Just fixed mine tonight. Follow instructions on http://www.linux-hacker.net/InfoGlobe/ for globe removal. I used a .020" feeler guage. The solder joints on the small circuit board at the end of the arm are subject to vibration from operation and about a bazillion revolutions before failing. You'll need a good quality soldering iron with a fine tip, some solder wick, a bit of patience and a bright light and some reading glasses will not hurt. I removed the solder and then the small board. I'm using an 800 degree tip, so with something like that you want to get on/off the pads as fast as reasonably possible so you don't cook it. Then I re-tinned the traces and re-soldered the small board onto the end of the arm. At first it didn't want to light up, but on depressing the "Select" button, all was good. Happy to have ol' blue back up and running again :~)

    Just fixed mine. http://www.linux-hacker.net/InfoGlobe/ was very useful. Mine was much simpler. The inner cover was rubbing the rotor, which probably caused the display to light at the wrong time. I just reseated the inner cover and all is good.

Message counter displays more than I have saved


I think you might be confusing the counter that keeps rack of caller ID information, and the counter that tracks messages stored in the answering machine - two different things, different purposes.

The answering machine part displays "new messages", but can store "old messages". For the caller ID part, look for a button on the handset that says "caller ID" - hit that, and then there will be a scroll up/down pair of buttons - you can look through your received caller IDs. Their may be a delete button on the phone (It's not clear what model you have), which will allow deleting that caller ID out of memory, but if not, having viewed the numbers, your "20" on the message counter should reduce.

I just received KX-T7730 phone with an LCD screen and it is not showing the caller ID # that is dialing in. It only displays CO 1. The previous phone similar to KX-T7730 shows the caller id #. So how can I...


The one who can show the caller ID when someone call is the caller only. He/she can set to hide his/her number ID in their phone so we can't see it. We can't force to see this caller ID, but if this calls disturbed you, you can install call blocker and only allow certain incoming call to be recieved.

Hope his help and rate please.

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888. In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-

If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.

When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)

When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.

You may receive any one of the following messages:

When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data

The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.

Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have three handsets and two of the phones caller id is not show


yes if its fading out .its possible that the battery is causing this.also other possibility is that the internal cicuit of the device is moistened or may be needs to be resoldered as some connections may be loosened up too. its a common problem and will get fixed once above things are checked 1 by 1. thanks.

My wife has a Nokia 6650 and when people call the number is displayed but he name won't she is getting very upset and the book sucks.


Caller ID works by displaying the caller infomation that is sent. When you receive the caller ID, it first tries to pair it up with a name in the address book, and if nothing is found, it just displays the number.
If you want the contact's name to show, then you must save it exactly as the caller ID displays it. Most often, only 7 digits are put in, when it needs to be the full 10 digits.

No Caller ID on display


To set up call id you need to enter programming by pressing the feature key followed by **266344.When prompted to enter the password enter 266344.
The screen should say TERMINALS&SETS. The 4 top line/feature keys are now used for programming.
At the terminals&sets prompt, press the show key (top right arrow). The display should now ask for an extension number. Enter extension number you wish to program call log on. Press the show key (top right arrow)
Press the next key (bottom right arrow) 5 times. The display should say TELCO FEATURES.
Press the show key (top right arrow) 2 times. The display should say CALLED ID: N(or Y)Press the change key til it says Y.
press the release key.
that should do it providing you have caller id service though your local telco provider.

Caller ID does not work


I FIXED IT!!!  YIPEEE!!

What I did was UNPLUG the base's power unit from the wall... waiting about one minute, and plugged it back in.  That caused it to "reboot" the entire system, and the CID now shows itself.
