UC320 won't reset?

We have had a UC320 for about a week and

since the weekend it stopped handing out IP addresses to phones and connected computers. We have ruled out spikes, surges and lightning strikes as it wasn't connected to any analog lines and it was on clean power. Unfortunately we discovered today cannot do a system reset on it either - holding the pin in for ten to fifteen secs does little more than tickle the unit. Doing this while powering it on is equally ineffective.

Anybody else had this sort of trouble? Any suggestions about what to do with the unit? We received it on eval from Cisco but our Cisco rep suggested we post our situation here.

This seems to be a truly dead box. We might have to RMA it. I will contact you directly.

Hi Mr. Dirk,

Could you try a little trick to reset the equipment and see if will it solve?

1 - Press the reset button for 10 seconds

2 - Still pressing the reset button unplug the power cord (eletric energy) and plug it again

3 - Continue to press the reset button for more 15 seconds

In two cases it worked for me, i hope it should help in your case.

Thanks,

Regards.

Re: UC320 won't reset?

Hi Audrey

We were advised telephonically not to attempt a system reset until the unit had booted and had been running for around five minutes. Prior to receiving this advice (which we applied without success) we had also tried varying combinations of holding the reset button with and without a simultaneous power cycle. The number of combinations we tried bares testiment to our levels of enthusiasm or perhaps desperation, however none were successful and the little unit obstinately refused to reset. I have no idea how prevalent this type of issue is as I suspect many engineers will only attempt a system reset under extreme and infrequent circumstances.

Hi Dirk,

Before you return the unit, I advise you to contact Cisco Small Business Support Center.  If you cannot login to the device, there may still be a chance to recover your device.  I have performed a couple of these procedures, and have succeeded in restoring the device.  Our Customer Support personnel should be able to assist you in recovering your UC320W.  Do let us know outcome.

Their phone number is: 1-866-606-1866.  The following link contains all contact numbers.

Hi Julio

The unit has shipped. But I don't think that there are too many ways to push the reset button. I think we have pretty much tried them all.

Hi Mr.Dirk,

Lets agree with Navin, this must be something wrong with your box and the best way is to RMA it.

Thanks,

I went on the UC320 Course at Cisco London, and we had to hold the reset for around 20 seconds before you hear a click inside the box.

If you press the reset for 6 seconds the box resets, power lamp blinks.

After 20 Seconds Factory Defaults.

Hi Paul,

After 20 Seconds Factory Defaults.

You are dead right, I did a firmware upgrade on it and I thought I bricked the thing, and I had a rough time trying to reset it to factory, but I held the Reset button down for 15 seconds, powered it down whilst still holding the reset key, counted to 10 and then powered it back up, and still holding the reset key I waited for the clicking noise (About 30 seconds) and it come back to life again

Cheers,

David.
