GETTING STARTED
The first time that you use your NBX telephone, you are prompted to set

GETTING STARTED
Setting Up Your
Voice Mail
Pick up the handset on your telephone and follow the voice prompts to
set up these voice mail features:
■
Your Password — When your telephone is first installed, your voice
mailbox has no password. To prevent anyone else from listening to
your messages, you must set a password.
■
Your Name Announcement — Your name announcement identifies
your mailbox to callers who use the internal telephone directory.
■
Your Personal Greeting — Your personal greeting is heard by all
callers when they reach your voice mail. Change your greeting as
often as necessary to let callers know that you are away from your
desk for an extended period of time, to say that you are on vacation,
and so on.
To set up voice mail:
1 Pick up the handset and press MSG (Message) button. You are prompted
to enter a personal password.
2 Enter a 4-digit to 10-digit password, and press #.
3 Press 1 to save the password or 2 to change the password. You are
prompted to record your name announcement.
4 Speak your name and extension number clearly into the handset’s
receiver, and press #.
Example: John Smith, extension 200.
5 Press 1 to save your name announcement or press 2 to re-record your
name announcement. You are prompted to record your greeting.
6 Record your greeting after the tone, and press #.
Example: Hello, you have reached __________(name)___________
of ___________(organization)__________ at ___(extension)____.
I am unavailable to take your call at the moment.
Please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the
tone, and I will return your call as soon as possible.
7 Press 1 to save your greeting or 2 to re-record your greeting. The voice
prompt verifies that you have set up your voice mail successfully:
Your account is active and ready to receive messages.
See Chapter 4 for information about changing your password and for
details about voice mail features.

VOICE MAIL
A key component of the NBX Networked Telephony Solutions is the
NBX Messaging System, which includes voice mail, off-site notification,
and several administrative features.
Voice mail allows callers to leave voice messages in your voice mailbox
when you are not able to answer your telephone. You can listen to, save,
and forward those messages from any touch-tone telephone. In certain
circumstances, you can also be notified about your voice mail messages
through your email.
The NBX system provides several types of voice mailboxes. The most
common type of mailbox is a personal voice mailbox, which is associated
with a specific telephone and a specific user. Other types of voice
mailboxes, which are described at the end of this chapter, include
greeting-only mailbox, phantom mailbox, and group mailbox.
You use the Off-Site Notification feature if you want the NBX system to
notify you when callers leave voice mail messages in your voice mailbox.
See “Off-Site Notification” in Chapter 6.
The steps for setting up personal, phantom, and greeting-only voice
mailboxes are the same. See “Setting Up Your Voice Mail” in Chapter 1
for details. Your administrator creates group mailboxes.
The default setting for maximum voice mail message length is 5 minutes.
Your administrator can configure your organization’s NBX messaging
system to receive and store voice mail messages that are up to 10
minutes long.
If your system uses a messaging application other than NBX Voice
Messaging (such as third-party messaging), use the documentation for
that messaging application instead of these instructions.

CHAPTER 4: VOICE MAIL
Accessing Voice
Mail Messages
Through E-mail
(NBX 100 and SuperStack 3 NBX) You can listen to your voice mail
from any computer that allows you to access your e-mail. Your e-mail
software must be IMAP compliant. Voice mail messages are sent as sound
files, so your computer must have a sound card. See your administrator
for assistance with this feature.
Greeting-Only
Mailbox
With a greeting-only mailbox, callers hear your message but cannot leave
a voice mail message.
Example:
■
In a school, teachers create a voice mail message that explains
homework assignments. Students call in to the greeting-only mailbox
to get the homework information but cannot leave a message for the
teacher on this mailbox.
■
An employee is taking an extended leave of absence and creates a
message stating the scheduled date of return and whom to call in the
meantime. Callers may be transferred to other extensions but are not
able to leave voice mail messages for this employee.
■
Your administrator may create greeting-only mailboxes for routine
company information, such as directions to your facility or hours of
business operation.
To change your voice mailbox to a greeting-only mailbox:
1 Log in to the NetSet utility.
2 Select the NBX Messaging tab.
3 Select Greeting Only Mailbox.
Consider changing your voice mail message to indicate that callers cannot
leave messages in your voice mailbox.
Phantom Mailbox
Phantom Mailbox
37
A phantom mailbox is a voice mailbox that does not have an actual
telephone associated with it.
Example:
■
A sales representative who travels constantly for your organization
does not have an actual office but must have a way to receive
telephone messages from customers. The representative can retrieve,
forward, and save messages in the same way that any other employee
can but would not have a physical telephone connected to your NBX
system.
■
An employee lives a long distance from your offices and works from
home. With a phantom mailbox, customers and others can leave
messages in the employee’s phantom mailbox, and the employee can
call in to the NBX system to retrieve messages.
You retrieve messages from a phantom mailbox the same way you
retrieve messages from a personal mailbox. See “Listening to Messages”
earlier in this chapter.
Group Mailbox
A group mailbox is a voice mailbox from which a group of users can
retrieve messages, rather than one user. Your administrator creates group
mailboxes and can explain to you how to retrieve messages in the group
mailbox.
Example:
■
During nonbusiness hours, the system can send incoming telephone
calls for your sales department to a group mailbox. Your administrator
assigns to the appropriate sales people the ability to listen to, forward,
or otherwise handle all messages that are directed to the group
mailbox.
On an NBX Business Telephone, your administrator can assign a Message
Waiting Indicator to an Access button so that you can access group
mailbox. The light next to the button indicates when the group mailbox
has messages in it

■
Ringer Tone
■
Speed Dials
■
Off-Site Notification
■
Do Not Disturb
■
Preventing Unauthorized Use of Your Telephone
■
Class of Service Override
■

one or more notification paths, for example:
■
Your pager number.
■
Your cellular telephone number.
■
Your email.
The system makes up to five attempts to reach you by using either the
pager or the telephone method. You can use the same notification
method or a combination of the two for the five attempts.
The NBX system stops trying to reach you after you listen to your voice
mail messages.
To set up Off-Site Notification:
1 Log in to the NetSet utility.
2 Select NBX Messaging > Off Site Notification.
3 Select Enabled, and select (or clear) Urgent Messages Only.
4 Select a notification method in the first drop down box under Attempt
Method.
5 In the Number/Address field:
a If you select Voice Mail or Pager, enter a telephone number at which
you can be reached, or enter your pager number. Do not use
parentheses, dashes, commas, spaces, or other nonnumeric
characters.
b If you select Email, enter the email address at which you can be
reached.
6 Use the Numeric Page field when you have selected Pager as the
notification method. Enter a series of digits to be displayed on your pager
when you have received a voice mail message, for example, your
telephone extension number. You may use commas for pauses, if needed.
7 From the Interval drop-down list box, select the number of minutes for
the system to wait before it moves to the next attempt.
8 Repeat steps 4 through 7 to set up additional attempts if required.
9 Click Apply, and then click OK.
Do Not Disturb
Important
Considerations
55
When you activate the Telephone Locking feature, the NBX system
sends messages to you only if the notification number (for example, your
pager number) is a toll-free telephone number. See “Telephone Locking”
later in this chapter for details.
If you choose several notification methods, and you do not include an
email address as one of your choices, then you are notified only about the
first voice mail message that you receive. You are not notified about
subsequent voice mail messages until you retrieve your messages, after
which time the system resets itself.
If you choose several notification methods, and one of the methods is an
email address:
a When you receive your first voice mail message, your NBX system
alerts you in the manner you selected.
b When additional voice mail messages are received in your mailbox,
you receive an email message alert for every voice mail message that
you receive. Once you have retrieved your voice mail messages, the
system resets itself, and Off-Site Notification repeats step (a).
Do Not Disturb
With the Do Not Disturb feature, calls coming in to your telephone
immediately follow the call forwarding path that you set in the NetSet
utility. Typically, the call coverage point for a telephone is voice mail, auto
attendant, or another extension.
When your telephone is in Do Not Disturb mode:
■
Your telephone does not ring when it receives an incoming call.
■
You can use the telephone to dial outgoing calls.
■
You can use the telephone to dial internal and external pages.
■
An NBX Business telephone does not broadcast incoming paging
messages over the speaker.
■
If your telephone is part of a call pickup group, no other telephone in
the pickup group can retrieve a call that comes directly in to your
telephone. The incoming call goes immediately to the call coverage
point (voice mail, auto attendant, or other extension).
56
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
■
If your telephone is part of a hunt group, incoming calls to the hunt
group will ring on your telephone. Calls coming in directly to your
telephone (not directed to the hunt group) do not ring on your
telephone. To prevent all calls from ringing, you must enable Do Not
Disturb and also log out of the hunt group.
To enable and disable Do Not Disturb using the feature code:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature button and 446.
3 Hang up.
Your telephone is now in Do Not Disturb mode.
4 To disable Do Not Disturb mode, repeat these steps.
Preventing
Unauthorized Use
of Your Telephone
Telephone Locking
You can prevent others from dialing long-distance or other unauthorized
calls from your telephone with the Telephone Locking feature, which acts
as a toggle feature, or by having your administrator adjust your call
permissions.
To activate the Locking feature, pick up the handset, press Feature
button on your telephone, and then dial 432.
To deactivate this feature, pick up the handset, press Feature button, and
then dial 432 again.
When Telephone Locking is activated, you are able to dial only toll-free
calls, calls to emergency services (such as 911 in the United States), or
calls to telephone numbers that have been programmed in your system
as “internal” calls.
Call Permissions
Your administrator establishes Call Permissions to control the types of
calls that can be dialed from your telephone. The permissions can be
configured to change depending on the time of day. For example, your
administrator can prevent long-distance calls from being dialed from your
telephone after business hours.
To view your call permissions:
1 Log in to the NetSet utility.
2 Select User Information > Call Permissions.
Class of Service Override
Class of Service
Override
57
The Class of Service Override feature allows you to apply the features of
your own NBX telephone temporarily to another NBX telephone on the
same LAN.
Example:
■
You are meeting in a conference room, and the telephone in that
conference room is configured so that long-distance telephone calls
cannot be dialed from it. Using the Class of Service Override feature,
you can apply the features of your telephone temporarily to the
conference room telephone and dial the call.
To activate Class of Service Override from any NBX telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature button and 433.
3 Dial your telephone extension.
4 Dial your voice mailbox password.
5 When you hear the dial tone, you can dial a call in the same manner that
you would from your own NBX telephone.
When you use Class of Service Override, any reports that are generated
on the NBX system indicate that the CoS features of your own NBX
telephone were applied temporarily to the telephone from which you
made the call.
Palm Integration
(NBX 2102-IR Telephone only) — The infrared port on the front edge
of the NBX Model 2102-IR Business Telephone receives infrared signals
from a handheld device running the Palm operating system. This port
allows you to use your handheld device to call numbers in its directory
and to perform standard NBX Business Telephone operations, such as
Forward, Redial, and Transfer.
You must install the Palm Dialer software on your handheld device before
you can use this feature. See your administrator for details.
58
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
Using a Headset
You can use a headset with a microphone with any NBX telephones
These instructions are for a typical headset and amplifier. You may need
to modify some of these instructions for some types of headset or
amplifier equipment.
To use a headset for all calls:
1 Insert the cord for the headset amplifier into the handset cord's
receptacle on the underside of the telephone.
2 Insert the cord for the headset into the headset amplifier.
3 Pick up the handset off the phone and leave it off.
To use either the handset or the headset for each call:
1 Insert the cord for the headset amplifier into the handset cord's
receptacle on the underside of the telephone.
2 Insert both the headset cord and the handset cord into the headset
amplifier.
3 For headset calls: Pick up the handset off the telephone and leave it off.
4 For handset calls: Press the button on the headset amplifier that turns the
headset off, pick up the handset, and speak into it.
When you use a headset, either the headset or the amplifier is plugged
into the handset cord's receptacle on the underside of the telephone.
Although the handset may be plugged into the amplifier, you must
remove the handset from the cradle to use the headset.
Using a Headset
59
Ending Calls When Using a Headset
To end calls when using a headset with an NBX Business Telephone, press
Release button on your telephone.
To end calls when using a headset with an NBX Basic Telephone, press
Feature button and 111.
Certain brands of headsets have a power-saving mode that prevents the
telephone from ringing for one or more calls when both of these
circumstances are true:
1 The headset amplifier buttons for Mute and On are both set to On, and
2 The handset is off the phone for a long time (for instance, overnight).
Because it may take a few minutes for your headset to return from the
power-saving mode to the active mode, when calls first come in, your
telephone may not ring until the headset has returned to active mode.
If you do not plan to use the headset for a long time, 3Com recommends
that you set the mute and headset buttons on the amplifier to Off and
hang up the handset on your telephone. When you are ready to receive
calls again, set up the headset for receiving calls:
1 Pick up the handset on your telephone.
2 Put on the headset.
3 Press the mute and headset buttons on the amplifier to On.

62
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Account (Billing)
Codes
(NBX 100 and SuperStack 3 NBX) The Account Codes feature allows
your administrator to tracks calls associated with an individual client or
account. When you answer your telephone or when you dial a call, you
dial a numeric account code which allows the system to track time spent
on the telephone with a client, perhaps to be associated with a billable
account.
To activate the Account Codes feature, at any time during a call:
1 Press Feature button and 888.
2 Dial the account code that has been assigned by your administrator, and
then press the # key.
Caller ID
Internal and External
Caller ID
Your administrator can set up your NBX system to allow for Internal and
External Caller ID and can configure the system so that you can block
your identity (telephone number) from the person whom you are calling.
This feature shows the extension and name of an internal caller on the
display panel of your NBX telephone.
External Caller ID provides the same information for external incoming
calls but requires your administrator to subscribe to the service from your
local telephone company.
Availability and service charges for external Caller ID may vary in your
area.
Calling Line Identity
Restriction (CLIR)
(NBX 100 and SuperStack 3 NBX) Sometimes you may need to prevent
the NBX system from transmitting your Caller ID information to outside
parties when you dial a call. This feature is called Calling Line Identity
Restriction, or CLIR. You can restrict calls:
■
For all external (outbound) calls that you dial, or
■
For only the next external (outbound) call that you dial.
Your administrator may have configured your system in such a way that
CLIR is always activated, in which case you cannot change the CLIR
settings on your telephone to override this option.
Call Pickup
63
CLIR for All External Calls
To enable CLIR-All for all calls from your telephone:
1 Pick up the handset, press Feature button and 889.
2 Dial the number that you want to call.
The NBX system does not send caller ID information on this call or any
future calls until you disable this feature.
To disable CLIR-All:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature button and 889 again.
CLIR for Next External Call Only
To enable CLIR for the next call from your telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature button and 890.
3 Dial the number that you want to call.
4 When you disconnect the call, the CLIR feature is no longer in effect.
Call Pickup
Use the Call Pickup feature to answer a call that is ringing on another
telephone. This feature is best arranged in advance when you and
another user know that it would be convenient or necessary to answer
calls ringing on that user’s telephone.
You can answer a call that is ringing on another telephone only if you and
that user both are members of the same Call Pickup group or if that user
is a member of a Call Pickup group that allows “nonmember pickup.”
To view the list of Call Pickup groups of which you are a member:
1 Log in to the NetSet utility.
2 Select User Information > Call Pickup.
3 Select the group number that you want to view from the Group List, and
click Details to display the list of members of that group.
64
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
There are two types of Call Pickup:
Directed Call Pickup
■
Directed Call Pickup — Retrieves a call that is ringing on a specific
telephone.
■
Group Call Pickup — Retrieves a call that is ringing on any one of a
group of telephones.
To answer a call that is ringing on another user’s telephone using the
Feature Code:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature button followed by 455 and the user’s extension. The call is

Your administrator can establish informal “call centers” so that incoming
calls can be directed to several phones.
Incoming calls ring to one member of the hunt group. If that member’s
telephone is in use, or if that member does not answer the call, the
system “hunts” for another member of the group until the call is
answered or is forwarded to the group call coverage (call forwarding)
path. For example, if there are no available members of the hunt group,
the call might be forwarded to a group mailbox or to the receptionist.
Figure 9 shows an example of a hunt group configuration.

To view the list of users that belong to a group:
1 Select a group.
2 Click Details.
If you have logged in to a dynamic hunt group and do not answer a call
when it rings on your telephone, the system logs you out.
Calls that come in to your telephone through your extension follow the
coverage path that you have set up. Calls that come in to your telephone
through hunt groups and calling groups follow the coverage path set up
for that group.
Call Park
Use Call Park to place a call in a “holding pattern” and make it available
for others to pick up from any telephone on the system. Use the internal
paging feature, the external paging feature, or both, to announce the call
to all users. The recipient can retrieve the call from any NBX Telephone by
dialing the Call Park extension that you give during your announcement.
This feature is useful:
■
When the recipient is elsewhere in the building.
■
When you want to continue a call on another telephone, and
transferring the call does not give you enough time to retrieve it.
When you park a call, you assign it a Call Park extension, which is also
used to retrieve it. Table 8 lists the factory default Call Park extension
numbers that may be available on your system. Contact your
administrator to verify the Call Park extensions for your location.

If the call is not answered within 3 to 4 minutes after it is parked, it rings
again at the original telephone. Your administrator can modify the length
of this waiting period.
Paging
69
To park a call:
1 While you are on a call, press Feature button and 444, or press the
Access button assigned to Call Park.
2 Use the telephone key pad to dial a Call Park extension from the list
shown in Table 8.
If you select a Call Park extension that is already in use, the display panel
displays Park Cancelled and the call rings back to your telephone. You
can try another Call Park extension.
3 If you want to notify another user about the parked call:
a From an NBX Business Telephone, select an Access button that is
assigned for placing telephone calls, and dial the user’s extension, or
page them. See “Paging” in the next section for details.
b From an NBX Basic Telephone, press the switch hook. When you hear
the dial tone, dial the user’s extension, or page them. See “Paging” in
the next section for details.
To retrieve a parked call:
1 Pick up the handset of any telephone on the system.
2 Dial the Call Park extension assigned to the call.
Paging
In certain circumstances, you can broadcast a message from NBX
telephones using the Paging feature.
The default codes, or extensions, that you dial for paging are shown in
Table 9.

Dialing a Call to a Remote Office
Dialing a Call to a
Remote Office
71
(NBX 100 and SuperStack 3 NBX) The NBX 100 and SuperStack 3 NBX
Networked Telephony Solutions provide options that allow users to dial
calls between sites that are separated geographically but that are linked
by a Wide Area Network (WAN) connection.
Two typical configurations are described in the next sections.
Using Unique
Extensions
In the sample network shown in Figure 11, each site must have unique
telephone extensions. The system is configured so that whenever a call is
made to an extension not located at the local site, your NBX system sets
up a connection to the appropriate site.
In this example, to call a user in Dallas, a user in Chicago dials a Dallas
extension (3000 through 3999). The dial plan on the Chicago NBX system
sets up the necessary connection to the Dallas NBX system and then to
the extension at that site.

Using Site Codes
Your administrator also can configure your telephone system to use site
codes for dialing remote offices. In this scenario, you must dial a site code
first, followed by the extension at the site. Each site then may have
whatever telephone extensions they want. Your administrator chooses
the site codes for your system.
For example, as shown in Figure 12, to call someone in Atlanta, a user in
Chicago dials the site code 62 and then the appropriate extension (1000
through 3999). To reach a user in Dallas, a user in Chicago dials 63 and
then the appropriate extension (1000 through 3999). The site code
72
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
prevents conflicts between the remote extension number and an identical
extension number at the local site (Chicago).

Bridged Extensions
(NBX Business Telephones only) With a bridged extension, buttons
and status lights on one telephone are associated with buttons and status
lights on another telephone, and you can perform the same operations
(such as dialing telephone calls, placing calls on hold, forwarding calls,
and so on) from either telephone.
Example:
■
If an assistant answers a manager’s telephone calls, your administrator
can map the manager’s extension on the assistant’s telephone.The
manager’s telephone is the primary telephone, and the assistant’s
telephone is the secondary telephone. Both telephones must be
NBX Business Telephones.
A primary telephone’s extension can be mapped to one or more
secondary telephones.
Delayed Ringing
Delayed Ringing
73
(NBX Business Telephones only) The Delayed Ringing feature prevents
a telephone on a shared line from ringing on a specific telephone until
the incoming call rings on another telephone a specified number of times
first.
Example:
■
Pulse Dialing
A telephone extension is programmed to appear on a manager’s
telephone and on the assistant’s telephone. When a call comes in to
the manager on that extension, the assistant’s telephone rings a
specified number of times (typically 4 rings) before the call audibly
rings on the manager’s telephone. Although incoming calls initially do
not ring audibly on the manager’s telephone, the line’s status light
flashes, allowing the manager to answer the calls if required.
In some locations, users must dial telephone calls using pulse dialing
instead of tone dialing (also called Dual Tone Multi Frequency, or DTMF,
dialing).
Examples:
■
You must dial certain calls using a telephone company that supports
only pulse dialing.
■
Your organization’s telephone service provider offers low-cost service,
but that provider only has pulse dialing service.
There are three methods you can use to switch to DTMF if you are in
pulse dial mode.
Using a Feature Code
To change from pulse dialing to DTMF during a call:
1 Press Feature button and 891.
2 Your connection is switched from pulse to tone (DTMF) for the remainder
of the call. When you hang up, your phone port reverts to pulse dialing
mode.
Using a Mapped Button
Your administrator can map your telephone so that you can press a single
Access button to change from pulse dialing to DTMF during a call. Ask
your administrator for details.
74
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Using a Personal Speed Dial
You can configure a personal speed dial in the NetSet utility to dial a
number in pulse dial mode and then to switch to DTMF. You can also
include the digits that you want the system to dial after switching to
DTMF. Use the left carat character (<) as the command to switch to DTMF
mode. The system dials any digits after the < in the speed dial digit string
using DTMF tones. When you hang up, your telephone reverts to pulse
dialing mode.
For additional information about programming speed dials, see “Personal
Speed Dials” in Chapter 6.

ATTENDANT CONSOLES
The NBX 1105 Attendant Console and the NBX Complement Attendant
Software (CAS) application enable a receptionist to handle high call
volumes efficiently. Although receptionists primarily use the Attendant
Console and CAS, they can be used by busy sales representatives and
others who receive a high volume of telephone calls or who make
frequent calls to the same telephone numbers.
This chapter covers these features:
■
NBX 1105 Attendant Console
■
Complement Attendant Software
The NBX 1105 Attendant Console is a device that works along with NBX
Telephones to increase call handling. In most offices the Attendant
Console is used by a receptionist or switchboard operator, referred to in
this guide as “the receptionist.”
The NBX Complement Attendant Software is a software application that
allows a receptionist to answer and route calls using a personal computer
(PC). Your administrator installs the Complement Attendant Software on
your computer from the NBX Resource Pack CD.
The Attendant Console and Complement Attendant Software can be
used at the same time. However:
■
When incoming calls appear on the Attendant Console, you must
handle them using the buttons of the console.
■
When calls appear on the computer screen, you must handle them
using the computer mouse and the software features.
76
CHAPTER 8: ATTENDANT CONSOLES
NBX 1105
Attendant Console
The NBX 1105 Attendant Console has 50 Access buttons, each of which
can handle two assignments, for total functionality of 100 buttons. The
buttons support the same functions and have the same behavior as the
12 Access buttons on the NBX Business Telephone. See Figure 13. In
effect, the Attendant Console is an extension of the telephone to which it
is assigned.
The Access buttons on the Attendant Console can have two sets of
assignments: 1 through 50, and 51 through 100. To toggle between the
two sets of assignments, press Shift button on the lower left corner of
the Console.
Your administrator can assign features to each Access button, or the
receptionist can assign features to the buttons using the NetSet utility.
Assigned features might include:
■
Status of internal telephone extensions
■
Availability of external telephone lines
■
Speed dials for:
■
■
User extensions
■

Moving Your Telephone
85
Moving Your
Telephone
All NBX telephones have the Automatic Telephone Relocation feature.
Each telephone has a unique “address.” You can move your telephone to
another location, connect it to any Ethernet jack on the LAN, and still
maintain all of your personalized features, speed dials, and extension
number.
Swapping
Telephones
Because your extension number and personal settings are associated with
your physical telephone, only your administrator can move phone
extension settings from one telephone to another.
Cleaning Your
Telephone
Always unplug your telephone before you clean it. Use a soft cloth
dampened with mild detergent.
WARNING: Failure to unplug the telephone before you clean it could
result in electrical shock.
Troubleshooting
Possible Problems
Table 12 lists possible problems that you may encounter and the most
likely solutions. Where possible, each solution refers to the section in this
guide where you can find detailed information.
Table 12 Troubleshooting Quick Reference
Possible Problem
My telephone has no dial tone and the
display panel is blank.
Suggested Solutions
■
■
■
Verify that the power cord is fully
inserted in the correct connector on
the underside of the telephone. Use
the strain relief tab to prevent the
cord from becoming unplugged (as
shown in Figure 14).
Verify that the Ethernet cables are
connected, and that each cable is in
the proper connection.
Remove and add power to the
telephone by unplugging the power
cord at the electric outlet and
plugging it back in.
