SOURCE: Polcom phones stop ringing

Dear Sir/Madam,

1) After rebooting you can watch your ftp server and see the phone logging in and logging out. Its doing several things (checking the size of the bootrom.ld and sip.ld files and seeing if an update is necessary, etc etc) that I will go over later. It will reboot a couple of times to finish off the update.

2) After the reboots, lets be absolutely sure and lets check the bootrom and SIP versions.

  • Press the Menu button, 2 Status, 1 Platform, 1 Phone. Arrow down to view the BootRom version here.
  • Press the Menu button, 2 Status, 1 Platform, 2 Application, 1 Main. You will be able to view the "Version" number here.

If you did everything right, you should see the latest versions of the bootrom and SIP app that you had placed on your ftp site.

Now check your FTP site. You will notice that there are files being uploaded to your directory with *.log extensions. You guess it, these are just logs that the Phone dumps so you can trouble shoot when need be. If everything was done right, your phone will of seen the new bootrom.ld file and downloaded it, rebooted, and installed it. Next it will download your new sip.ld file and use it.

SOURCE: polycom ip501f error, application is not

Make sure you have the latest BootROM and SIP config files for this polycom(sip.ld, sip.cfg, etc...) on your TFTP server. If you do not have this - download from here - http://www.polycom.com/support/voice/soundpoint_ip/soundpoint_ip501.html

If you do not have a TFTP server, you can download one for free.

SOURCE: failed to get boot parameters via DHCP

You didn't provide any information about your network which is ALWAYS required to provide any type of help, not to mention a solution.

"Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP, xxx seconds until reboot" simply means that the computer isn't getting an IP address from your router. Setting up your router is another entirely separate topic.


This is pretty simple though, one of three things is happening:

1. Your router is not properly configured to provide DHCP to the phone.
2. Your network cable is bad.
3. Your phone is bad (most likely the RJ45 port since the phone seems to work otherwise).

You can check for bad ports or cables by checking the port status within the router. If the port is lit up, most likely the cable and phone port are fine. This is not 100% though, replacing the cable should always be a consideration even with a lit port.

SOURCE: what is the default password for Polycom

Default Passwords:
To get into the web interface, the default username/password is "Polycom"/"456" (Note that this does not work with Safari 1.2.2.)
To get into the Admin interface on the hard phone, the password is "456". (Prior to v1.3.1, the web interfaces to the phone uses "Polycom"/"SpIp" as the username/password.)
The "user password" (not used much) defaults to "123".

To reset a lost admin password to default: at phone boot, during the 5 second countdown, push/hold 468* on the phone. Enter the phone's MAC address as the password. This will reset network info but keep peers loaded. Tested on Soundpoint IP 650.

SOURCE: Polycom IP 330 SIP C Will not boot up

This means the phone's SIP application has been erased. You will need to download the SIP app and BootROM from the Polycom support page, host the files on a boot server, and then point the phone to this server from the server menu so the phone will reboot and download the files.

How do i conferance call on a polycom voicestation 300


The conference call feature is not part of the phone, but part of your telephone network. In some systems you press a sequence of keys to conference in another member such as flash #02 but it depends on what telephone network you use. Contact your IT admin and ask how to trigger the feature on that analog line.

Polycom SE225: my verizon line provide caller id does not displa


Due to the age of the SoundPoint Pro, it some of its features are not compatible with newer phonesystems, such as CableVision. There are no software updates for the SoundPoint Pro, and as long as the Caller ID is enabled there are no other settings or adjustments that can be made to workaround these kind of problems unfortunately. I recommend contacting your service provider to see what kind of caller ID signaling they are using; most likely they will be using a newer digital system, or MDMF which is not backwards compatible with SDMF or earlier CID receivers.

Polycom SoundPoint 550-Only Showing 1 line


On the phone, press the menu button, then status, then IP status or whatever and get the phone's IP address. Write the ip address down. On your computer, open up a web browser and input the phone's IP address into the address bar and press enter. This should arrive you at the web gui for that phone. It'll probably ask you for login credentials; by default, the name is "Polycom" (yes , it is case-sensetive) and the password is 456. Once you are logged in, you should see several links like "General" "Network" "Sip" and "Lines". click on Lines. under "line 1", you will see the configuration for that line. simply duplicate the entries for lines 2, 3, and 4.

How do I conference call on a Polycom Voicestation 400?


Conference call is not a feature of the phone, but a feature of the telephone system in the company. Usually you press a sequence of keys like flash #02 to trigger this function in the phone system. If your company phone system does not offer the feature then you have to use an external conference call provider.

Connecting a polycom


No, i don't think si. The polycom needs an ethernet connection to a router. You might get this working by putting the 3g card into a PC and enabling connection sharing, however even if you got it work itsd a bad solution in terms of:
- Cost
- Reliability
- Security.
ADSL would be better.

Try adjusting the ringer volume, dial tone volume, and speaker volume. Make sure that the ringer type selection is not set to off. Also make sure that you are not bridging your call.

You can also use the Upgrade feature built into the phone to look for updates which may resolve your issue.

If this has only started happening recently, Restore the default settings and see if it resolves your issue.
