    Yes, there was water in the sink but I grabbed it right out, took it apart and dried everything immediately. No there are no signs of corrosion, and thanks for the suggestion but the battery removal option didn't do anything either :(

Was there water in the sink at the time?
if so check the connections on the base if there is green corrosion on it the the damage is done you will have to find someone who will repair water damaged phones.
If no water and just the drop that caused the prob then try removing the battery while the phone is still turned on this may shock it back

We have a Panasonic KX-T7433 telephone at work but 2 of the phones do not ring when we have a call we have to go and pick up the main phone at the other end of the room. We can call out on the phones but...

From the phone, press intercom and dial 790. That clears any "cleaning person" button presses. Check the ringer control button on the left side of the phone to make sure it's on. The "we can't pick up the call" is disturbing because the line should appear on your phone. In a TD system, the lines are normally numbered 01-12, but that's on this side of the pond. If you have ISDN ot EI trunks, they may be different. In a standard key system, the line buttons are called Single CO (SCO) buttons and are programmed by prressing Program 99 on an idle phone, then the button and reading them. If they don't say SCO 01 02 03 etc, you dial 0+01 02 03 etc STORE to change them.

Pick up the handset and drop it back down when you're finished.

How do u install it in your car

there is a users guide and maunals in the package,just follow instructions:
Please note this car-kit will not work in cars that use optical cabling. Check with your car dealer before ordering. Also, since this car-kit is installed by hard-wiring to the existing car stereo, professional installation is highly recommended.

Turn on the car engine and the phone connects wirelessly to the Parrot CK3100 Car Kit. The screen unit has easy-to-navigate menu options just like your phone, and your mobile phone book is wirelessly downloaded to the car kit. Calls can be dialed either through the screen, or by using voice-recognition speed dialing. According to your phone's model and firmware, most features are accessible from the hands free console, including one-touch redial, dual call, and auto-answer.

Problem faxing

Unplug the fax at the wall jack and hook up a regular phone. Listen to the dial tone. It should sound like a regular dial tone.

Next, plug the fax back in and call the machine from a regular phone.

You should hear fax tones.

NED Dterm Series E Message Light

I had this problem and finally found a number for Eschelon telecom (763 745 8000). This is what they had me do. Press the Speaker button and then enter 7732. This cleared the blinking light and inmail message. This happens when you receive an internal call and someone leaves you a message to call them back. Still can't figure out how to listen to the message. But this cleared the blinking light.

hope that helps.

Cell's Display is Blank

It's possible that the flex cable that connects the display to the main board has become loose or disconnected. This could easily have happened if the phone was dropped.

The worst possible scenario would be a damaged LCD display due to being dropped.

Unless you feel comfortable with taking the phone apart, you will need to take it to be serviced.

You may also wish to find out whether its cheaper to replace the phone rather than paying to have it fixed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Phone poltergeists

Here is a link to the operating manual which may help.
with strange anomalies, it is sometimes best to clean the system.
Suggest you go back to factory default settings by unplugging each phone for about 10 seconds then re-connect. also with main phone switch off power for 10 seconds and switch back on.
