Call Pilot 100 "Inactive Feature"

Call Pilot 100 "Inactive Feature"

I would have added to older posts, but threads were closed... So here are the specifics:

Call Pilot 100 recently went down. Arrived onsite to troubleshoot, Feature 985(and all VM codes) stating "Inactive Feature". I check under Maintenance, and see that the ports(PO131, and PO132) are recognized as stlk1... I replace power supply with new Nortel 8V, 2-prong model, per suggestions on here. Unit seems to power up, but still "Inactive Feature". I do F**XFTEST, and all features are listed as inactive. Do I remove all these features, and reboot the CallPilot 100? Will this sync with system? KSU is a MICS running 7.1 software. Any help greatly appreciated. I currently have the older 9V power supply(re-furb) being shipped to try and replace with that. Am I better to just replace entire voicemail and start over? Does the newer 8V work properly on the older call Pilots?
Thanks for any suggestions.

RE: Call Pilot 100 "Inactive Feature"

The 8 volt (works on all CP's) replaces the 9 volt so dont go with another 9 volt unless for testing only.

Remove the codes then turn CP on, wait 10 minutes for boot up.

Hooking up a laptop with hyper terminal then boot CP helps tell a story too.

@ Curly...

I am beginning to think the CP100 is fried... I removed all the Feature 900 codes(**XFTEST, indicated as "inactive"), installed the new 8V power supply, hooked up a laptop to the CP and monitored the process... According to Hyperterminal, the CP boots up, goes through all the tests, and gives me a **** READY **** indication at the end. But that is as far as I can get. I wait the 10-15 minute period, and check Feature 985, "inactive". I go to Feature **XFTEST, and it says No Codes... Am I missing something? The CP just keeps rebooting after 120 seconds. I've got a CP150 on it's way, with new software and 40 MB's, just in case. Any info would be helpful, if not to save this CP100, for future reference...

Thanks, again.  

RE: Call Pilot 100 "Inactive Feature"

From what the CP is doing, it sounds like it's not connecting with the KSU -- the 120-second reboot cycle is what they do when they can't see a KSU. If a new power adapter doesn't fix it, I think you're right about the CP being fried.

RE: Call Pilot 100 "Inactive Feature"

Also if I recall when the IP address is changed on the Network so the CP cant get on the Network using the old IP address it has programmed , you would unplug the network patch cord in this case and/or change the IP address if need.
