Hello everybody,
I am an electrical engineering student with an interest in communications and collecting older phone equipment. I learned that the EASA308 would be useful for someone with a collection of rotary and T-T phones and purchased one on ebay.

It works well for the most part (sometimes it doesn't start properly and the power LED flickers) but I also have an issue with making outgoing calls. Dialing 9 to get a CO only results in a stutter tone (With VOIP ATAs connected to the CO ports) (dialing 81 does access CO 1 and 82, 83, etc). I would also like to arrange incoming calls to be routed to different phone sets depending on originating CO.

I figured this was a programming issue so I tried to order a KX-T30830. I could not find one of those so I ordered a KX-T7030. Here is the issue the 7030 I got doesn't seem to work at all.

I am considering ordering another desk set, perhaps a 7730, but I don't want to keep throwing money into a hole.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to why I might be getting a blank screen on my 7730?
I have an electronics test bench and can make measurements and replace components, but I'm not sure where to start, or what to look for.

Best regards, and I hope somebody could help me out with this!

As you have probably seen in the KX-T30810 Manual it does not delve into component level troubleshooting but rather Problem-Cause-Solution meaning if it's not a programming problem then send the unit to the service center.

and the addendum (Mark 3) changes.

The KX-T7030 as well as the KX-T7730 will work with your KX-T30810 system. You will need one at extension 10 to program your system. (Download the manual) Then you can program it so that your single line phones directly pick up a CO line or dial tone. (That dial tone you hear now is intercom dial tone.) If the 7030 doesn't work, well, it's defective. Deal with it as you may but I would want it replaced or my money back. I would send that KSU back too if you have problems with it starting. None of this is worth fixing, you'll never find service information and it's cheap enough to just throw away.
