Subject: Defective Telo devise
In an effort to resolve issues with Telo device purchased directly from Ooma, I was told to buy a new machine to replace my 15-month unit.
Keeping in mind that we acquired the product directly from your company, also bought a Handset along with your premier service.
With more than one issue to deal with in past two weeks, we have been out of service for the two lines, a side from the time spent to solve the subject matter.

Maybe we can see something the support couldn't.

Could you please discribe what your Ooma Telo is doing (or not doing).

When you plug it in, do you see any lights?

How do you normally connect your Ooma, Modem-Ooma-Router or Modem-Router-Ooma?

So when you power the Ooma device the Line 1 & Line 2 Light comes on, and then it doesn’t boot any farther?

If that is the case, the boot loader is not starting or is stuck. Not much/any hope for that symptom.

If the Line 1 & Line 2 Lights are on, then your see other lights, and then the Line 1 & Line 2 Light come on again there may be a small hope. There are some things that can be tried.

Another suggestion:
If you bought your Ooma device with a credit card, sometimes the credit card warrants the purchase for up to two years. It's worth checking out.

Careful with those surge protectors. There should be a "lightning arrester" on any phone line but using one of those power strip surge protector "filters" might just interfere with your DSL signal. A friend of mine told me this morning that his speed was 600K but he was paying for 3Meg. He bypassed the "surge protection" he had been using and now he gets 4Meg.

I have a new Telo and I'm considering whether to buy the extended warranty. After reading this thread I think I might.

Another good idea is to turn off the LEDs and make sure the Telo is in a well ventilated area. Heat is the enemy of any electronic device and it runs much cooler when the LEDs are off. What do you need them all for anyway?
