Question about Lands Phones

1 Answer

A new phone system I have bought requires the jacks in my home to be in parallel. If I remove the cover from a phone jack, is there a way to tell if it's hooked up in a parallel circuit? If it's not in parallel, how can I rewire it so that it is? Thanks.

A parallel phone system means all phone jacks are connected in a series. From phone jack A to phone jack B to phone jack C. That means if jack A is not functioning properly or has a short ,all other phone jacks in that series will cease to function. The other type of system is a home run system.Meaning all phone jacks are ran independently outside to service provider NID Network Interface Device. This is the best to trouble shoot because if one jack fails the others will continue to operate independently. The best way to check is to remove the lead from one side of the phone jack, after carefully removing from wall. Check for a dial tone at other phone jacks if no, replace lead at the initial jack. If dial tone returns you have a series system.

If you had a 8 pin jack (RJ31X) hook you ring and tip to #4 and #5. You can also plug a regular phone cord directly into the unit ito the left hand outlet on the board.

Nec etw 8-2 wont work at home?


Sorry, but there is no way to get this phone to work on your normal residential phone jack. It was designed to be used as part of a key system, which requires the control system (also called the KSU). The phones are a proprietary digital design and only work when attached to the proper KSU. Unless you want to try locating the rest of the system on eBay or purchase through some other vendor, all you can do with the phone is use it as a paperweight.

Removed alarm system; now phone won't work


In the alarm system there was a jack called an RJ31X. This jack is suposed to have the line run from the teleco interface to it and then back out to the rest of the house(except for DSL, it stays ir front of the alarm jack). When the alarm jack was cut out the line bridge was eliminated. To make the line active find the wire that went to the alarm jack and and connect the red wire to the yellow wire and the green wire to the black wire. that should pass the line through to the remainder of the jacks in the house.

Waiting for sync


This phone is a digital phone and requires connection to a digital system commonly called a "key system". If you have removed it from where it was connected and tried to use it at home or somewhere else it will not work. Most home or normal phone jacks are connected to your local provider directly and is what is called an analog system. The 2 are NOT compatable without an interface device. If it is connected to a key system then thier is a problem with the port on the Mitel keysystem that goes to the jack you are plugging the phone into and you will need a technician to fix/rewire this onsite. Hope this helps you. A manual for your phone can be gotton here: http://www.octelephone.com/4150user.pdf

Sandisk M250 ear phones Jack information 2.5 or 3.5 ?


It's the larger headphone minijack standard on most portable tape players etc., not the much larger one found on hime stereo equipment or the smaller one most often found on cellphones. So, "3.5" (mm?), I suppose.

There are several options.

Take the jack out of the board, disassemble it and remove the tip of the plug.

If the tip of the plug is in the top slot, pull the sleeve off of the jack and remove the tip of the plug. When you press the sleeve back into the jack, bend the tab inside the jack up so it will remain firmly in place.

Use the output jacks as the inputs. It's very likely that they're in parallel. The only difference being a low value resistor (will have no effect on the signal) in series with the output jack.

Speaker connections


Not usually. They are generally parallelled inside. But if it's the jack itself and not the amp channel thats broken, you should be able to use it successfully.
