Just started happening: VVX500 picking up handset does not answer phone on transfer

This issue pertains only to call transfers--and it only started happening this way this week some time:

 

Outside line rings in

Any VVX500 set answers the call

Call needs to be transferred to another phone by: 

press transfer button; touch set user's name at top left of screen to reveal other sets on the main screen; touch user to transfer call to.

 

at this point the other user's set rings. prior to this week, the other employee could simply pick up their handset and talk. now, when picking up the handset there is only silence. users must now press the 'Answer' button to speak to the calling employee.

 

To be clear: when a call comes in from an outside line, or another internal handset, picking up the handpiece does answer the phone. Only the 'transfer' function has been affected here.

Hello dibble,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

A good starting point usually is to provide the currently used software version.

 

In addition it may be useful to state if any changes have been made.
