How to Restart the Polycom VVX 410

April 14, 2017 by Steve Lopian

For those of us who work forty-plus hours a week, we tend to fall into work routines. For some of us, those routines start as soon as we get to the office. Maybe it’s checking your emails, or maybe it’s grabbing a cup of coffee before settling into our workspace.

But if your job has you on the phone when you first show up to work, then your routine could be returning voicemails, making outcalls or even immediately taking incoming calls to get a jump start on your day.

Whatever the case may be, if using your phone is ingrained in your routine, then you are going to notice a difference if it’s not working properly! Right?

So what happens if you find yourself in a situation where your phone is not working properly? Most people would be referred to the IT department, and we all know the bud of almost every IT joke is “Did you try turning it off and on again?” But if your phone is malfunctioning, unplugging and plugging it back in won’t always do the trick, so I thought writing this How-To blog on how to restart your phone might come in handy!

How to Restart the Polycom VVX 410

VVX410As an example, we will use the Polycom VVX 410. Restarting this phone is actually quite simple and could help restore your phone’s proper functionality. All you have to do is:

  1. Select Settings from the Home view
  2. Select Basic followed by Restart Phone
  3. The message Are you sure? will display
  4.  If you are sure about restarting your phone then press Yes

That’s it! After this, the restart process will begin and once it is finished, your phone will return to the default Home screen display. If you are still having issues with your phone after restarting it, then at least you can tell your IT guy “I didn’t just turn it off and on again….I RESTARTED IT!”

Do you have a Polycom VVX410 on your desk? Have you tried this trick when your phone wasn’t operating correctly? Let us know! We want to know!
