Question about GE 29490GE2 Corded Phone

Open Question

GE phone 29490GE1

I have a couple of these which have suffered a lightning surge and its getting a bit expensive to keep buying new ones. They still function but not fully. I need a circuit diagram. Can you help?
Would be nice to send it to you for repair but I live in South Africa which makes it a bit difficult.
PS
The local GE agent is not interested.

Thanks

SOURCE: i need the circuit diagram

No detailed service information was ever available for GE/Thomson phones, so there is no diagram available. When under warranty, the phones were returned to GE and replaced. Out of warranty, the only parts available were complete boards. At our shop, we would occasionally track down and repair power problems by tracing out the board, but this was usually just an exercise in futility. These phones were never meant to be serviced.

Tip

Ge phone


Bought GE phone, 2 years later, will not record. My Tip is buy from a reputable company like one in Japan, big US corporations are in it for the stock and most products do not last, or require a expensive warranty. GE does not bring good things to life... but that is just a personal opinion.

Yesterday, we had lightning hit close to the house; the phone hasn't worked since.


Call your phone provider and hey will follow free service to your house. Otherwise you can try another phone and make clear is the problem in phone or the line… in first case phone is broken and usually expensive to repair, in the second case it is phone company problem.

Lightning stike over house and now base unit won't work. Phoen line is okay. Want to see if it is the power adapter. If so, can I buy a new adapter instead of the whole phone unit?


yes you can get an adapter seperately but it depends on which phone you are using.
you can also buy china makes of your adapter at very low price.
But if you prefer to go with quality not price then you can go to any of the service shops of your phone's company and buy a new adapter from there.

My FF 2125ATF answerer/phone is not working correctly. The handset clicks constantly and the buttons most of the time don't beep when pressed and then there is no dial tone. The battery pack has the...


It sounds as though your phone has been hit by a power surge or lightning. Try the phone at another location and try another phone at this location to make sure there are no problems with the line. I would almost bet you will find that another phone will work but this phone will not work at another location. Phones are very susceptible to a power surge and to a lightning strike. If another phone works at this location then just buy another phone. It will be cheaper than having this one repaired. Phones are cheap but repairs are not. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Lightning strike ac adaptor is fried


Your phone did expirence a surge that probably blew the ac adaptor which happens most of the time, u can buy one of those universal adaptors and look on the back of the old adaptor for the output voltage it will usually read between 3 and 8 volts DC.Set the universal adAptor voltage to the setting right below the voltage output on the back of the ac adaptor.

No dial tone


Try the telephone cord from your cordless to another known working phone. I have had these cords go defective.

If the phone is really defective, it is possible that the input circuits that connect to the tele line are damaged. Common causes are voltage surges in the line or surges from lightning. Normaly these phone has protection, but this is not always absolute or fully dependable.

There are many other things that can fail in a phone to cause no sound.

If the phone is defective and it is under warranty, it would pay to have it fixed. If it is not under warranty, it would probably pay to buy a new one.

My phone works, but it doesn't ring!


disconnect all phones and just connect the GE phones.
there is only a certain amount of power transmited through a phone line to make the phone ring if you have too many phones running off the same line then the ones further away from the main connection suffer
