No dial tone

I get a no dial tone detected message. We had an electrical storm on the day begore the last daily call. This has happened before and I had to send my receiver back to Philips for repair. This is the fourth time. I have a surge protector on both the phone line and electric line. The phone line surge protector was installed after the third failure. Is there an inherent problem with the modems in Philips units? This is a Philips model # HDR212.

Well, at least you know it's most likely a failed modem ....

or save a quite a few $$$ by not buying the $69 weaknees modem and buy from auctionnook.com for only $30.

The last time this happened it screwed up my whole phone system. I couldn't use the phone until I disconnected the TIVO. This time my phones worked OK. This morning I went to the TIVO web site. They suggested I unplug the TIVO and phone line for 15 or more seconds. I did so and it now seems to work. Thanks to litzdog911 nnd mick66 for the quick replies. I'll keep this in mind the next time my modem gets fried.
