Intermittent problem with the line

I have an intermittent problem with my line which crackles or you miss parts of a conversation because voices spoken or listened to keep coming and going all the time or the phone cuts out altogether
Telephone the help line which said that the line was OK at that moment as they did the other time I called keeps on happening on a daily basis every time we get a call.
Next door neighbour and other neighbours around this close all linked to the same local bt or open reach cabinet all tell me they have the same problem.
Neighbours called their own phone company who rent the line off of BT who got an open reach engineer out the next day and found that the local exchange or cabinet next to the house across the road from me all the phone line coverings have corroded away and that the wires are all damaged and corroding away or rotting away.
So the local road (culdisack) has to be dug up and the exchange and wires have to be replaced from that junction box to the next junction box or exchange, what i want to know is when will this be done as all the neighbours and i have been reporting it to BT for ages but it was not till next door got their company to investigate was the problem found.
How long till we have to wait for a repair and better lines back to a good service, Months, years. when?
It would not be so bad but i have a lifeline connected to my phone so if i am in trouble it calls for help but with the fault with the line half the time it cannot get a single message or call out and before now i have been left on the floor for ages before someone came back home to get me off the floor as the box just said the phone line was disconected and could not get a dial tone or call out.

  • Problems with the line chart - dashboard

    I have a problem in the line chart in the dashboard SP4.
    Clicking on the legend of the graphic , the serie (line) disappears. Clicking again in the legend, the line appears but the markers don’t.
    Someone knows how to solve this problem?
    Follow the examples.

    Hi Jane,
    This is definitely the tool problem.
    Might be you can try restarting xcelsius or your computer (sometimes it works, really !)
    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to clink on legends.

  • Why am I having intermittant problems with my Galaxy Note 4 touch screen?

    I've had my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for two days now and have noticed intermittant problems with the touch screen.  I've even added more touch screen sensitivity in the settings area and it has NOT helped at all.  Sometimes I can tap on the screen repeatedly and find the phone not respond, then all of a sudden it responds.  As I keep using the touch screen...suddenly it stops responding again.  It's extremely frustrating especially when it's a brand new phone.  I have now found several other reports of this on the internet, but have not found a fix.  Suggestions (besides reset to factory settings and install each app one by one and test the phone)?  Since it's an intermittant problem, it's hard to tell if any particular app is the sole contributing factor to this.  Based on my experience and that of others...this appears to be a fairly common "bug" that we consumers are experiencing.  Help!?

  • Satellite A300-202 - problems with the AC power

    I bought a Satellite A300-202 a couple of months ago and I'm having intermittent problems with the AC power.
    Sometimes I plug the AC power and it won't start charging (the indicator leds are off and windows says it is on battery). Other times it is charging and suddenly stops.
    I suspected it could be the cord broken in the inside but it seems to also happen when no one touches it. Usually, when it stops charging, I unplug it from the wall, wait a few seconds and plug it back in, and it starts charging fine never stopping again.
    Anyone got a similar problem? I wonder if is there any way to just replace the AC power parts so I won't have to send the whole laptop for reparing.

    I never had a problem with my Toshiba chargers but one old non-Toshiba AC adaptor died after 6 month of usage. After the replacement it works without any problems.
    I think you should check the BIOS update as mentioned by Akuma but for me it sounds more like a AC adaptor issue.
    So if the BIOS update doesnt help, the AC adaptor should be checked definitely.

  • Intermittent problem with voice mail

    Siince I had a new system installed two years ago on my phone, I have intermittent problems with the phone which tech support does not want to resolve.  They says that unless they see it, it is not their problem.  Nice attitude. 
    I call voice mail, and it doesn't recognize my pin.  I try it again, doesn't recognize the pin.  Then I enter my phone number.  Doesn't recognize the phone number, tells me that I don't have a voice mail on my phone.  I hang up, and call again.  This time I do get through with the phone number.  I hear my message.  Now I can't erase the message.  I have to call back to hopefully get through to the message. 
    It is ridiculous.  I am ready to cut all phone service to my house if I don't get this fixed.

  • Downloaded Mt Lion.  Now my facetime launches then quits with message that there is a problem with the  C_L Kernel Plugin.  Everything else works just fine. I can get on line etc.

    I have have an early 2008  imac 8,1  It has been a good machine no problems.  UNTIL we downloaded Mt Lion. We can no longer use facetime.  We click on the icon it comes up, tries to connect then it disappears with the message that there was a problem with the C_L Kernel Plugin.  We can go on line without difficulty, everything else seems to be working.  Searching the internet shows that others have had the same problem with Mt Lion. But so far I haven't found a solution.  We have wiped the drive reloaded snow leopard then downloaded Mt Lion again. We put in a NEW hard drive and reloaded snow leopard then Mt Lion. We have changed out ram using apple ram. But we still get the same result. Everything works except for Facetime.  Is there some patch we have missed?  Facetime DOES work on our ipads without a hitch so I doubt it's the internet connection.  We've tried the imac both wirelessly as the ipads run and hardwired and get no where fast.  So any help at all would be appreciated.  We live in the boonies, the nearest mac repair is over 150 miles away so this is pretty nuch a do it myself affair.  We know the machine is old by most standards today. But we pretty much run our machines until they can't power up.  So we'd like to get this one back on its perch so to speak with its face time working.
    Thank you ahead of time for any advise help given.

    I’m having an intermittent problem with my midi controllers triggering Mainstage 3.
    I’m using a PreSonus Firebox audio interface.
    It’s been working fine for months, but now when I first turn on the computer in the morning , I’m not able to trigger MainStage from the keyboard.  I tried different midi controllers, different keyboards, different midi cords, and check midi preferences.  The audio interface is working fine and is recogonized, but the midi doesn’twork.  I re-started the computer several times and then finally it miraculously starts working again.
      I’ve been having to this every day now.  Any help or ideas is very much appreciated.

    I Had the same problem with a FireStudio. Try unplugging the FireWire plug and the power plug. Wait for a few seconds, then plug both back in. The light on my FireStudio was flashing blue/red which means "not connecting." I did what I just described, and everything works again. Hope it works for you.

    I'm having a problem with the stabilization all of a sudden. I did an analyze. The amount of shake isn't terrible but it's there. There are no squiggly lines in the clip I'm trying to stabilize. As you can see in the screenshot that it allows me to click the "Smooth clip motion" but the slider is not there for zoom. Any ideas why this is happening all of a sudden? It happens on all clips in this event. The entire event was analyzed after importing.

  • Problem with the progress line in MS Project

    Hi there,
    I have a question about the progress line in MS Project. 
    My boss asked me to see how far we were with the work, so I inserted the column '% Complete' and then the progress line.
    Now my boss has a problem with the layout and I don't know how the fix it. The problem is at line 43 and 44, where the progress line indicates that we are behind on that group of tasks. But is it possible for the progress line to not indicate it on lines
    43 and 44 but only on lines 45 to 50? So my question is if it's possible to make the progress line go down (vertically) over line 43 and 44 instead of jumping to the back? 
    It would be much more simple if I could insert lines 43 ad 44 as text but not as a task, so that it just counts as a title of some tasks but nothing more than that. Is that possible in Project?
    (Lines 45 to 50 are subtasks for line 44, and 44 is a subtask for 43. So line 43 is the main task.)
    Normally there was a picture here but I couldn't upload it because my account is not yet verified... So hopefully you can understand the problem with the text. 
    If anyone could give my some advice or the solution, that would be great!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Thunderbal66--
    Basically your activity 43 is late because the sub tasks are also late. Thus MS Project shows the situation by moving the progress line backward. The progress line is automatically displayed based on your project progress, there is no way to manually change
    it unless you update your project.
    I think the question is not there. This is more a matter of project governance and transparency: why not showin that a project is late when it is late and taking the appropriate corrective actions?
    Hope this helps,

  • Lightroom 5, Mac. Problem with the Radial Tool. Marquee Lines disappear.

    Lightroom 5 Mac. Problem with the Radial Tool. I use this tool a lot. I must have hit a hot key by accident because between photos the marquee lines have disappeared and i don't know how to get them back. Without the marquee lines there I cannot rotate or expand the radial tool.

    I have attempted to uninstall, empty trash and a fresh download from Adobe. The problem is still there...

  • HT4628 Intermittent reception when streaming music via Airport Extreme and Airport Express to powered speakers. Is this a problem with the Extreme?

    i get intermittent reception when I stream music from I Tunes via Airport Extreme and Airport Express to powered speakers. I Tunes continues to play uninterupted on the Mac.  The problem does not lie with the Express as it occurs on both of my 2 Express at the same time. is this a problem with the Extreme?

    Well, repying to my own post... Might have found the solution: I tried to do the same with a Macbook Pro 2010 using the very same setup. And it worked perfectly! No freeze, no nothing.
    One explanation I see:
    my iMac is dating back to May 2007, a Core 2 Duo 2,16Ghz with 2 Go of RAM.
    So the computer's characteristics (or the Wifi component or the combination of all of this) might be not robust enough to allow streaming to those 2 devices...
    Anyone's got anything to add?

  • I have bought a docking station and my iphone works fine but my ipod mini seems to fit on the connection but only works intermittently. Is it a different connection or is there a problem with the ipod?

    I have bought a docking station and my iphone works fine but my ipod mini seems to fit on the connection but only works intermittently. Is it a different connection or is there a problem with the ipod?

    I think that is happening is that the microphone is on during this recording.  If you play the music through the iPhone speakers, it will record this sound, albeit at very poor quality.  If you say anything (or laugh uproariously as I did while watching the app in action, then that, too, get recorded.
    I am still looking for the solution we all want, which is to save the audio in reasonable quality.
    Anyone out there with some ideas?

    You have 14 days to return the computer w/no questions asked.  Plus you have 90 days of FREE phone tech support on top of your standard 1 year warranty unless you also purchased AppleCare which gives you an additional 2 years of coverage plus FREE phone support.
    Strongly suggest that you take FULL advantage of the above before it runs out.  Let Apple deal w/the problems.
