Defaults to Line 2

When I plug the phone line into the socket marked 1+2 it defaults to line 2. Hence when I plug the 2nd line into the 2nd line socket it sits over the top of the other line.

How do I get L1+L2 to default to L1

Do you have a second phone? Be sure that phone is not defaulting to line 1. With 2 lines and 2 phones, each phone defaults to one of the lines.
Unplug the phones. Plug in the phone you want to default to line 1 using the L1+L2 jack. Now plug in the second phone.

After a power outage, when I am on one line and the 2nd line rings, I hear the ring on line 1 as a loud clicking noise. What could be the problem? Thanks


Check the lines using a hardwired phone plugged into the master sockets, remove any extensions if possible and listen again. Make sure if you have any ADSL filters installed they are removed and the broadband router if you use one.

if the problem persists you'll need to call the Service provider.

Sound like a short issue between the two lines.

Check TEL line


Is that what appears on the screen?

If so it means that it's not seeing the phone line.

1. Plug in a basic phone to make sure the line really is working.
2. Check the phone cord is connected to the correct socket (probably marked line)
3. If still no line change the cord and make sure that it suits the pin-out of your country. Most of the world uses pins 3 and 4 but the UK uses 2 and 5 on it's wacky BT flat plug. Israel uses this BT plug but uses pins 3 and 4 !!

I can not access my main line


If a system defaults programming it assigns only lines 1 and 2 to each set.
You either had this issue or somebody removed line 3.
Call a tech in to program.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...


Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.

TIP: IF REGISTRATION FAILED, REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

Well, there is a lot of things to do.

First, here is how to do Auto Line Select.

Is it only 1 phone that should be making outgoing calls? Or is it not place any outgoing calls ONLY on line 3?

RE: NEC DTP-2DT 2 Line Digital Phone HandSet


i believe the nec dtp-2dt maybe a phone system phone for offices. you didn't mention if it's for home or office use.a phone system phone will not work in a regular phone jack. it needs to go thru a phone system. also if you buy any 2 line phones, you need 2 lines for both lines to work. you can also have a 2 line phone with only 1 line and order a 2nd line if needed
hope this helps

You can try the following:

Restoring the Defaults
This feature allows you to reset all the menu settings to the original default settings.
1. Press the MENU button.
2. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to RESTORE SET.
3. Press SELECT.
4. Use the REVIEW  or to scroll to YES.
5. Press SELECT to save. To start over, press EXIT to return to the RESTORE SET menu.

If this does not help, and the cord is good (use another phone to test), then the phone is bad.

Hope this helps.
