Panasonic KX-T7668 handsets. How to make different extensions ring / not ring on an in-coming call.


The first thing to check is the total "Ring Equivalent Number" or "REN". This is a maximum number that your line will support. For example if the line REN maximum is 4, then it will support 4 phones with a REN of 1 (4x1=4). If, however, you have 3 phones with a REN of 1.5 each then it won't work (3x1.5=4.5). It may work on 2 of them and not the 3rd one, but equally it may work on one or none at all.
The REN is usually on a label on the phone or in the manual, but the line REN is set by your supplier and you will need to contact them for that number.

Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.

Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

I can not locate how to limit the number of rings; and the answering machine does not come on even after 20 rings; I can hear my message recording- when I play it back; but it does not come on for incoming...


Ring count You can change the number of times the phone rings before the unit answers calls. The default setting is "4 rings". "Toll saver": The unit answers on the 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, and on the 4th ring when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages, you will know that there are no new messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.

Would like to increase number of rings before answering machine comes on.


Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.
  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.

No manual to the FM2575 and I need to reset the rings total


The number of rings (2/4/toll saver) is set by a switch on the side of the base on the FM2575. From the picture, it looks like the number of rings switch is on the back near the ring volume switch.

ManualsLib has the manual for the Southwestern Bell FM2575 here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/164165/Southwestern-Bell-Fm2575.html . See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/164165/Southwestern-Bell-Fm2575.html?page=9#manual (page 17) for the directions. Alternatively, see http://phone.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/southwestern_bell/integrated_speakerphone_telephone_with_caller_idcall_waiting_and_digital_answering_system_model_fm_2575.html . Page 5 has the image of the switches.

I hope this helps.

How to program a line to ring keysets


Not sure if I understand your question correctly, but I think I just learned how to do that on an electra professional. Memory block 4-1-1 lets you go through each of the internal extensions, and you can set each extension to ring when a call comes in from any/some/all of the outside lines.
to reach memory block 4-1-1, I used a multi line terminal connected to ports 1. Press fnc => hold => # => 0 => * => line key 4. Use the fcn(?) key to cycle through the internal ports, the line key buttons to map each of the 4 lines (presumably line keys 1 through 4 on your system).
As to where to get a manual, I am not sure, I have 3 thick binders... good luck

This si str8 from the manual! The Ring Delay sets the number of times the MFC rings before it answers in Fax Only or Fax/Tel mode. If you have extension phones on the same line as the MFC or subscribe to the telephone company?s Distinctive Ring service, keep the Ring Delay setting of 4. 1 If it is not illuminated in green, press (Fax). 2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 1. 3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select how many times the line rings before the MFC answers (00, 01, 02, 03 or 04).
