RCA 4 line phone

While your on hold you hear loud annoying beeps about every 5 seconds. I'm trying to get rid of those beeps or at least spread the time between beeps farther apart.

The phone generates a low beep tone about once every 10 seconds for the person on hold. This lets them know that they were not hung up on but at the same time it is not needed if you have music like a typical office puts on the holding lines. I talked with the manufacturer and they told me that this feature can not be disabled through programming. There is however a on-hold aftermarket adapter that can be placed in front of the music system that will eliminate the tone (Invotel AudioImage SX4400EZ). The cost we paid for this device was about $200 which has a audio input and in/out plugs for all 4 lines. Do a google search for this device and you will see that it is designed to fix the problem for this phone that you are talking about.

Hi Richman,

If you have more than one phone line which I assume that you do -if one party has not completely hung up the handset after putting someone on hold when you pick it up on your end you will hear that beeping noise that you are talking about. Have them pick back up the line while you are on it and replace the handset again on thier phone to disconnect completely.

I hope this helps (trial and error)
Thanks

On hold beep


Unfortunately the Beep is built into the phone itself. Other than throwing the phone away (seriously considered) you can add on hold music which at least plays sound and reduces, somewhat, the annoyance of the beep. You need to purchase a Skutch CK-7, which is an on hold music adapter that works on the phone. I do not sell them, so suggest you just google them on line. It is not great, but better than just the beep
