I have no problem with my Ring Doorbell 2. Make sure the diode is installed properly. If you have a transformer to power the doorbell the diode is necessary for proper functioning. Try reversing the wiring of the diode. Good luck.

Tried to work with The Ring support, now my regular door bell is destroyed and I will need to get a new one. They are sending me a new Ring but not a new doorbell. Now I need to hire someone to put in a new doorbell which is 9 feet up on the wall and pair it with the Ring, not worth all this trouble, but now I have no doorbell at all. By the time this is done, I'll spend 2 or 3 hundred dollars, what a waste of time and money.

I'm not exactly sure what the issue is your having. I have a Ring, and have installed them for others, with absolutely no issues. How do you know your existing doorbell is "destroyed"?

I got a wireless doorbell from Lowe's, works like a charm. I think it was around $49

If you use ALEXA they can now announce a doorbell ring "someone is at your "front" door" or announce motion at your front door. No doorbell needed.

I love my Ring doorbell. I was in New Zealand on a ship and my phone jingled at 4:30am. I looked at the video feed and saw my landscapers.What are they doing at my house at 4:30am. Whoops.. I was on New Zealand time.

We had the same problem with our Nest doorbell. Go into settings, look for chime duration and set it for Off.
