Most likely, the extension unit cannot communicate with the
indicator light is solid base unit for one of the following reasons:
red • Base unit has yet to be installed. Install base unit. (Refer to
the Set Up section.)
• Extension is too far from the base unit. Relocate either the
base or extension unit to another electrical outlet. If
indicator light on extension
unit remains solid red, reprogram the link code on extension
unit


Follow these steps:
• Press and hold the button on the right side of the base
unit until the indicator light changes to solid red.
(Approximately five seconds.)
• Release the button, then the indicator light will blink orange.
This creates a new link code and places the base unit into
program mode.
• Follow steps (2) and (3) in the Additional Extension Units
section for all extension units.
• Press and release the button on the base unit to take it out of
program mode. The indicator light will change from flashing
orange to solid green.

Hello,

How to setup the GE InstaJack system to work and receive module with DSL apply the below recommendation

  1. Plug base unit (two RJ-11 connectors) into an electrical outlet; next, connect base unit to DSL filter using six-foot phone cord (included); then connect phone to base unit.
  2. Plug extension unit (one RJ-11 connector) into any desired electrical outlet where needed.
  3. Press recessed button on base unit for less than one second; LED on base unit will illuminate for five minutes.
  4. Repeat process for extension unit; LED on extension unit will blink once.
  5. Verify extension unit has dial tone using handset telephone. Connect extension unit to set-top box using telephone cord.

NOTE: Do not plug DSL filter directly to base or extension unit. DSL filter needs to be connected directly to existing phone jack. Do not use on a surge protector. This will block out the EMI emissions the InstaJack relies on to operate properly.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Savings Account I Don't Fear You!


Business savings accounts are often a hassle for small businesses. Their management, rules and fees are different from personal bank accounts and therefore it can be hard for the owners to deal with them.<br><br>But there is no need to fear! Here are 5 tips to help you learn about different options, choose the bank and account that best fulfills your needs, and keep its menagement simple and free of risks.<br><br>1. First of all, most banks require the payment of a monthly service fee. Usually this fee goes between 5$ to 10$, however most banks will waive it if you keep a certain amount of money in the account. Therefore first of all make sure to shop around to find a bank that asks for a reasonably low monthly service fee. Then make sure not to drop below the threshold so that the bank will accept to waive the monthly fees.<br><br>2. Another important way to choose a bank is according to what kind of business you have and what kind of account it needs. If your business handles a lot of cash, for example, you need a bank that has a low cash handling fee. Or if your business makes a lot of transactions, you need an account with a low excess transaction fee, etc.<br>Consider what your business needs and then choose an account that will facilitate the business's financial activities at the lowest possible cost. For this reason it is very important to explore as many options as possible.<br><br>3. Consider community banks. They may offer lower fees and be more flexible where small businesses need flexibility.<br><br>4. Consider also online banks. Many people have avoided them because the idea of having an only virtual account sounds inconvenient. However online banks are becoming more and more popular and are especially friendly to small businesses and willing to work around their needs.<br><br>5. Last but not least, banks often offer discounts and special terms to customers who combine all their accounts under their bank. Therefore, by using the same bank for all your business's financial needs you will at the same time save money on account fees and build a relationship with your bank, making it easier in the future to ask it for favors.

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.

Dvr not recording


It sounds as if your going to need to replace the receiver as the hard drive has an error on it. I assume you can record live TV. There are also few 510's in the Dish Network service area throughout the country so my suggestion is to have Dish send the receiver to your home as opposed to creating a work order for a technician to come to your home as it will be hard to ensure you get the 510 back.If you decide to upgrade to a HD receiver try to get a model that does not have the internal hard drive but also has the expansion port on it. There is a one time fee to activate this port of 39.99. This amount will be recovered in the first year by using an external hard drive eliminating the 5.99 DVR fee every month. This option also allows you to have better control of your recordings and makes them portable. They also will not be lost by replacing the receiver. If you are a real big tv fan check out the sling box offers. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Our company has a Panasonic kx-t7731 main line has no dail tone.


On that phone, press PROGRAM the button and dial 01 STORE.

Press program again to exit programming.

It's not likely you'll be needing the Group Log In/Out button.
