unplug the phone from the wall jack.
2. Plug in a working phone into the jack.
3. Check to see if you still hear static.

Cordless Phone
1. Unplug the phone from the AC electric outlet and the jack.
2. Check to see if you still hear static on other phones.
3. If the problem goes away, repair or replace the phone you just unplugged.

If you are unable to clear the trouble, call our repair service at 374-1238 (Delmar customers dial local 574-1238).
