Re: My phone does'nt work

There might now be a problem with the phone at all. Call you telecommunications department and ask them to stat your TN and possible reset it. The switch could just be not operating correctly.

Re: My phone does'nt work

Be sure both the line cord and the handset cord are plugged in. If they are, plug a working phone into the dead phone's modular wall outlet. If it works, assume the problem is with the dead telephone. Try plugging the dead phone into a working outlet. If it works there, its cord or modular plug may be making a poor connection with the first modular receptacle. Switch cords with the working phone and try again. If it works, replace the cord. If it doesn't work with a good cord, plugged into a working outlet, the phone is probably defective. Further isolate the problem by substituting the handset from a working phone. If it works, repair or replace the dead phone's receiver. If it doesn't, repair or replace the entire phone. Be sure the switch hook isn't stuck down or jammed.

How can I just pick up handset and speak without having to press talk

You cannot do this with a cordless handset that I know of. You will have to go old school and get a corded phone for that to happen.

I need to reprogram one of my phones, when I plug it in nothing happens, I plugged it in to a dual outlet on another desk and it only works when that line is picked up and can only hear what the other...

Then that dual jack is just a loop of the other wire feeding the other extension. That is how it is supposed to work.

You will need to run a new wire for the new extension.

I need help programming the phone to pick up CO1

This is a guess because you still didn't tell me what system you're connected to. On an idle phone, try pressing PROGRAM 131 STORE. In a TA-824, that makes you select line 1. If it's busy, nothing happens.
