You must have a modular telephone jack and electrical outlet near
where you’re installing the phone.
The total length of telephone line cord used in this system is
important. If the total length of telephone line cord is more than
600 feet, you may need to use a special filter device. You can call
1 800 PCC–9125 for information about this filter. You’ll need to
contact a professional to install this filter.
Identify the number of phone lines you’ll use.
All connected phones must have the same Line 1 phone number for
Intercom and Paging to work.
Assign a different Intercom Extension Number (11 through 22) to
each 954 telephone. You’ll need to do this individually at each
telephone.
Decide if you want a private line. A private line does not appear on
all connected phones.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If this telephone does not work properly, try the following suggestions. If
you’re still having problems, call 1 800 PCC–9125.
No Dial Tone
•
•
Make sure all plugs are connected properly. Inspect the line cord
connections at the modular jack and at the telephone. Also inspect the
coiled handset cord connection at both ends.
Check to make sure the phone is not on hold.
Call Cannot Be Dialed or is Dialed Slowly
This product comes set to touch tone mode. If you have dial pulse (rotary)
dialing service, you cannot dial numbers with the phone set to touch tone.
See the TELEPHONE FEATURE SETUP section of this manual to set the dial
mode to PULSE.
Interference on Intercom or Phone Calls
This phone uses sensitive circuitry that may pick up interference in
environments with excessive electrical noise. To minimize interference,
keep electrical noise sources away from telephone wiring and sets.
Telephone Lights Flutter Continuously
•
•
•
•
•
Power may have been interrupted.
If AC power is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the switch is
turned on.
Check the power cords on all system phones, and check the fuse or
circuit breaker that serves the phones.
Check the telephone jack by disconnecting the 954 and connecting
another non-system telephone.
Check that all line assignments are correct, and that all 954 phones are
on the line designated as Line 1.
Difficulty Storing Numbers in Memory

•
Make sure you are pressing the correct sequence of buttons for storing
one-touch and two-touch numbers.
Make sure the telephone is idle while you are storing numbers. If you

Make sure the Do Not Disturb (DND) feature is not activated.
Make sure ringers are turned on.
If there are several non-system phones on the line that doesn’t ring,
disconnect some of them. Having too many phones connected can also
result in low ringer volume for non-system telephones.
If the INTERCOM light flashes but you don’t hear a paging signal, make
sure the Do Not Disturb feature is not activated.

two jacks on different lines.

EXPANDING THE 954 SYSTEM
When you combine two or more 954 phones you create an interacting
system. You can have up to twelve 954 phones and up to eight telephone
lines. The 954 can also be used with Centrex service.
You can use the fourth line on each station as a private line. The diagram
below illustrates each station as having access to three lines. Notice that the
fourth line is not the same on every station (see “Setting Up a Fourth Line for
Each Station” in the CENTREX OPERATION section of this manual). This
diagram also applies to Centrex users.
