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.

Caller id would have to be truned on, in system programming, as long as the caller id card is installed. If it works for the corded phones and not the cordless phones than, the analog caller id feature needs to be programmed. check out ldtsnj.com

Caller ID Scroll


Your system needs to have a mif-m card and kmm chip installed and all programming setup in order to scroll through the caller id. If this is all setup you can hit the directory button and than use the arrow buttons under the display to scroll. ldtsnj.com
