Hello from Russia!

Q: How to reset Cisco Phone 7905 to factory default settings?

Standart Passwords, such as "12345" and "cisco" don't work.

Phone configured for use static IP-adress and TFTP-server settings is disable.

I have this problem too.

Hi! Default password is 1234, try it first.

If it doesn't help then try to reset:

1. Press **2. And then press the Yes softkey.


2. Press **#. Enter admin password, if asked, and then press the Enter softkey. Select Erase Configuration and press the Yes softkey and then press the Save softkey.

if you have access to CCO downloads, you should try the recovery images for the 7902/05/12. In the zipfile there is documentation on how to do that.

hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

No, the 7940/60 (telecaster) reset procedures do not apply to 7902 / 05 / 12 that are based on ATA technology.

I never said that it did apply ; )

We all could do with a bit of reading practice now and then hey...

Again I'm not sure this will do it but the document is platform specific.


"Resetting the Cisco IP Phone

To reset the Cisco IP Phone, enter the following command from your web



where ipaddress is the IP address of the Cisco IP Phone that you are resetting."

Must be a way to do it - just don't give up!
