screensaver or image blinking in 7900 series ip phone


i have ccm4.1.3 with cisco 7900 series ip phones. Have a small query, if I can have some sort of messages/ screensaver shown in the display of these ip phones. The message can be a blinking one or screensaver type on the background.

Need help in getting to know incase there are any ways around for doing these.

Thanks in advance,



Re: screensaver or image blinking in 7900 series ip phone

Please follow the new instructions below, step by step, in particular to step 7:

1. Download the SCCP Software Package Zip file.

2. Create the bitmap of the image to load to the phone -The bitmap must be 88x27 pixels in size

-The bitmap must be black and white

-The bitmap must be saved as a image type

3. Convert the bitmap into a logo image using bmp2logo.exe

-bmp2logo x input_file output.logo

where x is an arbitrary number

-example: bmp2logo 10 cisco.bmp cisco.logo

4. Create a text file that will be used to build the ld or gk cfg file

-The file can be any name

-Must contain the upgradelogo key

-The SampleLogo.txt can be used as a template.

NOTE: the image number defined in step 3 must be used in this text file

5. Create the cfg file, use the cfgfmt.exe

-cfgfmt SampleLogo.txt lddefault.cfg

NOTE: if the same image is desired on all 7905's and 7912, use the

lddefault.cfg and

gkdefault.cfg files.

6. Move the .logo file into the TFTPPATH directory

7. Move the lddefault.cfg or gkdefault.cfg) (attached) into the COUNTRY

specific folder.

-The ld or gk cfg files will need to be in at least


NOTE: The cfg file will need to be copied to each COUNTRY directory

supported by the CM.

8. Reboot the 7905 or 7912 for the new image to display
