6961 display light timer UC540

Is there a way to configure the timer for the light of the display of a 6961?

I'm using a UC540, with version 8.6.0, the phone firmware load is SCCP 9.1.1.2.sr (which is the one that comes with the 8.6.0 pack).

On the SPA500's there is a config option to set the timer to 10, 20, 30 seconds, or allways on/off. Ont e 6961, there is only a contrast option for the display; no options for timer.

I couldn't find any hints on the users guide of the phone.

Also, I applied th Mexican Spanish locale pack, and only o few of the menus diaply in spanich. The rest is in English.

Thanks for the help!

Pedro.

Not all the phones have the same setting or features.

Same as for language translation, you can only ask and hope that Cisco fixes it some day.

Here's the solution to modifying the backlight parameters:


Router(config-telephony)# service phone daysBacklightNotActive 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Router(config-telephony)# service phone backlightOnTime 07:30

Router(config-telephony)# service phone backlightOnDuration 10:00

Router(config-telephony)# service phone backlightIdleTimeout 00.01


These will configure the phones for a 1 minute timeout when idle. It seems that the rest of the parameters are superseeded by the last one, but need to have values anyway.

Following are some more links that further documento the issue.
