Hi.

The calls are being placed on waiting, try using Flash button before using Talk.


Test the chance on a different phone line , the most likely is that the phone is defective.

If the phone is working on a different line, then it is a configuration problem, and the phone is waiting for a manual call transfer from a different phone in your network.


Try using Flash button instead of Talk, this will answer the call if there is a waiting service programmed.

Try testing with no other phone connected.

Finally try resetting the phone, use procedure below:

  • 1. Make sure the phone power is ON (but not in the “talk” mode by pressing the PWR button.
  • 2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll through the main menu until Handset setup is flashing.
  • 3. Press the SELECT button. A second menu shows on the display.
  • 4. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to Reset phone.
  • 5. Press SELECT.
  • 6. Use the arrow buttons to change NO to YES.
  • 7. Press SELECT to confirm.


If after resetting the calls are still being placed on hold, then again, the phone may be faulty.

Here a manual for your phone.

    Ouch!




    I am sorry to see I got a negative rating. I thought I gave a competent answer, even spending time to find manual and procedure for this particular model.




    That hurts.




    Goodbye.

Hello, dont get upset first..
According to the manual, please have a check on the beep tone..
If it has 3 beeps after you push TALK button, it means the handset is out of the range. This problem may due to the location between handset and the base are too far. Or, it may due to the base is not powered. If the latter persists, please check the power cord and change it with a brand new cable when needed..
If it has 4 beeps, then the battery may need any replacement. So far, in my experience the battery could last till 5 years with normal usage.
Hope it works.. :)

ID fading unable to see number or letters, can this problem be solved?


Try putting new batteries in the handset. Many phones will dim their displays when the batteries start to run low in order to save power.

Hope that helps!

Calc north not working


Are you running this scope off of the internal batteries? If you are put in fresh batteries. The hand controller will go wacko once the batteries fall below about 60% charge. We always recommend that goto scopes be run from a separate 12 volt power pack. If new batteries to not solve the problem, return the scope to the dealer while it is still under warranty.

My fresh food on the top shelf is frosting up. i had a problem when i had to turn the freezer down this winter. now in the fresh food section. top shelf the food is starting to kinda freeze. once there was...


Gee I don't know what brand you have so I gotta shoot from the hip. As you know the freezer is where the cold air for the fresh food compartment originates. What you have is some sort of control problem. I suspect it is a sensor. These sensors change in resistance as the temperature changes. A lot of folk waste money buying new controls when all they needed to do was replace the sensors. I have a few manuals in my stash that are for bottom mounts and a french door manual. You may want to look through these to get an idea where these sensors are located.

My phone wont hold a charge


Battery is done. Won't hold charge. Get a new battery at Fry's or elsewhere if your phone isn't ancient and you love it. Try to find a lithium-ion. I used to buy replacement batteries from Belkin on my older phones and they were quite good. If your phone is ancient, can't find battery or phone is just outdated get a new phone from your carrier. From free with new contract all the way to a few-hundred dollars for a smart phone. You may even have an upgrade discount waiting with your carrier. You'll find something in between that suits you.
