Re: Speaker is turned off??

Your telephone is probably ok but there is some system programming to turn the handsfree feature on. The procedure to do this is as follows: 1. Find the port number of the extension by pressing Feature 4 at the problem phone. The display will show the 2 digit port number and the extension number; remember the port number. 2. Enter program mode by pressing Feature #0*8974 3. Press Line Key 4 4. Dial 29 5. The display will show 01/29:HFU YES/NO ; with 01 being the first extension port number in the system. Press the Conference key until you see the port number we need to change. 6. When you reach the correct port number, make sure the cursor is all the way to the right by pressing the # key until it is there. 7. Press Line Key 2 to change the entry to yes. 8. Press transfer to write the new data. 9. Press Speaker to exit programming mode. If you wish to call me I can step you through this free of charge. My number is 850-326-0394.

When my MIC/HFAI button is lit (green) - I can hear people that intercom to me - but they cannot hear me unless I pick up the handset. How do I fix this?

Turn up the volume on your speaker phone. You also have to push a button to turn your intercom speaker on.

This prevents somebody from listening in on your office conversations without your knowledge. Consult your phone manual.

Can not hear dial tone or hear caller / can hear on speaker call

Most likely that it is the speaker on the handheld part of the phone. Your sound comes from the base itself when you put your current connection on Speaker-Call. So if you cannot hear the dial tone OR the person on the other end unless on "speaker" it's just the handheld and I believe there are places online you can purchase JUST that part if needed.

My phone rings but it will not answer i can't hear the person on the other end

If the other person can hear you, then the problem is with the earpiece on the phone. The phone rings using another speaker on the base unit. Swap the mic/earpiece handset unit with another phone and use with existing base unit, to narrow down the fault.

Speaker phone problem

It is possible. I have ATT 945(?) 4 line phones that communicate via a DSL-like signal between units to do special things like intercom, etc.

What I have in my setup is that I have a seperate line from the point of entry of my phone line to my DSL modem.

I then have TWO stacked DSL filters PER LINE that feed the main phone line running to all the phones.

Be AWARE that when using the speaker phone there is a modulation of the gains both directions. When you talk OR have a noisy background noise, the gain of the speaker is cut down to prevent feedback. And when you go silent, the speaker gain is increased for you to hear the other side of the call. Essentially it takes as much discipline as the old two-way radios... one talker at a time with these speaker phones AND very little background noise.
