Background image in 7912 with CME

Some one could give a hand telling me how to upload the .bmp image converted to .logo with bmp2logo.exe application in a CME v4.0.3 for a 7912 IP Phone?? I mean, how to display it in the IP Phone.

Thanks in advise for your help.


Re: Background image in 7912 with CME

Below is a step by step procedure on how to change the logo on a 7912 IP phone

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 monochrome 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

Apparently you need to copy the gkdefault.cfg and xxx.logo file into

flash and then enter the following config CLI:

tftp-server flash:gkdefault.cfg

tftp-server flash:xxx.logo

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

If you are using LOCALES for example:

If "user-locale PT" is configured for Portugal support, files should be

created under Portugal/ directory.

You may look at "show telephony-service tftp-binding" to see the files

in different diretories



Re: Background image in 7912 with CME

Thanks gogasca for ypur help, but I have another cuestion, how do I execute step 7 and 8 in a CME 4.0.3?? I understand and already made step 1 to 6, but in CME how do I execute step 7 and 8??

Thanks for your time.


Re: Background image in 7912 with CME

Just move those files to flash:

Use an external TFTP to do so.

copy tftp flash: commands will help

Re: Background image in 7912 with CME

Perfect gogasca, let me try it and I?ll tell the results.

Re: Background image in 7912 with CME

gogasca, i follow all of your indications but I?m not success, could you please explain me about the comand "show telephony-service tftp-binding" do i have to see there the gkdefault.cfg and xxx.logo files?? I already copy the files to flash: and put the commands:

tftp-server flash:gkdefault.cfg

tftp-server flash:xxx.logo

Could you give me your opinion, what I?m doing wrong??
