This phone does not allow you to change the ringer tone. You can change the volume (page 18), the voicemail tone (page 36) and the incoming call tone number (page 42). For full details see the referenced pages in the manual.
When you bought the phone system, it was either installed by a professional installer, or you got some sort of instructions. A Panasonic phone system of the TDA/TDE/NCP type rings phones by Incoming Call Distribution Groups (ICD). The main group is 1 and usually is numbered 601. Extensions are members of an ICD group(s) and the number of rings can be programmed for No Ring, Immediate ring, or delayed rings of 1-6.
You can turn off the ringing, but keep in mind that CallerID only displays on a ringing phone or after you answer it. So, if you somehow have access to program 620 and 621, then you can change it from a phone, if not, you'll need access to the maintenance console of your particular phone system.
I don't wish navigating in 620/621 from a phone on my worst enemy and it's beyond the scope of a free forum to instruct you on how it works. I suggest you call your Panasonic service tech.
You have 4 different modes of calling available to be programmed: DAY NIGHT BREAK and LUNCH. Your installer has to set up the ICD groups, but you can create a LUNCH group which looks like the day mode but rings all phones. The codes are accessed by dialing on the intercom *780x where 0 is day 1 is night 2 is lunch and 3 is break.
You may use the NIGHT mode in the daytime, but if you have voice mail, it will play the night greeting instead of a day greeting.
This phone is made to work on a Panasonic phone system. Are you connecting it to a Panasonic phone system or just a normal phone line?
If you do not have a Panasonic phone system I doubt this phone will do anything (just as you describe) If you do have a Panasonic system do you have other phones that start with KX-T7??? on the system and have you tried this phone in one of the ports another phone is currently working on?
