Question about Phones
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 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.
