Re: Hold button doesn't work

If the hold button does not work, it's most likely a well used button that has gotten dirty. If you feel up to it (at your own risk) you can take the phone apart and clean both the circuit board contacts and the rubber keypad for the hold button using rubbing alcohol and a rag, q-tip or Cotton ball. This is not a permanent solution if you keep using that button a lot but it may last for years??

Transfer button and specific office intercom buttons no longer work.

It's tough to program on the old DK systems. If you have a newer CiX system:
>Leave phone on-hook
>Enter #9876 (Display: Programming)
>Press HOLD
>Press key to be programmed (only programmable keys on the right)
>Enter 610 plus the extension number
>Press the key to be programmed again (Display: Data Programmed)

Partner 18d phone wont program

Either you're not at ext 11 or you are pressing the RIGHT intercom button. It's FEAT 00 LIC LIC (where LIC is left intercom). If it doesn't work, try the same code from Ext 10. Also, you have to have an 18 or 34 button display set.

Intercom / page problem with AT&T phones model 944 and 955

Do you have DSL on this line? Make sure you have filters on the lines going to the phones or take the line coming out of your DSL modem and split it to the phones.

Also, try unplugging your fax, computer modem or credit card machine and test the intercom. Sharing one line for several devices can make the intercom unhappy.

Extension call

You need to page an extension.
To program this on a button:
press feature 00
press the intercom you want to change (EX: ext 10)
press the right intercom and *10
press feature 00

To use, just press the button you just programmed. It will grab intercom and dial *10. Conversly, you can press intercom *10 to do the same.

Intercom on one of the office phones has stopped working?

Press Feature * 0, then press the button you think is the 2nd intercom button. What does it say on the display?

Chances are that the button got erased. Do you know how to get into system admin programming?

Hold button drops calls GE 29488GE2

does this just happen with the one phone ?
if so, try swopping that phone with another of the same type and see if the problem transfers with the phone or remains at the original location, if it transfers, you have a faulty phone, if it remains, you have a fault in the switch associated with that port.

Problems with Intercom

Yes, you just need to program those buttons on your phone. Press "feature" then "redial" then press the button you want to program, then press "1" then it's extension # (example: 1-0-0 to program the button for extension 100) then press "feature". After you've programmed those extensions, the intercom should work.
