Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  Nathan replied 9 months ago.

Can you tell me a bit more about the problem please:

1) If you have multiple handsets (within the same system), does this happen with all of them?
2) Are there other phones or even a fax, outside of this system but on the same line? If so are they working properly?
3) Is this a landline from the local phone/cable company, or a VOIP service (vonage/magicjack/etc)?
4) Do you have dsl service on the same line?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
1) yes with all of them.
2) No
3) Local phone co.
4) No

Thank you for the information,

Can you please test one more thing for me: Unplug the phone line to the panasonic base station, then call your home number form an outside line or cell phone. Do you still get a busy signal there?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I still get a busy signal when the base station phone line is unplugged.

Thank you for checking.

This is not a panasonic issue then, your line is at fault, there is an issue with the switching equipment on the phone companies end, so you will need to call the phone company and ask them to send a tech out to repair the issue that lies in their equipment.

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service as this is the only way I am credited for my time. Hopefully I have earned 5 Stars but if not please let me know what I can do to ensure you are satisfied. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at and ask for Nathan.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,
