Go to settings then press **# to unlock the configuration then you can do a factory reset.

Is this connecting to a cisco call manager? Are you using DHCP? If so is Option 150 configured with the correct address for your tftp server?

Hope this helps

Yep, one step ahead of you on that one, I reboot it with the # key pressed (before speaker light comes on) and it continues to boot as normal, no flashing line light as per the instructions.

I have done it in the past with the same type of phone via those instructions and it worked like a dream, but not with this little bugger.

And Cisco won't support it, even though I have a maintaince contract because it has SIP on it and they don't support SIP.  

They just won't let go of the fact that callmanager may have had its day.
