I'm taking them apart while I wait for the cabinet arrive to look for any obvious ragged edges and to clean out dead bugs, spider webs etc. That's all.

I am aware of this, my KX-TVA50 is flash memory based attached to my KX-TA824. The KX-TVS200 I had prior had a hard drive.

I couldn't understand why the unit seemed so light in weight of it had a HDD. There was also a nice spider web spun over the the card which the flash memory plugs into also.

I suppose spider might have tried to assimilate-with the flash drive? assimilation

Unfortunately Flash Memory over time has a whole set of its own problems different, yet similar to an aging HDD..... sigh

I have Partner messaging systems out there over 20 years old with hard drives running 24/7 and still going strong. Then I had many brand new that died after three months. Go figure.

Searching for a 355A or AF adapter seems to be the same as searching for a Bacon Stretcher or a Left Handed Smoke Shifter wink

What I really need then is a DB25 to RJ45 kit and connect the pins to correspond.....?

Modular Adapter, DB25 Male to RJ45

..and wire it as in this diagram.

I checked #730 and there is a password programmed which is shown on the phone display.

It's not that difficult, just put 355af in a search engine. However, here's a thought DB9


There's no place like 127.0.0.1

What you can get off the shelf is a Cisco console cable - this has a 9-pin serial connector on one end to go into your computer, and an 8P8C modular plug to go into the console port on a Cisco switch. Now you can make a simple adapter by cutting a 568-B patch cable in half, and punching the wires down on a 568-B keystone jack. Patch cable goes into the Admin jack on the Partner, Cisco cable goes into the Keystone, and into your computer

I thought flash memory was the best thing since sliced bread, as it has no moving parts like a HDD. I then found that it can also fail prematurely.

About 8 years of what I consider light use in (now 10 years old) my KX-TVA50 VMS started occasionally dropping voice prompts. Without warning crashing and rebooting when you dial into one of the Port's extensions, changes to software settings don't always update etc. Restoring the software has not fixed the problems, nor did the last software revision. I spoke with someone and was told, yes, the flash memory in these do fail.

I then read up on how flash memory works which is actually an Eprom on a much larger scale.

That there is only so many times each bit can change from one state to the other. After many many "flips" slight enough that it's state can no longer be read as either on or off.

Carl Navarro.... Now that is a name I haven't seen since I purchased an replacement HDD w/version 4.56 (I think) for a TVS200 many years ago. Though it was kind of slow, I wished that I had held onto it.

Before when I searched for 355A and 355AF adapter I found many unrelated items. When I just did the search again, I found several for the right item. Maybe it's al in my imagination...

Thank You!

I just found this video on how to make an RJ45 to DB9 adapter which makes more sense as my Panasonic Toughbook has a DB9 Serial port.
