Caller ID Stopped Working - Think the phone needs to be reset?

We have the RCA 4 line Model 25414 in our office. One of the phones Caller ID function stopped working. After some basic searching I discovered that one of the options regarding caller ID in the menu dissapered. It is the "No Unknown/Blocked" setting which should show up in
MENU-->Set Phone Options-->No Unknown/Blocked but it's not there. I took out the phone lines, unplugged the phone and removed the batteries. I was hoping after I plugged everything back in the menu would be reset but no such luck. I was thinking this phone probably has a hidden advanced menu or a hard reset? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Caller ID Stopped Working - Think the phone needs to...

Not sure why this worked, but I went to the Menu and the Set Area Code selection. The area code setting was blank, so I entered my area code and saved it. Caller ID started to work again. As a test, I went back to the Set Area Code selection and deleted the area code and saved it. It is currently still working. Seems really odd, but it worked for me.

I cannot get the caller ID to work on all phones. We are currently using 4 phones in the office and the caller ID works on 3 of the 4.

The RCA 25413 phone does not have caller ID capability. I have included a link where you can download the manual. On page 16 of the manual it says in a note that caller ID does not apply to the 25413 model phone.

According to the manual, the RCA 25413 does not support Caller ID. I have provided a link where you can download the manual. The manual is for model numbers 25413 and 25414. On page 8 it details how to turn caller ID on/off for each line under Ringer Tone heading item 6 Note, but the note says it does not apply for model 25413. Hope this helps.

Lines 2,3 & 4...caller ID working fine. Line 1 says ''No DATA'' when I get calls... how can I fix it ?

Call your phone company as see if they have caller ID on that line. If it works on all of the other lines then the phones seem to be wroking properly so I'd go to the phone company.

RCA 25414 message light... doesn't

I have 6 of these phones. No problem for a year or so, then one phone got the message light stuck on. Tried some online suggestions without success. Powering down etc. failed to fix it so I stuck a piece of tape over the led.

A couple of weeks ago line 2 failed (externally) and ATT sent a tech out who repaired it and also cleaned up the line. When the line came back, all 6 phones had the message light stuck on!

Talked with the tech here and with the ATT support and nothing worked. Eventually the tech here left as it was not a line fault - but he said he would leave the problem open.

That evening a young ATT guy called. He tried a number of different settings and changes - he was really determined! He called Kentucky and Minnesota and part of the advice was "give up and don't call the customer back"!

Finally he found a configuration option in the central office switch (exchange) for the line called CWMI (Call Waiting Message Indicator). Apparently this option was originally active but was changed when the local trunk was upgraded to fibre over the last year or so.

Once he enabled this option (we have call waiting and caller ID on call waiting on this line), the message lights on all the phones turned off and have worked normally since (10 days), including the one that was "broken" for over a year!

I really credit the tech with persistance on the issue.

Hope this helps someone else out there.

Regards, Hugh

KX-TG6071M 5.8 GHz talking caller id not working

Hi trinigirl, You should not have to do anything to make the caller id information come through. There is no programming to perform for the regular caller id identification on your display after the second ring (it takes at least one ring cycle for the digital information to pass through). Your model also has the talking caller id function, which will announce in English the callers name or a custom name you can prepare in the phone book of handset number 1. With all that said, you are not getting caller id showing after the second ring, then your phone is bad (which is pretty rare for this symptom), or your phone line still does not have caller id activated. To troubleshoot your problem you need another phone line with working caller id and/or a different phone that is known good to pass caller id. That way you can interchange the phones/lines to see if it is your line or your phone. My guess it is your line somehow, though I have fixed phones that won't pass caller id, but rarely. If it is your phone, try rebooting it, thats about all you can do short of sending it in for repair. Let me know how it goes. CG

Caller ID not working

This is a Definity system phone. The phones themselves have nothing to do with caller ID, it's the system that handles it. The phone line has to have the caller ID service AND the phone system needs to collect the information and then display it on your phone. If you are sure caller ID service is available on the phone line you are using than this is a programming issue. Definity is a huge system and you cannot program it yourself. Someone in your building is either in charge of making simple changes in the phone system or contacting the company that makes these changes for you.
