This is a common problem with the magicjack.
The separate power converter module has a high rate of failure.
The MJ works when plugged into a USB port on the computer, but not when plugged into an AC wall socket.

Magicjack is aware of the problem and offers a replacement.
Some people have reported that the replacement modules from Magicjack are no better than the originals and have had repeat failures.
Consider getting a power module from another source. There are lots of AC to USB power converter modules available on Ebay for only a few dollars. Search Ebay for "magicjack power adapter".

Have you check the breaker for the circuit its on? Is there power to the jack? If yes try using it on another jack/phone or at a friends place see if it works there. If it does the problem is either with your phone or computer connection/setup, if you are using one.

My magic jack plus will not work and I am wondering if the electrical connector is bad.


Go to the magic jack website and update your adapter. Also try different USB ports and reboot your computer with magic jack connected. If the computer does not recognize the adapter, try disconnectin and reconnecting into different ports. There is a update option on magic jack website and tech support as well.

Why will my magic jack work plugged into the wall outlet?


This is a common problem with the magicjack. It works when plugged into a USB port on the computer, but not when plugged into an AC wall socket.

Problem:
The separate power converter module has failed.
When the magicjack is plugged into your computer USB port, it is getting power directly from the 5 volt source in the USB port.
In order to use AC wall current to power the magicjack, a power converter module is needed. That module contains a transformer and rectifier that coverts 115V AC into 5V DC. That module is no longer supplying 5V to the magicjack.

Tech section - you can probably skip this part:
The problem is poor quality low ESR electrolytic capacitors in the power module. ESR is Equivalent Series Resistance. A low number is good, high is bad. The ESR of a capacitor is measured with an ESR meter.
The 5V output of the power module measured only 3.5V. I took the power module apart to to trouble shoot. I found two 220uF 10V capacitors that were labelled "Low ESR" (C8 and C9). I measured the ESR of these caps and C8 measured 1.5 Ohms. I replaced the C8 cap and it fixed the problem. 5V output was restored.

Solution:
I do not recommend repairing these power modules. I did it out of curiosity. These modules are very cheap.
Magicjack is aware of the problem and offers a replacement. To contact them, go to www.magicjack.com and go to "support". They will ship you a new power module for about $5.50. Some people have reported that the replacement modules from Magicjack are no better than the originals and have had repeat failures.

I moved. magic jack says no line when hooked back up


  • Is everything turned on?
  • Is the blue light, inside your Magic Jack dongle, on? (Note that the Magic Jack Plus should have a flashing red and green led as well.) If you use the older model you might need to connect it through a powered hub to ensure the device receives enough power to operate properly?
  • If this is a new installation, is your internet service and computer capable of handling the requirements placed upon them by Magic Jack?
  • Do all your connecting cables appear to be firmly attached?
  • Are you watching Netflix, downloading or streaming files at the same time you are attempting to place a call?
  • If you are using the Magic Jack Plus, does the system report Error 3002?
.
Next, you should ask yourself what recent changes you have made to the computer/Magic Jack software? What recent upgrades have you performed to your hardware? Could this have effected the performance of your Magic Jack?
If your difficulties persist, it is time to divide and conquer. Google a 'you tube' link and watch the video. If you cannot connect to the internet, consult your internet provider for assistance. If the video is choppy, the internet connection might be too slow or bogged down. Perhaps your computer is too slow or requires maintenance. If you cannot hear sound, you might be experiencing problems with your soundcard or sound drivers. You should check Control Panel/Sound and ensure that 'USB internet phone by Tigerjet' is installed.
If the video ran correctly, the next step would be to test your handset and phone cord at another location.
If you prove the handset/phone cord to be correct, you have pinpointed your fault to either the Magic Jack or its software. Contact online support for Magic Jack.

I can call out on my Majic Jack Plus but cannot receive calls. The majic Jack is registered and set up on my modem.


This could be failure of the power adapter module.
Is your Magicjack plugged into the wall power thru a power adapter? Try bypassing the power adapter and plugging the magicjack directly into a USB port on your computer. If the magicjack work correctly now, then you have a bad power adapter module.
I had a similar problem. My Magicjack was plugged into a wall socket. First the dial tone became inconsistent, then I could no longer receive calls, then it died completely.
I plugged the MJ into a USB socket on my computer, and it then worked normally.
If you have a failing power adatper, it will continue to deteriorate, and it will eventually fail completely. The blue power on the magicjack will not come on when it is plugged into the power adapter, but it will illuminate when plugged into the USB socket on the computer.
Note: the computer must be on to power the magicjack thru the USB port.

Magicjack is aware of the problem and offers a replacement power adapter module. To contact them, go to www.magicjack.com and go to "support". They will ship you a new power module for about $5.50.
