Question about NorStar Meridian 9617 USB Telephone with Personal Voice Dialer (A0724060)

1 Answer

Is this service free? After a thunderstorm, our two Meredian 9516 phones will not work. The phone lights up and says extension in use but no dial tone, just a busy signal. Does the phone need to be reset, if so how do I do this. Thanks, Bill

Extension in use means there is not enough battery showing on the line. On our Nortel phone, unplugging the line cord gets the same result (actually check tel line because it's no voltage). Take a phone out to the demarc point outside and plug it into the jack there. If you don't have dial tone, report it to the telco. If you do, then you have an inside wiring problem.

Loud extension ringer used with Norstar Meridian phones will not ring. Any ideas why?

Most external loud ringers are analog and your phone is digital. You would also need a digital to analog converter and use an additional digital extension to make it work.

No dial tone, check line cord

Just that!
There is no dial tone at the jack or you have a bad cord.

CO button light was stuck so to clear it i pressed Prog, then CO button, then 2 (clear) and then enter. Doing this cleared the light but it also cleared the extension associated with it. I have re-added...

What was 2? Extensions are put in with a 1. The 2 is used for internal or speed dial calls (as in 29 plus a number gets you speed dial).

If you assign a digital station that is not in service to a button, you will get a busy light.

Cannot dial out on my Meridian 9516 telephone

Is the Program button on . If it is turn it off. You can also try resetting the phone by unplugging the silver line cord from the phone or the wall jack and then replugging it after about 10 seconds.
see if that works

We had a thunderstorm and a transformer was struck by lightening. I have no dial tone. Do I need another AC Adaptor. The display screen is blank. My other telephone worked ok when I plugged it up....

What all you need can be decided upon after eliminating the faulty items one by one. First the AC adapter. Check with another device if the adapter is functional. Or if you have a multimeter. Next the phone, try another adapter. Where from? Read the specs printed on the adapter. It will tell you the Input and output voltages. Then it also tells you about the frequency. Then the wattage. If all of them match or come close you can use it. Trip to the store is warranted. Thunderstorms and lightenings generally do not leave anything intact. So, I hope your phone is intact. Adapter can be replaced easily.

Inherited a NT5B05 3x8 with my house and I'm flumoxed...

By the year 2012 or 2013 it's not likely you will pay $20-30 for an additional land line instead of $10 for a cell phone :-)

The cabinet is a Digital Compact 308 for 3 outside lines and 8 digital extensions without caller ID. The system uses M7208/7310 and possibly 7324 phones. If you fetch $100 for it on eBay, I'd be amazed. Here's a stolen link to someone who has a description of one.

Can not view caller ID with call waiting service

The Meridian 9516 is not a visual call waiting (VCW) phone...meaning that you will not see the caller name and number of the second caller when you are on the must purchase a separate call display box (around $10) if you can still find them., but make sure that box is visual call display capable.

Phone connection problem

Yes, it looks like the thunderstorm has damaged your DTV unit because the DTV unit should only go off hook as a means of dialing the DTV Company. I would have that unit replaced. BTW, do not try to repair that DTV unit. I work for a Telephone company in the Maryland DC area and I can tell you there are no serviceable parts inside and the unit is not your to do that anyway. So call the DTV Company and have then replace the defective unit.
