Question about GE 2-9096GE1 Caller ID Unit Phone

Open Question

Works on one extension but not on the other

My unit works fine on one extension, but doesn't on another. The phones on both extensions work fine in all respects, but the caller ID just doesn't react at all. It just keeps saying "no calls."

Could some defect in the wiring keep the caller ID from working, yet allowing all of the phone's functions to work perfectly?

Anybody have any ideas?

The display went out on my lucent phone

If the extension still works then the LCD display has gone out. Replace the phone. If the extension doesn't work then move the extension wiring to a different port on the system. This will tell you if the port has gone bad.

We have a KX-TA624 phone system connected to a TVS50 voice processing system. I have one user who has a KX-T7730 phone and his message button wont light when a voice message is left for him. I know the...

The user may have brushed onto the 62x commands to change or turn off message notification. From the subcriber's mailbox, choose option 621 and make sure it's enabled, then 622 and make sure you're using option 2. (continuous). If neither of these work, have the owner log into mailbox 999 and make sure that the owner's extension of the broken extension matches the extension. That's option 611 mailbox number and follow the prompts. The extension is the mailbox.

I have a 974, 945, and 955 phones in a 2-line office. I am getting a squeal on the intercom when I call just one phone. It works fine between other phones. It worked for 2 years and then the squeal showed...

Check the battery on all the phones then make sure they are all programmed with different extension numbers. If the battery has been dead and you have had a power outage then it may have reset the phone to factory default extension 11.

Lucent Partner 34D phone system with 18D extensions

That doesn't sound good at all. I would first try powering down the system and waiting about 15 seconds or so before powering back up. If the problem remains, the processor was some how damagedand would be best if it was looked at by your vendor.

Extension call

You need to page an extension.
To program this on a button:
press feature 00
press the intercom you want to change (EX: ext 10)
press the right intercom and *10
press feature 00

To use, just press the button you just programmed. It will grab intercom and dial *10. Conversly, you can press intercom *10 to do the same.

KX-T7730 Picking up Problem

You are on the right track but the extension number is not " 0 ". There is an extension number associated with the operator phone just as your phone may be " Extension 101". If you have a display phone have the operator call you and look at your display for her/his extension number then when their phone is ringing, pick up your handset, dial 4 plus the extension number of the operator. Let me know how it works out. .....Mitelmike

Wireless phone extension not working on receiver. Red light and horrible sound hen connection is attempted

You need to register the unit it will work:
Make sure the Base Unit is switched on and has a Green light showing.
2. Unplug everything connected to the Base Unit sockets (you will reconnect them later).
3. Plug the Extension Unit into a power point near the Base Unit, switch on the power and watch the light on the Extension Unit.
4. If the light on the Extension Unit is not glowing a steady Red then the Extension Unit must first be deregistered. Follow Step A and Step B in
the Deregistering an Extension Unit box below then try to register the Extension Unit again.
5. Plug one end of a supplied line cord into to either socket on the Base Unit and plug the other end into the extra Extension Unit
(This cord is used to do the actual registering).
6. The light on the Extension Unit will glow Red for up to a minute and then change to Green or Yellow.
7. Once you have the Green or Yellow light on the Extension Unit, unplug the line cord between the Base Unit and the Extension Unit
(You can unplug the Extension Unit – it will remember being registered).
8. Plug in everything that used to be connected to the Base Unit sockets.
9. Install the extra Extension Unit as per the Extension Unit Installation steps on the other side of this page.
