This may be your lucky day :-) If your MM is an early ATC model, you might be able to just REVERSE the red and green wires on the jack or base cord. Usually, the touch tone pad will make a little pressing sound but no tone comes out. Early TT pads were polarity sensitive and that's what we used to restrict dialing (yeah, remember phones USED to be hardwired into the jacks). Anyway, try that first. If the pad is really dead, you can probably order a replacement one for about $20, the labor and instructions to replace it will probably double or triple that.

If you find that it is not just polarized, pry up the faceplate and read the number on the side of the tone pad and post it here. It's probably a 35xxxxEPG or A!. I think I have a couple of those and the wiring diagram here.

Just got the kid a old mickey mouse phone it rings in but when you try to dial out it will not go through it a big mickey standing on the base and the phone is red


Really old phones used a round dial that made pulses. It was a switch that made contacts according to the number. If you dial "5" it made contact 5 times on the line. I believe this only works on a real telephone line. It won't work on a digital phone line. They need touch-tone dialers. So, make sure you are using it on a line that can use pulsed dialers.

Have a 1976 Mickey Mouse push button phone. I get a dial tone, but not able to dial out


This may be something as simple as REVERSING the line wires or a bad tone pad. Some pre 1980's tone pads didn't have polarity guard (EPG) and that's what we used to restrict dialing on touch tone lines (poor man's dialing restriction).

You can open up the jack the phone plugs into and reverse the red and green wires, or open up the phone and do the same thing. If it were my choice, I'd reverse the jack. If that doesn't fix it, pry off the faceplate cover over the dial, read the part number on the right side of the tone pad and post back. I'm sure I have an equivalent in the warehouse (outside of my 2 TT Mickey's) that I can give you a price on.

I have a 1976 American Telecomunications Corp Mickey Mouse Rotary phone. I am the original owner. The mouth piece does not appear to be working nor the ear piece. Also the cradle for the hand set gets...


Thanks to Eli Whitney (interchangable parts), there is probably a solution to this. http://www.public.carl.airpost.net/Phones/sc500.pdf
Try forcing Mickey's hand up and see if you get sound.
The spring that keeps it up is probably deteriorated over time. A little spring bending and strengthening will make "e" and "f" contacts seperate when you raise the handset.

Since ATC's used Comdial/Stromberg parts, this will be really close to your wiring diagram.

Go into menu, and find 'Fax settings', using arrow keys, press enter.
scroll through menu until you find 'Fax send' menu , or similar, and press enter.

Find the 'Dial type' setting, press enter, and select 'tone' dialling, (NOT Pulse), and press enter.
Exit from menu.

The enter key might appear as a green 'tick' or 'OK' key.

Vintage mickey mouse telephone works perfectly EXCEPT it does not ring to alert incoming calls? help..help..


Did it start with a modular plug and base cord, or the old style?

One of my 3 is an ATC made about 1982. You may be able to put the green and yellow wires together and the ringer will work. If not, post back and we'll have to open 'er up :-)
