Two different options,... Call the extension, and while it is ringing, press the volume down bar until you can no longer hear it ringing. You can also try this... Leaving the handset down, do Feature * 80, adjust the loudness for ringer volume by pressing the volume bar.
Ringing is assigned in system programming, very little chance it was changed by mistake. If Do-Not-Disturb was turned on, that could make a phone stop ringing. If it's just one line on a phone, maybe the system got put in night mode by mistake and night programming isn't identical to day ring. If you have direct access to the phone line check it for dial tone. Often virtual lines are used and you can't check for direct dial tone. On very rare occasion the ringer stops working, which can't be fixed.
If you recently dialed 4-0 or 4-1, those are Do Not Disturb and Call Forward codes. if this is what happened, then dial the cancel code for both, which is 4-2. This is with internal dial tone, don't grab an outside to do this. You could have someone dial your extension to test if the ringer is faulty. if their call comes in as voice announce, have them add a 1 to their dial sequence and their call should switch to audible ring, and you will know it's not a ringer issue. Adding a 1 can be done continuously if you want to switch back and forth.
Ringing is assigned in system programming, so if your phone doesn't ring you can't change that unless you have person on site who works on the system at that level. Some places use the night mode feature to make certain phones ring in day mode, and others to ring in night mode. Not very likely but sometimes the mode gets switched at places who don't realize they have another mode, suddenly only 2 phones ring instead of ...5. Feature,80,Feature, is the code to switch back and forth on a Pro II, an Elite, and an IPK system. This would be done at the reception phone. These phones also work on several other systems so don't know if this works for you. Or maybe you set Do Not Disturb, which would keep your ringer off.
Here some solutions for your problem + a link to the user manual.
