    The supplied telephone line cord has not been connected yet or not connected properly. Check the connections by making sure the line cord is secure. When you plug the phone line cord at the back of the phone make sure you hear it click. You can also try to have the telephone plugged on a different phone jack inside the house, if there is none, try to take it to a neighbor or friends house to be tested, to be sure you are not having a line problem.
