Land telephone sometimes fails

    I have a land line telephone that sometimes loses power soon after I pick up the phone. Otherwise, during a conversation, it works fine. I wonder if this is because the line leading to the phone is a little too long, leading to electrical power fade. Is it possible to supplement the phone power with electrical power from a/c? It only has 6P2C input.

    I would sooner think it was corrosion on the bare copper wires causing resistance, would clean them off at both ends.

    Is this a line (i.e. phone line) powered device?

    How long is the extension? Is it a 'ready-made-up' cable or something else?

    The POTS (plain old telephone system) uses DC and AC for operation.
