Device doesn't respond to input
Pressing buttons does nothing
There may be dust or other particles preventing the buttons from making the circuit they need to provide input. Use the Nortel Networks i2004 IP Buttons Guide to get to the buttons and clean the dust out from the buttons.
Check to make sure that the buttons are not simply misaligned. If they are, attempt to jiggle them back into place. If this does not appear to work, the buttons may be broken. Refer to this guide for help with replacing the Nortel Networks i2004 IP Buttons Guide.
Broken Circut Board
If your phone still doesn't respond to input after clearing the contacts, the circuit board may be broken. Follow the Nortel Networks i2004 IP Circuit Board Guide and put the new circuit in instead of the old one.
