Thank you, I been through this sequence and no joy.
Still won't unlock. Tried the default cisco password also
I do the following sequence
press * 6 settings all together, then hold the #
Headseat Mute Speaker slowly and sequentially light, in which I enter
Phone displays person name "Tim Weber" and ethernet disconnected. I cannot get pass this and all settings are grayed on on the menu.
At one point do you press the # and enter the 123.. sequence. No matter what variation I use it goes into the normal boot. My lights headset go green for about 30 second then the mute goes red for thirty seconds the speaker quickly flashes then the phone starts booting it's locked config.
Reset (power-cycle) your phone (you can do it by pressing " * + 6 + Settings " at the same time), and hold the pound ( # ) key. The phone's display will show you a text "Reset key sequence detected" and the Headset, Mute and Speaker leds will blink in cycle. Now just press the following keys: " 1 2 3
4 5 6 7 8 9 * 0 # ". Now the phone will ask you if you want to save your network configuration. If you have a DHCP enabled network then you can safely press the key "2 - No". And that's all. You phone will boot up with its factory defaults configuration.
I have several links to reset a SIP 7960 phone back to reset, and have tried the reset sequence several times and varied the timings, but these phones will not accept the reset sequence, would something else be preventing the phones from accepting the reset sequence such as firmware?
Yes, I tried both cisco and cisco123 from the menu and get invalid password. This is on the unlock config menu.
I have reset both SIP and SCCP phones before, I don't recall it being this sensitive to a factory reset sequence entry and timing. I followed to a T the Cisco instructions on resetting sccp and sip 7900 series phones and googled other links and get the same instructions.
The headset speaker mute lights do no do the normal flashing they intitiall all quickly flash together, then the green speaker comes on for about a long
30 seconds, then the red mute comes on for a long 30 seconds, then the yellow speaker quickly flashes and starts to boot. I never get the Keep network cfg? 1 = yes 2 = no prompt and the screen is blank while the before mentions light sequence is taking place. Again after I repower the phone either by pulling the cord or doing the * 6 setting sequence which immediately works, I hold the # key, get the three light together quickly flash then the green light come on in which at this time I am entering the
123456789*0# sequence and see the blank display.
Have you tried cisco123 as the password to unlock the config (not talking about the reset sequence)? Its the default that I know of.
And any chance a key is broken or not being recognized? All the things I'm finding say the sequence is what you are doing, so I'm wondering if this is a simple problem. Are you having the issue with other 7960s, or just one?
I bought two phones both with the same network settings, both do not accept the reset. I power off held down the # and the screen goes blank, light flash in a slow sequence and it goes into boot even if I never let up on the # key.
with the Cisco marquee configurng vlan requesting configuration Your current option http connection closed
if I press setting it is locked, and grayed out but able to see all IP info is statically assigned.
The Firmware Versions
Application Load ID POM3-04-4-00
Boot Load PC03A300
The ebay selling says he will take them back and refund, but he says he never run into this problem with the phones he sold in the past for both sip and skinny. I am trying some google searching as well and searching Cisco from my cco account and not turning up anything but the standard SIP 7900 phone reset sequence.
They don't look like they were asterik rejects, they have all the MGCP gateway statically assigned and a bunch of other settings set.
When you hold the # key, does it prompt you with: "Reset key sequence detected"? I'm doing some googling as well, this looks like a tough one.
