Re: CP-7961 GETTING TFTP TIME OUT ERROR

Hi,

Try and do a factory reset on the phone.

steps below:

1)Unplug the cable from the phone

2)Hold the # key and replug the cable back

3)Do not release the # key and hold it for about 10-15 seconds

4)Wait until the lines start flashing

5)As soon as the lines flash, release the # key and dial the following digits using the phone keypad (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,*,0,# in the order. You have 10 seconds to dial all digits. If you fail to dial within 10 seconds, you may need to start over.

This a factory reset and it does the magic. The phone releases the old firmware and downloads the new one.

The upgrade procedure may take up to 5-7 minutes for each phone.
