You need to dismantle phone and replace Varta CR1/2AA 3Volt lithium battery. Dismantling is easy enough but you MUST lay out the screws etc so they go back in the right place, particularly the one with the two nylon washers underneath the head.

Hi

If a BT Contour payphone has no dial tone or display it usually meams that the internal, fixed lithium battery has failed.

We have repaired many Contour payphones by removing the battery and modifying the payphone to run on standard replaceable batteries.

If you replace the lithium battery with another one, you'll have the same problem again.

Have purchased this producct plugged it in no ringtone no flashing to indicate incoming call have operational line with dialing tone, help please asap as only line into work


I am assuming that you can hear dial tone on the handset, and you can make calls on the phone. If this is correct, then I would recommend contacting BT and getting the phone replaced with one that works. http://www.bt.com/help/home/landline.html

You will need the key to be in the lock while you enter the pin - this seems so obvious but can easily be forgotten.

How easy is it to to replace battery in a Contour 50 payphone? One site says the soldering will blow the chips. Terry


HI,

I have just replaced the battery on a similar phone today (not a BT one, but a "Payphone Link 20", its belgian counterpart).

It was a bit tricky as the battery is soldered on both sides of the circuit board, but the battery was replaced in a matter of minutes and the phone works fine now.

I wouldn't recommend this to the novice however. You need good soldering skills + equipment, and basic knowledge of how to handle a circuit board without damaging it (i.e. short circuit or electro-static discharge).

If you're not sure, I would advise you to get it done by someone familiar with electronics repair. Otherwise there are several companies that could fix it for you : you send them the front of the phone by mail, they replace the battery, clean and check the phone, and send it back to you.

Phone receiver not working


Is this a replica or a real payphone? Will the transmitter cap unscrew?
A couple of things to try, is take out the transmitter, hold it in the palm of your hand (with the holes in your palm) and slap the assembly on a hard surface. That unpacks the carbon granules.

If that doesn't work, it also may be that a relay is operating because it is want is called a Postpay payphone. Try reversing the Tip and Ring (green and red) line connections and test it again.

Finally, a genuine "g" handset transmitter capsule is about $3, making it cost more to ship than buy. Your picture shows a non "armored" handset cord. If that's really the truth, is the handset black and non-modular? And how does it fit into the payphone housling?

Please don't rate this until you have answers....

Bt contour 50 phone is completely dead. no display, dial tone. replaced cords Done all resets that manual say. not sure of water damage, but circuits and box all dry


Yeah, the internal battery is probably exhausted. You can replace it with a new one, which you can get on eBay, but you probably need to know how to solder it in
