1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

Ok guys here we go.... I have a 1232 with a DISA card that answers all the incoming calls. I have turned on BSS for the main extension however the tone does not go through. I am assuming it is because the DISA is being treated as an extension passing the caller from itself to the main extension which would require the BSS or "1" to be pushed.

So I am on the main phone on a line actively in a conversation  and a second caller comes in. They are in the DISA and hit 0 for the operator (main extension). It comes to that extension and the green light blinks but no call waiting tone.

I am a bit rusty with my Panasonic but am familiar with it. Can someone confirm that I can not do this or tell me how I possible could.

Thanks in advance. I will confirm the repair here if someone  gives me a solution.

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

try 7311#

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

Sorry for this....still rusty. I am assuming 7311# is done on the main set?

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

it is just intercom 7311 sorry

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

OK I will try and let you know......

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

Oh wait I tried that....same result. Just realized what you instructed me to do. The programming reflected the change BSS for that extension as well.

As I mentioned I think the system thinks an extension is transfering / calling so it looks for the "1" to be pushed.

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

get rid of bss if the disa blind transfers a
call to that ext you should get the muted ringing
if you do the 7311

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

could also be 7312

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

cwc3 I tried 7312 same result. However, am I not setting BSS when I program 7311 on the set? Is that not doing the exact same thing as if I went into the programming and selected the main extension to enable call waiting using BSS.

Perhaps your other comment is the issue. How could I tell if a DISA is blind transfering or not? I am not sure if that is an option to set or not. The call is coming "muted" to the main extension as you stated.

So if I set no BSS in the programming and then manually at the set program 7311 will that give different results?

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

what are you using disa for auto attendant or is it a ucd application?

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

It's set up for a AA use. Set to answer after first ring. It's a Motel application.

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

busy station signalling is not call waiting .
I have a tvs 75 set dil 1:1  on my 816 office system and all I did to get muted ringing on a transfered or incoming call while I am on the phone is I hit 7312

easy way to tell if you are doing a blind transfer
(I never have used the disa card if you can believe that)
 you dial in thru disa you press key in an ext  and you watch that line on the dpt and see if it flashes during the transfer if so then it screened
if it lights solid red then its a blind transfer

if you find that it is screened a common audible attendant bell may be required if you or the customer will not spring for the tvs

RE: 1232 w/ DISA and Call Waiting

Ok it's a blind then I beleive. I thought back to it and it's transfering blind. I will try agian the 7312 and see what happens. Thanks for the help. I will let you know what happens.
