The tip and ring (red and green) wires in the phone line are the ones that are used in this instance and there is technically no polarity (+ or -) because the current on this line is AC. Much like household current most device will work no matter which way the plug is inserted. There are polarized plugs which only work one way just to keep everything standard. Long story short: this should not be a problem under normal conditions.

My new vtech cordless phones says noline what can that be ?


Welcome to FixYa!
It means that there is no telephone line connected.
  • Check the telephone cable if it is properly connected in your phone and on the wall socket.
  • Check if the telephone cable from your phone to the wall socket is not damaged.
  • It also possible that the telephone line from your wall socket to the post is damaged or cut off.

Cannot connect to my Internet. On my 2Wire modem at home, The Power LED light is solid green, the Ethernet LED light is green, the DSL LED light is continually flashing, and there is NO Internet LED...


With the DSL light always flashing, it means that either the ADSL signal (synchronization) does not reach your modem, or your modem cannot 'read' the signal.

You need to determine if the problem is from one of the following places :
  • outside of your house (your land line or ISP equipment) or from the modem;
  • your telephone-cable inside your house or
  • one of your equipment;


Try the following manipulations to determine from where the default comes :

  1. Determine if the problem is in your house or on the land line
    • Unplug each and every equipment which is connected to your telephonic installation (Fax, phones, answering machines etc);
    • Using the shortest telephone cable (RJ11) you possess, plug only your modem to the main telephone jack of your house.
    • If the DSL LED still flashes continuously, the problem is somewhere between your ISP's equipment and your house. You should call them and expose the situation. At this stage, you can't do much else.

  2. Determine if the problem is in your house installation
    If the DSL LED lights up when it is plugged to the main telephone jack, then it is either one of your equipment which is at fault, or the house installation. To pinpoint the problem, do the following :
    • With all the other equipment still unplugged, try the modem on all the other telephone jacks you have around the house.
    • If the DSL flashes continuously on one of the jacks, you will have found the source of your miseries. Depending on your ISP's terms and conditions, you will either have to call them of call for the services of a third-party technician to solve the problem.
    • If the DSL lights up correctly on all the telephone jacks, then your house telephone installation is good. Proceed to the next series of tests.

  3. Determine which equipment is at fault
    • Plus your modem to one telephone jack and wait for the DSL line to light solid.
    • Use a splitter (ADSL filter) to plug the equipments you possess (telephone, fax etc) one by one. Verify each time if the DSL LED is still lit or flashes continuously.
    • If one of the equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, it is that equipment which causes your problem.
    • If every equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, the it is the splitter (ADSL filter) which is causing the problem. You can confirm this hypothesis by testing each and every ADSL filter you have in your possession.
    • Replace any faulty equipment and you should have eliminated the problem.
If nothing of this solves your problem, you won't have any choice but call you ISP. Don't hesitate to tell them all tests you will have done.

May I also make some recommendations :
  1. Use a power surge protector (not a UPS though) to plug your modem to the electric outlet BUT plug it directly to the telephone jack;
  2. Make sure your modem is plugged in as far as possible from UPS, television, etc.;
  3. If possible, don't plug the modem in the same electric outlet as other equipments;
  4. Don't use any telephone extension cable to plug your modem to the telephone jack.

Hope this helps you. Let me know what happens next.

How do you set up fax phone on the HP officejet 6215


hi you really have a very good choice of printers is one of the best printers from hp
inorder to set fax on ur printer you should first be sure what type of telephone line you are using
there are 2 type of line 1 dedicated -> that is directly attached for fax and has no other telephone or TAM connected if you have this line you can directly attach the phone line on the printer line 1
the other type of line is shared that means you use the same line for phone and fax in this the connection should be as :- telephone line from wall jack to the printer line 1 then from printer ext port to telephone answering machine (if any ) then from answering machine to telephone (if u have a dsl line that means u use phone and internet from the telephone line then there will be 2 lines comming out of the splitter 1 to router and other to telephone here follow the shared line connection mentioned above using the line that goes to the telephone )
now power on the printer and press the setup button (menu) now navigate to basic fax set up press ok and then go to rings to answer it should be 4 rings now go back and go to advance fax setting and then to distintive ring (DRP) select all rings and press ok now run fax test if it passes then ur fax is set up try sending fax now hope this will help you

Canon PIXMA MP780 creates an "off-hook" condition for phone line 2


Hi,

Does your Pixma multifunction printer have two lines in? for line 1 and line 2? Your active line should be in line 1 of course.

However, I do not think your printer is the source of the problem.

When the phone company turns off line 2 they can do it one of three ways depending on the generation of your local telephone system.

At the back of your home or in the office building there should be a telephone network interface box. Once section if open to the customer to do basic tests, the other is reserved an uses a security screw head to keep you out. You have either red/green and yellow/black or blue/blue-white and orange orange-white wires. Each color refers to tip and ring in telephone polarity. If these are reversed your phone will work but not well.

For your smart phone with two lines in, I'd check out at the box and switch the wires for black/yellow or orange orange-white. When these are reversed the 'polarity' is off but voltage would still be present. In your case, the smart phone MAY be reading the crossed wires and giving you a line open vs. a line empty/disconnected which is nearly the same thing.

If you still have the second set of lines connected to your phone disconnect them from the phone and then underneath the phone you MAY find a switch to hard set your phone for single line or double line.

Let me know how you make out.

Regards,
Worldvet

Cannot text message gsm lines


By land line, do you mean a regular telephone? not a cellular? I'm not aware of ragular telephones that can send/recieve sms. If you want to text messages but can't use a cell phone, then you can use messenger programs like ICQ, that have an SMS feature. Good luck
