Re: adjusting contrast on phone

To adjust the contrast, you have to hit the store button, then the arrow keys, which are the two little keys next to the caller id screen. you will then scroll thru the menu. it will eventually come to the contrast. then you use the arrow keys to move it to a darker shade. and hit store again, to store it.

I have a Aastra Telecom 9316CW Corded Phone and I have lost my manual. I need to know how to turn the light back on in the window. Please, please let me know or tell me how I can find out. Thank you. ...

Do you mean the feature light or the backlight for the display? The feature light can be set to on or off.

To set the light, press Save then 1 (for light on) or zero (light off). Press the desired memory key to associate with the feature and then enter the code from your telephone provider for that feature. Press Save and then label the memory key.

To use the feature light, press the memory key (as selected above) and then lift the handset. Press either Handsfree or Mute. The feature and the light will turn on or off. When the phone is not in use, then Feature On will be seen in the display.

The backlight is not adjustable. You can adjust the contrast with the Contrast button. Backlights do fail over time (but it's not a repair I recommend if the phone is out of warranty).

The manual is available here: . Look at the bottom of the center section for the PDF.

I hope this helps.

Display contrast - too dark

You should be able to adjust LCD contrast when phone is idle, just use the up/down arrow button to adjust it (don't go off-hook). If you have background music set, the above procedure will adjust the music volume instead. You can turn Background music on and off by pressing <Feature>,2,6 when your phone is idle. Alternatively, you may press <Speaker> 6,0,2 and then use the UP/Down arrow key to adjust LCD contrast.

Difficulty reading screen

As an FYI....The arrow keys control many things,
If not in use, they control the contrast.
If ringing, it adjusts ringing.
when using handset or speaker, it adjusts volume.
