Phone Cable Connections for Telephone Wiring
[ad#block]Telephone Question: I have a phone line coming from my house to my carriage house that just stopped working.
At one time this was a two phone line. Then we had the second phone number closed out.
The problem is that I forgot about the way I think I wired up the phones.
I did try to checkout the wiring with a electrical meter and there isn’t any signal.
Do you have any suggestion’s?
This electrical question came from: Mickey, a Contractor from Warwick, RI

Thanks for your electrical question Mickey.
Connections for Telephone Jack Wiring
Mickey, the nice thing about phone cables is that you almost always have a spare pair or wires.
The phone service only needs two wires so all you have to do is select two working wires and make your connections based on the colors that you use. Just transpose the colors to the wiring diagram found on the following telephone wiring diagram pages listed below.
