Quote from: Payphone installer on April 15, 2019, 10:50:53 AMDepends on weather the Teltronics board was post pay or prepay on how it operates. since there appears to be no way left to recognize coin presence, I would assume that the circuit was modified to fake coin presence. Try reversing the polarity going into the board. If that does not work I would remove it throw it away and get the older guts.

Quote from: zzfudge on April 22, 2019, 10:55:28 AMI opened the dial housing to get a better look. With the housing attached, turning the dial even slightly allows the third (furthest right) tab to make contact and that brings a dial tone. Once the dial is released and spins back to rest, the tabs separate and the tone disappears. Should those tabs be separate? If so, how can I get a dial tone otherwise? Is there anything to do with the fourth screw connector that has nothing attached right now?
