Question about Lands Phones

Down line connects

I've been told we have a Toshiba CHSUB672A. Our company ordered 4 "down lines" from the local phone company. The "down lines" are direct lines into our location from a remote location. So, when someone from the remote location lifts the handset from these particular phones they do not need to dial or anything; it will just ring on our end. I can hook these lines as a CO into the system and when someone lifts those remote handsets it will ring a line on the phone. My problem is that the phones can have a max of 7 lines? We already have 6 COs and now adding the 5 "down lines
' How can I integrate these lines into the system.

When you say "down lines" I assume you mean private lines also called direct lines from one office to another. These lines must have a dedicated device or assigned location at each end. You will not be able to multiplex these on top of what you all ready have assigned to local numbers. If your phone system has a KSU which feeds multiple devices, it's possible that it can be programed to to have a different ringing identity for these private lines. Sorry I couldn't provide any better information than that .Jer

Every time we use the water feature the water line is now flooding our floor I have narrowed it down to one part of the water line the blue connector how do I replace that or get a replacement what part...

Is this a 1/4" line or 5/16" line? You can cut the line at the leak, cut the bad or cracked part out and put a shark bite/quick connect in its place to reconnect the two cut ends. You can find the quick connect at any of your local hardware or big box stores.

RCA visys dect 6.0 Line 2's light is lit and no dial tone. All handset are in off mode. Only Line 1 is available

Are the phone cables correctly connected to the base unit? Try a new cable for Line 2, if you have separate L1 and L2 jacks. (If the lines are integrated in one jack, make sure to use a 4-conductor RJ11 cord.) I assume the service hasn't been cancelled for line 2 and that you are at a wall plate with both lines.
If you have separate jacks, I like to use a different phone to check the jack. (A simple old fashioned corded, single-line phone is useful to check for a dial tone.) Try checking Line 2 at another jack, if you have one.
If you do not have a dial tone, find where your service comes in. Open the box and look at the terminals. If you are lucky, you have an RJ11 port. Plug in your test phone in to the Line 2 connection and listen for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, contact your telephone company. They will fix an outside line problem for free. (Mice and other things can damage the wiring. A lightning strike could damage a filter if you use the line for a high-speed internet connection.) If the terminal doesn't have an RJ-11 plug option, you will need to ask your telephone company to test the line.
If you recently had work done on the phone line, check for any wires that are loose. When we got our phone line upgraded to fiber optics, one of the telephone jack lines didn't get connected to the terminal in the new box. We found the wire behind the vinyl siding and got signal as soon as the wire was reconnected.)
If you have a dial tone at the box and no wires are obviously disconnected, you'll need to trace the wires inside to find a broken connection. If one jack worked for Line 2 and another didn't, check inside the wall plate. There are two wall-plate styles. The ones with a keystone jack needs the conductor wires pushed down into the correct slots. A punch-down tool is available from most hardware stores in the wiring section. The screw terminal type requires the individual wires to be stripped and then secured. The correct terminal positions are shown here: . Otherwise, you need to trace the wires in the walls to find the break in the continuity. Your phone company will do this for you for a fee. If you have a line filter inside, try replacing it.

I hope this helps.

PLease help me. Belkin belkin 7bc1d7 is looking for the isp username and password. I called the isp and was told no username is needed to connect it. please help I dont know what to do

The only time you don't need a user name and password to connect to your broadband/adsl company is if they supply your phone/internet/tv by cable rather than by the telephone line. If this is the case, you would have a modem supplied by the company and you would simply plug your pc/router into this.

If your internet comes down your phone line, you would normally need a user name and password. Only they can tell you what it is.

Unfortunately the phone system will not work until the phone lines are repaired, but what you could do is contact your local phone company by cell phone and explain the situation to them and see if they can speed up the repairs. Good Luck to you and your Mom.

Toshiba Strata DK280 Conference Phone

Are you talking about a special speakerphone that is not made by Toshiba? This would be a single line phone device not a proprietary Toshiba phone and you would need a special card in your system that can handle single line devices. You may already have one that has a free port on it.

However, it does sound like you would need to find help from a local phone system installation company. You cannot plug a single line phone into any phone port on your system. A special wire would need to be run just for that phone and the system would need to be re-programmed for that port. If you need a single line card it will be even more complicated.
