General Discussion / Re: So just purchased a pani 61610.

Perhaps the first thing you might program (if you have a proprietary Panasonic telephone) is to change the ringing so that 16 phones won't ring for an incoming call!....

No way!! that's most of the fun of having it in the first place.  However I didn't know about 81 and so on to select lines. Mine is in default mode at the moment, I just used the 7731 to program the time and date.

Between the adapter using D cells and superbrightleds, your covered. It says that bulb is a 1156 that is a single pin and the base is larger than what I thought it would be.
But then again they also have 6 volt led bulbs, but I didn't look at the color specs. But they have some really bright bulbs at 12 volts.

You could use a small rectified bridge and connect it so it dials out either way. But I think it's odd that your Panasonic would have correct polarity, but your voip wouldn't.
Can you put a tester in the voip and see if the polarity is correct, and check your system as well. That way you will know what is backwards. Because it sounds like you don't have a polarity guard in Mickey.

All that is inside Mickey is the Network, the hookswitch and the dial. So, unless the polarity guard is integrated into one of those components it doesn't have one. As far as testing which has the reversed polarity, I would assume its the VoIP, because every other phone I have works fine on the 616. However, they all also work on the VoIP. So, the problem has to be Mickey.

I noticed another problem that I had not before. Mickey is a special phone, so he gets his own jack on my VoIP line and is generally not hooked up to the 616. I noticed that it will not break dial tone (it is a touch tone) while connected to the 616, but will when hooked to its usual jack. So, I reversed tip and ring. This time, the second I plugged into the 616 the 7731 would drop out and as soon as I unplugged it 7731 comes back. Then, leaving tip and ring reversed, because that solved the dialing issue, I disconnected and isolated yellow and black. Now the 7731 stays lit, Mickey dials out, and all the features of both phones operate as they should. BUT...and this is a big but, when I plug Mickey back into his own VoIP jack he doesn't break tone anymore. I could just decide that Mickey is incompatible with the 616 and leave it at that, but that wouldn't be any fun would it?

So, I guess this moves from being a 616 issue to being a Mickey issue.

My question now I guess is how do I wire Mickey to work in both environments?

Thanks to all for the help thus far.

I've not had one apart, but we use a 6 volt lantern where I work.  The company that manufactures them is named Star.

Hi Butch  ....   Hope things are good down your way.   This is a knee jerk brain wave on my part, ( I have the same system, except my programming model is a 61630 set ) but the programming sets all use all 4 pins in the jack.     Standard "pots" sets usually only use 2 pins, "tip" and "ring".   If a Telco tech, or anyone for that matter, took the "black & yellow" leads on the modular cord on the Mickey Mouse set, and placed them "in storage" so to speak, by placing both leads on the same terminal inside the set, that would show up as a short on the "black & yellow" leads inside the 7731 when the 2 sets tried to connect with each other.    I'm not sure what the "black & yellow" leads inside the 7731 connect to, but they'd be connected to something since I believe they are used when the set is setting up options inside the KX-T61610.

General Discussion / the Chaining switch, why?
« Last post by Babybearjs on Today at 10:19:15 PM »
 ??? after playing with and rewiring 2 20 button phones, I am asking you guys about the purpose of the chaining switch. based on the schematics, its wired in series with the T/R/A leads and I don't quite understand the purpose of a dual switching circuit. you have the switchook, which already controls the line and A-Lead circuit, plus the line key button... so, why the chaining key? an extra line of defense? or just another switch to get in the way? what have you to say about this?

Make sure that the yellow and black leads are isolated inside the telephone set  if they are on the modular jack

Is it touch tone? Because it might be the polarity guard in the phone. I've had issues with polarity guard's causing funky problems with phone lines.
Just an idea.
