KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

(OP)
I have no idea how old this one is, just saw it for firstr time yesterday.
The customer can no longer transfer from a SLT by using flash. The flash does put the line on hold and returns system DT to the handset after 2 short beeps, but as soon as digits are dialed the call is dropped.
I tried changing the flash timer, that didn't help.
Any ideas? I don't think its a programming thing , I think the system is developing alzheimers !
thanx

Reboot system  may help

RE: KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

Yes, I thought of that& it might help, but it might also send all programs back to default. I wouldn't imagine the battery has anything left in it. I would have to check & record every program for status first. And then I'd give it less than a 50/50 chance of working.
I'll run the idea past the owner.
thanks

cwc3, yes, I know. and thats always an unwelcomed surprise!!

RE: KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

RE: KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

Yep, old KXT-616 Easaphone. Not much program options, a few dead extension ports, prolly no RAM battery left. Installed layed on floor under a paper shredder trash can. Wires under a pile of magazines, poorly spliced to a 25 pair IW that goes to who knows where.
Its in a little $20 per nite mom & pop motel that you wouldn,t stay in unless they paid you $100 per nite.
They can't afford to upgrade to a $1,000 used system, but they want an auto attendant so they don't have to answer every call.

RE: KX-TA 616 Easaphone, nearly fossilized!

Hehe. HE. HAHA. HAHAHA! He he.
Auto Attendant? HEHEE. AHHHHAAAAHAHAHA! HOHO HEHE! Hehe.

P.S. Cheap ba$tards. Do the rooms rent by the hour?
