Direct Station Select/Busy Lamp Field UnitConnects to Axxess Executive and Standard digital display endpoints for one-button access additional extension numbers, features and resources.

  • Provides single-button access to 60 extension numbers, hunt group pilot numbers, trunks or trunk groups and/or feature codes
  • An Executive or Standard digital display endpoint can be equipped with up to four DSS/BLF units, increasing your capacity to as many as 240 programmable buttons.
  • LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamps indicate whether associates are available or unavailable
Button Assignment Options:
  • Call Key – Answers ringing and holding outside calls, up to 10 Call Keys can be designated in each key map
  • DSS/BLF Key – Provides one-key dialing of extension numbers; the lamp shows the status of the associated station or hunt group

Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance!

How do you set the phone to automatic pickup a ringing phone line when you lift handset?

If the ringing line is programmed into one of your dss/blf buttons it should answer when you lift the handset. Else, if it is someone else's phone ringing, lift your handset and dial 40. That will only work if allowed in the pbx programming. Hope that helps.

Garage door programming doesn't work

try resetting the homelink system by holding down the first and last buttons at the same time until the light flashes rapidly on your visor. this could take up to a min. then at the same time press whichever button you want to program on the visor and the garage door remote button at the same time until the light on the visor flashes rapidly.that could take up to a min. after that is complete you need to go and push the learn code button on the back of the openers unit, then go and push and hold the button on the visor you just programmed until you hear a click or you see the light flash on your opener unit. after that try using your homelink. note there is about a 3 second delay when using homelink. you need to push and hold the button until you see the door operate.

DSS is a term for Direct Station Select.

In Panasonic, a DSS console is separate from the phone and some system functions can only be programmed on a DSS key. You can program some buttons to Directly Select Extensions, but they only select extensions and can't be used to replace DSS keys.

Yeah, I know it's confusing, but that's the nature of Panasonic. Other systems have DSS keys also and use that term.

I have a KX-T7456. Set 3 CO buttons for speed dial with new names and extensions. Busy light does not come on when those 3 lines are in use. Works on all the other numbers.

It's not speed dial, it's DSS. Names come from the directory (sys prog 004). The button programs from personal programming PROG 99? button 1+ext+STORE.

Programming extensions in the phone

If you have manual(z), they should. One, the OM (operating manual) will tell you how to set up your personal programming.

The buttons on the left side of a 7730 have lights, the buttons on the right do not, so they are programmed differently. Left side is DSS, right side is PF (personal feature). If you have spare left side buttons, press PROGRAM the button and dial 1 plus the ext number and STORE. The light will now follow the activity of the extension you programmed.

The buttons on the right have no lights, so you can only put in extension speed dial numbers. For that, press PROGRAM, the button, and dial the 3 digit extension number and STORE.

Depending on the system your phone is connected with, you can just press the button to dial, or you have to pick up the handset or SP-PHONE and select intercom (if not selected) and it will dial that extension, or if the system is a TAW, TD or higher, just press the button.

We have comdial impact 8324 phones here. One of our employees no longer has a DSS button that transfers calls directly to someone's voicemail. How can we program that back in?

Try this:
Storing a DSS Number -
Only one DSS number may be stored at each programmable button location but you may store a feature code or autodial number on the second level for a button location that already has the DSS programmed.
To Store an Intercom Extension Number as a DSS Number :
  1. Press optionS
  2. Press NEXT four times
  3. Press DSS
  4. Press the programmable button
  5. Dial the extension number
  6. Repeat as many times as desired
  7. Press SPEAKER to end.
NOTE: Do not program interactive buttons. If this occurs, you can retrieve functions by pressing INTERCOM "**1" , the interactive button and dial 91, 92 or 93 (from left to right). Attempting to program these buttons can cause features to be unavailable.

KX-T7730 phone. Need to reprogram one of the PF buttons as a CO2 button. I accidently messed up the programming of this button while trying to program a different PF button as a one-touch dialing...

Just so we're on the same page, the PF buttons are the 12 buttons on the right and their ONLY function is one-touch dialing. They can't be CO buttons. The 12 buttons on the left are called CO buttons and they can be programmed to do a number of things, including CO, DSS, and feature access buttons.

To reprogram the button, press PROGRAM, the button, the dial 0 + the CO number (1-8) and STORE. Extensions are 1+ext and one-touch are 2+. Other features are in the programming guide.

The PF buttons are programmed by just dialing the digits, but if it calls out, you must dial an access code first, usually "9".

Can not hear the telephone ring on one of the main phones upstair

You will need to know which line(s), and on which station(s) (extensions) you want each line to ring.

Programming is accomplished as follows:

Default Installer Password = INTERCOM *746
You can enable different ringing assignments for individual lines and stations.
You must program ringing assignments on a per station/per line basis. You can control ringing for every line that has appearance at a station assigning immediate, or direct, ringing to some lines and delayed ringing to others. NOTE: Do not program direct ringing for lines that you assign to the direct department calling feature.
To Program: 1. Dial 54. “STA/LINE CONFIG.”
2. Dial 1 “DIRECT RING”
Dial 2. “DELAY RING”
NOTE: For no station ringing, skip step 3 and make no line selection.
3. Select line ports for ringing (LED On = Selected Ports).
—Line port 1–14 = Dial 01–14 or press A1–A14
—Line port 15, 16 = Dial 15, 16 or press B1, B2
—Line port 17–24 = Dial 17–24 or press HOLD then press A1–A8.
4. Dial # when all line ports are selected.
5. Select station ports (LED On = Feature Assigned)
—Station 10–57: Dial 10–57 or press C10–C57.
6. Dial * when all station ports are selected
dial ** for next station/line ringing assignment
dial ***for configuration mode.
To clear current setting, repeat procedure.

Use an LCD speakerphone and a DSS/BLF console at station port 11 or 13 to see which features are assigned to individual stations. While you can install any non-LCD digital telephone and use it for programming, visual feedback of the programming operations will not be available. You must always keep the handset of the LCD speakerphone on-hook while you use this telephone to program the system.

Since you're asking this question in the Partner 18 category, I'm guessing it's a Partner phone.

1. Transfer from a system phone is done by pressing the TRANSFER button and either dialing the 2 digit extension or the DSS button programmed for that phone.

2. Transfer from a single line phone is by flashing the hookswitch (FLASH) button and dialing the 2 digit extension.

3. Transfer into voice mail is done by programming a button or pressing FEATURE 14 and the 2 digit extension.
