Question about Panasonic KX-TA308 Phone

1 Answer

Hi - I'm just in the process of upgrading from a Panasonic TA206 to a TA308, and I have assigned names/numbers for each extension. Extensions 1-4 are working fine, but I'm getting no life out of 5 and 6. These don't get a system tone, or a dialing tone. I've tried using different cables and still nothing. I know its not the patch panel, that's in use all the time through the TA206 and I know its not the cable as that is working fine when used in extensions 1-4, and I doubt if its the PBX as that's new. Any ideas?

Now here's a problem. What country? In the U.S., the TD-308 came carded 3x8 with 4 universal ports and 4 digital ports. You could plug a digital phone into ports 5-8 or buy the extra card to get analog PITS phones into the ports.

That said, check your installation manual. Here's a little insight into the various Pana products throughout the world. Since your TA-308 and our TA-308 aren't the same, I can't help you much.

KX TA308 how to disable 2 locals Ring sametime

There are two possibilities, you have to check to confirm. Either the two were physically wired in parallel or through programming they were configured to ring simultaneously. Start by checking if the two were physically wired in parallel. One way would be to establish how many extensions you have altogether and is it equal or less than the total number of extension ports available on the KX-TA308?

How can I change line voltage from 24V to 48V in KX-TA308 ?

Why? A TA-308 as well as all Panasonic systems run on 24 volts, even the TDA/TDE. The quickest way to do that, and very expensive, was a Proctor Long Line Adapter (46222/46224). The only time we ever had to use one was to bring up the line voltage of a Merlin Legend extension to interface to a Panasonic system we were using as a factory intercom. The intended purpose is for off-premise extensions as they provide high voltage ringing and protect the system it's attached on.

Proctor is long gone, but Viking Electronics makes an exact replacement. Here are the specs They also run about $500 for 4 ports.

How do i change the names on the extensions on my kx-dt343 so when i hit the button to call that line it shows the right name?

From the phone connected to extension 101, press PROG and dial **1234 If the display responds Sys Prog #, then dial 004 and enter. It's the menu to assign names to extensions. You can sort of follow along and use the arrows, the keypad, and the ENTER and SAVE buttons to step through the names and change them.

I reached the limit of the ports on my TDA100 and I have users who need extensions. I want them to share phones. the process is when they come, they log on using an extension number and PIN. if they leave,...

It's fairly hard to -believe that you have used 64 or 128 extensions on a TDA-100, but I don't think it's possible to change extensions without having access to system programming.

In my convoluted mind, it might be possible to set up Incoming Call Distribution groups and log in and out of them to make a phone ring in the ICD group. If they're to only ones in the group, you could start assigning 6xx digits to those phones and they could set a button to light and the phone to ring when that 6xx number is dialed.

Either way, those solutions are beyond the scope of a free forum. Check with you Panasonic dealer/installer for possibilities.

Hi, Can you help me my problem. I Need programming manual for KX-ta308. Specially for the restriction of outgoing calls on local extensions. Already downloaded a manual but cannot find outgoing...

Under alphabetic FEATURES, look at TRS (Toll Restriction) and COS (Class Of Service). It explains the concept of call restriction and how to program it.

We have a different 308 in the US, one that was built on a 624 platform, so a 624 features set will work, it just has a smaller number of lines :-)

Hi would like to know how to set an extension not to ring when any of the co lines is ringing since i have a fax machine connected to this extension and it is programmed to answer automatically

Ringing for each extension and line is done in Panasonic system programming commands 408-410 for Day/Night/Lunch. You turn off ringing for all lines to your fax extension and then just turn on one line for that phone.

Be sure to turn off or delay the fax line ringing to all the other extensions at the same time.

I want to call other extensions using our KX-TA30850 phones. Can you help?

If it's really a TA-308 cabinet, then the dialing plan is the same as a TA-624 or 824. The extensions are numbered 101-108.
