Question about Phones
Bascially by screen is black and when i press the square button nothing comes up. The sounds work but I can't get it out of the black screen to unlock the phone
Sounds like your system defaulted. Only a few phones ring at system default and you may not have those ports connected. First, you need to figure out which Comdial Impact system you have. The phone will work on a few different Comdial systems. Find the main box and get a model number from that. You'll have to tackle re-programming ringing yourself or pay a local company to do it. If you do it yourself you will need the "programming and installation" manual specific for your system. A "user guide" will be of no use to you. You can search the net for "Comdial Digitech, Impact & Impression Programming & Installation Manual" Next, I would suggest a UPS backup for your system so this does not happen again. Unless you have a large carded system with dozens of phones, your phones require less power than a typical computer so a UPS made for a computer will be fine. The system will default either when the system memory battery goes too low or I have seen a few cases where power fluctuations will cause it (like when the power goes on-off-on-off rapidly in a storm) either way a UPS system with surge protection will help.

This is a phone system phone and each station you want to ring when a certain phone line rings has to be programmed into the system. This is not something you can change at the phone itself. You will either need to pay a company to make programming changes or locate a programming and installation manual for your phone system (not the phone) and try to re-program it yourself. If you have not done this before it will not be easy but it may be worth the effort so you can continue to make your own changes instead of paying someone $200 per hour to do it for you. There is also the remote possibility your phone's ringer is broken. You can try swapping your phone with another of the same type and model to see if it will ring.

OK, here's what happened. I had the same issue of the phone resetting when a call came in, I thought it was a power issue and through some testing it was not. Here's the fix...Menu \ system settings \ enter pin (if you haven't changed it it is 0000) scroll to factory default and reset. This fixed the problem somehow for me, make sure to write down any impotant messages because it will erase everyting (silly me). I hope this helps.

SOURCE: INCOMING CALLS
Not sure it this is a solution for ALL your problems, but...
I had a similar issue: Phone rings, caller ID info displays then seems to hesitate, then displays only "INCOMING CALL."
The issue seemed to be caused by interference with other devices on the same line (in my case, an alarm system).
Tech support had me change a setting on my TRU9466 base unit (this is one of the PowerMax 5.8ghz models). This is how we did it step-by-step on the base unit:
IN-USE LINE SETUP
select LINE 1
switch to TYPE B
This seems to have solved the Caller ID "interference" issue -- my Caller ID now displays as it should. The Tech Support person suggested trying that TYPE A/TYPE B setting on "OFF" if TYPE B didn't solve the problem, but thankfully, it did.
Now Cheryl, it sounds like your issue is more involved than this -- I didn't have any connection problems -- but perhaps they're related -- you might try my solution.

press down on the # key for a couple of seconds as this also unlocks the phone.(the key symbol isn't very clear but it is there.
plus you can find user manuals for most phones online.

The green lights next to the line or pool buttons show the current Line Ringing settings for all
lines or pools assigned to the extension. (If a line or pool is not assigned to a button, the green
light next to that button is off.) The following ringing options can be shown by the green light
next to the line or pool button:
? Immediate Ring - on steady
? Delayed Ring - flashes slowly
? No Ring - flutters quickly
3) Press the line or pool button until the button light shows the correct setting (the setting for the
currently selected line or pool also appears on the display).
4) Continue programming, or exit programming mode.
For incoming calls, the line selection (hunt sequence) is set by the local service provider). For outgoing calls....again....it depends on the system. For the Partner ACS:
1) Press FEAURE 00, SYSTEM PROG, SYSTEM PROG, CENTRAL PROG at extension 10 or 11.
2) Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Automatic Line Selection.
3) Press **.
4) Press the line, pool, or INTERCOM buttons in the desired order. The valid entries for Automatic
Line Selection depend upon the type of extension:
? Key Extension: Outside system lines, Left Intercom (the factory setting)
? Pooled Extension: Pool 880 button 1, button 2, Left Intercom, Right Intercom (the factory
setting), Pools 881-883, individual lines
For each button pressed, a display similar to the following appears:
Automatic Line Selection
5) To exit Automatic Line Selection, press **.
6) Press CENTRAL PROG and enter a new extension number, or exit programming mode.
Changing line ringing and line selection are tasks that are normally reserved for the Administrator of the telephone system.
