SOURCE: Phone line/phone jack problem

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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: No dial tone, just buzzing noise - should be 2 line phone, 1 jack

What you need is a dsl filter since you are working off a splitter. You can usually get these for free from your phone company.

Display check phone line


Either your phone line is dead or your base station is not plugged in correctly (or broken). Buy a cheap non-wireless phone and check the phone jack. If that phone works your Panasonic was had the line plugged in correctly you need to buy a new phone. If not you need to call your phone company and get a repair scheduled. Note, the phone company will charge to repair phone lines if they are damaged inside your house.

The 2 jacks on the back of the Arris modem are labeled "1/2" & "2". The first jack labeled "1/2" means that the jack is capable supporting 2 different phone numbers, a line 1 and a line 2. The second jack labeled "2" means that it is capable of supporting only a second phone number. Therefore your 1 phone number is working correctly from the port labeled "1/2".

There are different types of phone splitters. It is possible that the one you used may have been to split lines 1 & 2 on a single jack into two seperate jacks. Take a closer look at the splitter and see if the 2 ports are labeled differently.

Hope that helps.

The magic jack is pluged into the phoneline directly


OK.. First of all, I am hoping you understand the basics of the MagicJack concept ?? Highspeed Internet connection on your PC, MagicJack plugged into your USB port, with a phone plugged into the other end of the MagicJack ? It requires High Speed, no dial up, and marginally works on my wireless Broadband due to atmospheric influences. It DOES work on my bluetooth wireless cell modem just based on the better speeds I get from the modem vs. my wireless Broadband.

1. If you have a Cable Modem or Wireless Broadband Dish for internet, follow the steps below.. IF you have DSL, skip to # 2.. if you have Dial-up skip to # 3,

I personally own wireless Broadband, so my ongoing experience is from here. I own a MagicJack for traveling and a Vonage line, for my house fax line service because the MagicJack is not strong enough, power wise, to push through my CAT/5 house, phone lines. Vonage does provide phone for the entire house, for the most part, cleanly, because Vonage uses a powered router to provide the final signal, which I then jumber over to a phone jack to connect into the house. It also requires that you disconnect your external phone lines, that would normally go back to the "Big Bad Phone Company". This can be done at the demarcation point, where your regular phone lines connect into a box, outside your house ? The internet I have, is in my shop, about 150' from the main house, Vonage's router power's the whole house, just fine.

2. With DSL, you will have good solid speeds, but you will still have the issue of, MagicJack, being too low in it's power source, because it comes from the USB port of your PC. You are basically going to be stuck with a single wireless or corded phone, for the MagicJack service. In this case, since the DSL is fed through the BBPC phone lines, you will not be able to 'pipe', even Vonage back through your house phone lines.

3. If you're on dialup, you're going to have poor service, out of the box.. you're just not going to be fast enough to be clean.

As an added note.. Your query for help is concerning.. again, high speed internet into your PC, MagicJack plugged into your PC's USB port, the phone plugs into the MagicJack's RJ-11 phone port.


Thank you for your time in these matters.

Respectfully,

Two phones in use with Motorola VT1005 result in very low volume


disconnect the POTS line incoming to your home on the outside of your house. This will make the phone wiring within the house a standalone network. Plug the Line 1 jack of your TA into any available phone jack and the remaining jacks in the house will be energized. This will create the same environment as you had with POTS.

Cannot send or receive faxes.


Try a phone hand set on the wall jack to make sure you can get a dial tone and the line is alive.
Then plug the fax phone line into that wall jack. Make sure the phone line is also in the right port on the back of the Officejet printer, where it most likely says LINE -IN and NOT where it shows an image of a phone set.

Motorola v3i screen blank


remove the LCD display cover, you will see a little silver (small tiny magnetic) looks like a watch battery. take it out, and put it back in again, and remove the LCD display plug, and put it back in again. Should work, make sure remove the battery first.

GE dect 6.0 cordless phone bought at walmart


We had the same problem.

"Our phones worked fine for two weeks but now you can not dial out
and when someone calls us they can't hear we say. The line still works
fine with our old phone1.gif."

To fix the problem, I simply unplugged the base AC plug from the outlet, waited about 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. Both handsets said searching on the display and then handset names returned to the display as originally programmed. The phones returned to operation as normal.
