The filters are causing the problem. I ran into this same issue with a client. Once I removed the filter the hold function worked fine. It seems the DSL filter also filters out the frequency that the phones use to communicate with each other.

Make sure you have filters on the lines between your DSL and your phones. Use the line out from the back of your modem to split to your phones if you don't have any filters. You may have to take line 2 from the back of the DSL modem to send to all of the phones. This is usually a filtered source and should isolate your phones from the DSL. Put the filter on any other devices that are sharing line 2 too, fax, computer, credit card machine etc.

2 LINES PICK UP ON PANASONIC KX-TG4500


Sounds like you have the cords into the back of the phone mixed up. If you have a cord with 1 and 2 plugged into 1/2, great. But then if you have another jack also with 1 and 2, but plug it into 3/4, now you answer line 3 on second phone and line 1 lights up on first phone. Or line rings line 1 here and line 3 over ther. Gotta keep that straight and the jacks have to have identical lines.

My company has an Avaya phone system that uses Partner 18d phones. When you pick out the receiver the phone would go to one of our 4 outside lines, but recently on ext. 10 when you pick up the receiver it...


http://dstech1.com/changing-the-line-that-is-picked-up-when-you-lift-handset/

All releases of Partner
Lets say that you currently pick up line 1 to make an outgoing call, but you want to pick up your last line (in this case we will say we have 6 phone lines).
This feature is called "Auto line select"
To program Auto line select:
From extension 10 or 11:
Press feature 00
LEFT INTERCOM
LEFT INTERCOM
RIGHT INTERCOM
Enter the extension number of the extension you need changed.
press ** (start, star)
Then the order you want the lines to get picked up
Then ** (star, star) when done
When finished, press feature 00 to get out of programming.
So, in this example I would enter my extension number (22) and press ** (star, star) and press line 6, line 5, line 4, line 3, line 2, and line 1. Then I press ** (start, star) to signify that I am done programming Auto Line Select. And feature 00 to get out of programming.
Easy as pie.

We have a 4-line system in our office, but it is not working properly. For instant, when line 4 rings...it only comes into one of the phones. All lines are working properly with dial tones. If we would...


Now here's a conflict. Does line 4 work on any other phone where it doesn't ring? You say all lines are working properly wiith dial tones, tnen you say you can't pick it up from another phone.

I don't think these phones have "private lines", but the dial tone comes from the 2nd RJ-14 jack on the wall. On every phone, you could swap the plugs so that line 1 comes into line 3 and line 3 comes into line 1 (you'll lose the intercom) and see if you get dial tone on line 2 which will be the phone that works line 4. The point being to determine if you have a wiring issue or a programming problem.

I have 4 lines that were made into speed dial numbers then deleted. On this phone (although not other phones on the same network) they now appear as "blank". If calls are put on hold from another phone to...


You call your Nortel service tech, unless you know the installer password and are familiar with programming. You have to go back into set programming and reassign the lines.

Phone lines are flashing making a loud beeping noise. The screen is texting funny words. Phone is ringing with ambulance style ring before the normal tone


The phone doesn't like something it's sharing a line with.

First, check to see if the extension number on each phone is different. You may have two extension 11's.

Next, check that line 1 is line 1 one all of the phones, then line 2 is line 2 etc. If one phone has line line 1 showing up on line 2 then you may have wires crossed somewhere. Or if you pick up a line on phone one and line 2 goes red on one of the other phones you have wires crossed.

Last, check in the plugs to make sure the connections are straight. Sometimes when a phone plug is inserted the pins cross and short two lines together.

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.

What do I buy to use 2line phone and separate fax?


You can buy a 2 line phone, but to use the fax/dsl line for voice, you will also need a line sharing device.

"The stick" is a good brand....

All it does is recognize if an incoming call is a fax or a voice call. If fax it would go to a fax port on the stick. If voice, it comes out the voice port which you can call on.

The same rules apply to this line....if something is using it, the next call will get busy......But now you could have the phone company "Hunt" your line 1 to line 2 (fax/dsl) if line 1 is busy.......hence...2 incoming lines....

No dial tone, just buzzing noise - should be 2 line phone, 1 jack


What you need is a dsl filter since you are working off a splitter. You can usually get these for free from your phone company.
