Unanswered Question
Aug 23rd, 2010

Hi Guys,

Just installed my first call manager with some help from a third party but i have a few issue

We have

7965 handsets upgraded and working 100%

7960 handsets upgraded and working 100%

7961 handsets  non upgraded and non working

I have tried a reset  # hold down till lights start flashing


screen is blank no infomation from 4 handsets

The system has the latest language pack , device pack and UK dail plan installed

Also trying to reset an ata 186

The following procedure will reset the ATA to its default config:

a) Take the phone off hook.
b) The red button on the top of the ATA-186 will illuminate.
c) Press the illuminating red button on the ATA and dial 322873738#. (The numbers spell FACTRESET# on the telephone)
d) Voice prompt will ask you to dial * to save changes you have just made.
e) Press * on your phone's keypad.
f) Hang up the phone.

Step C says invalid Number

I have this problem too.

Hi John,

It's most likely that your 7961 phones are running an older firmware

and your new CUCM-BE build is trying to install 8.5(3) or newer firmware.

The issue turns out to be that the phone firmware needs to be @ 8.5.2 before trying to go to 8.5.3

or later

Download an older Firmware and change your Device defaults for the 7961 to reflect

this "older" Firmware.

Hope this helps!
