Question about Samsung Prostar 816 Phone

1 Answer

Phone "beeps" loudly when the handset is lifted.

Gradually some the phones in our office have begun to beep when the handset is lifted. It started with one and now it is three. We can't figure out what has happened to create this issue. It doesn't seem to affect the other functions, it's just incredibly annoying. Any suggestions?

    Sorry--I forgot to add they are Samsung Prostar 816 phones...your advice listed to fix the "only one phone rings" issue worked great so I thought you might know about this one, too.

The phone has its background music turned on. To turn it back off press the hold key while the handset is on-hook.

No link to base

This may help. It's from the Panasonic help page:

You may try to:

Disconnect AC power adapter from the back/bottom of base unit, then connect it again properly.
spacer.gif OR, to resolve this issue, you have to re-register the handset.
  • To do this on a non-expandable cordless phone:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the phone base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

  • To do this on a expandable cordless phone system:
    Press and hold the LOCATOR/INTERCOM button for the extension that is displaying "No Link To Base" on the Base until a beep sounds.
    Press and hold the FLASH/CALL WAIT button on the Handset that is displaying "No Link To Base" until a beep is heard.
    When registration is complete, a beep sounds from the handset.
    Wait for 20 seconds after registration is complete to allow the handset to establish communications with the base.
    If this fails to help:
    Remove the AC Adapter from the base or wall outlet for a few seconds and reconnect. It may also be necessary to remove the battery from the handset for a brief moment.

Remote ring detection provides a low tone * triple beep in your wireless headset when you receive an incoming call. This feature requires a handset lifter accessory, such as the Plantronics HL1 or HL10. If you do have a handset lifter but do not hear the remote ring detection, please check the following:

  • Check the placement of the lifter. - Make sure the handset lifter positioned directly over the phone's speaker.

  • Try adjusting the phone's ringer volume. If the phone's ringer is too quiet, it may not trigger the ring detection built into the lifter. Try turning up the ringer volume of your phone.

  • Check the ring tone of the phone. - If your phone's ring tone provides short beeps or plays music, the lifter's microphone may not detect it. Try switching your ring tone to a traditional ring or long beep.

  • Does the phone have different rings? - For example internal calls vs external calls vs transferred calls. Does the phone ring the same for each type of these calls. If so try changing so all calls use the same tone.

  • Attach the optional "external ring detector" cable. This cable plugs into the lifter and provides a small, black microphone. It is included in the plastic bag of lifter accessories. Mount the microphone near your telephone's speaker. Click here for more details.

  • There are 2 versions of the Lifter accessory - HL10 and HL1. The HL1 is a larger older version of the liter with a more sensitive rind detector. Some phones will require the older version of the lifter.

  • Please view the On Line Compatibility Guide to see if the older version (HL1) will be required for your phone.


*Please note the volume of notification beep in the headset cannot be altered, it will always be a low tone triple beep .

RCA 4 line phone

Hi Richman,

If you have more than one phone line which I assume that you do -if one party has not completely hung up the handset after putting someone on hold when you pick it up on your end you will hear that beeping noise that you are talking about. Have them pick back up the line while you are on it and replace the handset again on thier phone to disconnect completely.

I hope this helps (trial and error)
Thanks
