Question about IBM Corded Phone IBM412CID

1 Answer

Can't turn ringer volume down

My office has several IBM phones (I believe they are the IBM 412 4 Line corded phones) and we can't seem to figure out how to turn down the ring volume on individual phones. There is a volume button on the phones but this only seems to affect the volume of the phone line not the ringer. This seems like it should have a simple solution...are we blind?

How to I turn the universal volume on a Norton Networks T7316E Phone?

Have you tried to call the phone and adjust the volume on the set while the call is coming in? I think the only way you can adjust the ringer volume is if the phone is ringing.

The comdial digitech 7714s in the back office does not ring. The phones in the front. There is no on off ringer switch as there is on the executech. Can't find FAQ in the manual I downloaded


I believe the ringer volume is low or at minimal or turned off, that's why you don't here any ring. Try this; press the arrow (left and right or up and down button) on the phone constantly. This should increase the ring volume if actually it is low. Or, call the phone with another line, while the comdial digitech 7714s is ringing and press the arrow buttons without picking up the phone.

Try this as well;
  1. Press optionS
  2. NEXT (twice)
  3. RING
  4. Then UP or DOWN to choose a ring tone
  5. Press SPEAKER to set.
Let me know if this doesn't work, so that I may direct you further.

Good luck.

I have 4 KX-TG2740 units, each with 2 lines. One unit does not ring for line 1. It says "Ringer Off line 1". I can't figure out how to correct. Thank you.

Press CONF/FUNCTION key, scroll to Ringer Setting by using the up or down arrow of the center navigator key, then press the right arrow. Press the right arrow again at Ringer Volume. Press the down arrow to select Line 1. Press the up or down arrow to choose the ringer volume you want. Press the right soft key SAVE, a confirmation beep will sound.

The ringer volume can also be set while a call is ringing in on the line. Make a call to Line 1 number, use up or down arrow key while phone is ringing to adjust volume of Line 1 ringer.

The following link is for the manual in pdf format.

Phones do not ring

Check the DND button- it's the far right button on the top row. If DND is not on, your ringer volume is probably turned down.

The volume is set independently per line. To set the volume:

1. Press Conf, then using the dialpad, press either 1, 2, 3 or 4 to indicate which line you want to adjust.

2. Press one of the VOLUME buttons to increase or decrease the ringer volume.
