Question about NEC Electra Elite DTU 16D-2 Corded Phone

1 Answer

It is time to replace the NiCio battery in my NEC phone system. I would like to purchase the battery locally. If I remove the battery to bring it to my local electronics supply house, is there a battery backup in the system that will keep us up and running for a short period of time?

Local Electrical outage has left our phone system void of all programming

Hope your vendor has a back-up so they can download it to your system and you'll be off and running. Trying to piece together the database that you weren't familiar with is a tedious and unlikely process. Get the internal battery replaced so this doesn't happen next outage.

Change time on phone system

Time and date is system wide programming and not the phone.
You need to read the Administration Guide that matches the phone system model you have. You also need to do it from the Administration phone, usually the 2 lowest ext #'s on the system.

If it is an Elite or IPK then search internet for:

Out of range At times when I am on the phone, it cuts out and shows "out of range" in the window

Joan, there are two things that can cause this,one, the batteries are not holding charge anymore or your base is loosing signal based on its location relative to handset.
Replace batteries and then charge them for 5 hrs before initial use. You can purchase replacement batteries from your local radio shack or walmart. Please bring your handset with your for the store to find exact replacement.

The cmos battery is out of service. Where can i buy a new one?

You can purchase a CMOS battery from any local computer store in your area. If you don't know how to remove and connect the CMOS battery, I would suggest bringing your Acer Travelmate to any local computer shop or if you preferred, you can bring it to Acer Accredited Service Center.

Thank you,

For the NEC you will need to have an NEC Technician enable this in programming or if you were given all the manuals when you purchased the system you can enable this option in the Class of Service area in programming.

Need a manual for NEC ETW16DC-1 system

fonedud - The ETW model terminal will work on several NEC systems. Without knowing what system the telephone is connected to, it is impossible to address your concern. You should be able to find a local NEC Authorized dealer in your area to assist.

Ring and paging system

I have seen cases where programming can be messed up or even set back to default with rapid on-off-on-off power surges that often happen in power outages. The system will need to be re-programmed. I have never programmed an NEC system but here is what you need. Either find a local installation company that can fix this for you OR figure out which NEC phone system you have and locate the Programming and Installation manual for it. (not a user guide or administrator's manual) The phone's part number will not help you figure out which NEC system you have, it only narrows it down a bit. Look for the main control unit in the basement, utility closet, etc.. Programming any phone system can be daunting for someone who has not done it before even with the right manuals. If you are not up to it, look for a company that can help. MAKE SURE the system is defaulted before re-programming it! There could be a glitch in the programming that cannot be fixed without a system default so you want to do this before making any changes. Also, I would highly suggest a UPS backup power supply for the phone system. This will keep it running for a short time in a power outage and will stop this from happening again. If you have a small system with 1-12 phones, most small UPS systems made for computers will work. Small phone systems use less power than a computer and monitor.
