Hunt groups are set up by the service provider and not related to the phone system. In a 3 or 4 line hunt group, you're given a pilot number and 2 or 3 other lines. In some exchanges, you can dial any of the numbers and they will hunt to the rest of the numbers in the group....it's very rare. Instead, you must always dial the pilot number and each line is tested, with the first idle line being rung.

If your callers are getting a busy when the first line is busy and the other lines are idle, call the phone company and discuss your telephone plan. Tell them your lines won't hunt and they'll tell you why or fix it.

EL52500 Phone base & 4 handsets have static, message Line in Use. Bought new phone, charged, connected - it says no line. Have dial tone at phone line into house.


Sounds like your phone has a short. If you see the message "line in use" call your number, is it busy, now unplug your phone and call your number again, is it ringing? Indicates a short, possibly in your equipment. As for message " no line" is the electric connected to the phone and did you check for dial tone in tat particular jack with a known, working phone first...just to make sure there's dt @ the jack. Good Luck :)

Why can't I rec or make calls?


What is happening when a call comes in are they getting a busy signal? If so your line is shorted out.. unplug all phones and see if caller hears a ring.. Then 1 at a time plug phones in. Check for a dial tone and press a digit, hang up and check and see if dial tone returns, repeat this on all phones, until you get to the phone that does not give you dial tone back after dialing a digit. That will be your bad phone... If the line was ring busy after all phones unplugged, call repair service..

We have a 4-line system in our office, but it is not working properly. For instant, when line 4 rings...it only comes into one of the phones. All lines are working properly with dial tones. If we would...


Now here's a conflict. Does line 4 work on any other phone where it doesn't ring? You say all lines are working properly wiith dial tones, tnen you say you can't pick it up from another phone.

I don't think these phones have "private lines", but the dial tone comes from the 2nd RJ-14 jack on the wall. On every phone, you could swap the plugs so that line 1 comes into line 3 and line 3 comes into line 1 (you'll lose the intercom) and see if you get dial tone on line 2 which will be the phone that works line 4. The point being to determine if you have a wiring issue or a programming problem.

Can not receive or send faxes???


If your fax machine was working before this could be a line problem. Call your fax number with your cell phone or another phone. If you get a message phone the phone company or it just rings busy its probably a line problem. Another check is to plug your hand set into the wall outlet jack, you should hear the dial tone. If there is no dial tone its also a line problem. Or just try pluging your fax machine in at another location, if it works there you know its a line problem. If its still not working its going to be one of the boards inside the fax machine. Good luck.

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”
—OR—
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
—OR—
dial ** for next station/line ringing assignment
—OR—
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.

Telephone connection problem with DSL


unplug everthing from all jacks in the house. call your # a couple of times. if the line rings, plug everything in 1 at a time, but call again after each hook up. if the line goes dead or is busy, that phone you just plugged in is the problem. [ a short in the phone, computer, answer machine, or any piece of equipment plugged into the phone line.] if the line is busy when everything is unplugged, call your phone company. there maybe a problem with your inside wire.there also maybe a box [called a nid] inside your basment/garage or on the side of your house, where you can plug your phone directly in, bypassing all the jacks in your house
hope this helps.
