Cordless phone----no dial tone

I have a Uniden cordless phone(model EXP91) which has no dial tone. Thinking the battery (BT905) was dead, I bought a new one, let it charge 36 hours, and still have no dial tone. The "power" and "charge" buttons light up, as does the "in use" button when I try to use the phone, but still get no dial phone. What are the other possibilities?

Does the phone jack work where you plugged the handset into?

check the cord from the wall also

best to unplug the cord from the back of the cordless and verify DT with a known good phone.

well if you have DT going to the phone and no DT from the phone time to trash it and buy a new one they are disposible and not worth repairing .

(one other thing ot try is take the battery out of the handset , unplug the base from the elcectric and phone and leave it for a few hours then power it back up , probably wont make a diffrence but I would try it where it mine )
