Hi there,

If the system is still under warranty, you can contact Polycom for a warranty repair.

If it is not under warranty, then try a reset:

There should be a reset button somewhere on the unit. Hold it down, and hard cycle the power. Keep holding the reset button down. Keep holding for as long a time as possible, several minutes, to ensure it resets.

Let me know if that works?

Hi Pete,Sorry about the time zone delay. I didn't find any reset button around either the base or the phone. But I did tried restore to default and reboot the phone in the admin menu in the phone. Do you have any other idea about the problem? It is showing "Please wait" we're not sure it's the phone's problem or base's.Attached are the photos of phone and base.The detailed information of this phone:

If the reset or restore didn't work then the phone will require a repair.

Is it still under warranty? If so, you can return it to Polycom for a warranty repair.
