Wiring a phone jack

Hello,

My husband was installing a new phone jack and now everytime the phone rings, I get knocked off the internet and there is a lot of interference in the phone line. In addition, the DVR (we have the filters still on the phone lines) will not load the programming information...HELP!

We have a Leviton phone jack, but the colors of the wores do not match the illustration?

Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated.

I have just moved into a new house, my computer & fax machine is in a room with no telephone jack. i have cordless phones but the extnetion phone has no outlet jack. is there a solution without h


Hello friend, you seem to be talking about how to get broadband / Internet to your computer.
Sounds like you need to buy a wi-fi router and install it at the phone company connection. This will then 'broadcast' your Broadband Internet all over the house. You also need to buy a 'Wi-Fi dongle' (check on Ebay) which you plug in to a USB port on your PC. Install the above two as per their Instructions and you should be fine.

Why does my phone say no line?


That means that it is not connected to the wiring that has voice data on it. IT cannot detect the voltage that should be there. Check the wires to the plug in to the phone jack.

Can not tune the ringer on


You should be able to change the ringer settings in two ways when the handset is not in use. 1) Press and hold the Volume up/Down arrows on the handset. The handset should show the current ringer setting (High, Low, Ringer Off). Press Select. The current setting should flash and you will hear the current volume (if the ringer is on). Use the up/down arrows to select your desired setting; the phone should give a ring. Then press Select to confirm. Again the phone should ring.
2) Press Prog. Use the up/down arrows to select Ringer Volume. Then press Select and use the up/down arrows to chose a new volume. Press Select to confirm.

If your phone still does not ring, there are items to check.
Try a new telephone line cord and make sure that the base is plugged into a working outlet. Move closer to the base.
Make sure that you are away from other electronics that could interfere. Check that you do not have too many devices plugged into your phone line. Each one should have an REN (ring equivalence number). The total REN for all devices should be 5 or less; disconnect the other extensions/devices and test again.
Make sure that the phone is providing a dial tone and a test phone will ring when dialed. (I like to use an old corded phone for testing.) If a test phone won't ring, you have a wiring problem. See additional trouble-shooting information below.
Remove the battery in the handset and then reconnect it. Wait for the handset to synch with the base and try again.
If you have a DSL filter, try replacing it.
The manual for the CS5121 is available from V-Tech here: http://www.vtechphones.com/vtechphones/index.cfm/product-detail/?event=ehCatalog.productDetail&ProductID=55#documents .

Phone line testing:
Using a test phone with a new line cord, check for dial tone and ring at the first jack. If your test phone rings, then the problem is the handset. Move to another jack on the line and test again. If you get a ring here, the first jack or the wiring to the jack has a problem. If there is no ring, find where your service comes in. Open the box and check the type of connection. If you have a relatively new phone service, you'll find an RJ-11 jack. Plug in your test phone and check for dial tone and ring. If it doesn't work or there is no RJ-11 jack, contact your service provider. They can test the line and will repair any outside problems for free. If the problem is inside, you will need to look at all the exposed wiring for damage. If only the one jack is bad, open it up and check that the wires are properly connected. There are two types of jacks: one secures the conductors with screws, the other is a keystone. The keystone jacks require a punch down tool to press in the conductors. This punchdown tool is available from many home improvement stores in the wiring section. This site has a picture of how the conductors should be connected: http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx .

If the handset is bad, you can try a replacement handset, if available. If the phone is under warranty, contact V-tech. Otherwise decide if it is worth servicing, these phones were not meant to be user serviced.

I hope this helps.

We have an AT&T HFAI 10 Phone that is ringing very low when someone calls in. If we plug the phone in a different jack it rings normally but when we plug the phone in the jack in the office it rings...


Likely there is a problem with one of the wires connected to the jack in the building. Try yet another phone in that jack. If it experiences the same problem you need to check the wiring. Likely you will find a problem at either the splices someplace or the jack itself. When people work around the wiring, often they knock a wire loose. with these electronic phones, they sometimes work marginally suffering low ring volumess, noise or other failures.

If you had a 8 pin jack (RJ31X) hook you ring and tip to #4 and #5. You can also plug a regular phone cord directly into the unit ito the left hand outlet on the board.

Why can't i get a dail tone?the phone will do everything else like ring,but thats it.has new battery.it also acts like it is charging


When it rings can you actually pick it up and talk to the person on the other line? If not then either the phone is bad or you have a wiring/jack problem. When you open up a phone jack you'll see two wires; one provides the ring, and the other gives you dial tone. Make sure both have good connectivity.

CRV has knocking sound coming from rear passenger side


inspect the braking system for warped or uneven rotor surface, as this may cause this noise and uneven pad wear. CV joints also could cause this if the boots are torn, have insufficient grease, are damaged,or have worn bearings. Hopefully this helps

We have a panasonic kx-t7431 phone system in our office and want to add 2 more handsets to it. How do we do it


Hello,

Each phone needs it's own set of wires to the main control unit. You cannot use splitters or connect a new jack up to another jack like home phones can. Do not connect your phone directly to the phone company's phone line. It will not work and a ring signal will break your phone.

The phone you have (kx-t7431) can work on one of several different Panasonic phone systems so your first step is finding out which model control unit you have.

Some of the smaller systems you can plug phones directly into them but the larger systems need a phone jack terminated at a punch down block.

Once connected your phone should work with the default settings. If you need it to ring at special times or with special phone lines then you'll have to do some system programming.

If you want to tackle this yourself you will probably need to obtain an "installation & programming" manual for your specific system.
