Question about GN Netcom GN 8000 Amplifier

1 Answer

I think my phone is too old to hook up to the amplifier.

My phone is a AT & T 8102A, it is from 1982 I think. It doesn't have a headset jack. Is a headset jack required or is the amp, like an adaptor for phones that don't have a headset jack?

My co-worker fiddled around for a bit and finally we made it work. He plugged the amplifier into the jack for the phones handset, and then plugged the handset into the phone.

The headset we then plugged into the amp. This seems so simple, it would be great if I had been told this by our tech cupport team, maybe we would have had it hooked up sooner.

thanks!

    Look to see if you have a headset jack on the phone if not then you would require the headset amplifier, make sure that the handset cable unplugs from the telephone. Glad to help!

No sound from my sennheiser 840s


Hi Suzanne, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you.
If you step back and look at this problem, there are two to three things that immediately come to mind: 1) have you hooked your headphone input to an output of another device like an amplifier or tv or ...? 2) Are you certain that the headphones are charged and the power to the base station is good 3) pairing the headphones to the base may be an issue.
Please clarify some things and anything else you can think of. Chad

I have Nortel T7316E phones and Plantronics HW251N headsets. Is there a way to increase the volume for the mic so that the caller can hear us better?


The A10 direct connect cord used on the Nortel T7316E primarily will increase the speaker volume. If the problem is that your microphone is too low, you will need to use an amplifier, the M22. Remember that the amplifier needs to be connected through the HANDSET jack not the headset jack. Here is the link for the Plantronics M22.

Have a S12 model and everything appears to be set up correctly. I can hear calls coming in but they can't hear me and I can't make outgoing calls. Any suggestions?


S12 system - Some phones have jacks for headsets but the S12 is designed to connect through the HANDSET jack of the phone. Make sure all the cables are connected properly on the amplifier and telephone. and that it's configured (compatibility slide switch located on side of amplifier) to your phone. Once connected properly remember that you will need to lift the handset in order open a line on your telephone.

I connected my S11 plantronics headset to my Cisco 7900 at work and can hear, but callers can't hear me


Most Cisco phones have a headset port where you can connect a headset using a special direct connect cable. This allows you to use your headset without touching the handset (receiver). However, when using an amplifier and headset combination, like the S11, you will need to connect through the HANDSET port. You disconnect the handset cable from the phone, connect the S11 cable into that port and connect the handset cable into the back of the S11 amplifier. Be sure to follow the illustrations on the back of the amplifier when connecting the cables. Also, adjust the configuration slide on the left of the amplifier for the best possible dial tone. Remember that in order to access a call or make a call, you will have to lift the handset off the phone and set it aside (switch hook needs to be activated).

I recently purchased a plantronics h171 headset for my snom 320 phone. I can hear fine but no one can hear me


This is a common problem if you are using a 2.5mm patch cable instead of the Vista M22 amplifier. Phones do not put out enough power to the 2.5mm jack. If you are using the Vista M22 amplifier make sure the batteries are fresh and installed correctly. Also sometimes a voice tube can become clogged with debris which can restrict the airflow and people will not be able to hear you.

I am trying to use a plantronics headset system and cannot get a dial tone. Is this Norstar phone compatible?


You don't say what headset it is, but I will to help you.

If this is a Plantronics corded "H" series headset you will need to use an A10 adapter cord, which plugs into the headset jack on the phone.

If this is what you are using and you don't hear anything then you need to probably need to switch to an M22 amplifier box, which is then plugged into the jack where the telephone handset was plugged in.

If you are using a wireless headset it plugs into the handset jack where the handset cord was plugged into.

I can hear callers but they can't hear me through the headset. everything is hooked up properly.


Make sure the Plantronics S11 is plugged into the handset jack on your phone and not the headset jack. This will make a difference.

How do you program phone for headset mode on sts phone and where do you plug it in?


Some phones have jack on the side of the phone. If it does not, you will need a standard telephone headset with amplifier. You will need a handset button (634) programmed on the phone. Then in programing Flash 50 button 4 you will need to disable speakerphone. Flash 50 button 18 determines the headset type: 0-is amplified unit plugged into handset cord, 1-is 2.5mm jack on side of phone,

To use handset, press handset button so it is lit, use on off to answer calls with the handset.

NBX 3102 Headset jack stops working


You should be using a plantronics a-10 interface cable if you are using hardwire headsets. get rid of the m-20 amplifiers. I support 280 of these phones and the best solution is to replace the phone. Power cycling the phone will help for a while but the problem will come back.
