My Lucent 854 Phones Won't Communicate!

Since my telco (Embarq) did some upgrades at their CO, my Lucent 854 phones aren't communicating ''line busy'' signals correctly. Pages work fine. If you pick up line 1 on your phone you can see which lines the other phones are using, but most of the time you can just pick up over the top of another person.

Is it possible that the telco upgrades changed the way my lines work so they are no longer compatible with my Lucent 854 phones? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Try the "DND" button. It's the furthest to the right in the top row of buttons.

SOURCE: callers get busy signal, all 3 phones say

Possible causes:
1. Another phone is off-hook besides these 3.
2. Bad house wiring - call the phone company.
3. Bad wiring somewhere between your house and the Central Office - call the phone company.

I have a 854 AT&T 4 LINE PHONE SYSTEM IT WORKED GREAT UNTIL I changed providers i switched fro Verizon to Comcast now when I pick up or answer a call the lights appear only on that phone the other...


If the Comcast people changed the equipment in the phone room they probably ran direct lines to each phone or put filters in the lines. The reason you're not seeing the lines light up is the phones are not wired correctly now. The cable box that all of your lines are coming from must have a 1 to multiple line adaptor for each line. The adaptor feeds all of the phones. Communication for the intercom and the line in use lights goes down the phone lines so ther has to be a direct connection between all of the phones. If there are filters in the lines they must be put between the cable box and the line splitter. You can get the line splitters at Radio Shack (Model 279-435 for 1 to 3 adaptor).

Phone connection for Lucent 854


You can get a splitter for it which will then divide that one phone jack into 3 out or 4 out which ever you need. the only problem that you might run into is how close the phones might be to each other. Otherwise there isn't much other ways around it with only one phone jack.
