What is the error message?

Ask Your Own Phone Systems Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I put in the password ***** it tells me error. I tried the default password ***** 777777 or 777 and I still get an error message. I am locked out of the system. I need to get in to program some new phone #s. The intercom is a Linear series TEC 1
Electronics Technician: Josh, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

777777 (7 six times) is the default password.

Did you buy the TEC-1 used?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, but it is really old
Electronics Technician: Josh, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

Did you press * then 777777 then *?

Ask Your Own Phone Systems Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
With this unit you press # not *. If I put the # first I immediately get an error message
Electronics Technician: Josh, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

According to the user guide for the TEC1 series, you will press the * first.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have the user guide. We have a building down the street and that uses the *. We have been using # for 15 years.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
At thus building
Electronics Technician: Josh, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

Electronics Technician: Josh, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately, the user guide says to use the * key to program so if you are saying that you need to use the # key instead then I am out of ideas on this issue.
