I have a similar Panasonic phone (KX_TGA101S).  Someone must have inadvertently changed the dial mode on you.  Here is how you change it on mine, which should be similar to yours.  Hit the Menu button.  Scroll down to "Set tel line" and hit the Menu Button (OK). If it isn't displayed, scroll to "Set Dial Mode" and hit the Menu Button. Select Tone instead of Pulse and hit the Menu Button.  That should do it.

The tone on my 2 portable DECT 6.0 phones was somehow changed- now every time I dial, I get the old rotary sound and I can not access any menu options. Help, I use my phone for work and need it fixed! ...


Your phone is somehow set to pulse dialling and you need to change it to tone. Instructions are given below.

Of course if you can't select menu options this will not work so please explain why the menu options are not available - what happens when you select the menu softkey?

Dial mode
The dial mode is preset to tone. If you do not have touch tone service, you need to change the setting to pulse.
To change the setting:
Press the MENU softkey when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select SETTINGS, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to select Dial mode, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to choose Tone or Pulse. Press the SET softkey to save, or press the BACK softkey to exit to the previous menu.

I have a Prostar 816 Plus. I disconnected the power cable today to connect it to a new battery back up surge protector. I then tried to dial out and it sounds like an old rotary phone. It allows me to dial...


To change the dialing from pulse to dtmf dialing on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down, enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming)
2) enter in #42 the screen should momentarily say trunk dial typethen display the current programmed data (00000000)
3) enter in 0 for pulse dialing and 1 for dtmf dialing for each of the lines. i.e. touch tone dialing for lines 1-4 would be 11110000. all 8 digits must be entered for the program to accept the data
press # when finished.

The dial tone has gone back to the old rotary system


If your system is defaulting to pulse dialing , it sounds like an earlier 8x24 or 6x16. The memory battery is contained in the software cartridge and is fairly easy to change by first powering down the system, pulling out the cartridge and replacing it with the new one. You will have to reprogram the system one more time after start up ,but the should hold after that
