Question about Lucent AT&T 960 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Display issue A number of time when we get an incoming call the display on the phone starts blinking with what looks like squares. In order to fix I need to disconnect the power from the phone, remove the batteries, put them back in and then reconnect power. What can be causing this and is there another way to correct?

Re: display issue

This happens on our AT&T 962 & Lucent 965 telephones. The phones don't all do it at the same time and the only way to clear the trouble is to unplug the telephone, remove the batteries and then put everything back together again.

When a call comes in, it shows my number

Is this happening just to you or are other employees experiencing the same issue? - it's nothing you did - These days it is very easy to "SPOOF" the calling party number to display whatever the caller wants it to display. If it's occurring on all of your incoming calls then contact your PBX system support person/company.

Some Panasonic cordless phones come with up to five handsets each will need to be properly adjusted. You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones MORE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR ALL YOUR ELECTRONICS When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

Incoming calls: When we receive an incoming call,

Extension call forwarding is controlled by a timer, and they put these things in the manual. If your CF after 2 rings is from a call to a specific extension, from that extension, dial *713 and a 2 digit number from 00-99 seconds on the intercom. Start with 18.

If your call forwarding is from intercept, then you have a system programming issue and need to look in the installer's manual or check with your system programmer.

Display showing "Incoming Call :001"

Don't worry, if you ignore it will grow :-)

It's a count of the unanswered calls with CID. If you take a spare button and program it for Call Log, it will light up and you press it to start the call log display.

Try this press PROG 54 STORE

When you press it, your display will now reveal the numbers under incoming.

If you put a number after the 54, it will log calls for a particular group. I get my calls on incoming group 100, so I store 54 100 under a button and I can see all system calls. I have a second button for just my extension calls.

KX-T7730 Picking up Problem

You are on the right track but the extension number is not " 0 ". There is an extension number associated with the operator phone just as your phone may be " Extension 101". If you have a display phone have the operator call you and look at your display for her/his extension number then when their phone is ringing, pick up your handset, dial 4 plus the extension number of the operator. Let me know how it works out. .....Mitelmike

Lost the time and date line in the display

Unplug the phone, wait one minute, then plug it back in and see if the display comes back on. Press the program button, press 22 on the dial pad, press program button again ( if the phone is ringing on the incoming call and not just flashing).
