Sorry if this is the wrong category, haven't a clue where this should go.Years ago I woke up one night to this wierd screeching noise coming from
near the bedroom door then I realised it was coming from my phone. The reciever was down but the power of whatever it was, was actually vibrating
the phone and allowing the sound to escape. When I lifted the telephone the noise was so unbearably loud it filled the entire room and I actually
thought the whole street could hear it, so I replaced the reciever and it went back to the original noise.At that time I had a normal BT telephone in
my living room and an extra telephone wired up with it, and the cable extending under the door, along the hall, and into my bedroom. The bedroom
phone was a modern (at that time) flip up phone, i.e. the keypad was on the part you held to your ear and a bit flipped out when you were talking.
It was a light-weight thing but how does that explain the noise escaping? I went through to the living room and lifted that phone and there again was
the terrible screeching. It sounded like an extremely loud fax, (you know when you phone a fax number instead of a phone number)Now, what can make a
telephone wake you up, without ringing and with the reciever down and make such a terrible racket?
