Any ideas on what could be happening... or what I could do to this phone?
Is it plugged in? AC power I mean..(not being a smart ass) or is it driven by the phone line only. It may actually have a battery in it, if not power corded.
Hard to say. I would trouble shoot, by plugging it into other phone jacks and test it in another location.
Also bang it with your palm (soft part) and ensure there is not a dry joint on the display board (or light knuckle wrap if your prefer, right on the LCD display)
