Question about Lands Phones
outside somewhere on your house is a grey telephone box, open it up with a screwdriver and look inside. your looking for a phone jack, this is where you plug a spare phone in to diagnose wether the problem is inside or outside. the phone jack may already have a small phone jack plug plugged into it, this goes to your house. unplug that and swing it out of the way. use a spare phone and plug it in there. If you plug the phone in and you dont hear a dial tone use your cell phone to call the phone company and tell them what you just did and your problem is outside. If you do hear a dial tone your problem is from the box to the house and for right now you can use an extension cord to run it inside untill you find where your problem is. When you have time you can start troubleshooting by plugging that house plug back into the grey box and unplugging ALL phones and equiptment and start checking every jack in the house to see if you have any dial tone, if you dont have a dial tone anywhere and when you call your phone line its busy that could mean you have a short, if it rings off the hook then you have a broken line, the wire colors in question are RED and GREEN and line 2 are usually yellow and brown or another color, and all of these cant touch or be crossed or you will have a shorted line. If you have kids you might want to check their room to see if theyve been playing around with the jack or jacks , a visual inspection with a magnifying glass and a flashlight into the jacks should show no metal contacts bent or overlapping. taking the covers off the jacks should see those wire colors securely wrapped around the designated wire bolt posts.
