Phone will not ring

Have a Meridian M7208 was moved from one office to another office. Now phone doesn't ring on incoming calls. Is this something we will have to get someone to fix or can we fix it ourself? I have gone through our manual and haven't found a way to change that.

It's RINGING now! I followed the Set Programming instruction in our manual. It's in Configuration 3-21. It's a very old old Operator guide.
I am trying to find it online. In the mean time you can use the M7208 Phone Adminitration Overlay over the keys and program your phone by pressing Feature **266344
Here is a link to the overlay
Good Luck.

I have the Nortel BCM system and the problem is with a Norstar Meridian M7208 phone. This phone randomly rings (constant rings no pause between rings) and the only way to stop it is to unplug the phone...

I had that same issue before...

I turned the:
-> Autoset Relocate to On
-> then punched the set down on another port on the BCM system

I think it's just a bad port on the system...
The swap fixed my issue at my site. It was not a set problem, just something funny from the BCM.

Not too sure if you have the means to do that swap on the system yourself. But, it can be fixed.

Forwarding calls between extensions

Yes, press Feature 4, then enter the extension of the line you wish to forward the ring to. You can also go into the phone configuration to forward after a set # of rings. To ring another extension at set times you will need admin access.
