Are you certain the phone cable that is hooked up to it works? Can you try a different phone to make sure?

Have you checked the battery connection carefully for any broken wires or corrosion?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
have connected it to 2 outlets and it does the same thing
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 2 years ago

The issue then is the internal board is corrupted, the problem is there are no parts for the unit so really it can not be repaired I am afraid to say, please do not kill the messenger. You would have to purchase another one.

I would like you to know that I am a tech that works for the site, the payment you made to the site is not fully credited, further the only way I actually receive any payment for my time by the site is by you selecting a STAR using the 5 STAR RATING SYSTEM on your page before you leave.
