Question about Vtech Cordless 6041 Phone
The phone rings,screen displays caller id.when you press a button nothing happens.no buttons work
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Initially, might I suggest a reset, remove power from the mains (unplug) and remove any and all batteries. This would simulate a reset. In some versions, there is a reset button inside a pinhole just for this purpose. Of course, doing so would revert the unit back to factory defaults and all user settings, configurations, memory would be erased.
Another strong possibility is diry, corroded battery terminals or its just that the battery is nearing end of life.
Worst case scenario is a component failure which then would require the services of a qualified technician.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
