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.

I had unplugged the phone line and when i reconnected it, no dial tone, nothing on the screen and the triangle shapes blinking on the display

Why doesn't ANYBODY here specify what system? It sounds like a Nortel on restart though. If it IS and it IS a valid extension then plug it in and just let it blink for several minutes before doing anything else.

All of a sudden the line lights on our nortel switch Meridian M7310 phones started blinking and the lines are dead. Any ideas?

If you only have one line,why not just lose the Nortel system? You can reuse the wiring from the phone sets to the contoller as regular inside wire,and just plug in regular phones(and maybe put the Nortel phones and controller on EBay and make a few bucks off it!)

I have a brother 680 Fax macine I get a dial tone...I dial, it rings when I press start button- it won't fax - It says "Transission Error"-what I am doing...

Is the phone line plugged into the LINE jack? If it was accidentally plugged into the EXT jack (for extension phone), it will allow you to hear the dial tone and dial, but as soon as you press Start, it cuts off the extension phone, which, in this case, would be the phone line. Your call goes dead, and you get an error.

I hope it's that simple. If the line is already in the LINE jack and you have this problem, it's serious. Probably needs a new main board.

But you can try wiping out all the memory, just in case it's a temporary glitch causing the problem. Here's how:

Get into Maintenance Mode by pressing
Black Start

The display should read MAINTENANCE, and all the lights should be blinking in unison. If not, touch Stop and try it again. It will beep at you as if you're making a mistake; ignore the beeps and plow through without waiting to see what the display says.

Once in Maintenance Mode, press the numbers 91 on the dialing pad. Sit back for a few seconds while the machine initializes everything in its memory, except the phone numbers stored in it. When the display is back to MAINTENANCE, press 99 to exit Maintenance Mode. The machine will go through it's startup procedure, as if you just plugged it in.

Try sending a fax. If nothing has changed, try the memory clear procedure again, except instead of touching 91, try 01. That clears everything back to the state it was in when you first pulled it out of the box. You'll have to re-enter the date & time and your phone numbers.

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...

Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.


Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.
