Question about GE 2-9450C Corded Phone
I can not get dial tone on any of my 4 lines on my GE 2-9450C phone. The intercom light is stuck on and I want to know how to fix this! Thanks!
I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they didn't lose power. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cut end of your cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the red post inside the surface mount phone jack. Now you have an "extension cable" that takes your one incoming line to both L1 and L2 on the phone: Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension.

You may need to assign an intercom ID for that unit by pushing one of the intercom buttons at the top.

My Intercom light started blinking red and green for some unknown reason. I tried all the suggestions, reset the phone & lost 32 presets with no luck. I finally took a small piece of black electric tape and stuck it over the blinking light. If the light is blinking and nobody can see it, is it really blinking?
