VVX 501 Rebooting on Retrieving a Parked Call

I have a VVX501 on version that is rebooting on retrieving a parked call. Unsure of why it is happening. What files do I have to post so that the issue can be diagnosed/fixed?


I have the following config options enabled:



I then perform the following:


1. Start a call, select "More" and then "Park" to an extension 6001 for example.

2. After the call gets parked I then select the main line, and the "More" Menu option on the top right corner . Then "Pickup".

3. Then I enter 6001 and phone freezes a bit and restarts on its own.

Hello @donileo,


welcome to the Polycom Community.

Both the community's Must Read First and the community's FAQ reference the basic minimum information a new or follow up post should contain.

This ensures the questions having to be asked are limited and any new or follow up post contains the right amount of details to ensure any voluntary participant within the community does not spend additional time chasing basic information.

As a reminder the basic information asked for:


  • Provide the exact Software Version of your Phone


  • Provide the Phone Model


  • Provide the Call Platform (aka openSIP, Skype for Business, Lync)


  • If applicable provide a backup of the phone in question


  • If possible provide a Log and either attach them or use the Code Tag.Consult the Troubleshooting Section found within the FAQ if applicable


  • If possible provide the MAC Address or Serial of the device


  • Provide details if the issue is a day 1 issue or only happened after an upgrade or any other relevant details



Whilst providing the answers to the above may not directly impact any possible answer the community can provide, it does enable Polycom to have an overview of the current software used in the field and allows us to look up potential support partners if an issue needs to come into support.


The next step would be to open a ticket.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Polycom devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

If the unit is no longer within warranty please be prepared to Pay Per Incident / PPI. This is all outlined in detail here

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards

Steffen Baier
