Panasonic (PBX) Key Systems / Re: Panasonic 616 Quit Working :-(
« Last post by SunriseEarth on Yesterday at 04:04:26 PM »
So I've decided to pull the 616 and leave it aside.   Maybe it'll come back to life in a few months.   But I did find a good deal on a 308, so I ordered that and I'll see how that works.

The "lemon" is a nice extension for your Man or Lady cave. Cleaned it up a bit added a coil and a condenser. The armor cord was bad as well as the G1. I added an F1.

Way too many hours in this. Special thanks to Ktown Jeff who helped my over the tough spots. Its dated 12 62. ...Doug

The D-180574s had dummy locks that look like the real 10H upper housing lock and 30C vault door lock, but they opened with a screwdriver. They also (usually) have a 9-digit comcode number stamped on the locks.

The announcer through the whole thing was Larry Thor. He was from Canada and all over the radio and in the movies in the 1950s as the announcer on Suspense and starring in Broadway Is My Beat on radio and he played mostly bit parts in movies as an announcer or a police detective or ship's captain. Much of his work is uncredited, but his voice was so distinctive that you can just tell it was Larry Thor.

This movie was fun to see and it's amazing what computers have done for air travel since 1965.

Collector's Corner / AE 34 No Transmission
« Last post by Doug Rose on Yesterday at 01:45:16 PM »
I picked a a real nice AE 34 on the cheap side. Beautiful condition....nice Bakelite. It tested fine with the old cords except there was no transmission. The cords were breaking apart so I replaced them. Same thing fully functional....no transmission. I swapped out the handset and there is still no transmission. I have not touched the wiring. Any ideas? I am not really an AE guy....Is the dial wired correctly? Any ideas?...thanks....Doug
