Hi, your phone either not getting an ip adress with option 150 in dhcp, or is looking for term61.default.loads, make sure you have it on the tftp server together will the associated firmware files.


hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Yes, you need to activate the steps above.

If you are not sure which ip address and TFTP server the phone is using, observe the packets it sends using ethereal or similar tool.

You may have turned it into a brick. I had an engineer power cycle a phone during a factory reset and it acted the same way. I called TAC and they said the flash was probably corrupted since the phone was cycled while the sequence was writing to flash.

I still have to see a cisco phone turned into a brick. All flash corruption have proved to be recoverable.


Just connect phone to a PC with ethereal and observe if it sends DHCP/TFTP requests out. If it does, it can be recovered.
