Try using a different web browser and if that didn't work then it must be a corrupted version of firmware, I would suggest that you reinstall or upgrade the firmware.

give that a test.

Then it must be a hardware issue... could be the memory/harddisk is damaged.

How are you providing power to the phones ? I think those phones don't come with power supply. they have POE port available.

Making the Web Configuration Utility Viewable and Writable

To view the phone parameters by using the phone web user interface, the
configuration profile must be enabled. To make changes to any of the parameters

phone web user interface viewable or writable.
To allow or disallow viewing of the phone web user interface:
STEP 1 Press the Setup button.
STEP 2 To display the phone web user interface on the PC, select Settings > Security
Configuration > Web Access Enabled.
STEP 3 To change the status of the Web Access Enabled parameter, press Edit.
If the option to edit the parameter is not displayed, press **# to display the option.
If the edit option still does not display, it might be set by your phone system
administrator such that you cannot modify this parameter.
STEP 4 Press Y/N to toggle the parameter and press OK to set the parameter.
STEP 5 To save your change, press Save.
To enable or disable modifying the configuration profile by using the phone web
user interface:

the problem was due to the SPCP protocol that is loaded by default, to solve the problem you have to remove the auto-detect of SPCP and then change the protocol spcp in sip.

because I have found that this model of phone is the only one of cisco to have it auto-detect protocol SPCP and only by removing the auto-detect and changing the protocol in sip you can have access to the administration of the phone through the browser
