Question about NEC Electra Elite 32D-1 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Difficulty reading screen

I have a NEC DTU-8D-1A telephone. The screen on it is very hard to read becasue each block of LCDs for a character is so dark that all you see is a series of black rectangles across the screen. It seems as if the contrast or brightnees is turned up too much - is there an adjustment for either the brightness or contrast?

I'd appreciate your help!

Re: Difficulty reading screen

As an FYI....The arrow keys control many things,
If not in use, they control the contrast.
If ringing, it adjusts ringing.
when using handset or speaker, it adjusts volume.

Unplug the line cord. While holding down the * and # keys, plug the line cord back in. Release the * and # keys.

Follow the directions on-screen, which will test all display modes, buttons, and sounds for both red and green colored LEDs.

If the feature button continues to flash, press it and then lift the handset and hang up.

This phone is a proprietory digital phone that only works with a KSU. You would need an IPK or Elite phone system to make it work. You would also need to program it. This is a business office system and that phone will not work unless it is plugged into the system.
