MWI will not light up on 3COM 3102 Business phone

I have 50 3COM 3102 Business phones. 5 of these phone's MWI lights don't light up when a voicemail is present. The MWI lights on these 5 phones do flash on and off when the phone rings, so I know the lights haven't gone bad. I tried deleting a phone from the system and then recreating it, to see if this would fix the problem. It did fix the issue on one occasion. However, I still have 5 phones that I can't get to light up. Any suggestions?

Re: MWI will not light up on 3COM 3102 Business phone

What kind of system ?

Sip mode ?

what version of code ?

How is this set up on the tels ?

MWI is controlled by the NCP if thsi is a whole NBX , or the IPMSG if it is SIP so I would need a little more info to assist .

Sorry about that, I guess the specs would help.



Software Version: R6_0_44

System: NBX V3000

File System: NBXFSV2



This is setup with the telephones using a text document "dial plan".



Do you need me to send you anything else?

No problem !



So you are using NBX voicemail and some of the tels do not lite when a vmail is left ?



On the 3102 , on the bottom of the tel , is a vmail button . We call it the purple ( voicemail ) button as The lite to the right is your vmail lite . This will go on and off when vmails are left for that tel extension . We also can use buttons on the tel we refer to as MWI . Are these the ones that you are talking about ? These are programmed via netset in button mappings for the tel . You would put say a button for ext 1002 on ext 1001 so You could see if they had a voicemail .

The light I am referring to is the light on the very top of the telephone. It is long and narrow (probably about 2 inches long) and blinks on and off when the telephone rings.



This is the light that should be lighting up when a voicemail is left.

I also found something that might be of some help. Under the status of a working phone, I found the following entry in a section called "Actor Data":



State:Idle;Msg:messageWaitingI

ndicator;Port(Id):pDeviceInter

fac



On a phone that is not working, I found the following:



State:Active;Msg:endSession;Po

rt(Id):pDeviceToSession(0);



Notice how the first mentions a message waiting indicator.... Do you think this has anything to do with it?

My mistake on the vmail button . You are correct on a 3102B series tel . I am not sure why this is occurring as I suggest that you open a case with us and let someone get a look at this .

I ended up solving the issue today. I logged into the voicemail interface and clicked on “edit mailbox†. I didn’t notice before, but in the “mailbox preferences†area, the “notification availability†was turned off. When I turned it on, 3 new options appeared for me in the “mailbox options†menu. They are “notification filter†, “notification procedure†, and “notification schedule†. I went into “notification procedure†and configured it to “blind notify†. Once I did this, the light came back on.



Thanks for your help and suggestions.

NBX does not have a voicemail interface . Only a tab in netset to set certain params but I am not sure I know these !



Is this NBX voicemail or another voicemail ?

No sorry. I have an NBX system buy my voicemail is setup on a 3Com VCX V7000 Networked Telephony Solution. I wasn't aware that this existed. Our phone person left the company and the phones were left for me to take care of. I only knew about the NBX system which is what caused the confusion.
