Re: 7971 phone cant generate test tone

Hi Joe,

I think you might be hitting this bug (note: the bug is assigned but does not have a great work around as of yet);

CSCee44462 Bug Details

Headline Need ability to generate inband test tone on 7941/61/70/71 like 7960

First Found-in Version 8.0(3), 5.0(1)

Status Assigned

Symptoms:

7941/61/70/71 phones cannot generate 1004Hz -15dB test tones the way a 7960 is capable of doing.

Conditions:

Any network where 7941/61/70/71 phones are being used and a test tone is needed to troubleshoot a loss plan or echo problem.

Workaround: Use the test tone on a 7940 or 7960.

Hope this helps!

Rob
