Quote from: jhutzler on November 08, 2014, 06:36:07 PMDo you know why the button (N1P?) makes a brief dial tone for a second then nada... the handset is dead as usual unless someone answers a call on the wireless phone first... then the old phone works great?
Quote from: jhutzler on November 09, 2014, 11:40:34 AMOk Guys... thanks so much for your helpful advice.I feel very humble to admit the white wire on the hookswitch was not on C1 as it should have been but instead was wired to C2. When I rewired ... presto, I have dial tone.I have disconnected the Magneto as recommended and currently one side of the cap is not in use... the yellow and slate leads. Minor problem... the ringer rings once everytime I lift the handset off the cradle (hookswitch). I've read that isolating the reciever from the DC would help but isn't this already the case with my phone if I'm reading the schematic right.Cheers ... Jeff

I have disconnected red/blue strip from ground and the push button no longer affects the line (no clicks or disconnects)The old phone has a dial tone, answers calls (I cannot confirm disconnect as I am using a cell phone to test and I need to end the call from the cell phone even after hanging up). But I'm really happy so far with this arrangement.On another note: I recently bought a AE50 wall phone from ebay for $12 and when I won the bid, I found out the seller lived just down the street from me. What are the odds?Anyway, I bought a pulse-tone converter and hooked it up and the phone didn't work... but this is a project for another day.Cheers, Jeff

I have probably missed something in the thread As I reed the diagram line 2 are connected to C2 going trough the capacitor to C1 independent of position of hook switch (the other wire from line 2 should go to the generator via the key, but the generator are disconnected so this should not carry current at all! If that's right the capacitor are not good, and lets DC pass trough.I really wonder were I fell off by my opinion this should not work. dsk
