Phone line/phone jack problem

I have a problem with the phone lines oin my new home. When I plug phones into the jacks in my family room and bedroom there is no dial tone. I had a two line phone from my office. I plugged it in and line two lit up and on line two I have a dial tone. I want my single line phones to work.

    The phone is plugged into the phone jack but the lights don't come on and there is no dial tone.

    I have tested the phone on functioning jacks, and traded a working phone successfully into this jack. Is there a setting on the phone that prevents the outgoing dialed numbers from registering?

The wiring on the jacks is set up for a 2 line phone.

If you take the jacks apart, you will see either:
A) red, green, and black, yellow
B)white blue/blue white and white orange/orange white

You need to swap the pairs.
If there are red/green/black/yellow wires. remove the yellow/black and move them to where the red/greens are. Then put the red/green wires, where the yellow/black used to be.

OR, you need to swap the orange and the blue wires.

I have a NEC DTH-8D-1 Corded phone. I moved my desk and plugged the phone in at a different phone line port and the screen now reads "Initialize." What is it asking for? How do I set up my phone at th


Your extension is hardwired to 1 jack, if you plug in somewhere else you'll be lucky if the jack is active with another extension. Someone needs to re-wire your extension in the phone room to your new jack. If it won't activate but says Initialize, then that jack probably has a live fax line or analog extension, but not a digital line that works on your phone.

If I'm understanding right, you are plugging in a regular "residential" phone into a phone system jack. The system phones work differently than home phones and you won't get a dial tone out of the jack unless you use a system phone.

Hello! I haven't a problem Yet! I am contemplating buying a used "owned" Dish single tuner PVR 508 and adding it to my current configuration. My home is 2 years old and wired for cable in 5...


Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.

When the "check phone line" message appears, it is referring to telephone service and not the wire. It appears that your phone jack is "dead" or that there is no working service in the home. Do you have another phone that you can use to check the jack? Is there another jack that you can plug the phone into for a test?

Second line not working


The phone will show that "line in use" message when it's not connected correctly.

If your two phone lines come in to one jack, make sure you are using a 4-wire line cord connected to the "line 1 and line 2" jack on the phone. You may be using a 2-wire cord so the second line isn't reaching the phone.

If the two lines are on separate jacks you need to connect line 2 to the separate "line 2" jack.

If you know for a fact that both lines are properly connected to the phone and it still doesn't see the second line, then it's time for a new phone.

Main line has gone dead throughout our house 619-443-1066. We must have the line working as to medical assistance that is necessary for 2 members in our home.


hi,

outside somewhere on your house is a grey telephone box, open it up with a screwdriver and look inside. your looking for a phone jack, this is where you plug a spare phone in to diagnose wether the problem is inside or outside. the phone jack may already have a small phone jack plug plugged into it, this goes to your house. unplug that and swing it out of the way. use a spare phone and plug it in there. If you plug the phone in and you dont hear a dial tone use your cell phone to call the phone company and tell them what you just did and your problem is outside. If you do hear a dial tone your problem is from the box to the house and for right now you can use an extension cord to run it inside untill you find where your problem is. When you have time you can start troubleshooting by plugging that house plug back into the grey box and unplugging ALL phones and equiptment and start checking every jack in the house to see if you have any dial tone, if you dont have a dial tone anywhere and when you call your phone line its busy that could mean you have a short, if it rings off the hook then you have a broken line, the wire colors in question are RED and GREEN and line 2 are usually yellow and brown or another color, and all of these cant touch or be crossed or you will have a shorted line. If you have kids you might want to check their room to see if theyve been playing around with the jack or jacks , a visual inspection with a magnifying glass and a flashlight into the jacks should show no metal contacts bent or overlapping. taking the covers off the jacks should see those wire colors securely wrapped around the designated wire bolt posts. If you need more assistance write me back
good luck

My phone lines keep on crossing!


If you are in a private residence go to the demarcation box and unplug the phone jack that connects the line to your home. Plug your phone directly into the jack which is now looking at the line and has eliminated your house wiring from the circuit. Make an outgoing call and have someone call you back. If the trouble persists, the trouble has just been proven to be on the line which is a phone company problem. Busy signals occure when a short is detected on the line so you may have cable trouble in your area. Thank You. Jerry
