Phone Cable Connections for Telephone Wiring
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?

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.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
