Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If you will be patient for several minutes more, I am researching the problem.

Meanwhile, please tell me:

- Do the phones on this NEC DT3000 still ring at some time (presumably at night) ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need to set it to day at 8am and night at 5pm
The phone is saying NIGHT on it in the screen and all calls are going to voice mail which i can retrieve from there
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.


Is it an office phone with others?

Or is it a phone that is alone on its own line?

And let me confirm that you have a NEC DT3000 phone, not some other type...?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

One of your office's phones is the 'control console'. It has a button on it labeled 'NIGHT', and pressing that button once will turn Off the Night Mode.

If you don't have office phones, but a home phone, let me know.

Let me know, also, if this is the right answer, so that I can stop finding other possible answers. Thanks.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

You ought to be able to tell when Night Mode is On, by looking for a light on the phone that is On next to the Night button. When you press the Night button once, the light should go Off, indicating Night Mode is disabled / turned Off.

Let me know whether that answers your question, please. Thanks.

there are 4 phones here and no "Receptionist" phone with that button, i already read that responce on the internet
this just happened this morning while changing the time.
do you know what buttons to push to access the 8100 and it it to shut off the night mode?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not paying if this is not resolved
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

If you have an NEC SV8100 phone system, I do not know how to reprogram it, beyond that the Night Mode is Program 12-01.

The programming of that phone system would require a phone system administrator password. Your phone system administrator would have that information... or else, your phone system will not be programmable.

Since this information is not likely to prove satisfactory, I understand, but I do not have other instructions to offer, I have Opted Out in favor of another Expert in this category.

Thank you for your patience.
