Question about NorStar Meridian 9516 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Inherited a NT5B05 3x8 with my house and I'm flumoxed...

Hi, Apparently the previous owner of our new house had a home-based business because there's a nicely-installed NT5B05 phone system in the basement (there were also about 4 digital satelite splitters but that's another story) and I have no idea how to make this system work. It didn't come with a manual and I still haven't found one on the web (still looking). I can provide pictures of the install for reference. There is an outlet on the junction box outside of the NT5B05 with a connected line labelled "home".
I happen to have a Meridian 9516 phone in my posession from a long-past home office I had.
My questions are: - should I use the NT5B05 seeing as how I'll only be using it as a home phone? (I have kids, one of whom - a daughter - is 9 so I imagine multiple lines might one day come in useful) or get rid of it/bypass it?
- if "yes" to "keep it", how do I program it? i.e. I'd love to have my hold music selection.

- will the 9516 and any normal cordless phone work with this system?
- does this unit use a lot of electricity?
Much thanks in advance!

By the year 2012 or 2013 it's not likely you will pay $20-30 for an additional land line instead of $10 for a cell phone :-)

The cabinet is a Digital Compact 308 for 3 outside lines and 8 digital extensions without caller ID. The system uses M7208/7310 and possibly 7324 phones. If you fetch $100 for it on eBay, I'd be amazed. Here's a stolen link to someone who has a description of one.

So you have purchased a house and have not ensured you had vacant possession. Its your problem now and not the previous owners. You have basically inherited a unwanted tenant. You should seek legal advice about collecting rent and also starting the process to evict the tenant. Probably wise to get some insurance on the property. The legal person should advise you.

Most alarm panels connect to the phone line near the "demarcation" where it comes into the house. You should see an RJ-31X phone jack there with an 8 wire modular plug. Unplug it and that should stop the dial out.

Radio works in the car cradle but not in the house cradle.

I posted on this myself looking for solutions, and then discovered the solution myself. The base pin connectors at the bottom of the receiver apparently become loose, and in order to make a good connection you need to push/pull the top of the receiver forward to achieve a connection. I first developed this problem in the home cradle, and used the car cradle in the house, then had the same problem with the car cradel. I fix it by jamming something between the receiver and car cradel at the top to force and hold it forward). In the home base, I pull it forward at the top, and prop it that way with something heavy behind it. No one ever posted on how to take the unit apart and actually fix the loose connection.
