Anybody who has schematics for this one, cant get it working. :(


Sir... You dive off the deep end don't you???
Is that a transformer?
I bet if you follow pins 1 &2, and 4 & 5 to that white term strip, you can find the Vcc in???


Yes it is a small compact transformer, mot sure but I believe it is for the transfer of sound signals.


Ok, an iso transformer.
Odd that it has 2 primary windings???
Next attempt...
First pic, lower right corner, blue rectifier...
Where do the 2 yellow wires go?
Guessing that big transformer next to it?


The 2 yellow is the AC wires, and the rectifier did not work well, so I changed it.  (It had a little smoke leakage, and I was not able to put that smoke back  ;D )

When I go off hook some relay are activated, and one is pulsing when I dial, but nothing more is happening.

When I press one relay, one of the phones is ringing at 60V mains frequency (terrible sound)


That transformer has a split primary winding most likely to select 120 or 220 v taps


Power transformer: 


So, guessin you have the power part solved.
And an incoming pots line? with a couple extensions connected.
My guess would be something with the line relay contacts???
or where they go next?
unfortunately, we are at the end of my knowledge of that kind of system.
So I cannot offer much more help.
hopefully someone with background will chime in and bail me out.
Hope you get is going soon.
