Sorry you are having trouble.

Can you reset the modem by using a toothpick or aballpointpento reach in to the small hole on the back of the modem to depress the reset  switch?  Hole the switch in gently until the lights go out , all except the power light , and then release and see if that helps.

Also try plubbing a wired phone in the L1 jack on the back of the modem to rule out house wiring issues.

Thank You

If you plugged a wired phone into jack LJ1 and didn't get a dial tone, then you should call Comcast.

Sounds like you might have a short in the wiring or perhaps a broken wire. You need a Phone Tech to sort it out for you.

Re: No dial tone, telephone 1 light blinking

I have had the same problem. It has happened 4 times over the last several months. I called Comcast support, but the problem continued. I had the inside wiring checked and no problem was found. Each time the problem went away by itself. It happened last night. I touched nothing, did nothing. 12 hours later, everything was working. So far, nobody has been able to provide an answer.
