    Hello people. I have a phone at home that uses the electronic type of
    ringer (piezo) and will not ring. This phone can receive an incoming
    phone signal as a red flasher (mounted on the unit's base) will go
    off when the signal in coming in through the jack but there is no
    sound coming from the ringer. Is there a practical way to fix the
    ringer or should I just toss the phone and forget it?

    Thanx to all who help,
    Bruce

    Sometimes there is a ringer switch on the bottom.

    Or the piezo is dead!, simply find one at your local electronics store and try it out, it
    won't do you any harm, and it will keep your dandy flashing phone out landfill!

    Or plug in a dead phone that still has a working ringer.
