Quote from: wanderingemperor on December 07, 2022, 10:09:47 PMCan you explain why putting that short in parallel with the capacitor seemingly worked?
Quote from: TelePlay on December 08, 2022, 06:43:15 AMWhen on hook, the capacitor allows the line cord (red and green normally) AC ring voltage to pass through the capacitor and ring the ringer, the ring circuit.The capacitor blocks the talk circuit DC voltage from passing directly from the red and green line cord conductors through the ringer.While the ringer will work with or without the capacitor being in the ring circuit, in series with the ringer, the capacitor is needed to prevent a DC voltage drain through the ringer.
