Panasonic 616 dropping calls, can't pick up calls on hold

Panasonic 616 dropping calls, can't pick up calls on hold

Panasonic 616 dropping calls, can't pick up calls on hold

(OP)
Heading out on a service call today to work on a Panasonic KXT 616. Customer says certain extensions are dropping calls and also calls placed on hold can't be picked up. Anyone have any ideas on what could be the issue? Could it be a port problem? Thanks in advance!!

RE: Panasonic 616 dropping calls, can't pick up calls on hold

It sounds to me like a hookswitch issue in the phones themselves. Some models of Panasonic phone have regular problems with this. The actually have a dual contact hook switch but only one is used. A small ammount of oxidation build-up will cause the hokkswitch to fail intermittently, resulting id dropped calls and issues getting calls on and off of hold.

pulling a held call!!

I read that to possibly mean that calls are getting dropped when going on and off of hold, which might be a hook switch.
