I have taken the batteries out a few times, but no fix.
I would love to restore the phone to factory settings, but will need to navigate the menu system blind. Can someone please provide the steps necessary to perform a factory reset?
A reset of the HD2 handset is accomplished by pressing and holding the Off (Red Phone) Button until the HD2 handset screan goes blank. Then release the button.
If that doen't help, go into Ooma Setup>DECT Setting page, and towards the bottom of the page, you can un-register the HD2 handset. There is a bug in the Ooma Setup DECT setting page, where when you un-register the HD2 handset, the have to click the remove button a second time to clear the test from the Slot the HD2 handset was registered to. Then re-register the HD2 handset and see if that halps.

Didn't expect this to be a problem of all things.
I'm not sure what you meant here but clearly the upgrade isn't working properly if we get a blank home screen.Tom B wrote:HD2 with a new LCD chip are starting to hit shelves prior to the release supporting this chip being fully rolled out. Your unit has now been upgraded.
I had the same problem and did what Tbird suggested. Call was answered quickly, they understood the issue and somehow pushed the new firmware to the HD2. Quick and simple (oh, and the phone works!).thunderbird wrote:For anyone having this problem, contact Ooma Customer Support to get upgraded firmware:

I've read some bad stuff about phone support on this forum, but this is the first time I've had to make a call, and it was smooth and easy.
