Move close to the handset’s base and check to see if the problem clears. If it does, the problem may
be with one of the repeaters associated with the base.
Check that the repeaters associated with the base hosting the handset are all functional by logging into
ShoreTel IP930D Manager and navigating to the Manage Bases page. From there, check that all
repeaters associated with the hosting base are active and synchronized. If not, see “Repeater will not
synchronize with its base” (below).
Check that the handset can see all of the base’s repeaters using the site survey mode of the handset.
You may need to move closer to the repeaters to see them all. See Handset Service Menu on page 79.
Insufficient free DECT channels
If there are no free DECT channels available for the handset to connect to a base or repeater, the
phone may enter the “Searching” mode. Check that channel limits for the system have not been
exceeded and, if possible, turn off nearby interfering DECT systems or devices.
