Question about NEC Electra Elite 32D-1 Corded Phone

I NEED to cancel warning tones...

The NEC switchboard I have to use every day is driving me quite batty with beeping that starts after someone has been on hold for 60 seconds. The only way around it is to either take them off hold then put back on, or turn the volume right down, which unfortunately also turns down the ringing volume. Does anyone out there know if I can cancel that "Feature"? Frustrated Receptionist

Re: I NEED to cancel warning tones...

You cannot cancel the feature but the on-hold recall timer can be increased. This is a system programming feature that will effect all phones. You could change the timer from 60 seconds to say 240 or more. Do you know who is in charge of making programming changes for your system? You may have someone at the office or you may pay a company for adds, moves & changes. As far as programming goes, changing a simple timer is about as easy as it gets but it's still a bit complicated and would require a programming manual for your phone system (not the phone) so the first step is to find out which NEC phone system you have.

On the IP1NA-12TXH, pressed the call1 button and now the screen says switchboard. how do i go back to the regular name display?

If your phones says "switchboard" that is the name assigned to it. in idle condition you should have a name and an extension number as well as the time and day showing on your Aspire phone.

What does a boken dialling tone on my phone mean? It is all working fine and there are no warning messages on the display.

Usually broken dial tone means the line has call-forward set. You get broken tone for 3 or 4 seconds, then goes back to normal. Are you receiving incoming calls normally? It's common to set or cancel 'cause the code might kinda match a number you use. And it may be forwarded to nowhere, example, you dial 729-1111, but press 72#-1111. You might be forwarded to 1111, the code being 72#. The 1111 goes nowhere, someone calls you, calls gets forwarded, then they get a message"that number does not exist". If that's the code for your area, then 73# might be the cancel code. Check the front of the original phone book, or Google codes for your service provider.

Does not ring

If you recently dialed 4-0 or 4-1, those are Do Not Disturb and Call Forward codes. if this is what happened, then dial the cancel code for both, which is 4-2. This is with internal dial tone, don't grab an outside to do this. You could have someone dial your extension to test if the ringer is faulty. if their call comes in as voice announce, have them add a 1 to their dial sequence and their call should switch to audible ring, and you will know it's not a ringer issue. Adding a 1 can be done continuously if you want to switch back and forth.

If your main system cabinet (in some closet somewhere) is plastic, you have the NEC Electra Professional Level I system and the DND cancel procedure is <FNC>, 60, <FNC> when the phone is idle. If your main system cabinet is metal, you have the NEC Electra Professional Level II system and the DND cancel procedure is <FNC>, 69, <FNC> when the phone is idle. You can also press "42" while hearing intercom dial tone. The most common cause of accidentally setting DND is by dialing "40" while hearing intercom dial tone (Level II system).There is a slim chance your main system is not the Electra Professional series. If either of the above do not work, let me know.

BIS 34-D phone - Display window blinks date time beeps multiple times/day

The display will blink if power is cut either by unplugging or if the control system is power-cycled. The cause of the power glitches needs to be located & corrected. Changing the ring tone/cadence depends on which control unit is being used.
