As you know I recently moved. This weekend I unpacked my Panasonic 616 and plugged it in. It seems to work fine, powered right up. I connected a 2500 and a cordless phone I use for testing, they both work fine. I connected my Panasonic programming phone, KX-T7030 and I get nothing. I tried connecting it to several ports. It worked fine before we moved for years. No dial tone and the LCD display does not illuminate. Is there an outside power supply needed for it? I do not remember a power supply and I do not see a place to plug one in. Any ideas?

Harry....I thought the Programming Phone only working in the first port. I do not have one, but if I remember correctly  ??? it just works in the first port. I have enclosed a manual for the 616...Doug

How many conductors in the line cord on your proprietary (Panasonic) phone? No, it does not need an external power supply.

I will have to look at both of those things. I think I tried connecting it to the #1 extension but I am not sure. I also need to check the line cord as I just pulled one form my box of cords and did not think about it. I will try these tonight and report back.
Thanks Guys!

PROBLEM SOLVED!
I had a 2 wire line cord on it. I never even thought about how many wires were in the line cord.
Thanks guys ;D

I tried the phone on several ports and it works fine, LCD & calls. When I connect to port 11 I get nothing. No display & no dial tone. I tried switching it to "PROGRAM"  and get the same result. I was told it needs a 6 wire cord for programming, is this correct?

Does a single line phone work in Port 11?
I didn't see a 3-pair cord for the proprietary sets in the manual Doug linked to.

There are only 4 wires in all of the ports on 308/616 PBX including programming port 11. Two pair line cord required for the programming phone: red/green and yellow/black.
