CISCO 7912 Ip Phone,Red lights are continuously on.

I am using Cisco 7912 IP phone as my my Voip device by connecting internet cable,It was working fine since last one month,But now since yesterday I have noticed that Red light on the Headphone and Two round lights on the base set (Where headset sits) are continuously on in red color.If I turn the power of the phone off and turn it on again ,These lights goes off for 20 to 25 minutes and then come back on a continuous basis.Where as they used to turn on for a short period of time when I used to get the call or when I used to save the settings after new configuration .If anyone have an idea why it is like this?, My phone is still working fine.
Thanks.

Well, in most Cisco VoIP phones those lights are used to tell you if you have a voicemail. Have you checked your vm and cleared any new ones? This might be your issue ;)

Cisco 7960 turns it self off


Do you have a power block for the phone or are you getting power from a POE switch via cat5 cable?
How do you know you purchased a working phone? When was the last time the phone worked properly?

Any other information you can supply about your VoIp setup would help us troubleshoot the power issue with your phone.

Why can't I connect my corporate Cisco IP Phone 7941 to a switch? I can connect a switch to Cisco phone switch and connect multiple devices. But the phone will only work when connected directly to the wall...


Connecting a hub or switch to the "PC" port on the back of the phone is not a recommended best practice by Cisco as the IP phone does not support spanning tree protocol.

No dial tone on cisco 504G phone


to use an Ethernet phone you will need a VOIP supplier ( You will need to Google this for the country you are in ) . You will not be able to use it until you have these set up. Ethernet phones are not like a standard home phone which use your local exchange to route your calls they use servers on the internet to do that and route your call to landlines.
I hope this helps if so please give me a thumbs up

Can I use a CISCO IP 7941 phone, that has been on a company network, in my home? Should it just work by plugging in a telephone connection and using the appropriate power supply? Is there programming that...


Yes, there is programming which would need to be removed. However, you would need a cisco call manager($800) at home. Unless of course you have voip in your home. then you could just set it to DHCP I'm assuming and then it should just work!

Cisco IP Phone 7940 and 3com nbx as 3rd party SIP phones


Here are the instructions for configuring these units for 3cx

Since the 3cx softphone worked well, I don't see why you couldn't configure each as for 3cx and make them work as well.

7906G Home VOIP installation Problem


Then you need power adapter for Cisco 7960 IP phone ( -40V DC).
Cisco phones work best with Cisco, and sometimes ONLY Cisco switches.

One question which voice gateway you will use for your 7960 VoIP phone calls to go through ?
(AT&T probably supports only their IP Phones with special and usually hidden settings from end user)
