I wonder if anyone can tell me why my phone should start crackling SO loudly that I am almost unable to hear the caller?
this has happend on and off over the years - we've done the usual troublshooting - checked cables, changed phones, bought new phones but after an absence of almost a year, its back with a vengance!
My elderly and deaf parents cannot hear me over the noise!
any help would be most welcome, thanks
have you tried phone in test socket to eliminate anything in your internal wiring causing a problem? if still same in tset socket then phone 151 and get engineer visit
then contact 151 and report a phone fault to get engineer visit
Plug a know working, fault free phone (preferably corded not cordless) directly into the master socket test port, dial 17070 and take the quiet line test, if any 'noise' , report the line as noisy to the landline provider.
