Unplug the phone for a few seconds then plug back in. Do you see the time and date on the display? If not try a phone you know works fine. If the other phone works fine and the original phone is still having problems then you will need to replace the original phone. If both phones have the same problem there is an issue with the port on the phone system and you will need to call technician to the site to troubleshoot and repair. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I have the same problem. It happened after I press feature * and a number I can't remember. Is there a code to reactivate the keypad?

I have a Panasonic KX-T7030 telephone system: the buttons don't work!

I have not seen this in a long time. 'Way back in
the 1970's a similar problem would occur when the
telephone company accidently reversed the 'tip and
ring' wires. This was only a problem with the
then-new "push button" (tone) dialing, the standad
rotary dials worked fine. The fix was to reverse
the red & green station wires in the "B-block"
(on the baseboard) to undo the central office goof.

Maybe it still happens? Try reversing the red &
green wires in the modular (wall) socket you are
plugging the base ('main unit') into.

Good luck!

Dial tone nortel phone

It\'s in system programming: feature CONFIG, Terminals & Sets, enter ext #, Prime Line: set to I/C (for intercom dial tone) or Line xxx. It is probably set to None based on your description.

Nortel M7208 will not dial

A button may be stuck on the dial pad. Check all buttons to ensure they are free and none of them are stuck.

Phone is blinking when it stops none of the buttons seem to work and it says no line selected on my M7310

When the it is blinking the phone is resetting. There are several reasons for this. Once the blinking stops and Date & Time appear, your phone should be operational again. Check the buttons for programming by using Feature *0 and pressing any button to verify it is programmed. If not you might have a bad phone. Try swapping phones with a working one of the same type. This will tell you if your phone or port are in trouble by where the trouble goes.

The message lamp is staying on - when you press messages there are none - the system automatically dials another extension. how do I solve this please?

It's supposed to. On your phone you have a button called MESSAGE. It's what sets up message waiting. So does the digit "4" after you call someone on the intercom (oops). Try it. Call someone on the intercom and while their phone is ringing, press "4". Listen to your set and look at the display!

To clear those, press MESSAGE on an idle phone. Look at the display. It will tell you who the message is from and one of the soft keys (3rd) will be CLEAR. Press it and the message(s) will go away one at a time. *700 plus your own extension will also clear ALL messages at once. (There are a whole bunch of other MW commands like *701 and *702, but the button replaces those). They work great on Single line sets in motels....

Intercom issue

Those are 2 very different questions. Since you both have display phones, look at them. A 7731 on a TA system changes state with the * button. There are 3; Extension, Time, Time & Date.

When she calls you, your Auto Answer button is probably lit. Press it so it turns off and haver her call you again. It should ring, but not always. The button can control a couple of things, according to programming. Now, have her press her AA button until it lights. Now call her. Voice call?

If none of this works, please provide your cabinet model number. It's listed on the side of the cabinet where all the phones plug in.

My intercom button flashed red to green. When I push a line button, I get a two-tone beep but no dial tone. I changed the internal 9 v battery. I unplugged the phone and waited, then plugged it back in....

Each telephone must be connected to line 1 and line 2 for
proper operation. The remaining lines 3 and 4 may — or may not —
be connected to each station as you desire. First plug in the battery, then the phone lines (1 & 2 are mandatory), and third the power cord. If your intercome LED is blinking red and green, then press: STORE IN, followed by "INTERCOM" followed by a free intercom# (i.e., any of the memory buttons 1 through 16 not already assigned to another telephone set). Then wait for the phone to go through its initiation sequence during which it searches each of the four possible lines. After that concludes, you should get dial tone on your active lines. :-) Marco
