Troubleshooting Your Cordless Panasonic

Panasonic has been around for nearly 100 years. They’ve manufactured every type of electronics from radio equipment to home theaters. We’re going to be concentrating on the cordless Panasonic line in this article with a couple of helpful tips on troubleshooting and preventive maintenance.

Too many times we tend to throw away out cordless Panasonic phones because we’ve had them for years and they have just stopped working. Most of the time the simplest answer, it would seem, is to just go buy a new one. This isn’t always true though. The batteries that come bundled up inside of your cordless Panasonic phone are specific to that phone, however you can order replacements. This is nice when you think about saving $60 -$300 on the cost of a new phone and you get to claim to be green as well. Why? Because you’re not filling up landfills with phones that just needed a new battery.

Another common problem people run into with their old phones has to do with the cabling. Yes, it’s a cordless phone, but the base still needs to plug into the wall. Often that little cable from the base of your phone system to the wall can get kinked or otherwise damaged. Replace the cord. It’s a standard Rg45 plug-in. In other words, any phone cable with work.

The next component that will likely give out is the power converter. These guys get pretty hot fairly easily and will burn out after awhile. If you are wondering what I am talking about, check out your telephone base. The power cord will most likely run through a nice black box before continuing on into the wall. That is what I am talking about. When these things go your base will no longer work, thus your phone will be dead as Caesar’s ghost. You can actually buy a replacement online or at the local electronics store. Just make sure you match the output and plug type. If you don’t have any experience with this sort of thing, take it with you and compare it to what’s on the shelf and avoid universal sets. They are usually more expensive and lend themselves to harming your electronics if you are unfamiliar with voltage and amps.

For signal loss cordless Panasonic bases can be added to certain brands of signal repeaters. By signal loss I mean, let’s say you can stand at the curb and hear everything fine, however your phone doesn’t seem to want to work in the basement. A signal repeater more or less extends the signal from your phone to your base by acting as a relay. These can be a little hard to install, and not over common to find. Another answer would be to just simply buy another phone and plug it into the area you’re having trouble with. That is to say if you can’t get good signal in your basement, put a cordless phone down there as well.

Cleaning your phone base is important too. Dust is the number two killer of electronics, second only to three year olds with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Just dusting your base could add some life to it. Dust will insulate and lock in heat, heat is bad. Cool is good. So be cool and keep your electronics cool.

Also keep your electronics dry. Even having that cordless Panasonic base on your porch is a bad idea maybe- at least for any length of time. Moisture will set in and corrosion will take place, and I have no tips on have to get rid of it. With a little care and some heads up maintenance your cordless Panasonic phone could possible double in life expectancy. This not only saves a bit on the old pocket book and helps the environment, but is nice for those of us who can never find the “flash” button on other people’s phones.

Business Phone System: How to Choose the Right Platform for You

The following are the three main types of business phone systems, as well as some helpful guidelines to follow when selecting a platform for your business.

Types of Business Phone Systems

1. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP): This phone platform needs the Internet in order to operate. It works well for a smaller business where only several voicemail systems and phone lines are used. To have high quality phone calls with little disturbances, you’ll need a sufficient amount of bandwidth.

2. Private Branch Exchange (PBX): This system could deliver the needs of most medium and big business companies. One of the main features of a PBX system is the switching equipment, that allows you to route phone calls to outside lines and to different employees. This platform could help with organisation and is great if your business has more than one department.

Because PBX systems include an auto-attendant feature, it could minimise many complications and connect callers to the right parties conveniently.

3. Virtual PBX: This third option could be layered on top on an existing VoIP system or landlines. It doesn’t need a permanent office installation. Other common feature of the virtual PBX include voicemail, a toll-free number, call forwarding, and basic auto-attendant.

Business Phone System Installation & Training

Once you’ve determined which type of business phone system is perfect for your business, there are some important considerations when selecting a specific vendor. Some vendors take care of the process of installation, while others just leave it up to you. When making a decision, it is important to get a good understanding of their set-up policies. Also, many systems require training, so choose a vendor that could accommodate both you and your employees. These points are especially important with systems that are a bit complicated, like PBX.

Importance of Good Business Technical Support

Select a vendor that offers assistance when an inevitable problem occurs. Whether you experience some sort of failure or have a question about a certain feature, you want to have a fast access to a reliable, knowledgeable staff support. It’s also better to choose a vendor that offers an emergency service agreement, where you pay a small fee to get fast repairs at any time. A good emergency service agreement must include 24/7 assistance which covers holidays and weekends.

Upgrading Your Phone System

Business phone systems need periodic upgrade, just like other technologies. This makes it practical to choose a vendor that is able to handle hardware and software updates. Upgrades could be performed remotely or manually, and will optimise the performance of your system and could eliminate the need to continually invest in a new business phone system.
