New phone, works but does not ring.

I have purchased a new phone, it is working fine but on one extension it works but does not ring out when a call comes through. Any ideas what this could be, it can be used for calls etc. but just doesn't ring?

A lose wire in the extension? incompatible extension socket to phone?

Re: New phone, works but does not ring.

is it a particular extension socket that has a problem - does it work when using the master socket? or test socket?

Re: New phone, works but does not ring.

If it works in your master socket, then there must be a fault somewhere in your extension wiring, broken wire perhaps?

 

There is some help here http://www.telephonesuk.co.uk/wiring_info.htm

Thanks I will try and figure out the wiring.

Works fine in main socket, just doesn't ring on the extension.

Re: New phone, works but does not ring.

check the wires are not loose on the back of the bottom half of the main socket and in the extension socket
