Samsung Prostar 816 Phone System

I recently purchased a business that has a Samsung Prostar 816 phone system in it. The previous owner left all the manuals for this (tech, admin, user.) I was wanting to change some of the settings, but it calls for a password that i do now have. Is there a way to obtain this password, or reset the system to a default password? I really dont want to have to pay to have a company come out just to reset this for me, but i do not see any way of doing this in the manuals. Thanks in advance for your help!

By default, the password is 1234.
If you need to reset the default data:
Remove the front cover from the ksu. There is a memory on/off shunt switch toward the bottom right side of the pcb. (looks like a small wire hooked under another). Open that switch. If you need to use something to do this with make sure that it is non conductive.
Remove power briefly, return power to the system and the default data will replace all other data. Close the shunt switch and go about your programming. NOTE: you will loose all custom programming by doing this and unless you know the features you need and what they are called I would recommend you not reset the cabinet.

Good Luck,

Hi the samsung prostar has a comfort tone when on hold, which is basically a beep which just lets callers know that their call hasn't been dropped, in order to get music you have to purchase an external MP3 player which then needs a telecoms engineers to program to the system, Sorry if this is not very helpful to you, however I have posted you a samsung prostar 816 training video, there are more of these on Youtube covering lots af topics which might be of help to you in the future.

Are there any models of the prostar that support caller id?

No. The Prostar 816 is a 1994ish analog system. It was replaced with the DCS digital systems and they do support CID. The phones are not interchangeable.

The battery is dead and will not maintain system programing after a power outage. If the battery is not replaced this problem will occur everytime the power goes out.

Some of the buttons don't work and the Hold function doesn't work

The Prostar 816 phone system can only use Prostar 816 phones. There is a rare larger Prostar system that can use other Prostar phones along with the 816 but typically was only installed in situations where more than 16 phones were needed. If you are looking at non-prostar phones like the Samsung DCS 12 then they certainly will not work.
