Question about IBM ComCentral 33.6K (7852032) Modem
My modem was damaged by a lightning strike. I took it to be repaired at a computer service shop.
After it was repaired, whenever I plug a phone line into it, it always picks up the line and never hang up. So, I have to unplug it and when I want it to dial, I have to plug it everytime. It works but I am upset with the tech guy who fix my mdoem.
Every fax modem features seems to work ok with its software but the modem cannot detect dial tone and a voice message that I hear from a "local access" feature was not as loud as normal.
Here are my summary of the problems.
1. Modem always picks up the line whenever I plug it in both "Line" and "Phone" connectors.
2. Modem cannot detect dial tone.
3. Voice message is not loud as normal.
4. The "Phone" and "Line" connectors at the back of the modem seem to swap each duty.
I took 2 photos of the PCB (front and back) for you to see which parts I see that were replaced. I would like you to comment on it and suggest me how to fix this problem by myself before taking it to the service guy.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

The T20 has a modem built in, Look on the side, not the back. Look for the port with the phone icon. It will have only 2 center contacts, vs the ethernet port which is a bit wider, and will have 8 contacts.
