Question about AT&T Lucent MLS-12D Phone

1 Answer

Phone goes to auto answer and I cannot get it out of that mode.

Display says to change battery with power on and I cannot find the battery. I have had the phone system (partner plus) for 17 years and have never dealt with this.
Thank you,
Mike Smith

Mike,

That message is displayed when the 2 aa batteries go dead on a partner ACS. The batteries are located on the "main" card on the bottom front below the plugs for the phones.It has a black slide bar that you push up to get the battery module out.Make sure you put the batteries in as shown on the module. Replace when finished. hope that helps.

Our HP 2140 fax under distinctive ring setting DRPD was answering under our Master ring (double Ring) until yesterday it switched inside somehow where it now answers regular phone ring instead of...


Was the fax plugged into another telephone line? Maybe a power surge?

My solution would be to reconfigure the fax from scratch to learn the ring pattern.

From the Manual:

Step 1-Teach the HP Fax the ring pattern

The HP Fax will learn the ring pattern when you call it from another telephone or fax
machine.

1. Be ready to call the fax machine.
2. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press OK.
3. Use LEFT ARROW - RIGHT ARROW BUTTONS to scroll through the options until DRPD Mode displays and press OK.
Call this fax from another fax machine... Waiting Ring...
will display.
4. Call the HP Fax.

DRPD OK will display when the pattern has been learned and the HP Fax will return
to Ready mode.

Step 2-Set up distinctive ring (DRPD) answer mode

Once you have activated distinctive ring, it becomes one of the answering modes you
can select by pressing the Mode/Contrast button.

Press Mode/Contrast repeatedly until DRPD Mode appears in the display.

• In Ready mode, DRPD appears in the right hand corner of the display.
• Now, the HP Fax will manage calls and faxes as if it were set to AUTO mode
(AUTO mode on page 28)


TIP: Distinctive ring must be set up again if you reassign your fax number
or connect the machine to another telephone line. Once set up again (that
is, the fax machine has learned the ring pattern and the answering mode is
correctly set), you should test the fax machine by calling the fax number
and another number on the same line. The machine should respond
appropriately to a call placed to the fax number with fax tones, and to a
normal telephone call with the expected ring pattern.

THE CAMERA GOES DEAD VERY SOON WHEN IT TURNS ON. IT HAS GOOD BATTERIES.


Hi, I've scoured the 3 page manual and come up with this.:-
There is nothing wrong with your camera. The camera has a built-in power saving
feature that turns the camera off after 30 seconds of inactivity (default setting) to
conserve battery power. The auto off time setting can be changed in the set up menu.
Changing the Auto Off Time Setting:
1. Set the camera to Camera Mode.
2. Press the Menu button to display the main menu.
3. Press until the Setup is highlighted.
4. Press to enter the Setup submenu.
5. In the Setup menu, press to highlight “Auto Off Time”.
6. Press to enter “Auto Off Time”. Press to highlight the time you want.
7. Press the OK button to save your selection.
Hope this helps

Speaker phone indicator will not go off


Liooks like you have the phone programmed to "Handsfree answerback" this will cause the handsfree light to flash continiously.
In this mode the phone will auto answer any internal call from another extension.... so watch out.
To switch this mode off press the program button above the displey & you be given th option to switch "Auto Answer off " I think it's the first option, try it.
