What other phones work? Check the base cord and make sure it has 4 pins. If the jack works for other phones, then take that same cord and plug it into the base of the 7730. Worst case is that you take it directly to the phone system and plug it in there to see if it works.
Guessing that you already know about SYSTEM speed dials, then the 12 buttons on the right side of your phone are the PERSONAL speed dials. When you get dial tone on the intercom, you can dial "9" and the system will either give you a dial tone, or the highest line in the system. If that is not a working line, you need to fix that first (system program 400 assigns lines in service).
Once you have that, a PF button is programmed by pressing PROGRAM, the button, and dial 9 + your number dialed the same way as if you had pressed a CO button then STORE. You can keep pressing PF buttons and programming numbers. Then press PROGRAM or pick up the handset and drop it back down to end programming.
Under any system, you can always press PROGRAM + a button, dial a sequence and press STORE. What number are you dialing?
If it's an outside number, then the sequence is generally 29 on the left side or 9 on the right side buttons. If inside, then 1+ext on left and ext on right. The left side buttons have lights and will monitor extensions.
I could tell the base unit was about to go a few days ago. Have had the phone for years with intermittent problems but it has been for quite awhile now. However, the screen on the unit started to blink a bit a few days ago. Had a feeling it was about to go but the phone kept working until this morning when it suddenly dies. After reading that changeing the cord might work, I replace the unit power cord with one from my handset and the phone is working again! Thanks for the suggestion!
Have you tried the following
Use the telephone cord going in to machine on a regular telephone. If this works cord is fine. Plug cord back in to machine. Press the dial button on machine if you hear a dial tone check the settings for Pulse / Tone dialing (refer to manaul). If you don't here any dial tone the fax modem on the machine is faulty (posible lightning strike on telephone line. You will then have to take the machine in to a service centre.
Please feel free to uase the Repair Service Directory on this site to locate a service centre close to you.
I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?
Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck. Mac =)
