Try this first and get back to me. Take that phone, and plug it into an existing extension. If is works correctly, then the problem is in the cabling, programming or that it isn't accessing the system as a digital set. If it continues to blink, then the phone is bad. Please let me know

Why all all Nortel phones blinking and can not call its seems the PBX get damaged?

This is usually an indication of the phone system resetting for some reason. If it doesn't clear try power cycling the phone system for a couple of minutes.

Swap M7310 for T7316e? We have M7310 Phones and We would like to use some new T7316e I don't' know what the Phone system is I know they have a couple Analog incoming phone lines and only 7 phones. I see...

Most likely you can swap the phones. On older systems it might not work so I would try one first. You do gain extra buttons which can be programmed as desired. Any buttons you had on your M7310 would be on the T7316e. You can check the buttons by pressing Feature *0 this will allow you to check any button on the phone.

We lost power and when our Meridian M8X24 phone system with T7316E phones came back up we only have access to 2 lines. How do we gain access to the other lines again.

Sounds like your norstar system needs to be reprogrammed because norstar defaults back to only 2 lines when the inturnal battery fails.If the inturnal battery has failed and you reprogram this phone system and you have another power fail you will have to have you system reprogrammed again.Time for new system.

Trying to switch the extension number.

On the newer norstar systems the T7208 and lower phones can not be used for programming.The T7316e phone has to be used for programming therefore feature 983 will only work on the T7316e set.To change local dn's you have to go into config programming and to change dn old dn then new dn.

System startup

Sounds like the power is going off and on in your system or phone. The blinking lights are a boot up sequence. If this happens on just one phone, try changing the line cord, try swapping phones to see if the problem follows a phone or stays at the port. If all phones do this at the same time.... Make sure the power cord is plugged in tightly on your main control unit, maybe change the outlet the system is plugged into. You could also get a UPS battery backup power for a computer and use that to help resolve this problem AND keep your system up and running for short periods in a power outage. If it is not a power issue, there may be a serious problem with your main control unit and you should get a local technician to look at it. If this is a rare occurrence it will be harder to locate.
