Quote from: ernest12 on November 22, 2011, 08:01:29 PMI have been trying to activate my W.E. 555 PBX. So far I have accomplished the following:I connected the wall phone jack to the jack (labeled incoming) mounted and wired in the back of the switchboard. This jack module has green and red wires wired to the terminal block on board. The yellow and black wires are also wired to terminal blocks.Withe the other outlet on the jack module on back of board (labeled telephone) I connected a rotary telephone.When I dial my land line phone the buzzer and lamp light for the trk circuit. I plug in the trunk, turn the key. take out station cord and plug it into station jack.MY PROBLEM: NO DIAL TONE ON ROTARY PHONE, CANNOT RING THAT PHONE FROM CORD BOARD Any help would be appreciated.
Quote from: Phonesrfun on November 23, 2011, 01:53:14 AMThe 555 like any other switchboard needs a power supply to extend calls through to another phone. Probably a 48-volt supply, although it may be 24 volt.
