If you have to ask, you probably ought to be giving the job to someone else. It's the same color code as a 25-pair, there are just more binders.

    How about this one. The color code:



    Bell Operators Give Bad Service



    Why Run Backwards You Varmit (or You'll Vomit)



    That translates to Blue Orange Green Brown Slate and White Red Black Yellow Violet. If you look at a 25 pair cable, those are the 10 colors used. The first pair is White/Blue Second White Orange and so on. The 13th pair is Green for the number and Black for the count. Now, in a 200 pair cable the first 25 pair binder will be wrapped with a Blue/White trace, the second with an Orange/White trace...are you picking up a pattern here :-)



    There are 8 traces, so the last 25 pairs will have a Red/Green

    trace.



    The point of this is that if you've never done this before, you can really end up with quite a mess. Or you could pay someone a half-day's wages to terminate the 200 pair and put the clips on with the proper tools. Did I mention there's a multi-punch tool that puts the C clips on?



    The tool is about $100 most places and that would pay for the first 90 minutes or so of an installer's time.

My phone says "Line in use" but nobody is using it.


Some of my telephones will read "Line In Use" when the phone doesn't detect a dial tone. I like to use an old wired telephone to check whether the problem is with the cordless phone base or the phone line wiring.

First plug in the test phone and check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, try a different RJ-11 cable between the phone and the jack. If there is still no dial tone, use the test phone at another jack and check for a dial tone. If you have two jacks with no dial tone, find your incoming telephone service box. If you have a relatively new phone service installation, the service box will have RJ-11 jacks. Plug your test phone into the jack and check for a dial tone. If there is still no dial tone, contact your telephone company. They will repair an outside wiring problem for free. If the service box doesn't have an RJ-11 jack, you'll need to ask your telephone company to test the phone line for you.

If there is a dial tone at another jack or at the service box, you have an inside wiring problem. You can check for loose or broken wires inside of the jack. Most use either screw terminals or a punch-down design. For the screw terminals, strip another section of the unbroken part of the wire, if needed. Secure the wire under the screw. For the punch-down terminal, take off the cover. Then you'll need a tool that is available in most hardware stores in the electrical wiring section. Do not strip the wire; just place it over the correct place in the terminal and push it into the contacts with the tool. Trim off any excess wire with a small pair of small wire cutting pliers, if the excess wire is blocking the cover from fitting back onto the terminal. http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx has a good diagram of the wire color and pin assignments. If the wiring is okay at the jack, you'll need to check the rest of the wiring for problems. Since the broken wire might be inside the wall, you may want to have a professional check it out. Your telephone provider's technicians can do this for a fee. If you have a DSL computer line, you should check the DSL filter. If the filter is inside at the jack, you'll need to replace the filter. If it is out at the service box, your telephone company will do the replacement.

If there is a dial tone at the jack with the test phone, check the purchase date on the L401 system. If it is under warranty (1 year usually), contact Motorola. Otherwise, replace your Motorola phone system. It's generally not worth the minimum repair and shipping costs.

I hope this helps.

(I've had dial tone issues after lightning strikes (the DSL filter was damaged), mice eating wires (buried phone line) and due to county road crew/contractors who dug too close to the wire. The first two problems required phone calls to get a technician to fix the outside line. The last one gets fixed by the contractors/phone company as soon as they can.)

I recently switched to the comcast phone service from ATT. I have a structured wire set up. I also kept an ATT land line so I'd have a telco line in an emergency--like an earthquake. On every phone in the...


Assuming you have 2 line phones, what happens if you swap lines? If your structured wiring is the 568B standard, which is the most typical, the second line must be punched down to the white/green pair instead of the orange/white pair for 568A wiring. It sounds like the second line may be daisy chained in the panel so you have to see how it's wired and troubleshoot from there. Sometimes a pair is connected to a power supply to provide power for a phone or light but that's not typical any more. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you have more info or photos of the panel and jacks I'd be happy to help further.

Our Phone wiring is underground and the connector box on the outside of mthe house was done in1978. My problem is that I hit the wires and some of them were knocked loose from the terminal and now I don't...


green wires and red wires.......... that is line one. also solid blue and blue with a white stripe is also line one..... so tie the greens and blue w/white stripes together and tape off (if not screwed down to block), and do the same with the red wires tied together with the solid blues.

yellow and black is line two.....and so is solid orange and orange w/white stripe. then just fill in the blanks as stated above.
its simple, think of the wires as speaker wire in a way to simplify what you are looking at. multiple Pairs (+/-) wires color coded. if the wires came off of the screw down posts, just match up the colors like stated above on the posts and screw them back down.

Can't remember, what 2 terminals I punch down for paging? Was thinking is was the violet / blue pair, but thats not it. HELP! Chuck


it depends on the system type, on an MICS the external page is on the yellow/blue pair of the second connector (right above the MOH pair).
on a CICS, it the violet/brown of the second connector (right below the MOH pair).

Phone system does not accept blocked caller ID


Wow, that really tests my memory...oh wait. I have it on a bookmark :-)

http://www.tech-faq.com/lass-codes.shtml

The phone system isn't blocking calls, your phone company is.

Try *87 or *68 and see if that works. You dial it into line #1.

Anonymous Call Rejection is the telco feature.

Adding new extension to Nortel Norstar Meridian Phone System


They should have terminated your voice on a block in your phone room. If that is the case you now need a punch down tool and a spool of cross connect wire. You would punch down one side of the cross connect wire on the tip and ring of the switch pairs and the other end of the cross connect wire on the blue pair of your station cable.

New phone wire from box to home need diagram to show how to


The phone company should make that connection. Use a phone jack assembly with alligator clips to find the dial tone. The first line color should be a pair, blue&blue-white, 2nd line, orange& orange-white, then green followed by brown pairs which would be 4 line numbers in that color code order. Each line is just a single pair. Thank you. Jer
