Printer Trouble error message on NEC DTH-16D-1(BK)


Hello jlaverty,
Did you ever figure out how to fix this?

We just had a long power outage last night and our phone system wasn't accepting outside calls this morning. We reset it, which fixed the problem after 10 minutes or so of waiting.

The new mystery is why the admin phone is now flashing this "Printer Trouble" error message.

How to change time on NEC Electra Elite IPK? I

You have to be on the root phone or "first phone".
To check various phones -Hit {feature} 4.
Should display 100= TEL 01. Once on the first phone then use {feature} 9 #.
Time will flash at top of display and can be adjusted.

If you are not on the first phone you will get error at the top of the display. Leave the hand set on the hook.

Change the time on dth 16D-1

If this is an NEC Elite system, you must be on a phone with "attendant" features. By default they are on ports 1 and 2. Try and find an ext 10, 100, 1000 or something like that. Pressing Feature - 4 tells you what port the phone is.
