Phone Jack Wiring Problem


Your apartment is wired for two lines but you are using only one of the two. Your phone jack has red and green terminals for one line and yellow and black terminals for the other (old color codes). The four wires coming in to your apartment are actually two lines: orange/white and white/orange plus blue/white and white/blue (new color codes). One of those lines is active. Connect the orange/white wire to the red terminal and the white/orange wire to the green terminal. Plug in your phone and listen for a dial tone. If no tone, disconnect the first line and connect the second pair of wires. Listen again. DO NOT CONNECT ANY WIRES TOGETHER. Just follow the steps above. If you still don't get results, the phone company may not have activated your connection

Telephone jack wiring


Most cheap jacks have 4 wires, red, green, yellow & black. Most modern houses have wires paired up (twisted pair) like blue & white with blue line or stripe. Line 1 is red/green or blue/white. Line 2 is yellow/black or orange/white(with orange line/stripe).

Need manual for wiring phones


The 612 system required 3 pairs per phone. Every 3 pairs on the 25 pair cable would be one station. A modern 6 conductor jack would be wired according to the label. If you have jacks with Green,Red,Black,Yellow,White, and Blue wires, then it's wired as follows.
W/Bl - Green
Bl/W - Red
W/Or - Black
Or/W - Yellow
W/Gr - White
Gr/W - Blue

Secondary telephone socket has 4 wires: Green, Red, Blue and White. Not sure in which of the 1 to 6 numbered terminals these wires are fed into? Please help!


If your hooking up the telephone jack for one line you would connect your line to the red/ green pair (3 and 4). If your hooking up 2 lines your second line would go on the yellow/ black pair (2 and 5). If you were hooking up a third line to the jack it would go on the white/ blue pair (1 and 6).

I'm installing 2 phone jacks in my newly remodeled home. We are supposed to have one phone line. Each of the boxes with phone wires in them has two cables coming out of it. In the first box, the one cable...


Pity that whoever did your remodel didn't give you a floor plan. In new construction, we make everything go to a central point. Old style was to loop everything through. It would be easy to tell, because you'd see the loops.

If you want to do this yourself, and save some money, give this a try.
The color code is that the green/red/black/yellow go to the jack. Hook all 4 wires (8 because you're going to hook both cables together to a jack) to the jack. Then, down the road, when someone has to add a second line they won't have to open this back up again. When it comes to the paired cable, look at the wires. One of the wires has more white than blue (White/Blue lead) and one has more Blue that white (blue/white lead) and so forth. You're going to be working with the blue pairs and the orange pairs, and spare out the green and brown pairs.

Strip the 4 remaining wires (the ends so they can go on the screw terminals) and connect them as follows:

White/Blue to Green Blue/White to Red White/Orange to Black Orange/White to Yellow.

If you're using Insulation displacement jack (the kind with caps where you push the wires into the slots), STOP! You're going to need more parts.

I have a cable with 6 wires but my wall phone jack only has connectors for 4 wires; none for the blue and white wires. what to do?


Most phones use ONLY two wires. Check which pair of the 3 pairs you have has about 50 volts on it.

Connect those to the center two contacts of your jack which MIGHT be labeled red and green or ring and tip respectively.

If your phones require other connections, they may be incompatible with the system there.

Replaceing phone wall plate


Hi Leanne!

Normally the conductors in phone cable are colored green, red, black and yellow in older style wiring. Green and red are used for a single line, and black and yellow are for a second line. Newer systems use wires that have conductors twisted together in pairs. White with a blue stripe paired with solid blue or blue with a white stripe is line 1. White with an orange stripe paired with solid orange or orange with a white stripe is line 2. (At least this is true in the US. You said "cheers" so maybe you're not in the US and the color coding's different.)

Chances are your line is using the blue and white wires.Residential telephone equipment isn't polarity sensitive so it really doesn't matter which wire you hook to L+ and L-. Try the white/blue combination first. If you don't get dialtone then try red/black. If still no luck you only have two more combinations to try.

Before you start with the wiring, take another phone on the line off the hook (if you have another one). This will prevent an incoming call from ringing the line, which can give a shock if you happen to be touching a bare end. The ringing voltage is much higher than the normal phone line voltage which won't bother you.

What color wires were there ???
What kind of jack, a new one that had...
white blue/blue
white orange/orange
white green/ green
white brown/brown
?????

If so, the white/white blue would go to the same wires.
If you had red/green and black/yellow, the red/green should go to the white blue/blue.

Wires from the wall are 2(orange/white), 2(blue/white) 2(white/orange and 2(white/blue) my phone outlet which is wired has 1(black), 1(blue), 1(yellow) and 1(black. How are my wall wires to be attached...


Take a look at this image:

0d5b58e.jpg Notice that the Line 1 will typically present on pins 3&4 and Line 2 on 2&5. I would think in your case Black/Blue is Line 1 (3&4) and Yellow/Black is Line 2 (2&5).

If you have a 1 line phone and only have 1 line active, then typically blue and blue/white can be connected to the Blue and Black of your Jack. If this doesn't work, switch with the Yellow and Black.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Good Luck!
