Re: dedicated fax line on system phone

If you have a dedicated fax line, the fax should be connected directly to the phone line. If you have the fax line connected to one of your station ports, you may be able to see which LED lights up on your phone when the fax goes off hook. Or you can just try intercomming all extensions in order until the fax rings.

Caller ID not working on Norstar terminal using line dedicated to fax and phone

You must have latest software to have Caller ID
You must have a Caller ID line card
Caller ID must be programmed on the phone to allow it
Caller ID signal from carrier is sent between 1st and 2nd call

FYI on the fax: Analog ports (ATA's) on the Norstar system do not show Caller ID, instead you would need to use a line share device that supports caller id such as the STICK.

I have 3 CO lines coming in. I want the 3rd to be available, but not to ring (it is the fax line). How can i have the first two ring, but not the 3rd?

TDA ringing is controlled by ICD groups. If the fax is part of the system (an extension) then you need to set up an ICD group (like #2) that puts the fax extension in it and rings only the fax. If your fax is external to the phone system but you still want to use the fax line, then you take the incoming CO out of any ring group at all (leave the column blank). All of this requires installer access or a really good read on the PTPM manual.

Hi would like to know how to set an extension not to ring when any of the co lines is ringing since i have a fax machine connected to this extension and it is programmed to answer automatically

Ringing for each extension and line is done in Panasonic system programming commands 408-410 for Day/Night/Lunch. You turn off ringing for all lines to your fax extension and then just turn on one line for that phone.

Be sure to turn off or delay the fax line ringing to all the other extensions at the same time.

Line will not disconnect from extension even though there is no call on the line.

Something is off hook with that line. You can try to reboot the phone system....but you will need to find the extension responsible for going off hook.

I have a panasonic hybrid phone system and would like to connect a fax machine, when I connect the fax to the jack, I dont get a dialtone but it goes to the intecom line. The same happens if I connect a...

Hello, you can solve this one of two ways. Try pushing a 9 when you get intercom line, you should get an outside line. So when you want to send a fax, just remember to push a 9, get outside dial tone then dial your number. Or, the second option would be to program that extension jack to auto select a line when going off hook. That will take a manual and some additional guidance. Okay, so thats for making outgoing calls. When it comes to incoming calls, you need to find out what extension the fax is connected to. You can do this by dialing another extension that has a display from the fax machine and see what intercom number comes up on the phones display. So once you know the extension number you can do one of two things. You can leave the fax off since it will most likely ring when any call comes in your office, and only turn it on when receiving a fax. When you answer the fax call on one of your other phones, and hear the beep beep beep, merely push transfer and dial the fax machines extension. That will transfer the incoming fax call to that extension and the fax machine provided you have it turned on. The other option is to break out the system manual(not user guide), and program the fax machines extension to only ring on the line you want it to, say your last line and leave the fax machine on and give out that specific number for faxes. But you do run the risk of your call traffic being heavy, incoming calls rolling over to that line or someone calling that number directly and getting the fax. I think I covered everything I can with the limited information on your application, so I hope that solved your problem.

Vodavi Telephone System Programming

The best way is to remove the phone line from the phone system and make it go direct to the fax. In the closet with the phone equipment. Find the fax telephone jack. Follow where the wires go(it will goto the phone system 25pr cable). Take the pair of wires off. Find the fax number that comes in from ATT. That is the location where you need to punch down the wires that come from the fax telephone jack. To test goto the fax machine pickup the phone on the side of the fax and call your cell phone to see what the caller ID is. God Bless. Jerry

Programe my phone KX-T7730

The phone you have (KX-T7730) requires a phone system to operate. This phone can be installed on a few different Panasonic phone systems. You need a "programming" manual for the phone system to do what you want (not a user guide) so you will first need to determine which system you have. Look for a part number on the system itself, it should start with "KXT" just like the phone.
