Question about Vintage 1983 Darth Vader Speakerphone Telephone

2 Answers

I just bought a 1983 Darth Vader Speaker Phone AS IS from an antique store. I need an adapter for the power source. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the voltage listed anywhere on the product. Would anyone out there know what the voltage would be?

I have the same phone but it does not require any power adapter, just the phone line. Mine does have a plug for headphones. If you plug in the phone line and push the on/off button it should work. If it does not work there might be something wrong with the phone.

I have one of these phones, too! I can confirm that it does not need anything but the phone cord to operate. I don't use it much (I would never get rid of it, though)... but I just tried to turn it on, and nothing happened. I turned it off, then on and off a few times... then it worked. I suspect the contacts for the power switch are not the best quality, and "working" the switch made it function again.

I bought mine used almost 30 years ago (for $3.50, at a garage sale - a worthy investment, whether it worked or not), and it was just the phone - no cables, box or instructions. I never learned what the round jack in the back was for. I'd like to confirm "what" it actually is, before plugging anything into it!

    According to the instruction manual that came with the phone, the round jack just above the phone jack is an optional ac adapter that is sold separately. It says if the speaker volume or microphone volume is too low or if the red light in Darth Vader's chest does not illuminate, use the optional ac adapter (ATC model number 719068-01). Hope this helps.

When I dial out on my 1983 darth vader speakerphone all I get is a busy signal. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?


This phone was made when most phone companies were still using non touchstone systems. When you dial you can hear it simulate an older rotary dial phone. This was how the earliest touch button phones worked. I am not sure the phone company''s systems are still compatible with the rotary systems. Mine does the same thing when dialing out, but receives a call perfectly.

I have a Darth Vador 1983 speakerphone but it needs an adapter and the phone does not specify what kind. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


I have the same 1983 Darth Vader phone but mine does not require a power adapter. If you plug in the phone line and push the on/off button you should hear a dial-tone. Mine does have a spot on the back of base to plug in headphones or a microphone, I'm not sure which.

My Sakar Darth Vader helmet clock radio did not come with instructions. How do you get it to talk and not just play the radio?


When you set the alarm, turn the volume button on the front counter-clockwise (volume down) until it clicks. Darth will then wake you with one of three extremely LOUD, over-modulated soundbites or the electronic "beep-beep-beep" alarm . You can select the different soundbites/alarm with the "SELE-AL" button on the back. The only problem is, you can't tell which one you've selected until the alarm goes off. Cheap design.
