Question about GE 29488GE2 Corded Phone
For no reason at all the Line 1 light comes on. We have 4 of these phones. The only way I can fix it now is to disconnect the power cord. Any ideas? Thanks!
First, it is normal for the line 1 light to quickly flash once every hour or so while it scans all of the phones. If the light is staying on though then this is a problem.
Look at all of the phones. All will show a RED light except for one that will have a GREEN light lit up for line 1. The green lighted on line 1 means that this is the phone that believes it has the right to use the line. When one phone uses the line all of the others are given a signal through a sub carrier of line one to light up in the color red.
I would suspect that the problem phone is a wall phone unit. This is because the switch on this phone is fighting the weight of the receiver versus gravity. There is not much tolerance in these switches as you will notice if you gently put your finger on the receiver at the top of a wall hanging phone.
If it is a wall phone unit causing this problem you can do 1 of 3 things.
1- you can switch this phone to a desktop so gravity is not working against you but for you.
2 - you can put an ugly looking spacer on the button so it pushes in farther.
3- you can try to perform inside surgery on the phone to adjust the tension of the spring on this button.
