Re: LINE 1

You can try the following:

Restoring the Defaults
This feature allows you to reset all the menu settings to the original default settings.
1. Press the MENU button.
2. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to RESTORE SET.
3. Press SELECT.
4. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to YES.
5. Press SELECT to save. To start over, press EXIT to return to the RESTORE SET menu.

If this does not help, and the cord is good (use another phone to test), then the phone is bad.

Hope this helps.

Why is line 1 line is red if it is not in use and line is dead

If line one is red then the phone is not seeing the dial tone for that line. I would replace the phone cord from the phone to the jack first. If no change have the jack tested to verify the line is working at that location.

The intercom button keeps flashing red and green and it will not let us use it. It says Error: Inhibited

If you have more than one phone then its probably flashing because the phone ID is the same as another phone on your system or not setup up yet with an ID just has two dashes (--). or you if you have more than one phone on the system and have more than 2 lines coming into the phone, they all have to be on line 1 together in the first port on the back. Communication between sets are done on line 1

RCA 25205 wont answer correctly

Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

I have RCA Executive Serices 4 lin system Phone and I used to use headset all of sudden I hace message saying " Error: inhibited ". Would you plaese help fix my problem. Thanks for your...


I had the "error: inhibited" problem with my RCA 4-line Executive Series phone as well.
When I checked the line from the phone to the wall outlet, I saw that it had come undone.
After I plugged the phone back into the wall, it started working normally again.

I recommend substituting in a different, known-good telephone to see if that works.
If you can't get any phone to work plugged into that extension, then the extension is dead.
If another phone works but your RCA still will not, then the problem is with the RCA phone.

A similar idea is to try moving your RCA phone, substituting it in place of a working phone.
If it works in room X but not in room Y, suspect the phone wiring running to room Y.

This phone employs a common but awkward means of wiring up lines two and four.
Line two is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line one.
Line four is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line three.
A phone cord has four wires running through it, but a phone signal requires just two.
The piggybacking technique leverages the cable's free pair to feed a second line.

The upshot is that one can test the wiring for lines one and three with a simple, plain phone.
To test the wiring to lines two or four, some specialized knowledge is needed.
In place of that knowledge, a different two-line phone which also piggybacks might be used.

That's detail you'll need to consider only if your problem is specific to line 2 and/or line 4.

Anyhow, I hope I'm not patronizing by being too simple. But, I had this problem too.
It turned out to have nothing to do with the phone itself; the signal wiring to it was bad.

I realize that this feedback is a bit late and that you've likely already resolved your issue.
Perhaps this feedback will someday help somebody else (since these Q&As are archived).

unplug the phone, remove any batteries, and unplug the phone cord, wait ten minutes, and replace batteries, plug it back in and it should reset it.
