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.

I tried it with IE, Firefox and chrome and with all firmware versions starting from the default and then 7.5.1a, 7.5.2b, 7.5.4
Then it must be a hardware issue... could be the memory/harddisk is damaged.

I tried with three SPA501G phones and have the same problem on all
How are you providing power to the phones ? I think those phones don't come with power supply. they have POE port available.
Or it could be that you're missing this part of the user guide.

In page 46, check this user guide.

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
by using the phone web user interface, the configuration profile must be writable.
Your system administrator might have disabled the phone option to make the
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:

phone system administrator such that you cannot modify this parameter.

Saving the Configuration Profile
Click Submit All Changes when you have finished modifying the fields in the
phone web user interface to update the configuration profile. The phone is
rebooted and the changes are applied.
Click Undo All Changes if you want to clear all changes made this session and

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
