Question about Cisco 7940 IP Phone
Is this in the same switch as when it was last working? If not, it could be that the new switch that it is being plugged into is not a Power Over Ethernet switch (if you do not have a power supply for the phone that you are using).
The other issues could be that the PoE function has been switched off on that port, the port is disabled for some reason (check for errdisable status in a sh int [interface name and number] command) or just simply that the port is shut down (test this by plugging in a computer and see if it communicates ok.
Hope that this has helped!

Is the phone connected to a POW (Power Over Ethernet)Cisco Switch? Check the model number of the switch with the Cisco web site www.cisco.com
Have you check whether there is power available on the switch?
enter "show power inline" at the command prompt.
Does the phone work without the head set?
Does the same thing happen when you plug in the head set on another phone?
