Accessing Test Mode

Axia intercom stations have a test mode that tests the displays and buttons and provides an option to adjust the brightness.

With power applied, press and hold the ID button on the rear of the unit for 10 seconds.

When in test mode, the four status LEDs (NET, SYNC, Livewire, Master) will scroll in sequence.

OLED displays will show TEST along with their corresponding display number.

Pressing a button will illuminate the LED associated with the button.

Pressing the microphone button will light up the button LED as well as the OLED.

Pressing a numerical button will light up the Line Active LED and display the number of the button being pushed.

Pressing a button on filmcap models will engage the LED for the button. Each additional press will change the color of the light.

Rotating the encoders on OLED models will display numerical values on the OLED. For filmcap models, the buttons should be illuminated and rotating the knob will change the brightness of the buttons.

To exit test mode, press the ID button once on the rear panel.
