Question about GE 2-9450C Corded Phone
I just got (5) model # 2-9450c telephones and. I am trying to use the first telephone and i plug everything in when i pick the phone up nothing happens. How do I program the phone to work. I read the instructions and maybe I am missing something but there is nothing that says why there is no dial tone. Please help. intercom light flashes red/green.
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

With the handset down (hung up) press the intercom/speed dial number 1 then 2 quickly. I believe this assigns the phone intercom number 1. After a few seconds the phone should work normally. I just figured this out for my self.

I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they were originally programmed when there were two lines available and they have not lost power since then. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the red post inside the phone jack. Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. (Line 1 is the red and green wires, Line 2 is the black and yellow wires.) The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom button, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use. If it isn't then press STORE/IN, Intercom and then press one of the 1 to 16 buttons at the top for which station number you want it to be.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension. Now it should work.

How do you set up the intercom??? The manuals don't say how to do this. The intercom LED just blinks and blinks.

My problem is similar to 'geico's'.
i set up a never used, fresh out of the box, model 2-9450 phone for the first time.
followed all the steps, i think, but the handset does not work.
although the handset doesnt work, i am pretty sure if the phone is working otherwise - for instance the speaker phone works.
checked and rechecked both handset cord plugs - there is absolutely no sound on the handset receiver.
do you have any ideas that may help me?

If you intercom light is flashing red and green , it is seeknig to enter the network .Go to the intercom setup and give the phone an intercom number . That should do it .

Try these steps...

2. Press okay on TOOLS, then look for RUN FAX TEST. Then press okay.
3. It will print a fax test page. Check if everything passed.
4. If it passed everything, try to press setup again, and then go to ADVANCE FAX SETUP.
5. Scroll, down and look for ECM (Error correction mode), then press okay
6. Under ECM you will have to options "ON or OFF" try to choose OFF then press OKAY.
7. Now, try sending a fax.
Also you can try to reset the printer.
1. Take out the cartridges from the unit .
2. Make sure the unit is connected to the wall jack directly without any surge protector.
3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
4. Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
5. Do not release the keys after a few seconds you will find the hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
6. After one minute turn on the printer . It will go into alignment phase > let it finish .
7. After its done > try to make a copy .
Note - you can also try the OK and CANCEL key combination in place of # and 6
