On hold device

How do I plug a device which will play on-hold music into the pabx. Is this easy?

Do phones normally have a port that they plug into or is it on the pabx. Where do I start?

On the back of the TalkSwitch is a 1/8" Mono female jack which you can plug in an audio source. You could use a radio, satelite radio, iPod, PC audio card or a CD player as your audio source. Most electronics stores will carry a cable with a male 1/8" end, which will fit the TalkSwitch, to the interface of your choice. Typically the music-on-hold input will not be on the phone or handset but on the Key Switch or PBX units. It is normaly just a matter of plugging in an audio source though it's always a good idea to check the manual first as there may be extra steps involved. With the TalkSwitch it is plug and play; a very easy process indeed.

Start by looking at the system. It's pretty tough to miss the two jacks labeled MUSIC and PA.

They take a 1/8" (3.5mm) mono jack, so you can come out of your MOH device with an RCA to 1/8" or 1/8" to 1/8" cord. Your local Rat Shack should have the cables.

You also need to open up the Talkswitch Configuration software and in the On-hold / Ringback section select "Play music whose source is connected to the MUSIC jack". The default setting is "Play double beep tones" so connecting a music device will have no effect until you make this change.

Want to change hold music how do i do it


Panasonic hold music comes from an external source (if it's programmed properly) that connects to the EXT MUSIC port of the KSU. A 7730 phone is an analog device, most likely plugged into a TA series box in the back room. Depending on how it's mounted, the jacks are under the cover on the top or the right side of the box. There will be 11 modular jacks on the base cabinet (3 lines 8 exts) a page port and the music port (both 1/8" jacks).

Wherever that cable goes is your music source.

We have plugged the radio source into the MOH port and it is still playing the merry-go-round on hold music. How do we get it to play the radio if its already plugged in?


If you find the phone that has access to programming, (may be extension 101) you will have to get to program 711 and change the MOH source. Also read 710 and 712 for other controls for transfer and background music.

Before you ask and/or give a bad rating, it's beyond the scope of a public forum to post passwords and programming access.

Can you change the "on hold" music on the


The music source plugs into the EXT MUSIC port of the Panasonic System cabinet. It could be one or two jacks on the side of the box or the MPR card. Whatever supplies the music would need to be reprogrammed. In the USA, it's illegal to play unlicensed music on hold without paying a fee.

HOW DO I CHANGE HOLD RINGING MUSIC?


The music is external to the phone system. In the back room or a closet somewhere, there's a dark blue and black cabinet that has a port that's marked MOH. It will go to some kind of box or computer that supplies the music. It may have a model or phone number on it. You change the music by buying or recording new MP3 files to play.

Is there a way to change the hold music on my panasonic kx-t7633 it's terrible or am i stuck with what i have


You're stuck with what you have unless you find the box that's playing it and change the recording. Your system cabinet (a black and blue TDA cabinet) has a music device plugged into the MOH port. Just change the file.

Kx t7436 Background music


The easy answer is check program 803. It should be set to music1. The harder one is that you need to look at some 990 programs. Most notably area 7 bit 7 for a "1".

Changing hold music - Panasonic KX-T7433


If it's truly music and not tones, the music comes from a device plugged into the system cabinet. On the side of the system there is a port marked MOH with a cable and a box at the other end. Here's where you find the MOH device and either change the CD or record new messages into it.

Intellitouch has a product called message studio that lets you make your own message on hold messages here:

The demo is free, and a licensed product is about $30.

Need to activate Music on hold mode


The newer model RCA phone will do music on hold. There is a jack on the back of each phone, you plug a cd player or MOH device into it and it will play on ALL of the phones(not just that one).

Comdial impact 8024s LCD Speakerphone


This is an option of the phone system and not the phone. There should be a music port on the side of your phone system. You want a low volume level input to go into the port (an amplified signal can apply too much power and break the feature)
