7970 IP phone

Hi all,

This may seem to be a wierd question. We have a user who got upgraded from a 7940 Ip phone to a 7970 IP phone. The new phone is setup from scratch.

The good news is that everything works absolutely fine. However, the user cannot increase the brightness on the phone. I thought that this could possibly be the problem with the phone and I replaced the IP phone whith another 7970 phone. The result sohow seems to be the same. Can anyone please tell me what is going on. Thanks in advance.

Re: 7970 IP phone

Hi Naveen,

This is a very good question! This is likely a PoE issue.

Have a look at the following, which details numerous PoE setups where the IP Phone will only be Half-brightness

Table 2-2 Power Consumption and Display Brightness for Power Configurations

Phone Screen Brightness Approx. 1/2

Hope this helps!
