System Programming, Busy No Answer on an analog fax extension

I know this can be done, though I'm not certain if "Busy No Answer" is the proper term in a case like this.

I have two fax lines, both already set up, working, and have DiD numbers programmed for them.

I know the extension number and the port number for both.

What I want is to set up a "Busy No Answer" sort of thing so if Fax number one is dialed and it is busy, it rolls over to the second fax line.

I know how to do this with actual physical telephone stations, (Speaker 43 then the extension number), but I don't know how to set up this sort of thing on a fax line that has no physical DTU 16D station associated with it, just a fax machine. I've searched the IPK programming manual (I have one) for the solution, but it's a tough search when you aren't sure of the proper terminology for what you want to do.

I am somewhat comfortable with programming the system, I know how to get into programming mode, I've programmed station numbers for new stations, DiD numbers, hold recall times etc, mostly the simple stuff.

I'm a Systems Admin and I know just enough NEC phone stuff to be dangerous, but hey, I'm learning and I have yet to trash our system. :-)

Any NEC IPK gurus out there that can help? I'm guessing this is a bit more complicated to program than I'm hoping, but  if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

Else I'll just end up calling our vendor and have the tech come out to do it, but honestly I'd like to learn to do it myself as much as possible.

The feature is actually called Executive Busy Override. It requres programming, but lets you join a busy CO or extension. It can be blocked by the extension user by dialing a code.

The Programming and Operating manual for your system will have detailed setup and use instructions.

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.

The Panasonic KX TA824 system phone How can I make that when somebody is on the corldess phone that is connected to the system Lets say extension 105 when a call comes in to extension 105 I should not get...

On an 824 you only have one option, call forward busy/no answer. It means all calls transferred to that extension would go somewhere. Since an 824 has no ring groups, you can't make the system do a double hop (CF busy to 101 and if 101 is busy CF to something else) but at least it's something.

From the cordless, dial 712 1xx # with xx being the extension of the forwarded number. (710# cancels).

Nortel t7316e how to program the button indicator for another busy phone. I want to see if somebody is on another phone by ''lighting'' the indicator on the other phones

Programming a one touch button for extensions in the office is done by entering feature *2 pressing the button you wish to program and entering the extension number. The programming is done on a set by set basis.

Ringer/ Voicemail Bounceback

Well, this one is kinda tricky. If the receptionist knows there's no one there, they can use VoiceMail Transfer.

From the phone, the user can set CF Busy or CF Busy/No Answer with the following codes on the intercom:

Do Not Disturb *7101 / Cancel *7100

Call Forwarding2.gif (FWD)

– Both Calls *710
– Outside Calls *711
– Intercom Calls *712

2 (All calls) + phone no. + #/
3 (Busy) + phone no. + #/
4 (No Answer) + phone no. + #/
5 (Busy/No Answer) + phone no. + #/
7 (Follow Me) + your extension no./
8 (Follow Me Cancel) + your extension no.

So, if your voice mail is 500, you would dial *7105500# to set CF B/NA for intercom and outside calls.

The last piece of the puzzle is the timing. That's *713 (00-99). Start with 24 (4 rings) and go from there. If it hits the receptionist before the forward takes place, you probably have to adjust the recall timer for call transfer, a system program.

Samsung 816 power outage dailing an outside line

First thing you should verify a dial tone on the fax machine. (use any analog phone)
If you have dial tone, press 9 and then a number
Second is it conected through tel. system? (did it have an internal extension) and there is no dial tone then your analog port may be fried. Call your telephone vendor. He should be able to help you.
You can purchase a manual for about 10 dollars
Email your system model number to sales at for further instructions

Multi line system and phone still rings while I'm on another line


Unfortunately if the receptionist is using priority call (f69) there's not much you can do. Priority call is an administrator programmed function that overrides when your on a call and when the set is in do not disturb. Maybe bribing the receptionist might be in order.
