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

1 Answer

Will Not go to voice mail

We have 10 NEC Electa Elite DTU 16D-2 phones and 6 have voice mail. We are not able to get to our voice mail when press the preprogramed button nor when we dial the mailbox number. Also, when our work day is through, we put the phone on "night ring" so the incoming calls will go straight to selecting the extensions to leave a voice mail. It does not work; it keeps ringing and ringing. Could someone please help?

Re: Will Not go to voice mail

Jennifer209, if you press FEATURE + the button VM is pre-programmed on what does it display? It should show the extension number pilot to VM. If you call it directly, what happens? If you get no answer calling it directly, your VM may be down.

Kaait, is it getting into the VM that's the problem, or doing things inside the mailbox that is the problem?

Need to reset nec phone

Easiest way to reset the phone is to unplug it then plug it back in. If you are talking about resetting the voicemail associated with the phone extension, that's a little more involved.If you need the voice mail reset, you need to have the voice mail administrator (typically the receptionist) go into his/her voice mail and choose the MGR option if using the display "softkeys" and follow the prompts to reset the users security code or voice mail acct. If softkeys aren't available, follow the voice prompts to "system manager" and either delete the security code or reset the extensions voice mail entirely.
