Hi JNk6298

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

As the line tests are clear then we would be unable to pass this straight to a line engineer. If a fault was detected then we could pass this to Openreach.

 

I have ordered a replacement router for testing, please allow 24-48hrs for this to arrive. Let us know how the connection compares with this router.

 

Thanks

 

Debbie

Hi Debbie,

The last time we had this type of issue a BT engineer came to the area & "did something" to the main box in the street.

But, we will try a new router if you think that will help.

Thanx again

Hi Justine

 

Would you like me to send a replacement router for testing to rule out any possible router faults?

 

Thanks

Hi. As I explained earlier, our village is on lockdown & we can not go to others houses, therefore we can't get another phone to try.

Thanx

Hi JNk6298

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Would it be possible to test with a different phone directly at the test socket, with the router removed from the line to see if the noise is still present in this set up?

 

Thanks

Hi,

The line is still a bit crackly.

The TV is connected wirelessly - still freezes during playback.

The internet at times is a bit slow.

Unsure of internet speeds

Thanx

Hi Justine,

 

Ok, thanks for confirming. I've re-run the line test now which is still clear and the connection looks stable and the sync speed also looks consistent. Just to confirm, is the crackle still present at the moment? Is it only the TV which is experiencing issues? How is the TV connected, wired or wireless?

 

What speeds were you previously receiving?

 

Thanks

Hi Michelle,

Same issues.

Unfortunately we are unable to get a landline phone from a neighbour to test our line, due to Covid local restrictions.

Thanx

Justine

Hi JNk6298,

 

How are you getting on?

 

Thanks

 

Message 14 of 20

Ok

I'll see if I can get hold of another phone.

Still don't understand why playback on BBC keeps cutting out if the lines are ok??

Hi

 

If you do not have access to another handset, you could ask a friend or neighbour to test your handset in their socket to make sure it is ok.

 

If we send an engineer for a crackly line, and the line is fine and it's the handset thats at fault, you would incur a call out charge, so just trying to make sure this does not happen.

 

Thanks  

 

Karl.

Hi

 

All line tests are clear.

 

Can you unplug everything out of the phone socket and make sure you test an alternative or known working phone handset directly at the master socket or 'Test Socket' if you have one, so we can proceed towards an engineer for you.

 

Thanks  

 

Karl.

Hi,

I've done all the tests & they say no faults, but our landline is very crackly.

All devices are connected wirelessly.

Hi @JNk6298 ,

 

Are your devices connected 'wired' or 'wireless' ?

 

It would be worth going to the Service Centre to do a test on your phone line, this will indicate if there is currently a fault on your line. You can also access this from the ‘My Account’ site.

 

Also, if you have a landline phone can you check to see if that is working normally (i.e. you have a clear dial tone and no noise on the line).

 

The TalkTalk staff on this community will also be able to help, they will hopefully be able to respond to this post within a day or two.
