Question about Polycom Lands Phones

1 Answer

Add an inline volume controller

Our Polycom VoiceStation 300 is too loud even when the volume is turned all the way down on the unit. I think I should be able to install an in-line volume control on the cord that leads to the unit, but I don't know which wire(s) control volume. Does anyone have experience here who could talk me through it?

Unless you are good a solder then you probably won't be able to do it. You wolud need to solder a potentiometer inline of the + voltage to the speaker. Or solder one inline with the existing one. Potentiometer = voltage control aka volume control.

    I'm pretty good at soldering, but I don't know which of the wires are which. They connect to the phone via an ethernet jack. I guess I could take the cover off and try to figure out which ones lead to the mic and which to the speakers, but I was hoping someone already knew. :-)

SOURCE: how do i conferance call on a polycom voicestation

The conference call feature is not part of the phone, but part of your telephone network. In some systems you press a sequence of keys to conference in another member such as flash #02 but it depends on what telephone network you use. Contact your IT admin and ask how to trigger the feature on that analog line.

SOURCE: I have the Polycom VoiceStation

Hi, I have never really though of those brand devices as all that good. I recommend Konftel, they are simply the best. With Aethra, a close second...last is .......

Just get the top of the line one, and you will NOT be disappointed.

BTY, I expect that your unit is faulty, the electret mic's aren't very good, and fail quite a bit, as with all cheap electret's, and also check positioning too, this can make a difference too, make sure nothing is around to reflect the sounds as this is what makes it echo and sound bad, regardless.

SOURCE: What are possible reasons that the conference phone is not getting power?

If you know anyone that can test the power supply with a digital meter, you can check if the power supply works or not. the power control board on the voicestation might have blown. and If that is the case I wouldnt recommending fixing it. Getting a refurbished or used with maybe 3 months to 1 year warranty isnt that expensive on these systems. getting it fix might cost you about the same. But checking if the power supply is working or not would be the first thing you want to do. If that works. looking for a power supply is pretty easy.

I set up the polycom as instructed... I even confirmed with my helpdesk that the line is analog. When i turn the unit on I get a high pitched buzzing sort of sound... no dial tone? I also cannot dial in...


Try to plug a cheap analog phone into the same line instead of the voicestation to verify that it is indeed analog. It sounds as if you connected the phone to a specialty PBX line or similar. There are analog PBX that only work with their own phones. You can also try to connect the phone at home and see if it works on your analog line at home.

How do I conference call on a Polycom Voicestation 400?


Conference call is not a feature of the phone, but a feature of the telephone system in the company. Usually you press a sequence of keys like flash #02 to trigger this function in the phone system. If your company phone system does not offer the feature then you have to use an external conference call provider.
